Binondo in Manila, Philippines is said to be the world’s oldest Chinatown. The Spanish established it in the 1590’s as a settlement for Chinese Catholics.
Today, it is one of the busiest areas in Manila. This is where visitors could enjoy authentic Chinese food.
A popular place to stop by is Café Mezzanine labeled by CNN as a ‘Must Visit’. The food is delicious and reasonably priced.
