Dumpling Fest at Mr. Ching Cuisine
Hana yori dango
“Dumplings are better than flowers.”
There comes a time in everyone’s life when the craving for dumplings is so strong. So strong, in fact that the siomai sold by vendors in pushcarts near schools and also some Baguio neighborhoods is not going to be enough. (Affordable as they are, they’re tiny. There’s much …or rather, little to be said about your choices for dumplings, too. *ngahaha. Oh, not unless, you’re happy with tokneneng like the delicious ones from the store in front of UB. Ohhh, wow, major craving.)
When this craving to eat nothing but dimsum or dumplings hits you, a great place to go in Baguio would be Mr. Ching Cuisine at the Baguio Palace Hotel. This is a Chinese restaurant that you can rely on for dimsum galore (and other delectable dishes, we’ll have to try those sometime).
In our August dumpling fest, Race and I had a seasoned attendant to take care of us. He was quick to take our orders and quick to deliver what we needed. He even anticipated our needs like bringing us glasses of water without us even asking for it. (Manong for the win!) You just have to adore the professionals. =D
Two months after that, on our second visit, a young attendant was assigned to our table. He wasn’t as good as the other guy *sigh. He gave our dimsum orders one at a time (when I was so giddy to take a photo of a tall stack of steamer thingies). But anyway, there was nothing that could dampen our happy mood – the mood set by the shrimp tail, Chinese coated, snowball dumplings, machang and spring rolls.
If you’re hungrier than what four or five varieties of dumplings can satisfy, you can order some Chinese fried rice (oh yeah, more of those rice mixes that can double up as an entrée.) We got the Hong Kong rice which was wonderful. Everything else depends on how well you mix your dip to complete the flavors for the perfect meal.
A successful dumpling festival! It was a nice and filling meal for P470 for the three of us (Beth, Race and me). The next time we crave for dumplings, we’re lugging Karla along. (Eeeeiii, I could just imagine the steamer stack then. Oh my gosh, I want to go now!)
X marks Mr. Ching Cuisine for good food (delightful dumplings) in Baguio.

Search for Good Baguio Food
X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
