OG Spot Comida China de Manila Is 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.

Get excited for Comida China de Manila Libis:
Comida China de Manila is reopening as Comida China de Manila Libis on the ground floor of S&R Libis. They'll now be under a new corporation, dubbed Old Chinatown Food OPC, with a member of the third-generation family of the original owners (who requests to stay unnamed) leading the way. As the new space is smaller (a 50-seater spot that's roughly 126 squaremeters, the family member shares in an exchange with SPOT.ph), they'll also be condensing their menu to focus on bestsellers; ome of the items you can expect to reunite with are the Shrimp Balls, Comida China Soup, and Pinsec Frito.

Comida China de Manila Libis will be at G/F S&R Libis, E. Rodriguez Jr. Ave, Quezon City. For more information, check out Comida China de Manila's Facebook page.
