This is how we (my friends, particularly Apple, Abs and Zano, and I) always end up eating at Mongkok:

F1: Saan niyo gusto kumain? (Where do you want to eat?)
F2: Kahit saan, hindi pa nama ako masyadong gutom. (Anywhere, I'm not that hungry anyway.)
F3: Ako din, gusto ko light lang tsaka pwede sa mura lang? (Me too, I just want something light to eat and can we eat at a less-expensive place?)
F1: So, saan yung mura, hindi masyadong mabigat at masarap? (So, where can we eat a "light", less expensive and delicious meal?"

*long pause*

F1, F2, F3: MONGKOK?!

Salt and Pepper Squid, Sweet and Sour Fish and Yang Chow Rice

I guess, based on how we always think of Mongkok, I can say that it is worthy of satisfying your hunger, craving for Chinese food and not robbing your wallet of too high of a bill. The above meal was only for my friend, Apple, and I last (Holy) Tuesday hence the seafood and it only cost us less than P300 ($7) each! We had the rest wrapped for take out because we are already too stuffed to even stand up. No exaggeration! :)

We always order for the squid, the sweet and sour pork or fish, some dumplings and lemon chicken but since there were only 2 of us and we're on "diet" we ordered for less ;)

Give Mongkok a visit if you are in Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Powerplant Mall, Robinson's Galleria, Greenhills Theater Mall, SM Southmall.


  1. I love Mongkok. Forgot the name of the dish pero meron din dun na beef na tagal ko hinanap. We used to order it sa Kowloon house more than 20 years ago tapos di namin nakita pa anywhere.

    When I tried the dish sa Mongkok, sakto. Brought back memories of my childhood :)

  2. their seafood noodle soup was kinda good.
