Just last week, I was invited by Kublai Khan's Restaurant a restaurant in Cebu, along with fellow bloggers in Cebu to taste their Mongolian foods. Never tried it before, so I was up for it!
The name Kublai Khan is actually the name of the Mongol emperor that is renowned of its passion for feasting. Then here comes these three (3) entrepreneurs who saw Cebu Philippines as a great market to introduce the Mongolian food and hence, Kublai Khan’s restaurant is born.
Kublai Khan’s restaurant offers you the value for your money, quality Mongolian food and great service. They have these fresh ingredients displayed, and all you have to do is choose which ingredients you wish to be included in your meal.
|Add some sauce!!!|
I can compare the food to the famous Filipino food “pancit”, where its ingredients are some meat (pork or chicken), vegies, spices and of course the noodles. With Kublai Khan’s Mongolian foods, it have a couple of ingredients that are quite similar to pancit but you’ll be able to decide which ingredients you want to be included.
As for me, I let their staff decide and choose for me and told her “I’m not sure, so can you just give me the best that you think you have?” and she took care of it for me. Below, is the photo I got for my dish, it’s not cook yet (by the way) but looks good. She also asked me if I want it in noodles or rice, and since I’m a Filipino (Filipinos love rice), I go for rice!
After all the ingredients, toppings and all. It's kinda messy look actually. And yes, it's not cooked yet, so you can't actually eat it right away. But they do have to cook it of course. Take a look at mine!
Just about 10 to 15 minutes later, and voila!
The taste is good, it’s spicy, sweet, and delicious. Love the liver and squid that the lady put in my dish. If you want me to compare it with Chowking’s Chao Fan, it’s WAY WAY BETTER! It’s somewhat like, a fried rice and pancit in ONE BOWL.
FOOD RATING: 3.5 out of 5 starsIt actually tastes good for me, but since I bring home some (because I cannot finish what they’ve served me) my Mama was able to get the taste of it too. My Mama is a cook and foodie herself, she have been to different places (like Singapore, Malaysia, HongKong – and now you know I’m a travel blogger. I used to travel with her and our Daddy.), so I guess it would be best to leave the food rating to her.
My Mama would like to rate the food stars, and she said "the food is good and better to others, but not that good.". But then again, for me it's worth it for the money.
FOOD PRICE: AFFORDABLEThe meal is really huge for me, I mean. I do eat a lot. I can eat a lot. Actually, that day I didn't even take my lunch yet (because I was in a bit of hurry) and just took a light meal for breakfast but I was just able to finish half of what's in the bowl.
The usual prices they have is Php 90.00 but they also have an EAT ALL YOU CAN (I believe around) Php 200.00 which is SULIT! But they also have dishes around Php 50.00 but I believe the ones around Php 90.00 are the best ones!
