Waiying Part 2

After walking and shooting and clicking for more than 4 hours, we dined at Waiying since it’s just a few minutes away from Recto Avenue.  Waiying is our favorite Chinese Fastfood located in Benavides Street in Binondo, Manila. I was with Boggs and Taj and the three of us are all STARVING – literally.


The Soy Chicken Rice is one of Waiying’s best because no words can explain how delicious it is – OA! yeah I know. 🙂  It doesn’t taste like soy sauce if that’s what you think it’s made of.  It’s sweet and juicy.  Please be enticed by the pictures below. 🙂

We added HAKAW and HOT SALAD as side orders.  Hakaw is a soft dumpling with shrimp inside.  Hot Salad, on the other hand contains pineapple and apple tidbits covered just like a hot pie.

Hot Salad

Hakaw and the Hot Salad are best-sellers and at the same time affordable.  They just cost 60Php and around 68Php respectively.  I’ll try other side dishes the next time we visit and I’ll make sure that there’s enough room in my stomach to consume all of those.  My next target is their BUKO PANDAN! 🙂

Food Trip: Wai Ying

On July 3, we had a sidetrip in Binondo, Manila to do a photowalk.  But nothing interesting caught my eye and lens aside from the Binondo Church and Chinatown.  Later that day, I realized that we should’ve gotten there when there’s an event, counting in Chinese New Year.  After an hour of endless walking, we found Wai Ying – a Chinese Fastfood Restaurant that I have been missing for months.

Wai Ying was introduced to me by my friend Xtian way back college days – okay it was in 2003, I think.  The foods served are really delicious and the prices are very affordable.  Each item on the menu are enticing.

We still waited for a few minutes because there’s no vacant table.  People really love to dine here because of its affordable menu.  When I held the menu, I missed the taste of the Soy Chicken Mushroom but I want to taste Curry Beef Brisket so I ordered one.  Gelo ordered the “duck” one (I forgot what it’s called.. hehe) and Gepay ordered the same as mine and one order of steamed siomai.

Does it look like a duck? but tastes much of a chicken.. 🙂

Steamed Siomai

As expected, our stomachs are once again full and more than satisfied.  The prices are higher as compared 7 years ago (of course.. 🙂 it only costs around 72Php) but still within reach.  Their rice toppings (the ones mentioned above) cost 110Php-120Php.  I plan to go back with my college friends and try out that Steamed Chicken Mushroom which is my Wai Ying all-time favorite.

Bon Appetit! 🙂
