cafe mezzanine

Our first food stop in the Big Binondo Food WOK is at Cafe Mezzanine which is located at the corner of Ongpin and Yuchengco streets. This place is also dubbed as the fireman's coffee shop since the owner is an active officer in the chinese firemen volunteer association and the walls of the shop is adorned with firemen's hats! We were even encourage to don the hats and pose with a nuzzle and pretend we are firemen :)

They served us kiampong, it is salted fried rice with peanuts (my first time to eat this food) and we were also served with soup, and was advised that kiampong is best eaten by pouring the soup in the rice, for beverage we were handed iced brewed coffee. by the way, its an eat all you can rice.


At the ground floor is Chuan Kee food store which is also very busy at the time we visited.

EDIT: i forgot to mention that while we were there, a group of kids presented a "lion dance" similar to the dragon dance but the head is that of a lion and its shorter, kinda like a cute dog this lion dance is... and this lion had two kids as performer and they eagerly await treats and the lion kisses anyone who gives a treat :)
