PARKLAND CHINESE RESTAURANT, SUNNYBANK

PARKLAND CHINESE RESTAURANT, SUNNYBANK© BUSOG! SARAP! 2012

I love Yum Cha, can’t get enough of those tasty morsels served up in those tiny bamboo steamers.  From Fortitude Valley Restaurants that serves Yum Cha to the old Marigold (sadly it burned down a few years back) in Sunnybank, I have tried a few of them and some I went back a couple of times and most never went back.  Of course you will ask why, well….. it always points to customer service, lack of it to say it bluntly and sometimes cleanliness/broken crockery (big turn off).

Parkland is a sister restaurant of the Famous Landmark in Sunnybank where during weekends its always fully packed with people.  During my pregnancy with Samboy, I had this massive craving for Dim Sums (Yum Cha dishes) specially late in the afternoon and during that phase we are only aware of Parkland serving Yum Cha in the late afternoon/dinner.

CARDILLONG ISDA (Fish Cardillo)

CARDILLO © BUSOG! SARAP! 2012

First of all lets make it clear, Sarciadong Isda (Fish Sarciado) is compose of Fried Fish topped with Sautéed Garlic/Onion/Tomatoes Sauce but if you add beaten eggs to the sauce it will morph into Cardillong Isda (Fish Cardillo).  You might ask what’s the big deal?  Well, in my opinion if a dish has a proper name…as Filipinos, we better start using right terminology if we want to spread Filipino Cuisine to other nationalities, don’t you agree?
