the big Binondo food wok - Chinese New Year Edition

Finally, Jeff and I were able to join the Chinese New Year Edition of the Big Binondo Food WOK by Ivan Man Dy of Old Manila Walks last Sunday. We missed it last year and so I was determined not to miss it the second time around. It was an enlightening and enjoyable tour, and a great experience to discover the culinary secrets of Binondo with the Chinese New Year celebration as a backdrop. Ivan Man Dy is the perfect guide!

I will not go into detail on what happened during the tour, so as not to dampen the excitement of those who plan to go on one. I will just leave you with these that made us go oooohh and aaahhh...

It's really more than just the food. We went home not only with our stomachs full, but also our mind and soul as well. It is definitely worth taking if you are adventurous enough to know what great culinary gems Binondo has to offer. It's a worthwhile afternoon spent walking, eating and learning. ; )
