We LOVE Dim Sum! We love it so much that in the past month we probably had it at least once a week. In that span of 4 weeks, we dined at Shang Palace TWICE. Yes, two times in Makati Shangri-La’s authentic Cantonese restaurant.

To know more about this Dim Sum Plus voucher sale, you have to keep on reading this EATSperience of ours, okay?
Dim Sum Plus at Shang Palace – Makati Shangri-La
Shang Palace is such a beautiful place to enjoy some of the best dim sum that Manila has. Definitely not the usual crowded dim sum restaurant. On our own, we had our wedding anniversary date here last June. It was a great time for us to relax, eat, and simply enjoy great food, outstanding service, and this lovely ambiance.
This time around, we were with foodie friends and we got to try more dishes because we sort of had more help. It might be good to dine here with at least a group of four so that you can try more dishes. If we counted correctly, Shang Palace has 45 items on the Dim Sum Plus menu. So, good luck trying to eat it all alone, hehe!

Want some Steamed Chicken Feet with Spicy Black Bean Sauce? The skin and the sauce were on point!
How about some Steamed Pork Ribs with Black Bean Sauce? The pork ribs were so tender and tasty. All we needed was to put it over a hot bowl of white rice. Yum!
Our Baby’s favorite, Steamed Barbecued Pork Buns! Fluffy buns of porky goodness. No extenders right here, just pure barbecued pork awesomeness! Baby Eats approved!
Now, some Deep-fried Spring Rolls! Crunchy spring rolls filled with seafood is always a good idea. Just a little bit of Shang Palace’s XO sauce, and you are good!
One of the best fried dim sum in town, Pan-fried Turnip Cake with XO Sauce! Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The flavor and spice from the XO sauce was extremely addicting!
Another Shang Palace favorite, the Barbecued Pork Pie! Perfectly baked, crispy, and flaky pastry stuffed with tender sliced of Cantonese barbecued pork. This is heaven right here!
Mrs. Eats’ favorite, the Deep-fried Taro Puffs with Diced Scallops! How do you make an already amazing dish better? Well, put a little bit of diced scallops and you’re all set. This fried dim sum has always been at the top of our list when it comes to our dim sum EATSperiences and Shang Palace probably has the tastiest one in town! No sauces needed.

Main Course (one per person)
The already packed Dim Sum Plus menu won’t be complete without the “Plus” or the choice of mains. There are 7 choices to choose from and in this EATSperience we were able to try out 4 of them. That’s why we were saying that the more you are, the more you can try because each person can have one choice of main course.
Hot Prawn Salad! Sweet and savory goodness in every bite.
Sautéed Scallops with Asparagus in XO Sauce. If you want a spicy seafood and vegetable dish after all the filling dim sum, here’s a great main course that you may order!
Sweet and Sour Pork! This is probably the most ordered dish in Cantonese Chinese restaurants. Most likely you’ve already had this hundreds of times and you still love it, right? Well, we still do too and we still love it every single time.
Kung Po Stir-fried Chicken. Sweet and spicy tender pieces of chicken! Best eaten when hot and with a cup of yang chow fried rice.
Now, it’s time for DESSERT!
Almond Soya Jelly with Lychee. After all the savory and filling dim sum and mains, a refreshing dessert was such a delight. Silky smooth almond jelly topped with sweet lychee.
Chilled Mango Purée with Sago and Diced Mango. Of course, the famous and crowd favorite in Cantonese desserts, the chilled mango puree with sago. Made even better by topping it with sweet diced mangoes. Another Baby Eats approved!
A few delightful pieces of hakaw, taro puff, pan-fried turnip cake with XO sauce, barbecued pork pie, and so much more are not so easy pass on, right? With the selection of dim sum, mains and dessert, Shang Palace is indeed a great place for a Cantonese feast. The 5-star service from the staff and the intimate ambiance will surely give you your money’s worth. Do not miss this great deal and head on to Shangri-La Makati from July 28-31 and avail of the Php 868 nett per person voucher sale. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations, ’till next time!
