Sunday afternoon, Me and the group were supposed to do our TV commercial shoot. We had food, water, other beverages, the crew…but alas, we didn’t have all the elements in place. So, our director, Direk Edong, herded us all up, said a few words and called for a pack up.

Due to the disappointing turn of events, I needed good comfort food to salvage what was left of my day.

Me and my foodie buddy Toni were on the road, it was about time for dinner, and we were thinking of a restaurant to wash our worries away…and then it came to me, my mouth started to water at the mere mention of the name…CORAL GARDEN! So off to Libis we went!

Coral Garden brings me back to my college days where my good friend Mark would take a “break” (that’s his term for cutting class) from his hectic college schedule and bring me along to eat at the original outlet in Banawe. He introduced me to what has become, ever since, one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in the Metro.

Me and my foodie companion were kind of short on money to splurge on the big ticket items, but we just had enough to order the CORAL GARDEN favorites!

CORAL SOUP, P50 per cup

We ordered the Coral Soup to start. It is a hot and sour soup with egg, tofu, vegetables, and mushrooms. And in true Chinese restaurant style service, the soup came in less than 10 minutes. And the cups were empty in less than that.


For our main course, we ordered a cup of Coral Fried Rice each and the Coral Chicken. Coral Fried Rice is basically Yang Chow Fried Rice with the addition of Chorizo! Coral Chicken is fried chicken with vegetables swimming in a savory brown gravy.

CORAL FRIED CHICKEN, 1/2 portion, P260

The fried rice is a great combination with the tender chicken and the deliciously savory gravy. The chorizo with the fried rice gives a nice sweet surprise to each spoonful you take in.

The branch in Libis has two floors. We ate at the ground floor, cozy, warm, and comfortable. The second floor can accommodate bigger groups, whole families, and parties. Service is fast and friendly enough.

Our meal for two was definitely value for money under P500. I think we will be back to try out the Fried Noodles with Crab Sauce, and the Beef in Oyster Sauce…mouthwatering indeed! I can’t wait for my next CORAL GARDEN comfort food stop!
