OG Spot Comida China de Manila Is Making a Comeback

After closing their original Pasig outpost in May, they're making a comeback.

Chinese food has a special way of hitting the spot for Filipinos, and Comida China de Manila was one go-to spot you could rely on for no-fail, hearty Binondo-style fare. They've been around since 1996, earning them a steady slew of regulars, but hearts were broken as they announced their closure just last May. In a happy twist of events, though, the resto's making a bit of a comeback with the opening of Comida China de Manila Libis very soon.
