Pearl River Cafe’s Authentic Cantonese Cuisine: Our Top 5 Picks on the Menu

When in Manila, our craving for certain kinds of food never stops. With the city offering great food in different genres of cuisine, there’s no reason not to give your tastebuds a treat every once in a while! :) 

Chinese food has been a classic part of our everyday life and restaurants offering it have already sprouted all over Manila. With its owner being an experienced restaurateur, Pearl River Cafe is one of those amazing restaurants that can really give you a taste of authentic Cantonese cuisine. Pearl River Cafe might just look like another one of the many restaurants in Trinoma, but you’ll be surprised to see what it has to offer in terms of Cantonese cuisine.

1. Shrimp Dim Sum

A Chinese restaurant is never complete without a wide variety of these. Even little kiosks offer dim sum. However, it is easy to see which ones are authentic and which ones are commercialized. Pearl River Cafe’s dim sum is made by their chefs right in the restaurant’s kitchen, so you can taste the freshness right away.

Look at that REAL shrimp filling! It’s not processed and not stuffed with the usual extenders – just shrimp chunks. It goes well with a dip that you can mix according to your own taste. This is the kind of dim sum that is worth coming back for. :)

2. Beef & Broccoli

Look at this beautiful dish. The broccoli was really crispy and went really well with the tender beef cuts. I also noticed that the carrots didn’t lose their own flavor even after they were cooked. Guess the chefs here really are top of the line!

3. Seafood Congee

Aside from the nuts and the garnishing, seafood pieces are hiding under that congee! You can really taste the whole shrimp pieces and squid cuts. For seafood lovers, the generosity of the serving will make the visit to Pearl River Cafe well worth it.

4. Mango Pomelo Sago

This dessert actually surprised me. It’s your favorite classic Mango Sago infused with Pomelo bits. The citrus fruit made it so yummy that it got me thinking why it’s only popular in Hong Kong and not in the Philippines. Yes, I know it’s popular in Hong Kong because I went as far as Googling it. :) Now I know it’s really authentic Cantonese cuisine

5. Passionberry Fruit Tisane and Serene Green Tea

I was never a fan of sugary milk tea, but it seems like my tastebuds were simply looking for this legit tea all along. These organic iced teas really hit the spot. To all tea lovers out there, these are definite must-trys!

To top it all off, Pearl River Cafe also maintains a very good ambiance. With the Chinese music, I felt like I was in a restaurant in Ongpin without the usual loud chatter. Yup, this place offers REAL food with the best ambiance. They also have a super friendly staff to boot!
