DIMSUM BREAK: The Home of Good Chinese Food Now Open at THE ANNEX of SM City North Edsa 


To all siomai-eating pinoys: You thought you already know your dimsum?  For all you know, what you have tried might have been nothing but dimsum with extenders and with only soy sauce and kalamansi dip to make it flavorful. It’s a good thing that the
Dimsum people who inculcate the Dimsum eating habit to almost every
Cebuano conquers Metro Manila. Dimsum Break is now open at the third floor of
SM City North Edsa The Annex. at unbelievably affordable prices! I tell you, you’ll not only see but taste the big difference! In the picture above you can see the following:

  • Empress roll – the one with lettuce wrap, this is my favorite! I so love how the taste slide to my tongue in every bite! Two thumbs up for this! Very healthy! Makulay ang buhay kapag kumain ng gulay!
  • Shaomai – pork siomai so delicious!
  • Bacon Shaomai- the sinful bacon wrapped siomai, yum yum!
  • Quail’s egg siomai- siomai topped with quail egg 
  • Mushroom siomai – siomai with mushroom ano beh! Lol!

The above picture is only a steamer basket sampler. You can purchase them cafeteria style. Just point to what siomai you like to order and the friendly and attentive staff will serve them to you!

Crab Princers on stick are so meaty! Lasang lasa ang crab! I love it! On the side is the yummy spring roll.  The Spring rolls (P65) are cooked to a nice crisp, and the sweet and sour sauce it was drowned in was the perfect sauce for it.

Don’t forget to order the foundation of Dimsum Break, their core product -the Steamed Fried Rice. Super yummy! Hahanap hanapin mo talaga! Take note Dimsum Break doesn’t use MSG!

Cap your meal with the delicious coconut cream. Oh! Fall in love with their mango custard, very delicious, manggang mangga talaga!

As for the
ambiance, I am sure, like me, you’ll also be fascinated with Dimsum
Break’s Dimsum wall decor and steamer Basket lamps. It was pure genius!  I love it!

Plenty of other restaurants come and go over the decades in Cebu but Dimsum Break has very good food that stood the test of time. Today,
after a couple of decades of evolution, occasional menu additions,
tweaks here and there and a steady growth trend upwards, Dimsum Break
stands ingrained as a legitimate piece of Cebuano culture, as much a
part of the city’s landscape and history.

The movers and shakers of Dimsum Break. Thank you so much to Ms. Tish and Ms. Mae Ilagan for the invitation. The company started in 1969 as “Ding How” then became “Ding Qua Qua” then “Harbor City”, and the most recent, “Dimsum Break”, whatever name they use the Cebuanos will always love their Sweet and Sour Pork and Steamed Rice. They are now operating a total of 16 branches in Cebu. Having them at SM Annex is heaven’s answer to all Cebuanos who are now based here in Metro Manila.

One could never have enough of Dimsum Break’s offerings! Mapababalik balik ka sa mura at sarap! Try it, you’ll love it!

Dimsum Break is located at the 3rd floor of SM City North Edsa The Annex.
