Shi Lin.

It was two of my favorite girls, Angela and Monica, who introduced me to Shi Lin late last year when we had a little get-together to celebrate Angela's 11th birthday. I've been back to Shi Lin three times since. It has become the place I go to when I want some comfort food. Like the two girls, I love their Xiao Long Bao.

I'm happy to say that all my Shi Lin visits have been wonderful and memorable. Had incredible meals and conversations there with some of my favorite people -- CBB, Edeena, Angela, Monica. And just recently, my friend Ces and I had lunch at Shi Lin, absolutely loving their food and each other's company.

Xiao Long Bao | 6 pcs: Php148 | 10 pcs: Php246
This is so good! The savory broth just bursts in your mouth.
A favorite. I always order this each time I visit.

Pork and Shrimp Shaomai | 6 pcs: Php178
This is good, too, but I find the dough a bit thick and chewy.

Pork and Shrimp Dumpling | 6 pcs: Php148
This tasted quite like the Shaomai except that its dough is thinner.

Chicken with Double-Boiled Chicken Soup | Php138
CBB, who is a noodle soup lover, gave this a two thumbs up!

Fried Chicken Chop | Php185
Crispy, well-done, and seasoned with taiwanese spices! Yum!

Noodles with Sesame and Peanut Sauce | Php145
A creamy noodle that tastes almost like peanut butter is all new to me.
I probably wouldn't order this on my next visit,
but it's worth a try if you haven't tried it yet.

Red Bean Pancake | Php88
Reb bean filling sandwiched between perfectly fried wrapper. A must-try.

It's not only the food that I love about Shi Lin. I also love the service --
quick, accurate, and fast.

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
