It’s not my first time here, but honestly I only came because GW wants me to wait 20mins for a chicken and JB is strictly serving ribs only. 128527
My dish was supposedly salt & pepper ribs, but it may as well be sweet & sour pork. It’s not bad.
The side order of noodles is my “I knew I shouldn’t have ordered this” kind of experience. Bad after taste - but thats just me.

I get Chinese cravings once in awhile. Maybe because I am partly one. Does that makes sense to you? I got Yumchee for this, right at the comfort of my home.

For my main dish, I got Adobo Chinese style. I was able to survive this tasty fix without rice. I would have enjoyed it better if it had less fat.

The Spinach Dumpling was bland to its core. Yes you needed soy sauce and spice separately to make it edible. The Shrimp Tofu on the other hand was special. Its sweet and sour dip was just a plus to an already well made dimsum.

Next stop here could be their list of congee and noodle selections.

Second visit justified my initial review but also took the liberty to try new things. I enjoyed most their boldly tasting Black Pepper Beef. Pepperish delicious. Best paired with steamy white rice.

Another worth trying is their Ice Kachang type of dessert kf fine ice, milk and preserved fruits. I suggest sweet mango with sour strawberries.

Open 24 hours on weekdays and from 8 am to 12 midnight on weekends, Yumchee offers guests fast and affordable Chinese food.

I ordered the Beef Brisket Noodle Soup (P159) with Wonton (additional P30) and a Specialty Drink (additional P50). My drink was the Milk Tea with Jelly. The noodles were well done and tender. The chunks of chewy beef tasted of star anise and pepper. The broth was savory, tasting like the beef with pepper, salt, and star anise. Full of flavor.

The Milk Tea is cool and refreshing after such a rich noodle soup. The jelly cubes offer a nice chewy experience with each sip. Worth trying with a meal.

Most of my husband's friends live and work in the BGC area so it's where we usually meet up for dinner or drinks. Last week though we were a bit early so we decided to get a 'snack' at Bonifacio stopover.
Saw yumchee and was really surprised at how affordable their prices were! I got this delicious Taiwanese style shaved ice (with two fruit choices!) for only ₱78! Hubby enjoyed his congee for only ₱150 I think! Super affordable without sacrificing quality! 128077

Mango Shaved Ice

Very affordable at 78 pesos. Great value for money. So refreshing. The mangoes were sweet.

After a night walk in the area, my friends and I decided to have a late dinner or merienda for some, at Bonifacio Stopover. We had tons of choices to eat but our budget was to be considered as well as the food preferences that we would all agree on 128517 #anghirapkasiandaminamin

We all decided to get Chinese, thinking that they have some healthy vegetable dishes. G was disappointed that they only served bokchoy 128533

I tried 3 different dimsums

🔸 Cua Pao (85php) 1108811088
I like the bun but the filling had a weird taste, matamis sa toppings pero yung loob parang maasim na ewan, turns out it had ginger and onions? 128533

🔸 Shrimp Dumpling/Hakaw (85php) 110881108811088
Taste is okay. It's shrimp e! 9786

🔸 Beancurd Dumpling (85php) 11088110881108811088

I think I could come back for their beancurd and milk teas 128522

Beef brisket meal set by Yumchee: MEH as a meal. But a huge YEY for the brisket as a dish.

Iced Milk Tea with pearls by Yumchee: YEY.

Everything was brightly lit, there were a lot of whites, clean lines all around. For a Chinese restaurant, it was an awkwardly clinical space, making you feel like you were walking into a hospital. There was something unsettlingly neat about the place. We ate at around 9 in the evening so the place was empty. I don't know how crowded it can get during peak service hours but I have my doubts.

The brisket was good. The beef cubes held their shape but shreded easily into tasty strings of meat at the slightest pull. The sauce was flavorful, as any stew should be, and had just the right amount of sweetness (and aromatics, most apparent is the star anise). It was really good.

Unfortunately, the soup was tasteless and the fried rice was dry and lacked seasoning. It was like eating hospital food (dahil ba katabi niya ang St. Lukes?). I ordered an extra cup of plain rice so I can enjoy the brisket on its own, instead. But the white rice tasted and smelled funny. It wasn't like panis, it was more like it was stored too long. Gets? The rice tasted "luma" (stale). For the rice and soup, you'd have a better chance at your neighborhood Pares house like Cocoy's. Maybe Yumchee's brisket and noodle pairing would be better.

I ended my meal with Yumchee's Iced Milk Tea blend with pearls. It was creamy and the black sago were fun to chew on.

Shaved Ice @ 78Php

It's been awhile since I dined here at Yumchee and if I remember it right, I was complaining about their sour mango. I invited 3 officemates to have shaved ice for dessert. We ordered the mango and strawberry toppings. 128522

The presentation can be improved. I find it not so appealing especially the strawberry because it doesn't look fresh. It looks like ewan!

The diced mango is sweet this time. I liked it a lot! The shaved ice is not as fine as Hobing's but it's okay. This is still a really good dessert for a sunny afternoon!

Happy ako leaving the restaurant. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it!

Ordered food to go at Yumchee. Service was quick as expected, even with a crowd they still deliver good service. Located at BGC Stopover, they mainly cater to the office crowd and occassional hospital "bantay" such as myself, lost in BGC. For 199pesos you get to choose one main dish and side. For the side I ordered the vegetable rice and soup. The Salt Pepper Spareribs was my main dish. I like that their servings can be shared by two light eaters. Add an additional dimsum and your good to go. The pork was lightly crisped with a salty glaze. It was a little oily though. Overall it is a great lunch fare for those who want it quick and satisfying. Recommended.

