Have you ever wondered how cuisine from other Asian countries taste like and how you can get to enjoy it without ever leaving Cebu? Well, you don’t need to wonder anymore because we’ve got Ulli’s Streets of Asia, where it’s possible to go on an awesome culinary adventure in just one place.
Ulli’s Streets of Asia’s specialties are as diverse as the countries of Asia. They’ve got dishes inspired by the countries of Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia. Like I told you earlier, it’s a culinary adventure in a single restaurant.
So as a newbie, which dishes should you try out first? We may have different preferences for food but these are my suggestions.
Ulli’s Streets of Asia Appetizer
Fish Balls in Red Curry
For starters, you can try out their Fish Balls in Red Curry. It’s unlike the fish balls we usually eat in the streets because the fish balls themselves are already tasty but if you want to have a slightly spicy kick to it, dip it in red curry. It is a sure fire way to open your appetite!
Ulli’s Streets of Asia Soups
Fish Balls in Broth
Just imagine a rainy day or sunny day and you just want something savory to warm you up. If Filipinos love to have nilat-ang baka or manok (boiled beef or chicken), some of our neighbors prefer to use fish balls in broth. It may not be as meaty or savory as nilat-ang baka or manok but it does help warm us up and ready for the main dish.
I was in Singapore when I first tasted laksa and I was hooked almost immediately! I love dishes that are bursting with flavor and laksa is definitely one of it. The soup got me “curried” away! The tender noodles, crunchy bean sprouts, soft meat of the chicken, shrimp, tofu, and fish balls give each spoonful of serving in your mouth a fiesta you truly deserve! Hey! This is my favorite dish in Ulli’s and let’s keep it a secret, shall we? (wink)
Ulli’s Streets of Asia Stone Pots
If you have an appetite as big as an emperor, a choice of hot pot filled with shrimps, broccoli, mushrooms, bokchoy, and corn would never go wrong.
If there’s one thing I love about Korean cuisine, it’s the fact that it’s filled with lots of veggies, and bibimbap brings all the Korean goodness in one single bowl. The sound of fresh and crunchy veggies, the tangy and spicy taste of kimchi and pepper paste is almost divine! No kidding! I even ate one bowl all by myself last Sunday. (Yep! I have a big appetite when I’m craving.)
Ulli’s Streets of Asia’s Dishes Best When Shared
Tori Tori Platter
Who doesn’t want barbecues, right? What best way to enjoy a platter full of barbecues is to enjoy it with the company of your friends! If any of your friend prefers chicken, baby squid, bacon, and shrimp, call this platter a feast!
Combi Pork Platter
If you’re a pork fanatic, this platter will surely catch your eye, and your palate!
I love noodles! I love this Singaporean stir-fried specialty because the noodle is al dente, the meat and fish ball slices add texture to every bite, and the soy sauce makes it very savory.
Ulli’s Streets of Asia Fresh Juices
Personally, I prefer to drink fresh juices if I eat a very good and hearty meal. It’s way healthier too! My favorite among their line up of beverages is the Tokyo Drip, a mix of apple, carrot, and lemon.
Ulli’s Streets of Asia Desserts
Cheng Tng is not just a dessert. It’s a beverage and a dessert rolled into one. This is one interesting sweet treat because of the different textures you get; luscious lychee, soft crunch of barley, and soft grass jelly and sago all dipped in cold sweet cold tea. Ah! What a way to take afternoon breaks!
I’ve got 3 words for their chilled taho, “I love it!” It reminds me of the taho I love to eat as a kid. I used to order Php 10 taho with my choice of glass. Back then, a 10 peso taho is like 4 glasses (or more) of taho serving we get nowadays. But during Christmas, our suking magtataho (taho vendor) would let me grab the biggest glass in my home and I would only pay 10 or 20 pesos! Yep! Christmas was my favorite time to eat taho!
They actually have more sumptuous dishes you can choose. You may want to check out their menu here so that you can plan on what to order on your next food trip. Dining at Ulli’s sure feels like going to Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong for me! I hope you can experience this culinary journey too!
