Authentic Taiwanese Cuisines | Fat Fook Kitchen

Filipinos are becoming more experimental when it comes to different types of dishes. We no longer need to travel abroad just to taste international cookings as new restaurants here are opening up almost every day. And as a certified foodie, I always look up to new dishes to try just like what Fat Fook Kitchen offers.

Upon entering, I felt that I was transported to Taiwan with how they designed the interiors. The motif is red and black which is very Asian, so classy but not too intimidating. The bowls designed on their wall is also part of their trademark.

This Taiwanese restaurant has been in the country for a few years but this was actually my first time to dine in. On their soft opening on their 7th branch in UP Town Center, I’ve got to try some of the authentic Taiwanese recipes. All of the ingredients and taste are the same just like in Taiwan to maintain the original flavor profile of each menu.

Fat Fook Kitchen offers an extensive Taiwanese menu in which their ingredients are freshly imported from Taiwan.

Taiwanese Sausage
My son loved this! The sausage was chewy on the first bite, like Italian sausage. This one also came with fresh sliced garlic on top which I thought were cheese. Since I’m not a fan of it, I just removed it before eating.

Pork Xiao Long Bao
This soup dumping is one of Fat Fook’s best sellers. I loved the warm soup inside together with ground pork, black vinegar, and ginger.

Chicken Chop
Taiwan is famous with the huge chicken chop! This one was deep-friend which turned out to be crunchy when bite.

Spicy Wonton
If you are a fan of dumpling, this is a must try. The flavor was juicy with balance taste of spice. It is composed of shrimp and pork, spicy wonton sauce, chili sauce, and sprinkled with spring onion.

Taiwan Style Fried Noodles
This noodle dish is stir-fried with pork strips and veggies. If you are familiar with Chinese spices, then its flavor is very dominant - sweet yet savory.

String Beans with Minced Pork
I actually liked this dish considering that it is composed mainly of string beans. The flavor wasn’t that bad because I thought that it would taste more of veggies.

Taiwan Fried Rice
This dish is almost similar to a fried rice version of Chinese mixed with Taiwan sausage and scrambled eggs. This was a good pair of the chicken chop.

Sweet and Sour Pork 
I’m a sucker for sweet and sour dishes so this one was my top favorite among all that was served. The meat was tender, flavorful, and balanced out with the sweetness of the pineapple bits.

Shaved Ice Mango and Shaved Ice Chocolate
These desserts are like the Korean version of bingsu. The flavored ice easily melted in the mouth and burst with flavors. I liked the mango than the chocolate one which was sweet and tangy.

Dark Chocolate Milk Tea
For the finale, they let us tried their milk tea. I actually found this sulit because of the huge size. The flavor was too chocolatey with a lesser taste of tea leaves.

Filipinos easily adapt every flavor, like these Taiwanese cuisines. Because of our eagerness to travel, we also love to try a new taste from different countries or regions. I can’t wait to be back and bring my family here!
