This is no different in Cebu, Philippines. Harbour City Dimsum Restaurant is part of a group of Chinese-inspired restaurants that has caught on the Cebuanos love for Chinese food.

My Five (5) Favorite Dishes at Harbour City Dimsum in Cebu City, Philippines 

I have listed my favorite dishes I usually order when I eat at Harbour City Dimsum Restaurant and they are:

Steamed Fried Rice 

The Filipino rice-eater that I am, I always order at least a bowl or two (2) of their steamed fried rice. It's my favorite among their rice bowls. This steamed rice bowl is topped with a delicious serving of fried pork and shrimp sprinkled with green peas and served with a rich and thick sauce.

Steamed Hakao 

Steamed shrimp balls in an egg-based wrapper served on top of a bed of carrots sounds pretty good to me. Better than shao mai (siomai) I should say.
