Mao Jia Hunan Cuisine came about because of the owner’s love for authentic Chinese food. He tells that he often visits a place in Blumentrit just to satisfy his craving. Although the place doesn’t feel like Chinese at all, the food does. I actually liked the place because of it’s casual dining set up, it’s more comfortable, easy to move around. You’ll also notice a lot of Mao Zedong replicas displayed and for sale for P2,500.00 because the owner is also a toy collector and he’s probably helping out a friend who create toys replicas which are now very popular.
They have a huge selection of Chinese food that you can choose from and most of them are spicy. You can also asked to add more spice if your up to it.
Clockwise: Bean Curd with Kuchay P160 – It’s the safest you can eat among all the dishes because it’s not spicy. Stir Fry Frog Legs P380 – I’m not new to this amphibian, although I only tasted it crispy fried and adobo, nothing more. Spicy Fried Chicken P220 it comes with veggies too. Salt and Pepper Shrimp P380
Their best seller the Sour and Spicy Cabbage P120 is indeed a favorite. It has this smokey barbecue taste and a degree of spicyness that’s just right. Sour and Spicy Shredded Potato P120 is like an undercooked fries or hashbrown mixed with chilli. Winter melon Spareribs Soup P200 is the perfect mediator for all the spice I’ve eaten today. Stir Fried Vegetables P120
For the meat lovers they have Spare Ribs 380, Diced Beef with Corn 220 Pepper Sausage with Leeks(which is not on the menu yet) and the Kung Pao Chicken P220.
Chili Fish Head (Imelda) P380 it may seem that it’s too hot to for your mouth to handle but it’s surprisingly the opposite. It doesn’t taste spicy at all. Pork Strips with Chili Pepper 200.
