Chinese Dumplings or Jiaozi has become widely popular all over the world, in fact you can find it in any restaurant near you. It is probably one of the best Chinese culinary contribution that has been perfected since the Sung Dynasty.
Traditionally, Chinese families get together to make Dumplings for their yearly celebration of Chinese New Year or Spring Festival. Thanks to Galleon Trade, Filipinos have been enjoying this food even before Filipinos first tasted Paella.
Last Month, I went to Harbor Square to attend an Acer Laptop launch. I came too early so I decided to roam around and look for something to eat. It was my first time in Harbor Square and I was surprised to see another areal in Manila that is fastly becoming a food hub.
The area is definitely a good place to visit after watching a play in CCP, enjoying Star City with kids or if you are plainly looking for a place to hangout. With more than a dozen of food choices, I decided to choose Singkit – a small Chinese restaurant that offers mostly Chinese food with Pinoy twist.
I ordered Sweet and Sour Pork rice toppings and Pork Siomai. I think their sweet and sour pork is by far one of the best I have tasted so far, the pork is a little bit crispy, juicy, tender and best of all it has the right amount of sourness. There’s nothing special about their Pork Siomai or maybe I’m just comparing it too much with Binondo quality Siomai’s that Ive been craving for every weekend.
The service is good and the staffs are so friendly and I guess that’s one of the most important component in a food business. Overall, I think Singkit can potentially compete with other Chinese Fast Food Restaurants in the country. The service is fast, restaurant is clean and best of all.. the food is affordable.
Breakfast in an hour!! Till Next:)
