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