After a hearty breakfast at mom and Tina's we decided to order our merienda at Comida took out their best selling pancit and 1/4kl asado and pata hamon. Overall the taste is still good and the price is just ok for 790. We will try to dine in here. Cheers

Last Saturday, I organized the reunion of my fellow supervisors from my first company and the event was held at Comida China De Manila. Google brought me to an article and Comida was one of the featured restaurants. Of course I searched them on |ooloo too!

This chinese restaurant got a check on all the things I'm looking for - Affordable food with decent looloo reviews, there's a private room that can hold 20 to 40 people and the place is (almost) situated in between Makati and Quezon City. I figured I have to be considerate to people living in the South and North.

A room can be rented for 10,000 pesos worth of food. I would have to say it's better that what I expected. Wooden accents with a homey and classic feel and the aircon was functioning well.

I chose function room 3 and got two tables with set menu 3 for 10 persons costing 5654 pesos. The viands include:

1 Sweet Corn Soup
2 Camaron Con Jamon
3 Fried Chicken
4 Pancit Canton
5 Lumpiang shanghai
6 Beef w/ Broccoli
7 Yang Chow Fried Rice
8 Almond Jelly

I believe I've tried everything except for their almond jelly. Nothing worth remembering for years but lets just say the food served its purpose. My fellow sups and now considered friends enjoyed the dishes and got their money's worth.

I would recommend Comida and book one of their rooms again for another event in the future.

Comida China De Manila looks plain and unassuming from the outside.  It reminds me of the place where James Bond went to look for the chick who has connection with Javier Bardem in Skyfall (pardon the Bond reference)

The very first Libertad Coaches Reunion was held here.  We reserved one of their private rooms for the event.  I was pleasantly surprised upon entering,  the place looks classy (not gangster den from Skyfall).   Classic furniture and good lighting.  The private room was spacious,  three tables and can probably fit more than 15 people. 

We had a gastronomic feast of MSG proportions (kidding).  They specialize in comfort Chinese food.  Completed RDA for hungry individuals - Go,  Grow and Glow.

Yangchow,  Lumpiang Shanghai,  Fried Wanton,  Nido Soup,  Roasted Chicken,   Breaded Prawn with Bacon on top,  Pancit,  Beef with Veggies (not sure if it's swamp cabbage).

The dish that stood out for me is the shaghai,  chicken and yang chow.  The deep fried logs filled with meat is crispy and really yummy.  The ratio of meat filling and wrapper is perfect,  you get to taste the meat!  The yang chow us seasoned well,  MSG is very subtle.  This can be eaten sans viands.  The chicken is cooked well,  the meat is moist and flavorful.  Suffice to say that we had a very satisfying meal.

The service is good as well,  the wait staff is very accommodating in taking photos of a noisy crowd.  They assisted us on all of our needs.  Plastic wrappers and brown paper bags are readily available for any leftover food.  And oh,  the loo is squeeky clean and looked mighty fancy.

The Shrimp Balls were good as what was said in the reviews, but the fare was not as outstanding as advertised. Just so-so.

A family type restaurant serving old-time chinese & filipino favorites. I highly recommend the shrimp balls, beef with ampalaya, and beef rice. Order anything on their extensive menu and you can't go wrong! (Parking can be a b**ch during peak hours though...)

Craved for old-fashioned Chinese food and as always, Comida China did not disappoint. Previously Panciteria de San Jacinto, they serve classic Binondo Chinese/Cantonese food since way, way before. My mom and uncles said they used to eat at the Panciteria when they were still young.

We got my mom's favorite Pata Jamon (with pickled green papaya), Tito (boiled in soy sauce), Sweet Corn soup, Camaron Rebusado, Beef w/ Mushrooms, Salted Fish fried rice, and bottomless Dalandan juice.

Everything was oh so good!! Attentive staff (they got star-strucked when Sunshine Cruz came in for dinner 128540) and reasonably-priced. 128077128077128077

First time here! Ate lunch here with the non-Chinese side of my family (and let me tell you, the Chinese side eats in Chinese restaurants 24/7 so I was overdosing on Chinese food that week 128514). It was a Sunday and packed with families; it's a good thing we made reservations.

Ordered their pinsec frito, camaron rebosado, lumpiang shanghai, shrimp balls, hakao, sweet and sour fish, and a bunch of other dishes I honestly can't remember. 128557

Their pinsec frito is a must try!! We ended up getting extra orders of this. I probably had like 5-6 that day lol it's too good for my life 128555 Dip it in their special sweet n sour sauce, it's the best. 128522

Other highlights of our lunch were the lumpia, camaron rebosado and the shrimp balls. The hakao was really dense, a little too dense for me.

Service was kind of slow - understandably, since there were tons of huge groups having lunch there that day.

PS: Just got the Chinese Chow Fan badge! Yaayy!! Seems pretty apt hahaha 128513

The best Shrimp Balls in town! I just can't stop munching on it and i think i can consume 4pcs of these heavenly masterpieces. The coating is bread bits giving the exterior extra crunch. But inside is a firm ball of reconstituted shrimp meat that is savoury and juicy. Tucked neatly inside is a piece of shrimp which keeps the texture moist. Dip it into a sweet and sour sauce which is their own creation too. Pair the dish with yang chao rice and steamed pork spareribs and all is well. Don't order their siomai though, because its like fishball wrapped in wanton. Overall, i still liked the place so much that i can keep in lunching their with zero complains. It deserves a five-star :)

My family and I celebrated dad's birthday here and it's all our first time to dine in this resto. Place looks fancy and it wasn't that crowded (Tuesday). We ordered yang chow, BBQ rice with Chinese sausage, cameron rebosado, bird's nest soup, fish in sweet and sour sauce, spicy and salty squid, pork siomai and miki bihon. Always ask the waiter which size of the viand is applicable to your group so as not to order too much or less.

I liked all dishes. The siomai was big that I only ate one. My sister and I really liked the bihon. I could eat here again for special occasions and might as well try their other food.
