“Tarzan” is not a man but a noodle resto along Calle Real where diners have the chance of viewing how their orders are prepared by the chef who starts with a dough which in a few minutes, is turned into fresh noodles.
At P78 per steaming bowl, the noodle soup serves as a meal with its generous serving of slivers of beef and bean sprouts.
I dropped by Tarzan one fine afternoon and got mixed feeling of being amused by the chef whose adroit hands transform a dough into noodles in matter of minutes. A two-way glass panel separates the dining area from the kitchen whose activities are visible to custormers.
I got dismayed though because no less than the owners thereof and friends drive away non-smoking customers by their cigarettes.
I caught them in camera drinking and smoking while pretending to take pictures of my bowl of steaming noodle soup.
A city ordinance punishes smoking in public places like restaurants, to fine and imprisonment.
