Ma Mon Luk
Three weeks ago, I had my nursery orientation/training (I am now back where I belong because Nursery is closest to my heart.) at a certain government hospital in Binondo, and since then, I am always craving with Chinese food. There was even a time when I ate siopao (although the ones I bought were only from a 7-Eleven store) and hopia (Eng Bee Tin is a new favorite) as my afternoon snacks for a week. I still salivate up to this moment with that thought. So in search for an authentic Chinese food, my sister and I headed to Ma Mon Luk yesterday. Although the restaurant is only a few blocks away from home and passes by it almost everyday, I neglected it for years. We sort of starved ourselves so we could order a lot. I know, it's bad. Don't do it. We giggled as we entered the low profile restaurant. It's not air-conditioned, but it's huge and you could really tell it's old. Most customers were old folks too. Here's what we ordered.
|Original Mami at Php105/large bowl. This was my order.|
|Siomai Php45 for 2 huge pieces. This looks oily, but it's yummy! Don't forget the calamansi and soy sauce.|
|Ate Boom ordered beef mami at Php115/large bowl.|
