Being a customer in these places, with the air of "gringo" does not help in anything, because everything that is chosen, will be "top quality" with prices above normal, for that type of products !! But, in fact, there is everything for everyone ....

Manila's Chinatown is the largest outside China.It is best experienced on foot, especially to appreciate the sights and colours of local markets. The public streets are busy. Food options seem endless. The Binondo Church is another good spot for a look.
