Have you ever heard this food called Sipa? No, its not the famous Filipino sport game sipa or the tagalog word meaning for “to Kick”. But it’s a fried dimsum who looks like the “Sipa”, A thing being used to play the famous Pinoy sport game.

I have tried this Sipa decades ago in Malate, Manila and to date I am glad that Wok-in’s Sipa still do exist. It’s probably their unique sauce or the meat inside? but the recipe is really simple. It’s like a Fried Wonton, with longer wanton wraps.

What’s the ingredients?

1 Cup Cooking Oil for Frying

1/2 a kilo of ground pork

1 tbsp of chili powder

3 tablespoon of soy sauce

2 tablespoon of fresh garlic (crushed)
1 cup carrots, minced

1 cup of singakamas (Turnip) minced

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1 1/2 cup onion, minced
1 piece raw egg
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 packs big wonton wrapper, if non use lumpia wrappers instead and cut it as per your desired size
1 cup of onion leeks

Cooking Instructions: Mix all ingredients with eggs excluding the Cooking Oil. Set aside for 15 minutes. Use a tablespoon for scoop the meat and wrap it with molo wrapper lifting all wrappers corners and placing the meats in the center. Cut out a strip of molo wrappers to be use as your knot. Carefully knot it not to loosen out the wrappers edges. Heat the Cooking Oil in a deep pan. Place your Sipa in a metal strainer and carefully dip it to the fan. Fry it until its golden brown.

About Wok-inn:

Wok Inn is a small and old restaurant situated right beside Malate church, it offers “open kitchen” style dining; No menu is being offered, you go in front of the counter and choose the ingredient (meat/seafood/veggies) and ask them to cook the way you want it. The Pasig Wok-in as per research is a split-away group from the Original Wok-inn. But anyway’s the food is the same 🙂 and they have a Menu in Pasig for the customers. You can ask Kris Aquino though on who was the real and original? I saw her picture in Pasig branch 🙂
