Reviewed April 25, 2011

Quik Snack is just the sort of restaurant find we love; unpretentious, good food and very inexpensive. Quik Snack is located in Manila's Chinatown, Binondo on hyper-colorful Carvajal Street. Carvajal is really a block-long alley, not a street, connecting Q. Paredes with Nueva St. It's unlikely your taxi driver will know where it is. Just tell him to take you to the HSBC Bank branch on Q. Paredes in Binondo. Carvajal is directly opposite HSBC. It's also quite close to the Binondo Church. Carvajal is lined with all kinds of shops, restaurants and vendors, including those selling choy sum, a Chinese vegetable we can't find in Iloilo. See http://www.deliciousasianfood.com/2007/06/13/choy-sum-with-oyster-sauce/ This is as close as you'll get in the Philippines to feeling like you're in an alley in Mong Kok, Hong Kong.

I had Lumpia Quitos as an appetizer - P60. Just fantastic. They are a tiny pastry shell filled with herbs, meats and nuts. Sorry my photo is blurry. For my main course I had Crispy Noodles with Beef (P100). The dish was flavored with fresh basil. Carol had fish soup with noodles. We also ordered pancit guisado. These were good but not exceptional. The Quik Snack menu is extensive. We look forward to sampling more of Quik Snack's offerings and further explorations of the shops of Carvajal.
