Craving Chinese food after a tiring bike ride? Order in one of our favorite restaurants in Banawe, Quezon City.
We go to 28 Treasures before the pandemic if we want good Chinese food in a less crowded place. Oh, their lechon macau and dimsum are really good!
We got tired after riding our bikes around Quezon City (no thanks to crazy traffic and bad motorists) and wanted some comforting noodle dishes. Luckily, we passed by Banawe on our way home. To be honest, there are good restaurants around too that we have yet explore and revisit.
“May lock po kayo? Dito niyo na lang ikabit para mas makita niyo ‘yung bikes niyo,” one employee said as he welcomed us (Do you have a lock? Park here so you’ll be able to see your bikes better). They allow bicycles to be locked in their railings and customers can easily check the bicycles through the glass window.
What did we have? Chinese-style birthday noodles and beef wanton noodles.
Two people can share this plate of birthday noodles. It’s possible for three people to consume everything too. But we were too hungry and someone who has a big appetite can actually finish this alone. The savory dish has vegetables, quail eggs and squid balls.
Meanwhile, beef wanton noodles use the thin yao mein. It comes with pechay, two chunks of beef and two pieces of dimsum. It’s good for one. This is a usual favorite when you’re in a Chinese restaurant and we should say that 28 Treasures delivered well.
That was an awesome dinner and we’d go back, hopefully after a bike ride, and order our other favorite Chinese food next time: lechon macau, kikiam, beef broccoli and kuchay.
How was our bicycles? They were fine. We can actually see it from our chairs but it was an extra assurance that the guard secured it well for us. It would be better if there’s proper bike parking but this would do.
