It was my first time to host a Team Aldous dinner at the city of Antipolo (there was another one but it was right up the mountains) and a Chinese restaurant as well. I didn't actually do any research about Fuze before coming here since I like being surprised. When I got there, I was surprised when I found out they were actually a Chinese cuisine. I love Chinese food so I was certainly not let down when I found out.
I have no idea why a lot of people go crazy over shabu shabu style restaurants. When I ate Fuze's Shabu Shabu set, I found out why as it is healthier and it still makes you full. The set contained crab sticks, tofu, squid balls, corn and a lot of vegetables. The first one they served was also my favorite. I was actually eating it while everyone else was finished eating.
When I saw the Broccoli with Oyster Sauce, I thought it had beef cubes in it. I guess this is because I am used to ordering Beef with Broccoli. I love broccoli though and it is indeed best eaten with oyster sauce.
The beef cubes were tender in the Hai Nan Curry Beef Brisket. I loved the sauce too. I also liked the mix of cucumber, bell pepper and onions in it. It is best eaten with rice so if they had a rice topping meal for this one, it would be highly appreciated.
I actually thought the Sweet & Sour Chicken was Pork. I didn't realize it was chicken until I saw the menu. In my opinion, I don't think the chicken went well with the bell peppers and the onions. I thought it would be better if it had corn and carrots instead.
I felt that the Mixed Seafood Noodles had too much sauce in it but that's entirely my opinion as I like my noodles dry. There were a lot of seafood in this one though and that is always a plus.
I would always order Lemon Chicken if it is my first time to dine in a Chinese restaurant. Did Fuze's version impress me? It was alright but I felt that it lacked flavor in it.
I was so used to having four pieces in one serving of Hakaw that I was surprised there were only three pieces here. However, the taste more than made up for it.
