BALAN's @ route13 DE

I would like to spread the word to Filipino travelers as well as new DE residents. I have been to Balan's several times now. It is a grocery store catering to Filipino patrons as well as people from all walks of life. It also serves as a mini restaurant (one wooden table & bench for 4 people) but... read more
