Feng Wei Wee
July 20, 2011
I always had this impression that Feng Wei Wee serves delicious food. So when my friends asked where we can eat for dinner at Greenhills area, I recommended Feng Wei Wee. I noticed that it was newly opened and it looked high-end, definitely a very upgraded version of their Banawe, QC branch.
As we entered the place, we immediately noticed the bakery inside the restaurant. We initially thought that the bakery is part of the restaurant but it’s not. It’s actually Formosa Bakery. What’s really interesting is that the owners of Formosa Bakery and Feng Wei Wee doesn’t know each other but they share the same space.
We went there for Feng Wei Wee so we continued on and searched for seats. We loved the ambiance! Feng Wei Wee was well-lighted and the chairs were pretty comfortable to sit in too! I also appreciate good customer service. The server was ready to recommend dishes and explain what they are. It didn’t take a long time for us to order. I was sure that based on my previous experience with the restaurant, the food will be good. There’s a huge difference between the 2 branches though as I remember the Banawe branch to have a canteen setup. I wonder if they changed their style there.
Without further ado, here’s a list of our orders:
- Kong Pao Chicken (Php 250)
I was expecting something different so I was a bit disappointed when I saw the dish. When I got to taste it, I realized I didn’t like the taste either 🙁 Don’t get me wrong. My friends loved it! I guess the different flavors put into Feng Wei Wee’s version of Kong Pao Chicken wasn’t something I would like. I initially thought that the dish would have so much spice & nuts plus the chicken would be fried & crispy but I was wrong. Oh well.
- Salt & Pepper Spareribs (Php 250)
There isn’t much difference with this dish compared to other restaurants’ version but I must say that Feng Wei Wee cooked it perfectly. It has the perfect combination of spices. The pork was crispy too! The important thing for me is that the meat wasn’t chewy like a bubble gum (I’m very particular with that).
- Cuchay Tokwa (Php 200)
I’m delighted that we followed the server’s advice for us to order Cuchay Tokwa. Cuchay is basically a type of vegetable and tofu is obviously tofu 😛 I loved the combination of the two. I wish we could have more but the serving is only good for 2-3 persons.
- Taiwan Fried Rice (Php 250)
Most of the fried rice dishes in the menu is good for one. As for sharing, we had a choice between Yang Chow and Taiwan fried rice. Taiwan fried rice was recommended. The rice was definitely a tasty one. It had so many ingredients in it, like chinese sausage, onions, eggs and some other stuff I can’t name anymore. I do admit that I love to share my foodie experience through this blog but I’m really not an expert with food and worse, I can’t even cook. So I hope you don’t expect too much from me.
- Jasmine Tea (free)
Last, but definitely not the least, the Jasmine Tea. Yes, it was a service tea and freely served. But the jasmine tea was just too good! Even if we were just 6, we requested for two tea pots in our table.
You see, even my friends readily posed for the camera with the Jasmine tea! This picture should pass as a marketing material hahaha!
I’m just glad Feng Wei Wee has turned into an established restaurant. Good job to the owners! Before I forget, it’s Feng Wei Wee and not Feng Wei Wei (I had it misspelled for the longest time! just check my previous post) 😛
