Bai Nian Tang Bao 百年龙袍: Sipping the Giant Tang Bao Experience! (Uptown Parade BGC)

I can't recall the last time I went to Uptown Parade BGC.  I was surprised to see it so much livelier with more shops and restaurants.  One of the latest addition is Bai Nian Tang Bao (百年龙袍): The Origin of Xiao Long Bao.

It is a bit low-key here but it actually has branches in Shanghai, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, New York and more.

Given it is an international franchise, prime location and grand ambiance, I was expecting the menu to be pricey...


Special Dimsum
special sticky rice and pork siomai
Special Sticky Rice and Pork Siomai (130 php)
yet it turned out to be affordable.  The Special Sticky Rice and Pork Siomai is priced at 130 php for 4 pieces.  It reminded me of our local Chinese version of Machang except that it is wrapped in a thin and silky smooth dimsum wrapper.  It was good for a try but I still prefer xiao long bao than it.

Tang Bao
scallop and pork xiao long bao
Scallop and Pork Xiao Long Bao (238 php)
The Scallop and Pork Xiao Long Bao is my favorite among their xia long bao because scallops are my favorite seafood. 

golden corn pork xiao long bao
Golden Corn Pork Xiao Long Bao (168 php)
If you're corny, then you can try the Golden Corn Pork Xiao Long Bao.  Just kidding!  =p  I've always loved my mom's corn soup and this reminds me of that so I appreciated it a bit.

special crab roe giant tang bao
Special Crab Roe Giant Tang Bao (258 php)
Of course the most memorable offering is the Special Crab Roe Giant Tang Bao that you get to drink from a paper straw.  Don't you just always wish that there's more soup to your xiao long bao?  Now you can have more!

shanghai style fish fillet
Shanghai Style Fish Fillet (199 php)
If you would ask me what is the best tilapia dish I have ever tried?  I would say it is the
Shanghai Style Fish Fillet.  The addictive crisp and soothing flavor of this dish are what won me ever.  Try it!

Hot Dishes 
Shanghai Special Braised Pork (329 php)
Before, I didn't really enjoy eating fats.  But, because of my officemates and seeing their smiles and enthusiasm over the buttery texture whenever we have fatty dish taught me to add some value to it.  I can imagine my office mates jumping for joy once they try the Shanghai Special Braised Pork.

Noodles Series
Shanghai Scallion Oil Noodles (179 php)
If your looking for a simple yet savory noodle dish for the sauce and not for the topping then the
Shanghai Scallion Oil Noodles.  
three seafood treasure fried noodles
Three Seafood Treasure Fried Noodles (219 php)
If you prefer to munch on delicious seafood toppings, then go for the Three Seafood Treasure Fried Noodles.

beef fried rice
Beef Fried Rice (219 php)
I usually like beef dishes but the Beef Fried Rice failed to appeal to my taste.

special sausage fried rice
Special Sausage Fried Rice (219 php)
Instead me and my companions enjoyed the homey flavors of the Special Sausage Fried Rice.

white fungus
White Fungus (98 php)
Having the White Fungus for dessert is a first time for me.  I liked it especially the dates.  But, it didn't seem to be appealing for others.

iced tea
Iced Tea (55 php)
 For cool refreshment, you can try have some Iced Tea.

Hot Green Tea (One Pot)
May I be a "tita" and recommend having the Hot Green Tea to match their hot dimsums.  I would like to think that the consistency in temperature enhances the flavors better.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
We're so fortunate to have Bai Nian Tang Bao 百年龙袍 in Manila.  Definitely, don't miss out the chance to try their giant tang bao.
