Chowing @ The Taipan.

Yesterday's impromptu Friday lunch, the 29th April 2011, was at the Tower Club's Taipan with some friends from LBC Express. We were 6 in all; Enky, Chris, Jeff and I didn't have dress code conforming shirts so had to put on the club's jackets...until we entered our private room anyway.

I think Chris & Enky should have switched jackets.

We didn't have any wine, but we enjoyed several large bottles of Tsingtao beer to go with our many dishes. Aside from some platters of dimsum, we had:

Roast Suckling Pig

Enky attacks the suckling pig (pero walang rice para healthy).

Jeff still hard at work between bites as Paolo digs in.

Peking Duck

Carving the duck for the 1st Way.


JV has at it as Chris hangs his jacket.

Steamed Live Lapu Lapu w/ Fine Soya Sauce
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to photograph it before it was de-boned and portioned.

Kailan in Chinese Wolfberry Broth, a good choice by Chris.

Tower Club Fried Rice

Enky & Jeff.
We also had some Char Kway Teow which was ok, but I forgot to take a photo of it.

Chris reaches for the 2nd Way Peking Duck (minced and wrapped in lettuce) which I also forgot to photograph. I think that's the Char Kway Teow partially visible in the bottom left side of the above photo.

Those of us who had dessert stuck to light, relatively healthy ones. Above is my Almond Jelly with Fruit Cocktail. Some cups of coffee and double espressos later, we called it a lunch.

JV Llamas, Chris Hagedorn, Enky Rey, Jeff Enriquez & Paolo Misa.

Hilarious the pics of Enky making 'subo'...hahaha.

Food looks super good. No wine? Beer?

No, no wine since this was a spur of the moment lunch. We ordered 5 big bottles of Tsingtao but I had only one glass and Jeff did not drink at all. I couldn't really drink anyway since I knew I'd have a big dinner that night.

The dimsum appetizers were so-so and the fried rice a little dry, but the rest of the food was very good. They have a new Chinese-Malaysian chef I think.
