MAI WEI FANG: Chinese Northern Style Bread and Sheng Jian Bao!

MAI WEI FANG meaning wheat mill room is a fast-casual Chinese restaurant serving Northern Chinese style dishes that mainly focus on wheat flour ingredients.

Famed for introducing the first Sheng Jian Bao (pan-fried pork soup dumpling) in the Philippines, this Shanghainese version is similar to Xiao Long Bao but is much meatier with a thicker dough compared to its counterpart.

Besides Sheng Jian Bao, you’ll also find Chinese-style pancakes, doughnuts, and fried chicken rice meals.

If you’re curious to get a taste of something different, check out Mai Wei Fang…
