The restaurant is located at Silliman Avenue and with its big signage you’ll never have a hard time finding this dimsum house. Harbour City offers the widest range of dimsum choices, where the food is wheeled in by servers straight to the customer’s table-sides for convenient and fast selection. This unique way of serving the food to customers is practiced across all Harbour City branches in the Philippines. One cart is dedicated for steamed goods while the second cart is for fried goods and lastly the third cart is for the drinks. The servers roam around the restaurant so customers will just point whatever they like on the menu. The carts have burners so food temperature is maintained.
The servers were also trained for suggestive way of selling. For those who are not familiar with Chinese cuisine but are ‘in’ for the experience, worry less because Harbour City servers are good in suggesting the best food which goes well with the other dimsum dishes they are serving as well as the type of sauce that goes well with your food selection.
Nowadays, aside from the Filipino cuisine, Chinese cuisine is the second option. Now, they have a very wide selection of dimsum that we are very excited to offer Dumaguete says Aisha Nuñez, Marketing and Promotions Officer of Harbour City Dimsum House Dumaguete
Harbour City’s best sellers are the following:
- Steamed Fried Rice which is a perfect combination of savory pork and shrimp toppings over seasoned fried rice.
- Shaomai varieties like Shaomai and Quail Egg Shaomai with each bite full of chunky pork and shrimp pieces.
- Spring Rolls and Garlic Pork Spare Ribs
For noodles, don’t miss to taste their Beef Sate Noodles or Lomi.
The training regimen of the restaurant’s cook is rigid explains Marketing and Promotions Officer Nuñez. They made sure that food safety and time-honored service are of great priority when dealing with their customers.
The restaurant’s ambiance and atmosphere is very relaxing. The place can also accommodate big and small groups. Downstairs, they have a circular chair that can accommodate a group of 6-8 persons. They also have chairs with cushions as well as the regular chairs in the restaurants. Whether you’re going in groups or solo, Harbour City offers cozy, discreet, and unique atmosphere depending on the area you’re seated inside the restaurant.
The second floor will have three function rooms in the coming days. The room capacity will be about 25-50 people. The rooms are conjoined to accommodate those groups who opt to have a bigger space for their events or special occasions.
Harbour City is also geared up for the very competitive, wide and diverse market. According to Nuñez what’s unique about Harbour City is their menu, which have authentic, traditional recipes that are homegrown. The restaurant is also known for using all natural ingredients in their menu.
