What you'll do
We will meet in front of the Fruit stand close to the Market 2 Entrance. I will give a specific budget for the main ingredients (which you can add to) and teach you to haggle with the local vendors to get the best price from the fresh catch of the day. We will then take these ingredients to my favourite restaurant and have them prepare it the way we like them. I would recommend some local preparations for you to sample. While waiting I can give insights on the City's history or your next destination from Manila if you're exploring the provinces. Once the food is served, the only thing to do is enjoy! I will then take you to your next destination or back to your accommodation within Metro Manila.
I'm Omar, an Architect. 2 years ago I retired from my day job to pursue a startup featured on CNN Philippines, The Final Pitch (PH version of Shark Tank). Initially, I wanted to establish my own business to have control of my time & finance my love for travels documented on my blog (www.moleinthefoot.blogspot.com) The travel bug bit me first, with Airbnb Experiences & I now offer 8, one for every time of the day! Haha! I am currently shifting my startup to focus on weekend tours doing road trips to provinces further out of Manila, which I will make available through my site (rainbowasia.co) I have been to 49 of the 81 provinces of the PH, most of ASEAN & Australia. I was raised in the historical part of Manila, & my university within the walls of Intramuros. Check out my IG: @omar.palero, @travellingphilippine, & @rainbowasiatravel
