Also known as the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of La Naval de Manila. This church is the largest church in Metro Manila and one of the biggest in Asia. It is home to Nuestra Señora del Santísimo Rosario or La Naval de Manila, an icon to Catholics and devotees. An almost century-old pipe organ resides inside a church, as well as a columbarium, mortuary, and a museum that holds precious artifacts, and works of art, some crucifixes dates back to when the Sto. Domingo Church was located in Intramuros, before World War II blew up.
Pares is a meal that consists of beef asado (beef stewed in a sweet soy sauce), garlic fried rice and a bowl of beef broth soup. The soup is traditionally made from the broth in which the meat is simmered in until tender then seasoned with onion, garlic, peppercorns, chives, and onion leeks. Some Filipino restaurants also offer the option to serve the dish with an accompaniment of noodles; in the case of the Original Pares and Mami House, they offer a bowl of mami, which is noodle soup made with wheat flour noodles and topped with chicken, beef, pork or wonton dumplings. The Original Pares and Mami House has been around for decades and, for Quezon City locals, is home to the best pares in the city. Similar in set up to a Japanese noodle house, service is counter-style. Open from 6:30 a.m. to midnight, the place is always full, with customers not only from Quezon City but from all over the metro flocking over and lining up for their mouth-watering pares.
