Most of their dishes are very spicy and cannot be adjusted according to your preferred level of spiciness because they want to serve only but the best authentic Szechuan dishes.

Long Time Ago

Salted Egg with Eggplant (P320)
I liked the combination of salted egg and eggplant together. Despite that it was fried, you can’t feel any greasiness on this dish. This is a perfect dish to calm your taste buds from other spicy dishes.

Long Time Ago

Money Shrimp (P680)
Another dish with salted egg is the Money Shrimp. The shrimps are so crispy that you can eat its head and shells without having a hard time.  I can’t stop munching on some potato strings in this dish.

Long Time Ago

Big Pot Cauliflower (P320)
The spiciness in this veggie dish is quite tolerable than the rest.I loved that the cauliflower was prepared in bite-sized pieces.

Long Time Ago

Braised Pork Feet  (P480)
In China, pig’s feet  is considered as one of the most delicious parts on pig. Prepare yourself as this dish will leave a burning sensation in your mouth.

Long Time Ago

Ox-tail Casserole (P480)
This dish is dark, sticky and super tasty. You know that it was nicely done because the meat is so tender and just breaks apart.

Long Time Ago

Tasty Small Lobster (P1,800/small;P2,800/big)
I never tried small lobster before, this dish will require a little patience in pulling out the meat from the shell. It was really spicy for me though I can’t help myself because this dish is so enticing.

Long Time Ago

Braised Fish (P880)
See that reddish sauce and some chili flakes?  I can’t even explain how spicy is this dish. The fish itself was perfectly cooked though I don’t know what kind of fish they used for this dish.

We went back to the first floor to do some grilling. I find it enjoyable because their grilling stations are smokeless, I don’t have to worry getting an allergy after. At Long Time Ago, there are no minimum order required for you to start grilling but each stick will cost you around P30 to P100 each. They have marinated chicken, lamb, pork or even beef.  I hope they will have an option of unli grill to make you feel more “sulit” because one stick of meat comes in tiny pieces. The meat itself is already flavorful but if you want to add more they have packets of chili powder and peanut sauces.
