ding-qua-qua means: This is a Filipino imitation of dim sum. The dish is said to have originated in Becu in the 80s, although no one knows if it exists. A native said that the dish is made of rice steamed with pork, goat or fowl. Next, pour a large amount of sauce on the top. Finally, use a 12 inch wooden ladel to churn the ingredients. Before the mixture can be eaten, it should sit at least 10 minutes. This allows all flavors to interact. There have been no other reports of this sighting. No one can tell if this is a creative or real dish, just like bigfoot. (in Community Dictionary, added by Kaylynn Nelson)

What else does ding-qua-qua mean?

  • This is the Cebu-based food chain where the traditional Chinese dim-sum was transformed into an appealing and modern version. Customers were served only sticky brown rice with their dim-sum, which was a traditional Chinese dish that included actual portions of chicken, pork and beef. These dim-sums are popular with older Chinese men (called “jer-jer”) who long for the old days of dog-meat or cats. They feel that this new version of dim-sum would be a reversal of their “see-fut” dishes. This practice has been deemed as disgusting by Filipinos as the eating of turtles. So dim-sum was reintroduced to its current status. Steamed Pork Dim-Sum is a popular dish. It consists of a bowl with pork fried rice at the bottom and a portion of pork sauteed in delicious Ding-Qua-Qua-Qua special sauce on the top. After the pork has been mixed with the rice, it is ready to be consumed. Cebu’s most famous dim-sum spot is here. (in Community Dictionary, added by Adalberto Muñoz)
