3. The Binondo Food Trip

Binondo - Dong Bei Fresh Dumplings

Perhaps the nearest place for a food trip can be done in Chinatown in Old Manila. If you have a foodie friend who knows the Binondo area quite well, it is better to organize your own itinerary based on what would you like to explore. Sunday brunch is a popular time to go to Wai Ying, Ying Ying or the recently reopened President’s restaurant. Popular orders would be the usual dimsum dishes of Shrimp Dumplings, Siomai, and Pinsec Frito

On your own time, you can also check out Quick Snack’s Fried Lumpia along Carvajal St. or the often talked about Sincerity Fried Chicken along Nueva St. If you are a little more adventurous, you might want to visit the oldest restaurants in Binondo — Ma Mon Luk (now called Masuki) for its Siopao and Mami, and Manosa Restaurant for its authentic Chinese soups, dishes and “ambiance”.

The easiest way to explore Binondo is to join Ivan Man Dy’s Binondo Food Wok. He will take you to the best Fresh Dimsum place in Binondo called Dong Bei Dumplings and to other foodie secrets. This is a half-day walking tour around Binondo where Ivan will entertain you with stories about culinary discoveries and anecdotes about different characters in the area (like the businessman famous for the Ube Hopia, Ube-colored fire truck and restaurant). The walking tour ends with the best Fresh Chinese Lumpia located inside an Art Deco building owned by the Uysubin family.
