Coffee Stache is a cozy hole-in-the-wall cafe that serves specialty coffee, small bites, and even beer. It’s for caffeine addicts who want to disappear for a few hours .

La Chinesca is an authentic taqueria which began as a pop-up concept by Chef Bruce Ricketts of Sensei Sushi, Mecha Uma, and Ooma. It’s for taco fans looking to have the real deal when it comes to Mexican food, complete with the hole-in-the-wall dining experience. It’s not for people unwilling to brave the traffic.

8.Bamba Bistro – Aguirre Ave.
Labelled as “Not your average bistro by the corner” says a lot, yet for Bamba Bistro, it’s an understatement. With cross-continental food featuring modern twists from Middle-Eastern, Italian, Filipino cuisine to no-nonsense comfort food, take a bite of exquisite and intelligently-prepared food under the fairy lights. It’s for those who are in for a roller coaster of flavors. It’s not for those who aren’t willing to spend the coin on something unexpected.
