Take this recent visit for example, this is finally the only trip where we got to spend a lot of time with both families. Spending lunches with my in laws and dinners with my side, we took a break from our crazy back-to-back schedule to have quiet meals at home, long hours catching up or dining at our favorite places.
So, for our first dinner in Manila, Mommy suggested that we go to Lugang Cafe. This has been one of my family's favorite restaurants as we are all fans of xiao long bao (steamed soupy dumplings) and Lugang Cafe makes one of the best in town. I'm so happy that we were complete! Even my sister's fiance, E, was able to join us for dinner that evening. Yay!
We also had the Stir-Fried Ee-Fu Noodles with Mushroom which was really yummy! Aside from this, I also recommend the Stir-Fried Beef with Chinese Crullers. The crunchy crullers give an interesting angle to this traditional stir-fried dish.
It was so nice to re-visit an old favorite and I'm really happy to see that they have maintained the same delicious flavor and the good service even after all these years.
Lugang Cafe is located at 115 Connecticut Street, North East Greenhills, San Juan City. They also have branches in SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM Aura Premier, Glorietta 2 and SM North EDSA (The Block). The restaurant easily gets filled up so I highly recommend that you call first to make a reservation.
