One of the food items popular among Cebuanos is the siomai or Chinese pork dumplings. This delectable dish has developed a following among Cebuanos. One particular siomai that has made waves in the Queen City of the South is the Siomai sa Tisa.
The popularity of the dish was so high, Tisa barangay officials used it to promote their barangay through the Siomai Festival. The festival promoted the barangay as the “Siomai Capital of Cebu.” The officials are also banking on the festival to bring in investments into the barangay.
While there are many stalls selling “D’ Original Siomai sa Tisa,” nothing can beat eating at its source in Tisa itself. It will not be difficult to find it since both jeepneys and taxi drivers know where it is. You can simply hop into a taxi or jeepney headed to Labangon. You can ask the driver to drop you off at the stall.
