Finally got to try Fat Fook with Josh last Saturday, after he accompanied me to my company APE. I have seen so much posts here on the looloo app about this restaurant and now I understand why. 128513 Their food are all so so so good! 128156 While I was a bit impatient and hangry that we had to wait for a while before we were seated, it was all worth it. 128076 Here's what we got:

✅ FRIED SQUID (Php 268) - 11088110881108811088
Josh loves fried squid, and according to him, the best one is found at North Park. When we tasted this, he immediately mentioned that it is very soft (good thing he liked it)! The batter was light and it was not too oily. We both agreed that it was a little bland though, so we had to ask the server to give us some vinegar for dipping. I hope they can serve this with spiced vinegar next time! 128076

✅ FAT FOOK CHICKEN CHOPS WITH HAND PULLED NOODLES (Php 298) - 11088110881108811088
Okay so most of the reviews I have read spoke highly of their chicken chops, and for a good reason. The chops were well-seasoned, juicy, tender, with a light batter. 127831 It is something I can munch on piece after piece, and is flexible enough to be paired with rice, noodles, or eaten on its own. 511088 for the chicken chops! The noodles, on the other hand, had a huge serving size. We split this into two, and had enough for each of us. 128512 The noodles were not as firm as I hoped it would be, but it was not bad either.

✅ OYSTER OMELETTE (Php 288) - 1108811088110881108811088
This was the highlight of our lunch! 128525 The oysters were really big and fresh, and we appreciated how the bokchoy minimized the umay factor of the dish as a whole. Each bite was such a delight for us -- Josh and I agreed that we might be able to finish one whole omelette each! 128586We LOVED it! I'd definitely come back to get this again. 128156128156128156 Highly recommended!

We also got a cup of Plain Rice (Php 48) to go with our meal (just one cup for us since I am cutting down on my rice intake!) Overall, the food were really enjoyable and delicious. 128156128076 This is definitely a place I will recommend when it comes to Taiwanese cuisine. And again, their Oyster Omelette was the best one I've tasted to date!!! 128525

Food were served quickly, so I eventually got rid of my hangry self. 128586 When we billed out though, it took a REALLY long time and they're still not handing back the change and receipt. While, yes, our change was just Php 8, it should be upto us whether we're taking it or leaving it as tip. Also, receipts should always be provided to the customer. For this, I'll deduct 111088 from them. Sorry, Fat Fook! 128528 Food was good, but it is really my pet peeve if I don't get my receipt. 128533

When we arrived here and asked if we could use GCs, the receptionist's first question was, "Ay. Blogger po kayo?" "Ay, hindi po. Gutom lang."

So we sat near their "aquarium" kitchen and watched food preparation and chefs in action. Orders were chicken chop set (with rice) and pork chop set, plus pot stickers. The chicken was divine as it tasted similar to my favorite peppered tofu in Serenitea. Friend said that the porkchop was a sure "ulam" material while the pot stickers were a big 128581🏻. What's interesting is you can opt for either noodle soup or rice for both sets.

We used GC and still added a few hundreds. Why is it 4/5? The food is good, don't get me wrong. This place will bring you to Taiwan with its food as it has almost everything that you love in Taiwan. But run away from their dumplings because it will bring you back to the Philippines in an instant. Aside from pot stickers to be avoided, my friend said the price is a little steep for the serving size.

Still, will I come back? YES!

After our hunting for great intern finds, we felt the hunger setting in..128518128518128518

Considering it is a rare moment for my friend to visit QC made me think where to have dinner in a place where there isn’t anything like it in Makati ....so off we went to Fat Fook Taiwanese Kitchen... it kinda looks intimidating from the outside, maybe because you would immediately sense that it may be pricey, but well I was wrong when I saw the menu.... again another hefty and shareable episode....and most of all the cooking wasn’t commercially salty which was great 12852210084128077🏻127881

Was surprised to find out that they also serve set and group meals! So you get to taste a bit of everything!

Hands down to the Chicken Chops! Tender meat and its breading wasn’t thick enough so that you could truly enjoy the juicy chicken! Wishing it had some sort of sauce though 128522128522128522 Its taste was good enough to match our egg and garlic rice! 12852210084128077🏻

They have a set of chicken chops that comes with hand-pulled-like noodles! Yumyum! shareable serving! Those large breaded slices remind me of Tasty Porkchop in Binondo actually 12852210084128077🏻

Hot & Sour Soup was also a success! Not too salty 12852210084128077🏻

We tried out the cold tofu with century egg and pork floss toppings! Yummily done as well with its flavorful soy based sauce!

