Hello po!
Like many people, I just adore Chinese food! Attending  our Chinese association events and special occasions in restaurants and hotels, I have grown to love their cuisine!

This one is a must try if you haven't been here- Oriental Palace! It's located in 148 Tomas Morato Ave. cor Scout Gandia, cor. Scout De Guia St., Brgy. Laging Handa, Quezon City, Philippines.

A Look Back on Oriental Palace's Colorful History...

Oriental Palace is owned by the family behind Mandarin Palace in Paranaque and Wah Yuen. Wah Yuen (Chinese Garden), a noodle and dimsum shop across the Love Bus in Escolta, was started in 1978 by the family patriarch, Chua Kun. He was a young cook then from Hong Kong who  dreamt of sharing authentic Chinese food to diners in Manila.

Driven by passion for good food and excellent cooking, the shop quickly became the go-to restaurant by the Chinese community and Filipino families all over the metro!

I am touched to know that even up to now, every morning, Mr. Chua himself goes to the market and handpicks the freshest catch of the day and guides the chefs in carefully preparing each dish to perfection! They have 3 in-house Hong Kong Chefs, and main herbs and spices used are even imported from Hong Kong to assure that the quality of food is authentic!

Let me say this, since I am no newcomer to fine dining and banquet halls, I am impressed with Oriental Palace!

Oriental Palace opened its doors last November 2014, but the place is well managed, looking almost brand new.
The restaurant is elegant, spacious, clean and bright.
Their comfort room has a hotel feel to it, clean and complete with amenities.
Their staff is very courteous too so it was indeed a pleasure to dine here.

The Chinese restaurant has live seafood in aquariums 

Some of Oriental Palace's bestsellers are Siao Long Bao, Peking Duck, Oyster XO, among others.
The delicious taste is brought by the care in preparing each dish and their perfect understanding of balance of flavors and textures, which comes from decades of experience!

To be honest, before going (it was my first time there), I was only expecting simple dim sum and congee, so I was thrilled to find a grand feast was in store for us!

For drinks, I asked for black gulaman.
Before the dishes were placed on the table, there is also vegetables in a saucer. (Sometimes, peanuts are served in other Chinese restaurants while waiting for your order.)
