Charlie Wanton Noodle House – a noodles house for everyone !

265 Haig Street, Daang Bakal , 1550  Mandaluyong City -Philippines

 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 .

  1. I’m almost grateful this restaurant still exists. The first and the best beef mami house of manila…we use to order the broth in a separate bowl and perspire ourselves silly with the hot sauce…in it’s earlier days, a costumer may ask for a second bowl of soup which is plain and unflavored by the saturated broth, still, these free extras has an aroma and taste one will look forward to on one’s next visit… Whenever i see myself as “loaded” i’d order the house’s special treat, shrimp mami with mushroom!!! With their signature hot sauce, it’s an experience you wont’t get anywhere…

    1. in its original place at florentino torres my favorite is their shrimp mami, next is their wanton mami. but the best that they have then was the siopao sauce.
