This Father’s Day, take dad on a one-of-a-kind food adventure and go on a Binondo food crawl! If you’re not sure where to start, save yourself the hassle and just visit Lucky Chinatown, where you can taste the best of what Binondo has to offer in one place. Lucky Chinatown is a one-stop destination for an Asian food trip with a safe, convenient, and picturesque environment. The list below includes all the must-tries for Chinese, Cantonese, Taiwanese, and other Asian fares.

Dad’s fried chicken craving will be solved at Sincerity (GF Main Mall, 8516 7088). This cult favorite prides itself on its crispy and tender fried chicken like no other. Make it a party and order more of its Chinese specialties like fried oyster cake, BBQ spareribs, and polanchay with garlic. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the exotic adobo frog or cuck misua soup.

Travel to Taiwan through Shi Lin’s (GF Main Mall, 8516 0321) mouth-watering food selections. We recommend Shi Lin’s braised beef noodle soup, which is a beef shank braised in an aromatic stew for hours to achieve fall-off-the-bone goodness, paired with their classic spiced soup.

On a budget? San Gou La Mien (GF Main Mall, 8256 3518) is a wonderful destination for Chinese hand-pulled noodles and other comfort food. Taste the goodness of its la mien beef noodles and match it with its steamed dumplings. Other steamy soups on the menu include wanton soup, sotanghon soup, ho fan soup, and more.

King Chef (2F Main Mall, 0932 323 1871) serves healthy food and authentic Cantonese cuisine in a fine dining setup. For Father’s Day, treat the whole family to its dim sum platters! It has a roasted platter which includes soyed chicken, roast duck, barbecued pork asado, fried five-spice roll, and soyed cucumber with century egg. Another option is the steamed dim sum platter, where you can devour a spread of hakaw, pork & shrimp siomai, Japanese siomai, beancurd roll, and Taosi spareribs.

One of the more popular Chinese restaurants in the country, Mann Hann (GF Building A, 8523 1599) is perfect for family gatherings. Enjoy great Oriental flavors in its orange chicken, Chinese beef tenderloin, and oyster misua. For rice toppings, try its lechon Macau rice, and fish tofu rice.

Enjoy an outdoor food festival at Asian Street Kitchen, located at Chinatown Walk. This food fair has tables and chairs where people can safely dine alfresco, with festive neon lights displays and colorful hanging lanterns.

Kick-off the adventure at Wai Ying and choose from their array of dim sum and Chinese roasts. Then, try Sio Cha’s modern Hong Kong-style noodles and lechon Macau. Those in the mood for Korean sausages can choose from Corndog 28’s sweet and savory flavors. There’s also Bunsikjip Korean Street Food, which will transport you to the streets of Seoul with its Korean fish cakes, spicy rice cakes, and seaweed rolls. For a quick Japanese flavor trip, hearty ramen, takoyaki, and salmon sashimi are available at JAP.Street. If craving for noodle soups, order a steaming serving of Fudao’s specialty meatball-beef-shrimp sate noodle soup.
