Binondo Food Tour Series #4: Wai Ying Fastfood

Shrimp Chong Fan at Wai Ying - 2
Shrimp Chong Fan @ Php 55

Because Dong Bei was closed in during our visit to Binondo last Black Saturday, we went to Wai Ying Fastfood to eat some dumplings. Me and Karla had some Hakaw and Shrimp Chong Fan. This was actually our first time to eat there and surprisingly, the dimsum were really cheap.

The last time I had this was ages ago and I think that was in Gloria Maris Wilson. Chong Fan is actually steamed flat noodles with some filling inside (like for this one, it has shrimps inside it). The light soy sauce – sugar mixture compliments the bland taste of steamed flat noodles.  Continue reading “Binondo Food Tour Series #4: Wai Ying Fastfood”

Just a few weeks ago, we got an invitation to try out this newest Indian restaurant in Jupiter Street, Makati. It’s not all the time that Karla and I get to experience Indian cuisine so we immediately agreed to the invitation of the owner of Legend of India, Rakesh Alwani.
