Kirin Chinese Dining specializes in, you guessed it, Chinese dishes, flavors, twists, and surprises. I wasn’t surprised when I saw their menu at Quick Delivery’s website at how many the choices are! And not only that, there’s a whole section dedicated for each of our favorite seafood (Lapu-lapu, Prawns, etc). So there’s really no “SEAFOOD” category on the menu, because each one is its own category. See for yourself (click here).
ABOUT THE DELIVERY
Kirin, with special arrangements with Quick Delivery, doesn’t accept deliveries between 3PM – 6PM. That means you can order before 3PM if you plan to order Kirin for dinner, order before 3PM and request your order to be delivered after 6 so that they can prepare your food ahead of time. Delivery is still with 60-90minutes from 6PM but at least they have your order priority once the gate opens for delivery.
Another thing, if you are outside the city where Kirin is (Bonifacio High – Taguig City), you are charged P250 for delivery fee plus the 10% delivery. How to compute for your final bill, incase you’re curious:
SUM OF ALL ORDERS + 10% of SUM +P250 delivery = FINAL BILL
1000 + 100 + 250 = P1,350
WHAT WE ORDERED
Nothing fancy, we ordered a couple of dishes we know (Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet, and Stir Fried Beef & Broccoli in Oyster Sauce) and 1 that’s new to us (Steamed Spareribs with Taosi).
I wanted to have a photo that has anything “Kirin” in it, like a napkin with logo, or anything at all, but there was nothing. Perhaps that’s something they can improve on in the future. Branding in food packages, even the ones ordered to go, or the ones delivered, is important for brand recognition.
The sweet and a bit salty taste is familiar, yet the texture is new. I’ve never had spareribs served like little dumplings. Mario wasn’t a fan of this dish. I wasn’t that excited but I didn’t hate it either. It was normal and the price is fair so for P98, I think it was a good dish to try. Note though, that because it’s spareribs, each little ball had 1 big bone!
First thing that welcomed me when I opened the package was the unmistakable sweet aroma coming from this dish. It made such an impact on me that made me really want to try it first. I wasn’t disappointed. I LOVE how the fish was so moist inside and how each piece was cut and how big each cut was indicates the size of the fish they used here. These are wonderfully huge and moist fish fillets. The sauce was favoring sour a little bit, than sweet but it works perfectly for the dish. I would love to know how they cook these so I can try it on my own, but I’d be happy to order this dish again from them anytime!
I can taste the freshness of every ingredient on this one. Yes, the beef was thin and the sauce was well seasoned, but what I loved was the fact that there were broccolis everywhere! These are crunchy broccolis, not overcooked and there were so many of them! I think the dish could use some salt but Mario says that it’s ok for him, so I guess it’s just me.
It’s been a while since I’ve had really good luck with the food I’ve tried from restaurants, but this streak of good dishes just means that they know how to cook and they do it well.
