Recommendation by Lemi
In 1929, a Chinese immigrant and humble waiter decided to open his own restaurant. His name was Ramon Lee, and he decided to open a panciteria, which back then people flocked to for food that combined Chinese, Spanish, and even Filipino flavors. One of the items on the menu at Ramon Lee’s Panciteria was the Fine Meal, which included Pancit Bihon (Filipino stir-fry noodles), Fried Rice, and Fried Chicken (which was back then a luxurious dish only eaten by the wealthy). Lee threw in some soup and a banana, and the rest was history. The restaurant remains to this day, with its staff and owners hard at work to maintain the quality and taste that gained a following almost a century ago.
