10. Tomo – Addition Hills
Tomo Japanese Dining is an authentic Japanese restaurant serving classic dishes in an offbeat refurbished house with modern and minimalist Japanese interiors. It’s for people who are fans of Sugi Japanese Restaurant, the same Chef heads the kitchen here. It’s not for those looking for a DIY meal. We recommend the Seafood Teppanyaki and their Unagi Maki.
Last month’s #4
Cafe Sanso is a casual dining restaurant that serves Spanish dishes like Callos, Paella, and Jamon Platter. It’s located right beside Sanso Museum in San Juan. It’s for those who enjoy the traditional Spanish cuisine. It’s not for those looking for a buffet. We recommend their Paella Catalonia, Jamon Serrano Bruschetta, and Churrasco Pork Belly to name a few.
8. Wildflour Café + Bakery – Wilson
Last month’s #2
Wildflour Café + Bakery in Greenhills offers international fare and specialty pastries, famous for being the first purveyor of the wildly popular cronuts in Manila. It’s for people who enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch in a place that always reminds you of Sunday mornings. It’s not for office employees who want quick meals for their weekday lunch break. We recommend their
California Burger, Shakshouka, and Roasted Bone Marrow. Our insider tip is to get pastries at 50% off after 7pm.
7. Sodam – Little Baguio
Last month’s #9
Sodam reopens after a short renovation hiatus. It offers unlimited eat-all-you-can buffet including grilled meats and other Korean dishes. It’s for people craving for unlimited Korean food. It’s not for people who want to avoid grill smoke and smell sticking to their hair and clothes.
Reservations are accepted
17 Jose Abad Santos, Little Baguio, San Juan

6. Nikita Izakaya – Juan Gutierrez St.
Nikita Izakaya is a traditional Japanese restaurant serving dishes like Donburi, Sashimi, and more. It’s for people looking for a modern twist to Japanese dishes. It’s not for people looking for a quick meal on the go. We recommend their Gyu Hire, it’s beef tenderloin with pumpkin puree and truffle teriyaki sauce.
5. Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles – J. Abad Santos St.
Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles is a restaurant serving Chinese favourites. As stated in their name, you’ll see how the noodles in your dish came to be… created from scratch and formed by hand. It’s for people looking to satisfy their Chinese cravings with offers like dimsum, dumplings, fried noodles, fried rice, and many more. It’s not for those looking for a higher end place for a special occasion. We recommend their Braised Beef Dry Noodles and Beef with Broccoli in Oyster Sauce.
4. La Famiglia Little Italy – Promenade
La Famiglia Little Italy serves Italian favourites from pasta to pizza and a touch of seafood. You could find this little Italian restaurant on the mezzanine area of the ground floor in Promenade. It’s for big groups as they have big servings. It’s not for those on a strict diet as their meals can be pretty heavy. We recommend their Bianca Pasta and Fried Mozzarella.

3. Refinery – Promenade
Last month’s #7
First gaining traction in its Rockwell branch, Refinery is a third wave coffee shop in San Juan that serves all-day breakfast and brunch items, international comfort food and specialty coffee–but what sets it apart is that it also serves wine and cocktails. It’s for ladies who brunch in the area; it’s also a solid working spot. It’s not for those who want quick and cheap breakfast. We recommend the Honey and Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Bread Pudding, Shirred Truffled Eggs, Angry Pasta and Orange-Infused Cappuccino. Our insider tip: Unlike their Rockwell branch, the Greenhills location is open until 1am.
2. FETA Mediterranean – Annapolis
Last month’s #5
FETA serves Mediterranean cuisine by Chef Beyto Koc in Greenhills. It’s not uncommon to see Lebanese, Iranian, or other groups of Middle Eastern ethnicities dining here – a tell-tale sign of its authenticity! It’s for people who like mouthwatering dishes that make use of bold and exotic spices. It’s not for solo diners with small appetites – the servings are generous and good for sharing! We recommend their Kebap on a Stick, their Beef Pide, and their Lamb Shank. Our Insider Tip: Order the Platter of Mezedes to enjoy a sample of their best appetizers: eggplant salad, hummus, ezme, tzatiki, ghanoush, and keftedes.
1. Dohtonbori – Greenhills
Last month’s #2
All the way from Tokyo, Dohtonbori is Japan’s #1 okonomiyaki restaurant chain that offers the first cook-your-own okonomiyaki experience in Greenhills. This is its first branch in the Philippines. It’s for foodies who enjoy DIY meals but don’t need to worry as the servers can also cook for you. It’s not for people who prefer American-style pancakes. We recommend the Deluxe Okonomiyaki, Four-Cheese and Dohtonbori pizzas, and their premium yakiniku.
