Dressed in their matching shirts, SethDrea in white and KyCine in black, the Gold Squad is off to another adventure for their YouTube channel. This time the Kadenang Ginto teen stars Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri are going on a food trip in one of Binondo’s famous streets, Ongpin!
The first stop was for some egg pies and siomai. They have not even bought anything, but Francine was already planning on haggling because apparently the food was overpriced. Still, it must have tasted good because they ate right there on the sidewalk. Seth took the time to educate everyone on how to use the bamboo steamer baskets when cooking rice at home.
Next stop was some fresh lumpia at a shop that was built in the 1950s and has been around since. This time Francine did not have to worry about the price because they got the lumpias for free. Kyle was so excited to try them that he almost ate the lumpia’s plastic wrap too. “Mahirap matunaw sa bituka ‘yan,” Seth joked.
Their last stop was at a restaurant where they got to try some shabu-shabu. Andrea was immediately tempted to try the beef tongue and heart. When the food arrived, Kyle bravely volunteered to be their chef even though he does not actually know how to cook. Everyone else was just carefully watching and waiting for the food to be ready. “Parang may mali,” Francine observed. Kyle was confident in his work but according to the servers he actually was not supposed to do anything yet. Luckily, it still tasted delicious.
