Excellent for nostalgia lovers, but...

It is exactly what you expect - no frills food, chewy noodles, five-spiced flavored beef brisket and their humble wontons.

But the soup for their noodles isn't anything special. We saw the can of Knorr chicken powder in the cooking area and that explains it.

The Perfect Beef Wanton Noodle

4

Rainy days can bring forth a lot of memories,
the sort that begins with a singular idea and ends up with a consuming thought, one that inevitably leads one to action, and if by forces greater than ourselves, this action is not satisfied then one is left to a state of wanting that borders on insanity...haay Beef Wanton Special...ganun kasarap sa Charlie's!!!

The huge bowl comes to you heaping with soft soft beef, delectable wanton, and their very own hand rolled noodles. The kind of noodles that has a taut texture, one that you can actually bite.
The soup...the soup!...Their soup reflects decades upon decades of working to reach soup perfection. I do not state this lightly, taste their soup and you'll know how serious this recipe is. I have it on good authority that this has been with the family that owns Charlie's for fifty years...FIFTY YEARS!

Each component of this meal finds a special juncture and blends into a signature noodle meal that you are not likely to forget.

Try their pata tim, crispy noodles, Charlie's noodles, chopsuey rice and you'll find the same devotion dedicated to their Beef Wanton Special Noodles.

You'll be a better man than I if you can do this on your third, fifth, tenth return...admittedly I haven't tried their entire menu...I still find myself ordering the same thing over and over again...yes...Beef Wanton Special.
