Recommendation by Lemi
Little Quiapo got its name in reference to the bustling Manila town of Quiapo, but its history reaches back to 1949—when a humble ice cream vendor decided to put up a food stand in a local university. The branch initially attracted parents, who eventually brought their children to enjoy the Halo-Halo (a Filipino shaved ice dessert). These children passed on the tradition to their own children, and the institution has received an inflow of customers ever since. They currently have two branches (neither of which are in Quiapo, incidentally), each one known as a go-to for reasonably priced and delicious Filipino food like their Halo-Halo and Pancit Palabok (noodles in shrimp sauce).
