Filipinos love to eat, and we have a particular liking for Chinese food. Finally, an authentic Chinese restaurant opens at the Manila Prince Hotel, the hotel in the heart of Manila. With Ermita being the cultural hub of Metro Manila, this new restaurant gives everyone the chance to savor Chinese cuisine and fusion dishes as a means to explore cultures.
Kicking off with a soft launch on November 19, Dragon Court will begin serving only the finest favorites, with dishes bursting with authentic Chinese flavors that Filipinos crave for. The neighborhood restaurant is accessible not just to hotel guests but to employees working in offices nearby, tourists staying in the area, as well as students and officials in neighboring schools and government offices.
Dragon Court, whose stunning interiors will transport guests to a place akin to a royal court where food is as much enjoyed as it is celebrated, hopes to be the go-to place for festive family gatherings for all occasions, and even be a venue to celebrate life’s milestones from birthdays, debuts, graduations, and many others. The new restaurant is run by Chef Sun Bing, whose culinary expertise had been set the standard for The Manila Hotel’s famous Red Jade restaurant, so people can expect the same quality of food in every dish he serves.
During the soft launch, the restaurant first opened its doors to media guest with a traditional Dragon Dance. Soon, the attendees were given a treat. The meal started off with Two Kinds Dim Sum of Hakaw and Siomai; followed by the Eight Treasure Diced Winter Melon Soup. Soon, more dishes were served to thrill the visitors: Stew Vegetarian Eggplant, Stir-Fried Grouper Filler with Egg White, Cheese Shrimp Ball, and Crispy Fried Chicken-Hong Kong Style.
The feast did not end there, as they also got to sample the Minced Pork in 5 Spice Sauces, and the delectable Wagyu Beef in Honey Pepper Sauce, all topped off with Baked Taro Fried Rice. The meal was capped off with the Baked Mango Tapioca Pudding. The dishes are just some samples from the extensive menu that promises to satisfy any guest of Dragon Court.
Dragon Court is open daily from 11am to 3pm, and 6pm to 10pm. It is located at the ground floor of Manila Prince Hotel at 1000 San Marcelino Street, Ermita, Manila. For inquiries and reservations, call 5328-2222.
