Hello dearies! Today I will be sharing with you my latest foodie adventure. I was invited again by the Zomato team for a lunch at Taza de Oro Food Garden in Greenhills.
The place reminds me of those Chinese restaurants that my family used to dine. The restaurant is a family owned business. According to Ms. Jennifer, it started its operation September of 2010. They serve classic Chinese and Singaporean dishes. The restaurant is divided into two areas: Taza de Oro proper and Tazamix which serves shabu shabu hot pot and grilled dishes.

Aside from the restaurant they also sell some own-made frozen delights like tocino and longganisa. These are made without using extenders and preservatives. They also do catering services good for 200-300 persons with full set-up including tables and chairs.
Fresh fish and shrimps.
The food was good and the serving of the dishes is good for 3-5 persons. Here are the dishes that I tried.
Seafood Spinach Soup. The soup is made from mixed diced seafood. It’s tasty and perfect to sip during cold rainy days.
Mixed Cold Cuts. This dish serves as an appetizer. The meat is tasty and juicy.
Taza de Oro Fried Rice. Basic fried rice with a twist because they added Chinese sausage. Perfect to pair with the golden butter chicken.
Buttered Lapu-lapu fish fillet. I like the presentation of this dish. The fish meat is deeply fried until crispy. Served with two kinds of sauces the butter and sweet and sour sauce. For me this goes well with the butter sauce. The mango salsa serves as a taste neutralizer.
Buttered chicken. Their best seller and I must say its true! Chicken coated with flour, butter and some spices then deep fried. It is super flavourful. The meat is tender and juicy. A must try dish!
Braised Patatim with 12 pcs. Cuapao. The meat is cooked perfectly. It’s soft and it taste good. The taste is quite similar to pork asado. Perfect to eat with the cuapao.
Mixed Vegetable Foo Yong. An omelette dish. It consists of vegetables, seafood and meat. This dish is packed with flavour. This is also goes well with the fried rice.

Pansit canton with a twist. This is actually served using a crispy pansit noodles. This is actually my first time to eat this kind of noodle dish. The sauce which consist of vegetables, meat and seafood goes well with the noodle. It’s fun to eat because you need to slice the noodles like pizza.
Mixed Seafood Broccoli. Fresh and crispy broccoli with mixed seafood like shrimps, sea cucumber and squid. It was my first time to try sea cucumber. I actually mistaken this as a mushroom. It’s slippery and soft to bite and it’s a bit salty.
Buchi and Halo-halo Turon.
One of the best buchi that I tried. Their buchi is crispy and not oily. The filling is so delicious. I find the halo-halo turon unique. It has banana, monggo and buko meat. I prefer buchi over this one.
Mango Sago. Made from fresh ripe mangoes, mango puree and sago. I love the sweet and tangy taste of this dessert.
