Dining | Chowking - SM Dasmarinas

Since two weeks back I've been craving for a bowl of hot chicken mami.  Maybe it was the rainy weather that we are having but nevertheless my taste buds clamored for one.  While I was invited for an opening of a food outlet in SM Dasmarinas, I only had a quick breakfast of cereals and I off went on a bicycle and rode for 22kms to the event.  The rains caught up with me and I was soaked as I didn't stopped riding fearing I would be late for the opening.  Good thing I was ready for the rains as I had a clean set of clothes in tow.  Since I was drenched, I ordered a hot bowl for myself.

I ordered the 5 pc wanton meaty noodles for Php99 I think.  I think it was less pa since I didn't get the softdrink and the accompanying siopao.  I'll tell you why I don't order soft drinks from Chowking as a side note.  Their glasses are not washed well.  Everytime I order softdrinks FROM all branches, the softdrinks have this oily stuff floating on top.  I always ask them to replace it but same thing happens.  Since then I DON'T order these.

Also before my food arrives, I check out how the branch is kept.  Although they are a franchise, they have systems in place, every branch has a different way of implementing them.  Fortunately for this branch, they were very clean.  No oily tables, no slippery floors, no busted lights and best of all, their staff was all smiling.  This experience was awesome and I felt that this day was something good will come out of it and it did.

The noodles were perfect.  Soup was hot, the noodles were not soggy, the wanton siomai was firm and tasty.  After being drenched in rain, the hot soup hit all the right spots.  The one who invited me there said that we had lunch during the event, but still my decision to take the noodle soup from this Chowking Branch was a good one.  Definitely I'll come back to this branch if I will be again in this area.