Next came the prawn salad... well, happy for the plump prawns and the salad that felt like dinner and dessert in one, hehehe 128518128518128518 nicely cooked :)12852210084128077🏻

Aside from fellow Pinoys who love chinese food, I was also surprised to spot chinese locals dining here, probably in the search for that authentic taste of home :) And I think they did! Hehehe 128522128522128522

Had dinner at Fat Fook with my foodie friend, Richie (www.thepickiesteater.net) before the premiere of a movie at SM North EDSA. I like how the place is well-lit and the creativity that they have with their interiors. The staff are also very accommodating.

Here are the dishes that we tried:

Taiwanese Sausage. At first, I thought that it was sliced cheese in between the sausages, I was surprised to find out it was garlic. It was an unusual combination for me, but I enjoyed it anyway.

Taiwan Style Fried Rice. Well-seasoned and rich in flavor.

Salted Egg Xiao Long Bao. I love xiao long baos as well as salted egg dishes. A combination of both is just so good.

Salted Egg Shrimp. Another salted egg dish. Tastes great.

Fat Fook Chicken Chop. Tender chicken chops.

Sweet and Sour Pork. One of my favorite dishes. Goes well with their rice.

Namiss ko dito sa North 128514 so we've finally tried Fat Fook and hubs and i loved it! We had our late lunch/merienda and marami paring tao. Server was courteous and patiently took our order dahil di pa namin alam kakainin namin 128517

* sobrang naenjoy namin yung xiao long bao. You can watch them make the dumplings and napapaisip kami paano nagkakasabaw sa loob 128514 (ginoogle ko, may pork jelly na nilalagay hahahaha)

* yung fried intestine ang sarap haha crispy and walang seasoning pero iddip mo sya sa salt/pepper at mas lalong masarap hehe medyo nakakahilo nga lang pag nakarami 128514

* chicken chop nila malasa. Akala ko nung una baka kalasa ng Hot Star pero hindi. At hindi mo na kailangan ng dip or sauce. Sarap iulam hahaha

* stir fried eggplant di ko inexpect na magugustuhan ko dahil di ako mahilig sa eggplant. Medyo oily pero masarap yung sauce. Gusto ko siyang irecreate sa bahay hehe

* taiwanese fried rice ( ?) medyo oily din pero masarap haha perfect combination sa food nila :)

* may tea pala sila. Hindi free hehe nasa 90php pero refillable. Medyo lasang kalawang pag nababad na masyado yung tea leaves. Pwede naman papalitan :) hehe

May onting umay factor sa sobrang malasa yung food nila. Kailangan ng dessert haha Good for sharing and sakto yung price. Spent about 1,200 para sa 2.5 na tao haha (0.5 yung junakis ko)

Two words: Fried Intestines!

Best eaten with their very fragrant rice or just on its own, dipped in spicy vinegar!

Okay, 3 more words: Xiao Long Bao! I can eat this forever! Hahahaha

Priced just right, FatFook Manila provides fast and filling meals that are easy on the pocket. Authentic Chinese/Taiwanese treats that make you feel like you are in Taiwan already!

Great ambience, cute light fixtures too! :)

Also, that mochi filled with red beans is bomb! Not too sweet and the crushed peanut was a good touch for texture and balance! 10084

After watching a movie with my parents, I suggested we check this restaurant out. Heard they were offering xiao long bao and wanted to try it out.

Of course for starters we ordered Pork Xiao Long Bao (Php 198 for 8 pieces) super sulit! And the taste was relatively good. Although the wrap was a little bit tough.

PROMO Php 948: good for four people. You’ll get three dishes, 4 cups of steamed white rice and four glasses of iced tea. The three dishes were:
Stirred Fried Eggplant with minced pork - the eggplant was overcooked for my taste. But I liked minced pork and sauce with it. It was good to top on rice.
Fat Fook chicken chop - woohoo! Reminded me of Taiwan street food also known as Hot Star fried chicken which was so delicious.
Sweet and sour pork - Only a few pieces of pork but I liked how they cooked the pork with sweet tangy sauce. It had pineapple and I’m not a fan of it on savory dishes.

The price of the dishes were affordable and the food serving along with quality wasn’t bad at all.

I've always been so curious about Fat Fook ever since I saw several posts of its famous chicken chops online. It made me wonder if it would be a lot better than the other brands that claim to offer the number 1 Taiwanese chicken chops. However, its location wasn't exactly a "couple of blocks away" from where I live so it took me several months before I got to visit it. And I finally did last December when I was out panicking on what gifts to buy.

