What you'll do

After meeting up, we'll take a walk through one of the newest and most vibrant part of Metro Manila as I share with you histories, and other information about the capital of the Philippines and the 16 cities that make up the greater part of it.

We'll arrive at the Night Food Market and dive into the stalls as we sample various delicacies and iconic Philippine street food.

Now, this is where the adventurous get separated from the meek, here you must keep an open mind and a hungry stomach as we try out iconic street food such as isaw, betamax, walkman, BBQ, dynamite, kikiam, and chicharon to name a few!

I'll be explaining what animal and what part of the animal we will be eating, how it was prepared and why it looks bright orange?!.

No worries, we have a lot of local beers and fruit juices to wash it all down.

After all the food and drink, well walk for a few minutes towards a local restaurant where we will have some sweet treats to top off a casual night of good friends, good food and good cheer!

Hello!

My name is Jian. I'm the senior storyteller at Explore Manila Tours.

Because I am passionate and proud of my Filipino heritage I love creating authentic experiences for visitors who want to explore Manila with me.

As co-founder of this Manila-based tour and events company, I am focused on curating activities that are warm, authentic and meaningful.

My mission is to change the "Don't go to Manila. Go to the Beaches" mindset.

Sure, Philippine beaches are fantastic. But Manila is a terrific urban destination bursting with food, culture and history.

Join me and we'll take a dive deep into the heart and soul of Manila, Pearl of the Orient.

This is 1 of 3 experiences I offer here on AirBnb.

Where you'll be

We will be in the Bonifacio Global City (BGC), one of the newest and most modern and vibrant parts of Metro Manila.

We will meet up and walk through the heart of BGC as we make our way to the Night Food Market where we will spend most of our time discovering the various local food and drinks available.

Towards the end of our tour, we will walk towards one of my favorite restaurants for a cherished local dessert.

I'm very glad I took this tour as soon as I arrived. Not only did i have a great time but i walked away feeling confident about eating and traveling in the Philippines. Jian is my favorite kind of food guide in that he shared both the history of the things we were eating and fun personal stories about. And of course everything was delicious. Come on an empty stomach!!

Went on this food tour with my wife, and it was a really worthwhile experience! There is a lot of delicious food included as part of the tour, and Jian's clearly put in a lot of thought into which dishes to get, so that it would suit a variety of palettes while also keeping it interesting for the more adventurous food eaters too. Jian himself was a fantastic host - punctual, responsive, friendly and very knowledgeable about food / Philippines history in general. He made the tour special with his enthusiasm and knowledge, and if I come back to Manila, would definitely go on another tour with him!

Jian's food tour was a great way to try food that we would not have tried on our own! Even as a Filipino, I tried food I had never had before. Not only did we learn about the food but Jian also shared knowledge about the history and culture of the area and answered all of our questions! We highly recommend trying this experience if you want a great way to explore Filipino food!

Jian was a great tour guide! He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the Philippines. Tour is a good introduction into Filipino street food, especially if you’re not in Manila for too long. Thanks Jian!
