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!!!
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.
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/)
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.)
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?
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. =))
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!
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
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.
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. ♪ ♫
