Been seeing Yumchee in BGC stopover but since it’s always Hobing or Starbucks that I target when I go there, I haven’t given it much attention. Until one night, I got so hungry and I didn’t think that Bingsu nor coffee will help. I went to Yumchee. Clueless on what they offer, I needed to check their menu board for a while first before braving the counter.
|Yumchee, Bonifacio Stopover!|
Yumchee is a Chinese fast food place that has a straight forward menu. For 199 you’ll get to choose your viand plus a side: steamed rice + soup, vegetable fried rice + soup, stir-fried noodles plus soup or seasonal veggies. Add 50php and you’ll get to choose a specialty drink too.
|Complete Meal at Yumchee - 199Php + 50Php for the Drink|
For my first time, I got Orange Chicken with Vegetable Fried Rice and Soup then added Iced Milk Tea as my drink. For 249Php, I got a really good meal! The serving was just right. Not too little but not a lot as well. What I liked though was the quality of food. You’ll think Chowking if I say Chinese fast food but Yumchee is a far cry.
|Orange Chicken - one of the meat dish option|
The Orange Chicken was good – chunks of tender chicken fillet coated with a crunchy batter and smothered generously with a thick orange glace sauce. It was Chinese restaurant quality!
|A cup of Vegetable Fried Rice|
I also loved the Vegetable Fried Rice since it was like Yangchow without any meat or seafood. The soup was of good quality too. Not the typical clear salted soup that you’ll get for free. It’s thick, tasty and had egg in it. The milk tea tasted like Chowking’s Nai Cha!
As I was enjoying my meal, I was already thinking of my next trip to Yumchee. Hubby loves Chinese food too and I know he will like it here. So, after a couple of days, I invited him to have an early dinner in Yumchee.
|Beef Brisket Set Meal with extra order of Shrimp Dumpling|
On my second visit, I got Beef Brisket plus veggie fried rice and soup. No drink this time but I got an extra order of Shrimp Dumpling or Hakaw.
My choice of meet dish during my second visit was another hit! Chunks of tender beef that were flavorful, salty with each meat strand soaking in the brisket sauce. Also loved the trimmings of fat that made each chunk more tasty!
|Shrimp Dumpling or "Hakaw"|
Their Shrimp Dumplings were good too. Perfectly cooked, the wrap had the right thickness and the shrimp inside was succulent and juicy. Didn't feel like fast food dining at all!
|Salt and Pepper Spareribs|
Husband got the Salt and Pepper Spareribs which was served with some vinegar. Loved the crunchy breading, the saltiness and the tender meat. He was more than satisfied with his meal. He also paired his meat with veggie fried rice and soup.
Service was fast and the area was overall clean. Staff were friendly as well and if they see that you're lost when ordering, obviously a newbie, they would willingly help you take your pick.
Definitely one of the best fast food places in the Metro providing quality Chinese food at very affordable prices, I will be back Yumchee!
5 out of 5 Stars for Yumchee!

Jon - there are 3 fast food outlets that are huge in Canada - and not available in the US (well, not everywhere).walmart pharmacy hours of operationReplyDelete
