When looking for the best hot and sour soup, nothing beats the version of Coral Garden. The main branch is a small restaurant along the southern stretch of Banawe Avenue just in front of Del Mundo Medical Center.
I usually go here to get my fill of their Coral Soup which is a thick sour and spicy mixture of egg, mushroom, ground pork, tofu, tengang daga and other surprises. Many Chinese restaurants have theirs as either too spicy, too sour, too salty but Coral Garden’s is just pure perfection.
For a filling snack, the best pairing for this is with their cuapao which is a thick block of marinated pork mixed with herbs (don’t know if there’s cilantro in there) and sweet peanut sauce sandwiched in soft mantou bread.
I also go for their almond shake which, I don’t think, any other restaurant can match.
Getting hungry again..
