Recommendation by Lemi
New Toho doesn’t look its age, but it’s the oldest restaurant in Manila. It’s old enough to have allegedly had Philippine hero Jose Rizal dine there as a student. Built in 1888 by five Chinese immigrant friends, this Binondo restaurant was originally named Toho Antigua Panciteria, until a fire destroyed the building in 1984. Asado (roasted pork belly cold cuts), Toho Soup (pork and vegetables in a heavy soup), Yang Chow Fried Rice (Chinese-style fried rice), Toho Beef (tender beef in special gravy), and Pancit Canton (stir-fried noodles) are must-haves on the table. For an extra sinful treat, bite into the buttery, fatty goodness of New Toho Food Center’s Camaron Rebosado (breaded shrimp and pork fat).
