It’s really hard to believe that a viand could be bought for just Php5 these days, but at the small store of Nanay Mel in Meycauayan, you can enjoy yummy food for just that amount – and rice is also at Php5!

Making sure that you can eat her food on the go, the rice already comes in packs that you can easily bring. There are a lot of choices for you to enjoy, including Pinoy favorites such as bopis, menudo, ham, and Tinolang Manok.

Nanay Mel also offers other menu options, such as kare-kare, still at Php5. With just Php10, you can already enjoy rice and viand, with the option to take your food out to your school or workplace.

Then, you can also enjoy ‘Chao fan’ fried rice, at the same price – and that is already fried rice placed inside a cup, with some bits of hotdog as toppings.

What’s impressive is that this wonderful lady also sells other food for just Php1. Indulge your palate without hurting your wallet with the Php1 food options at Nanay Mel’s store, including cheese sticks, hotdogs, kikiam, and kwek-kwek.

There’s even siomai at 3 pcs for just Php10! In the past she even makes siomai that cost just Php2 but she already had a lot of things to do; thus, she only makes the bigger ones these days but these still come at really affordable prices.
