Here are the rest of my recent visit to the melting pot that is Quiapo.
Underpass along Recto Avenue, Quiapo, Manila. I guess Mayor Isko’s clean-up program didn’t reach this part of his jurisdiction.
Recto Avenue corner Quezon Blvd – the haven for thesis bookbinding, trophies, laminations and stuff. This is also the place where fake certificates and diploma are made. This has been this way since my college years – and nothing has change really. It’s like I travelled back in time to the 2000s.
Quezon Blvd, Quiapo, Manila leading to Intramuros area
Quiapo Church, along Quezon Blvd, is a haven for bikers

World-famous Quiapo Church, Manila
Villalobos Street leading to Quiapo Church
If you are into making bracelets made of beads, then Villalobos Street in Quiapo is the place for you.
One of the oldest SM Branch in the Philippines – located along Carlos Palanca Street, Quiapo, Manila. This is also where the famous Excelente Cooked Ham is located.
So many fruits and vegetables seller / vendor in Villalobos and Carlos Palanca Streets in Quiapo, Manila.
Gonzalo Puyat Street, Quiapo, Manila. This street is where the Globe Lumpia House is located. It’s my first time to visit it and I was surprised that it’s a really small place but it’s famous.
This is the famous Globe Lumpia House that sells fresh lumpia. It’s now at P35 per piece – and I find it small in size and lacks the flavor of the lumpia vegetables itself. All I tasted was the garlic.
