Yanzi is a Chinese restaurant founded by the same team of Lido Cocina Tsina, and so we already know that we are in for a treat! We have dined at Lido Cocina Tsina years ago so we really know what we are talking about, and that made us even more excited to try Yanzi too.
Yanzi’s first branch can be found in Banawe, Quezon City, and recently, they actually opened their second branch which is in Marikina. They had a grand opening to celebrate their welcoming diners in Marikina, and we are glad to have been a part of it as we had our dinner there after.
Yanzi’s Marikina branch is a well-lit spacious dining place that is wonderful for family gatherings and for catching up with friends. Surely, you can enjoy exchanging stories with each other while digging into your choice of delicious Yanzi offerings!
Speaking of their food, if you are wondering what to have, then let us share with you what we had the last time we visited their Marikina branch. To start, we reached for their Asado & Mushroom Oat Congee (Php 205) which was undeniably homey and hearty, especially because its warmth is like an embrace, plus it comes with slices of century egg on top.
Making our meal time more comforting, Yanzi also served us their HK Wanton Noodle Soup (Php 305) which was so slurp-worthy! We loved how this had us feeling nostalgic since dimsum and noodle soup have always been a favorite of ours since we were younger.
Next we had more filling choices, which are two of their rice dishes. Their Yanzi Pot Rice (Php 290) certainly adds a tasty and dramatic flair to our table, while their Seafood Baked Rice (Php 495) no doubt had us making yummy noises as this is an indulgent bed of rice in a skillet, loaded with seafood and topped with melted cheese. They were honestly both irresistible, to say the least.
Of course we also made sure to grab a few of Yanzi’s savory viands. Their 8-Spice Ginger Pork (Php 395) as well as their Kung Pao Chicken (Php 415) indeed made our meal more colorful as it gave us that delectable punch that just adds spice to our lives!
Meanwhile, their Braised Pomfret Fish (Php 685) had us hooked as well! To be honest, the fresh fish was not the only one that we liked about this dish, but also, we enjoyed having its glass noodles and meat slices too. This was definitely filling as this goes well with rice too.
For beverage, Yanzi served us two refreshments. Their Buko Shake with Pandan Jelly (Php 175) and Four Seasons Shake (Php 185) were both so lovely! Their coolness and deliciousness did not only quench our thirst, but also revitalized us.
Yanzi surely has a lot more to offer, and we can’t wait for you to try them as well! Know more about the amazing moments and meals you can have with them by checking out their Facebook, Instagram, and Website.
