Sihk faahn! It’s how you say Bon appétit in Cantonese (thank you Google, lol). I am in the mood to utter that because of the delightful dining experience I recently had at Choi Garden. I have to admit that I didn’t have a room for foreign delicacies before, but Choi Garden changed that. I bet that my monthly craving will now include Peking Duck, Dimsum and the likes.
It’s no wonder why Choi Garden became a hit even among Filipino Communities. They do serve authentic Cantonese dishes, and how would you know if a dish is an authentic Cantonese? Well, according to my little research, the flavours of a finished dish should be well balanced and not greasy, spices should be used in modest amounts to avoid overwhelming the flavours of the primary ingredients, and these ingredients in turn should be at the peak of their freshness and quality. These are what many traditional Cantonese cooks live by.
As for Choi Garden, there is a Cantonese Culinary Team behind it which is composed of Hong Kong Chefs who possess numerous years of knowledge, skills and experience in perfecting their crafts. Their team is proud to offer their finest dishes that will surely bring delight to one’s taste buds and satisfaction to demanding tummies.
Starting from their widely known Roasting Selection such as the tastefully prepared BBQ Pork Asado with Honey Sauce, to the flavourful and crispy skin of their Roasted Peking Duck and to their mouth-watering take to the Roasted Chicken, Live Seafood Selections such as the Steamed Live Grouper and Steamed Live Suahe, to their fulfilling serving of Chinese Baked Rice Meals and their Best Selling Dimsum Selection composed of their Best Asado Bun, Steamed Siomai, Steamed Hakaw, Pan Fried Radish Cake and Old Fashioned Steamed Machang among others.
Choi Garden SM Megamall also offers dishes that are good for sharing such as the Szechuan Hot and Sour Soup, Sweet and Sour Pork, Beef Ribs with Black Pepper Sauce and a whole lot more.
Let us also give credit to the man who started it all, Mr. Choi Tak Pui, a Hong Kong-based culinary expert, who yearned to bring the taste of Authentic Cantonese Cuisine into the Philippines.
He has established his first restaurant in Annapolis, Greenhills; where the current Choi Garden main branch resides. From then on, Choi Garden Greenhills has been a huge success to both the Chinese and Filipino Communities. This passion of Mr. Choi has spread out throughout the country as the branches of Choi Garden continue to expand. Choi Garden is now serving in SM Megamall, aiming to indulge a bigger audience. It introduced their casual dining style while still embodying the quality and exquisite taste of Authentic Cantonese Cuisine that is being carried by Choi Garden them self.
Apart from serving Authentic Cantonese Dishes, Choi Garden SM Megamall allows customers to enjoy noodles the way they like it, diners create their own Shabu Shabu Noodle Bowl by choosing their type of Noodles (Hong Kong Noodle, Hong Kong Bihon, Ramen or Sotanghon), decide on their preferred Soup Base (Double Boiled Pork Bone or Szechuan Spicy Soup) and select their own 3 Toppings from the wide selection (Hong Kong Curry Fish Ball, Hong Kong Beef Ball, Gindara Tofu, Cheese Fish Bun, Sea Urchin Bun, Braised Pig Knuckle, Beef Brisket Tendon, BBQ Pork Asado and others) which comes with a Soy Egg, the Best Asado Bun and Choi Garden’s very own House Blend Iced Tea. The majority of the ingredients were imported from Hong Kong to maintain the quality and taste.
