Manila Chinatown Prepares for the Year of the Horse

Ongpin Street, Binondo, Manila

I was with the Lifestyle Network’s FoodPrints team yesterday. The ever vibrant Ongpin Street was at its busiest. It was hard to breathe, what more with a full tummy, doing several rounds of food sampling? Have you gotten yourself lucky charms yet?

Happy 2014, everyone!
