Munching Dim sum at King Chef

Dim sum has always been one of the food you can’t get enough of  till your full. It’s those little flavor bombs which you can fill your mouth one little goodness at a time. For today I was invited by the Great Zcherald Criste and wife Tracy to partake in this feast. Zcheralds the main man for Menaia Studios and is a great fashion photographer.

As my title suggest, we headed over to King Chef Baguio.  There was a particular reason why we did it in the afternoon, they do have a promo which makes the prices a bit affordable. They have a Dim sum Happy hour starting from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM and checking their Facebook page they also have a 2nd Happy hour starting from 8:30 PM to 10:30 PM daily. (please do check their FB page since they do update their promos from time to time. You can check here. )

Where are they located?

Address: 49 Legarda Rd, Baguio, 2600 Benguet
Phone: 0998 548 3308
Hours: 10 AM to 10 PM

Refer to map below in case you are just walking from Burnham Park it is quite near for Baguio standards and if you have time ^_^.

The place is aesthetically nice, very spacious and the chairs relaxing and feels well maintained. The Staff are attentive and friendly.

Me with the big bite and the missing Kuchay

Is it Good? For me its really good. ^_^

Everything is great but my personal favorites are the kuchay and japanese siomai which are really tasty.

And for dessert we had the Almond Fish Gelatin. It had the right amount of sweetness and creaminess and cleanses the palate. It ended the meal on high note for us.
