Other Chinese dishes they recommend are the Chung Hwa Fried Rice (P250), a rice dish made with sweet and chili sauce, fried garlic, sausage, and sliced omelet. Then there's the Salted Egg Yolk Shrimp (P405), a dish made with sauteed shrimp in fermented salted egg, fresh herbs, and spices.
If you're in the mood for Japanese, the X-Bistro Roll and Ebi Tempura are a must-try! The X-Bistro Roll (P395) is a maki roll made with crispy sushi rice, topped with tuna, avocado, and a house special dressing. The Ebi Tempura (P220/3 pieces and P360/6 pieces) is made with deep-fried tiger prawns that are coated with tempura batter.
