Wan Chai Tea House

PEx Food Club met once again for another food trip and we went to Binondo this time. And one of our stops is Wan Chai Tea House. Wan Chai Tea House is one the oldest restaurants in Binondo. Our food trip organizer, Kenny, wouldn't let us miss this restaurant. Wan Chai has several branches around the metro and Binondo is the main branch.

My apologies in advance since I wasn't able to take note of the names of everything we ordered. I tried my best to remember some items though.

Kenny ordered dimsum for us.

Wan Chai tea

Wan Chai is a tea house so tea should not be missing.

Here are the dimsums we tried:


Hakaw (Php 80) is a shrimp dumpling. I had to use two forks to transfer it from to my plate. Nevertheless, it's still yummy!

Steamed Lumpia

A personal favorite is Steamed Lumpia (Php 70). I love the sweet sauce!

Fried Raddish Cake

We also had Fried Raddish Cake (Php 60). We were hesitant at first but it doesn't taste like raddish, the heaviness of this dish is similar to tikoy.

Mango Crabstick Roll

A crowd favorite is the Mango Crabstick Roll, which also served as dessert.

Shrimp Rice Roll

Asado Rice Roll

Dry Shrimplet Rice Roll

We also tried the Rice Rolls (Php 60-70). The rice rolls are kinda heavy that we weren't able to finish everything, like the dry shrimplet rice rolls (or hibi-hibi).

We also had this dimsum, but I forgot the name. :( It contains shrimp though. Of course, it's delicious.


We ended our meal with a soup called Ponchotay (please correct me if I spelled incorrectly).

Overall, Wan Chai is a must try! I went giddy when I found out that it has a branch in Ortigas (yehey!). The food is so good that thinking about it is enough to make me drool.

Love it!
