The Big Little Store in the Hill

After a toxic day at work, my friend and I rushed to this store at the Gilmore area in San Juan to buy “cough mixture” to cure my colds.

The store turned out to be a mini-grocery for Chinese delicacies, snacks and other items you’d usually find in Binondo.

Right in the middle of the busy district known for computers and gadgets, you’ll find this simple store with a small canteen.

There also have all kinds of noodles and the dimsum you’d want to have on your homestyle hotpot. 

And of course, those all-time favorite snacks you had when you were still a grade-schooler. (Oppsss, champoy is not just for me!)

That spicy pusit and pop beans, I’ll not exchange for microwave popcorns on a movie night at home or my Koreanovela marathon.
