I’ve been holding off blogging about this as I wasn’t sure if I should share with you my new favorite Chinese restaurant that also serves the best fried rice in the metro. My fear was after blogging it I might not be able to get a table anymore, haha! Anyway, my passion for sharing all things good and yummy is stronger than my indulgences so here it is…
I’m talking about Lucky Rainbow (Royal Banquet) Seafood Restaurant. I discovered it last Summer while my family and I were busy going back and forth to Home Depot in Pasong Tamo (the restaurant is beside Mitsubishi and a few buildings away from Home Depot) during our house renovations. I made a mental note of the place so we could go back and try it.
Unfortunately, my memory failed me as I totally forgot about the place the minute our renovation ended haha! Good thing my friends called me for an afternoon of dimsum delight in the new resto. We ordered almost everything (exage!) and ate everything. The food was so yummy that after devouring the lauriat-style meal, no one uttered a word and we were all slumped in our chairs trying to digest what we consumed. I’ve never seen my friends look so full in my life! Food coma ang peg! LOL
Lucky Rainbow offers private rooms with karaoke. Sing, eat and be merry!
It was a good thing that I went with friends the first time, at least na-test drive na for The Eppersons.
Lucky Rainbow’s hits:
Lucky Rainbow Fried Rice – This is the restaurant’s signature fried rice. I’m telling you, you don’t need to order any other rice but this. It’s fried rice with scallops, crabs, assorted veggies in a pool of light creamy pumpkin soup/sauce. I know what you’re you’re thinking: PUMPKIN SOOOUP?!!! Wag kang judgemental! Lasapin ang ebidensya. Ang saraaaap!
Hakaw - They’re the typical steamed shrimp dumplings. They’re good with chili and soy sauce.
Xiao Long Bao – I love the flavor of the ground pork in the dumpling and the soup is tasty. Very good dumplings!
Pork Asado (Grilled Pork with Honey Sauce) – This is the Epperson’s favorite dish! The thinly sliced pork is tender and the glaze is sweet and delicious!
Roast Layer Pork (Macau Style) - Crispy, salty and fatty pork that will leave you wanting for more. Warning: Galaw-galaw baka ma-stroke! LOL
I also recommend the Sweet & Sour Pork and Fried Minced Pork with Baguio Beans. Sorry, no photo as we devoured them before I could whip out my camera.
Tip: If you’re 3-4 people dining, just order Small size as it’s good enough for sharing.
Whenever we bring our 4-year old on Dylan to Lucky Rainbow, they serve the Lucky Rainbow Fried Rice in Mickey Mouse form. Cute!
Since the first time my family and I tried Lucky Rainbow, we’ve been having lunches and dinners there quite often. So often that we’ve memorized the menu! I swear, I should get a VIP Card already from this joint!
We still have to try a lot of the dishes. So far, so yummy and the price is not bad at all.
The service has also improved since the first time I've been to the resto. Good job, guys! Keep it up!
We’re so at home at Lucky Rainbow that my son has no qualms about doing his Kung-Fu moves whenever he hears Chinese music playing. Oh. My. Dylaaan.
Lucky Rainbow’s food gets cute peace signs from Dylan and Aryanna!

Ayan, the secret is out na! Good luck na lang sa amin na makakuha ng table next time! LOL
