One of our top 5 ultimate go-to place, Jefferson L. The food is incredibly authentic, it's as if you're transported to China. They have a lot on the menu. Dishes are simple and straightforward and they know how to bring out the natural flavors of the ingredients. Xiao long bao here is real good (probably second to Lucky Rainbow's in Chinatown). The other dimsum are just as good! Especially the kuchay dumpling. Omg now I'm craving haha! Condiments, kuchay, vinegar, chilli sauce are excellent. Noodle and rice dishes super yum also! Place is a bit run-down, the first time I came, I was thrown off a little bit. But when the food started to come to our table and the minute I tasted it, I knew I'd come back. Although we heard that they're moving across the street so a new place should be better 9786️ The service is good. Value for money, I'd say it's a bit pricey, but the food is top notch!! So I really recommend this to everyone.978697869786️ #loolooapp #12Days

They used to have a stall in promenade greenhills which makes it accessible to visit, but they've since closed shop there 128542 This is their main branch and harder to locate if you're not used to the winding roads of San Juan.

Chinese comfort food, simple yet satisfying! I come here mainly for their yummy Spring Onion Pancake 128070🏼 Very thin, crispy and crunchy 128523 the seafood with tofu soup is also very good and they're also know for the mustasa rice 128077🏼

Affordable prices and friendly staff, just don't expect too much in terms of ambiance 128513

Best dish in the restaurant would have to be onion pancake. The xiaolongbao's skin was very thick and there was no soup in the xlb itself. The dumplings were ok. The texture of the skin for both xlb and dumplings were the same. Most probably they used the same skin. Boo! Used to be good tho. :(

I feel like puking now. The xiao long bao is cloyingly sweet. Ulk. The skin is too thick. There wasn't even ginger slices in the vinegar dip. Redeeming factor is that at least it had broth inside.

Had sautéed pork noodles which wasn't so bad.

I can't wait for Din Tai Fung to invade our shores! 128523128077

Went with my officemates one night to Suzhou Dimsum, a real hole in the wall restaurant. I was told that the beef noodles were a must try and of course their xiao long bao.

Excitedly ordered my noodles and xlb. As soon as my noodles arrived I was slurping away. I loved the beef broth, it was really rich and flavorful. For about P150 (can't remember exactly how much), I was served a huge bowl about 5-6 pieces of juicy and tender beef slices. Definitely hit the spot on a rainy night! 127836

The xlb was good, I really can't compare xlb's since they taste the same everywhere else. I would say they are on par with Lugang and Shi Lin, Crystal Jade might be a bit better, but not by much. Also bought a frozen xlb pack of 8 for P130 to take home. 128513

Not sure If I'll be back since it's a bit out of my usual area, but a good experience. If you are around the area definitely check it out.

Oh yeah - officemates ordered 1/2 fried chicken, it was sad (kulang sa pagmamahal ang pagkaluto haha), looked like a pigeon, Andok's probably does a better job, so skip this. Seafood fried rice was superb on the other hand. Just stick with the regular Chinese dishes and you will be fine. 128516

So this is Suzhou!128523128518128540128536128525
Hole in the wall and Chinese food peeps, this is an absolutely good place to eat... partly cause it's a "hidden" gem despite its simple ambience, and partly cause their food is good! Loved it!

Their Special Taiwan Beef Noodle Soup is superb. Loving the salty beefy flavor, the beef brisket, the vegetables, and the noodles! Ika nga ni Coco, Yaaameeee1285231285231285235/5

The Xiao Long Bao at P110 for four, but huge portions, is decent. It ain't Shi Lin or Peking Garden, but it will do. Real thick wrapper! 3.5/5

The Spicy Fried Chicken was also intriguing. Kinda like salt and pepper spare ribs but spicier and chicken. Not your usual fare. I liked it. 4/5

Ambience 4/5 (HITW naman eh)
Service 5/5 (granted it was a late weekday lunch so we were only two tables occupied)
Value for money 3.5/5 (for a HITW, it ain't cheap, but I got my money's worth).
Overall 4.5/5, bumped up to 5!128523128523128523

Suzhou FTW!

Food is good but service is really really horrible. You'll think that they spat in your food. Staff could use better training. Go to the green hills one instead.

What we ordered:
Spicy beef noodle soup (P200)
Xiao long bao (P110 for 4 pieces)
Salt & pepper tofu (P110)
Mango sago (P115)

The noodle soup wasn't spicy at all. It was topped with some salted vegetables, beef and leeks. The broth was flavourful and the meat was tender. The vegetable addition might not be likeable by everyone though so I suggest you try it first before mixing it up with the soup. It was okay for me. The noodles were a bit on the soft side, maybe a tad overcooked. I've had better but this was a bit more unique in terms of taste.

