BDW and I have our favorite haunts in the Metro. These are places that we go to because we know the food will always be good and that our wallets won’t be damaged much. In these haunts, we order the same food and we do not stray. It only means one thing —we’ve found comfort food. And to this list we add Su Zhou Dimsum.
BDW and I find comfort in their:
Sour and Spicy Soup (Php 130) -The soup is filled to the brim with mushrooms, tofu, strips of ham, shredded pork and I believe chestnuts. The broth is really heavy and is definitely spicy (I would always get the sniffles after that). An order is good for three to four persons or two hungry people.
Fried Breaded Pork Strips (Php 230)- Two big slices of deep fried pork covered in perfect golden brown crumbs. This is served with a sweet and sour dipping sauce.Pork strip + dip = CRRRUUNCH.
Su Zhou Fried Rice (Php 130) – Fluffy, tasty, yellow and golden. It has shrimp and mixed vegetables as any self-respecting fried rice dish would have. You need to eat the Fried Breaded Pork Strips with this rice. The hubby and I were trying to recreate Din Tai Fung’s pork chop rice and although this isn’t close this combination is goooood.
And last but definitely not the least:
XIAO LONG BAO!!!! (4 pcs Php 100) I’ve sang the praises of Crystal Jade’s but Su Zhou’s is a great alternative. The wanton skin is just the right thickness to hold the steaming hot soup within. A bite guarantees a spurt of the soupy goodness (definitely not a meal to order on a first date or is it? hmmm). The condiments add just the right contrast. We could eat this everyday and never get sick of it.
We ordered a meal that’s good for four people so we brown bagged the leftovers…and ate them all again the next day.
Su Zhou so good!! Have a yummy weekend folks!
