Annoying things about life #4: when douches pretend that they’re better than you just because they write a “socially informed” blog about politics that no one reads.

or when they think that they’re hot and that you’re totally into them when they’re in reality just plain ugly.

Xiao Long Bao at Suzhou Dimsum

I’ve been craving for xiao long bao for quite a while now. It’s this kind of dimsum with a skin like a siomai, only thicker, and filled with soup and meat. It’s really good, mind, and I haven’t had any for a while. A friend of mine recently went foodtripping in Binondo, so the craving just intensified after that. But I haven’t had the time nor the money to go to Malate just for exploding siopao, so I had to content myself with crappy siomai and siopao at the Caf to keep my cravings at bay. :|

But my parents visited this afternoon (yay!) and my dad decided to take us all to Suzhou Dimsum, all the way in Malate, for some dumplings. YAAAAAAAY!

Obviously, I was excited. I’ve had a really long list of cravings since the school year started, i.e.:

1. Xiao Long Bao

2. Pork Chop Noodles at Tasty’s (I love their pickles! I usually hate them, but theirs are just so.. tasty. HAHAHA)

3. Fried and fresh lumpia from Max’s.

4. Fresh lumpia from Everybody’s in Pampanga

5. My aunt’s fresh lumpia (don’t know how she makes that stuff, it is SENSATIONAL. I seriously have to ask for the recipe.)

6. Lengua de Gato from Good Shepherd in Baguio (I’ve had some from the caf, but it just lacks something… Nothing lives up to Good Shepherd’s standards for me.)

It’s a pretty long list, and I’m really happy to FINALLY be able to cross something off. Obviously it’ll just be replaced soon enough by something else, but at least for now, I won’t be bothered by any craving for xiao long bao anymore. :)) I’m satiated for at least until September. HAHAHAHA.

Anyway, after braving the traffic for about an hour, we FINALLY sit down at Suzhou, surrounded by other diners who were jabbering away in straight Chinese. The ambiance… well, there was no ambiance, quite frankly. There were chairs, tables, airconditioners, basically only the necessities for setting up a restaurant, but there was obviously no effort to improve the interiors to something aesthetically pleasing. Maybe they were so confident in their food that they didn’t even bother. In my opinion, they were right. HAHAHAHA.

We ordered the Xiao Long Bao (of course!), some kuchay dumplings, filled with a kind of vegetable, and some noodles. The noodles weren’t really a standout, I still honestly think that Tasty’s or Ling Nam has better noodles, but the dumplings were just legen-there’s no other word i can use, just wait for it!-dary. (HAHAHA BARNEY)

The exploding siopao had a very tasty broth. Also, I noted that it is imperative to poke it with your chopstick before you eat it, because the term “exploding siopao” means that you know, it actually EXPLODES. I tried to bite into mine without poking it first, and it exploded all over my clothes. Not only is it extremely messy, it is also HOT. :| Good thing I brought an extra shirt. On the bright side, however, IT WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD. The skin isn’t too thick, the soup is spot-on in terms of taste, and even just the experience of eating it was enough for me. HAHAHA.

Another standout was the Kuchay dumpling. It was also very well made, with the same skin as the exploding siopao, but the filling didn’t taste as kuchay-y as I wanted. Hmm, maybe it’s just a matter of preference. Kuchay DOES taste rather strange, after all. But it was still very good. The sauce that came with it, some sort of soy-vinegar-pickled ginger mixture, didn’t really go well with it. I chose to eat mine alone.

The service was excellent as well, with complimentary tea served by the time you sit down. I’m not really big on tea, but their tea was just so calming, and it cleared all the oil away, leaving me feeling fresher than a garden rose. It even made my headache go away! HAHA. 

I’m really looking forward to my next visit. :D
