Coral Garden: Chinese Fusion for the Family

By Ethel Merioles @kaxmerio

Coral Garden Storefront

A quick bite for dinner last night turned into an hour long feast, with the wait time just as long as the actual eating time. The Coral Garden is a Chinese-Filipino fusion restaurant that initially made its mark in Banawe. Due to the restaurant's popularity (and proximity to where I stay on weekdays), I became very interested to try some of their dishes. Coral Garden Storefront Coral Garden Interior

Something fancy: Coral Bihon

Coral Bihon (Php 265) Surprisingly an order is only good for up to two people. The noodles were flavorful, there was an ample amount of meat and veggies hidden inside the toasted, matted net of noodles.

Coral Garden Coral Fried Rice Medium
Coral Fried Rice (Php 230) A medium sized bowl is filled with a mixture of long grain rice, chorizo, egg and green onions. This is a very delicious dish, although medium isn't enough to fill two tummies.  
Coral Garden Coral Chicken
Coral Chicken (Php 295) Half a marinated chicken is served in a delicious bowl of flavors. The tender chicken meat goes very well with the tender yet flavorful chicken skin and vegetable bits. Like all Chinese restaurants, Coral Garden has house tea available to guests. It would be smart of you to ask for some, since the tea warms the body pretty well. The menu prices remind me a lot of the ones from Cafe Juanita, though, so I'm not sure if the place should be highly recommended. But then again, I may just be highly biased. What do you guys think of Coral Garden? Maybe there are good items on the menu people should splurge on.   Rating: Three out of five stars Price: About Php 250 per person Location: 184-B E.
