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! :)

Super!!! This is now one of my favorite places, kinda far from Eastwood but it was def worth it! That breaded eggplant tho with their unlimited supply of chili oil! Daaaaamn!

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.

First, let me thank Peanut D., and the looloo crew for continuously inviting me to your outings. With my many declinations due to my hectic schedule, I finally made it to at least one! Many, many, [many] thank you's! It was a pleasure to meet all who attended last night.

Second, to Khae & Ynk, and staff of Fat Fook, thank you for accommodating us. We all had a blast!

Let's begin...

I'll start off with their Stinky Tofu (₱198): This particular dish is not for those with a sensitive olfactory sense. I believe "stinky" is an understatement to describe the malodorousness this dish barrels. With an acquired taste, there's a certainty one will grow to like, even love stinky tofu. I sure did!

Fat Fook Chicken Chop (₱268): I enjoy any Asian style chicken cutlets when it's properly breaded, properly seasoned, and perfectly cooked. What separates this breaded cutlet with others is the five spice they used for seasoning. It was a big plus in my book. Ten thumbs up--if all my fingers were thumbs. 128517

Taiwan Style Fried Rice (₱258): I'm not a connoisseur of fried rice. All I can say is that it it was a little too oily for me, but nonetheless good. It worked hand in hand with the Fat Fook Chicken Chop.

Taiwan Beef Noodles (₱258): Noodles made by Fat Fook + tender brisket + broth that you can see taste that it's been simmering for hours = WINNER! I would have finished one of the three bowls we were given, but since this this was my very first meeting with the looloo crew, I was too shy to scarf it down. 128517

Salted Egg Xiao Long Bao (₱138 5pcs; ₱198 8pcs): This was the first time I've tried Xiao Long Bao. During the time I was in the U.S., either the idea of having soup inside a dumpling wasn't yet conceived, or I just wasn't in the loop. Once the burst of the warm soup hits your tastebuds as soon as you take a bite, a bumrush of flavors explode. The feeling takes you back during the days you soak your Oreo cookie in milk just before the cookie breaks. I loved that the salted egg wasn't overpowering. You'll want to break out into your "good food" dance. Too bad none of you see my little number. (lol)

Shaved Ice (₱168 Mango; ₱198 Watermelon): I only thought Hawaiians made awesome shaved ice! This was a light and refreshing dessert. This, too can be a great appetizer where in it cleanses your palate before you chomp down on your favorite meal.

Chilled Taho (₱298): One word to describe this--wonderful! This is another palate cleanser. I do enjoy this than the warm taho served in the mornings. Because I'm not too fond of sweets, I loved that the fact that the syrup wasn't so.

The prices on what's offered on their menu are very decent. Each serving is good for at most 3 people. You will get your money's worth.

Kudos to the chef!

Happy Eating!!!

Fatfook is an example of elegant Taiwanese-style dining in a Chinese-styled restaurant with a Cantonese name. To begin with, the ambient interiors are lined with unconventional displays of Chinese luxury. Porcelain bowls are used on the ceiling as lampshades and decor. The walls are lined with stencils of Cultural Revolution period art. The tables and chairs are made out of thick, rough wood. The walls are lined with Ming dynasty door patterns and olden Chinese restaurant color motifs. the couches are lined with luxurious silk covers.

The name, on the other hand, is the Cantonese word for "continuous blessings". As to why the restaurant has a Cantonese name is beyond my comprehension; but it is interesting to note that "Fatfook" is often a target for mischievous people who use it with double meanings. I must say that the unique name has added to its popularity online and in the real world.

The branch is the first from this esteemed restaurant group who brought the much sought-after Ramen Nagi, a Japanese ramen house. To say the least, this new brand has received critical acclaim from first-time diners and those adept in Chinese cuisine. Why shouldn't they give so much recognition for this? To start with the menu prices were highly reasonable, given that the restaurant was situated in the heart of SM North Edsa. Secondly, their Taiwanese specialties are made with regard to excellent cooking and ingredients. Lastly, some of their dishes are rarely served here in Manila.

