Budget friendly dimsum at Dimsum Break

I love dimsum! Acquainted to some delicious Chinese specialties since I was young, I have thing when it comes to dimsum -- they are definitely one of the food in my comfort foods list, which includes some Ilocano, Korean, and Japanese foods.

Recently, Me and my friend Mhel (half of the CertifiedFoodies.com duo) visited Dimsum Break at SM City North EDSA Annex for lunch and to finally check out Dimsum Break's first branch in Metro Manila.

As this is their first branch outside South of the Philippines, I was expecting something unique with their concept, and I am impressed on how their place looked like. You will be greeted at the entrance with this giant board menu.

Interiors take cue from what they sell, which is Dimsum. I love the light fixtures with bamboo steamers, as well as the wall accents and ambient warm-white lighting, it really sets the mood for some dimsum break.

Although the interiors look chic, it's still a fast food place - which means it is self-service system here. You get to choose & get your dimsum from one end of the counter and pay it on the other end, as well as order additional made-to-order foods like their steamed fried rice and hakao. Lines were short when we visited, because it was a weekday.

Now let's get on with the foods! We ordered a variety of dimsums to try that day, all their fried and steamed dimsum are only 65php per serving, there are about 25+ kinds of dimsum you could try here.

Fried Shrimp Balls
Quail's Egg Shaomai
Bacon Shaomai
I forgot what this one is. TEEHEE
Steamed Hakao
Out of all the dimsum tried that day, my instant favorite would be the Bacon Shaomai. I love everything with bacon in them, so I'll be biased and choose Bacon Shaomai as my favorite from the bunch of dimsums we tried. We also tried their famous steamed fried rice (68php), it comes in 3 variants - Beef, Yang Chow, & Original - it's basically fried rice topped with this delicious sauce with meat.

I ordered the original one and was surprised that the bowl is actually big, I finished a bowl plus some dimsum and I am stuffed! I'm pretty sure rice lovers like my brother would love to try this one.

Aside from dimsums and steamed fried rice, Dimsum Break also serves noodles & soups, vegetable side dishes, and desserts. We were too stuffed to try them, but I'm hoping to try the other items on their menu on my next visit.

If you're craving for some quick and delicious dimsum, I recommend checking out Dimsum Break to satisfy those craving. For their food, price, location, and service, we're giving Dimsum Break 4.5 glasses and a big burp! Yum!

Make sure to try them and tell me what you think, Dimsum Break is located at the 3/F SM City North EDSA - The Annex, Quezon City. Store hours are same with the mall hours 10am to 9pm on weekdays and 10am to 10pm on weekends. Like Dimsum Break on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter!
