Said to be one of the best dimsum places in Manila, Wai Ying Fastfood was our lunch destination for the Chinese New Year.
Basically an airconditioned hole in the wall, the place had a very utilitarian interior; blue painted walls, vinyl tile floors, plastic chairs and formica-clad tables. It’s as simple as it can get.
What we came here though was really not the ambience but the food. Unfortunately since I really had no idea that the resto’s specialty was dimsum prior to writing this, I did not order any. What I had were their Wanton Mami (Php95.00) and Fried Lumpia (Php55.00), which really wasn’t a bad choice at all too.
Their steaming Mami was excellent and serving size was almost good for two; their Lumpia, definitely one of the better ones I’d had in a long while.
I’ve also read that their milk tea was legendary, but I also did not know that then, settling for a bottle of soda instead.
With all the excellent dishes I missed during our lunch at Waiying, a second visit to Binondo or at Divisoria’s many tiangge, even if only to eat here again is a certainty.
