Tsim Sha Tsui, The Terraces-Ayala Center, Cebu City

After roaming around the entire shopping mall in Ayala Center, I got so tired and hungry and I want to eat a lot but for a limited budget. As I was walking and looking at the restaurants at the Terraces, I noticed this Chinese restaurant that looks so clean and inviting.

Thanks to for this particular photo
When I get inside, I immediately asked for the menu because I was terribly hungry and I didn't even bother checking the interior of this restaurant anymore. Here's what I ordered:

Steamed Fried Rice - Php88.00
In fairness, this restaurant is generous when it comes to the meat for this dish. There is nothing really special about this viand and rice combination.

Steamed Crab and Shrimp Balls - Php78.00
I love this because its flavor is right on the spot. You can really taste the crab and shrimp in it plus it is served in three different sauces. The meat is really juicy and flavorful. This is perfect with the ginger sauce.

Hong Chong Fried Mix Vegetable - Php68.00
This is made of three different kinds of mushroom with broccoli in oyster sauce. This is one of my favorite dishes because it's perfectly healthy.

Haiphong Garlic Pork Chop - Php78.00
This is just like an ordinary pork shop sliced in small pieces in garlic coating. Nothing is really exciting and special about this dish.

Black Mamba and Kiwi Iced Tea - Php60.00 / glass
These are just ordinary iced teas mixed with kiwi or black mamba syrup to add flavor and to make it unique.

Tsim Sha Tsui is better than Dimsum Break and Harbour Dimsum in my opinion. Aside from the location being so neat and clean, the food is better though the price is a bit higher.

  1. cool post Fred.. I will check this place out one of these days.. Coincidentally, Tsim Tsa Tsui is one of the Cities I went to while in Hong Kong, I'm not sure if its was named after it. Without the name, the food reminds me of DimSum. #cravingChinese
