for her birthday, my friend Son wanted to go around binondo and have a food trip. eating and trying out their specialties. so we did just that. but we started late (after lunch) coz i still had some errands. we tried out different dishes and they were all good. and they're not expensive. there were four of us, tried out 10 food i think and spent only around P1,000. coz we started late and we were really full, we were not able to go to some other places so there'll be round 2 (hopefully). but here are the food that we tried:
Tasty Dumplings - Porkchop Noodles, Spareribs Noodles
but if i have to choose between porkchop noodles and spareribs noodles, i choose spareribs noodles. for me, it's tastier.
each noodle costs P115
Sincerity Restaurant - Sincerity Fried Chicken
|sincerity fried chicken|
for us, it tasted like chowking's chinese-style chicken. but since that's one of my favorites in chowking, then i also like this chicken. hehe
sincerity fried chicken: half - P150; whole - P300
Shanghai Fried Siopao
obviously, we bought fried siopao. but they also have other goods to sell. for just P16, it has full of meat. it's worth your money. this is the only take-out i bought, and when i brought it home and heated it with oven toaster, it still tastes good
Dong Bei Dumpling
of course, when you talk about chinese food, dumplings should be included. this store offers different kinds of dumplings but basically the ingredients are the same. hehe.
you would also see how your dumplings are made
basically that's our food trip and also halo=halo somewhere. hehe
what's also nice about binondo is that you can find cheap gigantic vegtables on the road. here's an example of a giant ginger that my friend bought
at least now, my memories of binondo is not only the dentist (that was there my dentist was before) & my dad's office before but now also foodtripping in binondo :)
