  1. Also, you eat most of those viands you had with a cup of steamed white rice… or some chinese fried rice. But, hey, wait, this vid's about a year ago, i'm sure you've heard what i had to say, but thanks for trying some of my country's cuisine.

  2. No need to go to a fancy 5 star restaurant ,,BINONDO is a must stop to eat real authentic Filipino-Chinese food !! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

    Definitely recommend!!

  3. Watching this in the middle of the night, makes me want to buy food outside ๐Ÿ˜ญ Damn! Missing PH ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  4. In my teens and up to my mid 30's I could eat like that but at 64 it'd take me at least three days to eat as much as he did. My guts just can't handle it now.๐Ÿ˜ต

  5. Watching this in 2019. I love Masuki. I'm a masuki girl. The mistake that you did is that you didn't put the whole sauce in the soup. You should pour that sauce into their Chicken asado mami because it's where the taste will come from but yes, their mami is pulled homemade egg noodles. I can buy the noodles for 1/2 or 1Kg.

  6. I heard about your taxi scam experience here in Manila and I'm sorry that you had to experience that. If only I discovered your channel early, I would've offered to drive you around Manila even though I'm no pro in going around the city. But hey, there's Waze. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. 10:24. They call it soup number 5 because if they called it cow penis and testicle soup, no one would buy it. Lol. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  8. You were not able to eat at he famouse maker of Xiao Long Bao and other dumplings ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  9. 3:18 ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

  10. @ 9:52 Mike asks girl, Which is the Penis?
    Girl is like, Huh? This guy never seen a penis before?
    Mike, puts Penis in his mouth. Lol

  11. This the third or fourth video I have watched Mike eat in. Someone explain to me .. HOW THE HECK can he eat like this and keep a fit looking body? I don't get it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Now Iโ€™m really encouraged to visit again Manila especially Chinatown. Iโ€™ve never been there although I studied at a university there. It was very chaotic then. I hope the clean up will encourage more people to explore Manila.

  13. 17:30 the guy behind starting at him while eating those reactions hahaha i would also do that if im also watching him.

  14. "Why do they call it soup #5?"

    Well because if they called it "Cow Dick Soup" it likely wouldn't do as well, I'd wager lmao.

  15. It was called soup number 5 because when the first restaurant started to serve it was on number 5 on the menu. People are ashame to say the word and they just say soup number 5. Now it can be on number 10 on menu and they will say soup number 5.

  16. We love the best of Eng Bee Tin for the home of Hopia, Tikoy and others at Manila Chinatown in Binondo, Manila, Philippines and we love to tasty today.

  17. Sarap na sarap si Kabise tamaan ka ng Hepathitis….pongkwayla…nakikipongkweyla nabichikihe…hekhek hek! Napongkoloy chiringkong nang…

  18. The thing that is on the top of the bico is not pork its coconut thats why is smells like coconut. Notice this pls ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. This guy should've been the one to tour Adam Richman here in the Philippines. He was not able to visit Binondo last time he was here. Which doesn't make any sense because Binondo is the best place to have a food trip here in Manila.

  20. You know Mike there was a rumour back in the days that the Siopao they were serving in Manila China town were cats๐Ÿ˜

  21. Mike looked so nappy after the pineapple, I thought he was gunna say he was going to take a nap at his hotel. But then, it was another restaurant..!

  22. 2:59 Thatโ€™s not pork, thatโ€™s coconut milk fried in its own oil in low low-medium heat till its reduced that it clumps together and you get that toasted coconut bits. Very delicious. Itโ€™s 100% vegan
