I found myself trying my luck in getting a free table every time I visit this place. The stars aligned this day when I was finally able to enjoy these yumminess in all their meaty goodness! Can’t wait to go back! 🥳🙏🏻
This place may be small but this is where you will find the best Kuchay in Binondo 💯
But be ready to cry your eyes out as you enter their restaurant because they chop the ingredients (onions, specifically) right before you!
This unassuming restaurant has made an indelible mark in Binondo with its affordable but amazing Kuchay Dumplings (a mix of pork and chives). These small pillows of goodness are made from scratch on a simple workstation, and explode with flavor at first bite. Priced at just over USD2 for a serving of 14 pieces, it’s an absolute steal.
Other items on the menu include Xiao Long Bao and the always filling Pancake Stuffed with Kuchay.
Xiaolongbao is one the most famous Chinese food especially in foreign countries. However in Shanghai, one of the top places to try this steamed bun goodness is from Jia Jia Tang Bao. The steamed bun prepared in a small bamboo steaming basket which is called a xiaolong in chinese hence the name is bursting with flavors at first bite as you both get soup and meat inside. In no time, you’ll not even realize you already finished one basket in your own. Their orders comes in different quantities which is good for solo or sharing.
