Wai Ying Fast Food – Binondo, Manila

I guess if you’re going on a food trip, Wai Ying is a go-to place in Binondo.

When you’re in Benavidez Street, you’d think that the store facade is enough to throw you off.  But there’s more to this place.  It’s Chinese cuisine heaven inside.

My heart did a little dance when I saw this signage

Shrimp chong fan (flat noodles) is my new favorite dimsum! And the sauce just keeps the taste buds yearning for more!

I couldn't put a finger on it.  There's something about it that I like and there's something that greatly appalls me.  I only got through with one slice because I paired it with the sauce from the Shrimp Chong Fan, not the sauce that it came with.

The place was packed. We were fourth in line but quickly moved to second.  That was lunch time on a Sunday.  We were lucky.

  1. I super miss Wai Ying and was lucky to discover it before it became massively popular and less crowded [shows my age a bit lol]. One of my faves there is ‘hakaw’, and their ‘authentic’ siomais and the lovely radish cake. Looking at your photos made me mouthwatery already.
