Kung Fu Feasting at Kung Fu Kitchen

Let me begin this post with a greeting to you, my foodie friends, from all of us ( X+1n) at http://www.findgoodbaguiofoods.com

Gong Xi Fa Cai!!!

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio dining scene

X+1 and the “China men from funky Chinatown” – Kung Fu masters’ effigy on walls (from the most popular Chinese movies, we believe … although I don’t think I saw my favorite, Jet Li there. Thinking about his germs in the hospital line in The One now *heee The way he said ‘germs’, so amusing to me).

Naturally, our first post for the year of the wooden horse is Chinese themed.  Let’s begin our discussion (in photos … maybe *snickers) on our most recent food adventure to a newly opened establishment in Baguio CJH … couldn’t help checking them out on their soft opening phase *hihi.

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio sign

Welcome, welcome. *lots of bowing =)

Now, we’ve got two Asian ‘sports’ restos on both ends of this Technohub building, Sumo Sam and this.  Fancy eating Chinese cuisine? Let your guard down for a moment, Kung Fu masters in training and start feasting.

As you can see, there’s lots of appetizing stuff to satisfy your hunger and your cravings with at Kung Fu Kitchen.  (Saw a dimsum weekday buffet special too when I was doing some research on this place. Ohh, can’t wait to have that happening here, can we, eatcentrics? On with the steamer stacking! \m/)

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio mango yogurt milk tea

Milk tea – mango yogurt mix =)

As chilly as it was (still is), I got myself a glass of ‘milk tea’. It’s the photo of the shakes that caught my attention. =b  I didn’t get an inkling of tea in this drink. However, it was true to its name, mango yogurt … with tapioca (and ice, yikes!), period.  (With the  Kung Fu Kitchen door closed, it was warm and toasty inside the restaurant. Also, they served complimentary soothing-in-its-warmth tea. – next photo please.)

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio complimentary tea

Complimentary tea (in the background) that the staff served as “fast as lightning ♪ ♫”. =D

Of course, the next dish is a must try, if only to quell my curiosity about it. Cue Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods. Time to get back at the little buggers, I thought. So, you thought you had the last laugh when you stung my loved ones at the beach, huh?

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio jelly fish with century egg

Jellyfish with century egg

One bite of the jellyfish strips and my fighting confidence was lost.  =S Chewy and juicy with a strong whiff of the sea that made me feel like I was standing right on the shore, “it was a  little bit fright’ning ♪ ♫”  An acquired taste, I’m sure …  which I didn’t acquire. OMG, let met at the tea again. =))

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio seafood spinach

Seafood spinach soup

The bowl of soup was an afterthought to the whole meal, I got too cold from my iced (emphasis on ice) milk tea.  *tigerger tigerger  A nice little bowl with bits of tofu, mushrooms and jelly-like seafood pieces. Jellyfish, is that you again? Stop chopping me up and chopping me down already!

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio char siu pork

Char siu pork (“,)

A.K.A fork roast, barbecued pork. These slices of meat were like a cross between chorizo and asado. It was so tender delicious, we totally forgot about the nutty thick sauce that it was served with.  The sauce under the pork slices worked well enough drizzled on rice. *nomnomnom

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio steamed cua pao with condensed milk

Steamed cua pao served with a condensed milk dip

Insofar as our Kung Fu feast at the kitchen was a bit on the meager side, Race and I didn’t let dessert pass.  Race got the simple but tasty cua pao (buns without the … pow!/meat stuffing ^^,) .  He chose to get it the traditional way – steamed.  You can get it fried, if you want.  He said it tasted even better dipped in the condensed milk.

Kung Fu Kitchen Baguio coconut cream jelly

Coconut cream jelly ^^,

Firm almost like nata, I enjoyed this equally simple … but pretty dessert. It didn’t enlighten me about what coconut cream is supposed to taste like but oh, well.  Just like the mango yogurt milk tea, they must’ve meant coconut and cream made into jelly, period. =))

X marks Kung Fu Kitchen for good food in Baguio.  

♪ ♫ “Let’s get it on. 

We took a bow and made a stand,

started swinging with the hand. 

The sudden motion made me skip,

now we’re into a brand new trip. 

Everybody was kung-fu” … feasting. ♪ ♫
