10. Mecha Uma – Fort Bonifacio
With Sensei Sushi and Ooma in his tail of culinary achievements, one thing is certain: Chef Bruce Ricketts knows his sushi. Mecha Uma, meaning ‘absurdly delicious’, offers a more fine dining and out-of-the-box experience with it’s 10-course omakase where Chef Bruce personally prepares and serves the dishes. Reservations are required to get a seat for the degustation.
9. Bai Nian Tang Bao – Uptown Parade
Last month’s #4
Bai Nian Tang Bao is a specialty Chinese restaurant tucked away in Uptown Parade. They serve an array of fried rice dishes, noodles, and other hot dishes but people come for the soup dumplings. It’s for dumpling lovers who want to try out-of-this-world xiao long bao. It’s not for foodies looking for fusion or modern cuisine. We recommend their Crab Roe and Pan Fried Xiao Long Bao and their famous Giant Tang Bao. Our insider tip: Ask for a paper straw to go with your Giant Tang Bao. You’re gonna need it!
Uptown Parade, 36th Street Corner 9th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig

Last month’s #5
Sunnies Cafe is the spin-off cafe of LA-inspired power brand, Sunnies Studios. Their trendy menu has got you covered from brunch to dinner – here, one can seamlessly transition from coffee to cocktails. Every inch of the cafe was designed for the ‘gram, so don’t be shy about taking lots of pics! Our insider tip: Get one Sunnies Pork Bowl for P280 and get the same for free. This filling rice meal is composed of crispy glazed pork belly, soy egg, scallion brown rice, and homemade pickles!

6. Jin Joo Korean Grill – SM Aura
Jin Joo Korean Grill is a hip restaurant offering a mix of the classics and a whole new set of fresh innovative Korean dishes. It’s for food-lovers looking for a unique Korean experience in Manila. It’s not for diners looking for unlimited BBQ deals. We recommend Jin Joo’s 8 Flavours Samgyeopsal, Dak Galbi, Cheese Dung Galbi and Galbi Jim. Our insider tip: You can wrap your ribs with cheese on your own or ask a server to assist you. Read our full feature here.
5. Hello Kitty Cafe – Uptown Mall
Last month’s #2
Hello Kitty Cafe serves character-inspired dishes, pastries, and desserts. It is a full on Sanrio-themed cafe with Kawaii-inspired interiors. Hello Kitty Cafe is brought in by the official distributor of Sanrio in the Philippines. It’s for all Sanrio fans who want to be starstruck by their food. It’s not for people who have difficulty eating cute food, or for anyone looking for a certain cuisine. We recommend their Creamy Pink Carbonara and New York Style Cheese Cake. Insider tip: You can get ₱500 off your total bill when you reserve a table or walk in with Booky!
4. Todd English Food Hall – SM Aura
Last month’s #9
Named after the celebrity chef, Todd English offers food from all over the world in an upscale food hall setting. It has 9 different food stations including: salad & charcuterie, sushi, raw, Asian, pizza, pasta, grill & ocean, and the wine & tapas bar. It’s for people who like big menus or want to eat in a big group. It’s not for dieters who are vulnerable to temptation. We recommend their Fig & Prosciutto flatbread, truffle pasta, T.E. Porkchop and Torched Nigiri Stairs. Our insider tip: They’re open until 11pm, perfect if you’re getting a late dinner after a movie date.
3. Sunrise Buckets – Forbes Town Center
Last month’s #6
Sunrise Buckets has been delighting diners with its mouthwatering menu and extensive selection ofBuffalo-style wings since 2010. All their sauces are unique and made with only the best ingredients. You can enjoy your wings sauced or dry-rubbed, naked or breaded, bone-in or boneless. They also offer burgers, frankfurters, french fries, and more. They have 25 different sauces but we recommend the Sunrise Original or Garlic Glazed dry-rubbed wings.
2. NIU by Vikings – SM Aura
Last month’s #3
NIU is Vikings Buffet 2.0–the interiors are more modern and luxurious, definitely an upgrade from its pioneer sister brand. The restaurant can accommodate around 350 people per timeslot (lunch and dinner) and boasts NINE different stations of various cuisines. They’ve even got function rooms for private events. It’s for families, friends, and even couples celebrating special occasions. It’s not for people with small appetites. We recommend you first check out all the food available so you can plan and pace your intake smartly. Our insider tip: Request for their ‘by order only’ menu.
1. Kko Kko – Market! Market!
Last month’s #1
Kko Kko is a modern Korean chicken house that uses traditional and contemporary recipes that came from Grace Lee and her mom. Their menu is divided into three main categories – Korean Fried Chicken, Korean Street Food, and Dosirak (Korean lunch box) – each narrating a story about the dining setting and customs of Korea. It’s for foodies looking for new and unique Korean dishes. It’s not for people looking for grilled Korean BBQ. We recommend the Chicken Cheese Fondue, Snow Chicken Cheese, and Galbi Jim Dosirak. Our insider tip is the place is quite small and may get full quickly on peak hours, so make sure to book a table ahead of time. Fun Fact: Kko Kko was named after the sound that a chicken makes.