Our three course meal was initiated with a fine helping of their Salted Egg Xiao Long Bao. The latter was part of the menu's newest offerings. At Php 198 it was a superb serving of the centuries old dish with a few twists. Every dumpling had a robust orange color which was unlike the typical pale white color of a usual serving. Also, every bite radiated with the sharp and distinct flavor of soup infused with salted egg. I must say that the salty flavor blended all too well with the meaty core.

The Chicken Chops at Php 238 were a steal. This was a fine example of what Taiwanese fried chicken should be like. The dish was typically good for two people. Every serving had a slab of golden brown deep-fried chicken that was true eye candy. The magnificent skin revealed a generous helping of tender chicken breasts that instantly melted with every bite. I truly enjoyed the crispy skin which was made from sweet potato starch. As for the tender white meat, I felt that I was truly blessed after taking every bite of it.

The Taiwan Beef Noodles was another excellent selection to their menu. The Php 258 price tag was enough to justify the soft textured beef chunks and vegetables that were essentially the soul of the dish. The spicy broth added a challenge to the ones uninitiated to spicy food. For chili lovers, the broth was an essential fixture of the already remarkable dish.

The Taiwan Style Fried Rice at Php 258 was a welcome complement to the chicken. the glorious mix of Chinese sausage, peas, long grained rice, and the special orange sauce added a little bit of sweetness to the intensity of the viands. I must say that this was a welcome addition to an already loaded meal.

Alas, who could forget the Stinky Tofu? The 198 price tag simply gave the dish the label of a cultural experience. The steep price was a veritable insult to the brave souls who dared endure the sickening taste and smell. Taiwan's most popular dish did not win our hearts; and I truly bet that it will be so for all eternity. I didn't know if a sick joke was being played on us; but I noted that the second serving posed a greater threat. The dish had a smell that engulfed a fourth of the entire room. Every bite of it weakened my willpower. It was as if a single cube gave me a bout with nausea and other physiological problems.

Thankfully, the Tofu's deplorable challenge was remedied by a generous serving of shaved ice treats. We had the mango and strawberry shaved ice. The former was a helping of fresh strawberries and colored syrup atop a mountain of ice. Every sip of this delicacy made me forget the last dish. The mango was much more remarkable for its natural sweetness. It simply didn't taste like an overdose of artificial flavors.

Fatfook's first branch is located at SM North Edsa. I do urge you to try out this Taiwanese restaurant for great food, excellent prices, and chic ambiance. The price tag is definitely worth it!

In an attempt to widen the scope and reach of Taiwanese Cuisine in the Philippines, the team that brought Ramen Nagi is at it again with what is poised to be another hit to Manila's burgeoning food scene. Located North of the Metro, Fat Fook Taiwanese Kitchen offers unique dishes not found in other restaurants. It has the mainstay Xiao Long Bao in a twist everyone loves... Salted Egg and something NEW and definitely repugnant, Stinky Tofu.

Let's breakdown what we had tonight shall we, the Salted Egg Xiao Long Bao was meaty and instead of the usual broth, it has creamy salted egg yolk in it. The taste was subtle and did not have the strong salted egg flavor that I was looking for.

The Chicken Chops was a thing of beauty, it has a perfect crunch and was thick unlike most chops in the market today. The 5-spice powder gives it that unique taste.

The Taiwanese Fried Rice used good quality rice. It was packed with ingredients but sadly did not register any flavor. It was rather bland and lackluster. The only flavor i can taste was from the tiny bits of Chinese sausage. Although the rice paired well with the Chicken Chops.

The Beef Noodles was a winner. The broth was beefy in taste and the "mustasa" mustard greens added that crunch to the dish. The noodles, soft but not too soggy. The beef and tendon was very very tender. Delicious!

The star of the night is the Stinky Tofu. It really is stinky and this is not the tolerable kind of stink, it was repugnant and sickening. The fermentation process causes the strong odor. Apparently, this is a Taiwan staple in street and night markets and not commonly sold in restaurants. So i guess, kudos (?) to Fat Fook for liberating this much maligned dish here in Manila. Nice to try but this is something I would not see myself eating again anytime soon. The taste was just like tofu. Rather tasteless at first but the smell permeates to your other senses affecting your overall chemistry. I felt really queasy after. Recommended for the adventurous.

