ESTERO fast food

this was the first time i took a closer look at Ongpin St. in Binondo, Manila. as it is part of the Chinatown in Manila, i never knew that there are more food choices within the area apart from the luxurious Chinese cuisine. shopping is one reason to walk along Binondo and the tour wouldn't be complete without food. after hearing mass from Binondo Church, my friend suggested that we take Estero Fast Food to fill our grumbling stomachs.

getting to Estero
Estero is a local call for creek. the fast food is located along the stretch of Ongpin. from Binondo Church, walk left of Ongpin until you pass two bridges. Estero is just beside the second bridge by the creek as the name suggests.

Estero is just a simple eating area. you will see simple tables and chairs just like in a carinderia setting. you just have to sit and wait to be attended and make your order.

the food choices are surprisingly cheap. for ala carte, the prices range from Php 60 - Php 200 from small to large orders. we ordered small sizes of these dishes:

Crispy Frog Legs - yes, we ordered crispy fried frog legs. for a first-time frog eater like my friend, she didn't find anything disgusting about it. in fact, she appreciated it. deep fried frog legs dipped into sweet and sour sauce are good as appetizers. she even ordered more to go. Php 100

Nido Soup with Quail eggs - to warm your stomach, take a sip of nido soup. Php 70

Fried Rice - rice is a Filipino staple, of course. Php 60

Beef with Broccoli - i always find this in any Chinese restaurant. thin strips of beef meat sauteed with broccoli are still delicious anytime. Php 80

everything costs less than Php 500 upon billing. we would be happy to return and enjoy more of their menu. the place is also clean and you can see how they prepare your food so you're guaranteed safe to what you're gonna eat. they also have a second floor where it is air-conditioned for a comfortable eating.



  1. Tried Nido soup last year from like . Tastes really good... yeah, I thought it was gross at first, but wow, you won't regret it.

  2. @Rachel: too bad i caught an allergy eating it because it has shrimps. :(
