Oldest restaurant in the Metro!
Are you familiar with restaurant named Ambos Mundos? It ranked number 2 in the Spot.ph Top 10 Oldest restaurant in Manila. Ambos Mundos means “both worlds”, a combination of the past and the present, the east and the west and the Philippines and Spain.
It was opened in 1888 by my sister-in-law’s family, the de leon and Gaudinezes. Yes, you heard it right, this restaurant is owned by my sister-in-law’s family. I will not elaborate on the history since there are some legal issues concerning the legal owner of the said restaurant. I will post about it some other time with my sister in law’s permission.
Anyway, other restaurants included in the list are the following:
- New Toho Food Center (1888)
- Ma Mon Luk (1920)
- Ramon Lee’s Panciteria (1929)
- Aristocrat (1936)
- Boy Ching Woo (1939)

- Max’s Restaurant (1945)
