Best dumplings I've had in a long time

The dumplings were super fresh. They prepared the dumplings right before they were steamed and served to us. No frills restaurant where the kitchen is also the dining area. Your food is being prepared literally inches from the dining tables. I guess that's part of the charm of the restaurant. You... read more

My hostel recommended that I go here for lunch, and I'm so glad I did. It is a very small shop (about 4 tables - I had to share my table with a Filipino couple), but they make the dumplings on a table at the front of the shop -- doesn't get any fresher than that! A plate of 10... More

If you're craving to experience chinese food the way it is in Manila's chinatown district... this is surely one of them. The kuchay was the best I've tasted. The xiao long bao was ok. My son got a bit dismayed by the pork with egg which was actually an omelet with ground pork. For the queasy fine dining types...this place... More

I visited during Sunday lunch time. The place was packed. They were not shooing the customers but they were honest enough in setting clear expectation on the orders and seating capacity. I wanted to order xiao long bao but got disheartened by advising a 20-40 mins wait. The food was good but sometimes it really is the service that makes... More

I've never ate at Dong Bei, the few times I had mine to go. I don't get the hype, compared to other dumpling and noodle soup place, I consider this place average. Maybe the people hyping have not experienced the other establishments or they're just part of the famous foodie walking tour. Not bad, but not spectacular. And the last... More

My trainee and I went to Dongbei last week because I want to show him around Binondo. Of course, we ordered the usual dumplings which I order everytime I visit this place (and was even planning to order the famous Xiao Bao Long) and they told me there's no shrimp available and asked if it was OK. I said no... More

We love to eat at Dong Bei Dumpling in China Town, Binondo. Steamed Pork Kutchay dumpling is very delicious but their fried tofu is standout and so yummy. However, am quite disappointed on their very slow preparation of the fried tofu which takes almost half an hour. May I also suggest that the store owner provide their customer a disposable... More

My husband and I walked 4 blocks just to try this tiny , unpretentious hole in the wall dumplings place along Yuchengco Street (formerly Nueva): Dong Bei. I really do not have any complaints about its boiled pork with Kutchay dumplings, fried tofu with minced meat, soya sauce noodles, stir fried chicken with sesame seeds. They were very good and...

There is much hype bout this place. Tried their steamed pork with chivez dumplings, u can have the dumplings fried or steamed btw. Honestly it wasnt that good. The wanton soup was terrible, the noodles they used were left over bits from the dumpling dough I guess it was soo bland and the soup was worst. I dont know if... More
