Dong Bei: Northern China Dumplings in Yuchenco Street

0 Comments

A Binondo food experience staple. This hole in the wall establishment in Chinatown favorite that is — Dong Bei.  15 years ago, Lisa Lee migrated to The Philippines and sought a new home in Manila together with her family. They hoped for a better life in a more democratic land and better education for her children.

A Chinese immigrant from Dong Bei, China brings a piece of her heritage comfort food to Binondo, Manila with these freshly-made Northern Chinese dumplings.

We arrived mid-afternoon on a Tuesday to avoid long lines. A bunch of women gathered around a table hand-rolling fresh dumpling dough and then efficiently hand-pressing each piece makes the wait more enticing. The quick and yet gentle stuffing of mixtures of minced vegetables and ground meat is like watching artisans create their masterpieces.

 

 

Should you find yourself in Manila Chinatown you can locate Dong Bei Dumplings in between old narrow buildings along Yuchengco Street. Where parking is close to none, faded signage and very small creates this overall knockout identity by which makes everyone want to discover this dumpling haven. Feel free to use Google Maps and asked local bystanders and they will gladly point you out where it is.
