The New Super Bowl of China with New Dishes
With a new logo and a restaurant face lift comes new dishes – only at Super Bowl of China!
The first time I ate at Super Bowl was way back in 2012 at their Glorietta branch (sadly, it is no longer there). All I remember was that the two of us were able to finish an order of Yang Chow Rice that’s said to be good for 3-4 persons. Quoting from that post; “We came to Super Bowl with growling stomachs and we went out with a stomach an inch or two bigger“.
Super Bowl now has a new logo (for those like me who didn’t notice it ). The logo that before looked like a trapezoid is now a bowl.
As part of their launching of the new logo and new restaurant renovations, we (and many more bloggers) were invited to have a look and taste of their new menu items.
New Dishes at Super Bowl of China
To start off our meal, we were served with their Red Bean Milk Tea (PHP 85). It was your usual milk tea but with crushed iced and red beans instead of pearls. Sweet and refreshing especially after the stress of trying to park at SM Megamall. (personal pet peeve: Why is it always a challenge to find a parking space at Megamall?!).
On first glance, I quickly noticed the
deadly spicy topping these innocent looking dumplings had on them. Mala Sauce is very similar to your chili garlic at Siomai food carts and for me, it was a no-brainer to scrape them off for my appetite’s sake. These dumplings were fresh and juicy with a kick (even after scraping the sauce)!
Yummy chicken fillets with mayonnaise and fruit cocktail would be my description of this dish. It was hot, slightly creamy and delicious! I only wish that the chicken would be less hard or maybe reduce the breading? There were a few pieces that were hard to chew but I wouldn’t have second thoughts on ordering this again.
I love beef with broccoli! Oh wait, those doesn’t look like broccoli! It was beef with ampalaya (bitter melon) and it was bitter as how we perceived ampalaya to be. It was great to know that a spoonful of yang chow rice is enough to drown the bitterness and enjoy the tender beef slices.
Similar slices of beef served as a topping for flat noodles. I only ate a little since I had little room left in my tummy.
Can’t decide which dimsum to get? Try the dimsum platter. You have five (5) choices but please let me have my siomai.
Lemon Chicken is considered one of their best sellers and each breaded slice can tell you why especially after you roll it over their signature lemon sauce. It’s great as the breading retains the crunchiness (although a second visit had me wondering why some of the breading wasn’t as crunchy like before).
How about another one of their bestsellers which would be the sweet and sour pork! Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside! More rice please and speaking of rice we have the…
Another signature dish.. their yang chow fried rice (good for two hungry persons). What I like about Yang Chow; it is already a meal by itself considering the amount of meat mixed into it. But why deprive yourself of the other dishes right?
They say that you can always find room for dessert… but try eating all of these dishes (with only the two of you in the table meant for 4-6) and see if you can still say that? I only managed to squeeze in the hot taho (that certainly brings back memories) to my overly bulging tummy.
Super Bowl certainly knows how to keep a happy customer and magically increase their weight.
Disclosure: Super Bowl paid for our meals.
