10. Ooma – Bonifacio High Street

Last month’s #9

Ooma is a modern Japanese restaurant by the Moment Group and young acclaimed chef Bruce Ricketts, the same partnership that brought us Mecha Uma. Ooma, a wordplay on Uma meaning ‘good’, promises bold Japanese flavors at affordable prices. It’s for people looking for quality sushi at affordable prices. It’s not for people looking for ramen. We recommend the Soft Shell Crab Taco-Maki, Hangar Steak and Uni Udon. Our insider tip is that at Ooma, you get to ‘brush’ (not dip) soy sauce on your sushi. P.S. Servers roam around with buckets giving out unlimited rice.

From the same team behind Las Flores, Rambla and La Lola, Tomatito is a sexy tapas bar from Shanghai serving Spanish-influenced dishes by acclaimed chef Willy. Its aesthetic is inspired by Spanish bars in the 80s which provides a retro fluorescent atmosphere. It’s for friends looking to dine out over great food and drinks. It’s not for diners who prefer traditional Spanish dishes, as their cuisine focuses on fusion interpretations. We recommend the Salmon TNT, Explisiones de atun y Tomatito, and the Montaditos de Gambas. Our insider tip: Their tables fill up fast, so make sure you call ahead to reserve!

Wildflour Café + Bakery offers international fare and specialty pastries, famous for being the first purveyor of the wildly popular cronuts in Manila. It’s for people who enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch in a place that always reminds you of Sunday mornings. It’s not for office employees who want quick meals for their weekday lunch break. We recommend their grilled cheese salad and soup combo, mushroom salad, pulled pork sliders and their bestselling kimchi steak fried rice. Don’t forget their über moist to-die-for chocolate cake for dessert! Our insider tip is to get pastries at 50% off after 7pm.

Hey Handsome is a hip Peranakan restaurant famously headed by Chef Nicco Santos of Legaspi Village cult favorite, Your Local. In case you didn’t get the memo, Peranakan cuisine is a combination of Chinese ingredients and Malay/Indonesian spices. It’s for foodies with curious palates. It’s not for people who prefer traditional Asian dishes. We recommend their Bebek Penyet (duck), Kambing Buah Keluak and Nasi Lemak. Fun fact: The restaurant name came from the “friendly greeting uncles and aunties would give to customers lining up for food in Singapore”, as reported by CNN Philippines. Watch out, they’re about to open for lunch service soon.

Jin Joo Korean Grill is a hip Korean restaurant offering a mix of the classics and a whole new set of fresh innovative Korean dishes. They are the first to offer the Cheese BBQ Ribs, a dish most probably inspired by the popular James Cheese & Back Ribs in Seoul, South Korea. It’s for young foodies looking for a unique Korean experience in Manila. It’s not for people looking for unlimited BBQ deals. We recommend Jin Joo’s 8 Flavours Samgyeopsal, Dak Galbi, Cheese Dung Galbi and Galbi Jim. Our insider tip is you can wrap your ribs with cheese on your own or ask a server to assist you. Read our full feature here.

Shaburi is an all-you-can-eat healthy Japanese shabu-shabu from Japan that offers unlimited premium meats, fresh seafood, organic vegetables and a buffet of appetizers and other bites. Unlike other shabu-shabu restaurants that have one communal pot for cooking, Shaburi offers each guest their own personal pot. It’s for big family or barkada dinners. It’s not for anyone who don’t enjoy eating quickly, there’s a time limit. We recommend their value-for-money Shaburi Wagyu all-you-can-eat course. Our insider tip is: The same course menu should be selected by all customers in the same table. Read more here.

Va Bene (which means “it’s good” in Italian) has been named one Manila’s best Italian restaurants one too many times and is known for serving fresh handmade pastas by Italian Chef Massimo Veronesi. It’s for pasta lovers who can’t get enough of perfect al dente pasta dishes. Portions are good for sharing if you’re not a big eater. It’s not for people who hate carbs. We recommend Chef Massimo Veronesi’s bestsellers, which are the Black Ink Tagliolini and Organic Eggs Tagliatelle. Even the complimentary bruschetta with salsa dip is good. Our insider tip is ask fir their chilli olive oil for a spicy kick. Read our full feature here.
