Red Big Bowl

21 Jan

Chinese food definitely is one of Pinoys’ favorites.

Months ago, I  noticed a new Chinese resto near my place, but never had a chance to check it out. This new resto I’m writing about is the RED BIG BOWL, just across Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Sta. Mesa, Manila.

Last 2 Jan 2011, my boyfriend and I finally decided to try out their food. I’m pretty impressed with the place. The resto is well-lighted and well-ventilated. It is also spacious and cozy, plus the seats (couch) are really comfortable.

With regard to the food we ordered, they were really good. Even their house blend iced tea was delicious! 🙂

The next weekend, 8 Jan 2011, my whole family went to Red Big Bowl for our mom’s surprise birthday dinner. Everyone loved the food we ordered. The servings were big, too! 🙂

Birthday noodles (Php190) --- sorry bawas na

Beef with Onions (Ph260), Lemon Chicken (Php230), Yang Chow (Php170), 12 pcs. Lumpiang Shanghai (Php 170)

Crabmeat and Bird's Nest Soup with quail eggs (Php200)

Sweet and Sour Pork (Php240)

Sweet and Sour Pork, Birthday Noodles, and RBB Seafood Fried Rice (Php170)

Sorry for the pictures. They are not blog-worthy. 😛 I forgot to take pictures because I was so excited to eat. Hahaha!

Anyway, here’s a copy of their menu I asked from the guard (I scanned it):

Red Big Bowl Menu

RBB menu (continuation)


1. From MRT Shaw Blvd. station, you can take a jeep or FX headed to Quiapo. If you’re coming from MRT Boni station, take the jeep going to Stop & Shop (not Gabby’s). Ask the driver to drop you off at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital.

I think it costs Php9.00 for the jeepney fare and Php15-20 for the FX fare.

2. From LRT Pureza station, you can take a jeep headed to Punta or Pasig. You can also take an FX going to Megamall. Ask the driver to drop you off at Lourdes Hospital.

It costs Php7 for the jeepney fare and around Php15-20 for the FX fare.
