Phoenix Court at The Bellevue Manila: World-Class Asian-Fusion Recipes
The elegance of Phoenix Court at the Bellevue Hotel in Alabang had us really excited with what they offer as a Chinese restaurant. Its spacious and well-lit fine dining area with shades of orange give off a stimulating atmosphere which is in perfect harmony with the delicious food they serve. Each table can seat about 6 to 8 people, which makes it an ideal place to celebrate family gatherings.
The restaurant’s name, Phoenix, is a kind of bird that symbolizes good luck and prosperity in Chinese mythology. They say that many people who come here to dine feel lucky—and so did we, as we got to taste what Chef Cheong Kwan Loong, their Chinese Executive Chef, prepared for us.

While many restaurants tend to focus on a particular regional cuisine, Phoenix Court seeks to sing a different tune. “The food-loving Filipinos are our inspiration in putting together a fusion which Phoenix Court offers,” says the chef. With a menu that’s quite liberal, their Asian-Chinese fusion dishes have become the highlight of their restaurant.
French Beans with Minced Pork topped with Enoki Mushroom (Php 501.08)
We started with their Stir-Fried French Beans with Minced Pork. Composed of crunchy green beans and sautéed minced pork, their version of this healthy Chinese dish is as savory and flavorful as it can get.
Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk (Php 893.23)
We also loved Phoenix Court’s Deep-Fried Prawn Ball with Salted Egg. Made with tiger prawn, this dish is mildly sweet and salty and is bursting with flavor in every bite.

Make sure to try Phoenix Court’s DimSum-All-You-Can! For only Php 680++, guests can order as many servings of any of the Dimsum seen on their menu.
