No, this time it’s not the Tsim Sha Tsui district found in Hongkong (which I miss but will soon be in again come March 2011! Well, that’s another post :D) We’re talking about the Tsim Sha Tsui restaurant found at The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu. Tsim Sha Tsui serves, quite obviously, Chinese cuisine. This Cebu restaurant is also known for their Dimsum Conveyor Buffet (an eat-all-you-can thingie for about P350.00 per head).
Tsim Sha Tsui (pronounced as sim-shya-tswoy, according to Hongkies or Hongkong locals) is found at the second level of the Ayala Mall Cebu The Terraces.
Anyways, on my first day in Cebu City, my brother and I had lunch at TST. And you know what this means. Food shots!
The Hakao / Ha Kao / Hakaw or shrimp dumplings were juicy and delicious!
And of course, my favorite – quail egg siomai: (no dimsum fest will ever be complete without this!)
My verdict? Food’s okay. I especially liked the shrimp dumplings. As expected, the prices are a bit higher compared to other dimsum houses but then again you know what they say…you also pay for the location and ambiance.
I like the interiors of TST (if I’m not mistaken, it was designed by a homegrown, popular designer) but it may not be the right place for someone who wants to just hang and “not be seen,” if you know what I mean. Tsim Sha Tsui Ayala Cebu‘s interiors are bright, cheery and clean so it might be difficult to use the incognito card here.
