Has to grab a quick dinner 30 minutes before movie screening time, visited this Taiwanese theme restore. We ordered the following,

Red roast beef noodle (紅燒牛肉麵) PHP 400
This red noodle has tomato based soup giving it it's red color, the soup was not too rich not too sour, just enough hint of tomatoes, herb and spices. Add the beef stock and pieces of beef cubes, plus the noodles that were still firm. We had one order split into two, as shown in the photo. 🙂128075128077

Boiled pork dumplings (原味水餃 ) PHP 190
8 pieces of pork dumplings that was flavorful, the dumpling skin was just right, not too starchy. Best enjoyed dip in soy and venigar sauce 128077128077128077

Service was good and quick, we were able to catch the movie on time,,128079

Finally was able to tried this one. Im not sure if tomato flavor beef noodles was a popular one in taiwan but slice or chunk beef noodles is with medium flavor broth. Was told their bestseller is their red roast so i ordered it, my companion ordered beef mala noodles and 2 dumplings *vegetarian and pork ones on peanut and spicy sauce.

The red roast beef noodles was not bad, it has a light broth taste than the usual beef soup that is popular at taiwan but i think it has a reason why its light and it mifght to give more attention to the tomato flavor. I actually liked it.

Beef Mala soup is really hot. 1 level mala paste was ordered i beleive was it was spicy.

Spicy and peanut flavor dumplings was the real winner here both have their own winner in terms of taste. And you might was to use some of their sauce to add flavor to your noodles soup. Try it out.

Mazendo is a newly opened noodle and dumpling restaurant in S Maison, Pasay. I didn't get the chance to visit when it first opened, and got further delayed after reading so many negative reviews about the restaurant. The day came when I wasn't craving for anything usual for lunch, so we decided to head to Mazendo once and for all.

Mazendo offers Taiwanese noodle soups that are not a common find in Manila (from what I noticed). I've tried Taiwan's tomato and beef noodle soup when I was in Taipei in 2015, and it's what I was expecting from Mazendo.

I ordered their red roast beef noodles, boiled pork dumplings in sesame sauce, and a side order of their youtiao.

|RED ROAST BEEF NOODLES P340
The red roast beef noodles tasted more than fine. I don't know why people have been giving bad reviews about this noodle shop. Is it because the people are not yet prepared for a tomato-based soup? I don't know,. All I know is I liked the fusion of the beef stock and tomato in the soup, and the really tender and mouthwatering pieces of beef. A bowl of this soup is good for sharing. A serving is too huge to finish that I gave up upon eating half of the bowl

|PORK DUMPLINGS IN SESAME SAUCE P155
The boiled pork dumpling is surprisingly good as well. It had some juice inside, which kind of reminded me of the xiao long bao. I ordered the one in sesame sauce (which had a hint of peanut), and I got tired of the taste after the first dumpling. It's safe for me to say that the dumplings in sesame sauce was good, although I preferred it more without, which they offer.

|YOUTIAO P25 (half)
The youtiao was okay. It's a crunchy, fried bread, no more, no less. It's for people who enjoy dipping some bread in their soup. It tasted okay for me, although I would've enjoyed the noodles even without the youtiao.

For those who are planning on ordering the mala noodles with soup, be sure you have a strong tongue for spicy food, because even the biggest spicy food lover in our group wasn't able to handle the heat of this one.

To sum it all up, I had a great time at Mazendo. It's great that my hunger for something new pushed me to try this restaurant out despite all the negative comments. Try it out for yourselves and let me know what you think.

Been waiting for this since last year when they put up that big poster ad of their Beef Noodles 128525.

Upon entering I cannot help but spy on the other table's bowls. I thought it looked a bit light.

127836 Red Roast Beef Noodles 127836
Php 340
I guess I was expecting too much. I do know that Ramen, La Mien, and Beef Noodles are of different classes but man this one is just too thin for my taste. There was a bit of a spicy kick that I think was paprika because it smelled kinda Cajun-ish 9996128513. It was so-so like Chairman Wang's

The noodles were a bit thick for a light broth. Kinda reminds me of Mitsuyado's Tsukemen Noodles.

The Beef though was really on point. Super tender, very savory and generously applied. Loved every bit of it. 128525

128055Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumplings127844
Php 170
Wife said it tasted like Xiao Long Bao in a Gyoza wrapper. I can't help but agree 128514. Indeed the contents were like XLB while the wrapper was thick as Gyoza. I'm guessing the essence is trapped inside because of the good seal of the wrapper. Liked this one as well.

127868Milk Tea9749
Php 100
Pretty standard milk tea. I tried the wifey's glass and I got the urge to order one for myself. It's quite a refreshing escape from all the spices of their dishes. (I also happened to notice that the delivery guy was wearing a Chatime uniform 🤔)

I also got to try a bit of the wifey's order which was the Dry Noodles in Sesame Oil. This one I liked! It was like Dan Dan Mien with the thick peanut sauce it had going. It wasn't actually dry. 128525

I would say that if you are after a good hearty bowl of soup then this is not for you. You would be better off with NS45. But that's just me, it all boils down to personal preference. 9996128513

I have yet to try their stinky tofu and their Mala, though. I didn't get the chance since I'm with the wifey and she doesn't like smelly food. 128514

So excited to see that there's a newly opened Taiwanese restaurant in S Maison. That's why we immediately came here to try it but sorry to say that we didn't like it that much. I find the soup very oily. The Mala beef noodle is not that tasty, just spicy only. Plus the pig's blood is not available thus making the soup lack in flavor. 128542

We also ordered their red roast beef noodle 127836, red roast beef with rice 127858, mapo tofu with rice 127858, fried rice, pan-fried dumpling and dumpling with spicy sauce. They all taste just ok. 128076🏻 But i believe that they could improve it coz they're just on their soft opening 128521
