Ma Mon Luk has been around for generations and as far as I know, their food still tastes the same. That being said, their Original Mami is to die for. It's the reason why people keep coming back. Also, it's been a part of Manila's food scene since the 1930s. It's an institution. The secret to this restaurant's success is... More

I was introduced to siopao and mami at this restaurant when I was still a kid. Mami was first discovered here (so they say). My family used to visit this place after hearing Sunday Mass at the Quiapo Church. During my college years at the University Belt I have to pass by this restaurant on my way home from school...

ever since my husband introduced me to this place, we always see to it that we visit the restaurant whenever we pass by quiapo. Kids nowadays would be craving for fast food but foodies, like us, crave for the authenticity of the ambiance, the mami and the humongous siopao of ma mon luk.

The restaurant has not modernized, still having that old Chinese tea house look with ceiling fans and no airconditioning. But the Siopao is still the same as it was 25 years ago when i started eating in this place. And to think that this is the original home of the Mami makes it more special. Just the smell of the...

If I am really hungry, Ma Mon Luk is the place to be. Though the staff may sometimes be slow, the food is always a treat after a hard days work. Always come here with friends. One order is too much for one guy to handle.

if you belong to the 70s this place will strike a nostalgic chord in you. The atmosphere is very down to earth, setting is simple and the mami/ siopao is even simpler. I eat there for the memories of happy family outings. If you're picky this might not be the place for you. But for me,and many others who troop... More
