Since we have no helper, I pretty much cook all the meals in the house. It’s been super hot lately though and our kitchen isn’t air-conditioned. That said, we’ve also been ordering ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat food to help me out. Chinese food is preferred here at home so we’ve been ordering from restaurants like Mandarin Sky, Oriental Palace, and Luk Foo Cantonese Kitchen. The last time we ordered, we tried Tien Mas Taiwanese Cuisine.
Okay so there’s only one size for Tien Mas ready-to-heat viands and that’s Large. Large means getting 2 containers of everything. We ordered Sweet and Sour Pork (P435). It was delivered last May 9 and it had to be consumed by May 13, 2020.
According to the instructions, you just need to microwave for 5-7 minutes to reheat. Call me old-fashioned but I prefer reheating food on a stovetop in a pan. I stored this in the Prime Fresh compartment of my refrigerator so it was slightly frozen.
Our Sweet and Sour Pork was ready in less than 10 minutes. It’s yummy! The pork is tender and the sauce hits just the right balance of sweet and sour.
They also have Fish Fillet in Black Bean Sauce (P435).
Same thing, stovetop reheating. This is a very flavorful dish that also goes well with steamed rice. We’d have one container each of 2 different viands for either lunch or dinner, so our cost per head for viands comes out to P100+ (P435 / 4).
So for lunch or dinner, we’d have this and Sweet and Sour Pork plus steamed rice.
We also got Seafood Fried Noodles (P399).
When we had this for lunch I didn’t cook rice anymore and just reheated both containers.
So I had 2 platefuls like this one. That came out to P100 per person for lunch, lol. Not bad since you don’t even need to cook rice anymore!
Aside from cooked food, Tienmas Taiwanese Cuisine offers frozen uncooked fare like Lumpiang Shanghai (P250 for 12 pcs).
It’s really easy to deep fry. Just get your smallest saucepan so you don’t need to use too much oil. Heat the oil till it boils then just drop the Lumpiang Shanghai in. Fry until golden brown.
They come out really nice and crunchy. Everyone loved Tien Mas’ Lumpiang Shanghai! We will definitely order again. I served it with Heinz Sweet Chili Sauce on the side.
I also ordered Siopao Asado (P250 for 4 pcs). They’re pretty big, perfect for a filling breakfast or merienda. Just steam them for a few minutes and they’re ready.
Tien Mas Taiwanese Cuisine’s delivery offerings really do offer excellent value for money. You can order at https://thefigarogroup.ph/. There’s a minimum order of P500, but I make it a point to order at least 4 viands to make the GRAB / LalaMove fee worth it. Their commissary is located in Mandaluyong so that should give you an idea of how much delivery will cost. Their accepted payment modes include bank deposit, Paypal, credit card, and debit card so it’s really convenient.
