I like that they have congee, which is one of the few foods that my stomach can tolerate currently 128567

I hate feeling not being able to eat the dishes that I liked eating, I hate this stomach flu-like feeling 128542 128546

This afternoon, I ordered a beef congee and siopao asado. Thankfully my stomach didn’t react but in the long run, it did 128549

The service was excellent.
Price was affordable.
Food, great as always, particularly love the siopao asado. 128521

There’s a lack of choices in Greenbelt 1 compared to its other sections. So since we were rushing to watch a play, we ended up having quick and classic Hong Kong/ Chinese cuisine. It’s one of the go to types of food that’s familiar, affordable and fills you up.

Am a fan of vegetables especially sautéed style and their Lo Hon Chai was prepared well. It has crisp textures yet saucy features. I also loved the crunchy touch of its Chinese mushrooms.

Also picked the usuals and they didn’t disappoint. The Lemon Chicken was sweet and lemony as expected. Its meat quite plump and wa s very immersed with the sauce. The Beef with Broccoli, a nice balance of soft beef and fresh vegetable.

The one I liked most was their Sizzling King Dao Spareribs. It wasn’t as fatty and was lean. The sauce was nice combination of sweet, spice and salty features , quite addictive. Best paired with rice.

The Mango Sago though was a bad pick. It was too artificial and way too sweet. You have to skip this one.

For fast (and I mean, really fast) service, must visit David's Tea House here in Greenbelt 1. They have a big dining space that gets filled up quickly during peak hours. We got a table before the crowd and after 5 minutes of taking our orders, it was promptly delivered. We had the Classic Half Chicken, Yang Chow Rice and Broccolli Flowers in Garlic. Everything was served hot. The rice looked small in its serving bowl but was surprised that it was able to feed our big group. The chicken was crisp and had a nice faint clove or anise taste, not too overpowering. The meat was soft and juicy. The vegetables had a nice crisp crunch but was cooked through. The garlic was a nice touch to the dish. We enjoyed eating here, but expect the place to be noisy. With everyone in a rush. Ask for tea because it will not be served unless requested. Recommended.

So yes, David's Teahouse is our go-to place for our Chinese cravings! We ordered the assorted dimsum platter for sharing, our usual order, for P250. This is a good choice, trust me. You'll be able to try everything, sulit promise! Plus he got the sweet and sour pork rice, and I ordered the wanton beef noodles because I was sick and wanted something hot. He shared his food, although I initially declined but ended finishing his food. I didn't say that I actually like the sweet and sour pork, it tasted really good. We shared the wanton beef noodles too. One of the other things that I like about David's teahouse is the tea, good for the bloated tummy. Hihi.

You can never go wrong here 128077🏻
Ordered our family's favorites: polonchay soup, steamed fish fillet with garlic, yangchow fried rice and crispy fried chicken (my first time to try this though)
I think this place is one of the consistent restaurants one can find out there, at good price point even.

As I was craving for Chinese food and didn't want to wander further away from parking - decided to eat here at David's. I have previously eaten at David's but at Binondo (not recommended) and A.Venue (quite good), so it was a 50-50 for me.

I ordered chicken&corn soup and lemon chicken (i stopped eating pork so that's why the double chicken there 128541). I really liked both of them, very fresh and delicious - I'd come here for sure (just to give Mann Hann some time away 128513)

Ahhhhh, beef brisket wanton noodles!!! Perfect fix for soupy cravings! Had this all to myself! 128525 Not the best, but it's above average! 128514

Hard noodles, light broth, soft briskets and ohh, the wanton was awesome! Had japanese siomai to pair, and they were four small chunks of goodness!

I looove their Chrysanthemum tea... Very invigorating.

Their dim sum could be better (Xiao Long Bao should be juicy) but overall I like their food.
Peppered Squid is must try if you like spicy food.
Mapo Tofu is very good as well if it were spicier... You could some more chili oil anyways.
Yam Cake is Yummy!!! Also try Radish Cake if you want to be adventurous. :9

Service is also good. Very welcoming and all servers are accommodating.

David's Tea House. Home of Comfort food for Graduate Students. One can get a pretty decent meal for p175. The downside is that service is not that great but since they don't have service charge, I would say that it evens out :)

95 pesos for pretty good shrimp siomai.

What other places are there that have good and affordable siomai? 128516

If you want cheap, fast Chinese food, come to David's tea house. Just as a warning, if you order fish lip soup, it won't come with any fish lip :)

Got another congee!!! This time, I went for their pork century egg congee (@P135). From 1st to last sip - this congee just makes my day. The pork is good but the century egg and tofu makes it a winner! Add some soy sauce and chili for more excitement!

Great congee! Tried the sliced beef congee (P135) kanina and it was really good. The beef slices were so so soft and has no aftertaste. It's as if the beef will melt in my mouth sa sobrang lambot. A small dab of soy sauce and chili sauce will make spice up your congee :-) Panalo ito!

As usual, sunday is a family chinese dinner day.

We got a big bamboo steamer of mix dimsum, a complete set of hotpot with 2 flavors of soup, one is plain broth, and the other is satay. I liked the satay more cos it has a little spicy kick which makes the taste.

As per my request, we also ordered a Braised Pata Tim instead of crispy pata, the meat is so soft, it separates quickly from the bone. I just wish it would be a little more sweeter, then it would be a perfect pata tim.

We also had brocolli with garlic to offset the sin of having the pata tim. I liked it cos its crunchy and you can tell that their veggie is fresh.

happy chinese tummy indeed :)

If I am not mistaken, this is one of the first few David's Teahouse's branches. I am sure they have kept the good quality of the food through the years. One of the reasons I can attribute this too is the regular presence of one if the owners there. I find their food better than the one located at A. Venue. My family's favorite are: asado siopao, hakaw and pork siomai. Even my sister who lives abroad makes sure we have this in the house whenever she cones home. The asado siopao has fluffy bun, the amount of filling is proportional to the bun, tender meat flakes which tastes just right-not too sweet. Hakaw has hearty filling with thin fresh siomai wrap. Our all-time favorite, the pork siomai is not soggy, juicy and very meaty, the ground meat is just right in size, leaving you something to chew on, the shrimps add more flavor. You really have to taste it to understand why we love their siomai 128523
