There were actually 3 Set Menus to choose from, we chose Set Menu B.  The price is not that bad since it’s 50% off!  I’ve already made reservations for next Saturday at around 8pm.  We will be celebrating my mom’s birthday.

The Set Menu B consists of:

Eight treasures shrimp soup


Crispy Fried Asado roll


Seafood with Gold mushroom XO sauce


Steamed Lotus leaf glutinous rice with chicken


Fried spareribs with Shrimp sauce


Fujian fried noodles


Taho

 

Additional Dishes Ordered:

Sweet & Sour Pork

 

Chicken & Prawn Salad (should have been named Chicken Salad only, since there were only 2 prawns included in the dish!)

Update:  We were quite disappointed with the turn out of our dinner.  For the price, even if already at 50% off, we think it wasn’t worth it!  We could have gotten more of what we paid for in other Chinese restaurants.  Maybe we were just expecting too much!  The taste of the dishes was just so-so.  It’s like we’ve eaten at a non-Chinese restaurant.  The serving wasn’t the normal size that would be enough for 8 persons.  So we decided to order 2 more dishes.  That night, even a Saturday, there weren’t too many people dining at the Podium Branch, so you guessed it, service wasn’t that good either.  They served everything all at the same time.  In a hurry?  Isn’t lauriat supposed to be served one after the other?  Or at least, they let us savor the dish first before serving the next.  Even the trademark Taho wasn’t good!  Our neighborhood Taho vendor serves taho better!

There were only 2 things I was happy about with this experience.  First was that they didn’t charge us for the cake we brought in.  Lastly, they didn’t ask us to leave when they closed.  (We were the last diners there!)

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this voucher a 4!  And I wouldn’t recommend this branch to anyone.  I still prefer the original Gloria Maris in Greenhills, San Juan.
