Charlie Wanton Special

Hubby and I have been running around town the whole day today so come dinner time, my energy failed me in the kitchen and I still have to feed hubby and daughter.

Luckily, our house is just walking distance from these fastfood restos --- Shakey's, Jollibee, KFC and Chowking. Then there's also Aling Banang's (tapsilogan), Hosena's (bulalo et al), several lechon manok stalls, numerous carinderias, and Hypermart (lots of food stalls that includes a Mang Inasal branch). But we decided to walk farther (free exercise) until we reached Charlie's.




 Charlie's is a Chinese restaurant that serves different kinds of noodles and more than several dishes plus yummy lechon kawali than dimsum. I won't recommend their dimsum (its not their strongest point) except for the bola-bola siopao that will give Emerald a fair competition.



Hubby was craving for some noodles so he got a big bowl of Special Beef Mami. I guess he was really craving for it because he attacked the noodles as soon as the waiter set it down in front of him.

Daughter and I opted to share the Squid in Oyster Sauce and Lumpiang Shanghai.

The Squid was literally swimming in oyster sauce but don't let the unsightly dish fool you. It taste very, very good. Although I won't mind a much softer squid next time because the one that we ate were not that soft but not hard either. The bell peppers also added a nice flavor to the dish and it was cooked just right.



Lumpiang Shanghai. This is another bestseller at Charlie's. The meat is not malansa and oily. I wonder how they do it but I don't want to ask. I'll just order this again and again. It comes with a sweet and sour sauce also but daughter and I prefer to eat our lumpia without sauce.



Looking forward to our next visit to Charlie's again. :)

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others. But of course, every one is always excited when there's something new on the menu and Max's has two new dishes- Adobo Ribs and Beef Salpicao.
