Snack time at Ma Mon Luk

Amongst the many noodle houses in Quezon City, Ma Mon Luk is one of the oldest.  I remember having gone there once back in my college days.  (Don’t ask the year. Lol! It was many decades past).  Weeks ago, hubby and I accidentally passed by the place while looking for a snack.  The food offered hasn’t changed much.  Mami and Siopao is the most saleable treat.  We ordered a pair for hubby and pancit canton for me plus beef siomai.   I think they aren’t as appetizing anymore like the olden days.  But at least our hunger was relieved.  If I have to rate the food we had from 1 to 5, 5 being the highest, I’d give them a 3.  Just average it is. Well, Ma Mon Luk has seen better days.  And those days are apparently gone!

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend everyone!

i've always wanted to try ma mon luk but somehow never had a chance.

did u know that the word ma-mi came from ma mon luk? i think mi is chinese for noodles while the owner's name is ma, hence ma-mi. just a trivia i've heard. not sure if its true.

Hi Noel!
Oh, thanks for that trivia. I think I also have heard of that before. It's probably true kasi very Pinoy ang mami eh.

Salamat sa pagdalaw! Ingat!

Siomai!! Dumplings ang tawag ng bata dito...peborit nya yan. Ganun din ang Pancit Canton na Lucky Me.

Kala ko nagbakasyon ka na sa Mars Ate Beng eh...kasi awala ka bigla.

Heniwey...happy weekend! TGIF pa lang dito pero as good as weekend na din, di ba?

Hi Huling!
Can't believe na type din pala ni pretty princess ang dumplings. Onga 'no? Ano nga ba ang difference nun sa dimsum?

Nagbakasyon lng from blogging. Alam mo naman... walang alalay dito kaya trying hard mag-update ng blog.

Salamat sa pagpasyal dito Huling! See you around. Happy TGIF! said...

Wow Ma Mon Luk, this was my favourite eatery during my college days, Love their mami and siopao. The serving is hefty as well, I usually eat the mami together with the siopao sauce drenched over the noodles. You bring back a lot of memories.

@angsarap: Nice to know that you too had once enjoyed Ma Mon Luk's mami and siopao years back. Haha.. that was quite an unusual way of eating mami. Just can't imagine the taste!

Thanks for dropping by Raymund!
