Tasty Taiwanese dishes at FatFook Kitchen, UP Town Center

For a recent holiday get-together with my former office buddies, we settled on FatFook Kitchen at UP Town Center as our meet-up place.

For one thing, UP Town Center is easily accessible to all of us, scattered all over the metro as we are. Despite the Christmas rush, getting there was relatively easy, since most of the traffic are headed towards the opposite direction to the Makati and South areas.

Secondly, we know that we won’t be disappointed in the food. After all, Taiwanese cuisine is so close to what appeals to the Pinoy palate while offering a welcome break to flavors and textures we consider mundane.

The next challenge was ordering food for a group of five that will please everyone’s taste buds or sate their personal cravings. Fortunately, FatFook has a ready solution with its Feast for the Family offer which allows diners to order one appetizer, one noodle or rice dish, one vegetable dish and two main entrees for just Php1,1088.

Given our appetites and this amazingly affordable offer, we ordered two sets of Feast for the Family and indulged ourselves in a variety of Taiwanese dishes which included:

Appetizer.

Hot & Sour Soup for Sharing.
A thick, savory and spicy soup which contains day lily buds, wood ear fungus, bamboo shoots, and tofu, in pork blood broth.

Fried Squid.
Thinly sliced squid rings covered in batter, deep fried for the characteristic crunch and then liberally seasoned with salt and pepper.

Noodles and Rice.

Served in a small pan, the rice is fried with a salty brown sauce and accompanied by bits of green onion and Taiwanese sausage.

Vegetable Dish.

Eggplant with Minced Pork.
Slivers of eggplant stir-fried with minced pork resulting in a flavorful – yet thankfully non-spicy – viand.

String Beans.
A healthy side dish of string beans stir-fried with minced pork to lessen the guilt from eating so much, hehehe!

Main Entrees.

FatFook, UP Town Center
Chicken Chops.
Juicy and tender chicken breasts coated with batter and breading, then deep-fried, seasoned and sliced into -bite-sized strips.

Sweet & Sour Pork.
A dish that has become a mainstay in many Pinoy dining tables, this combines sweet, savory and sour flavors.
FatFook, UP Town Center
Oyster Omelette.
A dish that brings the flavors of the sea from the oysters encased with bits of lettuce in a savory egg wrap, then smothered in a sweet sauce.
FatFook, UP Town Center
Beef Tendon Hotpot.
A sinful dish made with melt-in-your-mouth slices of beef tendon stewed in a thick sauce with chopped chilis for that hint of spice.

Dimsum. Our meal wouldn’t be complete with some tasty potstickers so we ordered some of the frozen dumplings which the restaurant steamed and served to us.

Pork Siomai (Php375 | 15pcs).

Shrimp Hakaw (Php430 | 12pcs).

We also couldn’t pass up the chance to have a taste of FatFook’s signature Taiwanese Sausages, plump and meaty links with a sweet, savory and garlicky flavor. Also, since FatFook does not offer service water, we washed down our meal with soda and TeaCo Black Tea.

Our enjoyable time together over good food was enhanced by the great service of FatFook’s staff.
