10. Nikkei Nama Bar – Bonifacio High Street
Nikkei Nama is the next step in the fine dining experience that Japanese-Peruvian restaurant, Nikkei, has started. It’s for people that want to enjoy Nikkei’s premium quality food without the restrictions of fine dining. It’s not for people that aren’t really into sushi. We recommend their Spicy Tuna Roll and Smoked Salmon Roll.
9. Mamma Mia – Uptown Mall
Last Month’s #6
Mamma Mia Ristorante E Bar is an Italian one-stop shop brought to you by the creators of Toni and Sergio Gastro Italiano. Serving a mix of traditional and modern Italian dishes that go with morning coffee or late-night drinks, they’re bringing the Italian way to Manila where sitting at the table with your loved ones for hours is the norm. Their carbonara is to die for!
8. Namoo House – Uptown Parade
Namoo House is the local franchise of Maple Tree House, a popular Korean BBQ restaurant from Seoul, Korea known for their premium and quality cuts of beef and pork cooked over charcoal grill. All their premium meats are wet aged for 2 weeks to enhance the flavors. It’s for those that want to enjoy KBBQ without smelling too much after, because they have a double exhaust system. It’s not for those on a budget. We recommend their Marinated Boneless Short Ribs with Pineapple and Onion, Kurobota Pork Belly, and Aged USDA Prime Rib Eye.
7. Kenny Rogers Roasters – Market! Market!
Last Month’s #7
Kenny Rogers is a well-loved brand that is best known for their signature roasted chicken, muffins, and macaroni and cheese. It’s for those who want a casual American lunch or dinner. It’s not for those who want a twist on familiar dishes. We recommend their Honey Bourbon Ribs as well as their Rib and Chicken Platter. Our insider tip: Get Buy 1 Get 1 Chicken Quesadilla, Ham and Cheese Sandwich, Caesar Salad, or Kani & Mango Salad with Booky!
6. Pound by Todd English – Bonifacio High Street
Last Month’s #8
Pound by Todd English is an old school counter-style burger joint with a 1920s speakeasy vibe. They pride themselves in using the freshest ingredients and making everything in-house, allowing us to experience a serious, fancy upgrade in the Philippines’ burger game. It’s for burger crawlers who are fans of Todd English Food Hall. It’s not for vegans. We recommend the T.E. Crispy Chicken Burger, Amsterdam Burger and Pound Burger. Our insider tip: when you use the Booky app, you can claim their Buy 1 Get 1 Secret Slider!
5. Bai Nian Tang Bao – Uptown Parade
Last month’s #3
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!
4. Borough – Bonifacio High Street
Last Month’s #10
Now with a new home in Bonifacio High Street Central, the Borough we all know and loved from The Podium continues to serve authentic NYC comfort food by Chef Cuit Kaufman. With an expanded menu that has something for everyone—vegans looking for healthy meals, families dining with kids, cocktails for the after-hours crowd, and those who simply want to satisfy their comfort food cravings, Borough is great for every kind of get-together. Try the new 4-Cheese Lasagna!
3. Sunnies Cafe – Bonifacio High Street
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!
2. NIU by Vikings – SM Aura
Last month’s #2
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.
