Dimsum Break has just officially opened its very first branch in Manila located at the 3rd floor of SM Annex of SM City North EDSA with its grand launch a few days ago. The ribbon-cutting ceremonies were attended by corporate guests, members of the media and bloggers. There was also a dragon dance to drive away the evil spirits, and the best is the free-tasting of their very popular fried and steamed dim sums.

Dimsum Break takes its concept from the family’s first venture in fast food business, the Ding How Dimsum House. Established in 1969, the brand pioneered the concept of all-day dim sum dining in Cebu.

In 1996, Dimsum Break was launched in response to a challenge posed by a mall operator’s offer of serving the dining needs of mall’s late night clientele at the bowling area and movie cinemas. With an initial seating capacity of not more than 40 patrons, the small area made it difficult to apply the serving method of HCDHCI’s other brands at the time which involved dim sum carts.

A year after the launch, Dimsum Break expanded in Metropolitan Cebu. Branches opened in Gaisano Fiesta Mall in Tabunok in 1997, Mango Square Mall and GMC Arcade in 2002, Elizabeth Mall in 2003, Ayala Center Cebu and Colon Street in 2004 and Banilad Town Center in 2005. A new breed of Dimsum Break stores opened in Parkmall and Avila Building in General Maxilom Avenue in 2012, and Pacific Mall in Mandaue City in 2011.

“This is our first fast food chain in Luzon, but including Visayas region, it is already our 16th branch. We are optimistic that this number will continue to increase. Our confidence is based on the significant investment and development we have put in the past five years to support our growing branch network,” shares HCDHCI Marketing Manager Steven Kokseng,

I would truly recommend this restaurant to all my friends, relatives, colleagues and acquaintances….and would definitely always drop by when I’m near the are. In fact, it would be my first choice when I’m in the mood for some Chinese cuisine. Thank you Dimsum Break for setting up a branch in Manila.
