A full lunch at Dimyum

Dimyum is one of those restaurants that I have always wanted to try in Obrero.

Last week, Me and my friend, Jenny, were invited have lunch at Dimyum, which offers Asian dishes.

The meal kicked off with the Quail Egg Siomai (P80), which I think was really good. Most of the siomai I had were usually from fastfood chains so having Dimyum’s siomai was a real treat for me. I also enjoyed it with their sweet chili garlic sauce.

Next we had Kueh Pie Tee (P140), which is a pastry tart filled with sweet sliced vegetables. I find it to be really good. My friend had a couple of cups while I gobbled up the rest.

Next we were served the Shrimp Laksa (P220), which was mildly spicy. It was really good! I really enjoyed this dish. I think what made the dish special was the coconut milk. According to the owner, Alec Jovero, they get fresh coconut milk everyday.

Then we were served the Shrimp Balls (P220), Tempura (P220), and Malaysian Curry Chicken (P220), which are all new dishes on their menu. I ordered a cup of Hainanese Rice (P55) to go with the meal.

The Shrimp Balls was good. It was crispy on the outside while its filling was delicious.

The Tempura was also good.


The Malaysian Chicken Curry was wonderful. It was flavorful and the chicken was tender.

I also have to note how most of the dishes were beautifully plated.

In terms of pricing, the food here is reasonably priced. Dimyum offers mainly Chinese dishes but also include other Asian dishes.

For some dishes you have the option to have it mild spicy, spicy, and very spicy. Personally, I would have wanted to order a spicy Shrimp Laksa and Malaysian Curry Chicken but opted for a mild spicy because I easily get full eating spicy food since I will be drinking a lot of water.

In terms of service, it was fairly good based on what I have observed from waiters serving other tables. They were fairly efficient and fast in attending the needs of the customers. Food was also served within 15 to 20 minutes. Anyway, there was a light crowd during lunch time when we visited so maybe that factored in to the service I observed when I visited the place.

Overall we enjoyed our lunch here. The food was definitely good as we enjoyed every bite of it.

I think this would be a great place to go for families and friends who want to enjoy a hearty meal.
