DaTang's Authentic Chinese Cuisine in Venice Grand Canal Mall

DaTang's Authentic Chinese Cuisine in Venice Grand Canal Mall

It was my first time visiting The Grand Canal Mall, and I couldn't help but be mesmerized with the structure. It's currently still in the process of filling up its tenants, but it's really starting to bring in great choices for us foodies. One of which is DaTang which just opened up this July 2017. Fortunately, I was given the privilege to witness its grand launch, and here in this blog post, I'll be sharing with you the experience.

DaTang's Restaurant in Venice Grand Canal Mall

An air of sophistication 
DaTang's interior has this air of sophistication exuding from its design and the predominance of red. The restaurant is also dimly lit producing some level of comfortable coziness, making DaTang an ideal place for intimate dates or small family gatherings.

Authentic Chinese Cuisine
DaTang's cuisine is inspired by the Golden Age (during the Tang dynasty, thus the name) of China, when progress in literature and food was on its peak. With the integration of modern cooking techniques and flavors, DaTang's dishes may be labeled as Chinese fusion.

The first line-up dishes are Cold Appetizers with prices ranging from P180 to P380 depending on your choices.

The Soy Sauce Chicken (P260) had an authentic soy taste that was very natural and smoothly runs on the buds.  Those with traditional buds may find the taste overpowering.
