TIKIM: DONG BEI (BINONDO)



Got to get a taste of the famous Dong Bei dumplings when I joined Ivan Mandy's WOK Tour. This was done during my officemate Joyce's birthday middle of this year. Ivan says the owner is B.S. ("bagong salta" = just recently moved to the Philippines from mainland China).


Detail. Poster says "Dumpling Handiwork" to emphasize that their dumplings are all made by hand (how else?). Anyway, it also implies that everything is new and fresh every day.

Detail. Menu poster. Good luck in the translation! He he!

The afternoon sun bathes the fresh dumplings which are ready for steaming.

The staff work on the dumplings in the dining area so you can actually watch them. It's like an interactive museum of sorts.
Sarap! Hope to visit again soon!

I also visited the place when I joined Ivan Man Dy's tour but failed to take photos with dumpling and the way they prepared it. These photos are awesome. Thanx for sharing...

I love love this B.S. couple's dumplings!

Have since been dropping by regularly after joining Ivan's walking tour. Friends and family loved their dimplins, too.
