Food Trips | Lam Tin Tea House Banawe: A Budget-Friendly Chinese Restaurant

fish fillet with bean curd - 200 Php

Lam Tin Tea House is a Chinese restaurant located in Banawe Street, Quezon City. It is a casual dining restaurant that offers affordable Chinese dishes in generous servings. My BFF and I usually ate here whenever we go to Bambang for his mom's medical supplies. Banawe is quite a busy area as it's known to be a go-to place for car services and accessories so expect a lot of people dining. We normally arrived at this resto past lunch time and yet, there's still a long queue of diners.

What are our usual orders
For lunch, we usually order the following: yang chow fried rice, fish fillet with bean curd, fried squid and seafood soup. In this particular visit, we also tried their siomai. In some of our visits, we also tried their halo halo congee, BFF's favorite.

yang chow fried rice - 140 Php
It looks like a cup but actually it's a small bowl full of tasty fried rice; good enough for 2 persons.

fried squid - 250 Php
Generous serving though breading is quite thick.

seafood soup - 180 Php
I love steaming hot soup, especially seafood. 
And this one from Lam Tin did not disappoint. 
It was hot and delicious; of generous serving, too. 
The photo above is just a serving from a large bowl, good for 3-4 persons.

pork siomai - 100 Php
Kind of pricey when compared to other popular siomai but theirs is tasty;
with more lean meat and a shrimp and not just extenders.
