Chinatown: Kim Hiong Food Garden

KIM HIONG Food Garden 

Binondo Food Crawl

We hit the busy streets of  Ongpin last February 2, 2011 looking for our fortune forecast and cures in celebration of Chinese New Year. We were here for the propagation of our own world of feng shui via consultation and clamor in suggestive selling techniques of some old Chinese folks.

We came all the way from Divisoria after a short shopping trip. People and seekers for abundance and prosperity lined up the tikoy and hopia stores, together with different fruit stalls displayed with lucky fruits that they believe will attract abundance, like: pineapple, kiat-kiat, oranges & apples to serve at every house' dining table. Shrimp, taro, peanut, ginger and the ever present lucky charms are massively displayed in every corner and side-streets.

At 3:00 p.m., I said it's time for lunch 'coz we're getting dizzy and our shoulders and backs are getting crazy with the heavy loots we bought in. We passed by McDonalds, the hell?!! we are indeed hungry, and so we say "when in Chinatown forget McDo!"

Kim Hiong is along Ongpin, in front of Eng Bee Tin and Mini Stop. I frequent Ongpin and embrace the foodies we encounter on each visit. But Kim Hiong, we never fail to dine in. Kim Hiong is a casual chinese restaurant, they offer dimsum, noodles/rice noodles, and fried noodles. So it goes, all time favorite was the fried noodle, best with Mountain Dew. Bola-bola siopao, it's dough is super soft plus the chili sauce is abundantly served. All in all you do save a lot and at the same time you didn't eat in a fancy fast-food type. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
