Binondo Food Trip Challenge

August 01, 2014

One Saturday, we decided to a food trip in Binondo. Ara is very familiar on the area, the itinerary shouldn't be a problem. I told them that my budget was only PhP500. Hehe.

Tink and I were supposed to attend our yoga session before heading to Binondo, but we woke up a little late (lols) so we headed to Binondo instead. We rode the train until the Taft station, and transferred to LRT. We stopped at UN Ave station and rode a jeep until we reached the Binondo Church.

We initially waited for Ara and Bren at the church, and then moved to the nearest Starbucks because it was pretty hot that day.  When they arrived, we started our food trip at Dong Bei for some kuchay dumplings. We paid PhP 120 for 14 pcs of dumplings.

We had the Japanese siomai for PhP 80 at Wai Ying Fastfood. I ordered fried tofu at PhP 60 per serving. We were lucky and was able to secure a table when we got there. There was a long line when we left.

We headed to the Masuki Mami Restaurant for the huge asado siopao. We paid PhP 85 for it. It was huge that three of us shared one siopao.
We were itching to get a dessert so we went to Lord Stow for a yummy egg tart. We paid PhP 165 for 4 egg tarts.

And just because we could still accommodate more food, we went to Sincerity Cafe and Restaurant and ordered fried chicken for PhP 150 and small oyster cake for PhP 140. By this time, Bren left already so it would only be the three of us sharing the food. :P

We stayed for awhile at Sincerity Cafe, and decided to go to Divisoria for some tiange shopping. :P I only spent PhP 252 on the food trip. Galing, may sukli pa PhP500 ko!!
