Lugang Cafe's Winning Xiao Long Bao Is Now Available for Delivery
And Tuan Tuan's Snow Buns!
(SPOT.ph) Some types of food just never fail to bring people together—and hearty, flavorful Taiwanese cuisine is one of them. Sounds good? Rejoice, because Lugang Cafe has reopened their Glorietta and Robinsons Place Manila branches for takeout and delivery via GrabFood and Foodpanda. They’re open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and if you’re planning to get takeout, they have a grab-and-go policy—you’ll have to call an hour prior so they can prepare your food.
Among the items you can get delivered is their bestselling Steamed Pork Xiao Long Bao (P268/eight pieces), which was our second favorite in our 2017 Top 10 Xiao Long Bao in Manila list. The Three Cup Chicken (P398) is also a winner—it’s full of savory flavors and is as tender as can be. Don’t miss their Beef Tenderloin with Crispy Garlic (P798), which is perfect with lots of rice. And if you prefer a lighter bite, the Steamed Pomfret with Light Soy Sauce (P568) is a simple but satisfying choice. The Robinsons Manila branch also carries Tuan Tuan’s winning Snow Buns (P178/three pieces)—it’s our favorite pork bun in the Metro.
They also carry frozen and ready-to-heat food from their commissary, and some of the dishes you can get are the Taiwanese Stewed Minced Pork (P300), Three Cup Chicken (P520), and Stewed Beef Tendon with Turnip (P580). The commissary also carries tea drinks from The Dessert Kitchen, including the Assam Milk Tea with Pearls (P125/22 ounces) and Peach Fruit Tea (P110/22 ounces). Note that there’s a minimum of P2,000 for delivery, and delivery or pick-up is to be done one to two days later. The selection changes regularly, so check their Facebook page for the latest commissary menu.
Lugang Cafe is a restaurant serving Taiwanese fare from the Bellagio Group of Restaurants. They came to our shores in 2010 and are known not just for their crowd-pleasing food, but also their modern-looking interiors.
