Chinatown is indeed a gastronomic delight, a place where you can find authentic chinese food... and Masuki (which is dubbed to be the original Ma Mon Luk) located at Benavidez St., Binondo, is one of those food stalls that have survived over the years. It was established in 1930s but had to close down due to labor problems, and re-opened its doors in the 70s. Masuki, just like Ma Mon Luk's restaurant in Quezon Avenue, is what you'll call old school because it has the no frill feel, just like how you panciteria looked like ages ago.
I'd say their siomai tasted very like Ma Mon Luk's but i find their Mami more delicious, maybe its because of the special sauce that you pour to your taste, yes the same sauce that you use for the siomai.
