While there are a lot of dining places popping around the city, this is probably one of the most looked forward among Cebuanos especially for those who are a fan of Cantonese Cuisine. I am talking about Hai Shin Lou at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu!
Just a little bit of background, the first Hai Shin Lou Seafood King opened its doors to the dining public on December 3, 2003 in Makati, Manila. Since its opening date, it has clearly positioned itself as the most sought after Chinese restaurant with high quality service and delicious healthy dishes among the hearts of Filipino.
Just last month August 9, 2018, Hai Shin Lou Seafood King is proud to share that they finally branched out (for the first time in 15 years) and has landed in no other than the Queen City of the South!
Now I am here as always sharing to you a sneak peek of the place and a glace on some of the dishes that they will be offering to us Cebuanos.
As you enter from the main entrance that says Hai Shin Lou on top, you will be walking along a hallway and end up at a reception area where I assume a receptionist will then accommodate you especially if you have a reservation.
Once confirmed, they will now escort you to your table and on the way, you will pass by this cute wall on the left with bird cages and tea pots displayed. While on your right will see a live display of seafood. You can actually choose one and have it cooked for you. Talk about freshness!
The whole place can accommodate around 200 persons with 9 private rooms. A new chic celebration location perfect for your milestone, yes?
As for the food, Hai Shin Lou will be headed by Executive Chef King Kwong Chan, one of the best Roasting Chefs from Hong Kong. Together with him are two other chefs from Hong Kong, Chinese Dimsum Chef Moon Chau Lo and Chinese Wok Chef Raymond Hui.
Now time to dig in! I remember how excited I was during that time. Hope you already ate while you’re reading this because it will surely make you hungry! haha
