Deliberately within firing range of Intramuros, Binondo teems with jostling pedestrians and itinerant vendors. Foodies should duck inside several fabled Chinese-Filipino eateries.

Whenever I crave for dimsum, hopia, taho, or siopaio I always go to Binondo because I know I can get authentic Chinese dishes at an affordable price.
