Choi Garden Chinese Restaurant- A Feast For the Senses at JinJiang Inn Makati

I never knew a Choi Garden exists in the south until we visited the newly opened JinJiang Inn in Makati. JinJiang Inn is a franchise brand from JinJiang International, a leading hotel group in China, with over 3,090 hotels in 61 countries worldwide.

JinJiang Inn currently has 2 branches here in the country- Makati and Ortigas. Both hotels opened late last year offering clean, comfortable and spacious rooms for business travelers and executives.

Aside from being conveniently located near the business districts and shopping malls, JinJiang Inn Makati is also a gastronomic destination among tourists and locals.

You will be delighted to know that JinJiang Inn Makati houses the famous Choi Garden restaurant in Greenhills. The restaurant may be smaller, and menu offerings may be less compared to the original branch, but quality of food is definitely at par.

We had an intimate lunch with friends last week and enjoyed Choi Garden's sumptuous specialties.

Before anything else, Hakaw (P150) for our appetizer.

My personal favorite was the Salted Eggyolk Prawns (P800). The prawns were plump and had a crunchy coating cooked in a rich and indulgent salted eggyolk sauce. An ultimate guilty pleasure!

As the salted egg yolk prawns could be a little too indulgent for some, it is best paired with Choi Garden's signature Rich Man's Fried Rice (P400)- fried rice with egg whites and dried scallops.

For a healthier dish selection, we had some Stir Fried Vegetables (P400) of broccoli, carrots, cabbage and two kinds of mushrooms. 

For our soup we had the West Lake Minced Beef Soup (P550) as recommended by our server. 

The Roast Layer Pork (P600) is one of Choi Garden's roasting house specialty. I love the combination of crunchy skin and tender meat, with just the right amount of fat in between. 

Another favorite was this Black Pepper Beef Ribs (P800) which was very tender and meaty. I liked the flavors of this dish, however it was a bit salty for my taste. 

We got the chance to check out the rooms at JinJiang Inn Makati during our visit. 

The standard room is called Business Room A.

This is Business Room B.

It features a PWD friendly toilet and bath for disabled and elderly guests. 

The Business Suite B offers a spacious bedroom with living area. 

The bathroom has 2 individual sinks, and a big flatscreen tv inside the shower room. 

Lastly, the Business Suite A features a very spacious bedroom, with a connecting living area.

The bathroom sports two sinks, a flatscreen tv and a bathtub for a complete relaxation during your stay. 

One interesting thing about JinJiang Inn is that the mini bar list in the hotel room has the same prices as our local convenience stores. Now, you won't have to leave the room for some late night snacks and drinks. 

Do visit Choi Garden at JinJiang Inn Makati for some sumptuous Chinese dishes and gustatory delights.
