Ma Mon Luk[edit]

Born in Guangdong, China, Ma Mon Luk was an elementary school teacher in Guangzhou when he decided to emigrate to the Philippines in 1918. Arriving penniless in Manila, Ma Mon Luk decided to peddle chicken noodle soup, utilizing egg noodles. Ma Mon Luk soon opened his first restaurant in Binondo. By the 1950s, Ma Mon Luk and his mami were nationally known and Ma Mon Luk became the iconic Chinese restaurant.
