Top 10 Siomai Under P100
On a quest to find the best siomai in town? Check our top 10 list.
By: Lorraine Tan  |   Published on: Sep 10, 2010 - 8:00am

Address: 810 Benavidez St., Binondo, Manila
Operating Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Price: P60 (4 pieces)

Ask any siomai fan for their go-to place for authentic and reasonably priced siomai and expect to hear Wai Ying as a top recommendation. Located at the heart of Chinatown,  Wai Ying has been around for more than a decade serving their famous siomais to loyal patrons.  We can see why they love  Wai Ying's siomai which is very meaty with a generous amount of shrimp and  chopped mushrooms. We love how the wrapper doesn't harden even after you leave it out for a couple of hours.


Address: G/F Shoppesville, Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan
Tel. No.: 726-3677
Operating Hours: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Price: P70 (4 pieces)

Le Ching's siomai does not contain ground meat mashed up to create a tiny meatball, but instead, expect to bite into tender, juicy meat strips that remind us of their well-loved Pork Spareribs. It can be enjoyed even without dipping it into their signature toyomansi sauce. Plus, it has the kind of  wrapper that doesn't get mushy or powdery over time.

    I thought you should have mentioned Kowloon the 24/7 stalls around the metro. They're siomais are just 55 pesos and they're actually yummy

    You should try Shanghai siomai. The siomai (and Shark's fin) is quite big and really tasty. And way below PhP100

    I wish causeway was not mentioned here, so that it would get more crowded as it is already today.

    Buti nalang walang Chow King. Their standard is not as good as before. In some branches they don't even have chopsticks anymore. And they don't serve TEA at all! Saan ka nakakita ng Chinese restaurant, kahit fast food pa siya, that doesn't serve tea? Only in Chow King. A Chinese restaurant that doesn't serve tea is like a woman who had an HRT.

    Ditto for Hen Lin! Although most of the places you said is in San Juan, not much in Makati. Oh well, I have to go to Causeway one of these days to try out their dimsum. :)rnrnFor others who kept on bashing on the list. Come on, if you want to have your own list, go lang. Make your own I just don't know if it'll be as successful. :))

    ministop? dimsum 'n' dumplings? come on!! they taste old and disgusting, mas masarap pa nga yang master siomai na yan. But seriously, the siomai in Floating Island in Makati Med is awesome and Nathaniel's. Kowloon is pretty good too.

    Muy Hong along Banawe (behind STC) should be on the list. Yum. Nagcrave na ko tuloy. Was surprised to find ho-hum siomais in the supposedly "top 10" list. A more extensive research should have been conducted before posting the list.

    anak ng siomai! wats DnD doing on the list? naman po, sobrang lasang arina siomai nila (in fairness sa ibang dumpling nila especially yun me quail egg, masarap). Master Siomai, Jonas and Panda Mien could be more justifiable to include here in terms of taste and price.

    Northpark and HapChan too should be on the list! Now I'm craving for siomai, which will be impossible to have one here on the Baltics. grrrrr....
