Midnight Snack!
Smile 2012-10-10
After the night party with my old highschool friends we decided to have a midnight snack at David's Tea House in 561& 536 Tomas Mapua St., Sta Cruz, Manila. That time im craving for a hot noodle soup so I decided to ordered Chicken Noodle Soup and I also ordered Beef Siomai and for complementary we choose hot tea. The place was great and the foods are all great. I enjoyed the hot chicken noodle soup and the beef siomai was so soft and juicy. The noodles served with chili paste and the chicken was so tender and the soup was soo tasty. I was fully satisfied that night and I started the day with smile and with a full tummy since its already 1:00 in the morning! I love chinese cuisine that is why i loved this restaurant.

Pretty Good Shrimp Siomai
Smile 2012-02-07
Actually, we already had our brunch but after a long walk here in Ongpin, suddenly I felt a little bit of hunger. Since I wasn't looking for anything heavy, dimsum is the answer to my hunger.

My friend and I went to David's Tea House to get my dimsum. I have already tried their Pork Siomai last holiday so I am going to try their Shrimp Siomai.

   House Tea

While waiting for our order, the waiter served us that looked like their House Tea. I like tea. I feel so refreshed whenever I drink tea from Chinese Restaurants. It tastes so clean therefore I feel that I am detoxified by it.

When my Shrimp Siomai arrived, I took one piece and dip it in the sauce that I have mixed. Aside from the usual soy sauce and calamansi, I also put chili in it.

   Shrimp Siomai

The Shrimp Siomai is very delicious. It is actually better than their Pork Siomai. It has full of flavor and the shrimp was very prominent. I enjoyed it so much. Five spoons for this delectable dimsum from David's.

It was worth the wait

 David's Tea House

My officemates told me that David's Tea House located in Sta. Cruz Manila sells dimsum and siopao wholesale. And it costs super cheap to the point that one piece of pork siomai costs like P2.50 (roughly).

The day before the holiday, I went there after office hours. I didn't expect that the line would be that so long. Sadly, when we reached the line, they ran out of stock. sad

I was too eager to go back the following day because I intend to buy two packs for my family...for our Media Noche.

When I arrived there, there was a sign that selling of Pork Siomai will resume 1 in the afternoon. When I came back there around 12:30, the line was longer than the first time that I went there.

I waited and this time, I was able to buy two packs that contains 60 pieces each pack. I truly say that it was a good deal and worth the travel.

   Pork Siomai

When I served it to my family, they liked it. It was delicious because the meat was in tact. They still sell more products there like Beef Siomai, Jumbo Bola-Bola and Asado, Mini Asado and Bola-Bola. I'll definitely go back there but not during peak days. tongue

David's Tea house wholesale dimsum
Smile 2011-06-13

   David's Tea house wholesale dimsum

lol

David's Tea house in Sta Cruz also offer wholesale dimsum a pack of mini asado siopao consisting of 48 pcs is at P170.00/pack while for the bola-bola it's at P200.00/pack. They also have pork siomai at P130.00/pack and the beef siomai at P150.00. Pork siomai is much better than the beef siomai. Great if you want you dimsun steaming hot at home rather than the takeout. They also sale silken Tofu, soy milk in cup or bottle. If you happen to pass by the sta cruz branch you will see other people buying in bulk for resale

Hot Pot!
Just OK 2010-06-27
Rainy evenings in Manila are best spent at David's Tea House. The hot pot soup definitely makes up for the chilly wet weather that envelopes the city. The items they offer range from fresh veggies, seafood and red meat. What I like to order is the seafood platter. It mixes shrimps and scallops perfectly.

This is best shared with a group (5-up)
