Goodbye Liempo: Manang's Clubhouse at Ateneo Is Closing Down
You will be missed.
(SPOT.ph) Sorry to break hearts this fine Wednesday but what was once a series of tweets is now officially true: Manang's Clubhouse at Ateneo is closing down. Not to be confused with the chicken joint (which has a branch along Katipunan Avenue), the small eatery by Ateneo's Covered Courts has been offering the best (at least if you ask any Atenean) grilled liempo since 1990.
According to an official memo by Associate Dean for Student and Administrative Services, Marie Joy R. Salita, Manang's Clubhouse isn't renewing their contract for the coming school year to give way to the retirement of Manang Puring (or Mrs. Rentosa): "[Mrs. Rentosa's] health has not been as robust as she wishes it could be and they have decided that it is best to follow their original plan to enjoy as many years as they possible in retirement." There's no final closing date yet, so be sure to hurry and get that one last grilled liempo meal*.
Manang's Clubhouse is at Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City.
*Update as of July 5, 2017 at 12:54 p.m.: According to the official Facebook page of Ateneo de Manila University, Manang's Clubhouse closed on July 3, 2017.
