Get Your Chinese-Food Fix From These Restaurants That Deliver
Everything from stellar dim sum to flavorful noodles and roasted meats.
(SPOT.ph) Chinese is one of those cuisines that has a special place in our hearts. It’s reliably tasty, appealing to our penchant for food with lots of flavor. It’s also incredibly diverse, ranging from the haute cuisine of the Cantonese to the complex-tasting (and often spicy) dishes of Szechuan cuisine. If you’ve been missing getting your Chinese food fix, turn to these restaurants that deliver or have options for delivery, so you can enjoy these Chinese dishes right from home.

Tuan Tuan’s take on pork buns are in a whole league of their own. They’re our favorite in the Metro, thanks to their crunchy, mildly sweet exterior and tender meat inside. The Chinese brasserie now delivers the famous Snow Buns (P178/three pieces)—plus other dim sum like their Steamed Shrimp and Pork Siu Mai (P158), and mains like their Original Halibut Noodle Soup (P448) and Chicken Fillet Curry (P388)—from their Power Plant Mall and UP Town Center branches.
For orders, contact 8820-5864 or 0906-433-2196 (Power Plant Mall), or 8426-6583 or 0916-242-2019 (UP Town Center). You can also find them on GrabFood or Foodpanda. For more information, check out TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie’s Facebook page.
Sincerity Café and Restaurant

Lido Cocina Tsina
There’s something especially appealing about Chinese roasts—perhaps it’s the way they balance sweet and savory together, or their especially succulent texture. Nobody does asado quite like Lido Cocina Tsina, and they deliver their special dishes from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Their famous Pugon-Roasted Asado (P424) is especially tender thanks to being slow-roasted in a brick oven using firewood. Their pancit dishes—such as the Pancit Canton Guisado (P292) or Chami Special (P292)—are also full-on with flavors and do not skimp on the toppings.
Tim Ho Wan
Known as the world's most inexpensive Michelin-starred restaurant and hailing from Hong Kong, Tim Ho Wan has reopened their SM Megamall, Glorietta, and SM Mall of Asia branches for pickup, takeout, and delivery. Their prawn dumplings (P160/four pieces) topped our list of the best hakaw in Manila. Or try their flaky-yet-soft Baked Buns with BBQ Pork (P170/three pieces)—the fourth on our 2015 list of the Top 10 Pork Buns in Manila—or other eats like the Beef Ball with Beancurd Skin (P135) and Tofu with Pork Floss (P145).
