Charlie Wanton Special restaurant
I always pass-by this home-style noodle restaurant whenever i visit my relatives in San Juan and Mandaluyong City. However this is my first -time to blog about this place. ( Thanks to the Uy family who brought us there for lunch !)
According to the employee, the first restaurant was located at Florentino Torres street in Santa Cruz, Manila on 1958. There are many factors ‘why’ this noodle house moved from the old location ( Manila ) . The blending of Filipino and Chinese cuisine is very evident with their long list of favorite menus .
Much of the downtown Manila experience is still retained. It is unpretentiously a house turned into a restaurant. It has no frills and looks probably as it did decades ago. . The proprietor is Mr. John Fernandez which is a always there at the restaurant. Older generation remembers that this noodle house is almost at par with Ma Mon Luk or Manosa .
