Oh, Mann!

Nothing beats sharing good food with family. And we found just the right place to do so. Mann Hann serves Chinese-Filipino cuisine in a cool, minimalist ambience. Here are the scrumptious courses we tried:

Beef Brisket Hong Kong Noodles

It's a nice twist to the popular dish. Who would have thought beef brisket can be the main ingredient to a noodle soup?  A steaming bowl of beef and noodles swimming in savory broth topped with chives.

The beef brisket flavor is there but sadly a little bland. The idea is clever and sensible; however, the execution falls a bit short of our expectations.

Price: ₱195.00
Rating: 3.5/5

Sweet & Sour Pork

Crispy, juicy, and tender layers of pork sauteed in a sweet and sour sauce with pineapple chunks, green bell peppers, and red onions.

This colorful dish is very succulent and the burst of flavor goes well with plain white rice. The serving is generous, ready to be enjoyed by the whole family.

Price: ₱260.00
Rating: 4/5
Spicy Squid

Deep-fried squid paired with Chinese bagoong and calamansi. We were confused with the idea of squid being dipped in shrimp paste. It's wee bit overpowering for us so we skipped the dip.

The squid has a proper amount of chewiness (not tough) though we imagine it would have tasted way better with a sweet or sour or creamy sauce on the side (anything other than salt on salt).

Mapo Tofu

Last but definitely not the least, the dish that's been a huge hit to us. Tofu, mushrooms, and ground pork set in a spicy chili and bean-based sauce.

The tofu is perfectly cooked and literally melts in your mouth. The simple components of this dish blend well and together make a high-quality meal. The price is a steal since it can feed at least 5 or more clamoring bellies.

Price: ₱190.00
Rating: 4.5/5

Speaking of clamoring bellies, ours were happy at the end of our lunch. Buuurp!
