Emerald Garden Restaurant has been acclaimed as one of the culinary institutions amongst the restaurant communities all over Manila Bay. It has been so because for one, they know their market and so well and they serve them accordingly, giving a justice not only to their discriminating palate but to their seemingly unsettling gastronome and unquenching appetite.
Fused with an impeccable brand of service, the restaurant is one of those treasure troves that makes you want for more and your only limitation is your stomach space.
It was Saturday that the Board of Directors met to discuss on our 10th year souvenir program where I was hailed as a Project Lead Editor. So the gang decided to converge at one of the most renowned dining spots at the Roxas Boulevard area.
Buttered Shrimps - garlic buttered shrimps in an unforgiving, profusely no-holds-barred quantity. It's like having your own catch served right up to your table.
They also serve hot tea in a pot and salted nuts as appetizer(both are not in the picture).
Yang Chow Fried Rice - basic staple, served just right and not greasy.
Spinach Soup - hot and an appetite accelerator.
Assorted Cold Cuts - Never ever forget this, this is just right to get you excited and throttle all the way up to your last bite.
My rule of thumb to measure the delectability quotient and authenticity of a Chinese cuisine is how well they do on a Sweet and Sour Pork and Beef with Broccoli. And theirs is really good and the thickness of soup just defined the flavor.
Steamed Lapulapu - this is cooked in soy sauce and green onions topped with a generous heap of fried garlic.
Mango Sango - thought they are going to put this in a glass but i was surprised they put it in a bowl. Fresh mango squeezed and less water makes this dessert really mouthwatering.
To say that their serving size is comparative to a supermassive Black Hole is an underestimation. Be sure to come here and measure up in a fairly empty gastric tank.
