Ying Ying Tea House Binondo

We're treating ourselves with some wonderful Chinese Meals! I'm glad to be assigned for the next months in Binondo Area. It was a new place for me, thus, another place to discover, another place to blog about!

Chinese food for me feels like I'm eating heart-friendly food since I can skip those fast food, soft drinks, hamburgers and I'm eating those veggies, stir fry rice, asian flavor side dish as they use ingredients with strong flavor already - which I believe eliminates the need of MSG, more salt or more sugar. Guys, Aren't you tired of always eating in Fast Food? Well I do, sometimes I also eat my own 'baon'. ;)

We're able to try this Chinese Restaurant named Ying Ying Tea House during lunch break, it's full of customers. I'm not sure about the age of this 3-storey restaurant, I just think its over decades because of the old floors and tables. The place really needs a revamp - so don't expect too much for the place. People come here because of the food, not the place.
  • While waiting for the available seat, waiters assist us for an advance order. 
  • They immediately offered us my favorite Jasmine Tea once seated.
  • Their utensils will be given in a mug with boiling hot water. 
  • Ying Ying offers frozen siomai & dumplings you can take home to cook.
  • I find their menu surprisingly cheap!
  • Inside the place, I could savor all those aroma! Noodles, Dumplings, Tea, Side Dish!
  • SERVING PORTIONS: big serving! their Siomai is twice the size of those ~Php 30 Siomai (for 4 pcs) It full of meat and a little extender, plus it also got some small prawns inside.
I wished we could order more but our tummy already said NO More :(
Photo do not show justice here. They really serve huge rice serving. Poor diet. :))
I'll be updating this post for the names and prices of what we ordered, might even add more coz we'll surely come back! ^_^
How I wish I could make my own dumpling ala Ying Ying Tea House. Anyway, I'll just order frozen ones :p

  1. Welcome to Binondo. :-)

    I am a regular visitor of Ongpin Street and other parts of Binondo. For your next food trip, I suggest that you try Lan Zhou La Mien and Estero.

    And since you are in Binondo, you have the chance to compare the hopia from Eng Bee Tin, Salazar Bakery, Holand, Polland and Baker's Fair.

    1. Hi! I'm taking note of that :D I'm wondering where's Estero? I mean the restaurant itself :D
