Luk Yuen, My Comfort Food Discovery in Makati.

Golden Fried Chicken

I’ve been in a search for the best authentic Chinese restaurants in Manila. Luckily, my brother’s visit (from Hong Kong)┬ápaved the way for me to Luk Yuen, Cash and Carry, Makati city.

The place was bustling with Filipino-Chinese patrons, which clearly meant to me as the go to place for Chinese authentic dishes, particularly Cantonese.

Though, I wasn’t able to taste all of the food that has been served, the empty platters indicate that Luk Yuen’s roster of dishes were delicious.

For appetizers, we ordered Chicken Feet with Chili and Seafood Rolls Wrapped in Seaweed. I was not able to taste the Chicken Feet, but I got to taste the Seafood Rolls. The taste of the Seafood Rolls were delightful. A bit crunchy and perfect with the sweet and sour sauce that went with it.

For vegetarians, the Seasonal Vegetables in Oyster Sauce proved to be a very good part of a lunch meal. Noticeaably, Bok Choys were used in this recipe. Bok Choys for those who didn’t know, is a type of cabbage that can be found in Southeast Asia and Northern Europe.

Luk Yuen’s Deep Fried Bean Curd was gorgeously crisp and delectable. I normally couldn’t cook tofu as good as this. Fried to perfection, this selection proves to be a very good choice to vegans looking for alternative lunch food.

Luk Yuen’s Golden Fried Chicken has an authentic Cantonese flavor infused in it. The chicken skin was crispy and overall, it was delicious when paired with Luk Yuen’s special sauce.

The Fried Noodles with Shredded Pork brought back memories of me and my mom, when we usually dine out in Chinatown or with relatives. A good choice when you have a chance to pass by or buy something imported in Cash and Carry.
