I am a Kapuso more than I am a Kapamilya or Kapatid(?). So someone has to tell me about the goings on in ABS-CBN else I remain ignorant forever.
Years back, my sisters who were avid viewers of Be Careful with My Heart planned lunch in Wang Fu in the Morato area. I think it was a weekday, so I declined. WF they said is owned by Richard Yap. I knew who he was, having watch maybe 3 episodes of the series before I became uncomfortable with the plot. I don’t remember getting feedback re the quality of the food served.
Yesterday, okay, since two days ago, I’ve been wanting to eat Chinese lumpia and googled; alas, I failed to find any that delivered anything like it, just lumpia ubod or lumpia frito.
Then I saw that WF was in UP Town Center and thought they might have the dish. They didn’t. So I dismissed the thought of ordering from them.
As I have been under house arrest (because of my pressure sores), we haven’t been going out of late as a family. Not even on weekends. Instead, we’ve been ordering food, either c/o City Delivery, Quick Delivery, McDo, Jollibee, or HHA/HHB. THing is, if I order from UP Town Center, I pay double what McDO charges: P80 for roundtrip fare via tricycle. But I have no choice.
Going back to WF, despite the negative reviews online, I decided to take a chance. Son ordered cereal prawns, I ordered beef with black pepper, for husband sweet and sour pork, scallop rice, and hakaw. Along the way, the girl who took my order suggested salted egg chicken. I thought I ordered that too but when HHB came back from WF, it was not among the dishes nor the receipt. So I didn’t bother to complain.
Cereal prawns – son liked it very much
beef with black pepper – how did they make it so tender
sweet and sour pork set meal came with two rounds of tofu topped with pork floss – not that good
hakaw – good
scallop rice – didn’t notice the scallops at all.
Will we order from WF again? Yes!
Now the search goes on for CHinese lumpia.
