Wan Chai's Peking Dumpling Wong

One of our memorable restaurant / food discovery during our recent trip to Hong Kong was Peking Dumpling Wong. Truth be told, we decided to get lost in Wan Chai with no specific place in mind. We just followed our grumbling tummies until it led us to Peking Dumpling Wong.


It was almost lunch time when we arrived at Wan Chai and since we only ate "omusubi" and pudding which we bought from the Japanese shop inside iSquare Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui. And we've been walking non-stop the whole morning so we were really famished by the time we arrived at Wan Chai.


There are a lot of restaurants to choose from but we chose Peking Dumpling Wong because there are still available tables and I'm craving for dumplings. However, it was kinda challenging to dine here since the menu are written in Chinese characters and those who are dining inside are all locals. Luckily, daughter knows how to read and speak Mandarin. ;)


I ordered the Pork Dumplings with Noodles, HKD $59. The dumplings and the noodles are freshly made and really, really flavorful. Inside the dumplings are minced pork with chives. There's six pieces of big fat dumplings so its really hard to finish everything since there's also a generous portion of noodles. This was served in a big bowl, just to give you an idea. And had I known that you can just order dumplings, I would've done that. I mean, the lady who joined our table just ordered dumplings- all six pieces of it.


My daughter got the Beef Dumplings with Noodles, HKD $59. It looks the same with what I ordered except for the dumpling which has beef in it. I don't know what happened to my daughter's appetite but she was able to finish her whole bowl of dumplings and noodles. Amazing!


The place was kinda small with only about 7 tables so everyone gets to share the table with a friend or a total hungry stranger. There's only us when we sat down on our table but by the time our orders arrived, we were joined by two pairs of friends. Those seated on our table ordered dumplings only or dumplings with noodles while I saw that there are other dishes being served on other tables. And they eat really, really fast! Maybe its because there's already a queue outside the resto, or that everyone really eat fast except me.


Took a photo of this group of office workers on our way out and I'm so tempted to taste everything on their table! They all look so happy having lunch together. Btw, as soon as one finish eating his/her meal, no need to call the server's attention. Simply go to the cashier which was just near the door.



Another interesting bit I learned about Peking Dumpling Wong is that the lady who makes the dumplings is quite famous since she can make about a hundred dumplings in just a few minutes.

Hoping to visit this place again to try the other dishes.

  1. This is one of our problem whenever we travel, yung menu na walang English translation. Lucky you that your daughter can read and speak Mandarin. Mukhang masikip nga pero kung masarap naman, tiis na lang. :)

    1. Yes, its hard to dine without English translation on the menu. Happened to us once in Bangkok and syempre lost-in-translation ... we were requesting for not or mild spicy, the opposite was served to us! lol

    someone once told me na in HK, mabilisan nga daw. everything is speedier - when you walk the streets, ride the train, etc. kaya kinakabahan ako dalahin ang kids ko jan haha. baka may maiwan.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
