RB CTY / Rib City is a fun and interactive American diner specializing in tender, charcoal-grilled, fall-off-the-bone ribs. Other items on the menu include pasta, salads, soup and other mains. In line with their restaurant concept, guests are encouraged to play and build legos while waiting for orders. It’s for lunch breaks with workmates in the area, barkada nights out or weekend play dates with the kids. It’s not for people who are looking for a quiet place to work in. We recommend the Big City with CTY rice or the Twin Tower. Our insider tip is non-rib eaters can still enjoy their burger and Philly cheesesteak sandwich.

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.

653 Favorites
Last month’s #4

Photo from @aileenkingang

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 without hurting the pockets. 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. Don’t scrimp on the rice, it’s unlimited. Our insider tip is that at Ooma, you get to ‘brush’ (not dip) soy sauce on your sushi.

6. Kko Kko – Sapphire Bloc Ortigas

688 Favorites
Last month’s #7

Photo from @annexchelle

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.

Photo from @thefrazzledcook

The Frazzled Cook is a quirky restaurant put together with the mission of serving good comfort food in a cozy, homey ambiance. ‘Frazzled’, which means completely exhausted, says nothing of the food, but the passion and hard work put in to every dish they serve. It’s for casual but intimate date nights or cozy meals with the family. It’s not for people who don’t enjoy searching for ‘hidden’ restaurants. We recommend the Sizzling Squid, Wagyu Salpicao, Truffle Pasta, and Pancake ala Mode. Here’s an insider tip: The place is easily curtained off into sections, and they also have rooms for smaller private events. Read our full feature here.

Last month’s #9

Photo from @jaz_foodie28

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 chili olive oil for a spicy kick. Read our full feature here.

Little Tokyo is a hub of authentic Japanese specialties, whose focus on consistent quality of food has won the hearts of many loyal patrons. Izakaya Kikufuji serves fresh sashimi and affordable and tummy-filling bento sets.

Your Local is a neighbourhood bistro serving modern Southeast Asian dishes. Opened by Chef Denny Antonino and Nicco Santos, the restaurant has a hipster meets industrial vibe and serves all day brunch together with their standard menu. It’s for yuppies at lunch time and everyone at dinner. It’s not for people looking for quick Asian takeouts. We recommend the Steak Fried Rice, Chorizo Bun, Lamb Rendang and Torched Salmon Donburi. Foodies are currently loving their Cereal Ice Cream, too. Our insider tip is to hop over to Yardstick after dinner for coffee through their revolving wall partition or go try Nicco Santos’ newest restaurant in BGC, Hey Handsome.
