Big Breakfast at Ying Ying

Siopao

Ying Ying Tea House is not new to this blog. I discovered it by accident (read story here). It’s become an instinctive habit upon reaching Manila. Hot congee or mami with something from the dim sum of the day will surely wake up your day. If you haven’t heard, the owner used to work at President Restaurant.

I saw someone eating siopao at the other table, so I had to have one. The textures of both the bread and the filling are beautifully done, obviously freshly made.

Fish Cake Mami

I’m having this affair with fish ball soup. It’s something I crave for everyday. They ran out of fish balls, but fish cake was a fine substitute. The size and texture of the noodles are done the traditional way, very pleasing, while the soup was tasty and comforting.

Though the texture is generally nice, the radish cake can be more improved with some zest perhaps. As always, the duck congee packs so much flavor in one bowl.

Hot and ColdFried Silver Rolls with Condensed Milk

To complete the breakfast at Ying Ying, we had to have fried silver rolls with the necessary morning milk.

  1. Never had fried silver rolls before. And I love Kowloon siopao which I never miss to have everytime I go home. Is their siopao better than Kowloon? Am really searching out there if there’s a better one. I have had North Park once but I wasn’t impressed. Same with Emerald(?).
