FOOD STOPS: Ma Mon Luk

Image
I do have a lot of good memories in my childhood especially with food which is where we usually bond and talk. And one of the most memorable is when be brought me to this old Chinese restaurant in Cubao called Ma Mon Luk. Its just the two of us enjoying a hearty siopao and sometimes mami. Though there are fast food places in the area that I also dined at, the memories with this restaurant has been the most cherished memory of my late father.
Sadly, times changed and he left us too soon. Only left with me is the nostalgic feel of the moments he had eating. Today Ma Mon Luk still stands but only with 2 branches left (Quezon Avenue and Quiapo), which I can't confirm in my memory that I also tried those branches, what matters most is the taste and experience that will bring back memories. 


Ma Mon Luk has endured the test of time and also the changes in society. With the ever changing Pinoy lifestyle that indulges now on fast food and quick fixes, Ma Mon Luk reminds and takes us back to …

In the modern society we have to day with every world cuisine is now available via the number of restaurants in the metro, it's time to break away from the present time and go back to the simple era in the Philippines. And the best place for that is within the walls of Intramuros.


The famed walled city still have its charm of the old Manila which used to the the seat of power back in the Spanish colonial period. And even if the district was ravaged back in World War 2, it is slowly brought to life by the Intramuros Administration by rehabilitating and rebuilding the glory of the walled city. Now we talk about going on a historical and cultural food trip inside intramuros, the best place to start is in Plaza San Luis Complex, which I think is the best place that gives that old walled city feel. And in this block, we came across BARBARA's Restaurant. A family business managed by JC Delos Reyes, whose mother is where the name came from. Barbara's is built inside an old house wi…
