Tien Ma’s Taiwanese Cuisine | Best xiao long bao in Manila

I am obviously a big fan of Chinese food, as you can see from my many blog posts about it. Taiwanese food is my favorite of favorites. 😀 A simple porkchop pientong brings me sooo much joy.

I discovered Tien Ma’s Taiwanese Cuisine one morning a few weeks ago after having my blood work done.

I had not eaten breakfast yet, as the blood work required me to fast overnight. Driving around the Banawe area, I was on the look out for a nice breakfast place that I haven’t tried. Tien Ma’s on Retiro didn’t seem so busy yet, and there was a slot for my car right on the doorstep so, game – Tien Ma’s.

Banawe Food Crawl: Fu Chi (Fug Kee) Dumplings

This is yet another post on my family’s Banawe Food Crawl! Fu Chi Dumplings is one of those Banawe Street restaurants that have been around for a while but we just kept passing by – dinadaan-daanan lang. 

(UPDATE: The restaurant has changed its name to Fug Kee)

We noticed one fine day that we were hungry and craving for dumplings, though, that this place was often full. So we got curious.

Fu Chi is a small eatery, and can sometimes get a bit stuffy, especially on a hot day. Most people will probably find the food just average. But if you’re crazy for noodles (like the hub is) or dumplings (like the kids are) or pientong (like I am), this is the place.

Steamed pork dumplings (P60 for 10 pieces) – my favorite among all dumplings I’ve eaten so far.

Lam Tin Tea House | Banawe Food Crawl

My family has been going to Lam Tin Tea House along Banawe Street in Quezon City often lately. I guess that’s just the way we are –  when we find some new yummy place, we keep going and going until we get tired of the menu. Kinda like infatuation…

Lam Tin, a small no-fuss Chinese teahouse,  is almost always full each time we go on Sundays. I heard from two different sources that the chef at Lam Tin was pirated from Causeway Seafood Restaurant. I’m not sure how true, but the food is a winner in my books.
