Quiapo’s halal must-try spot for home-cooked Southern Filipino cuisine
Home-cooked food from the South
June-nairah Halal is one of Quiapo’s best Halal places. Mrs Makataronong specialises in home-cooked Southern Filipino cuisine, highlighting the culinary flavours of the Maranao and Tausug indigenous peoples of Mindanao. As Muslims, they only serve food that is Halal and they cook it fresh every day.
Spice and everything nice
Try the pinaparan na hipon (shrimp cooked in spicy coconut milk) and riandag na karne (spicy beef), both come highly recommended by Quiapo’s Muslim community and far beyond. A plate will set you back around PHP 40 and comes with free beef stock. Add a cup of white steamed rice for PHP 10.
