    Is that across from Holy Child? I thought that store has been there since forever? I guess you could ask the employees who work there.

    Yes the one across Holy Child, before it became Ricky's. I remember there used to be a restaurant/eatery.

    this would have had to be before the mid 90s, ricky's has been there since their original burned down, and that was before then... im thinkin 80s at least?

    "Tita Rosa's House of Ill Repute and Greasy Spoon" perhaps? Or maybe I'm thinking of someplace else.

    80's? but I was born on the 95th. I used to go to Holy Child a lot for my check ups back then. All I remember. is that while waiting for the doctor, me and my grand mother would have lunch there... I think my age range during that time was around 4-6ish..

    The original Ricky's & the old Times Mercantile were of wooden construction, side by side where the new Uy Matiao's hardware store is on Perdices Street, before they burned down, (causing the death of a young girl, the owner's niece I think). Would the restaurant on Legaspi Street, have possibly have been called Manson's? I was here around that time, but never ate there, I did however eat at new Manson's, which doubled as a computer repair & coffee shop then a calendaria(spelling?) type place which was located in the new Uy Matiao building complex after it was built. (The owners are all related I believe anyway).
