After watching the fashion show held by SM City Fairview, I, together with my blogger friends, went to the newly opened King Bee Restaurant located at Commonwealth, Quezon City, to have and experience a Chinese food galore.

King Bee Chinese Restaurant is a fast growing Chinese restaurant because as of this writing, the Commonwealth branch is the largest (because it has function rooms and can accommodate more than 200 persons) and newest King Bee branch since it has started and originated in Brgy. Manggahan, General Trias, Cavite on August 17, 2001. King Bee Restaurant name is come from the surname of the owner Mrs. Ang Ong King Bee.

I was fascinated with the interior design King Bee Restaurant had as I entered the façade. The bright yellow chairs cover with Chinese characters embedded on it gives a vibrant aura whoever enters the restaurant. The quite so modern Chinese lamps all over the restaurant are also giving a positive vibes.

Chinese known for dimsums, noodles, roasts and etc., which are also part of the King Bee’s menu. Without further ado, let me share with you guys what we’ve feasted on that day. A sumptuous meal that didn’t fail to satisfy us and let us to leave the place with numerous burped.

Winter Melon Soup. Oh Boy! This was sooo good! And by the way, it was my first time to see a huge kundol. It contains shrimp and other veggies on which I don’t know yet their names (shame on me!). The taste was flavorful and best serve when it is hot. Just a heads-up, a Winter Melon Soup alone can make you full. Meanwhile, the food presentation was so appealing and inviting.

Bird Siomai, Pork Siomai and Chicken Feet

Dimsum. Bird Siomai, Pork Siomai and the well-known Chicken Feet are the sets of dimsum served to us. It was my first time to eat Bird Siomai and I liked it, well, it just tasted like a shrimp so I bet, you will like it too. Chicken feet were delicious and cooked well.

House Specialty Roast Chicken

House Specialty Roast Chicken. Hmmm… well, I guess, chicken is a must on every festivity because we had the King Bee’s House Specialty Roast Chicken. The chicken meat was tender and juicy. Plus, the meat was tasty maybe because of their special recipe or was marinated on a special spices and/or sauce that you don’t need to eat it with a sauce or gravy.

Sliced Beef with Broccoli Flowers

Sliced Beef with Broccoli Flowers. Another must have on our table whenever we eat at a Chinese restaurant. I liked the freshness of the broccoli flowers and the softness of sliced beef. The sauce was delicious but quite sweet though.

Sauteed Crystal Prawn Balls with Cashew Nuts in Taro Nest. This dish was pretty good… I mean… awesome that made us eat everything. The Prawns were perfectly cooked and the cashew nuts added some twist to the dish. We’ve also eaten the Taro Nest because the taste was indulging.

King Fish in Thai Sauce

King Fish in Thai Sauce. King Fish is it! I liked how the fish was well-cooked. It has no pungent taste and really like its plating, it was so pleasing. The green mango strip and the Thai sauce also added some kick which was so appetizing.

Chinese Pastries

Oh boy, I don’t know yet its name because they are still finalizing for it. One bite and you would be addicted to it! Then, this could be a mouthwatering and delightful addiction. ^_^

Mixed Fruits Platter

Stackers Burger Cafe

Nowadays, where everyone has started living an active and healthy lifestyle, we are now become more conscious of the food we eat. We already started reading the labels of any food we ought to buy in groceries and the likes. And since most us, Filipinos, loves to eat fried chicken, Stackers Burger Café came out with another innovation in terms of our health well-being - the Baked Fried Chicken.

Stackers Burger Cafe Baked Fried Chicken

 Hmmm… Interesting, huh? Yes, when I heard about it I am quite intrigued of it. How come that Stackers Burger Café’s Baked Fried Chicken can be more auss’mly healthy compared to other fast food? From the time when the chicken is baked until it turns out to be a golden brown, we are assured that the “Baked Fried Chicken” is definitely lighter and healthier because it is 80% less oil.

Baked Fried Chicken comes along with either rice or fries wherein 1-pc is for P95. I had it with fries and at the same time, I ordered Garlic Fries for P65 plus the Auss’m Caramel for only P75 to complete my meal.  A hearty and healthy meal, indeed! I liked the softness and tenderness of the chicken meat inside and of course the crispiness of the outside. At first glance, you wouldn’t notice that it was baked because the look and taste are of similar with the regular fried chicken available around the metro.

Such a great treat to all foodie buffs that are health conscious. You may now enjoy your fried chicken the way it is and enjoying it on the same time having lesser cholesterol but of the same taste.
