King Bee - Chinese Food invades SM Center Angono

One of my top of mind Chinese Restaurant, serving authentic Chinese cuisine is King Bee.   My family and I are frequent visitors at the Sta. Rosa Branch. We don't mind the never ending queues of guests, just for a taste of our favorite siomai and hacao. 

And so when I heard they finally opened a branch, just  a stone throw away my doorstep (okay, okay, about a kilometer away), I was honestly elated (mamaspeaks' translation: all of sudden hungry).

I felt so lucky to have been invited to it's "Rizal Media and Blogger Friends day".  I was certain, it was going to be a FULL and FILLING day (as in literally)! 

(The mandatory pose, with King Bee himself :P)

King Bee - Chinese Restaurant at SM Center Angono is the latest of the Kind Bee branches to open.  It is located at 2nd floor of SM Center Angono and occupies a huge space enough to seat 150-180 guests.  The kitchen is open and visible through a glass window ~ so you are sure orders are prepared fresh and clean. 


We were served with some of the restaurant's specialty dishes, starting with my favorite ~ dimsum.

We had dimsum galore!
The Chicken Feet (P80) was a favorite with our male blogger friends.  Not my taste though.
My favorite dimsum ever, ANG "hacao" bow (P150)
Pork Siomai (P100) was equally delicious.
If you can't decide which dish to choose, order dimsum, you can never go wrong.

Other dishes served us, included:

Deep Fried Squid with Salt and Pepper (P280)
The squid was soft and easy on the bite, with just the right amount of spiciness from the pepper and the chilly.
King Bee Chicken (Half - P250 / Whole- P520). I had a bite or two of King Bee's chicken, but I am not a chicken fan so I moved immediately to the next  dish.
Pancit Canton (P230) for long life.  This pancit has sauce, which makes it a perfect pancit "pang-ulam".
Sliced Beef with Broccoli (P300)
The beef was tender and juicy as opposed to the crunchy broccoli. I love broccoli, so most of these greenies went straight to my plate (ssshh!)
The Sweet and Sour Pork (P280) was sweet and bit tangy. 
I liked this one too, but not as much as I did my dimsum :P
The ever staple order ~ Yangchow fried rice (P220).

We finished our meal with an Almond Jelly and Lychee (P70).
 It was very good as it washed off the remaining chili off  my tongue.
