MANILA, Philippines – Lugang Cafe may have become a constant since it opened, but they’re shaking things up by adding new things to the menu this February.
The restaurant removed some of the less popular dishes to make room for these new seafood and vegetable entrees, perfect for sharing with your family and friends.
We dropped by Lugang’s SM Aura branch on Wednesday, February 17 to taste the new items:
Here’s a look at what we tried:
Steamed egg custard with clams (P260)
This dish was a favorite at our table – clams steamed into a soft egg custard, whose texture is reminiscent of Japanese chawanmushi (savory egg custard).
Steamed shrimp with garlic (P490)
This row of shrimp in a light soy sauce would be great to have with rice and shared with friends.
Taiwanese fried chicken drumstick set (P190)
Don’t let the name fool you – this chicken dish isn’t made of chicken legs and the meat is actually boneless. Still, the has a rich spicy flavor, perfectly complemented by the pickles that come with it.
Three cup squid (P290)
One of Lugang’s specialties is their three cup chicken, made with one cup of soy sauce, a cup of sesame oil, and a cup of rice wine. From now on, they’re offering the same dish but cooked with seafood instead.
Their three cup squid is has all the flavor of the chicken version but with tender squid instead.
Three cup shrimp (P460)
You can also get a shrimp three cup dish, where the aromatic flavors of the three cup sauce have seeped into the shells and mixed in with the sweetness of the meat.
Fried rice with salted fish and diced chicken (P280)
No Chinese meal is complete without rice, and Lugang has a new version of fried rice for you to try. The salted fish in this dish gives a subtle flavor, while the chicken balances it out.
Beef belly in sour broth (P360)
Lugang’s beef belly in sour broth is like the Taiwanese version of sinigang. This rich, comforting beef broth comes with noodles, mushrooms, and veggies, and is perfect for a chilly day.
Napa cabbage with garlic and vermicelli (P280)
If you’re up for dry noodles, the napa cabbage with garlic and vermicelli is a light but flavorful choice.
Napa cabbage with peppers and pork (P280)
Lugang is also offering napa cabbage with pork, perfect for pairing with your fried rice.
