Every time the Chinese Dimpol and I go to Binondo for CHINESE NEW YEAR, we always get a lot of recommendations to try out TASTY DUMPLINGS. As much as we wanted to though, we cannot have our meal there because not only is it not in our Ongpin route during CHINESE NEW YEAR, but it also gets SUPER CROWDED on the special day.
When THE FOOD ALPHABET scheduled a BINONDO FOOD TRIP, I'm thankful that he included TASTY DUMPLINGS in our itinerary. This was a meal we have long been waiting for and we're glad to discover that it deserves all of the hype.
So YAY! We finally got to try TASTY DUMPLINGS! Check out how it made us fall in love with it and got us craving for more!!!
We're going to TASTY DUMPLINGS!!!
TASTY DUMPLINGS is located at the other side of the famous Binondo Church.
It's a small eatery typical of restaurants in the area. You might not notice it without the big yellow sign.
Just look for the bike! He he he he he!
Inside TASTY DUMPLINGS!!!
There's a stairway to the second floor for more dining space. Good thing that we were there early (around 10:30am) that there we were one of the first diners there.
Since this was part of our BINONDO FOOD TRIP, meaning there would be more food to come later, THE FOOD ALPHABET just ordered 2 of their special dishes just so that we could have a taste of it.

On the walls of TASTY DUMPLINGS, they boasted of famous celebrities who have visited the place.
I'm sure TASTY DUMPLINGS peeps became hysterically happy that my ACTUAL face was on their walls.
YOOO HOO!!! FOOD IS HERE!
THE FOOD ALPHABET got a plate of Fried Dumplings (P99.00) and these were served piping hot!!!
The fried nuggets were gold and not greasy. If we're not scared of having scalded fingers, we would have all grabbed a piece!!!!
The fried dumplings were GLORIOUS!!!! It was crispy on the outside and so meaty juicy on the inside. Soooo appetizing especially with the chili dip!!!!
Somebody became so happy like a Chinese dumpling!
Of course when you're at TASTY DUMPLINGS, THOU SHALT NOT forget to order their delicious Pork Chop Rice (P125.00).
Di I mention that it's GINORMOUS??? Yup it is!!! It is almost the size of my head, and I've got a BIG HEAD!
When we told people how we enjoyed the Pork Chop rice in TASTY DUMPLINGS, many said we should've went for the Pork Chop in saucy noodles. Since we have a lot of noodles in the itinerary, we went for the rice as our carb accompaniment.
At least that's something to go back for.
Ooooh lala! Crispy fried pork chop!
All this for only P125.00??? THAT'S UNBELIVABELS!!!!!
What we loved about the TASTY DUMPLINGS Pork Chop is that besides having a crispy breading, the meat inside was tender and saucy. Yes, SAUCY!!!
If you look closer, you would see that brown juices glistening with the meat making it more flavorful. I don't know about during lunch hour but when we had this pork chop this morning, there there was almost a burst of the sauce when we cut it. I wonder how they did that!!!!
ERICJAZ FOODIES with THE FOOD ALPHABET in TASTY DUMPLINGS!!!!
We shared this platter of pork chop and for 3 dieting adults, it's more than enough!
See the juices????
In no time...
Our first stop at TASTY DUMPLINGS for our BINONDO FOOD TRIP was really a good start! Too bad we can't each as much as we wanted to because we had a full schedule that day. Oh well! At least we'll have more reasons to return (with a vengeance) to TASTY DUMPLINGS!!!
And I'll finally get to try that tossed noodles!!!! YOHOOO!
