By  - 6 years ago

If you think that you won’t get a taste of Boracay again after its closure, we’ve got some good news for you. Our beloved Boracay restaurants are coming to us via pop-ups around Manila so we don’t have to miss the food even though we do still miss the beach. Round up your foodie buddies because here are the pop-ups you’re sure to end up at.


The Sunny Side Cafe

Located at Canvas, Westgate Center, Alabang

Open from May 18 to June 30

The famous cafe’s delectable all-day breakfast menu earned a top 5 spot on TripAdvisor and is one of the most sought-after restaurants on the island. If you’re craving for their specialties like their sinfully delicious and fluffy ube pancakes, you don’t need to book a ticket anymore to satisfy it.


Coco Mama

Located at Salcedo Saturday Market, Salcedo Village, Makati

Also located at Flotsam & Jetsam, Surftown, La Union

Open on May 12, 19, 26, and June 2

If we can give their famous vegan-friendly coconut ice cream a round of applause we would. The popular dessert stall at D’Mall was an oasis in the sweltering heat of the beach and it will continue to cool down the weather in the city with their healthy, lip-smackingly good ice cream.



Located at Hole In The Wall, Century City Mall, Makati

Open from June 16 to August 15

This Station 3 restaurant takes pride in their piri-piri sauce that they make themselves. That’s why their famous piri-piri wings are so good – it’s their secret weapon. They have an assortment of dishes that you should try too such as their sandwiches, chicken, and seafood meals.


Fat Rice

To open at Hole in the Wall, Century City Mall, Makati

Nobody else in Station X can put together Southeast Asian flavors as well as Fat Rice. This stall was a crowd favorite at the trendiest food court in Boracay, Streetmarket. Your Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese favorite cuisines are all cobbled together in one place and we’re thankful that it’s opening in the city.
