Chinatown: Kim Hiong Food Garden

KIM HIONG Food Garden 

Binondo Manila

We hit the busy streets of  Ongpin last February 2, 2011 looking for our fortune forecast and cures on the eve 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 to keep in trend with Ongpin's bustling  avenue. People and seekers for abundance and prosperity lined up the tikoy and hopia stores, together with different fruit stalls displayed with lucky fruits like: pineapple, kiat-kiat, oranges & apples to serve in every house' dining table. Shrimps, taro, peanut, ginger and the ever present lucky charms are massively displayed in every corner and side-streets.

At past 3:00 p.m., I quoted it's time for lunch 'coz were 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 is indeed hungry, and so we say "when in Chinatown forget McDo!"

Kim Hiong is along Ongpin, infront of Eng Bee Tin and Mini Stop. I frequent Ongpin and embraced the foodies we encounter in each visit. But Kim Hiong, we never fail to dine in. Kim Hiong is a casual chinese dining, they offer dimsum, noodle/rice noodle, fried noodle. So it goes, all time fave was the fried noodle, best with Mountain Dew [mad-walking legs, you'll agree the need to energize and Mountain Dew will give you that]. Bolabola 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!