The desserts are more palate cleansers at this point. Love the strawberry shaved ice because it cooled my mouth after having the tofu.

I went to Taiwan last year to see their annual Lantern Festival but to my surprise, it left a different mark on me. From the Kurubota Sausages in Jiufien, Beef Noodles in Keelung and Stinky Tofu in Shilin market, Taiwan is definitely a food haven!

And with a recent invite to a Looloo rendezvoos (#doubleOforbranding), this is going to be an exciting one! Hello, Fat Fook!

AMBIANCE
The place is located at the Upper Ground Floor of SM North EDSA, if you are not familiar with the mall, they call it the main mall. It has a red and black facade with windows and doors inspired by Chinese architecture. The food preparation area can also be observed from the dining area.

It was well-lit and the interior design was awesome as they used Chinese ceramics to go with the lights. The place is small but not with a feeling of being crowded. I would say the design was well thought and pleasing to my eyes. 127775127775127775127775127775

SERVICE
Well they know that we are part of Looloo rendezvoos, so they are very attentive. And yeah, the cutie waiter is just serving water everytime I finished mine. Unlimited water at its finest! 128514 Well, I guess next time I visit the restaurant, then would definitely observe them more and ask questions as well. 127775127775127775127775127775

FOOD
Alright, this is it! For today's rendezvoos, our host Khae and Ync presented us their best-sellers:

128205Taiwan Style Fried Rice (P 258)
128205Taiwan Beef Noodles (P 258)
128205Fat Fook Chicken Chop
128205Salted Egg Xiao Long Bao (Special or Limited Edition? 128514) (P 138, 5pcs; P 198, 8pcs)
128205Shaved Ice, Mango & Strawberry (P 168/198)
128205SPECIAL MENU: Stinky Tofu (P 198) - FAVORITE
128205BET NAMIN I-TRY: Chilled Taho (P 298)

There are choices that I totally love and there are ones that I'll list as a second choice. Let's start with the loves.

The Taiwan Beef Noodles is just great! The spicyness of the soup, the texture of the noodles and the soft beef makes it special for me. I would say that it made feel that am eating something out of a Taiwanese chef.

Second, would be the Fat Fook Chicken Chop! I always love to use a sauce to dip a fried chicken, but this time, I don't need anything. Well, I know that they prepared it with spices (yeah, was not able to hear what Khae is saying, kasalanan ng Xiao Long Bao!) and it was definitely a good one. It was crispy, it just good for my taste and would definitely love to eat it again.

Third, the Stinky Tofu! Yes, you read it right! This special menu smells really bad. But once you tasted them, it would be a delight. It was just a normal tofu for me, what would make it different would be the smell! 128514 You have to dip it in a sauce so it would taste better! Sorry, the sauce will not help you get rid of the smell!

These are three menu would definitely made feel am really back to the Taiwan. It was such an awesome surprise that the taste is closely done to what you can eat in the streets.

Now to the options. The fried rice tasted a little bland for me. I probably not used to that kind of taste comparing it to a yang chow fried rice of Chinese or chahan of Japanese. I think it would be nice to re-check if that is really how should taste. The xioa long bao is just an okay option, although I tasted the Salted Egg and was perfeclty prepared, it was not as magical (kailangan may Unicorn?) as I expected. Lastly, would be the Shaved Ice. I am not saying it doesn't taste good. I just have to admit that we can get shaved ice anywhere though. There could be other desserts available, but this one is just an okay option.
127775127775127775127775
---
Fat Fook is definitely a restaurant that you need to try out if you are looking to get a taste of authentic Taiwanese food. The servings of food are perfect for 2 people to share and it was on a mid-range budget. The quality of food is well-thought and definitely something new to try for Filipinos. Service wise is on point, I observed that the crew are very attentive and quick in assisting customers. So, forget about the famous xiao long bao first (not totally though!) and get time to eat other delicious offerings from Taiwan.

I hope this year, they make time to open new stores in Makati, BGC and even in the south area.
