It was a Saturday but my beloved still has to go work. So, I accompanied her as she goes to her workplace. However, our stomach grumbled so we decided to take our lunch first before she enters her office. Since we are sated with Jollibee, McDonalds or other usual fast foods; she took me to one of her favorite food stall and that is the Pao Tsin Dim Sum shop located inside the mall.

Pao Tsin Dim Sum, as the name implies, sells dim sum with rice so it is a perfect place for us to eat our lunch. Pao Tsin Dim Sum offers different kinds of Chinese dim sum that I forgot to remember. What I do remember is the wantan dim sum that we ordered. My beloved ordered the Shrimp Wantan Dim Sum..

For those who do not know, wantan (or more popularly spelled as wanton, wonton, and wuntun) is a type of dim sum commonly found in Chinese restaurants. I remembered eating a wantan in Chowking when I ordered their Beef Wantan Noodles. The usual fillings of wantan are minced pork, shrimp or oysters, ginger and onion, sesame oil and soy sauce.
If my beloved ordered the shrimp wantan I, on the other hand, became curious on what shark tastes like so I ordered the Shark Wantan Dim Sum..

Well, in the photo, the shrimp wantan dim sum looks similar to the shark wantan dim sum. The difference is found within the wantan’s wrapper.
So, what can I say for my shark wantan dim sum? Well, I like it. I thought that shark tastes bad. The shark wantan dim sum tastes way better than the siomai that I buy from Siomai House.
For 35 pesos per meal, I think eating at Pao Tsin is not that bad. You already have three pieces of wantan dim sum, then rice, plus soy sauce for the dim sum. However, drinks are not included in the 35-peso meal so we just bought bottled water at SM Hypermarket.
Well, I guess this is bad news for the sharks. They have another fan of their dishes. :-P
