Tomas Morato is never short on new restaurants to visit. There’s always a new one popping up on every corner, and because the actual boundaries of Tomas Morato are debatable, there are a lot of corners. In a neatly tucked away food hub is a plethora of restaurants that will satisfy any sort of hunger pang including Kusina Juan Republika.

The interiors of the restaurant are a simple mix of white walls, black furniture, and an array of Filipino decor plastered on the walls. There’s also al fresco seating right outside the restaurant if you’re a fan of fresh air.

Kusina Juan Republika is your classic Filipino restaurant but they offer small twists to their dishes that keep things fresh. The recipes are all homemade and made with a lot of love. Don’t mistake them for fusion or modern Filipino though, you won’t find any of that here. Just vibrant, honest-to-goodness Filipino food.
