ChaMike's 2nd Anniversary offering in Bacolod: Date at MuShu
For a cozier & more romantic ambience, MuShu Asian Restaurant & Lounge is the perfect place for you.
MuShu Asian Restaurant & Lounge, one of the hottest restaurants in Bacolod is owned by MasterChef Pinoy Edition judge, Chef Jayps Anglo. The place is open from lunch time until during midnight. MuShu Restaurant offers a diverse Asian menu ideal for people who have passion for good food.

He asked us to meet Martin, MuShu's manager. Upon meeting Martin who is very accommodating gave us a map and Chef Jayp's car keys (oh we were so lucky!) after which we made a reservation for the night's dinner.

When we arrived at 7 in the evening, the wait staff graciously greeted us and guided us to our seats. Martin told us that Chef Jayps already prepared a dinner for us but gave us a menu just incase we wanted to have an additional order.
Martin personally came to deliver and patiently explained the dishes to use one by one. For starters they served us cocktails. Mike ordered a glass of Strawberry Margherita (P95) while Chef Jayps recommended me to drink Purple Ninja (P95) because he knew I love the color purple.
The dishes started with these three appetizers: Pritchon Pancakes (P185), Salt and Pepper Tofu (P95), Salt and Pepper Squid (P220). For something amazingly unique but delicious don't fail to order the Pritchon Pancakes, it's a combination of meat, cucumber & chili rolled in pita bread with hoisin sauce.

Followed by Crispy Dilis (P95) in chili pineapple glaze. I love dilis! This is a perfect partner for beer or any alcohol drinks.
Then they served the Pancit Molo (P140) a Ilonggo specialty with dumplings, hainanese chicken, shrimp and pita bread. Mike loved this one! :)
For the the main course here were MuShu's finest: Tortang Talong (P158), Sizzling Kansi (P180) and Lechon Kawali (P155). The Tortang Talong is not your ordinary and simple fried eggplant. Cooked with sardines, kesong puti and grilled tomatoes with pinakurat and sweet chili sauce.
The Sizzling Kansi is popularly known as Sizzling Bulalo in most areas. It tasted divine, even if we were already full from all the dishes served we couldn't get enough of this one. A must try!
Last main course was our personal order, Lechon Kawali. Like most of the dishes served here, the Lechon Kawali was not the typical Lechon Kawali I've tasted as I quote Mike 'One of the best Lechon Kawali I've ever tasted'. It is thinly sliced with two different sauces: pinakurat dip and sweet soy sauce.
And of course we ate desserts! The restaurant only offers two desserts: Banana Chocolate Spring Rolls (P130) and Lava Cake (P130) but it's a must to order BOTH! The Banana Chocolate Spring Rolls is a turon-like dish with chocolate filling sprinkled with cinnamon and served with vanilla ice cream- yummy!
For our finale, Lava Cake! Freshly baked molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. ChaMike loves chocolate cake with ice cream dessert so this one was the highlight of our night. The surprise anniversary greeting added gush to my senses.
It was a lovely evening with a lovely date, a lovely dinner treat and lovely courteous staff.
