Take a tour and try Socorro’s special dish stirred with fury. Have a bite of Lola Ichay’s special palabok with just adash of pride. If you’re up for a bit of exercise, join Magda’s intense way of working up a sweat—but steer clear ofYolanda’s pilates class. Be cautious when wandering around alone, danger slithers unexpectedly.
