WHERE IN METRO MANILA: Authentic Northern Chinese cuisine at Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles

It's 6PM and we should find a good dining place. After our Fort Santiago tour, we decided to dine in a Filipino restaurant around Intramuros but we ended up searching for a Chinese restaurant in SM Manila. What?!

I love their SM Manila branch because the service was quick and the receptionists were attentive.

In an area enclosed with glass window, authentic chefs demonstrate their noodle pulling expertise. In Northern China,  hand-pulled noodles are a staple and beef and lamb are the specialty items.

For cold appetizers, Black Fungus with Jellyfish Salad (P80) is one of the regular choices of customers. We ordered 5-in-1 Appetizer Sampler (P240) which has a sliced beef, beef tendon, black fungus with jellyfish, century egg and seasoned carrots. Other cold appetizers included in the menu are Sliced Beef Cold Cuts with Special Beef Sauce  and Beef Tendon Cold Cuts, both at P150.

Pair your noodles with Special Lamb Dumplings (P150) and Pork and Chive Dumplings (P120) and have the seven pieces either steamed or pan-fried as you dip in a special black vinegar sauce.

Braised Beef Dry Noodles (P165) is the usual choice of their customers. Imported US beef cubes mixed together with special herbs and spices are patiently braised inside the pressure cooker until it reaches the right tenderness. You may also try Kanzhu Plain Dry Noodles (P90), Dry Noodles with Fried Scallion in Oil  (P100), Mixed Seafood Dry Noodles (P150), Beef Tendon Dry Noodles (P160) and Yuxiang Eggplant with Minced Pork Dry Noodles (P185).

They have noodle soup priced at P90 to P185. For dimsum, they have Pan Fried Radish Cake (P75). We tried Shrimp Hakaw (P125) and Taosi Spareribs (P90). The X.O Dry Noodles menu features Sliced Beef XO Dry Noodles, Mixed Seafood XO Dry Noodles and Fish Fillet XO Dry Noodles, all priced at P165.

They also offer fried noodles like Mixed Vegetable Fried Noodles (P150) and Mixed Seafood Fried Noodles (P200).

For our main dish, we ordered Kanzhu Braised Beef (P240). Their main dishes are Stir Fried Chinese Sausage with French Beans (P160), Yuxiang Eggplant with Minced Pork (P180), Tang Zhu Pork (P220), Crispy Lemon Chicken (P240), Wok Fried Fragrant Chicken (P240), Ma La Niu Rou (P360), a spicy szechuan beef in hot chili broth, and Ziran Yang Rou (P360).

They offer milk tea in different flavors. We also tried Wok Fried Tofu Salad (P160). For our dessert, we ordered Chilled Green Tea Taho (P65).
