Vampire Penguin is a Californian dessert cafe that specializes in shaved snow desserts. It’s a family-owned business by the San Luis brothers that started in 2013. Manila is its first international branch. It’s for both kids and kids at heart. It’s not for those who prefer traditional ice cream. We recommend you try their specials or have fun and build your own. Try also their egg puffs, smoothies, milk tea and macarons. Our insider tip is watch out for seasonal flavors.

The first of its kind, Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina is a rustic local restaurant serving the best of Mexican comfort food with a Filipino twist.

Located inside a hidden container hub, Diner on 16th is a homegrown, retro-style diner that serves American breakfast staples like waffles and pancakes.  it’s also one of the first to introduce the overloaded milkshake concept in the city. It’s best for brunches and after office drinks joint by night. It’s not for oldies who have a hard time climbing stairs. We recommend the Soy Ginger Glazed Chicken and Ube Waffles, Mac N Cheese and signature milkshakes. Our insider tip is it’s buy 2 get 1 promo on all their beers from 2-7PM. P.S.

The kitchen staff is proudly Filipino and was trained professionally by Japanese chefs. It’s for anyone craving for authentic Japanese food.

Last month’s #5

Photo from @magocarla

True to its name, Locavore serves only locally grown and produced Filipino dishes with a French touch from Chef Mikel Zaguirre (of Taqueria 101 and newly opened Carnivalé). The open kitchen and industrial interiors adds to the modern hipster vibe of the restaurant. It’s for people who enjoy a twist to the classics. It’s not for an intimate occasion. We recommend the Sizzling Sinigang (ask for extra gravy!), Lechon & Oyster Sisig, and its underrated Ginataang Kalabasa. For rice lovers, it’s good to know they also serve brown rice. Our insider tip is to watch out for their seasonal market specials and new menu items. P.S. Locavore BGC offers a special brunch menu starting at 9AM.

Tittos is a modern diner serving the best of Latin American and Filipino fusion dishes. Your dining experience is made complete with the lively and colorful murals made by local artists. It’s for yuppies looking for a chill spot to hang out after work. It’s not for people craving for more traditional Filipino comfort food.

Our insider tip is find the secret speakeasy bar behind a Coca-Cola door; you’ll need a passcode. P.S. Don’t worry about parking, they offer free valet services. Read full feature here.

Nikuya is a local concept that’s first to offer Korean grill with Japanese hotpot in one place. Nikuya, along with new restaurants like Kko Kko, Buta+Wagyu, etc.  is owned by TV personality and host, Grace Lee. It’s for foodies who love both Japanese and Korean cuisines. It’s not for people looking for sushi and other Japanese specialties. We recommend the Korean BBQ samgyupsal and karubi (boneless short rib), as well as their value-for-money shabu shabu set good for 2-3 persons. Insider tip: Nikuya, which means “butcher” in Japanese, houses a mini-butchery that offers a selection of high-caliber wagyu beef from Buta+Wagyu. Read full feature here.

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.
