Named after a well-loved Ilocano politician and writer Mena Crisologo, Calle Crisologo is a well-preserved Spanish-era street lined with heritage houses or bahay na bato. The cobblestone street, stretching from Plaza Burgos to Rivero Street, was historically the business and trade center of North Luzon in the pre-colonial and Spanish colonial Philippines and where most of the residents were affluent Filipino-Chinese traders and merchants.
Binondo ⛩️ is known as the PH's chinatown, which offers a huge selection of cheap finds from apparel, bags, shoes, and of course, some of the best dish selections 👌
Some of my favorite bites here are:
🏮 Lord Stow's Bakery (superb egg tarts!!)
🏮 President Tea House (yum hakaw 🍤)
🏮 Chuan Kee (oldest fast food here! fav fried chicken 🍗)
scattered all-over you'll find small-whole buildings dedicated to thrift shops! but be warned that there might be some sketchy people near. its fun looking for hidden gems and some ukay buildings section their products from children wear to vintage furniture by floor.
