How was the 50-peso meal? Well, the dumplings were good enough; they were meaty and weren't bland. The wanton wrapper though was falling apart. But hey, I love dumplings so I didn't really care that much. The fried rice? Delicious! It wasn't exactly teriyaki (it didn't have the right sweetness) but I loved the garlicky flavor (I know: garlicky?!). The soup? It was tasty, had bits of meat and a hint of freshness from the spring onions. Twas perfect for revving the appetite.
