Our visit to Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen was an accidental one. We were supposed to eat at another restaurant but two of their branches had special parties and were closed to the public. I didn’t bother going to a 3rd branch as I knew that we weren’t meant to eat at the restaurant. I then noticed Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen across the street. I told my friend let’s try this new restaurant out!
I’m just glad that Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen doesn’t close their doors during afternoons. Most restaurants take a break from 2-6pm. Since we were there for a late lunch, it was a relief that they are open throughout the day.
Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen is a typical Chinese restaurant. I appreciate the music that they were playing that day – Chinese songs (old popular ones!).
There was also the roasting station at one corner of the restaurant. We didn’t order any roasted stuff but we were totally satisfied with our food orders. Everything was so delicious! I shall keep Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen in my mind now if I’m craving for good Chinese food in Greenhills area.
We ordered quite a lot. Sometimes I think that my blogging is influencing me to order quite a lot when I dine at a restaurant. I always have this thought that I should be sharing at least more than 3 dishes or else, it won’t make sense for me to blog about the experience. I must change that habit as I’m trying to lose weight too! 😛
In spite of the many orders, we still finished every single dish. In all honesty, I loved everything (well, except for the drink :P).
- Mint Iced Tea (Php 65)
Eat Well’s Iced tea was made of brewed tea combined with calamansi and mint. I think calamansi overpowered the whole drink itself. I wasn’t able to taste the mint and the natural flavors of the tea were almost not distinguishable.
- Deep-fried Bean Curd in Spicy Salt (Php 155)
The actual dish was exactly the same as it was pictured in the restaurant’s menu. The serving was generous and we were able to enjoy this dish as our appetizer. The vinegar went very well with the bite-sized tofu too!
- Braised Pork with Chinese Sausage and Taro Rice (Php 165)
We tried this out as it looked different from the usual fried rice offerings in a Chinese restaurant. As we tasted the dish, we noticed that it’s actually kiampung! The only difference is that they put taro on top of the rice. The fried rice was put in a dim sum container which really worked! The ingredient that made this fried rice delicious is definitely the chinese sausage. Yummy!
- Fried String Beans with Minced Pork (Php 230)
When I saw fried string beans in Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen’s menu, I knew I had to order it. This has got to be my favorite chinese vegetable dish of all time! I loved the sauce that the chef put into this dish. Not sure what comprised the sauce but it was sweet and I loved it. I noticed I was the one who finished this dish. I can’t stop eating it even though I was already full!
- Steamed Fish Fillet with Minced Bean (Php 305)
Eat Well has a full menu of fish dishes. They have fish in black bean sauce, fish in sweet & sour sauce and some other variants. When I saw that they have steamed fish fillet with minced bean, the decision became easy. Taoso (minced bean) is my ultimate favorite flavoring for fish fillet. When I finally tried out the dish, I was completely satisfied! The fish was meaty and there was enough taoso in every slice. Yay!
- Chilled Almond Jelly with Mango Sago (Php 78)
A different twist to the usual mango sago dessert. What Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen done is they used the almond jelly as a base (ala ‘taho’) and mango sago as the sauce. It was pure genius and the combination worked pretty well! You must try this especially if you love both almond jelly and mango sago.
- Masachi with White Chocolate (Php 108)
Another twist to the normal chinese dessert is this Masachi with White chocolate. It’s like a union between Western and Asian cuisine. Oh how I love that with every bite, the white chocolate just flows out. It tasted so delicious and I couldn’t think of any restaurant that serves the same kind of dessert. It was truly one of a kind. Super duper appetizing! A must order!
I felt it must be destiny that we weren’t able to eat at the restaurant that we were supposed to eat at. Eat Well! Delicious Kitchen is a great foodie discovery! I’ll surely be back soon! 🙂
