Blugre Coffee is a homegrown specialty coffee shop from Davao known for its generous use of durian in its food and drinks. This is their first branch in Metro Manila and tenth overall. It’s for coffee enthusiasts looking to try a unique spin on their caffeine. It’s not for the unadventurous coffee drinkers. We recommend their bestselling Blugre Durian Cappuccino (iced or hot), Durian Dulce de Leche Cheesecake and their equally famous (non-durian) Chocolate Torte with Cream Sauce.  Fun fact: The name “durian” is derived from the Malay-Indonesian languages word for duri or “spike”.

My Kitchen by Chef Chris is one of the hidden gems in Malate serving European dishes by notable chef, Chris Locher. It’s for tourists living in the area looking for a casual diner but with a good ambiance. It’s not for people dining on a budget. We recommend the Pannizza Kristina, Slow Roasted Lamb Ribs, and Tinlou Risotto. Fun fact: Chris Locher is also the man behind popular C’ Italian Dining in Salcedo Village.

Previously called Big B, BeefX is a university burger joint most popular for their innovative 50:50 burgers, which are burgers with patties made of 50% beef and 50% of something else (i.e., bacon, longganisa and spam). It’s for anyone looking for bang-for-buck burgers. It’s not for people craving for traditional all-beef burgers. We recommend the Beef x Bacon burgers with multiple shots of their home-made Awesomesauce burgers or the TR3ASON triple patty burger, if you can’t decide which patty to try. Here’s an insider tip: Resident pseudochefs offer new products via the ‘Wild Card’ item on their menu. P.S. Also get their Pink Potion with Feelings soda to get a theatrical surprise from their staff. Read our full feature here.

Often tagged as one of the most beautiful fine dining restaurants in Manila, Champagne Room has been able to maintain its classic charm among its patrons. It’s for romantic dates on special occasions, from Valentine’s to anniversaries and more. It’s not for diners on a budget. We recommend the Symphonie De Sarmon and Entrecote De Boeuf Grille.

Sky Deck is a popular rooftop destination for anyone who wants to dine with a view. It’s for romantic evenings or intimate gatherings with friends against a beautiful sunset. It’s not for nights when you want cheap drinks and affordable grub. We recommend their Special Bagnet, Bulalo, and their cocktails, of course. Our insider tip: They also have a buffet selection!

Tim Hortons is Canada’s world-renowned coffee house. After months of its rumored arrival to the Philippines, we’ve confirmed that it’s soon to open in Ermita and has already opened in BGC! It’s for all coffee lovers who have a taste for premium caffeine blends and all the pastries that go with it. It’s not for third-wave coffee enthusiasts. We recommend the Original Blend Coffee, Iced Capps, and their donuts. Our insider tip: We have unconfirmed news that it’s opening this month of February. Read more here.

Mak Chang is a Korean restaurant specializing in grilled meat..  It’s for friends and families who want an authentic Korean dining experience. It’s not for small appetites, as each customer is required to order at least 2 meat dishes from their menu. We recommend their specialties like the Galbisal and Beef Galbi and Samkyupsal, which come with unlimited sides. Our insider tip: Mak Chang is open until 4am.
