It’s back! Mushu – one of Bacolod’s famous restaurants has reopened at its old location on Lacson street. They’ve kept the old favourite dishes that you love and at the same time they plan on introducing more awesome stuff!
Mushu’s main dining room is very relaxing! The room has a nice garden ambiance because of four panels of artificial plants hanging from a wall. The dining area is also well lit, the chairs are padded and comfortable.
Mushu was packed with people but fortunately the excellent staff helped us find a table and took our orders.
For appetizers we had Mushu’s Salt and Pepper tofu. This dish consists of deep fried chunks of Tofu with a soy dipping sauce.
The salt and pepper squid was equally delicious. Slices of squid are battered then deep fried. This was served with a mayonnaise-based dip.
Mushu’s Pritchon is lechon and vegetables wrapped in a soft pita bread and served with hoisin sauce on the side. The lechon and veggies are crunchy while the pita is pillowy soft.
One of the most popular dishes at Mushu is the sizzling Cansi. It’s a dish reminiscent of the philippine Cansi soup but instead of being served on a bowl the meat and bones are served on a sizzling plate and drizzled with a sourish batuan sauce.
The highlight of the dish is a perfectly cut piece of bone which houses a portion of creamy, rich marrow. The marrow melts in your mouth. You can scoop it out and mix it with the rest of the dish or mix it with rice. Either way, you’re in for a treat.
Try Mushu’s Chicken inasal sisig. It’s a pleasant and interesting change from the regular chicken on a stick that Bacolod is known for.
The chicken inasal is chopped up and mixed with the typical sisig ingredients. The chicken becomes crispy after sitting for a while on the hot plate. It’s a pleasant take on a traditional Bacolod dish.
