Masangkay Street in the Binondo area is not known for restaurants. A Chinese hospital and a school are the main attractions in this street. However, Ha Yuan Fast Food is a magnet to schoolchildren, Binondo residents, visitors of the Metropolitan Hospital, where my first child was born, and Chinoys from the province who miss the old traditional Chinese and Filipino snacks that have remained to be all-time favorites.
Special tikoy (glutinous rice cake) for the coming Chinese New Year.
Tokwa and tofu to go.
Tahue Taohu (according to the Chinese-speaking hubby) is also a bestseller.
Siomai at 15 pesos a piece.
All-Filipino banana turon.
Bitso-bitso, quite like churros, albeit lighter. Pinoys also call them Long Johns.
The piece de resistance, an 80-peso bowl of hot and sweet and tasty Asado Mami, a barbecued pork noodle soup with a big blob of the house hot sauce!!
One bowl is not enough!
Asado to take home to Ilocos!
