What To Expect

This half day tour will brings you a wonderful occasion to try out a variety of specialties in the oldest Chinatown in the world located in Binondo, Manila. This is breakfast, lunch and dinner merge into 1 big meal. The dishes you about to try is a great symbol of the rich Filipino – Chinese culture which has flourished throughout the centuries. This is an experience not to miss.

Description

Reputedly home to the oldest Chinatown in the world, Binondo district is a great place to soak up an “old Manila” atmosphere with a twist. Put aside few hours of non – stop culinary decadence as we eat our way around the most intimate alleys of Binondo.

Pick you up at 10.00am, we will take you around the street and try out 8 different restaurants and 10 dishes with unique tastes. And here is your menu in this excellent experience:

  • Kuchay Dumpings( Stemaed chives and pork dumplings): It has a somehow neutral taste but together with the soy sauce, chili and vinegar the explosion of flavors will truly make you tummy happy
  • Soup (Cow testicle soup): One of the most mysterious soup in the Philippines but it was surprisingly good. Its like beef stock but times 2. The testicle part in the soup taste like beef with a texture of fat. Just try not to think about it and enjoy.
  • Machang (Sticky Rice Dumplings): pork mixed into blended into sticky rice. It’s a good combination between sweet and salty. The neutral sweetness comes from the sticky rice and the saltiness comes from the meat
  • Kikiam (Chinese sausage); Basically it’s like a hybrid type of spring roll. Taste is quiet exquisite but pretty good.
  • Oyster cake: more of like an oyster omelette. So its basically egg and probably half a kilo worth of oysters in this dish. If you’re a big oyster fan this dish is for you!
  • Fried Lumpia (Filipino Spring Rolls): This popular Filipino snack is an explosion of? flavors and contrast but it is absolutely amazing. This is similar to a spring roll but the size of this is enormous. Eating one of this seems like a full size meal.
  • Peking duck: This is your regular peking duck that you buy anywhere else in the world but THE SAUCE is WOW!!!!!!. The way it compliments the duck and the rice just absolutely amazing
  • Salt and Pepper Frog Legs: These are frog legs deep fried with a hint of salt and pepper. It was weird at first but addicting towards the end.? Just try not to think it’s frogs
  • Fried Siopao: Siopao is usually a steamed bun but in this occasion the bottom is fried giving it a bit of a nice fried flavour to it. The filling in this fried siopao is pork mixture of sweet and salty taste to it. Sweetness comes from the bun, the pork has a bit of saltiness to it.
  • Hopia Ube: A Chinese snack with a Filipino twist. Hopia is a famous small pie in the chinese cuisine offering different flavors. Mainly it is a sweet dish and sometimes could be classified as dessert but with the purple yam flavour it is perfect for snacking. It is not too sweet.
