It was the night before Valentine’s and the was mall teeming with shoppers and lovers carrying bouquets of flowers, boxes of cupcakes, heart-shaped balloons, or oversized stuffed toys. And if they weren’t shopping, they were probably there to watch Fifty Shades of Grey. We were part of the latter crowd. :p
Went to Wee Nam Kee first in Glorietta 2 for dinner. Gotta be busog before seeing Mr. Grey kasi baka magutom ako ng todo-todo.
I had the Spinach With Seafood Soup (95php/cup) that tasted really good despite its ugly green thickness sorta reminded me of Slimer from Ghostbusters. Akala ko kasi lumulutang lang na spinach leaves, puréed pala. :p Miko didn’t like his cup of Sichuan Hot and Sour Soup (98php/cup) because it was more sweet than sour. We still prefer the hot and sour soup from Little Asia. Nilabay ko na lang tuloy sa kanin ‘yung soup niya.
Their Pineapple Fried Rice With Pork Floss serves 3-4 people. I don’t know what happened. Naubos namin. Or baka natapon sa floor, hindi namin napansin? LOL
As for the Cantonese Beef Tenderloin With Peas And Carrots, thumbs up for the tender juicy meat. The sweet and sour sauce was okay lang. It was almost as sweet as their hot and sour soup.
Of course, we had WNK’s signature dish, the Steamed Hainanese Yellow Chicken. A small serving (quarter chicken) is 428php. They’re pretty consistent with the taste. Juicy and flavorful! They still have the trifecta of special soy sauce, chili sauce, and pounded ginger.
Ended the meal with the Three Flavor Truffle Buchi (128php). There’s white chocolate, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. Everything was, but we liked the one with dark chocolate custard best. :)
Our Wee Nam Kee dinner was waaaaaay better than the experience of having to watch 50 Shades of BLAH for 2 hours and 10 minutes. It lacked the literal and figurative boldness we were looking for in a movie that deals with passionate love and BDSM. If you haven’t seen 50 Shades yet, I advise you don’t waste your money over cinema tickets. Abanagan mo na lang ang torrent. Ipangkain mo na lang sa labas ang pera. :p
