Ensconced behind the old building of SM City Clark is the Chinese restaurant called “Modern Shang” embedded along the row of new restaurants in an area of the Skyline that resonates a BGC-like atmosphere.
Modern Shang is a 96-seater Chinese restaurant that boasts of an al-fresco dining for those who wanted to see more of the area which is now frequented by the young generation of Angelenos and visitors from here and afar.
During our visit at the Modern Shang, we had the “deep fried pork” and this is a must for the first timers because the crunchy pork meat and skin will just leave a heavenly taste that keeps you want for more. Pair it with “stringbeans with minced pork” along with the to-die-for dinsums of Modern Shang, and the cocktail of tastes will leave you in a gastronomic feast like no other.
Ok for a start, try their signature “Xiao Long Bao,” a soupy pork stuffing with minced garlic and spring onion; the “Shrimp Roll,” stuffed with hand chopped meat, shrimp, celery, and cilantro; or the “Deep Fried Spring Rolls,” with meat stuffing, cilantro, carrots, celery, and spring roll wrapper.
What about the “Braised Pork Knuckle,” a pork knuckle with cinnamon bark, star anise, bay leaf, pepper corn, onion leeks, garlic, and ginger? The taste is just mouthwatering as the star anise gives it an aroma like no other.
Splurge on “Braised Mixed Seafoods” with Chilean mussel, clams, shrimp, tofu, onion leeks, carrots, chili bean, and oyster sauce.
Finish your meal or dinner with a “Fish Fillet with Black Bean Sauce” before downing a bottle of Chinese beer.