Hello, Fat Fook.

It was refreshing to step inside this beautiful restaurant with porcelain bowls for light fixtures and comfortable couches. It was the break I needed from the Christmas mayhem.

I was quickly assisted towards one of the vacant couches and I ordered Fat Fook Chicken Chops (PHP238) and Xiao Long Bao (PHP138, 5 pieces | PHP198, 8 pieces). I also got a glass of Wintermelon Tea (PHP98).

Service was fast and I got my drink within 5 minutes. It took so much effort for me not to take a sip till all orders arrived for that "group photo."

Good thing my other orders arrived within the 15 minute mark and I got to take one long sip after the taking a few snapshots. And it was one sweet refreshing sip. I loved that it was not very sweet though the wintermelon taste made me want to enjoy it with tapioca balls.

For PHP238, Fat Fook's chicken chops is value for money. One order can be shared by two and even three or four if eaten as snack.

I absolutely love its crunchy thin batter and the very flavorful and juicy meat. Though chicken chops are usually enjoyed as a snack, I prefer to eat this with rice.

Sadly, the xiao long bao did not meet my standards as the wrapper was a bit too thick for my liking. However, the pork filling and broth was spot on. I noticed that one of my XLB still had raw flour on it and pointed it to the manager on duty. And without questions asked, she offered to replace my order with a new one. But I already ate four of the XLB and simply declined her generous offer. Nonetheless, I commend such good service.

Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience and I would definitely go back for more chicken chops. (And I actually did last March. But that's for another blog entry.)

Fat Fook is located at Ground Floor, SM North Edsa Main Building, SM City North Edsa, Quezon City.

Fat Fook Manila is an authentic Taiwanese Kitchen located at Ground Floor of SM North Edsa.

Many thanks to Peanut D and the rest of the Looloo Team for the Gcs as token for my 2k reviews in Looloo127881

Used it last July 22 and treat my family including my Mama Elaine P who is turning senior citizen in Looloo. Baka may pa Senior Citizen treat daw Peanut D128540 She is turning 60 real soon. The first Senior Citizen ng Looloo128105

Hubby and I is starting to love lately Taiwanese cuisine so I'm really excited for my kids and my mom to try it.

I ordered plenty of food that might. We had their famous chicken chops. What's good about it aside from it was delicious is that it's good for sharing . Most of the meals where good for sharing , very generous Fat Fook Manila. Then our Taiwanese food trip wouldn't be complete without trying the Pork Xiao Long Bao and it's really good 128076. Their salted and egg shrimp is a must try also. We had other dishes too like beef salt and pepper, Taiwanese rice , Taiwanese noodles, eggplant , and sweet and sour porl. For desserts , we had taho and the Mango Bingsu 127819 is a winner to complete our happy aver after dinner here. It's really a feast that night and we enjoyed a lot.

The price is affordable and worth every penny128076 highly recommended if you love Taiwanese cuisine.

Ambience was nice and love the open kitchen. It was clean and the cooks are hard working in making the Taiwanese dishes.

The manager and staffs are very very friendly accommodating. You don't need to call them much if you need anything, they roam around eveytime to check if the customers need something and that's what I called a GOOD SERVICE!

The first time I visited Fat Fook was during a looloo rendezvoos (#doubleOforbranding) a few months ago. Just recently I was able to visit again recently, thanks to looloo and Fat Fook. We ordered the package Feast of Flavors for 6 which includes the following:

|Taiwan Style Fried Rice
|Taiwan Fried Noodles
|Fat Fook Chicken Chop
|Sweet & Sour Pork
|Salted Egg String Beans
|Iced Tea Pitcher

I remember the chicken chop was one of the dishes I liked during the first visit so when it got served this time, I said “nice to MEAT you again.” *badumtsss* #loolooweeklychallenge

Good to have decent Taiwanese food in the North, especially when you're craving Xiao Long Bao. I liked that their XLB had a thin melt-in-your-mouth wrapper, but wished the pork had a little bit more flavour. The sweet and sour was good and had balanced flavours; and went well with the taiwanese fried rice.

The service is a little slow considering we were here at an odd hour. There isnt a server around all the time so we had to wait for them to be visible to take our requests. The price is also a little steep considering the serving size of the entree. Other than that, it was a pleasant experience.

Fat Fook is good for sharing! So if you're out with friends or family and want something chinese *taiwanese* 128522 Fat Fook is the place to be.
We ordered their Fried Pork Chop. (As seen on their Ads) The pork is tender. Had a good crust on the outside and it wasn't over seasoned. Xiao Long bao was delicious which is my personal favorite. Their noodles and fried rice were also okay
Overall food, service and ambiance was good.

