Max’s Restaurant has been around since our grandparents’ time. In one way or another, we all grew up with Max’s and that’s why their simple and reliable Filipino offers keep us coming back for more. It’s for those looking for restaurants perfect for big groups. It’s not for those who want a different cuisine or a different take on Filipino cuisine. We recommend their Sizzling Tofu and of course, their classic chicken.

Insider tip: With Booky, you can get Buy 1 Get 1 deals on three of their dishes: Chicken Sisig Rice Bowl with Sago't Gulaman, Sizzling Tofu, and Sweet & Sour Fish Fillet Rice Bowl!

Rustic mornings by Isabelo is one of Marikina’s well-known hidden gems. They have great breakfast food along with a beautiful and rustic chic garden set-up, it’s almost as if you’re out of the city when you step in their place. It’s for people looking for a great and quiet spot to catch up with friends and family. It’s not for those looking to go shopping right after as known malls aren’t walking distance from here. We recommend their Ilocos Bagnet.

Gokinjo means ‘neighborhood’ in Japanese and it only makes sense for one of Marikina’s favorite neighborhood Japanese restaurants. Gokinjo offers modern Japanese fusion cuisine like bacon & cheese pasta and the kani & wasabi pesto pasta. It’s for Japanese food lovers looking for something new. It’s not for those looking for a simple meal. We recommend their Sizzling Beef Saikoro.

Dairy Queen truly is the queen when it comes to satisfying ice cream and other frozen dessert treats. From blizzards to ice cream cakes to dilly bars, Dairy Queen is sure to put a smile on your face! It’s for those who love every variation of ice cream! It’s not for those expecting the usual scoop. We recommend their Dilly Bar and Oreo Blizzard.

Offering different kinds of pasta and serving authentic Italian cuisine, The Old Spaghetti House has become a true household name for Filipinos. It’s for those who are bringing the whole family for an Italian feast. It’s not for those who want a fancier meal on a date. We recommend their Aglio Olio, Pesto with Grilled Chicken, or their Classic Lasagna.

Known as America’s favorite doughnut and coffee shot, Krispy Kreme serves a variety of flavored doughnuts but surprisingly is the only doughnut shop whose original flavor is their most popular. It’s for those who want a quick dine-in or on-the-go sweet treat in the morning. It’s not for those who want a full meal or a heavy breakfast.

Taiwanese drink shop franchise that first stole our hearts back in 2011, Gong Cha’s has over 170 outlets worldwide – including accessible outlets for Filipinos to get their milk tea fix. It’s for those who want options for their caffeine cravings. It’s not for big groups because their outlets are usually quaint.

The first wine bar and delicatessen in Marikina City, Fino Deli brings rustic Italian and Spanish flare in an inviting and relaxed atmosphere. It’s for those who want to treat themselves with wine and a cheese and meat platter. It’s not for those who are craving for Asian flavored food. We recommend their Fino Platter and Sangria.

Vikings is the absolute best buffet experience in the country, featuring a cornucopia of flavors that can’t be found anywhere else. They feature several food stations including the appetizer and salad station, the Asian, Western and Mediterranean stations and the dessert station. It’s for a hungry camper down for the long haul in an ambient buffet setting. It’s not for the light of heart or stomach. Our insider tip: watch out for new and seasonal dessert treats.
