I love Chinese food! I was influenced by my mom to eat Chinese food when I had my vacation in Malaysia years ago. So I was really glad that Zomato invited me for a foodie meetup at Taza De Oro Food Garden in Greenhills. Hello there Taza De Oro Food Garden!
I've never been to this place but it was easy to spot on because its accessible. When I got in, the red theme on the chairs greeted me (chinese na chinese!). We are seated on the biggest round table with a round glass where the food are place so you can turn it around as you pass on the food.
I was the first foodie to arrived so I got a chance to take some pictures.
According to the owner, Ms Jennifer, the full capacity of the place is up to 150 persons. And the place is divided into two parts. The other side is for Shabu-Shabu. They can also cover and cater events.
Taza De Oro Food Garden serves authentic Chinese cuisine, more on the Cantonese Chinese side. But they also serves Taiwan and Singaporean dishes.

They also have a big aquarium for live seafood!

Ms. Jennifer also mentioned that they have this new Homemade Delicacies for pasalubongs. Even a Chinese restaurant should have a Pinoy vibe! They also have frozen to go.
|Say Hi to Ms. Jennifer!|
This is Ms. Jennifer discussing some of the menus to us. Before they served the food, everyone of us are asked what are the drinks that we wanted. There are a wide varieties for drinks!
|This is my order Four Seasons Shake|
I ordered for the Four Seasons Shake. I love the consistency of it and it has bits.
When we saw the RootBeer Float from Ms Rona, some of the bloggers also wanted to order the same thing. He He He.
|Thai Iced Tea with Black Gulaman|
The same as for Macy's Black Gulaman. :)
And here are the food. The first one that was served was the Seafood Spinach Soup. Perfect for a starter before devouring on some of the dishes. It reminds me of my mom who used to do this kind of soup. Very light and tasty and was served hot.

Then the food arrived one by one! I don't know where to look at.
|Mixed Cold Cuts|
This is the Mixed Cold Cuts. It is presently served with fresh vegetables. I love how crispy the vegetables knowing that there are fresh. Somewhat sweet.
Taxa De Oro Rice w/ chinese sauce (the picture is not yet transferred from my Canon camera, lazy :p)
I am a rice person and it was surprising that I was not able to taste this because I am really full with all the dishes. Nakalimutan lang na may rice teh? :p
|Golden Butter Chicken|
Their bestseller is the Golden Butter Chicken. When I first saw it, I thought it was just an ordinary fried chicken. But I was wrong, it was the favorite among the dishes. It was full of flavors. And there was something on the taste that I really like and never tasted before among fried chickens.
|Mixed Seafood Brocolli|
Mixed Seafood Broccoli is consists of crisp brocolli and seafoods like squid and sea cucumber.
The Buttered Lapu-lapu fish fillet is beautifully presented with the mango salsa, white butter sauce and sweet and sour sauce. I love the light and buttery taste on the white sauce. Some of the bloggers said that it is also good when you mixed the two sauce. I also loved the mango salsa because it balances the taste of the Buttered Lapu-lapu fish fillet. The Buttered Lapu-lapu fish fillet is cooked crisp and tasty.

Braised Patatim with 12 pcs. Cuapao is a delight to my eyes. It is best to eat with Cuapao. You will need to fill the Brasied Patatim on to the Cuapao. I was so happy that I tried it. Though I think there is something missing to the Patatim. I am used to Patatim being sweet and this is a little bland on my taste. But I enjoyed eating it with Cuapao as the Cuapao is tasty.

Mixed Vegetable Foo Yong is like an omelette with mixed veggies. A very healthy and really cooked well dish.

The Crispy Pansit Canton was served with a separate sauce but the staff from Taza De Oro poured it on the pancit and I like the looked of it much better. The sauce is seasoned well. I really liked the crispiness of the noodles. It goes well with the sauce.

Just when I thought that we are done on tasting the big servings of the menus. Well it doesn't end there. The desserts are then served. You know me, I am a dessert person. So even if the dessert are plain simple I still love it.
|Halo Halo Turon and Buchi|
Their new dessert is the Halo Halo Turon with fillings of banana, ube and buko. When I first heard it, I said wow. He He He. Yeah I know mababaw lang ang peg. And then there's the crispy buchi with ube fillings.
The Mango Sago with full of mangoes bits and small white sago. It's sweet and sour but its just right. It was also served cold.
It was a fun filled dining experience. The staff are courteous and well knowledgeable about the dishes. I left the place with a happy heart and bursting stomach. I will definitely recommend the place for the people who would like to try authentic Chinese cuisine same as for those who haven't tried yet.
