After picking up my mom from The Podium, we headed over to Kapitolyo to have an early dinner. We were all craving for some warm soup since 1.) It was raining outside, and 2.) Both mom and dad were down with the sniffles – So instead of heading over to this spot that serves comfort food, we headed over to this Chinese restaurant called Red Panda.

Interior. The second floor of the resto looked very nice too (albeit slightly cramped), like the interior of someone’s home. Too bad I wasn’t able to take any pictures of it.

Menu: Dimsum, Congee, Noodle soup, Stir-fried noodles, Breakfast, Appetizers, Salads, Soup, Rice, Rice in a bowl, Self-serving platters, Vegetables, Chicken, Pork, Beef, Seafood, Entrée, Pasta, Desserts. Their menu is a combination of Chinese/Taiwanese and European dishes… Which I found slightly odd, TBH.

Red Panda Gokong – Simmered pork pata, organic native chicken and pork tendon in chicken and pork broth. The broth was packed with so much flavor, but the meat had too many bones in it.

Tausi Chicken Feet – Chicken feet marinated in light superior and tausi sauce, before fried and boiled into a golden brown.

Xiao Long Bao – Dumplings stuffed with minced pork served with kikoman sauce and shredded ginger. Always a favorite, no matter which restaurant I get to eat it from.

Cuapao – A traditional Hong Kong steamed white bread into perfection.

Red Panda Fried Rice – Stir-fried Jasmine rice, spring onions, egg, shrimp, asado, and lettuce. Looks really scrumptious, too bad I’m trying to skip rice for one whole month.

Fried Tofu with Garlic and Pepper – Tofu fried and seasoned with garlic and pepper. Slightly crispy on the outside, and mushy on the inside.

Tausi Fish Fillet and Tofu – Steamed fish fillet tofu in tausi sauce. Contrary to the fried tofu, the one that they used here was very soft – And went really well with the salty steamed fish.

Well I have to say that they need to tone down the salt with their tausi fish fillet dish, but other than that, our dining experience here was just fine! It’s just a pity that there weren’t any other customers that came in while we were there (and it was dinner time, too)… I mean, it’s not really the best Chinese restaurant out there, but it’s still very decent.
