We’ve compiled a list of what we feel like are some of the best restaurants in Mandaluyong that we highly recommend checking out.
Vikings – SM Megamall
If you’re looking for a dining experience that has that “Go BIG or Go Home” attitude, then few can hold a candle to Vikings. One of the best buffet restaurants in Mandaluyong, Vikings proudly serves up an international menu featuring a dizzying amount of dishes and delicacies. Perfect for big celebrations with friends or family, the only suggestion we can make if you’re eating at Vikings is to go in hungry.
Din Tai Fung – SM Megamall
With branches thriving all over the world, Din Tai Fung is a Michelin-starred Taiwanese restaurant that has definitely been a welcome addition to Mandaluyong’s roster of incredible food spots. Enjoy some of the best Xiao Long Bao in the world as well as other amazing Taiwanese delicacies at affordable prices, conveniently located at SM Megamall.
Kanto Freestyle Breakfast – Plainview
If you’re on the prowl for great breakfast food in Mandaluyong, then look no further than Kanto Freestyle Breakfast. Serving an all-day, affordable breakfast menu Kanto Freestyle Breakfast is perfect for enjoying breakfast staples with a twist. Open 24/7, there’s no excuse not to try it- whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or dessert!
R & J Bulalohan – Plainview
Few things can beat a good, old-fashioned bowl of bulalo, and R & J Bulalohan has some of the best bowls around. With a casual atmosphere and friendly staff, we definitely recommend this affordable restaurant for a more simple and laid-back dining experience.
Bonifacio Ave., Plainview, Mandaluyong
Ooma – SM Megamall
Ooma needs little introduction among serious foodies. This homegrown concept from the wonderful minds of The Moment Group has taken the local food scene by storm with their inventive take on casual Japanese dining. Do not leave Ooma without trying their Hanger Steak, which has grown into a certified hit.
Nono’s – The Podium
Nono’s might be a relatively new restaurant compared to some of the older players on this list but they’ve quickly established themselves as a pioneer when it comes to modern day Filipino comfort food. From their Homestyle Fried Chicken to their Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion cake, most of their dishes end up being instant favorites.
Green Pastures – Shangri-la Plaza Mall
In the search for more responsible, sustainable restaurant options? Green Pastures has all of the answers for your natural, organic, farm-to-table needs. Featuring a menu that constantly adjusts based on the local ingredients that are available, Green Pastures makes sure that whatever touches your plate is healthy, natural, and truly satisfying.
Zubuchon – SM Megamall
One of Cebu’s most famous culinary exports, Zubuchon has been a favorite of the Mandaluyong food scene since its doors opened in SM Megamall. Bestsellers include the Zubuchon sisig and Sinuglaw, but the star of the show is, of course, the Zubuchon lechon. The late, great Anthony Bourdain dubbed the lechon as “the best pig ever”, and we think we should just leave it at that.
Galileo Enoteca – Highway Hills
Mandaluyong has more than a few secrets up its sleeves. Initially a simple wine import business, Galileo Enoteca has grown into a restaurant beloved by Mandaluyong locals. Aside from incredible wine, Galileo also serves authentic Italian dishes and, of course, cheese and meat platters. Fun fact: This scenic hole-in-the-wall is often used as locations in local films or TV shows!
Bake Cheese Tart – The Podium
Craving for something creamy, smooth, and maybe a little bit addictive? If a cheesy little snack is what’s on your mind, then it doesn’t get much better than Bake Cheese Tart! Hailing from Hokkaido, Japan, this cheese tart chain has made a name for itself because of their almost impossibly fluffy and smooth cheese mousse and double-baked crust. These little treats are definitely a must-try and is soon to be your next favorite Mandaluyong snack.
Planet Grapes – Shangri-la Plaza Mall
Perfect for a quick wine fix, Planet Grapes welcomes all! From expert wine aficionados to wine newbies taking their first sips, Planet Grapes offers an affordable and accessible way to enjoy wine without any pretense or drama. Also on the menu are dishes that are traditionally paired with wine (such as the classic Cheese Platter) or dishes that are a bit more adventurous (like the Sapin-sapin with Salted Egg Sauce).
