I don't really know the insane extent of my "dimsum dementia" that it brought me to the country's classiest Chinese restaurant nestled at the top floor of Greenbelt 5. The name of the restaurant is Peking Garden.
Renowned for its famed Peking Duck, this HongKong-affiliated restaurant serves the best in its class. The Peking Duck, crisp and deftly sliced by the server, one that you can wrap in dough pancakes minced with cabbage leaf, or with lettuce in broth, or even with scallions and sauce, received a rippling undulation from the foodie community at large. One, accordingly, can even create his own idea of engorging it to his ultimate satisfaction.
The restaurant's interior is a fusion of traditional Chinese with modern design elements, wood panels combined with glass and glitzy chandeliers. Even their aircon vent is exquisitely decorated.
I can't order roast duck, come on, it's a whole duck. My gastronome is not an endless pit of digestible stuff. So I got myself a Noodles with Dice Chicken & Vegetable(Php200 + 10%SC), Steamed Supreme Special Pork Dumpling(Php180 + 10%SC for 5pieces), Steamed Vegetable Dumpling(Php180 + 10%SC for 4pieces), Shrimp Dumplings(Php160 + 10%SC for 5pieces), and a Fresh Orange Juice(Php118 + 10%SC) to cap it off. Unlike most Chinese restos, their dumplings is served in a steamer with cabbage. The soup is a bit sour but I think that is how authentic Chinese restaurants cook it. You have to be careful with the Pork Dumpling because the sauce inside will spurt upon your first bite.
One can get a courtesy appetizer which is a Fried Wanton Wrapper. You can even ask for refill if you want.
The waiter(I think he is the head waiter or probably the restaurant manager) has a distinct Chinese accent, an authenticity of sort one couldn't dismiss.
Everything else is delish, but I was hoping I can grab Peking Duck next time once I will be able to grab a company. Or perhaps go there at an empty stomach.
Peking Garden... northern Chinese cuisine at its finest.
