Fried Liempo Sa Palanca

4 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Double deep-fried pork belly! You get a whole styrofoam container that's good for about three people (or two very hungry officemates) for only PHP100 (around USD2)! Best eaten with Mang Tomas (pork liver sauce) and Coke!

  • Don Carlos Palanca Street, Legazpi Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

Falafel Yo!

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

I'm mostly here for their Pita Fries (which @pam always shares with me; thank you 💚), but the falafels are also pretty darn good! 😋

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

"I only like milk tea if it's from CoCo." -@pam 😝 We're still waiting for GrabFood to make this available for delivery again! We've been Panda Milk Tea deprived for weeks 😢

The Pantree Food Hall

2 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Our go-to lunch place. It has more than ten food kiosks, each hawking a different type of fares! My favorites include the Old Fashioned Tapa for spicy tapa, Chang Thai for pad thai, and Suki-Gyouza for gyoza. (Special mention: Komoro Bento's Niku Udon) 🐂🍜🥟

I'm not really fond of burgers, but I'll keep coming back here for the onion rings 😛

Chatime (The Enterprise Center)

1 save

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

I will always (okay, most of the time) say yes to Chatime! They have the most pearls from all of the milk tea chains, which is why they're currently at the top of my list. 😋

Bistro Ravioli (Greenbelt 3)

2 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Not exceptional, but pretty good Italian food. Pasta is al dente, and servings are filling (although they look small). 🍝

Thai Street

Makati City, Philippines • Memory • 

Very affordable (it's even cheaper than Chiang Thai in Pantree)! Food's a hit and miss, but even the hits aren't too remarkable. Got the Pad See Yu, which was super salty. They're still new so I hope they can still improve!

CCFJ Delights Restaurant

3 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Malaysian fusion food! Recommended (and very hyped up) by @theoneandonlytrish. Exceeded expectations! I got the Wanton Mee (Dry) which came with a side of wonton soup and a delish serving of char siew. 😋 The clear winner, though, was @pam and @mela's Curry Pan Mee! 🏆 Extra points for the friendly staff and swift service!

Wildflour Restaurant (Legazpi Village)

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Had our Lemi holiday lunch here! 💚 My personal favorites include the Squid Ink Mafaldine, Casarecce Caccio E Pepe, the Stracciatella, and the vanilla ice cream x Cereal Polvoron combo! 😋 The Kimchi Fried Rice and the Chicken and Biscuits were also good, though!

Stvdio Lab

4 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Food lab of Gallery by Chele, where the chefs test their latest creations! Had the six course tasting menu, of which the stand-outs (for me, at least) were the 8-10 (Octopus-Pinakbet-Shallots), the Heritage (Kare-Kare-Banana Heart-Jamon Iberico), and the Turf (Wagyu-Laing-Smoked Roselle). Special shoutout to the Snap (Red Snapper-Cacao-Eggplant, @cheryl's favorite) and the Torrija (Coconut-Rum-Brioche)!

First discovered this tapa place in Legazpi Sunday Market; and I was thrilled to know they have a regular spot right across the office! 😋 I always get it spicy 🔥

Angel's Pizza - Makati Avenue Branch

2 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Huge pizzas for cheap (when you have the loyalty card)! The Mac & Cheese is surprisingly good. One of our favorite deliveries, no question 😋

Komoro Japanese Dining - The Pantree

1 save

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Go-to Japanese fast food lunch place! A Tonkatsu Bento, which comes with cabbage, rice, and miso soup at PHP 169? Score! 💪🏼 The soba's pretty decent too.

Ante.

2 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Cold tea that comes in cute reusable tumblers! They have some pretty awesome merch in the space beside their tiny "kitchen" ✊🏼 New favorite: Oolong Slayer, their rendition of milk tea—complete with pearls!

Ooma (Greenbelt 5)

4 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

New wave Japanese food that's absolutely heavenly! 👅 In photos: Aburi Maki sampler (salmon skin, truffled steak, scallop and tuna, kimchi prawn and enoki) and Hangar Steak. Not in photos (but my favorite): Uni Udon!!! 🥢

Hawker Chan (Makati)

2 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

The cheapest meal to be awarded a Michelin star is now in Manila! I didn't order the Soya Chicken—the hawker's claim to fame—but the Roasted Pork, Char Siew, and Noodles with Sambal were all delicious (and super cheap!). 😋 The Fried Dumplings were also really good. 🍤

  • 3 West St, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

Trufa Pasta Bar

4 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Build your own pasta shop 5 minutes away from the office. Choose your own sauce, type of pasta (whole wheat options available), and toppings. They didn't have the dough to make their pizzas while we visited, which only gives us an excuse to come back another time! 🍝

Orbites

1 save

Quezon City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

@mela and I found this gem in a bazaar (Medicard's VegFest) in Legazpi Active Park. It's a meat-free, dairy-free snack made of fruits, oats, nuts, seeds, flaxseed meal, and dates. They have three flavors: Mango Bango, Choco Coco (my personal favorite), and Banana Oats. Best eaten when chilled! 😋
