Fairview won’t seem so “Farview” after you see the last entry on this list. ;)

Let’s create a scenario…
Imagine you’re from Parañaque and your special someone lives in Fairview. On an average speed of 60 kph (which is also the Commonwealth speed limit), it takes a minimum of 60 (without traffic) minutes to get to the promised land. It would be a shame to spend just a few hours there because you don’t know where to go. On this note, we’ve got you covered!c

Tri-Mo Shawarma Co. – Bristol St.

Tri-Mo Shawarma is one of Fairview’s best kept secret restaurants. It’s a quick-service restaurant specializing in shawarma and they don’t scrimp on serving, but here’s a twist–aside from the classic shawarma wrap that we all love, they also offer a sizzling variant, which is their signature dish. Customers who’ve tried them say they’re worth queuing for. Other Filipino favorites such as barbecue, bulalo, Filipino breakfast meals and others are also served.
