My family and I ate at Kao-Chi Restaurant located in Quezon City. Like I’ve mentioned before, my family enjoys dining at Chinese restaurants. We have eaten in this restaurant around 2-3 times already. The last time we ate here, I think I heard something like Kao-Chi going through a change in management and my parents commented that their service improved.

Xiao Long Bao
Improved service or not, I will always look forward to eating their xiao long bao. This is one of the best xiao long bao I have ever tasted. Most of the xiao long bao I’ve tried at other places had a weird taste, were too hard or did not have the xiao long bao soup in it. I do not know if that is what it is called but xiao long bao (also known as soup dumpling) have “soup” in it and I find that it is one of the things that make this dimsum so tasty.

Hot And Sour Soup
This is currently my number one favorite Chinese soup! Although I find that their hot and sour soup is standard, I still recommend ordering it, especially if you will choose the same dishes that we ordered. It blended well with the food we ordered.

Garlic Beans
I think it was either called garlic vegetables or garlic beans. I’m not quite sure as to how to judge vegetables since I eat vegetables regularly and this is what I usually eat at home.

Taosi Fish Fillet
Like I mentioned in my Causeway Seafood Restaurant post, you cannot go wrong with ordering taosi fish.

Shanghai Vegetable Rice
Their shanghai vegetable rice tasted well with the food we ordered, especially with the beef.

Black Pepper Beef Tenderloin
The beef was absolutely tender and delicious! This goes into my must-try at Kao-Chi list, but it only ranks second next to xiao long bao, only in my list though.

Black Mushroom With Bamboo Shoots

Sweet And Sour Fish Fillet

Salt And Pepper Spareribs
Not quite sure what this was but I somewhat recall someone ordering spareribs.

My grandma could not stop eating the crispy stuff around the crab.

The noodles tasted okay. Not that it was bad, it was on par with similar Chinese style noodles that I have tried.

Famous Fried Fermented Tofu (Stinky Tofu)
It’s not called stinky tofu for nothing. Whenever this dish is in front of me, I can’t help but pinch my nose. I can never understand why my sister and parents like this dish. I commented once that eating stinky tofu (in generally) makes me feel like I’m eating a toilet and they just laughed. But I guess to each his own.

Not sure what kind of melon this was. They gave us complimentary fruits to end our meal. Like I mentioned before, eating fruits is how I usually end my meal.

I might not have gotten the names of the dishes right since it was my parents who ordered the food. So if you any corrections, feel free to tell me. I would appreciate it. If you are interested, this restaurant is located in E Rodriguez Sr. Ave, Quezon City. It is near the intersection of N.S. Amoranto Sr. St and D. Tuazon.


So the D. Tuazon is now closed but I just found out (courtesy of my sister) that there is another Kao-Chi Restaurant in Binondo. Their address is #817 Masangkay St. Binondo, Manila (Near Salazar St.) and their numbers are (02) 245-8324, (02) 505-0358, 0915-962-8999.
