The Bacolod Food hunters were feeling a bit under the weather. The frequent rains had given them a case of the flu.
“I want something nice and warm.. like soup” complained Martin.
One of the Bacolod Food hunters suggested going for some Noodles. We all piled into the car and headed to Terra Dolce where Mongkok Noodle house was located.
Mongkok was packed with diners having their sunday lunch!
Martin was feeling sick so he settled for some Chinese comfort food (a big bowl of Pork Congee) while the others ordered other things for lunch.
The bowl of congee was huge! It was served piping hot which relieved Martin’s stuffy nose and made him feel much better. The others had ordered noodles (Pancit) which came with strips of chinese barbecued pork (Char siu) and generous amount of shrimp and vegetables.
Other more traditional food that we ordered was Mongkok’s Soy Chicken and some beef dimsum.
Mongkok’s prices range from 100-300 pesos (a bit pricy) but you get huge plates and huge portions, perfect for sharing or for family lunches. They also offer merienda dishes (100-150) which are smaller sized versions of their main dishes. Mongkok also has an extensive offering of dimsum. This place is very family friendly with long tables which can seat 10 people at once.
Side note: It took Martin 30 minutes to demolish that bowl of Congee all by himself. That’s how big it was!
