It’s a shame that I’ve only gone to Binondo recently. My Grandmother in my mom’s side is pure Chinese and growing up she and my mom used to tell me stories about the place. My mom always wanted to bring me there but because of the horrible traffic we never really had the chance to go.
After my class last Saturday, my groupmates and I decided to eat out for dinner to celebrate the end of six exhausting Saturdays. My friend Aimee, decided to take us to Binondo Chinatown because obviously the food there is very affordable and delicious.
Binondo really reminded me of Hong Kong because of the narrow streets and smell (trust me, if you’ve been to Hong Kong, you’ll certainly remember this distinct smell). Since Chinese New Year just ended, the streets and establishments were decorated with lanterns.
My friend decided to bring us to Waiying Restaurant. The food was really affordable therefore I didn’t expect much. I’m a sucker for Chinese food, especially duck and dimsum therefore I’d still eat it even if it isn’t at par with the usual Gloria Maris, Luk foo, Peking Garden, and the like. I can live with Paotsin and eat it everyday! I’m that type of person. I’m really not choosy when it comes to dimsum but I know if it’s really delicious and not full of extenders.
So we ordered Beef wanton mami, duck with fried rice, wanton, siomai, and hakaw.
I’d give this Restaurant a 4/5 because it’s affordable and exceeded my expectations.
