Chinese Cuisine at Kusina Tsina
The “New Look” – “Reloaded” – Kusina Tsina is back on its feet; tastier, better, and more Chinese food to offer. Being one of the restaurants in Iloilo serving Chinese cuisine for almost a decade, they have some bumps along their way. But nonetheless, they kept their ground. Eugene Chua, the co-owner of the resto, once said that the relaunching is to prove that they are really serious about improving the service – more than just the new color theme, RED. He is back to make Kusina Tsina great again.
When asked what makes their food today better than the previous years, Eugene straightly answered that the taste of the food always reflects the heart of the cook. Being a cook himself, he knows it well. He cooks because it’s his passion. He cooks because he loves cooking. The rest just follows. Loyal to Chinese cuisine, he created varieties of new menu. The Chinese restaurant is known for its dimsum, roasting and rice toppings. And I lucky to have tasted some of the best sellers and most requested menus.
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #1: Spinach Seafood Soup
The green slimy soup suggests the opposite of how it really tastes. As I tried one sip, every presumption was turned into admiration. It was definitely a must-try menu!
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #2: Beef Brisket Pot
This is really one savory dish. The tenderness of the beef is commendable!
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #3: Fookien Fried Rice
This dish definitely reminded me of a Filipino Fiesta food – Valenciana. I guess that’s how I can describe the experience.
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #4: Birthday Noodles
I’m as curious as you why this one is named as Birthday Noodles. Nonetheless, it was one heck of gastronomic ride for my taste buds!
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #5: Sweet and Sour Pork
I just loved this dish! What else can I say? ^_^
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #6: Yang Chow Fried Rice
There is really a difference on a Yang Chow Fried Rice made by an authentic Chinese restaurant than those that just have it as part of the menu. The difference is that authentic resto does not do a commercialized dish. This one is flavorful for a fried rice!
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #7: Roasting Combo Kusina Tsina
As their flagship menu, I loved the mix of this dish. Need to say more? Try it yourself!
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #8: Chopsuey Fu-Chow Style
I am into vegetables these days so I really love to have this menu. The flavor sips in even to the cuts of vegetables.
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #9: Dimsum Platter
I truly recommend this one – the authentic taste of Dimsum.
Kusina Tsina Chinese Cuisine #10: Buchi
What makes this different is the filling inside – it’s the same filling, taste, and consistency served in mooncakes.
