ChowKing is a Filipino restaurant Chain that serves Filipino and Chinese dishes and is well liked by expats here in the UAE. Recently I had been to their JBR branch in Dubai to try out their chef’s special menu.
The JBR branch is at the prime location, right opposite to the Hilton Hotel. There is an option for outdoor seating as well. We chose to sit inside. The interiors are minimal with sofas and tables. They also have a party hall on the first floor.
Coming to the food, First up was the Hot and Sour Soup. This was perfect for the winter sniffles.
Next, we ordered the Dim sum Platter. It had 2 types of dim sums, spring rolls, and crispy Chicken balls. The dimsums were well cooked. My favorite was the crispy spring rolls that came with a sweet chili sauce to dip in.
For the Mains, we had the Fish Manchurian, Thai Red Prawn curry along with Chicken Hakka Noodles. I loved the flavors in the Thai Red Curry.
The Manchurian sauce in the Fish Manchuria was really great and the Fish was very soft and tender.
Hakka Noodles has always been my comfort food. The Hakka Noodles at Chowking tasted just the way I liked it, only a little more oily than usual.
To down the food, we ordered the Iced Tea and Fresh Pineapple Juice.
I was very eager to try out the Halo-Halo, which is one of the famous Philipino desserts. I was very intrigued by all the elements and textures in the dessert. Honestly, I did not like it much.
If you are looking for a budget-friendly Chinese restaurant around JBR, this is the place to go. Do try the Thai Curry and Chicken Hakka Noodles.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Shout out to Salman who helped us in selecting the dishes and for the prompt service.
Surely coming back for more Chinese.
