Besides boasting about its exceptional services, Mandarin Oriental is known for its restaurants, namely Paseo Uno and Tin Hau. My family recently ate at Tin Hau while we were checked in at the hotel. All I can say is that this is one of the best, if not the best Chinese restaurant in town.
Jason and I got the Set Menu 1, while my parents and shobe got the Set Menu 2. Their Privilege Club Set Menus are Php 850+++ per person and are good for 2. (exclusive of government taxes, local taxes and service charge)
For starters they served us with one of the best "service peanuts" (if you get what I mean). Then followed by our Sio Mai and Scallop dimsum. Heavenly!
Then came the Braised Fish Soup, Auntie Song style.
I didn't know what was the Auntie Song style all about when I was sipping the hot yummy soup. It was until I researched later did I know that Auntie Song is supposedly a famous cook in Hang Zhou, from the Nan Song Dynasty, 800 years back up to the present. (talk about recipe perfection).
the Chicken stewed with eggplant, Szechuan Style,
and then the Crisp fried shrimp with sliced almonds and mayonnaise.
Lychee with almonds came for dessert. The best lychee and almonds ever.
Later that evening, we came back again for the Dimsum Platter. I tell you, their dimsum's to die for. It's a MUST TRY when you eat at Tin Hau.
