Traditional Cantonese - Comida China de Manila

There may be a lot of Chinese restaurants to choose from in Metro Manila itself, but my list of establishments to go for is quite short.  One of them would be Comida China de Manila found along E. Rodriguez Avenue that connects to C-5.  Not very easy to miss - it has the Mom & Tina Bakery Cafe as close neighbor, and you are first greeted by ample parking space as you cruise along the highway.

Before it was called by its present name, it used to be known as Panciteria de San Jacinto, and even before that, the place where the restaurant now stands used to be a bowling alley.  Thus, the floors leading toward the back are all made of polished wood panels.

Despite the change of name, and more inviting interiors, the service is more friendly and efficient than ever, and they still serve the same delicious Cantonese fare they always have.  There are three things we go for here - the Bird's Nest Soup, the Camaron con Jamon, and the Salted Fish Fried Rice. 

We also like their Pork and Shrimp Siomai presented the old way - large pieces that wont even fit your mouth.  This is cheap eats too as you dine in warmly lit, homey interiors.  For everything that we ordered plus a dish of beef and onions and pata tim, all in poquito sizes (also comes in small, medium or large servings depending on your crowd), with drinks, this feast only cost us Php1,373 (around USD32).  

But you'll have to forgive me for my inadequate photos here.  By the time I realized that I should take shots, we were halfway through everything!
