I remembered my childhood days with Ma Mon Luk’s Siopao because Mom always had some siopao as her pasalubong to us – her kiddos! – whenever she’s been in Quiapo. And, it’s been a while since I last visited and ate at Ma Mon Luk Restaurant in Quiapo, Manila City. So, when P and I attended mass last last Friday at Quiapo Church we see to it that we had our merienda in Ma Mon Luk.
Years have passed and yet everything stays the same. The taste of siopao paired with flavorful soup still the best in town. The mami with lots of toppings still taste good. The interior design of the restaurant looks old but then the taste of the foods they were serving are still succulent as the time goes by.
Three generations have succeeded already since the Ma Mon Luk’s death on September 21, 1961. If you are a food tripper then I would highly suggest that you have to try Ma Mon Luk’s Mami and Siopao, a restaurant that is already written in the history and still stands out because of its consistent scrumptious taste.
As of this writing, Ma Mon Luk has only two branches – Quezon Boulevard, Quiapo and Banawe, Quezon Ave.
Ooops, it’s raining... Ma Mon Luk’s Mami is absolutety perfect at this moment. ☺
Have a fun and great weekend!
