Let me start this post by saying that Fungs Noodle House is one of my favorite chinese restaurants in the city. But because it’s a bit hidden, I believe it did not get the much attention that it deserves. I’ve already eaten here twice and its still the same delightful experience so I wanna share with you in this post what took place during my last visit.
Fungs Noodle House is located at SSY Business Center across JY Square Lahug. It’s very accessible but maybe because you can’t see it immediately does not make it a popular go to place. Don’t be surprised when you come in cause you’ll immediately see the kitchen at the ground floor. Their dining area is actually located at the second floor. The area can sit around 30-40 people. From what I noticed from my two visits, pure chinese locals (or maybe tourists) come and dine here. That must tell you something, right?
Their menu consists of different kinds of chinese dishes. They offer soup, noodles, congee, rice meals, stir fry dishes, and my ever favorite dimsum. Price ranges from Php80 – 300.
For my second visit, I got to try again their Siomai. We also ordered Xiao Long Pao, Minced Chicken and Corn Soup, Salt and Pepper spare ribs, Fungs Special Pata Tim, Fried Chicken Hong Kong Style and Special Seafood Pancit Canton.
The soup came in first and to our surprise, the serving was huge. It can probably serve up to ten people. We started filling up our hungry selves with a bowl and the first words that came out from my colleagues was “Lami” (Its delicious!). It got me more excited to try out the other food we ordered.
When it comes to dimsum, I’d like to share that Fung’s Siomai is my favorite. You don’t need sauce or chili to enjoy it. It can stand on its own. That’s how delicious it is. I know that it’s a bit pricey at Php100 for 4pcs compared to other popular dimsum places, but it’s definitely worth it.
The frieds were delightful as well. Their chicken was so good that my colleague just can’t get enough of it. Seeing this picture makes me want to go back for that chicken. It was flavorful from the skin to the insides.
But of course, the Pancit Canton and Pata Tim will not lose the taste test. Both were equally good. I even love how the Pancit canton had such generous serving of seafood. And look at the size of that Pata Tim. We weren’t able to finish it cause we were already full so we had it packed for take out.
Overall, the experience was awesome. Food was great from taste to serving size. The ambiance and service was good. Though I think there should always be a standby server looking out for the customers. I think they only had one server at that time. It was a good thing the place was not cramped.
So if ever you’re craving for chinese food, why not choose to try a new place? Who knows that you can actually discover something good? Cause by this second visit, I’m glad that my colleagues were able to try something new. It was definitely worth the time and experience.
