Feeling a bit adventurous and finding myself without my usual lunch buddies, I decided to try out the newly opened dimsum and noodle place near my office.
It’s really a hole-in-the-wall, a cozy (almost cramped) self-service eatery along Mother Ignacia Avenue. I suggest you head on over here for lunch a bit early as it tends to get full of diners really fast. In fact, I almost didn’t have anywhere to sit; it’s a good thing I was able to spot some coworkers who were already dining there and allowed me to sit with them.
Given the really affordable pricing, I actually went a bit crazy with my orders (takaw-mata, anyone?): Spareribs with rice (Php85), Pork and Shrimp Siomai (Php45) and Quail Egg Siomai (Php35). I didn’t get to finish my rice toppings and quail egg siomai as I got too full. Still, it was a filling lunch at less than Php200 so I can’t complain.
If you want a quick, fuss-free and affordable meal, this place might just be your best bet.
