Weekend Eating - Siomai

Happy new week, foodies! It's Monday once again, time to talk about something I ate from the previous weekend:


Last Saturday, my sister and I went to the market because I wanted to buy some shrimps for the Ampalaya Guisado I planned to serve for dinner. Before we had our usual soft ice cream fix, she mentioned she wanted to eat some siomai. I told her there's a kiosk of Master Siomai somewhere, but she told me she wanted to try those cheap ones sold per kilo, so I walked with her to this one stall in the market that sells that and other processed meat foods.

It wasn't our first time to try it, actually. In 2009, I first tried it and it tasted okay, so we had no problems about it. For 20 pesos per 1/4 kilo, it was a good buy; it tasted like regular siomai, but of course I have to agree it was more extenders than actual meat. Sister liked it - she said she would buy again this coming week, and until I learn how to do it, I guess I will just have to go with it, too. Siomai is one of the foods I really hope to cook, but I just couldn't get right.

Yeah, I will try again.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
