Resorts World’s Victoria Harbour Cafe: Satisfy Your Asian Food Cravings!
When people hear Resorts World Manila, it often comes with the words premiere, excellence and nothing compares. The word expensive usually follows because class doesn’t come cheap. Wellllllllllll, I think it’ll blow your mind when I tell you that to experience Resorts World Manila, it doesn’t need to be expensive, especially with dining. There’s an upscale restaurant that just opened in RWM that not only serves great food (really really really yummy, I swear), it also doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.
Let me introduce you to Victoria Harbour Cafe, the newest restaurant to open in Resorts World Manila!

Pretty. Victoria Harbour Cafe’s interior is pure sophistication.
There’s relaxing music and lighting from the red lanterns strung up on the ceiling (I can’t help but look up!). Also, the place is spacious and perfect for dates and reunions.
Master Chef David Choo
All hail the Chef that cooked us good food. We were introduced to the star that created all the chow we ate that day, Master Chef David Choo.
Quick Trivia: Chef David is the executive chef of The Genting Club, RWM’s exclusive lifestyle club. He’s famous for his curry puffs served at Cafe Maxims!

Asian Comfort Food
Hear ye, hear ye! Calling all milk tea fanatics. They got delicious milk tea, hot and cold! Also, look at that beautiful and innovative presentation! Not only is the setup useful – the ice keeps the tea cold without diluting the drink; It is also instagram worthy.
Iced Milk Tea – 80Php
I’m so kilig when I saw the dimsum Siomai. It is huge. It’s topped with roe and when you bite into it, they pop. It’s like New Year’s in your mouth.
Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumpling (Siomai) – 150Php
They’ve got Hakaw too which is always exciting because.. shrimp! And likewise with the siomai, it’s big!
Steamed Shrimp Dumpling (Har Gao) – 165Php
Chef David told us that dimsums are typically the hardest to make. Like this pork pao, he said. It takes precision and skill to prepare the pao in order to make the top open that way while it cooks. Cool, huh?
Steamed Barbequed Honey Pork Pao – 130Php
Chef also introduced us to Malaysian curry. He said Malaysian dishes are really spicy.. but this one is fitted and adjusted for Pinoy’s taste. The result: A curry just right, creamy and rich.
Steamed Rice with Chicken Curry – 200Php
This one is my favorite. The beef brisket is love. It’s sweet and tender… it’s satisfying. *Burp*
Pak Choy Rice with Beef Brisket – 230Php
Victoria Harbour Cafe serves Char Kway Teow in 2 flavours – beef and shrimp. We’ve got to taste the shrimp and it’s oh so good. It’s spicy (a manifestation of Chef David’s roots!) and but again, with the right amount of hotness.
Penang Char Kway Teow – 200Php
An eastern meal wouldn’t be complete without noodles. They just have that. They’ve got a few wontons tossed in which we ate effervescently. We really love the dimsums and dumplings.
The noodles is worth noting too. Chef told us it’s made fresh everyday.
Wonton Noodle Soup – 200Php
Pork and chicken into one dish… so you wouldn’t have to choose. The chicken skin, thin and crispy, is two thumbs up!
Steamed Rice with Roast Pork and Chicken – 200Php
Toast with Butter and Kaya – 80Php
I was also able to taste the legendary Custard Bun. It’s like its siopao plus mochi into one. And the filling’s texture is similar to salted egg. Yum! Too bad it’s not available on the menu yet as its served exclusively for the Genting Club (Buti nalang we got to try it because chef was there with us!) but I’m crossing my fingers on this one.
I love their Mango Sago. While other Chinese restaurants serve watery versions of the dessert, this one is more like ice cream in consistency. The pomelo gives it more texture and kick. Awesomesauce.It’s a great sweet to end the night.
Creamy Mango with Pomelo and Sago – 100Php

I can’t wait to go back and sample their other items. Victoria Harbour Cafe is one of those restaurants that I’ll keep coming back for.
For those wondering where the place is located – It is inside at the ground floor gaming area. They are full house during weekends so you better get your game on and wrestle your way through the people who want to taste Chef David Choo’s menu. I’m telling you, its really worth it. Just like love… and Victoria Harbour Cafe is love. :)
