Johnny Chow: Amazing Asian Master



After watching The Sound of Music, my friend and I were starving so we walked around Newport Mall to look for somewhere to try while we're there. We found ourselves at Johnny Chow, an Asian fusion restaurant with a very interesting ambiance.
Guess who?
The servers wear colored wigs (which is kinda cosplay-ish) welcomed us warmly. We opted to seat outside the resto so I wasn't able to take pictures of the interiors. What makes this resto unique is the chairs. Each chair has its own personality. Some of the faces, as I've observed, were Asian stars.
Free Appetizer

Some of their dishes were also named after popular Asian actors and actresses like the dishes we ordered. We got Jet Li Wagyu (Php 385) and Zhang Ziyi (Php 310). We also ordered Johnny Chow Fried Rice (Php 230).

Johnny Chow Fried Rice

Jet Li Wagyu is black peppered beef with shoestring potatoes. I found it very tender that we were able to finish the dish before Zhang Ziyi. Zhang Ziyi is Johnny Chow's version of Mandarin Orange Chicken. I like the crispyness of the chicken which combines well with the sweetness of the orange sauce. I could eat it even without rice. :) Johnny Chow Fried Rice is almost a meal by itself, it's good for 2-3 persons.

Though I found it a little pricey than the usual restaurants I've been to, Johnny Chow is good choice for sumptous Asian dishes. I will definitely try their other dishes once I visit the Newport Mall again.

  1. Hey, Michy! I ran a mini-review of this restaurant a few months back in Facebook. And I should say this is the worst restaurant (Marciano, second)among Marvin's group. We didn't like it a bit. I've noticed that Marvin's group is more successful with their Japanese restaurants like John and Yoko and Sumo Sam. What do you think?

    1. Hi Alfred! This is the first resto under Marvin's group that I've visited so I still can't compare it. Will try to visit the other restos and see for myself. Thanks! See you soon! :)

  5. I've seen this resto when I dropped by Resorts World Manila before; but we went there for the casino so we didn't really have a 'food trip' or something :D
