Pub Express is one of the casual Manila restaurants that serves all-day breakfasts and java rice meals that pack a flavorful punch. It’s for those who want quick and affordable meals. It’s not for those who want a vegetarian meal. We recommend their best seller, the Baby Back Ribs served with java rice and atchara.

Best known for their Umami Fried Chicken paired with waffles, Bad Bird has quickly expanded with over 7 branches around the metro. It’s for people who absolutely love chicken and waffles paired together. It’s not for those who are expecting the classic fried chicken. We recommend their Umami Fried Chicken Plates where you can choose your sides and spice level.

Ilustrado is a fine dining Filipino-Spanish restaurant that has been operating since 1989 inside the historic walled city, Intramuros. It’s for the foodies who love a good narrative behind their dish. It’s not for those who aren’t fans of Spanish cuisine. We recommend Paella Ilustrado, Bagnet, and their Sampaguita Ice Cream.

From signature pizzas, delicious pasta, crispy chicken, mouth-watering mojos, and many more, you’re guaranteed to have a memorable fun-and-filling family-style dining experience at Shakey’s! It’s for small to big groups who want to get together over American style food. It’s not for people looking for a quiet place to eat. We recommend their mojos… because it goes well with almost any dish at Shakey’s.
