Quiapo Food Crawl
From a 24/7 church, to anting-anting stalls, to mouthwatering street food, this gritty district seems to have it all. That is perhaps why Manileños cannot seem to get enough of Quiapo. But be warned: this tour is not for the faint of heart.
You will find your bearings at the home of the illustrious Nakpil-Baustista family, whose forebears were key figures in the Philippine revolution. You will then head to Plaza Miranda and learn why it used to be the heart of Manila. Going into Quiapo Church, you will get to see the Poong Nazareno up close, a 400-year old image of Jesus that is the reason why millions of people flock to this area each year. You will get to experience lighting multicolored candles, a popular practice in these parts, and then it’s time to sample homegrown favorites: Chinese-style ham, pugon-baked hopia, and a decadent palabok.
