Dim sum (also known as "dian xin" in Mandarin or "tiam sim" in Fukien dialect) is a great selection of freshly cooked Chinese food served in small portions. They are usually served in small steam baskets or small round plates. These baskets or plates are then displayed on a food cart, where customers can easily choose from.
JY Dimsum House was founded by a Filipino-Chinese, who wanted to share the joy of eating Chinese food to the locals of Iligan City. With the experience of opening similar restaurants in Cebu and Ozamiz, JY Dimsum House finally opened its doors to the public last September 24, 1994.
The Bola-bola Siopao has been the favorite among Iliganons. The different varieties of all-meat Siomai (dipped with the oh-so-delicious! chili sauce) has also proven that only JY Dimsum offers the authentic, best tasting, best value for money dim sum. Apart from dim sums, JY Dimsum also offers full meal dishes that will surely bring you to the streets of China.
In 2009, JY Dimsum introduced the local Chinese fare to the Ateneo community. One of the cooks was sent to Manila to serve their very own variation of rice toppings to students. Its value for money and familiar Chinese aroma has definitely made the hungry students happy.
