#FoodPH - A Culinary Journey Through Chinese Cuisine at Manila Prince Hotel's Dragon Court Restaurant

Chinese cuisine is a symphony of flavors, a harmony of ingredients, and a testament to the country's rich culinary history. Let's embark on a gastronomic journey through some of the most popular Chinese dishes:

**Pork and Shrimp Siomai**

A staple in dim sum, Pork and Shrimp Siomai is a delightful blend of ground pork, whole shrimp, and seasonings wrapped in a thin, delicate dumpling wrapper. The succulent pork and the sweet, tender shrimp create a savory symphony that dances on your palate. Each bite is a burst of umami goodness, making it a favorite among food lovers.

**Vegetable Spring Roll**

Crispy on the outside, soft and flavorful on the inside, Vegetable Spring Rolls are a treat to the senses. The crunch of the golden-brown wrapper gives way to a medley of fresh, vibrant vegetables. The subtle sweetness of carrots, the earthy notes of mushrooms, and the slight bitterness of cabbage come together to create a balanced, satisfying taste.

**Shrimp Hakaw**

Shrimp Hakaw, or Har Gow, is a dim sum classic. Encased in a translucent, slightly chewy wrapper, the shrimp filling is the star of the show. The shrimp are plump and juicy, with a natural sweetness that shines through. It's a simple dish, but one that showcases the freshness and quality of the ingredients.

**Xiao Long Bao**

Xiao Long Bao, or soup dumplings, are a marvel of Chinese cuisine. The thin, pleated wrapper encloses a rich, flavorful broth and a tender filling of pork. The explosion of hot soup and the savory pork filling when you take a bite is a unique and unforgettable experience.

**Steamed Chicken Feet**

Steamed Chicken Feet, also known as Phoenix Talons, is a dish for the adventurous. The chicken feet are marinated in a sauce of black bean, soy, and oyster sauces, then steamed until tender. The result is a gelatinous texture and a deep, savory flavor that's surprisingly addictive.

**Steamed Custard Bun**

To end on a sweet note, the Steamed Custard Bun is a must-try. The fluffy, soft bun reveals a creamy, sweet custard filling. The custard, made from milk, sugar, and eggs, has a smooth texture and a rich, eggy flavor that's the perfect conclusion to a Chinese meal.

Century Egg with Ginger Sauce

Prince Hot and Sour Soup

During our visit, we tried Prince Hot and Sour Soup which was perfect since it's raining outside. It has a perfect blend of spiciness and sourness in a light tomato based soup. You may also enjoy the classic Yang Chow Fried Rice, Salted Fish Fried Rice and Birthday Noodles.
