Steamed Shrimp Dumpling


from Hai Shin Lou

at home

-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-

with the Family

Hai Shin Lou, one of our favorite Chinese restaurants, is back open for takeout.  Limited menu.  As with other places, last order at 1700.

Our last family dinner in a Chinese restaurant had been at Hai Shin Lou, 140 days ago (see 10.349 Assorted Fresh Mushroom with Home Made Bean Curd).


To make it more interesting, we played The Secret Food Thing (see 10.308 Sukiyaki Beef with Golden Mushroom).

W ordered Sweet Cord with Crabmeat Soup – again.
IZ ordered Sweet & Sour Pork – again, even though he had declared to do something different the next time.
I ordered Braised Homemade Bean Curd with Vegetables.
DJ ordered Dried Hofan with Beef.

The steamed shrimp dumplings (har gao) were a bonus item.

For some reason, the food wasn’t that great – maybe we weren’t that hungry at 1730 – but we were grateful to eat something other than BY ME, BY W, or fast food.
