Lucky Noodles


Did you say exercise or extra rice? ~ Anonymous

While Jen and I are figuring out as to where we’re going to have lunch or dinner out, we ended up choosing places where offerings are those that we can’t cook at home, or haven’t tried cooking.

And there are places where we keep coming back not just because the attendants are nice, the place is pretty. The food is both delicious and affordable more importantly.

I discovered Lucky Noodles while I was searching for places with murals. If you have been reading my posts for a while, I have this specific penchant for murals. And Jen has a specific leaning into Chinese food.

And when we’re at Solaire, when famished, our feet lead us to Lucky Noodles. As the attendants politely offered their menu for our perusal, I already knew what I want to get then. I requested for Sweet and sour chicken, and Yang chow rice. Jen had spare ribs and Yang chow rice too. And we opted for the steamed broccoli for sharing.

We were served complimentary prawn chips while waiting for our food to arrive. Jen matched it with a special vinegar.

Mine is savory, a little sweet, there’s something crunchy somewhere, and not to forget mentioning, crazy good, all the things you’ll love about Sweet and sour dishes. It is loaded with the veggies I love. I’ve tried Jen’s spare ribs, it is too tender, it melts in my mouth, however, the 5S (Five S: cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and Szechwan peppercorns, or if it’s not 5S, it is similar to that) kick is too strong for me, though Jen really loved it. 

They politely offered the Hawker, which is one of their Best sellers. A hawker is inspired from the Hawker center or cooked food center that is an open air complex found in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hongkong and the Riau islands in Indonesia housing many stalls that sell a variety of inexpensive food. I see it as similar to Banchetos we found in Ortigas, Cebu, Davao and CDO or from those Sunday markets which I first saw in Makati. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawker_centre

We hoarded sweets from the food court and from The Patisserie and asked the Attendants if we can consume them without the corkage fee. According to them, they allow it as long as they were purchased from within Solaire. Yey!

With all those condiments in front of us, we definitely enjoyed these Asian comfort food, it’s just ironic that we didn’t get noodles. I think we will have noodles next time. =) They have this “Make Your Own Noodle Bowl!”

Lucky Noodles is located at Solaire Resort & Casino, 1 Asean Avenue
Parañaque 1701, Metro Manila. You can call for reservation at: 888-8888

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
