I remember that segment well. Ren and I have been wanting to do this tour for quite some time now, so when I found out that my brother and sister-in-law would be spending the holidays here, I booked our slots right away. Luckily for us, it was a beautiful sunny day. We arrived early so I had time to snap a few shots. Ivan arrives on schedule wearing his blue and yellow Old Manila Walks shirt.
The tour promptly begins at 9 AM so please be sure to arrive on time. Ivan kicks off the tour by giving us a brief history on the love-hate relationship between Binondo and Intramuros, the Chinoys and the Mestizos. The first thing we tried today was this delicious pork and vegetable fresh lumpia. Tasty on its own, you can add ground peanuts, seaweed, garlic in vinegar, and a duo of sweet and spicy sauces to add even more depth of flavor.
Meticulous to prepare, it takes an entire day just to chop up all the vegetables! How cool! The first of three dishes was this fried tofu with cilantro and cucumbers in a sweetened soy sauce.
Absolutely delicious with its crisp skin and layers of flavor, this was one of my favorite dishes from today. Next up were these tasty little pork empanadas. Very nice! The third and final dish was this pancit with crunchy kangkong. Pancit means noodles and kangkong is a type of water spinach.
Really good too. En route to our third stop, we passed this vendor selling sea cucumbers… …and litid beef tendon. As it turns out, most of the Chinese restaurants in Manila offer dishes only from a certain region in China. This one serves northen Chinese cuisine, a rare treat even for local Chinese.
Here are the dumpling elves toiling away, making pork dumplings all day. Chopping up kuchay or Chinese leeks for… …these delicious kuchay dumplings. So much work goes into making these things! These freshly made kuchay dumplings were delicious. As good as the dumplings were, these fried pork pancakes were even better.
En route to our fourth restaurant, we make the only non-food stop of the tour. These are basically male-only clubs or fraternities that are open to members of the same clan — ie the Tan association can only be joined by Tans, the Chua association by Chuas, etc.
The produce here was so fresh and cheap! One served hot and the other cold, they went extremely well together. Ivan had us guess what the custard bun filling was made from and of course, Ren got it instantly — salted duck eggs.
Sweet, salty, and with the texture of pureed egg yolk, it was delicious. The most refreshing mango tapioca. This was made from pureed whole mangoes, not mango juice. He had us try preserved ginger, plums, dilis anchovies , squid, pork, and corn nuts. Needless to say, some were more palatable than others. They were willing to try everything! As with every stop on this tour, we were free to sample as much of it as we wanted.
How cool was that? It details every stop on this tour including many others. You feel it during those three and a half hours which fly by, just like that.
It was fascinating to see Binondo in this light. It certainly changed my perspective. You can book directly through the Old Manila Walks website or through Klook.
