Who's fond of eating siomai here? There are a lot of siomai stall coming up in the malls, schools, etc. There's Siomai house, Shanghai Siomai, Master Siomai, etc. The three stall i've mention, i already tried it, and I like Siomai house more compared to other two. How about you guys, have you tried their siomai? do you know other siomai stall? Let's eat siomai.

we all love siomai. from me, my children, my sister and most of my friends. so if we eat out there would'nt be enough but we pay for too much. so i myself makes our own version of siomai. i steamed it and put it in the freezer. so when ever we want we can have some. i also have a bottle of chili garlic sauce that makes the siomai more tasty.

Yum... I just had a batch of siomai last night for dinner. I love this. I actually prefer steamed siomai to fried siomai. Those three that you mentioned are okay but there are better tasting siomai when you eat at chinese restaraunts. Fortune has good dimsum. There's also someone near our place who makes one of the best siomais I've tasted anywhere and it's home made.

Oooh I looove siomai! I love the ones from Henlin, Siomai house, and also those sold in Binondo shops that you have to steam before eating. I like the ones with the yellow-colored wrapper. I also like quail egg siomai, though I don't eat too much. My dad loves to eat at Chowking so whenever we're there, I only order siomai, because that's about the only thing I like there. We used to make our own at home, but really, we can't get it to taste like the ones from the stalls and restaurants! Hmmm I want their secret!!! LOL!

We both love siomai from siomai house. Their sauce is great. The spicy garlic plus soy sauce, is a great partner for siomai.

I have seen a lot of siomai stall, some I tried, some I am afraid to, one of my favorite is the one with Japanese siomai. it is actually a siomai still but instead of the usual wrapper it is wrapped in seaweeds. I really eating siomai and my kids too. I like the henlin siomai but sometimes theirs are with so much, but if there is one siomai that I would love to eat anytime, it is the siomai (and shrimp dumplings) in Mister Choi's at Robinson's Galleria.

I like siomai very much, just reading and writing about it at the moment is making me crave for some. hehehe I like Siomai House the most too. Because it is yummy and affordable. There are other dimsum stalls and restaurants that sell siomai but I find it a bit expensive compared to Siomai House.

I agree with you silverglint, Siomai House price for their siomai are very cheap compared to other stalls. Aside from that their siomai is really delicious. You can see siomai house almost every where now :D which means they are really serving delicious siomai.
