Dining At Chowking In TrinoMa Mall, Philippines

by - Sunday, September 13, 2009

The first two things I imagine whenever I think of Chowking are Halo-halo and Congee. I have been craving for a bowl of Halo-halo and a bowl of hot Congree for two years and when I've finally gotten the chance to spend my vacation in the Philippines, the first thing my boyfriend and I have tried to look for is a Chowking place.

The first three days of our stay were spent going through every boutique and department stores of the SM North EDSA and SM Mall of Asia. I wanted to have my Chowking favorites even on the first day however, Chowking places had been overflowing with people all the time. Not wanting to squeeze inside too much populated Chowking restaurants, I decided to wait until the day we found one where we could at least breathe in and move a bit. During the fourth day, we decided to check again some boutiques we missed at the SM North EDSA and ended up spending the day at the TrinoMa Mall instead. You can read the full story here.

To make a long story short, between 2 and 3 in the afternoon we noticed a not so busy Chowking inside the TrinoMa Mall. Excited, we went inside at once, placed our orders and patiently waited for our food to be served. The waiting wasn't that much which was perfect for someone craving for Halo-halo and Congee like me! On the other hand, my boyfriend ordered dumplings, chicken noodles, siopao asado and a large glass of pineapple juice which he found fulfulling.

The entire meal didn't cost us that much which truly surprised us. Oh my... the lady who took our orders mispelled my name big time! Mary Anne was changed to Marry Ann in an instant. Well who cares, right? I got what I wanted anyway! No big deal!
I am again missing Chowking! rindu
