After checking out early from our Staycation at Oakwood to give them ample time to look around the mall, I allowed the kids to knock themselves out shopping at their favorite stores in Megamall to celebrate the end of the school year for the 2 younger ones. Ate on the other hand, still has a long way to go so this was her consuelo-de-bobo treat.
Ito na ang pagkakataon. The penny-pinching cat was away so the naughty, squandering mice can finally play! :P
The kids went crazy for clothes, shoes, swimsuits & other summer wear, scents from VS and other kalat.. (Gah! mabuti at 2 seasons lang tayo!) they shopped ’til they dropped so we had our energies recharged at TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie. At almost 4pm on a Sunday, it was still so full. I’m lucky my kids are maabilidad & were able to swoop down on 1 empty table to rest our weary feet & fill our hungry tummies.

Let me assure you though. There is nothing cheap or simple about TuanTuan. I love the interiors. See for yourself why..
TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie
3/F SM Megamall, Mega Fashion Hall, Julia Vargas Avenue, Wack Wack, Mandaluyong (02) 570-9011
I’m pretty happy how the 2 older ones went up to get us a table while my Lovey & I were settling the shopping bill downstairs. There was quite a long line & they lucked out by getting a table quickly & efficiently. I have trained them well! ;))
Full house! This is one looooong lunch period! :P Or maybe like us, they also shopped first before settling for lunch.
I like the quirky wall decor. Something to look at while waiting for your orders! ;)
I like my coffee black. But for the sake of trying out TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie’s speciality drink, I caved in.
Hong Kong Style Coffee – Hot/ cold 98 php. The girls got their cold.
While I opted for the hot. Simply because I liked the aliw cup it came in. :P Next time though I will make it a point to try the Horlicks Milk – Hot/ cold 88 php. (You do remember Horlicks the candy right???)
Hands down better than the competitor’s, in my opinion. LOVED THESE Pork BBQ buns! <3 The buns were soft & chewy, the filling sweet & I could actually see the pork. So good that we ordered 2 more!
The menus look like chinese newspaper. I love EVERYTHING about TuanTuan! <3
My pretty girls. <3
