Masuki is one of those classic restaurants in Binondo which already existed before my parents (Right now, my parents are senior citizens) Yet Masuki seems to attract customers both old and young.

Here’s their menu:

Although the price of some of their noodles are more expensive, it only means you’ll be getting a lot more meat on your noodles. The prices of their siopao and siomai are also more expensive than your usual dimsum but wait until you see the size of their servings.

My friends and I ordered the following:

Original Mami (Special) – Php 130

Asado Mami (Special) – Php 130

Wonton Mami (Special) – Php 170 (more expensive than the above two but look how many the wontons are.)

2 orders of 2 pieces Siomai – Php 35 per piece total of 140.

Their siomai might be one of the biggest you’ll ever see. As one guy wrote in a review:

And instead of the usual soy sauce plus calamansi, you can try what my friend Aimee usually does:  Their special asado sauce (free for every order of their noodles) + calamansi. Since their sauce is thick, you’ll really taste the calamansi flavor wrapped around their siomai. Yum!

Every order of their noodles comes with their famous special asado sauce. Eating Masuki noodles without this is like eating spaghetti without tomato sauce.

What we usually do is put some sauce on the noodles before we eat it. Some might like to mix it directly into the soup, but we think this approach will lessen the flavor of the sauce. Anyways, it’s up to your liking.

Overall, Masuki is one of the place you will really enjoy here at Binondo. It’s one of the oldest and yet still one of the most famous restaurants in Binondo. Delicious food, huge servings and maybe the exotic smell of the soup all at the right price is I believe some of the reasons that makes this restaurant stand the test of time.

Here are also some of the many reviews you can find circulating the internet:
