Food Feast in Wai Ying Dimsum

by - July 28, 2015

Whenever I'll be invited in a food review for a Chinese Restaurant, I get excited with anticipation that I will be having a full meal and I'll be going home tummy-full.

Wai Ying Dimsum is a fast food branch of Wai Ying Restaurant that caters mostly students from nearby universities such as De Lasalle Taft, St. Benilde and St. Scholastica. Their prices are affordable and they are open from 7 in the morning till late night. Located at EGI Tower Taft, Manila. 

As I said, I am expecting to be full tummy this afternoon and look what we all had that afternoon.

Molo soup for starters. 

Yangchow fried rice (single serving), but for me, it's good for 2 person to share.

Chicken in Taosi. I have low sodium taste buds so for me, it's a little salty however, for my bloggers friends, they said it was just enough saltiness. This is very common for Chinese Restaurant here in Manila.

My fave, Lemon Chicken. It's crispy on the outside and very flavorful on the inside. Me and my fellow bloggers all loved their version of Lemon Chicken.

Sweet and Sour Pork. Pork is tender yet my only issue is, the sauce. It's really sour! No sweet at all, however, I already told it to the owner and hopefully when I come back, the sauce wouldn't be that sour and I will be able to taste sweetness.

My second favorite, Creamy Chicken. Fried Chicken fillet poured with creamy sauce. The creamy sauce is thick and creamy, has enough balance of saltiness on it.

Chinese Food Feast will not be complete without DIMSUM. My fave of all DIMSUM is Sharksfin.

Pork & Shrimp Siomai. Generous amount of pork and shrimp and no extender. One bite, you can really taste they mixed good amount of shrimp.

Egg Roll, there's meat and a little mayonnaise inside. And by the way, it's sweet because they mixed it with pineapple.

Japanese Dimsum, I wasn't able to taste it but the group said, it's fairly ok!

For the last dish I tasted, Beef Curry. Beef is so tender and I love that you can really smell and taste the strong curry.

Congee with Century Egg. Congee is very popular here in Asia. Us Filipinos, we eat this at breakfast and afternoon snack, oh! even midnight snack after you had 2 bucket of beers with your friends.

We all enjoyed our meal and I'm definitely be coming here very soon! Thanks Wai Ying!

  1. The Wai Ying I know is the one in Binondo. My friends and I love to go there because of the authentic Chinese cuisine. I didn't know they have a branch in Taft Avenue. It's good to know that students can also enjoy their food because of their affordability and proximity to schools.

  2. I'm not really into Chinese cuisine but that Creamy Chicken looks really delicious. How much would that cost and is it enough for 3 persons?

  3. Its less than 300 pesos and its good for 3 persons

    1. Those are fried molo wrappers (thats what I remem)

  5. I'm a fan of dimsums! We always either go with dimsums + congree or dimsums + noodles. Their sweet and sour pork looked flavorful so I was disappointed to know that it didn't have much taste (except for being sour) like how it appears on the photo. Glad you've given them a feedback and hopefully, they can improve that dish.

  6. I like dimsum too. But yes, a problem with some of these dimsum places is the salt content. I like to try their siomai though based on your description about the shrimp content.

  7. I didn't know they opened up in Taft! The food looks great!! I miss it a lot and this totally got me craving!! Haha! :)
