Yes. That is the image of Manny Pacquiao promoting a condo on top of the arch. How he got all the way up there, we have no idea.

Heading to Binondo at least once a year is starting to become an annual pilgrimage for En Route. No matter how many times you return, there’s always something new to see. So here is a collection of images of the sightings in one visit together with an occasional Gluttony Society (a.k.a. food trippers or foodies).

Just in case anyone is wondering where Ongpin Street is named.

Just a bit further towards Jones Bridge and Escolta is the first ever Savory Chicken restaurant. They really keep its original facade. For them, it’s good luck!

Even if it’s beside a septic looking stream, people still flock to the Estero “Food Court”. Air conditioned restos available, too πŸ˜€ !

    I miss going to Binondo! We frequented the area when I was still in high school. My dad and I will roam around Ongpin and eat at the humble-looking, yet taste bud-satisfying Chinese restos. πŸ™‚ The chicken from that particular Savory branch is better than their other branches, in my opinion. Although I love to just order the chicken for takeout to avoid the 3rd-hand smoke from frequent diners.

    Btw, I’m curious.. What kind of camera did you use to shoot at Binondo? I want to take streetshots too, but I’m hesitant if I should bring an slr.

      We actually had an SLR and a small cam with us when we went. I guess there is an extra precaution you will have to take. Best if you don’t go alone though. Binondo’s just a mine of great food!

    I’d love to go back to Binondo. πŸ™‚ I hope we could have a food trip in Binondo again. Next year perhaps? πŸ™‚
