Food Review : Luk Yuen, Cash & Carry Makati
My sister-in-law who's working overseas came home a couple of weeks ago and we ate at Luk Yuen. I remember my husband and I with my mother-in-law already ate here years ago but I wasn't able to record it as I didn't know much about food reviews back then. Haha! Anyway, now let me share with you my thoughts about this restaurant.
It looked more pleasant now than it did before, honestly. It looks more clean and easy to the eyes. I remember it has a bit darker interiors back then. Not that dark though, but today's interiors of this restaurant is way better than before. I guess that is why a lot of people are dining here already.
The place looked crowded (it was really crowded though), but now that it has light-colored interiors, plus the glass walls, you wouldn't notice there were no enough space in between the chair from the other chair behind you. Lol! But seriously, it surprisingly looks spacious! BTW, a woman actually bumped my little one when she was getting up from her chair, and my little girl was just right beside me. It was that crowded.
Now, let's go to the food!
They served us tea first. Well, actually we asked for it! Haha!
|Cute little tea cups and the water glass as well! Lol! |
The water glass was too small we had to call the waiter almost all the time to refill our glasses! Lol
We ordered this Chicken and Corn Soup for Macoki. It was fine. Just plain chicken and corn soup.
|Chicken and Corn Soup | P105|
Here she is waiting not-so-patiently for the food! Maco trying to keep calm. Hahaha! FYI, it only lasted right after I took this photo! Hahaha! The service was not that fast, but I can totally understand since there were a lot of people that time.
|"So Ma, when's the food arriving?"|
This order of Yang Chow Fried Rice gave the 4 of us 1 serving each. So we ordered a plain rice right after we finished this one. Hehe!
|Yang Chow Fried Rice | P225|
The Yang Chow Fried Rice was kind of dry and a little bland for me. But I love that it has those big shrimps in there! But again, I'm quite disappointed that it was not even enough for the 4 of us, because usually an order of Yang Chow Fried Rice from the other restaurants we dined in would even serve the 2 of us an extra serving.
|Boneless Chicken in Lemon Sauce | P295|
I ordered this one and I didn't really like it as much. I was sad. It has too much flour! And it was honestly not the lemon chicken I was expecting. Huhuhu!
|Beef with Ampalaya in Taosi Sauce | P300|
|Peppercorn Spareribs | P340|
All in all, I like that they revamped the place. And I also like their staff, they're quite accommodating. With their food, their food was okay for me, I think we just ordered some that are just so-so, because their Peppercorn Spareribs was delish! I was just too disappointed with their Chicken in Lemon Sauce though, I can't get over it. Huhu
There's something I hated the most with this restaurant though - it's their water glass! It was freakin too small! It was just a bit higher than their tea cups! And because the place was crowded, we had to wait for one of their staff to not be too busy to pour in on our glasses. And I don't get why don't they just put the pitcher on our table. Haha! I guess, it would be fine though, we just didn't ask. Hehehe!
