Restaurant Review: Superbowl of China

Published on September 24, 2013

I usually do the craving and Boyet takes care of making sure that my craving is addressed. I usually ask for the same things over and over again. If it’s not a big, fat, juicy burger, it’s probably a hefty slice of meaty pizza. But one weekend, my husband suddenly craved for Yang Chow fried rice. I tried to talk him out of it because I was already getting tired of eating Chinese food. Our first choice was Mr. Choi Kitchen. But Papa just celebrated his birthday the week before at Mr. Choi Kitchen. We eyed another Chinese restaurant and decided to pay it another visit.

Every time we go to Superbowl of China, the complimentary prawn crackers they serve to us are immediately wiped off. It’s just good as it is, but it also goes well with vinegar!

It was a rainy weekend so we decided to jumpstart our meal with a bowl of hot wanton soup. When I go to a Chinese restaurant, I usually get wanton soup. It’s dual purpose. I’ll have a soup to warm up my stomach, and I’ll have my favorite dumplings which go with it.

The waitress initially told us that the soup has two pieces of dumplings. We were surprised when our bowl has four. Nyaha! Most of the wanton soups I’ve tried before were on the savory side. But Super Bowl’s version has a hint of sweetness in it.

Our visit at Super Bowl would not be complete without the Yang Chow Fried Rice. My husband risked battling my moods and insisted on having lunch at a Chinese restaurant for this bright yellow fried rice. Served with different kinds of meat, seafood and vegetables, this alone is good enough on its own.

Even if the Yang Chow Fried Rice could stand on its own, Boyet and I still opted to get two more dishes. I told Boyet that we should just get one. But he insisted that he is really hungry and that the serving might not be enough for both of us.

We got the regular serving of Lechon Macau. If I remember it correctly, the larger serving costs PHP290. I think Boyet made a good call because the Lechon Macau serving is a bit too small for our very big appetite. Hihi!

Boyet liked the Lechon Macau. It was actually good, but the dish didn’t blow me away. The sauce is also too strong for my taste.

We also got to try their Lemon Chicken. When it comes to the taste, I would not argue that this dish tastes good. Some restaurants serve Lemon Chicken that hurts my teeth because of too much acidity. Super Bowl has managed to balance out all the flavors - sweet, sour and tangy.

Unfortunately, the chicken is a bit too oily for my liking. I am used to smaller chunks of chicken on my Lemon Chicken, but this one was served differently. They probably deep fried a large portion of the chicken breast then sliced it. The sauce didn’t stick to most parts of the chicken. Plus, the breading was just so thick I could taste the flour more than the lemon. :|
