Manila: Waiying

Whenever I crave for Chinese food, my mind can’t help but wander to Waiying. We decided to eat dinner at the Waiying branch near Ongpin. It was a Sunday evening, therefore there’s no fear of traffic or lack of parking space. Anyway, the place offers affordable Chinese comfort food. It’s menu is composed mainly of the typical Chinese food templates: dimsum, rice toppings, noodles and congee.

Wanton Mami (Php 100): There’s nothing like a large bowl of hot soup and noodles topped with shrimp wanton and veggies.

Beef Congee (Php 100)

Beef Congee (PhP 100): Huge bowl of congee with slices of marinated beef — this will most probably disprove that person who said that congee does not fill the tummy since it is just water and a bit of rice.

Taiwan Pechay w/ Oyster Sauce (Php 80)

Taiwan Pechay (PhP 80) & Brocolli Flower (PhP 100) w/ Oyster Sauce: Of course, we need fresh, crunchy vegetables for a balanced diet. I think they blanched the veggies rather than steaming them.

Shrimp Chong Fan (Php 65)

Shrimp Chong Fan (PhP 65): Chong Fan are steamed rice noodle sheets. Combined with shrimp and light soy sauce, this is definitely a yummy dish.

Sure, the place is not the pristine, clean, decorated Chinese restaurant like President’s or Golden Fortune, but they serve good food at a cheap price. So, the next time you go shopping at 168 or Lucky Chinatown (15 minute walk), do a photo walk along Ongpin (5-10 minutes depending on where you are) or just happen to end up at the Binondo area, do drop by Waiying along Benavidez. It’s definitely worth it.

P.S. DO try their Cold Hong Kong Milk Tea. I was really sad that I was not allowed to order this tonight because of my sore throat.

  1. I’ have only tried one Chinese Restaurant at Ongpi, Matsuki (if i remember it right), from its old interior itself, we’ll know for sure that the Mami being served to you has been a passed on recipe way back or since Ongpin emerged in Manila :))

    1. I agree. Their mami is really good! I especially like the sweet/salty sauce that goes with it. My dad and mom used to have their dates at Masuki back in the 70s and they claim that the mami there tastes the same as then. 🙂
