WATCH: Inside one of Quiapo’s hidden gems during Traslacion 2024
Like many Nazareno devotees, Rappler’s Paterno Esmaquel tries one of Quiapo’s best-kept secrets: a popular stall selling pastil in a Muslim community

MANILA, Philippines – During the annual feast of the Black Nazarene, many devotees make a separate “pilgrimage” a stone’s throw away from Quiapo Church.

It’s one of the hidden gems of Quiapo: a popular stall in a Muslim community that sells the famous Mindanao delicacy called pastil.
