Restaurant Review: Chowking

For a proud Filipino like me, it is always nice to hang out and eat at a restaurant that serves my kind of food. It makes me feel like I’m back home enjoying the traditional Filipino dishes. With their excellent service and delicious dishes, Chowking brings joy to customer’s faces.

Chowking’s food originally consisted of Chinese dishes, but added Filipino dishes when they established a branch in the Philippines. Their food is separated into combo plates, single orders, and desserts. They recently added Taho, which is a traditional Filipino sweet tofu with Boba and sweet syrup.

Chowking offers different varieties of combo meals. These main combo meals are the Oriental Beef Bowl ($2.39), Fried Boneless Bangus (Milkfish)($4.25), Sweet and Sour pork rice meal ($2.39), Tender Beef Broccoli Rice meal ($2.65), and the Chicken Supreme rice meal ($3.19). All of these include rice and a refillable drink of your choice.

I ordered their Fried Boneless Bangus ($4.25). This rice meal consists of two fried milkfish, a large scoop of rice, two fried eggs, and a drink of your choice. The fried bangus was mouthwatering because of their special soy sauce and the fact that it was crunchy. It really brought back the memories of my stay in the Philippines.

After my main entree, I ordered my dessert, which is Halo-Halo ($4.59), a delightful dish consisting of a blend of fruits, sweet preserves, evaporated milk, and shaved ice. It is frequently topped with a scoop of ice cream. It was refreshing and tasted sweet because of the evaporated milk, but also had a taste of mixed fruit. Overall, the Halo-Halo is a perfect dessert, especially now because summer is coming.  All together, I spent about $10 for my whole entire meal.
