Taiwan, just like many Asian countries, has an incredible food culture, and there seems to be a never-ending supply of delicious and interesting foods to try. But you don’t need to be in Taiwan in order to devour its authentic dishes because Fat Fook Taiwanese Kitchen in SM North EDSA has it. It is an original Taiwanese Cuisine brought by the owners of the Ramen Nagi, a popular ramen chain. This serving restaurant in the metro will absolutely satisfy your Taiwanese food cravings.
Restaurant interior design is a major factor that influences customers while eating out. And Fat Fook did provide not only superb food and service but also a special dining environment for customer satisfaction.The interior of the place is intricately designed with turquoise and coral accent and with artificial warm lighting. It could accommodate plenty of customers and its furniture is made from wood, giving an Asian ambiance to the diners.
Yay! I won’t keep you waiting to get familiar with their delectable food choices. For their starters, I like the Steamed Pork Xiao Long Bao (P 138-5 pcs/P 198-8 pcs) or also known as soup dumplings.The succulent thin skinned dumplings with rich pork mixture just melt in your mouth. Once you bite the chewy and soft dough filled with tasty pork broth, it produces a juicy morsel. It is served with a black vinegar dip mixed with fresh ginger slices, which adds a novel medley of flavors and textures. The aroma that wafts out as you pierce the skin to release the savory liquid is undeniable proof that traditional Asian cuisine is worthy to be appreciated.
One of the scrumptious main course dishes not to miss is the signature Fat Fook Chicken Chop (P 238). It’s a boneless chicken fillet breaded and deep-fried, sliced into bite-sized strips.As soon as I tasted it, my taste buds just screamed with delight.Each chew of the crispy-crunchy chicken chop released wave upon wave of unctuous chicken flavors in my mouth The chicken is ultra tender and cooked to a soft perfection. It was seasoned with spices that add heavenly flavor to the chicken meat, no need for dipping sauce. I can say that chicken chop is a comfort food perfected.
Just like how other Asians can’t live without rice during meals, the Taiwan Styled Fried Rice (P 258) would be a perfect complement to your mains. The soft and fluffy rice are cooked with aromatic soy sauce and topped with meat and vegetables.
If you have a sweet tooth like me, you need to try Fat Fook Taiwanese Kitchen’s Masachi (P 128), soft glutinous rice balls with sweet filling that offers a bit of everything in every bite. Masachi is as soft as marshmallows and filled with sweet or salty ingredients. The most traditional masachi is filled with red bean paste and rolled in peanut powder but strawberry jam, sesame paste, green tea jam and peanut paste have become popular fillings.
Also, don’t forget the refreshingly chilled Taho (P 58 Solo/P 298 Group) that consists of smooth silken tofu with light sweet syrup and tapioca pearls. Once I tasted it, the sweetness was very pronounced. This is perfect to combat the hot and humid day.
For food enthusiasts with unique food tastes and for people who just love to fill their stomachs, Fat Fook Taiwanese Kitchen is definitely a place to visit. From its excellent service to its wide variety of luscious dishes for a reasonable price, you have nothing to worry about.
