Lugang Cafe: Authentic Taiwanese and Cantonese Cuisine


Last Sunday, my brother Migo made reservations at this new Chinese restaurant along Connecticut, Greenhills. Apparently, this place is always full so reservations are very much required especially on weekends. We were lucky because it turns out that the family of Migo's really good friend is one of the partners (It's operated by the Bellagio Group of Companies). Because of this, we were given special treatment and put in their VIP room on the second floor.

Interiors : Very Modern, Purple, White & Gold theme, High Celing...not your usual Chinese resto look!

We started off with some Assorted Cold Cuts

Pork Xiao Long Bao (Php 188.00) & Steamed Crab Roe & Pork Xiao Long Bao (Php 228.00) - The wrapper was light, thin and delicate and it kept the soup inside. The pork and crab though wasn't as good as Cyrstal Jade's and Din Tai Fung. So for me, its a  7.5 out of 10.
However, I think Henri thought it deserved more of a 9/10...hahaha! He loved it! We actually had to order another pork one because he wanted some more.


Garlic Pork Roll (Php 160.00) - This was surprisingly good... the wrapper was a thin slice of pork!

Milk Tea with Tapioca (Php 70.00)

Here are the other dishes we sampled;

Stir-fried Spinach (Php 250.00)

Taiwanese Fried Beancurd (Php 220.00)

Left - Stir Fried Beef with Chili (Php280.00)
Right - Three Cup Chicken (Php 290.00) - I would recommend this main dish, the sauce was rich and very flavorful!

Dessert : Mango Shaved Ice (good for 4-5) - The ice was was really thinly shaved and felt like fresh snow inside your mouth! We all wanted to try the Durian flavor but it wasn't available. Boo :(

When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the image of a

Therefore that's why this paragraph is outstdanding. Thanks!

I leave a comment when I like a post on a site or if I
have something to contribute to the discussion.

Usually it is caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I read.
And after this article "Lugang Cafe: Authentic Taiwanese and Cantonese Cuisine".

I was excited enough to post a thought ;-) I do have a
few questions for you if it's okay. Is it simply me or do a few of the responses appear like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you list all of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
