Wanton Mami at Wai Ying Fastfood in Binondo

Said to be one of the best dimsum places this side of Manila; Wai Ying Fastfood was our lunch destination after chasing the dragons of the Chinese New Year in Binondo.

Basically, the restaurant is an air-conditioned hole in the wall along Benavidez Street. The place had a very utilitarian interior and feel; plain blue-painted walls, vinyl tile floors,  plastic orocan Wai Ying Fastfood Storefrontchairs and formica-clad tables. It’s as simple as an eatery can get.

What we came here though was really not the ambience but the food. Unfortunately since I really had no idea that the restaurant’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 (noodle soup) was quite excellent and serving size was almost good for two; their lumpia (fried spring rolls), was definitely one of the better ones I’d had in a long while.

My companion ordered their Soy Chicken, it looked delicious but I was unable to have a taste, he had it all for himself, lol.

I’ve read that their milk tea was also legendary, but alas, I also did not know that then, settling for a bottle of soda instead. I know, I’m the most best-in-research foodie out there, haha.

With all the excellent dishes I missed during our lunch at Wai Ying, a second visit to Binondo or at Divisoria’s many tiangge, even if only to eat here again is certainly in the works.
