Ever heard of Morisqueta Tostada? Pueco con Agreo Dulce? Camaron Rebosado, Ampalaya con Carne? All these Spanish sounding dishes are actually delicious, authentic Chinese food. Fried Rice, Sweet Sour Pork, Shrimps in Batter and Bitter Melon with Beef are what they are, respectively. And certified foodies of yesteryears did not go hunting for "Chinese Food" when they had food cravings or wanted to eat out with family and friends. They look for "Comida China" (literally Chinese Food in Spanish) which to olds Manilans referred to that distinct style of panciteria fare in Binondo from the early 1900's to the 1970's.
Now, Panciteria San Jacinto- one of the favorite Chinese Restaurants of Manilans in the pre-war and post-war era which has survived to this day- has changed its name to "COMIDA CHINA DE MANILA". Located along E. Rodriguez, Jr. Ave.(C5) in Pasig City, the present-day Panciteria San Jacinto is a favorite destination of Chinese food aficionados in the metro. Big Chinese families, Pinoy families on weekend feast, regular foodies, office workers in the area, and seekers of good chinese food pay regular pilgrimages to the place to satisfy their palates. The lure of bountiful lauriats, all-time Chinese favorites, and the discovery of new things on the Menu (like Dimsum and the unique flavourful Comida China Soup) have lured them to PANCITERIA SAN JACINTO-PASIG since it opened in 1996.

The President of Comida China De Manila
The Owner (The Torres Family) chose to take a different direction from the old panciteria concept of the Pasig restaurant by opting for a more formal and upscale ambience. The food @ COMIDA CHINA DE MANILA remains affordable to its clientele. Served in desired portions to match both pocket and appetite, old favorites and new fare are offered in "poquito" (half small or grazing portions), small, medium and large serving sizes.
These are some of the ALL-Time Favorites @ Comida China De Manila
Catering and in-house feasts are all still part of the COMIDA CHINA DE MANILA offerings.
