In this day and age, observance of frugality and prudence is absolutely important or at least for our family. Stretching our domestic budget has always been an effort between my wife and I; we cut on other expenses but we don’t compromise food. We always prioritize Gabby’s fortified powdered milk, his chocolate drink, multivitamins, sometimes his favorite cereals too. We don’t dine out as frequent as before and if we do, we choose affordable and family-friendly food places. We always try to seek value-for-money.
There were 2 new things we experienced last Sunday. First was attending mass at 6 in the evening; we always hear mid-morning masses except last week. Both Tina and I had to do household chores in the morning and stuffs she had to finish for work, so we opted to skip our routine and decided to go to Christ the King Church in E. Rodriguez Avenue, Quezon City at dusk. Then after the Mass, it was also our first time to eat at KING BEE Chinese Food.
We’ve been seeing its newly opened branch right across that church for some time now but haven’t tried it until last Sunday. I’ve already heard raves about King Bee from my dad who already tried their Antipolo Branch with my aunts and uncles early this year. Tina and I thought it was like another Chinese fast food but we only knew that it is not when we’re already inside ordering our dinner.
When the waiter handed us the menu, we found out that prices are within reached; and because entrees come in sizes- S, M, & L, it’s even more reasonable than other long-established Chinese restaurants that we frequent. Plus it’s nice that they still offer Opening Promo of 20% off on all of their dimsums at 8 in the evening. We came almost an hour before 8 but the staff told us that we can already avail of the discount.
Look at how we maximized our PhP 547 (net, inclusive of tax) with dimsums, seafood fried noodle dish and a glass of sago and black gulaman.
In a glimpse : DIMSUMS that we savored
In toto :
SEA KING ROLL…
I’m lost for words to express how delightful this dimsum is!
HAKAO…it’s a must whenever we dine Chinese!
Gabby liked the shrimp dumpling or hakao. He just loved forking those plump and juicy shrimps! Delicious! Certainly, a personal favorite!
The buns are the softest! Its filling has unique taste compared to usual Asado siopao. Yummy!
What’s dimsum and dumplings without chili + soy + calamansi ?
Usual Chinese resto freebie : house tea…aids in digestion, of course and saves you on ordering beverages
SEASONAL SEAFOOD FRIED NOODLES…
We only had the small order (you can opt for medium or large) but surprisingly came with generous ingredients!
mix it up, and voila!
Gabby enjoyed a glass of SAGO & BLACK GULAMAN…
Can you blame me if I fell in love and will forever love these killer smiles? Love ko ‘to :
Thank you Lord for all the blessings–big and small!
Tina and I agreed that King Bee Chinese Food is authentic in taste; affordable in price; quick and polite in service with casual ambiance. It’s like eating in Manila Chinatown without the hassles of traffic! We’ll definitely try their other dishes on our future visits.
