10. Sunrise Buckets – Forbes Town Center
Sunrise has been delighting diners with its mouthwatering menu and extensive selection of Buffalo-style wings since 2010. You can get a variety of wings prepared in different ways as well as burgers, frankfurters, french fries, and more. It’s for those who love finger food.

9. Bai Nian Tang Bao – Fort Bonifacio
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!
