Weekend Eating | Chowking Take-Out

I didn't have anything planned last weekend, so I thought what I will share for today was something I cooked, but yesterday afternoon, sister asked me to come with her because mom wanted Chowking for dinner. We can opt for calling the hotline and order some for delivery, but sister thought it would take time. Honestly, I can't think of what I want, but for the sake of walking (out of the subdivision), I came with my sis.


Lomi. Initially, I was thinking of ordering siomai and lumpiang shanghai, but seeing a picture of their lomi on the counter looking yummy, I told sister I'd just go for this and some siomai. When we got home and opened the bowl, it didn't look as appetizing as the one on the picture, but it was hot and slightly okay. Mom and I shared this.


Siomai. Chowking's siomai is mom's current favorite food. Whenever we go out, she would always request us to go to Chowking so she could eat this. Anyway, she told sister she wanted two orders of siomai... so we bought 5 sets - two for mom, one each for us siblings.

Chicken Lauriat

Chicken Lauriat. Sister's meal. I am not a big fan of Chowking's fried chicken (though I liked their Chinese Style fried chicken), so I didn't find this appetizing. Sister was complaining that they didn't include gravy in it (the staff at Chowking assured us that it was complete), so she didn't really enjoy her meal. She also ordered a cup of Nai-Cha, but she already sipped it all before we got home, so I wasn't able to take a picture of it.

Mom and I found the lomi a bit bland, and for 79 pesos, I didn't think it was a good buy (as it didn't have much noodles). Well, I guess I will just stick to siomai and lumpiang shanghai, or maybe go for wanton mami should we eat or take out food from Chowking again.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
