Dimsum break with friends

Love that the dimsum is served in those containers
 A friend of ours from Canada was coming home for a bit and wanted to meet up with us. We were supposed to go to our traditional meeting place in Megamall but we were intrigued by another friend's ecstatic posts about Dimsum Break, which is a famous restaurant in Cebu that had finally opened a branch in SM North Annex.
 Dimsum break in Manila is a cafeteria-style resto with an array of dimsum varieties behind a glass case from which you select your meal and the famous "original steamed rice"
Apparently, this was different from the steamed rice we have here which is just plain cooked rice, to the consternation of Cebuanos who were expecting rice topped with a mix of meat and shrimps in a savory sauce that was a meal in itself.
 Everything was great and very tasty but we may have ordered too much as we had a lot left over even after so many hours of eating and laughing over stories old and new. But our host didn't mind because their prices are very affordable! Dimsum orders were just P65 while the steamed rice was just P68! These are very student-friendly prices so it's no wonder this place is a hit!
 And there are so many other items on the menu we haven't even tried! Lomi / Pancit canton/ Wanton noodles for P80, siopao for P38, desserts for P55... It's just a pity that it's a bit far from my place. But lucky for everyone else in Quezon City!
