got the famous kutchay dumplings , 15 pieces for 100 PHP. not bad, pretty cheap actually. the dumplings are freshly made, thin, clear and glistening boiled dumplings (you can choose fried as well). it comes with a vinegar and garlic dip which is actually a perfect condiment for the dumplings.
fried tofu with pork meat (150 PHP) more like a tofu burger, pork in between slices of tofu cooked in a brown sauce. could anything go wrong with tofu? none, if you ask me. this is our favorite dish.
they also have handiwork noodles, which probably means hand made. we opted for this unique soybean noodle dish (100 PHP) which is a dry noodle dish with soybean and sliced cucumber. this one is refreshing. but not perfect for those who want some meat in their noodles.
for drinks, they have this chinese version of C2. wong lo kat which tastes like flowers but not that much so it was tolerable for me.
the place is very affordable, limited menu but you can simply splurge with the dumplings and tofu. a good hole in the wall place in binondo.
