We would always pass by Lugang Cafe in Greenhills and every time there is always a line going inside. It made me curious as to why a lot of people want to go there. 2 Days ago i finally got a taste of Lugang.
We went to the Mall of Asia Branch of Lugang. When we entered, a Receptionist asked us how many we where, we said 3. Instead of bringing us to our table, a co worker of the girl talked to her and we were stalled until she finished talking with her co worker! And she did not even apologize.
When we got to our table, we were given the Red Menu and the Blue one (for drinks and desserts). We ordered the following: Steamed Angled Loofah with Shrimp/Xiao Long Bao (In the Menu it says it is a Taiwan Regional Specialty), Stir Fried String Beans with Pork, Three Cup Chicken (a Regional Specialty and the House Special), Golden Fried Rice with Minced Pork and for Dessert the Bellagio Freeze.
The Xiao Long Bao was very good, the soup inside was perfect (The first time and the last time i got to taste Xiao Long Bao was in Shanghai and i already forgot how it tasted so hard to compare). The Stir Fried String Beans with minced pork was overcooked, the String Beans were kinda dry already. And the Pork was kinda burnt. The Three Cup chicken was just delicious, it had so much flavor and it was chopped into small pieces so it was easy to eat. The Fried Rice was okay too, not oily ilke other Fried Rice served. The Bellagio Freeze which is more or less like Ice Kachang was not that impressive. I still prefer Ice Kachang anyway.
There are still so many Food Items in their Menu that I need to go back to Lugang. What I like most about the Food is that it is not Heavy and Oily like other Chinese Restaurants. It is light and partner it off with Tea and you will get to eat a Lot.