Went to SM North for the first time in years thanks to Fatfook's Xiao Long Bao contest on Looloo's Instagram.

The things I do for xiao long bao... 128517

The trip was sulit!

I got them for free this time, but their 5-pc XLB's a steal for its price (P138). The meat was tender, the wrapper wasn't too thick, and the soup was flavorful. Parang tinola but pork version.

I also ordered their fried porkchop noodles (P228) and stinky tofu (P198).

The flat noodles with broth had minimal flavor so it was a good partner for the chop especially if you're not into rice. A single serving is already good for 2.

Their stinky tofu, on the other hand, is good for no one. Kidding. Maybe.

I first encountered stinky tofu while traveling so I thought it was a devil I know. Di pa rin talaga, eh. First of all, it's tofu. Is that even food lol.

It's also legit stinky. Like binabad-sa-essence-ng-baboy-na-kinatay-nung-madaling-araw kind of stinky. 128567

The saving grace (aside from my sister who liked the thing and finished it) was the accompanying pickled vegetables which cut into the stink.

Overall, it was still a good visit. The place was clean and Ms Joy and her staff were efficient and accommodating.

Try their stinky tofu for the experience! I promise you'll...live 128521

Thanks to looloo's GC i can now discover more food choices here at fatfook. Last time we were here, i believe fatfook did not give their best yet.
Now let's see some more ups and downs of their offerings.

I could now confirm that all their dishes are good for two! But yah, i just ate alone last night 128540

128204128525 tofu with century eggs and porkfloss @198PhP
Whoa probably their best appetizer ever, aside from their stinky tofu, this dish represents their theme well. The tofu is soft paired with a sweet sauce that's thick. Their pork floss were really good. Thick strands and very tasty. Century eggs--could any chinese/taiwanesee cuisine abandon this ingredient an their menu?

128204128525 Pork Cuapao @188PhP
And it was served to me shouting "hey, eat me!" Pork portion consists of that putok batok fat with equal amount of super tender pork. The peanuts, mustasa and wansoy made the the dish very homey (for a chinese) and oriental.

128204 eggplant with porkfloss @198PhP
This sucks but i ordered this just to make sure that i dont become bitin and i remembered PPD's eggplant tower-- no. I should not have and neither should you unless they make any revision on the bland and dry (egg batter) eggplant. I suggest they come up with a sauce to go with it-- pero please wag the same sauce as the tofu because magiging monotonous na lahat. Something spicy?

128204 masachi @128PhP
Mark L true that they make it from scratch. It's like buchi guys, only the covering is like tikoy. They fry it and then roll it in sugar and ground peanuts. My dismay that is a little too oily. The red bean paste inside is few as well. I go for taho instead.

Service was okay. They ignored me until i was seated.
But again technically it's a 4 but critically 3.6

Oh Peanut D look.
Salisi gang Bella J and Ruth D here's your credit. Looks like if you ever had any salisi moments, you can still give them credits on your second review!! 128587🏻‍♂️128077🏼

The same group who manages popular ramen chain, Ramen Nagi,brings you Taiwanese dishes through their new food venture, Fat Fook. The name simply means “big fortune.”

Fat Fook is located at one of the busiest malls in QC, which is SM City North Edsa. Going here solo and on a whim, I was able to visit their restaurant on a sponsored invite, and I was lucky to try out six of their dishes.

I think that their chicken and sausage claypot rice owes its charm to its nicely flavored chicken strips. Since I’m not such a huge fan of sausages, I find its quantity a bit too much on my end. I would also love to have some burnt rice from the bottom of the pot, but to my dismay, it was presented in a different way.

Their tendon could have been more beefy, just like how North Park has mastered cooking theirs. Fat Fook’s just seemed plain, in my opinion. Its tenderness compensated for what it lacked in taste. It melted in my mouth like how fat would.

Their spinach with three eggs was delicious, but I find Kanzhu’s version even better. The hint of salted egg in it though was, for me, a brave move. I suggest that they use thicker sauce using the egg yolk.

Their chicken chops is their best selling dish. I think that their meat was nicely seasoned, but they just went overboard with the breading.

I super enjoyed their xiao long bao. If it wasn’t obvious, I had finished eating five in less than five minutes. Even without dipping it into the black vinegar that came with it, it’s just good as it is.

Overall, I find their dishes nice, but they just had to make a few tweaks on them to make them perfect.
