Mala Tang

Hole in the wall discovery in San Juan. We have been trying to dine here for the longest time but parking was always a problem. So when we passed by and there’s a space available, we parked right away!

It’s just really a small place so timing is everything both for parking and getting a table.

Mala Tang serves Authentic Hong Kong Roasts. They are also quite famous for their noodles too!

We ordered their Pork Asado Roast with Noodles, it is so good. Tender pork meat and yummy sauce. One of the best Char Sius ever.

Their Lechon Macau is a close second. Usually the fat part is really thick, but theirs wasn’t. The skin is crunchy.

Tried their Crispy Fried Wonton. It’s very oily but the wonton wrapper is very crunchy and the filling tastes good.

You can also make your own Shabu Shabu. For as low as Php155.00, you can choose 4 toppings. There’s a variety of balls, noodles and veggies to choose from.

Check out their Menu below. I just hope they update it to look neater.

Mala Tang is one of those underrated restos that nobody talks about but it surely is one of the good ones.

That being said, if you’re around San Juan and craving for authentic Hong Kong food, this is the place to go.

Happy eating!

Hawker Chan

Hawker Chan was started as an ordinary hawker stall in Singapore by Chef Chan Hong Meng. It became famous when its Soya Sauce Chicken was awarded the Michelin Star. It is now known as the World’s Cheapest Meal to be Awarded One Michelin Star.

Hawker Chan’s Famous Roasts

Hawker Chan has opened multiple branches in the Philippines and one of the branches is located in Ayala Malls Manila Bay. Foodee Global Concepts brought the Hawker Chan to the Philippines.

We had the chance to dine there recently and here’s what we ordered.

Soya Sauce Chicken Rice – Php128.00

For its price, you get to experience what a meal awarded with a Michelin star tastes like. It’s tasty and flavorful. Definitely worth it.

Three Meat Platter – Soya Sauce Chicken, Char Siew and Roast Pork – Php298.00

Getting the Three Meat Platter will let you taste all the signature dishes in one sitting. Add an extra order of rice or vegetable noodles and you’re good to go. This meal is for sharing.

Of course, the Soya Sauce Chicken is so good. I love it. I will choose the Roast Pork over the Char Siew. Tasted better Char Siew. ✌️

Hawker Chan Vegetable Noodles – Php90.00

The vegetable noodles is a better choice than the rice. Its flavorful and it’s healthier. 😉

Beef Brisket Rice – Php158.00

This one’s a little different from their usual roasts, but it’s so tender it almost melts in your mouth.

Bah Kut Teh – Pork Ribs Tea Soup

A Singapore staple, the Bah Kut Teh is a pork rib broth with herbs and spices. Hawker Chan’s version is good especially if you’re feeling a little low and needs an extra boost in your system.

Seasonal Vegetables – Php99.00

Always order a vegetable dish every meal.

Wonton Noodle Soup – Php129.00

This Wonton Soup is not your typical Chinese Resto Wonton Soup. It tastes different so this doesn’t get a thumbs up.

If you’re a fan of Soy Chicken like me, their Soya Sauce Chicken is a must try, pair it with the vegetable noodles though. Plus, they have peanuts as side dish.

Do visit the nearest Hawker Chan near you. They now have 7 branches. Check out their Facebook page Hawker Chan Philippines for promos and updates.

Ciao!
