Beef Sate Noodles - Was good pero in the long run medyo nakakaumay.
Wanton Noodles Soup - As per the comment of my mom hindi masarap yung dimsum in the noodles, pero fore masarap yung Soup
Buchi - was hot and taste like what a buchi should taste like
Fried spring rolls - limpiang Shanghai ang lasa.

So SM Annex' dimsum break had its august to October 11-2pm eat all you can dimsum.. So my office mates and i only knew on the last day.

Well, that's okay because I think i wouldn't go for a second time narin. The food.. Was, of course very far from Tim ho wan's .. It's just a little below average.. Cguro 2.7?

What's the usual color of sweet sour? Red db? Here it's brown.. Tasted old. The fish weren't fresh too.

The 'shiaomao' was a little above master siomai

Their rice meal.. I had two of them their beef rice.. I like the sauce but ok lang yung meal. The rice was like Persian... Basmanti?

They are back to normal operations. A meal costs about a hundred peso.

It's the last day of the all-you-can-eat dimsum promo! As expected, there was quite a long line just to get a table. But the food was excellent as always. And the best part is still that unbeatable price of 198 pesos!

How I tell-all our eat all you can dimsum experience. Literally ordered for different kinds of Siomai. For 199pesos you get unlimited servings of dimsum of your choice. Plus 26pesos for bottomless iced tea. The place is that of a fast food chain but lines keep on coming. People are too intrigued about how the whole buffet type goes.

Food isn't too tasty but okay. I ate Siomai with bacon wrapped around it, Siomai with quail egg, etc. they even have spicy Siomai!

I even skipped my breakfast to get my tummy full. I may give 4 out of 5 stars for value of money the whole experience gave me 128522

I was super excited to finally eat dimsum break in manila and i wasn't disappointed except for the staff. Service was so slow and they weren't that accommodating. Also, we were charged double just because we didn't finish some of our siomai. So instead of our 198/per person eat-all-you-can trip we ended up paying 396/per person.

For all dimsum lovers out there, this is the place you want to be. At 198php, you could indulge yourself to a variety of dimsums. From plain siomai, to eggrolls and chicken feets, buchi and pork spareribs etc., this is your kind of hole in the wall dimsum place. They are also offering rice meals, and yes its included in the buffet also, order as many as you can. This promo runs until october 31, 2014 11am-2pm only. Just to be fair, their dimsums taste great. 128077

So we tried their ALL YOU CAN EAT promo until October 31. And I must say, I am so full tanked! 198.00 is so worth it. Plus you can add 22pesos for the bottomless iced tea. Super sulit. Must try. Since we're stuck at home for a night due to Typhoon Mario with no food at home, all you can eat is so easy like a piece of cake. Hihi. ;)

1⃣ Yang chow fried rice 128077
2⃣ Original steamed fried rice 128077
3⃣ Steamed hakao128077
4⃣ Beef sate noodles (I find it so-so), maybe not a fan of peppery-saucy noodles but a plus would be they didn't scrimp on the beef

127826 Judgement: Definitely a bang for your buck when you're hungry 128521 I wish the place was more well-lighted though (parang nakaka-antok yung vibe lol)

Anyway, I forgot to order their egg rolls as I didn't see it on their menu 128532 Or is it gone?!

I have always enjoyed the budget-friendly meals Dimsum Break has been offering that doesn't hurt both your wallet and your taste buds.

One day, while I was taking a stroll in SM North Edsa Annex, I noticed a poster displaying new additions to their menu: set meals. So even if I really wasn't too keen on the idea of eating alone, it seemed like the poster (and my stomach) lured me inside the store.

What I ordered was the value meal which consisted the Steamed Fried Rice, 6 pcs. of Beef Spring Roll and a glass of Iced Tea for P79 pesos. In addition to that, they also gave me prawn crackers served in a paper cone. :)

(You can skip the next paragraph to read the food review since I'd be using the next one to narrate my experience here. You've been warned. :))

However, as I was making my way towards my seat, I balanced my tray in one hand since my other hand was occupied. It was going well at first, until I lowered my hand to place my tray into the table and all the contents of it started sliding down the floor. Goodbye Iced Tea and Spring Rolls. Of course I was thinking that they wouldn't replace it since it was my fault for being so careless, but I still asked the waiter who came over to clean the mess I made. He told me he'd go and ask someone inside. When he came back, I was so relieved to see him bringing another glass of Iced Tea and a plate of spring rolls. Kudos to the waiter for being so patient and accommodating with me and the mess I've made. :)) (his name is Charles, haha.) This also explains the haphazardly taken photo above since I was so flustered, but conscious enough to take a photo for future references. Haha!

So, on to the food review. :)) I enjoyed the crunchy prawn crackers since it was not oily at all. That and the saltiness of the spring rolls (which were satisfyingly crunchy as well) complimented well with the steamed fried rice. Actually, you'd already have a meal if you order their steamed fried rice because they put a generous amount of meat in the rice. The sauce is savory, too.

The sauce is the only thing I didn't like since it was too tangy that it left an aftertaste. However, if you're having a "tastebud-overload" (again, umay. Hahaha.) , you can dip the spring rolls in there from time to time. :))

So if you're looking for a quick and satisfying serving of Chinese food, you should really try eating here. Those with insatiable appetites might have a cry for their wallets though, since you have to order for another serving again and again to make you full. I think they should include that in their menu next time. ;)

Steamed fried rice, bacon siomai and garlic pork spareribs for the win!

The steamed fried rice had a very generous serving of pork. I can eat just this and feel full already. Only problem is the bowl was filled to the brim. I was super careful as i didn't want to make a mess.

If the bacon were crispy, i would love the bacon siomai even more. But then again this is dimsum so i guess that's not possible.

Garlic pork spareribs were really yummy.

Don't worry, each quail egg siomai was topped with just half a quail egg.

I don't recall why i didn't like the sweet and sour pork.

Loved the decors and overall feel of the place.

Going back for the yummy and very affordable food.

This resto originated from cebu city, where my husband hails from. He is so addicted to their steamed rice that whenever we come home from cebu, we would buy take outs and hand carry them throughout d flight. Thank goodness they branched out here in mla, esp d newly opened one in recto, which is near our place. Its one of the best chinese fast food chain for us. Dont forget to order their hakaw!

Our family trips to Cebu wouldn't be complete without a visit to Ding Qua Qua, our go-to Chinese restaurant in the city. The owners of Ding Qua Qua also own Dimsum Break, which we could call the "fastfood version" of the casual dining restau.

Imagine our excitement when they opened a branch in SM North Annex. I remember my dad made me get pork steamed fried rice as soon as we got word of their opening! 128055 When I asked for around 10 orders of this family favorite dish, the cashier asked us, "Taga-Cebu po kayo Ma'am?" 128539 Sad though, they don't have the spicy steamed fried rice (yet?) here in Manila.

We ate here again today just because my mum was craving. Let me tell you, that bacon siomai tastes even better than it looks. It's so sinful, but it's so good I just can't resist! I get it ALL THE TIME! 128523

Everything is also very reasonably priced - P68 for a rice bowl, P65 for most (if not all) of their dimsum, & P55 for dessert! Our bill for 6 people went just a little over P1k. 128522

It's a franchise, so expect that Dimsum Break in Cebu is still better. This place does come really close, though, so it's able to satisfy our cravings for when we're missing Cebu's Ding Qua Qua. 128512
