Last March 10, we celebrated mom's birthday in Red Jade, formerly Mabuhay Palace, the Chinese restaurant in The Manila Hotel. 128522

Since she just got her tooth extracted recently, we opt to get menu items that are not too hard to chew, or those that might hurt her still healing gums. Here's what we got that day:

✅ RED JADE FIVE KINDS COMBINATION
I love their cold cuts platter! 128525 This consists of jellyfish, century egg, lechon Macau, white chicken, and roast duck. Everything was fresh, tasty, and delicious. My favorite is always the jellyfish! Their roast duck and lechon both has crispy skin, and we loved it. 128523

✅ STIR FRIED SCALLOPS WITH EGG WHITE
This was my least favorite among the dishes, but it was not that bad. I just wished it was more flavorful... But this can easily be compensated by adding chili garlic oil to it. 128522

✅ STEAMED LIVE GROUPER
One of the best parts of eating in an authetic Chinese restaurant is the freshness of their seafood! They're usually kept in an aquarium, before they are prepared for cooking. 128525 The meat of the grouper we were served with was succulent, and each part of the fish was cleaned properly. The light soy sauce used was sweet and salty, a perfect match for the steamed lapu-lapu! 128523

✅ BIRTHDAY SEAFOOD NOODLES
I am usually not a big fan of Birthday Noodles because they are generally too oily for my liking, but Red Jade's version is saucy, and has just the right amount of toppings! It's actually the best one I've tasted to date, which is why I can't help it but to reach for a second helping. 128586

✅ STIR-FRIED SLICED LAMB WITH ONIONS
I'm not a big fan of lamb dishes, mainly because I always catch that lingering gamey taste in my mouth. 128542 This one's no different. While the onions were able to cut the gamey scent and taste a bit, I am still not that enticed to lamb dishes. 128586 That's just a personal preference, though!

✅ RED JADE HOMEMADE SALTED DUCK EGG ICE CREAM
This is usually the dessert they serve us with each time we are here. 10024 It's sooo good! The taste of the salted egg is not that overwhelming, and it has a slight similarity to cookies and cream ice cream, with saltd egg bits. This is good -- and is an awesome way to end a sumptuous meal. 127848

Also, I am not sure what the soup is called, but it's like the Shark's Fin soup we used to eat at Chinese restaurants when we were still little. 128525 I also can't seem to find the menu item name for the dish with the broccoli, abalone, and tofu (please see photos) -- but I loved this dish! It's very unique, healthy, and delicious. 128522

Service does not disappoint as well. The waiters are very attentive, and the service is personalized and unique. 128522128156 The ambiance is that of the usual Chinese restaurant, but a bit upscale since it's located inside a hotel. 10024

Full Disclosure: My sister's (soon to be) father-in-law is the Executive Chef of Red Jade. But biases aside, their food is really good and of high quality. Excited to eat their food again on my sister's wedding in less than 2 weeks! 10024128525

Mabuhay Palace is a Chinese restaurant. We ordered Honey Glazed Chicken, Fried Hot Pork Ribs, Pork Siomai, Salted Fried Rice, and Fried Dumplings. While waiting for your order, they will serve chips and tea. Their food were delicious and the prices are definitely worth it.

i went for curiosity AND the 50% off your total bill promo when you pay with a BDO credit card. promo runs until sept 15.

the setting and ambiance is topnotch. imperial themed with soft lights out of a period movie. the walls display mural engravings of scholars and kings. the waitstaff is attentive and accomodating. the service would have been excellent if not for the time you wait to be served your food. a bit long, around half an hour for the soup to arrive. the presentation is classy and servings are not too small. our family enjoyed the seafood fried rice in lotus leaves immensely. this baby is delicious. you can eat this on its own, that is, if you can resist the call of the crispy shrimp glazed with almonds. another fantastic entrée. really liked the shanghai noodles too. present also are some veterans of the chinese table - beef tenderloin, superior stock, braised claypot, garlic stir-fried veggies and stuffed scallops. arriving last is the reason for why we wanted to try mabuhay palace, for its seasonal ice cream creation - sesame and salted duck egg ice cream. an attention grabber, isn't it? it was okay. i wasn't blown away but applause for effort. and i certainly left the restaurant feeling good.

note: if you have senior citizens with you, go ahead and present the cards for even more savings.

Mabuhay Palace. Dine in here again since can't get over the Crispy-fried Shrimp glazed in Almonds and Beef with Honey Pepper Sauce!

Was a bit disappointed though since the presentation and the taste of both was not the same as before. The shrimp was not crunchy enough. Some beefs were tough!

Tried the Cold Cuts Platter. Get the asado first! It was easy to chee and.... delicious.

I guess I expected too much from them since my first experience was exceptional!

P.S. Go look for Bern when you dine. The service we experienced was impeccable! +1 star for that! 11088Yeah, I'm a sucker to good service!

We've been eating quite sometime at Mabuhay Palace since my parents like Chinese foods and the ambience is very tranquil! Don't get me wrong: we love Chinese cuisines because we are Chinese! 128540

I recommend trying the Beef with Black Pepper Sauce. It is tender, VERY tender that needs minimal chewing! Kick-ass taste! This is best paired with the Seafood fried rice in lotus leaves (before, we usually order yang chow fried rice but we thought this is better)

If you love seafood and avoiding meat, highly recommend Deep fried (yeah, unhealthy Haha) prawn in mayonnaise with sliced almonds! What's good is that it doesn't contain too much mayonnaise and you can taste the freshness of the prawn.

Forgot to order Malunggay Ice Cream and Salted Caramel Ice Cream! People were saying it is a must try. 128515
