Lucky Star 88 Seafood Restaurant: Authentic Mainland Chinese Cuisine (Pasay)

It was a rainy night but it still didn't stop the family from celebration my uncle's birthday.  We were invited to celebrate it at Lucky Star 88 Seafood Restaurant in Aseana China Town.

Aseana China Town is a new compound in the South with establishments that are grand and pricey! Aside from Lucky Star 88, there's Bonrich Dimsum Tea House, Tycoon KTV Deluxe Club, Nak Won Korean Restaurant and Goldenage Health Spa.

Lucky Star 88 is huge but it was barely occupied when we dined.  That didn't discourage us.  Besides, I really like the name.  It reminded me of my favorite Taiwan Drama "My Lucky Star" and also favorite comedy Anime" Lucky Star".

assorted combination cold cuts
Assorted Combination Cold Cuts (900 php)
I must have had cold cuts more than a thousand times.  But, this Assorted Combination Cold Cuts stood out because it had crispy wanton and a salad to go with it.  The cold cuts were also delicious.

fried noodles with assorted meat
Fried Noodles with Assorted Meat (480 php)
Poor Fried Noodles with Assorted Meat, it seems in every lauriat dinner it is always the least favourite.

It is the first time we had Braised Lamb in Hot Pot.  It was spicy and soft so I enjoyed it.  I liked
that it also had tofu skin which is my favorite but rarely get to eat.

Since we were little, we always look forward to having the Fried Pigeon.  I recall those days we even love eating the brains in its.  As we grew up, we realized it had too much cholesterol so we don't have them as much.

This vegetable, I don't know the name in English.  I only know the Chinese name.  My mom always seems to be very happy whenever she buys this from the market saying its a special day so I guess I grew to love it.

The fresh seafood here is expensive.  But to be fair, the Live Shrimp  is really good.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Our elders doesn't seem to feel that our bill at Lucky Star 88 was justified.  But, I enjoyed the new dishes but they are not as enthusiastic.  Having an interest in psychology, I do acknowledge that it is scientifically proved that people prefer familiarity in everything though and food is no exception.
