Winter Garden At The China Palace

One fine Saturday, the family (including a balikbayan aunt and a Dutch uncle) found ourselves in the highlands. The travel was really uneventful especially for me- I slept the whole nine yards. Then there's the picture-taking session with Taal Volcano as the backdrop. The ducks were missing from the pond. Did we just ordered roast duck?! Hehehe.

These are what we ate and some others ...




Roast Chicken. The kids love the kropek! ;) Well, the chicken was delicious but still, kropek is kropek especially if there are kids around.






Sweet and Sour Pork. I find this dish too sweet and the meat was not as tender as I want it to be. Sorry, not a fan of this dish.



Prawn Salad. The cream was overwhelming- literally (as shown on the photo). You won't even know its prawn salad because it has tons of peaches, pineapples, grapes and cherries. Also, the prawns are sliced into halves. I guess this dish costs way too much for a fruit salad. :P




Cold-Cuts Platter. Excellent! Especially the jellyfish and the century egg. Love, love, love.




Birthday Noodles (I think). Didn't touch this dish because I don't find it appealing. Literally swimming in sauce!



We avoided the lunch crowd so we had a nice and quiet lunch while enjoying the view and the cool breeze.
