Mandaue City is still part of Cebu Province but compare to Cebu City, good restaurants are rare in this area, especially good Chinese restaurants.
Tao Yuan was opened a couple of years back inside J Center Mall and it has already attracted a following because it serves authentic Chinese dishes. This is the first time I visited the place since its a bit far from Cebu City so given a chance to try their food, they did not disappoint me.
Their seafood pumpkin soup is one of the best pumpkin soup I have tasted. A must try is also their fried pigeon (wasnt able to take a picture because you have to consume the pigeon hot) The taste of the fried pigeon is the same as the fried pigeon served in Hongkong. Hand down they have d best fried pigeon in Cebu.
Their price point is a bit higher compare to other Chinese restaurant, but their quality is incomparable. I suggest you give this place a try especially for those who love Chinese food.
