Binondo food tour

That's our guide Ivan Man Dy. Thanks to him, we were led to quaint, simple stores offering the best siopao, dumplings, and lumpia I've ever had. Our group was pretty big - about 30 people. Payment is P850/person, including the food. The tour took almost 4 hours, started promptly at 9:00 am at the Binondo Church.

Lots of fruits on Salazar St. where I got sweet and beautiful plums for a steal - P170/kilo. You won't believe how expensive they are in Metro Manila groceries.

Highly recommended dumplings along Yuchengco St. New Po-Heng Lumpia House is along Quintin Paredes, and the siopao stall (tsk, I forget the name) is along Benavidez. We even met Jerry Chua, the owner of Eng Bee Tin. Guess what he gave us? Hopia, yey! They have a new flavor - mochaccino, and Bebert says they're pretty good.
