R.MA MON LUK Restaurant And its Famous MAMI & SIOPAO

Whenever I visit the Church of Quiapo and after attending the mass on Sunday. At Ma Mon Luk Restaurant, I will always stop to satisfy my cravings for their famous Mami and Siopao servings. It is a famous Chinese restaurant located at 545 - 549 Quezon Blvd. 307 Corner Gonzalo Puyat Street, Quiapo Manila. 

It was named after Ma Mon Luk, a Chinese immigrant, and is now considered one of Manila's oldest restaurants. He is the creator of the well-known Mami (a noodle soup) and Siopao (steamed bun).

The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend here in Manila. Inside the restaurant, you will see picture - frame newspapers showing the achievements of the restaurants. It has been featured locally and internationally because of its scrumptious unique taste of their mami.

They open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Sunday and have another branch located at 412 Quezon Avenue, Tatalon, Quezon City. But the one I always visit to eat with my friends is in Quiapo, Manila.

The place is quite crowded with long queues and is being visited by foreigners and local people because of the savory noodle soup (mami) and their best-tasting siopao (steamed bun) that you will surely want!

Some people have bad feedback about the customer service of waiters in the restaurant, but based on my personal experience, they are really busy and usually do multiple tasks just to accommodate the endless entry of customers, especially the restaurant can only accommodate about 50 customers and you really have to wait for available seats.

If you want to avoid long queues, you can order via telephone (02) 733 7596 because they also offer deliveries. The average cost for two people is Php. 550.00 

Overall, I will give this restaurant 8.5/10 ratings for the mouthwatering siopao, which is my favorite and delightful noodle soup (mami). I'm sure I'll go back with my friends!
