Golden Fortune Shabu-Shabu and Dimsum Buffet

Golden Fortune Shabu-Shabu and Dimsum Buffet

During these rainy days, I usually have cravings for Shabu-Shabu. Not that it only gives warmth every time I sip its broth but it also tests my patience while waiting for the ingredients to cook. Shabu-shabu is not for impatient people. 😀

Our foodie friend Nina has been recommending us to try Golden Fortune because they have a Shabu-Shabu and Dimsum buffet promo. So one drizzling evening from Greenbelt Makati, we took a cab and immediately rushed to Binondo. We arrived early so we decided to stay at the Mezzanine Cafe first then at 8:45 pm, we started walking towards Golden Fortune. The place was almost filled up when we arrived there and as the buffet hours go by, more and more eager customers are coming in. I’ve never been to this place before and was surprised that at those hours (9:00 pm onwards), there are people actually going there to eat!

Our first stop of our food tripping in Laoag began in Saramsam Ylocano Restaurant. I was very eager to dine at this restaurant because of its popularity among gourmands. They also serve local Ilocano cuisine but they have created a buzz because their Ilocano – Western fusion dishes.

We went there on two separate instances so that we will be able to taste more of their dishes. Although food from this restaurant can be ordered from Balay da Blas, we still go to the restaurant because of the ambiance and food presentation. By the way, the restaurant and the pension house we stayed are owned by the same person, Mr. Samuel Blas. Here are the dishes that we ordered and we recommend you to try when you decide to dine at Saramsam.  Continue reading “Experience Laoag Gourmet Food in Saramsam Ylocano Restaurant”

Kanzhu – Our New Favorite Noodles Place

Braised Beef Noodle Soup at Kanzhu - 2

Special Braised Beef Noodle Soup @ PHP 145

Just like Po of Kung Fu Panda, I love noodles.  Nothing beats sipping hot broth paired with freshly pulled noodles. This is comfort food for me, especially during rainy days. I’ve discovered a new favorite noodles place which is Kanzhu Hand Pulled Noodles located in J. Abad Santos Street in San Juan. This street is home to my favorite comfort food places: Chicken Charlie and Serenitea.

This restaurant was previously known as Beijing Hand Pulled Noodles, a place where I have always been curious of but never had the chance to try. Many say that with its new name now, the taste is better and there are more variation in the menu.

Of course, I ordered the specialty of the house “Special Braised Beef Noodle Soup” which I love. The broth is really tasty and I love the noodles! It has a hefty amount of tender braised beef. Continue reading “Kanzhu – Our New Favorite Noodles Place”
