Classic Filipino cuisine Bacolod style is what you can get from this restaurant!
This place is a classic Bacolod go to restaurant. Their most famous dish is the La Paz Batchoy! Must try it!
Do not go here to sleep. We went here to eat, its one of the few places where there’s actually wifi in the restaurant. So we ordered a grilled seafood and meat platter which was more than enough for a table of 5 or 6. Included in this platter is the famous Coconut Crab which was really good and tasty but most of it was really all the crab fat!

If you love peking duck, this place has perfected it. We usually order 2 ways only - first way would be the usual way where you wrap the skin and meat with hoisin sauce and the second way would be where you fry the bones with salt and pepper and eat it with vinegar. They’re also one of the few high end places where you can have dimsum during dinner and not just lunch time.
Make sure to order sweet and sour pork also, theirs is pretty good too. If you do come here, be sure you’re ready to eat all the cholesterol because basically, only the veggies are healthy!

I’ve actually never tried this place in HK but everyone says its good so I was so happy that it was in Manila already. When we went there, we wanted to pick on several items so we didn’t really order the sets but instead we ordered ala carte items so we can try them. I actually liked it since I haven’t had tonkatsu for a while. They said Yabu is better but its been so long since I ate there so I should try it again to compare.

One of the more popular bars in Manila. Its known mainly as a drinking place but what people don’t know is that the food here is good too. Just be ready for fine dining food but this time I just tried the duck sisig that came with knorr foam and their truffle mac and cheese as a side dish with yum!
Its open 24 hours so when you’re hungry after a late night, its a good option. We went here at 3 am when they were actually already preparing for the breakfast buffet. Staple order would be beef fondue, raclette, and chocolate fondue but this time we tried the cheese fondue and smores. The Cheese Fondue I really didn’t enjoy much since we came from a night out of drinking liquor, the last thing I want to taste in my cheese fondue was the taste of liquor, it was so strong. The smore’s were good but I prefer the on of Kai Restaurant better.

One of the most popular steak houses here. You can never go wrong here with the food plus service is excellent. My favorite orders would be the harvest salad, lorenzos truffle pasta, tinapa roll and of course the steak. They’re not in the pictures (except for the steak) because I eat there so often that I forget to take pictures of the food. Honestly, I don’t eat steak every time I eat there (which was every saturday) but most people that do go there never fail to have steak. They say this is the Peter Luger of the Philippines. What’s nice about it though, that my vegan and vegetarian friends also have something to eat that’s in the menu.
You will need to make a reservation as it usually very full, they have 2 seatings, for lunch its 11:30am and 1:30 pm and for dinner its 6:30pm and 8:30 pm. If you do the early seating you will have to leave by 10 mins before the second seating to make way for the next seating. They also have 2 branches - this one and there’s one in Serendra in Fort Bonifacio Global City which was the original one. I just prefer coming here since the waiters already know me and its more convenient since I go to mass here every saturday.
Don’t forget also to eat order desserts - cheesecake, keylime pie, and pecan pie! You may also bring your own bottle of wine as they don’t charge corkage.

The best of the best! Best thai place in Manila no doubt. Everything has great flavor and service is good. I go there so often that when they see me they already call me by my name and actually know my orders. My staple order would be Grand Salad or Catfish Salad with Yellow Pumpkin Curry (Vegan Menu) and brown rice. No, I’m not a vegan but I just love the sauce. For dessert, their passion fruit pavlova is so good but quite deadly, and of course the mango with sticky rice will always be a good staple.
When Edward Norton was here, rumor was that he ate there every night because he loved it. Just make sure you’re ready to spend 800-1000 pesos per person.

The former chef of Tsukiji put up his own restaurant after he left. I would say it is a pricey Japanese restaurant but their uni sashimi was really fresh and the unagi didn’t taste “fishy” at all. One order of unaju was really full unlike the other servings where they only put 1 pc of Unagi in the box (unfortunately I wasn’t able to take a picture as everyone ate it so fast). I also loved the Meiji Green Tea ice cream, it had a very strong green tea taste and it wasn’t sweet at all. They say its also nice to come here for lunch on weekdays since the bento boxes are much cheaper than dinner time.
