I saw this picture as I was checking my backup folder since our HP server died down. It was taken during the visit of the owner of the company, which I am connected, here in Cebu City, Philippines. We had our company lunch out at Choi City Seafood Restaurant. It served as a farewell lunch as our boss was scheduled to fly back to California, United States.
We thought that it was just an ordinary round table but it turned out that the company owner made a reservation in one of the function rooms on the second floor. He, together with our purchasing officer, chose and talked about the food to be ordered in the food menu. The rest of us just waited for the food to be served. But we had our take on the drinks and I chose the Buko Shake just to be different with the rest.
Drinks were first served then followed by soup – the Wonton Chicken Soup. Then everything followed – Rice, Beef Curry, Sweet & Sour Pork, Hot Prawn Salad, and other dishes that I forgot the names. I was busy tasting every dish that the waiters put on the table. I even forgot that I no longer have a gallbladder and I was the last man standing.
The food was superb – tasty and delicious.
Just as we thought that everything was served, the Steamed Lapu-Lapu arrived and was served on the table. What? Some of my office mates were done eating and there was the steamed fish. Yet, the Steamed Lapu-Lapu fish was not spared, what left were the heads and the bones.
Everyone was full as we left the Choi City – Cebu and we even declined the yogurt dessert offered by our boss.
I did not mind if my system would react to Cantonese/Chinese foods that time as I don’t have gallbladder. I was thinking a lunch feast. But at the end of the day, I did not experience any stomach discomfort whatsoever – neither gas pain nor diarrhea. I was able to eat Cantonese/Chinese foods even without gallbladder.
And it was a great eating experience at Choi City Seafood Restaurant, the “Best Chinese Restaurant of the Year 2012” recognized by the Business Achievement and Recognition Award giving body. Choi City Cebu Branch is located at South Arcade, Banilad Town Center, Gov. M. Cuenco Avenue, Banilad, Cebu City – right at the south end of the Banilad overpass.