The salt and pepper tofu was yummy! Tofu cubes fried with a crunchy coating of Japanese breadcrumbs and topped with wok-fried garlic, leeks and green bell pepper! It's like the tofu version of salt and pepper spareribs. Of course it was a bit blander because it's tofu and not pork, but it was tasty enough for me. You could dip it in a little xiao long bao sauce too. I found that adding slight acidity brings out the flavours more.

I really liked their xiao long bao!!! It didn't have that very thin but firm wrapper like Shi Lin or Din Tai Feng. Instead, it was thicker and had a thinly sliced carrot at the bottom of each piece so that the soup would not spill out of the dumplings.

What I loved about their version is the filling. It was the one of the best if not the best filling I have tasted. Authentic or not, I just loved that the minced meat wasn't overground to a mush. It also tasted more like the soup was actually juice from the pork rather than added soup (even if it were not the case). Yum! Their black vinegar did not have that annoying aftertaste I hate too! This is perhaps my favorite xiao long bao version.

Finally, mango sago was served in a big cup--enough for 2. It was sweet. The mango itself was ripe enough. i just disliked that there were chunks of ice that remained after blending. It was a bit less dense than how I would have preferred but it was alright. It wasn't my order anyway.

Xiao long bao!! I'd like to go back and try their shrimp wantons is soy sauce too!

I think I found a new Chinese HITW that, well, made me fall inlove.

Suzhou Dimsum in Sucat (their original branch is in Malate).

I'm not a fan of chinese food (ever since the world began) but I'm beginning to like them since I came back from living in a chinese-infested country. However, I still choose the food I eat. And mind you, I don't get easily impressed with this kind of food... Until I found Suzhou Dimsum.

I've watched some show in TLC saying that there are gazillion types of chinese food... So I guess i found my type. 128541

The branch they have in Sucat is not easy to see or rather is "ignorable" but since I saw their signage in between familiar-commercial-signages, I've mentally noted the visit... And finally I did.

Since it was my first time and I had no idea what to order, I trusted my gut. I ordered Taiwan Beef Noodles (solo-80), Suzhou Rice (solo-90), and Spicy deep-fried spare ribs (200+ good for 2-3pax).

When I entered the establishment, I sensed that familiar Ongpin feel --- the cafeteria-like, chinese food stop where you can see the hustle and bustle of people eating, chatting...etc (I went latenight so there were few people remaining), But this one was clean...

The noodle soup was oh-to-die-for! It's reminiscent of the Pho Bo that I ate in Saigon (but of course the Pho was better). There was a generous serving of tender beef and veggies. The broth was impressively delicious! It was the first time I ordered soup and downed the broth up to the last sip!

Then there's the solo-more-than-a-cup Suzhou rice with an unselfish helping of shrimps. That was flavorful too. And of course the spareribs. It was so crunchy and yummy inside and out, I even ate the crumbs! 128540

I usually eat this cuisine with leftovers but this time, I gave no mercy! My dinner was more than sulit! What I love about it was, it wasn't as oily as the typical authentic chinese food I normally encounter.

I'd recommend this to everyone and I'll go back here again and again... To taste the other food s in their menu! 128077128076

Chinese Comfort Food at Best!

I'm back to one of my favorite Chinese Eateries in the area for a late afternoon snack fix. I knew what I wanted without even having to look at their extensive menu.

The Xiao Long Bao - soft dimsum wrapper encasing those precious meat and soup stock morsels. Excellent with the black vinegar and ginger strips.

Tofu with Oyster Sauce topped with Century Eggs and Pork Floss- they use Japanese tofu-- creamy, soft, smooth -- the sweet /salty oyster sauce blends perfectly with the eggs and pork floss. One of my favorite protein-rich dishes.

Hot and Sour Soup- they do it right. Right balance of tang and spice. Flavorful broth and meat bits. Right thickness ..

Chicken and Century egg Congee- comfort Lugaw at best.

Filled and happy, I know I'm skipping dinner 128516

The Xiao Long Pao is very good. Another favorite of mine is the Tofu with Century Egg and Pork Flakes- the silkiness of the Japanese Tofu marries perfectly with crunchiness of the pork flakes, the sweetness of the Oyster Sauce , and the salty-creaminess of the century eggs. Their Pancake with Spring Onions is also a favorite of mine-- the way they blended the fried spring onions into the crepe-like pancake makes it a good dish.
