Newcomers might find the fish service counter at Manila Oriental Market a little intimidating. There is a ticket dispenser that is always empty, a “Now Serving” sign that always reads “01,” and a ton of people crowded around the counter, all waving what appear to be little raffle tickets.

Never fear, says indychef. It’s confusing at first, but once you become a regular everything goes smoothly. Don’t feel intimidated by the number system – just ignore it. “I always do,” says indychef. “You just gotta hustle a bit and grab the guy who’s in charge. He’ll take care of the rest. Prices are negotiable – don’t tell anybody.”
