Proof of the Chinese influence in Filipino cuisine is almost in every corner of our country. Chinese businesses especially restaurants and food hubs have spouted like mushrooms. Well, if you are craving for some authentic Chinese cuisine, there is always China Town in Binondo to satisfy your yen. But did you know there is also this Chinese restaurant in Harbour Square Malate which offers fine dining yet at very reasonable prices?
I had the chance to experience the Hap Chan menu when some friends and I had a photo shoot at Harbour Square during the Cinemalaya week. Hap Chan Tea House and Seafoods Restaurant actually falls under three categories. First, it is a traditional teahouse where anyone can enjoy sipping a cup of tea while munching some of their best selling dimsums, congee, etc. Second, it offers fine-dining for those looking for exclusive menu cooked by their well-trained and certified Hong Kong chefs. And don't get confused with the third category; although Hap Chan is known to be a fine-dining restaurant, it also caters plates for casual-dining and full-course meals.
