ERICJAZ FOODIES are having a different kind of weekend date by joining our favorite KAIN TULOG GANG peeps do a BINONDO FOOD TRIP. We had about 12 restaurants in the itinerary but we already loved the first restaurant so much (TASTY DUMPLINGS) that I wonder how the next stop would equal it.
Now when the organizer of our food trip, THE FOOD ALPHABET said that the next one on the list was SINCERITY RESTAURANT, I was honestly not too optimistic about it because it already invaded some stalls in the food court scene.
"I promise you, the food at SINCERITY RESTAURANT in BINONDO tastes MORE delicious than what they have in the malls. You just gotta try it."
Hmmmm... Now THAT definitely piqued the curiosity of my big forehead. So even if I had the mall version of SINCERITY RESTAURANT, I suddenly became excited to taste how they serve it in magical BINONDO.
And for our BINONDO FOOD stop 2... it's now SINCERITY RESTAURANT!
Our group was now joined by FOOD IN THE BAG!!! YAY!
Like most of the old restaurants in BINONDO, SINCERITY RESTAURANT hasn't changed their signage. Ha ha ha ha ha!
We arrived in SINCERITY RESTAURANT before 11:00am and there was already quite a number of diners.
Brunchin' in BINONDO?
He he he he he!
SINCERITY RESTAURANT menu!
Excited to eat!!
THE FOOD ALPHABET and FOOD IN THE BAG!
And ERICJAZ FOODIES!!!
Yup! The Chinese Dimpol was SO in love with the champoy he bought while walking that he wants to marry it.
Wohooo! Our food is here!
SINCERITY had a lot of raved about dishes but THE FOOD ALPHABET just ordered the most popular ones because we still had many more stops after this.
But EGAD. This is already A LOT!!!!!! How could we manage afterwards???
FOOD ALPHABET ordered a small serving of the SINCERITY Oyster Cake (P200.00) but it already seemed large to me!!
Wow! Look at the fat oysters!
Another specialty of SINCERITY RESTAURANT is their Chicken (P160.00 half).
So crispy crunchy with a light breading.
Hmmmm.... This is another kind of "finger lickin' good!"
We were not really planning to order rice but the food in front of us was just screaming for it. So we had the SINCERITY Kiampong Rice (P80.00 -- small).
ERICJAZ FOODIES with FOOD ALPHABET and FOOD IN THE BAG in SINCERITY RESTAURANT!
The Chinese Dimpol got a bit excited upon seeing this because it's like his favorite Moriquita rice in CAFE ANTIQUA in Lucena.
I can't tell you how many times he said "ANG SARAP NG FRIED RICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
My plate!!! My SINCERITY plate!
We all excitedly dug into the Oyster Cake. I've heard a lot about this specialty and it was my first time to try it!!!
I got so excited that I got a big spoonful and shoved it all in my mouth. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
The Oyster Cake was AWESOME!!!! It was as yum as I dreamed it would be. BUT, you may have to remove some of the sticky cornstarch they use to thicken up the batter because it almost choked me. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
But other than that, I couldn't have enough of it. ME WANT MORE!!!
And in no time...
Inangku! We finished everything and we're now full!!! What will happen to our supposed to be 12 stops???
But you know what? IT WAS SO WORTH IT!!! The FOOD ALPHABET was right. The food at SINCERITY RESTAURANT in BINONDO was more delicious and flavorful!!! For me it had that certain authentic taste unique to Binondo. I don't know if it's because of the atmosphere or if they different chefs in this branch but most definitely THIS is the SINCERITY that I will rather go to even if it's farther from where we live. Sarap!!!!
Yep. What THE FOOD ALPHABET said is true. All of it.
And now BINONDO suddenly became a more enticing place for ERICJAZ FOODIES. Yup food really does that to us.
SINCERE yun ah!
(Sorry I just had to do it. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!)
