Authentic Chinese food I have had in the Philippines. The menu is pretty much the menu I had expected of a Szechuan restaurant! I love Szechuan style Chinese food!

Restaurant is quite shabby but if you don't mind that and a noisy crowd which is a majority of Chinese people, then this the place to go for authentic Szechuan style Chinese food.

Price is on the average of 200php per dish but the serving is worth the price, if not better!

Cheap beef noodle soup, only Php120 good for 2-4! When we got there everyone was practically Chinese, speaking Chinese... And like we were the foreigners 128517. You can judge the authenticity of the food on that alone. The place wasn't much to look at. Not for maarte people, but you'll be surprised by their customer base. 128521

Zaijiang noodles, it's noodles with minced beef, peanuts and the sauce that goes with the noodles.

Never thought I'd find a Sichuan restaurant in Makati, but Panda's Kitchennette fit the typical Chinese roadside restaurant. The restaurant felt authentic and the food was decently good. The people spoke mandarin, but they also have local staff whom speak Tagalog. This hongshao pork (red roasted pork) was fatty, although not the same as shanghai's, but it does the job.

I still wonder why this Szechuan restaurant hasn't been talked about unlike Cronuts or those new modern fine dining restaurants at the fort or the nth ramen house that just opened. I love an adventure and I absolute love spicy Chinese food which only means I adore Szechuan cuisine, which has not really made its mark in this country. Shizhu Fish is tilapia with bones and all in a soup that is part chill oil and part broth with some vegetables that is cabbage and cucumber. Sounds a bit odd but I love it. The best and boldest mapo tofu I've tried. Very garlicky and gingery gangbao chicken with that minty numbing bite of szechuan peppercorns (which could have been minimised a bit). The garlic pork belly reminiscent of a kilawin but with a more powerful punch. The pork intestine noodles using soft cellophane noodles, like a chapchae gone over the edge. Aside from is 'numbing' spiciness, Szechuan cuisine is know for its very bold and pungent flavours. Not for the boring unadventurous eater. I absolutely love this place!

It was E who discovered this hole-in-the-wall Schezuan restaurant in Dela Rosa St. in Makati. Panda's Kitchenette serves spicy Hunan cuisine, similar to the hidden Chinese resto behind Rockwell.

We had the following (clockwise L-R):

- Fish with soup (I forget the name)- we ordered this one by mistake, but I liked it. It was sour, similar to sinigang, and served in a HUGE bowl. Good for 3-4 persons.

-Spicy and Sour Noodles- I loved this! It was exactly like what its name says- spicy and sour. Hotness level is 5/5, and the noodles was chewy. Only downside to this dish is that it's just soup and noodles (with a few thinly sliced cucumbers and nuts) so it feels like there's something lacking. A must-try, nonetheless.

-Chongqing chicken- star of night! Small bits of crispy chicken that are super easy to munch on, with just the right amount of saltiness. Perfect with beer. Good for 2-3. Will definitely go back for this! 128077

-Grilled eggplant- just you average talong, generously topped with ground chili.

-Shredded Potato Salad- E liked this one, but I think we could have done without it. Other than the fact that there were bits of chili in it, this was nothing special. Just a plate of cold shredded potatoes.

128077Pros:
-inexpensive. Our total bill was around P700 (we also had Tsingtao Beer).
-good service and really good spicy food.
-We were the only Filipinos there when we visited. All the other diners were non-Tagalog speaking Chinese, so it's safe to assume they serve authentic stuff here. 128516

128078Cons:
-the entire place has that Schezuan smell which clings to your clothes and hair.
-there was a tiny roach on the wall and when I pointed it out to the servers, they did not do anything about it! 128544
-no parking
