Gluttony 2.0 – A Day in Binondo

This is a trip that we really did plan — like a month of researching and schedule adjustments? Hahaha… this is what usually happen if you are surrounded with friends who knows how to appreciate food as much as you do.

A one day trip in Binondo, Manila is definitely a must try! No matter what streets you turned or sides you walked, there’s a door waiting to be open that can lead you to a room that serves delicious and affordable food.

How to go there: (all I know) is to take the LRT 1 and drop off at Carriedo station. From there, you can just ride a tricycle to take you to Binondo. You can just ask the tricycle to drop you off at Wai Ying Fastfood (our 1st stop), then you can just walk from there to go to the other restaurants. And since this escapade needs a lot of walking (under the sun), make sure to wear light and comfortable clothes and slippers, and might as well bring an umbrella too.

And without further ado, here it is! Enjoy and get hungrrry!

voylaaa! *burrrppp!*

2nd stop:  Shanghai Fried Siopao

Kuya said, they fried the siopao that’s why it’s called Fried Siopao. Hahaha. Makes sense right? :p

1441555_10201015764025335_760786493_n

we were still quiet confused though about the fried siopao, hahaha ;p

3rd stop: Eng Bee Tin (for the pasalubong: hopia and tikoy)

Since we’re still full, we decided to buy some pasalubong first, before we go to ‘Chuan Kee’ – for our much anticipated Halo-Halo!

4th stop: Lord Stow’s Bakery (egg tart)

We just actually passed by this bakery on the road which is not really part of our original itinerary, but since we’ve learned from our research that their Egg Tart is actually delicious, we then decided to just give it a try.

This is absolutely a must try! Although the egg tart ONLY tastes good when it’s still hot.

5th stop: Dong Bei Dumpling

This part is really funny, imagine how big our group is and we just ordered one plate of dumplings?!? Hahaha. The looks on the servers faces are really precious! LOL. Good thing that theirs really not much of customers inside, ’cause they might probably just ask us to eat the dumplings outside, since theirs not much room inside anymore. Hahaha

ONE plate for ONE hundred pesos … for ALL OF US!!! hahaha. Please forgive our still full stomach that time, we just really like to try and taste it.

1463194_10201015691383519_1979099923_n

And this is the ‘ALL OF US’. Hahaha

6th stop: Chuan Kee (Halo-Halo)

Finally! Yes, the place is just actually at the top of Eng Bee Tin, but since this is for dessert, then we have to put it on our last list. It’s halo-halo time beybiii!

1395130_10201015756265141_606725902_n

It’s just actually residing at the top of Eng Bee Tin (our 3rd stop), but we stopped ourselves to go there after EBT, since we’re still full and needed more walk to give those halo-halo some space inside our stomach. LOL
