Feel a craving coming on but tired of the usual mall or foodpark fare? Swing by these unassuming restos in the Metro and be rewarded for your trouble!
With their original branch situated along St. Martin Street near the PhilSports Arena (formerly Ultra), Aysee has been around for years now, and their sisig is legen—wait for it—DARY! It’s double-fried so it’s extra crispy, thus extra special. Their take on the classic Ilocano papaitan is another must-try and has kept loyal patrons coming back for more.
Eat First Shabu Shabu
This hot pot heaven is just a stone’s throw away from Century City Mall and right across Gramercy Residences in the heart of Poblacion in Makati. Though they serve other food too, did you really eat at Eat First if you didn’t give their famous shabu shabu a try? Don’t miss their infamous flaming hot and fragrant Sichuan broth.

You’ve probably passed by this Fil-Indian- Persian-Mediterranean fusion stall a hundred times whenever you’re on the prowl for great finds at Greenhills. Though it might not seem like much at first glance, it’s honest to goodness worth visiting even if you’re not out on a shopping spree. Their koobideh (ground beef kebab) is succulent and flavourful whilst their lamb biryani falls off the bone and boasts the perfect combination of spices.
Eat Fresh Hongkong Famous Street Food
Thank you for the post! We hope yo see you again in one of our branches! @shanikasilverio ・・・ Gotta be the Best Laksa I have tasted so far here in the Philippines! I love everything they serve in this restaurant because it tastes so authentic! You know where? Just at San Juan and Banawe. How I wish it was near my place though so I could grab instant HK food with the HK feels. #shaniKAIN 🇭🇰
Eat Fresh is a certified gem of San Juan. It’s an institution in its own right, being frequented even by the likes of Chefs Gino Gonzales and China Cojuangco.
If you’re feeling like grabbing some Vietnamese sandwiches, Bon Banhmi is the place to go. Be sure to visit their original branch on Mayapis Street as this is where they bake their bread fresh and in house. Don’t forget to try their other delectable offerings such as their noodle soups (not just the pho) and Vietnamese latte.
New Po-Heng Lumpia House
Binondo is probably the ultimate hole-in- the-wall foodhouse mecca, but New Po-Heng Lumpia House made a name for themselves with their fresh spring rolls which are simply a cut above the rest. Bonus: The ambience is incredibly Instagrammable. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a classic Bruce Lee film once you step inside the building.
