xiao long bao
Xiao Long Bao (6 pcs.) (158 php)
Xiao Long Bao is best eaten hot so we consumed it immediately.  As soon as I nibbled on the side of its soft shell, meaty, juicy flavorful soup burst into my mouth.  It was delicious!  
hot and sour soup
Hot and Sour Soup (180 php)
Lugang Cafe's Hot and Sour Soup is rich in black vinegar making the soup sour and lacking the hot taste.  Seeing that it is rich in ingredients, it was okay.
shitake mushroom chicken broth
Shitake Mushroom Chicken Broth (160 php)
The Shitake Mushroom Chicken Broth soup had dried shitake mushroom and chicken chunks.  There was also a noticeable taste of Chinese herbs.  This soup is soothing to drink.

golden fried rice shredded pork
Golden Fried Rice with Shredded Pork (220 php)
The Golden Fried Rice with Shredded Pork tasted like any ordinary Chinese fried rice.  Although there was shredded pork, it hardly made any difference in the dish.  

roasted duck

Roasted Duck (1/2) (800 php)
The Roasted Duck (1/2) had crispy and taste duck skin.  The meat was soft and succulent.  Although, the dish is naturally oily, the suace was perfect to bring balance.

hainanese chicken
Hainanese Bonesless Chicken (450 php)
The Hainanese Bonesless Chicken is served beautifully with its shiny jelly-like finishing.  It was as delicious as it looked with its tender and flavorful meat.  

House Special
three cup chicken
Three-Cup Chicken (290 php)
The Three-Cup Chicken was offered as one of their house specialty dishes.  Their version of Three-Cup Chicken was very fragrant as slices of ginger and some basil leaves were added.  It was good but its not the best.

shrimp stuffed crullers
Pineapple with Shrimp Stuffed Crullers (280 php)
As another house specialty, I had high expectations for this dish.  However, it was just similar to a Chinese Shrimp or Prawn salad but this had a weird taste too it.  I didn't enjoy this dish.

milk tea coffee jelly
Iced Milk Tea with Coffee Jelly (150 php)
The Iced Milk Tea with Coffee Jelly was a perfect balance of my two favorite drinks: coffee and tea.  Their milk tea was delicious because it was fragrant.  


mango coconut shaved ice
Mango Coconut Shaved Ice (190 php)
The Mango Coconut Shaved Ice comes in big serving so it is suited for shaving.  This dessert is delicious!  The  cool, refreshing and neutral taste of coconut combined with the sweet and tangy taste of mango is perfect.
