Fortune Seafood Restaurant is located at Otek street which is a few meters walking distance from Baguio City Rizal Park. It was opened late last year (2013) and instantly became a haven for Chinese delicacy seekers. We have covered a few events at their function hall but it was only last January 31, 2013, eve of Chinese new year, that we decided to taste what this restaurant can offer.
First thing, when we entered the restaurant, almost all tables were full of Chinoys. It was understandable because it was the eve of Chinese new year. Luckily, there were two vacant tables near the glass window. After sitting down, one waitress came and offered free Chinese tea while we were checking out the menu.
Looking at the table setting, I noticed its fine arrangement and while looking around, the ambience full of Chinese and Chinoys already gave me the idea that this will be an expensive dinner. When I opened the menu book, the prices varied depending on the level of skill. I said this because there were dishes that were expensive to prepare. But for a fine dinning experience, I found the prices affordable.
We ordered Fortune Soup, Chinese Chicken, Chao fan, Fish Tausi, siopao, some dimsums. Considering there were only three of us, it was more than enough. My general comment is that the servings were big. At least we got what we paid for. As for the taste, the dishes were indeed prepared by a chef. I enjoyed the fish tausi, it was so soft and tender. The Fortune soup looked weird because of its greenish color but whatever was in that soup tasted good. The fried rice was already a full meal in itself. It had meat, egg, ham, shrimps, onions, garlic and some spices. The dimsums and siopao tasted regular. Also, the brewed coffee was small and unfortunately, I did not appreciate the taste. But aside from that, everything was great. We enjoyed the Chinese new year dinner.
Their menu showed a lot of dishes to choose from and we still have to taste what this Chinese seafood restaurant really has to offer. But in the meantime, this is my review.
