What we ate:
Suahe, Yang Chow Fried Rice, Chicken Siopao and Chicken Feet
Taste = 5/5
– I haven’t eaten on all of the Chinese restaurants along Banawe but so far, Lam Tin has the best-tasting food in that street considering the prices. They also have the best Chicken Siopao, a chicken ball with a distinct taste wrapped inside very soft sweet bread then steamed to perfection. I loved the taste of the shrimp head sauce on the Suahe because they were very fresh. The shrimp meat was very soft and was almost like jelly. The dipping sauce, a mixture of soy sauce, vinegar, green onion and chillies with some sugar, was superb. Their Yang Chow tasted like what great fried rice should taste. It was not oily at all, had a generous amount of shrimps and was seasoned very well. Their Chicken Feet here are Lyn’s favourite and she said they were very tender and was coated with a very tasty sauce.
Service = 5/5
– The restaurant probably represents an old-school Chinese restaurant with even the owners and his children serving the customers. Even though I got sprayed on by saliva while talking to the server, we got fast service.
Ambience = 3.5/5
– The place had basic furniture, basic comfort rooms and basic utensils. We felt that people were there for one purpose – to eat and then go home. That wasn’t really a problem since they serve great Chinese food.
Value for money = 5/5
– Don’t let the picture fool you. The smallest Yang Chow rice serving could feed 3 people (5 females or 2 males) and their siopao comes in twos. Their food items are really priced properly.
