Dipolog City: Siomai and Siopao at Classic Dimsum

DIPOLOG CITY, Zamboanga del Norte - We wanted to visit the Provincial Capitol of Zamboanga del Norte, but unfortunately, the building was being renovated. Across the capitol, we were surprised to see a Chinese restaurant, Classic Dimsum.

It was 4:00pm and it was just the right time for an afternoon merienda. We ordered Steamed Siomai (four pieces at Php 30.00) and Bola Siopao (Php22.00). Though there was really nothing extraordinary about them, they were good enough to satisfy your craving for authentic Chinese dimsum.

They also serve noodles, congee, rice toppings, hot pots, and other Chinese classic dishes. According to the staff, their best sellers are their seafood dishes, especially the crab dishes. The restaurant is owned by a Chinese businessman based in Dipolog.

When we were about to finish our dimsum, two "politician-looking" men escorted by four armed soldiers entered the restaurant. They seem to be frequent customers of Classic Dimsum as they already know what to order even without looking at the menu. Their order also included steamed siomai.

This is a joint post between Pinas Muna and Chinoy Edition.
