10. Ganso-Shabuway – Rockwell
Last month’s #4
Ganso-Shabuway is an international franchise from California that offers Japanese style hot pot. They serve all-natural grass fed beef, fresh produce and other hot pot toppings. It’s for people who are looking for a healthier dining option. It’s not for sushi lovers. We recommend the Set B (for 2) with Spicy Miso broth, Wagyu beef set, and their Seafood Deluxe Set. We’ve been reading great reviews about their dipping sauces, so make sure to try those as well. Our insider tip is every order of single or sharing shabu-shabu set comes with unlimited rice, soup refills and dipping sauces.
9. Pizza Warehouse – Glorietta
Last month’s #7
Pizza Warehouse is a casual restaurant in Glorietta serving up everything pizza. They offer other comfort food as well, including pasta, salads, roast chicken, and even corn dogs! It’s for anyone either just passing by for a bite or a fulmeal, in need of affordable pizza, baked rolls, lasagna, and calzone. It’s not for those wanting oven brick pizza. We recommend their solo slices of pizza (the more slices to try, the better) and their Cheeseburger Baked Roll. Insider tip: You can get 2 All Cheese Pizza Slices for the price of 1!

Llaollao (pronounced as ‘yao yao’) is a Spanish frozen yogurt brand, which started in 2009 and now has over a hundred branches in Spain alone. Llaollao is best known for their Sanum cups topped with fresh seasonal fruits, sauces, and crunchy toppings. It’s for people looking for delicious desserts minus the guilt because it is healthy and even gluten-free. It’s not for people who prefer regular, sweet ice cream. We recommend the 3-layered Sanum yogurt cup that comes with 3 fresh fruits, 2 crunches and 1 sauce. Insider tip: Enjoy Buy 1 Get 1 Split Smoothie or Golden Plus Smoothie with Booky!
6. Vikings – SM Jazz
Last month’s #10
Vikings Luxury Buffet opened its first branch in the Mall of Asia complex in 2011. Five years and 9 branches later, it is now considered the Philippines’ largest luxury buffet chain. This homegrown brand has expanded all around Metro Manila, the Visayas and Mindanao (full feature here). It’s for families and groups who are looking to celebrate special occasions affordably. It’s not for people who prefer the quiet and relaxed ambiance of a hotel buffet. Our insider tips are (1) Visit on your birthday month for a free meal. Don’t forget to bring a valid ID. (2) Avail P200 off any day at SM Jazz, SM BF Parañaque, and SM Marikina branches when you book a table thru Booky.

You can enjoy your wings sauced or dry-rubbed, naked or breaded, bone-in or boneless. They also offer burgers, frankfurters, french fries, and more. They have 25 different sauces but we recommend the Sunrise Original or Garlic Glazed dry-rubbed wings.
4. Gaja Korean Kitchen – Poblacion
Last month’s #3
Gaja Korean Kitchen offers a contemporary take on traditional South Korean recipes. It’s for any Korean-loving foodie wanting a modern taste of real recipes from the land itself. It’s not for anyone in search for an unli-KBBQ hub. We recommend their Samgyeopsal Kimbap, Itaewon Army Stew, and Ribimbap. Insider tip: Check out Odd Seoul, a modern Korean bar hiding just in Gaja Korean Kitchen.
3. Mendokoro Ramenba – Salcedo Village
Last month’s #1
Mendokoro Ramenba is a 20-seater ramen joint from the people behind popular Ramen Yushoken from Alabang; it is also called being tagged as Yushoken 2.0. It’s for people who don’t mind queuing a bit for a spot at the table. It’s not for people who want rice bowls and other Japanese favorites. We recommend the Tantanmen, Shio Ramen, and Super Chasu Bowl. Our insider tip is if you’re in a big group, be ready to be seated separately if you want to get seats faster.
2. Kko Kko – Paseo Center
Last month’s #2
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.

The Lost Bread is a container shop that specializes in over-the-top milkshakes, while The Lost Bread HQ offers a more well-rounded menu that includes all-day modern Pinoy brunch menu, specialty French toasts, unique desserts, blue soft serve ice cream and a new collection of overshakes.
