Hap Chan Tea House and Restaurant


Hap Chan started out as a small tea house in Manila in 1997 and now it has slowly grown, even reaching as far as Tacloban in central Visayas. They offer Filipino-Chinese favorites such as mami, lugaw, and dimsum.

I’ve first tasted their shrimp dimsum when I was in high school and the taste is simply incomparable. That’s the reason why I won’t ever be satisfied buying at dimsum stalls around the city.

I swear, Hap Chan Restaurant serves one of the best-tasting shrimp siomai! Your 80 pesos is worth it.

Rice Congee is a type of rice porridge which is usually served for sick people and infants. The Filipino term for congee is “lugao” (lugaw/lugau). You can easily differentiate the two from their toppings.
