Food Trip Friday 024: Going Chinese

In observance of the Holy Week in the Philippines, I am sharing this Chinese dish I and my friends had in one of our meatless lunch dates.

Cold silk tofu with century egg. At first I cringed at the thought of eating chilled, raw tofu (the soft kind) but my curiousity was piqued. I wolfed down one slice of tofu with a bit of  the egg on top, of course, I dipped it first in the vinegar-soy sauce dipping with loads of garlic and chopped red chillies. Ooh-la-la. Tastes heaven.

The tofu dish also went absolutely great with this freshly-made noodles seasoned only with sesame oil, soy sauce and egg. All these and more (fried/steamed dumplings, Peking duck, and a lot more) are available at my favorite Chinese food haunt, the Peking Canteen near Psah Thmey (Central Market), which is just a stone’s throw away from the Sorya Bus station. So if you are looking for incredibly cheap but yummy Chinese food, just go to Peking Canteen. Packed during lunchtime but worth the wait. Satisfaction guaranteed.
