One of our favourite gourmet dinners last year was a ten-course Chinese lauriat at the Crystal Dragon restaurant of the Crown Hotel of the City of Dreams in Manila. The Chinese dishes the chefs of Crystal Dragon prepared were excellent and the company was just wonderful.
FINE DINING CHINESE FOOD IN MANILA
In Manila late last year, living a #Travelife, we gathered some friends for a celebratory dinner at the Crystal Dragon restaurant of the Crown Hotel in Manila. This excellent Chinese restaurant is the sister establishment of the Michelin-starred Crystal Dragon restaurant at the City of Dreams in Macau, where I also had one of my most memorable Chinese dinners.
MICHELIN-STARRED CHINESE FOOD
I like the Crystal Dragon restaurant in Manila because it serves delicious and beautifully plated Chinese food. This is certainly Chinese fine dining at its best, with elegant platters and tableware that every guest I bring to this restaurant always wants to take home.
The restaurant itself is lovely, too. It’s quiet and ever so tastefully decorated so it’s really the perfect venue for a very nice dinner or a celebration.
That night, I requested the chefs of the Crystal Dragon restaurant to create a special menu. I did not bother to order the menu because I already knew I would be in very good hands. All I asked was that my favourite Peking duck be included.
Just my luck. Chef Tiger from Beijing happened to be at Crystal Dragon that weekend of my dinner, so an authentic expert Beijing chef personally roasted and served the Peking duck that night.
We had a ten-course Chinese banquet accompanied by magnums of fine wines, and every single course served was tasty and arranged so beautifully for my guests. As a result, we all enjoyed a most delicious evening at Crystal Jade in Crown Hotel Manila, living a #Travelife.