Shaved ice! You can choose two types of toppings but I opt to have one - fresh mango. Some mangoes were sour! I could have given this a 5-star rating if the mangoes were sweet. Try this! A perfect alternative to your usual halo-halo.

I've had the pleasure of having lunch and takeout here on several occasions since its right across the office, and i gotta say that the food here is pretty decent for a local Chinese brand! Reminds me of casual Chinese dining in HK in places like Tsui Wah. Bottomline, the food here is good and the real deal!

Its right smack in the middle of your Chowking's/Hap Chan's and the fancy ones like Gloria Maris et al... in terms of taste and price. Its not cheap Chinese, but it wont burn a hole in your wallet either. And at least you can expect something tastier and of better quality too than most of our Chinese fast food chains. 128077

My favorites off the bat would be their black pepper beef, congee, shrimp & beancurd roll, and the shaved ice dessert! 128076

Went back to Yumchee recently with the husband in tow.

During this visit, I got Beef Brisket plus veggie fried rice and soup. No drink this time but I got an extra order of Shrimp Dumpling or Hakaw.

My choice of meet was another hit! Chunks of tender beef that were flavorful, salty with each meat strand soaking in the brisket sauce. Also loved the trimmings of fat that made each chunk more tasty! Their Shrimp Dumplings were good too. Perfectly cooked, the wrap had the right thickness and the shrimp inside was succulent and juicy. Didn't feel like fast food dining at all!

Husband got the Salt and Pepper Spareribs which was served with some vinegar. Loved the crunchy breading, the saltiness and the tender meat. He was more than satisfied with his meal. He also paired his meat with veggie fried rice and soup.

Service was fast and the area was overall clean. Staff were friendly as well and if they see that you're lost when ordering, obviously a newbie, they would willingly help you take your pick.

Definitely one of the best fast food places in the Metro providing quality Chinese food at very affordable prices, I will be back Yumchee!

Been seeing Yumchee in BGC stopover but since it’s always Hobing or Starbucks that I target when I go there, I haven’t given it much attention. Until one night, I got so hungry and I didn’t think that Bingsu nor coffee will help. I went to Yumchee. Clueless on what they offer, I needed to check their menu board for a while first before braving the counter.

Yumchee is a Chinese fast food place that has a straight forward menu. For 199 you’ll get to choose your viand plus a side – steamed rice + soup, vegetable fried rice + soup, stir-fried noodles plus soup or seasonal veggies. Add 50php and you’ll get to choose a specialty drink too.

For my first time, I got Orange Chicken with Vegetable Fried Rice and Soup then added Iced Milk Tea as my drink. For 249Php, I got a really good meal!

The serving was just right. Not too little but not a lot as well. What I liked though was the quality of food. You’ll think Chowking if I say Chinese fast food but Yumchee is a far cry. The Orange Chicken was good – chunks of tender chicken fillet coated with a crunchy batter and smothered generously with a thick orange glace sauce. It was Chinese restaurant quality! I also loved the Vegetable Fried Rice since it was like Yangchow without any meat or seafood. The soup was of good quality too. Not the typical clear salted soup that you’ll get for free. It’s thick, tasty and had egg in it. The milk tea tasted like Chowking’s Nai Cha!

Service was fast and the area was overall clean. I shared this experience with the husband and promised to take him here! Will try their Dimsum next time.

4pm appointment rescheduled to Friday.  Since my mind was programmed to go home a lil late than usual, i decided to swing by Bonifacio Stopover for some grub. 

Then i saw Yumchee.  You know the feeling wherein images start showing up in your head? Dunno the term but I always see this in movies (think Limitless,  after Bradley Cooper takes the magic pills).  I swear,  i saw Abe C 's review in my head. 

An imaginary force pulled my weary feet to Yumchee's direction,  all i remember is that i was standing in front of the counter.  I ordered salt and pepper spareribs with fried rice and soup.  Customers can pick one main dish and one side for php 199,  add php 50 for a medium sized drink.  Reasonably priced,  yes? 

The service was lightning fast.  No wait time at all.  Their fried rice is similar to Yang Chow.  Light yellow hue with scrambled eggs and chopped veggies.  The spareribs is seasoned well,  deep fried and sautéed with chopped chillies.  The meat is tender and flavorful.  The only comment i have about this dish is that - there wasn't enough chillies!  Personal preference as i like spicy food. 

I was satisfied with my meal.  I even ordered some dimsum for takeaway.  I will go back to try some of their noodle dishes.

Just ordered their Pork Shrimp Siomai and Shrimp Dumpling (hakaw) over late lunch today. I love my hood. Right, Reich T?

Pork Siomai - solid 4/5. Soft, good size and taste. As expected. 4 pieces

Hakaw - 4.5/5 good size and again, it met my expectations. 3 pieces

At P85@, it ain't bad, quality meets the price. That's always a good intersection for restaurant food.

Will try their other offerings next time. They have set meals for P199, with a choice of main dish and side dish...

8 choices of main dish:
Chicken Chop
Orange Chicken
Sweet & Sour Pork
Chinese Adobo
Salt N Pepper Spareribs, add P20
Beef Brisket, add P20
Fish Fillet with tofu

then you pick the side whether it's rice and soup, fried rice and soup, fried noodles and soup or vegetables. Nice deal.

With congee and noodle soup option for P159

They've got specialty drinks that's also Chinese related and other snacks that also either sweet or savory.

Ambience is clean, modern. Very casual dining. In fact, it's counter order like a typical fast food. Quick snack or meals work here, especially if you love Chinese food like I do.
