We had a quick lunch at D’ Original Maki Haus in Quezon City a few days ago… specifically December 17, 2010.
We had two orders of Siomai (P45 for 2 pieces) to start us off. Not bad, but I like Manosa’s siomai better.
Then we had Gohyong (P80, pictured above), which is sliced Kikiam. It’s made of a mix of ground pork and vegetables wrapped in beancurd wrapper then deep fried. It’s delicious and it goes so well with the sweet and sour sauce and atchara (pickled vegetables). I love the way that it’s meaty in the middle and crunchy on the sides. 🙂
For my main dish, I decided on Maki Mi (P110 for regular size, pictured above) which is the specialty here. Maki Mi is breaded pork cooked in thick soup with egg noodles. Maki Haus is quite generous with the Maki.
It was okay. It tasted like the typical Maki Mi, what I didn’t like was that the pork pieces weren’t as tender and lean as I would’ve wanted. There were parts with tough tendon (litid) which I don’t appreciate at all.
All in all though, it’s a nice quick fix when you’re hungry and want something fast that doesn’t roll out of a fast food joint. They have set menus for fixed number of people too, starting at P600 for 4 people.
