Their antique menu displays as a centerpiece.
Dining here will give you a glimpse of how Chinese restaurants looks like in the 80s. They tried to maintain and preserve the original look of the place.
You won’t have to worry on what to order. because the must-try is basically all the three main dishes. The Original mami, The siopao (a choice of asado or bola-bola) both taste great. and the siomai.
My usual order would be LARGE MAMI. ASADO SIOPAO and 2 pcs. SIOMAI.
Personally, whenever I dine here, I don’t even look at the menu anymore. I know what I’ll have. All of them. Mami. Siopao and Siomai. just give me the usual.
If you happen to be in the Quezon Avenue area. don’t miss trying out this place. it’s a quick eat and run kind of place.
This is their all around original sauce. perfect for all dishes, whetherf Mami, Siopao or Siomai.
This is their famous siomai. a must try.
