About Kusina Tsina. Established in 2008, Kusina Tsina is the brainchild of Eugene Chua. Having been trained by Hong Kong chefs in the prestigious Chinese restaurant Gloria Maris, Chua acquired the skills of his superiors – thus abled him to lead his own venture. Chua recalls the lessons he learned during his time working with Hong Kong chefs – he considers Cantonese chefs as the best chefs due to their perfectionism and working ethics.

Chua’s time at Gloria Maris inspired him to open his own restaurant. Having moved to Iloilo, Chua was able to assess the needs of the Ilonggos and deemed he has so much to offer.

Thus, Chua spearheaded ‘Hong Kong Kitchen’ which was located at Paseo de Iloilo, at Robinsons Place Iloilo. A few years later, he spawned Kusina Tsina. The first location of Kusina Tsina was at Quezon Street in downtown Iloilo. Chua describes it as a ‘hole-in-the-wall’.

With the Ilonggos warm acceptance to Kusina Tsina, the restaurant grew – and recently, it has moved to a bigger location at SM Southpoint, in one of Iloilo’s biggest malls.

Kusina Tsina’s bestsellers include its dimsum, roasted items, short orders, and chef recommendations. It highlights its dimsum platter and its Kusina Tsina roasting platter. When asked what makes Kusina Tsina different from other Chinese restaurants, Chua says “hindi lahat ng makikita mo makikita mo rin sa iba, we have our own distinct taste. Walang halong daya. Pag hindi masarap, libre na.”
