Wang Fu Cinese Cafe Il Terrazzo

Last Saturday was my first real ‘gala’ of the year.  I went out with some friends to check the famous dishes of WANG FU CHINESE CAFE in Il Terrazzo, Tomas Morato.

I’ve been here once before for a movie conference but last Saturday was all food and just the awesome company of some great friends from the blogging community whom I’ve never seen since last year.  And by ‘last year,’ I mean ‘a couple of weeks’ since 2013 just started hehe.

WANG FU CHINESE CAFE is a Filipino-owned Asian restaurant that combines the concept of traditional Singaporean Hawker Center and Hongkong Tea House that serve well-loved Singaporean and Cantonese comfort food in a modern café.

Wang Fu is taken from the Chinese term which means ‘The House of the Prince.”  But another explanation would be is that one of the owners name is Wang.

The lone branch of Wang Fu Chinese Cafe is owned by partners Lester Pimentel and Ace Wang and it’s being managed by Ms. Freda Co.  Its chic and contemporary interiors are designed for the professionals who need a conducive place for a meeting over lunch, yet not intimidating for someone who heads to the café in flip-flops for a late supper.

Mr. Pimentel said that they have plans for expansions but they are more concern in preserving quality and the authenticity of the taste of their dishes.   Their specialties includes Hainanese Chicken, Cereal Prawns, Mango fish and Barbecue Spare Ribs.

Wang Fu takes pride in a full menu of authentic Chinese cuisine prepared by its head chef from Singapore – CHEF TONG and CHEF ELMAR.  Whether you go for a full meal or opt for a taste of dimsum and noodles Wang Fu is definitely one restaurant that is worth checking out.  Why?  Well, let me show you some of the dishes that really made our Saturday Lunch really great.

I am really not a great fan of Hainanese Chicken but the sauces are so wonderful that I was able to enjoy a plate of rice with this dish.      Their chili sauce is blended just right.

The Soy Chicken according to Mr. Pimentel is prepared differently from the Hainanese Chicken but they are just as tender.

This Sweet and Sour Pork is my personal favorite.  This is the best Sweet and Sour Pork I’ve tasted so far.

Hers’s another Wang Fu dish that is really worth the try.  Cereal Prawn is perfect as an appetizer, snack or as  a main course.  And if you want an alternative to your salad and noodles, try this north Chinese staple hybrid dish – Chili Potato.

Il Terrazzo is a really great place to hang out and Wang Fu Chinese Cafe makes it a more exciting place for a gastronomical adventure with family and friends.  I highly recommend the Crunchy Sweet and Sour Pork and their Kachang – everyone will love it even the kids.

    Wow Milo Godzilla and Kachang look like perfect partner for the summer. I’ve not been to that Cafe but I can munch on those prawns and black pepper beef without any questions. This is a place to check out.

    I have seen this resto in Il Terrazos but never tried it because it is always full, and I thought it would be just another Chinese resto. The Singaporean touch makes it interesting! A lot of the food you featured here look very good.

    I love sweet and sour pork but I’m more curious with Cereal Prawn and Singapore Mango Fish Fillet. The drinks and desserts are enticing as well. How’s the prices, btw? 🙂
