After the bloggers tour of Hello Kitty Village at SM North Edsa, I was famished but good thing Ross of WheninManila.com invited us again for another event, this time for the grand opening of Dimsum Break. Dimsum Break is popular in Cebu, that’s why they are bringing the dimsum goodness here in Manila. As the name suggests, Dimsum Break serves dimsum and Chinese food, but what makes them famous is their Steamed Fried Rice.
I’ve read from several blog posts about this new Michelin starred dimsum restaurant in Mongkok, Tim Ho Wan. This made Tim Ho Wan included in our lists of “to-do” things, Lin Heung (which is also a Michelin starred restaurant) is also included in the list but Tim Ho Wan is closer to TST. Coming from the warnings of other bloggers, the waiting time is 2 hours, so to avoid this, come before the place opens at 10 am. We arrived past 10 am, so the first batch of lucky diners were already munching their dimsum inside. We were handed an order slip by the attendant, scribbled number 11 on it and hastily said “half hour!”. We roamed around the area for around 20 minutes and when we came back, we’re surprised with the crowd in front of the place:
Dimsum lovers strike again as we cruise along Banawe Street looking for Chinese restaurant that serves dimsum in a push cart. We’re looking for an eat-all-you-can promo but I haven’t encountered such in a Chinese restaurant. We spotted Causeway Seafood Restaurant, the busy parking area signifies that food must be good here.
It’s lunch time when we got there and the place is packed, we were greeted by this…
I spent Maundy Thursday together with Nanay visiting churches or what they call Visita Iglesia. This is a popular tradition in the Philippines during Maundy Thursday, during which people will visit church/churches and do the Way of the Cross or Stations of the Cross. This is done to recall the sufferings of Jesus Christ during the last few hours of His death.
