Comida China de Manila: New Name, Same Great Food

An old restaurant gets a new name, but the links with its past remains with the same cuisine and flavors known for generations. Panciteria de San Jacinto, now Comida China de Manila, continues to serve old Chinatown style favorites (see the Dude's previous post on Panciteria de San Jacinto at 

Fried Prawns with Alexander Sauce, sweet and tangy, with a little heat. Fancy name, but the flavors are familiar. 

The Comida China Cold Cuts Combination Platter, with century egg, pata jamon, lechon macau, and seaweed, different flavors and textures in a platter.

The Hot and Sour Soup, brings back a lot memories.

Smoked and cured meats on display, just like any good Chinatown restaurant. The name may be different, but the flavors and memories remain.  After all these years, it's still the place for old Chinatown style comfort food.

Comida China de Manila is located at the FRDC Building, 106 E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue, C5, Pasig City or call 671-5942 for inquiries.

  3. Hi Gerry!

    This is Paolo from Comida China de Manila. First of all we would like to express our sincerest gratitude for the very kind words. It really warms our hearts when we hear stories of those reminiscing about the Binondo food of yesteryear when they eat at our restaurant. We're glad you enjoyed the food and we look forward to seeing you again. By the way, we've been renovating and we have a brand new main dining room. It'll be ready to go in the next few weeks and we'd love to see you there!

    If you haven't already, we'd really appreciate it if you'd like us on Facebook at

    Many thanks,

    Paolo Garde
