Foodie Review: Something New Xilaimen Seafood Restaurant


Hello dearies!

Last June 29, 2015, I was invited to be part of the Food Bloggers’ Night held at Xilaimen Seafood Restaurant in Robinson’s Magnolia.

Xilaimen Seafood Restaurant opened last June 19, 2015 and currently on soft opening status. Xilaimen is actually a sister company of King Bee (you can read my review here).

The word ‘Xilaimen’ means Happiness coming to the door. According to Ms. Andrea Ng, the Marketing Operations Manager of Xilaimen, they want to provide their customers the best meal and service that they could offer.


The restaurant is spacious and can accommodate up to 200 persons. Xilaimen also has two private function rooms for intimate family gatherings, events and meetings. Each function room can accommodate 12 guests.

The interior is quite similar to King Bee. They have these big and elegant Chinese inspired lamps. The yellow gold and red table-cloth adds more elegant vibe to the place.




They offer more fresh seafood dishes than King Bee. Customers can pick their choice of fresh seafood to be cooked. Aside from fresh seafood, they also offer exotic specialties like frog legs.

Rock lobsters and more.

Here are the lavish dishes that we tried:

image Cold cuts combination Php 370. Basically a plate loaded with mouth-watering Chinese cold cuts. A mix of century egg, tofu, chicken and pork. The dish is served with three kinds of sauces. This dish serves as an appetizer.

image Mixed seafood with Polonchay soup Php 290. This ‘green soup’ reminds me of detox veggie drinks. It’s chunky and flavourful perfect to sip during chilly weather.

image Fried Lapu lapu fillet in egg white. Steamed Lapu lapu topped with scambled egg white. I find this dish a little bland though the fish meat is soft and juicy. It goes well with egg white.

image Lechon Macau Php 300. The meat is perfectly cooked. It’s crispy and yet juicy. You don’t need a sauce because it’s good to eat on its own.

image Pan fried prawns with salted egg yolk Php 390. Big juicy prawns pan-fried then served with rich sauce made from salted egg yolk. Yummers!

image Spicy frog legs Php 380. Surprisingly this dish is delicious. The frog meat is juicy and it tastes like chicken.

image Yang Chow fried rice Php 220. Their yang chow fried rice is one of the best that I’ve tried. It is packed with vegetables, meat and shrimps. You can actually eat this on its own.

image Elephant shell with broccoli in xo sauce. It was actually my first time to taste elephant shell. Elephant shell is a type of shelled seafood with long elephant tusk like body. The meat is sweet and savory. Broccoli is fresh and crisp. The xo sauce added a bit of spice in this dish.

image Green mango shake. Fresh green mango drink somewhat refreshes your taste buds after tasting all the sumptuous dishes.

image Saté fried crabs with sotanghon. Fresh crabs marinated in saté is sinfully good. This is actually my favorite among the dishes. The sweet crab meat blends well with the spicy saté sauce. Double thumbs up!

image Mixed fruit platter Php 280. A platter of various fruit selection: apple, pineapple, watermelon and ponkan. It’s simple and yet creative way to present fruits. ♡

I really enjoyed the food and I can’t wait to try their other dishes.
