When it comes to eating out, we almost always veer away from the “they say it’s good” type of restaurants because most of the time, it’s really just hype.

We stick to our usual haunts such as Luk Foo.

Luk Foo’s interiors is reminiscent of Chinese restaurants I grew up with in Mindanao meaning it’s kinda dated.

But what they lack in ambiance they make up for the excellent Cantonese dishes that come out of their kitchen.  For example

image
Fish Lips Soup . A good way to warm up the tummy. It has a generous amount of fish lips
image
Diced chicken and salted fish fried rice
image
Boiled Suahe. Our little boy’s favorite. He was able to eat this by himself and was mighty proud of himself.
image
Luk Foo Fried Chicken. Eat as soon as served.
image
Steamed Pompano in Taoso sauce. So fresh, so good.

Eating in Luk Foo is one of those rare times when I truly wish I had a bigger tummy to accommodate all those Cantonese goodness.

We get to visit Luk Foo only after our children’s time with their pedia as there are no Luk Foo branches near our place. This E. Rod branch as most other Luk Foo branches is at a Puregold outlet. This one is Puregold Qi Central.

After lunch, we decided to explore this Puregold branch. At first I thought this was just the usual smallish branch but when we stopped in, we were very surprised. This place is massive! There are aisles as far as the eyes can see 🙂

We had a leisurely walk at each aisle and spotted some interesting finds. Sharing some below:
