Fatfook Kitchen SM North Edsa review

Looking for a legit Taiwanese taste? Fatfook Kitchen in SM North EDSA is offering quality Taiwanese cuisine at a competitive price. This is my third time trying some of their dishes but my first time in their SM North EDSA branch, here's another batch of review for their other must-tries on the menu.


What is Fatfook Kitchen?

'Fa' which means gaining (to increase) and 'Foo' that means prosperity, Fatfook literally means to increase or gain luck for the restaurant itself and to their guests. Fatfook is an authentic Taiwanese restaurant serving some of the popular dishes like the famous Xiao Long Bao, West Lake Soup, and their Milk Tea. Truly, they are bringing you items from the #BestOfTaiwan.


Ambiance


The usual interiors of Fatfook can be seen in this branch. It was just quite hard to find since it is inside SM North EDSA and the mall is pretty big. Their entrance isn't welcoming at all It looks like a secluded place that people wouldn't give a second look if they wanted to dine. However, it is spacious inside. It's just that there is no internet signal in the area which I find difficult to handle especially if you are on the go like me who visits SM North EDSA for events and concerts.

Price

The price range of the dishes mentioned here starts at 108 pesos up until 258 pesos. The restaurant has a service charge too for dine-in guests.


Food

My friend ordered the Noodles with minced pork at 158 pesos, it contains fresh noodles, a bit of sauce, bok choi leaf, and minced pork. It is a very simple yet flavorful dish. One good thing about Fatfook is that they are making Taiwanese dishes affordable to Filipinos yet they still manage to bring the quality to a high standard. The noodles are well-seasoned and the stock used for the noodles is flavorful.


Looking the same as the minced pork in the noodles, the Minced Pork Toppings, gives us a mix of sweet, savory, soy-based flavor. It can be compared to bulgogi's taste but has a stronger savory side than the sweet taste. It is served with a few pieces of yellow radish which is my favorite. 


Probably one of my favorites among the dishes I tried from this restaurant, the Intestines/Oyster Misua (108 pesos) has a rich flavorful taste every sip. Even if it has a small serving, it is just enough if you are planning to partner with rice or dumplings. It has a bit sweetness, sour, and savory taste perfect to eat during rainy days.

Of course, Fatfook experience will never be complete without their milk tea! I am not a super fan of milk tea but Fatfook's balance of sweetness and creaminess in their milk tea is just my style. Plus, the size is really big. My friend and I shared in a single order but still wasn't able to finish it because it is really big. 


Ella's Recommendation

1. I've tried a number of dishes from Fatfook and they are all good. If it is going to be your first time eating here. Don't forget to try their xiao long bao too. 
2. The milk tea here is really good. They have a counter outside where you can also buy milk tea and a few snacks to go.
