My Binondo Food Trips

Binondo, the oldest Chinatown established in Asia (outside of China, of course) is home to many Chinese tea houses that serve authentic Chinese fares at affordable prices. I’m not saying it only has that because it definitely has more than that. It’s like a time machine that transports people to the olden days when Chinese migrants first settled here in Manila to earn a living and influence the Filipino way of life in more ways than one. But I digress.

As a big fan of Chinese food, I only got to explore Binondo restaurants fairly recently. But more than anything, I think it gives me an advantage because I got introduced to Binondo and its culinary treasures at a time when I’m already earning money. You see, if I didn’t have purchasing power yet, how would I be able to enjoy the delicious Chinese food in Binondo? Haha.

Anyway, I actually wrote this post to share my Binondo food trips so that those who would like to check out Binondo and experience gastronomic pleasures could have some ideas on the wide variety of offerings of the food places there. Below are the Binondo restaurants I’ve tried so far:


Wai Ying Fast Food

Estero: LGA Fastfood

Dong Bei Dumpling

Sincerity Cafe and Restaurant

Cafe Mezzanine (the volunteer fireman’s coffee shop)

I’ll add more to the list once I’ve visited new Binondo restaurants in the coming days.

If you’ve eaten in Binondo countless times already, why not suggest new food places for this Binondo newbie to try? I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
