“One of the best, most elaborate and expensive buffets I ever had to-date. Located in prestigious Manila Hotel, right in heart of Manila's Tourist district. Week Day Lunch for just over CAD$65 (2700 pesos), I would definitely say it is worth every penny.
Buffet is spread over a large dining area…”?more

“I once went here and had an order of steamed dumplings... By myself. They are THAT good. But I may just have just have a big appetite. But don't just take my word for it. Head on over to Binondo (they also have a stall in Divi's 168) and try a hearty plate of dumplings and/or their bomb Knife Mien!…”?more
“If you're looking to dine in a place that serves authentic Chinese cuisine, look no further that Ma?osa Ongpin. It is hands-down my favorite place to eat in in Chinatown.
Gosh, where do I even start? Let's just say that I found out about this place since my mother used to eat here since she was a…”?more
“This was the first place we headed to once we got settled in our hotel. Lol That's how good this place is! Their food is definitely 5 stars!

Pro Tip: The biryani rice is a sleeper hit!

“This is one of my favorite spots to go to when I'm in Manila. Their jjajangmyun (black bean noodle) rivals that of ones I've had in Seoul. The best part is that they're open 24 hours so it's a perfect place for a late night bite.”?more

911 Kapitan Tikong Street Corner Leon Guinto Street
“It took us awhile to forgive Samgyupsalamat. At their Kapitan Tikong branch months ago, we were very unsatisfied with the tough meat they served us. We used to be regular customers there so we knew our meat.
Our visit at this new branch redeemed us as regular customers again. We were so happy to be…”?more
“I've always enjoyed the sea, and even garbage-infested Manila Bay calls out to me with its siren song. Back in my college days, I like to run along Roxas Boulevard, take a right when I reach CCP, and then watch the sunset from Harbor Square. You can choose from a bunch of restaurants here if you…”?more
“Since 1928 this place is a old Filipino establishment.
The review is really about their famous chicken on a stick. Though the meat is non discernible from other bbq meats. It was tender with a delish glaze and charred to perfection.
Eggs sunny up was over cooked and meh.
Adobo that came with was…”?more
“Hands down my favorite place to eat in in Taft Avenue!
Ababu opened about a year ago and hasn't lost its momentum since, well at least for me. They serve Persian and Mediterranean foods which are two of my favorites! The best part? It's just a block away from my building so if you do visit,…”?more
“Baked Bun with BBQ Pork:
This will always be in our list of orders. That outer crunch concealing very hot, sweet, and meaty fillings always impresses us.
Beancurd Skin Roll with Pork & Shrimp:
I found this fascinating. It's not our regular order and I enjoyed its overall flavor. This will be…”?more

G/F, One Oasis Place, 2663 Sandejas St, Vito Cruz, Malate
“From the name itself, I think it's already obvious what Phillypinas has to offer. This establishment brought Philadelphia's most iconic cuisines here in the Philippines. The perfect example would be their 9-incher Cheesesteaks, which are always served with fries on the side.
The moment I walked…”?more
“I have always been a fan of any place that offers food with an amazing value. The food court at Robinson's has this place called Handaan which delivers just that.

You can choose how spicy you want for the dish: none, mild, or full spicy. Me, I'd always like to be original spicy flavors of Indian…”?more
“I discovered Chariya's Thai Kitchen because of my frequent visits to 168 Shopping Mall. I was very much pleased to find out that in the middle of all the fast food chains in the food court of 168, I'd be able to discover really good Thai food. Through my further research, I found out that Chariya…”?more
“If you're the type of person who likes to rendezvous, Purple Yam in Malate is one of those places for that.
