Xin Tian Di: Satisfactory Chinese Dining (Crowne Plaza Hotel Ortigas)

Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines

Perhaps, it's because we're from Manila so we've never heard of Xin Tian Di until they had a discount for BDO card holders (Thanks Achi Rowena of Animetric.Net for the tip!)

One random weekend, we reserved a table just to try it out.

It is a bit more modern the traditional Chinese restaurant.  It has tea displays.

And, there's a cold cut station and a chiller of fruits.

I initially thought that the dining area was small...

that was before we were ushered to the function room which I'm guessing is allocated for those who will avail of the discount.

Being in the function room made it difficult to call the attention of the staffs.  Good thing Kate was kind enough to be attentive to us.  We are almost invisible to the other servers.

Steamed Cod with Wild Mushrooms

The Steamed Cod with Wild Mushrooms is not on the menu.  It was suggested by Kate which we approved.  Indeed, it is a must try!  It's the highlight of our meal.

Beancurd and Scallop in Celery Sauce

The Beancurd and Scallop in Celery Sauce is also not on the menu but suggested.  This is the first time I've encountered such a dish and we loved it!

Fried Rice with Fresh and Dried Scallops Small (480 php)
ampalaya buchi
Ampalaya Buchi (100 php)
Don't let the appearance of the Ampalaya Buchi fool you.  It actually contained melted dark chocolate inside.  We enjoyed it so much we ordered one for each!

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Xin Tian Di just needs to work on their marketing because the food here is really good.  The pricing is also reasonable yet I hardly encounter any Chinese occasion being celebrated here.
