Synesthesia also exists when you eat. Seeing how delicate and careful food is prepared definitely adds extra spice to the appetite. That’s why Chefs Gallery’s delicious hand-pulled noodles seemed to be a lot more special for us when they showed the beautiful art of making it before serving us our awesome treat.

This March, Manila Hotel brought the people behind the famous Chefs Gallery from the heart of Sydney to show Mabuhay Palace diners a multi-sensory Chinese experience. Gourmet master Executive Chef Wing, a highly accomplished individual in Cantonese, Szechuan, Yangtse River and Shandong cuisine, showed how four types of hand-pulled noodles are made.

Together with the executive chef, Wing Head Chef Sam Du — known for his native Chinese and Pan-Asian culinary innovations — led the team from Sydney-based Chefs Gallery at the Manila Hotel in serving popular dishes in their menu.

What made this dish fun is the combination of pork fillet and pork floss, which are paired with a thick-crusted fried mantou. We could say that this would go well with a glass of beer.

The dressing is the bomb. We cannot stress enough how the right amount of spicyness complements the saltiness of the Wagyu beef.

Our love for tofu has taken to the next level, thanks to this dish. On the outside, the tofu’s texture is strong and crunchy.  But on the inside, it’s sooooo soft and fluffy! Yes, the contrast, people – that’s what we loved most about this dish.

We are big fans of wontons so we know what we look for in a dimsum. This one surprisingly made the cut to our top 10 faves. You might think that it’s just prawn and pork, but wait ‘til you try it with the Shanghainese Sauce. Seriously though, what is that sauce made of? So yum!

This is definitely the star of the night. There’s no question about how we love seafood you know, but the moment we tried the handmade noodles, we totally forgot about how we can’t say no to prawns and calamari. The noodles are majestically sweet and light. So good it made us ask for round two.
