Welcome to Manila Food Finds!

This blog was made to cater to the basic need of human beings.

Eating - which we all love to do!

There are hundreds of food establishments up and about that serves fine meals. But what happens if you get tired of the same old taste you eat day in and day out?

Just like the rest of you, I'm looking for new and exciting places to eat and have some fun at the same time, which is why this blog was created - to share with you the adventures (and hassles) that a food lover has to endure in search of a good find.

We're not picky eaters and we'll try everything and anything as long as it's edible!

Master Siomai - Siomai Reinvented

Love Japanese food? (check)

Love Siomai? (check)

Then you ought to try what Master Siomai has in store us. Food items are priced competitively at 25 pesos per order. A cheap treat for students and employees on the go. It's also a unique twist to the very common siomai.



Their popular must try is the Japanese Siomai (right side of pic). It's siomai wrapped in nori (japanese seaweed, the wrap they use for sushi) and topped with (fake) crab. Dip it in soy sauce with lime and chili oil and your good to go! The nori provides extra yumminess to the already delicious siomai we love.

Try it out and taste the difference!

i prefer siomai house than master siomai. master siomai seemed like a copycat of siomai house. siomai house is WAY better than master siomai.not to mention that the master siomai claims to be a sister company of siomai house. that is so not true. i asked siomai house myself. MASTER SIOMAI SUCKS. well, for me.gw

Yeah siomai house is really good, so good in fact that our tita already franchised two outlets. One is near St Jude and the other is located at Vista Verde in Cainta.

Masarap ang siomai sa henlin. Pero nothings beats homemade siomai. I've been making siomai for 3 months already. Got the recipe from my girlfriend.

to anonymous, employee ka ba ng master siomai or franchisee? kumusta ba ang management ng master siomai? accomodating bas sila and etc?

Halos araw-araw akong kumakain ng siomai. Mas preferred ko ang siomai ng Master Siomai kaysa Siomai House dahil iba ang lasa. Siksik sya sa laman di tulad sa Siomai House na parang siksik lang sa harina at wrapper. Basta masarap ang Master Siomai compared sa Siomai House.

Master Siomai's Japanese siomai is my favorite..super sarap talaga! I've tested Siomai House rin but the taste nothing compared to Master Siomai's...gusto kong matutunan paano ginagawa ung siomai nila..sarap talaga eh!

i agree with you femmelady. the best talaga siomai house. si master siomai walang ginawa kundi tumabi sa siomai house lagi tuloy silang mukhang kawawa. ang siomai house masarap at malinis, eh super yuckie. at di totoo na kumuha sila ng chili garlic sa master, authentic recipe un ng bernabe. so pathetic master copycat tlaga hahahah LONG LIVE SIOMAI HOUSE!!!

haha sarap kumain ng siomai pero madalas kami sa siomai house. kya pg nkkta nmn sa araneta station ng mrt mas madami tao sa siomai haus kesa sa master siomai. pero masarap dn nmn natry ko na kc un japanese siomai nla..

nung nag aaral ako pinakamakulit na nakainan kong siomai ay ung nilalako P2.50 kyot ng size.. tapos meron din fried siomai 5 isa malaki nasasayo kung i ffried nila...

now ang pnamalapit samin na naglalako ng siomai ay ung P11 (3pcs) pork & gulay at P22 (4pcs) shrmp and pork siomai

Tinikman mo pareho, puro wrapper ang siomai house. Mas OK ang MASTER SIOMAI mas malasa, sisik sa laman, maganda presentation and very affordable ang food hindi mukang cheap like sa siomai house.

Siomai lang pinagaawayan pa hahaha. Mga pinoy tlga. Anyway, I'm a cook and tried to taste them both. I can say that master siomai is far better than siomai house. But I don't suggest to eat them regularly, its better to make it homemade. They both have preservatives which is not good for the health.

of course, halos lahat naman ng siomai eh may preservatives.. ang alam ko sa mga ganito kasi meron silang hinahalo na extender which is not good for our body (ok lang sana kung singkamas ung extender, eh kaso hindi, kasi masyado silang maraming ginagawa at matrabaho pag singkamas ang ginamit).. mas maganda talaga kung homemade.. mas healthy and you can control the taste you want.. para sakin ang masarap lang dito ay yung sa master siomai na japanese siomai, at lahat ay walang kwenta na.. yun ay opinyon ko lang naman. HOMEMADE SIOMAI THE BEST!!! gawa nalng kayo sa bahay kesa pa-facebook facebook lang kayo dyan!!! waha!!

wag nyo na pag awayan ang master at siomai house. Try Happy Feet's siomai and their very own chicken feet recipe. Located along Asturias St. near UST. Para healthy ang competition, the best chicken feet in town....LOL

jade said...

the best pa din ang siomai house! :D

Anonymous said...

kung hanap nyo quality, taste and price..i recommend siomai house...compare nyo nlng mixed pork n shrimp ng master at ng siomai house kung kaninong siomai amg masarap...

misstache said...

The best siomai in the Philippines, aside from my Lola's, is in Causeway.

Next is Henlin.

If I were to rate what's better between the MRT siomais, Siomai House would get the point because their chili sauce is better but now the siomai taste is on the decline.

The Master Siomai however offers various flavors, I like the japanese siomai best.
