Chinese food is very abundant in all parts of Binondo. You can see them in all sizes, but with all these, one stood out successfully in the Lucky Chinatown Mall - the King Chef Seafood Restaurant. Unveiled June 2012, the restaurant is now celebrating its first year milestone with great food, ambiance and value for your money. And I am just so lucky to be part of this memorable celebration.

King Chef Seafood Restaurant in Lucky Chinatown Mall is the second branch of the famous restaurant. I remember going to its Banawe Branch and it is just a huge hit within the area. And I am not exaggerating when I say that my boyfriend used to go there at 10PM and yet the place is still packed with customers. Rewind to 2012, I am just delighted that their Lucky Chinatown Mall branch is conveniently located in Manila, where I reside. Now, its so easy for me to have a magnificent dining experience everyday. 

King Chef Seafood Restaurant began when Marites Apiado-Ang and her husband, Michael Chan-Ang decided to put up Cantonese Soup Kitchen. When he was suffering from an illness where he cannot enjoy food that he likes, Maritess would experiment different kinds of soup for him to enjoy. And since they have the fondness for soup, they opened their first store - the Cantonese Soup Kitchen in Banawe Street, Quezon City. After quite some time, the couple decided to expand and have a dimsum kitchen, and the King Chef Dimsum Kitchen was born.

With their sumptuous food and loyal customers in tow, they decided to transfer to a bigger location and put up King Chef Fine Dining Restaurant. With their excellent and healthy dishes, it's actually no wonder that the restaurant would flourish and branch out to Lucky Chinatown Mall in 2012. King Chef Seafood restaurant also boasts of the freshest ingredients, the finest herbs and spices imported straight from China.

Owner Maritess Ang invited the guests to a feast that's fit for a king. And basing on what they have prepared for us that day, I have to say that I broke my weekend diet rule. I simply can't resist a great Chinese cuisine, let alone a full menu. So here are the dishes that we enjoyed for lunch. And believe me when I say that it is one lunch I will never ever forget:

Assorted Cold Cuts Combination
Dumplings in Seafood Spinach Soup
Deep Fried Suahe with Salted Egg
Stir-fried Kung Pao Chicken
Fried Spareribs with Eight Spices
Stuffed eggplant in Japanese Sauce
Fried King Fish in Mango Sauce
Typhoon Shelter Crabs
Birthday Noodles
Almond Fish Gelatin
Mango Balls
I enjoyed the Stir-fried Kung Pao Chicken and the Typhoon Shelter Crabs. And that statement is coming from a non-believer of spicy food. Oh and let me tell you one thing, I don't eat eggplant, but their Stuffed Eggplant in Japanese Sauce was superb, that I didn't even recognized the hint of the vegetable. The spareribs will surely be enjoyed by your Dad or boyfriend. 

Their Almond Fish Gelatin was featured during the Gourmet Masterpieces event last month. I saw this again and they are as yummy as they look. Also, kudos to the Mango Balls, where I am all praises of. 

What I also noticed is how their staff is so professional and passionate, even.  They also have the moves that you shouldn't miss. And yes, they can perform on special occasions and parties. See them groove here:

Congratulations, King Chef Seafood Restaurant and may you bring us more magical moments with your delicious menu and service that is truly fit for a king! (And maybe queens too? :))
