  • No. 8 China House in BGC: Boasting Excellent Cantonese and Duck Dishes
  • Updated as of January 24, 2024.

    Grand Hyatt Manila in Taguig City may be a treasure trove of fine-dining restaurants situated inside the grandiose building, but their pursuit for a warm and more relaxed space still remains the same, more so with the birth of No. 8 China House located at the Level 5 of the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

    No. 8 China House sports an informal dining setting and an open kitchen serving mainly Cantonese dishes. The restaurant is manned by handpicked chefs from China, each working at their own specialties in the wok, dim sum, and Peking duck stations.

    What perhaps is the star of No. 8 China House is their most sought-after Peking Duck (Starts at Php 2888) cooked in their special wood fire oven, fueled by locally sourced mango wood to add a fragrant and appetizing aroma to the dish. Each slice of this iconic dish offers a rich, aromatic flavor that is complemented by the sweet hoisin sauce and soft, warm pancakes, served with a flair that captivates both the palate and the senses.

    To add to the appeal, the ducks are grown specifically to a certain standard by Grand Hyatt’s local partner in Victoria, Laguna, making it a truly unique experience for everyone.

    Meanwhile, among their other mouthwatering dishes include the Braised Sea Bass (Starts at Php 2988) and their Wok-fried King Prawns soaked in Rice Wine (Php 1868).

    The Braised Sea Bass at No. 8 China House is a sublime expression of elegance and flavor. This dish features a beautifully tender sea bass, slowly braised to perfection, absorbing the rich sauce that it’s bathed in. The delicate, flaky texture of the fish, combined with the depth of the spicy-savory sauce, creates a harmonious blend of taste and texture.

    Featuring expertly fried prawns in a wok to achieve a delightful crispness, then drenched in a delicate rice wine sauce that adds a sophisticated, slightly sweet flavor, their Wok-fried King Prawns soaked in Rice Wine is an exquisite balance of the natural sweetness of the prawns and the aromatic richness of the rice wine.
