Weekend Food Tripping at: Maki Haus

Happy Sunday AMW Friends!
Where are you off for lunch or dinner?  Are you dining out or cooking at home?  Whatever your plans are, make sure to eat right and eat whatever your body and heart desires! :)

Over the week, I have been craving for flavorful dishes and there's nothing Mr. AMW could do but go for what my tummy says! hehehe

Since I'm usually around Manila area, we make it a point to try as many restaurants as we can!  One restaurant that got a seal of approval from my parents-in-law is called Maki Haus ---> I did not invent the spelling, it was really spelled that way!  *lol*

Php105.00 (approx $2.50) for small serving
Php130.00 (approx $3.00) for bigger serving

We ordered the bigger size of course as we always say: "There's always take outs!"  *laughs*

 In the metro, I find there are only a few restaurants who serve good Maki/Maki-Mi.  I'm glad to announce that Maki Haus did deliver!  But first of all, what's Maki or Maki-Mi?

Maki is a dish where you find sliced pork cut into small pieces, seasoned and tenderized with starch.  The extra starch, eggs and onions give a smooth yet thick texture.  You can opt for just the slices of pork or you can go for Maki-mi which are slices of pork with noodles.  Best ordered if you're really hungry.   

Beef Wanton Mami
Php135.00 (approx $3.21)
I wasn't impressed with this dish as the soup was bland and the noodles were too soft.  The beef lacks taste and I think the best part of this noodle soup is the wanton.  We ended up transferring the noodles to our Maki dish (above).  We're creative that way *winks*.

 Lumpia Shanghai
Php125.00 (approx $3.00)
This order came in super late!  The restaurant must've nearly forgotten about it or they were really busy as it was a full house that night!  So far, it's okay if you're craving for fried lumpia that night but my favorite will always be the one from Lam Tin!

Another must try, give their Hipon Rebusado (Shrimp Rebusado) a try!  One piece costs Php70.00 (approx $1.70) , we had 3 orders for to-go and so far, it's good!

The restaurant accepts cash payment only.  No service charge included in the bill.  Service was not that good as our Lumpia Shanghai came in too late!  We were done eating our Maki and Noodle Soup and had to follow up.

  1. malapit lang kami sa banawe,lagi namin nadadaanan maki house when im craving,i always ask my husband to give me a ride,kasi makakahanap ka talaga ng food hehe..but the resto that im missing most is the Han Pao.ang layo na eh

    1. I wonder why our paths do not cross pa! We're mostly within the area lang ! heheheh

      BTW, if you missed Han Pao, ok lang, look for LAM TIN! They serve the Han Pao Noodle Feast that you probably miss! And their other dishes are great! Inexpensive pa!

  2. i love noodle soups but haven't tried eating maki mi.

    1. Try it, and don't forget to add black vinegar! It's the "kick" we want! :D

  3. Aw i want to try it after reading this post, too bad im from batangas, need to schedule a weekend to visit maki haus. :(

    1. Aww..well if you did visit the place, don't forget to tell me what you think ha? :)

    1. I know what you mean, it's a nice comfort food next to my favorite noodle soup!
