A Filipino-Chinese friend introduced me to this hole in the wall last Saturday. The place is near Rockwell and easily accessible, but beware - there's no sign! You'll either have to be with someone in the know, or keep an eye out for a lighted "open" sign by the door as well as some chinese lanterns. There's no ambience at all, it's like eating in a cafeteria or someone's home, but the amount of Mainland Chinese people eating here gives you an idea of the food authenticity and quality. Majority of the dishes, judging by the pictures, seem to be from the northern region.

My friends and I ordered 4 dishes to share: hot pot duck, zi-ran beef, sautéed kangkong, boiled dumplings. All four dishes were really good, but I particularly enjoyed the hot pot duck and the boiled dumplings. The hot pot duck was spicy, just the way I liked it, and the meat was quite tender. The boiled dumplings were a generous serving of several pieces (6 or 8), good value for the price at php180. The kangkong was also pretty good, very fresh and light and still crunchy and not limp or overcooked.

Definitely coming back here for more!

You Jie Xiao Chao has never failed to impress and satisfy. True though that they do not meet "service" consistency (i.e. Sometimes giving free appetizers and/or chili sauce, sometimes not). But that is exactly the point of it's charm and magic! It's a house. It's how a Yunan grandmother would feed you. Just sit back, tuck in and love it.

Hole in the wall Chinese resto near Rockwell.

Would recommend the following dishes: Duck hotpot, pig ears, and sauteed potato strips! Really yummy!

To skip: fried eel (with sauce) - Bad decision to order this weird tasting dish. It didn't taste a bit like Unagi!

Traditional and authentic. Okay to try if you want to be more adventurous and want to steer away from your usual safe Chinese resto 128521

If you like Traditional Chinese family cuisine this is the place for you. It's hidden in a residential area and doesn't have any fancy sign or decoration to attract customers but you can find it quite well when you pay a visit and have their food.

Authentic Chinese food. Had the ff:

1. potato strips
2. fried intestine
3. pig ears
4. lamb
5. pechay
6. eggplant
7. chicken kumpao
8. fried shrimp

Most of them are on the spicy side -- similar to that of beijing cuisine. This quaint hole-in-the-wall resto serves refillable plain rice at 20php. As well as the wintermelon and grass jelly canned drinks. Though come prepared with cash as they do not accept credit cards.

You Jie Xiao Chao 游姐小炒

Address: 6404 Camia St., Guadalupe Viejo, Makati City

Who would have thought that this ordinary looking apartment along a serene street in Guadalupe Viejo turns out to be a Chinese restaurant? If one sees it from the outside, there’s no sign or whatsoever that gives a hint that it’s a house transformed into a restaurant. Seems unbelievable for first timers, but once you get to taste their food—ahh. You’ll certainly hop out this place with a happy tummy. Next thing you’ll say will be, “Imma come back!” Try it out one of these days, and don’t forget to tag friends along!

Ambiance ** (2 stars)
Seems like they didn't put much attention on the design of this restaurant. “Feels like home,” these were the words that would describe my impression on this place. Once you get inside you’ll notice that the interiors were so simple. Wooden chairs and tables are arranged neatly. Just a note for those who’ll bring a car, you may park across the restaurant or anywhere along Camia street. Be mindful of peak hours as parking spaces might become hard to find—first come, first served.

Service **** (4 stars)
All the servers in You Jie Xiao Chao are females. Each customer is greeted with a smile by these ladies and are very attentive to anybody’s needs. I noticed that they all wore the same red shirts—perhaps it’s their uniform, and at the same time, as we all know, that for the Chinese, the color red symbolizes happiness. So even in their way of serving their customers, they want to make them feel warmly welcomed. Our food was served shortly after we ordered—just in time our stomachs grumbled.

Food ***** (5 stars)
The food we ordered were the typical Chinese dishes—Yang Zhou Fried Rice, Fried Kang Kong, Pork w/ Sour Bean, Pork w/ Tofu. They have this so called Steamed Fish Head, said to be their specialty dish, which we’ve also ordered. Food tastes great! Once you start eating, added the house-like ambiance, you’ll most probably comment that it tastes like home-cooked. There wasn’t one dish among all that we’ve ordered that I didn’t like.

Price for value *** (3 stars)
Their menu shows a compilation of their specialty dishes arranged similarly to a photo album. As I browsed through it, each and every picture has a price label in it. Price seems reasonable. Good price for great food.

For my overall experience, I’m giving this restaurant **** (4 stars). :)
