Hainanese chicken – Epic

Hainanese chicken - Epic
Half chicken cooked Hainan-style, served with chicken rice, broth, ginger sauce and sambal. 450 PHP

This dish was really good! I don’t think it was that authentic because it didn’t have that beautiful yellow color that most Hainan chicken dishes have, but it was no less tasty. I liked the presentation and the separate bowls of chicken broth. This dish was definitely great for sharing.

Crispy salt and pepper fish – Mercury Lounge

Crispy salt and pepper squid Mercury Lounge

Lightly battered fish served with chopped green onions and a creamy sambal dipping sauce. Part of Chef’s tasting menu. $25 per person
Mercury Lounge, San Francisco

This was my favorite dish of the night. The fish was nicely fried and not oily at all. The rice flour gave the fish strips a light texture and the sambal sauce was a great accompaniment!
