We went to Old Chinatown Kopitiam to celebrate Joanne’s & Ronald’s Birthday. It was truly well attended as barkadas on both sides attended the celebration.

There were truly a LOT of food… and here are some of what we ordered:

  • Maya Maya Soup (Php 558)

This one I love very very much! It tasted soooooo good! I’m not fond of soups w/ fish but this one I can’t resist. You must order this if you plan to order soup in Old ChinaTown Kopitiam.

  • Mushroom Fried Rice (Php 298)

this is ok… nothing special

  • Spicy Gong Bao Chicken w/ Cashew (Php 198)

Not my favorite… I didn’t feel it’s spicy enough

  • Old Chinatown Signature Mee (Php 198)

The birthday celebrants ordered quite a few variants of noodles.. and I can’t seem to distinguish one from the other hehehee

  • Claypot Beef Kienchi (Php 228)

beef stew.. normal also

  • Kopi Spareribs (Php 188)

When it comes to spareribs, I always prefer the salt & pepper one. So I didn’t appreciate this much though I must admit this tasted good too

  • Hokkien Mee (Php 348)

  • Bah Kut Teh (Php 578)

I really love the soups of this restaurant. This one is advertised as a healthy soup. Meat were cooked with 16 herbs & spices… yummy

  • Beef Char Kway w/ Bittermelon (Php 378)

  • Fresh Spinach w/ Scallops (Php 188)

  • Char Kway Teow (Php 228)

  • Crispy Pork Belly (Php 188)

  • Claypot Pork Belly w/ Salted Fish (Php 198)

  • Oatmeal Prawns (Php 598)

I was extremely excited to try this dish but unfortunately, I was disappointed. I guess this is because I first tried this dish at Palm Beach (located in Fort)… I thought that it would taste the same.. I guess it’s really incomparable

  • King Fish w/ Spicy Meat Sauce (Php 248)

I forgot to taste this! hahahaha I was distracted already coz we started taking pictures.

  • Claypot Chicken Rice (Php 328)

  • Chilled Almond (Php 48)

It’s more of a dessert than a drink, I always order almond juice if it’s available. In this case, I’d rather drink the service tea provided ehhehe

Overall, I still think that the food is really good. This was already my 2nd time here in the restaurant and I still feel that you can find better tasting food here. A must-try if you’re in Quezon City area.

    wow…Singapore food. the char kuey tiaw and the bah kut teh are classics. it’s a bit pricey but still cheaper than a plane ticket to Singapore. 😉 I wonder about its taste. Authentic or Filipinized? =)
