samreshwas absolutely blown away by Carlos Celdran's tour. Definitely was the highlight of my trip (and yes, i was in Boracray for a few days). I am a novice history buff and was wanted to know the history of Manila/Phillipines. Tried reading about it in Lonely Planet, but not the same. Carlos's tour was very informative, entertaining and emotional. I would DEFINITELY recommend taking his tour. The guy is hilarous and clearly takes his history and culture seriously.The only issue is getting a taxi back home. A bit hard to find and as his tour ends at dusk, the area get a bit shady, so try to arrange for someone to pick you up - just in case.
Raisungif you are looking for a fun place with nothing to loose then this is the Place! Both kids and adults will surely enjoy the place. There are kids playground and beautiful dancing fountain at night.
samreshI went to visit Fort Santiago because I was in the old town and it was ranked so highly on TripAdvisor. It was 75 pesos to enter and all I saw was construction work being done. You can only walk down one main path which is also littered with horse carts asking to give you a 'tour'. When you finally reach the top part of the fort... It's drenched in this awful smell from the nearby polluted river. Definitely a pass until they can clean it up.

I think I will never outgrow my love for Korean food. Although I am not a die-hard K-drama or K-Pop fan, I have a distinct love for the freshness and quality of Korean BBQ and Banchan. I like how the meat selections are seasoned and conveniently prepared for grilling, and how the vegetable sides complement and balance these. Unlike other cuisines, it doesn’t tire my palate easily. Hence, this leads me to trying out different Samgyupsal restaurants and figuring out my best choices.
If you're looking for something familiar and European in the town of Coron, this is your place to be.
Personally love the place's warm rustic wide windows ambiance with different paintings hung around the restaurant's walls and even the painter's corner in one spot.
Their Quattro Formaggio pizza is probably the star for me which is a thin crust pizza with a bursting taste of different types of cheese.
Ate here after a recommendation from a tour guide, and it did not let us down. Fantastic freshly cooked food at a fantastic price. Felt like an authentic locals restaurant in the Binondo area with plenty of locals eating there. Nice cold San Miguel beer available to wash down the delicious food. So glad we went here.
Tucked in the hustle of Binondo, this Chinese tea house restaurant serves authentic Chinese cuisine. The menu has a very good varieties of food to choose from and the price is very reasonable. I true awesome Binondo style Chinese restaurant experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Found this place after watching a beautiful sunset by the water, the pizzas were large and delicious, probably the best I've had in the phillipines, as i didn't leave feeling super bloated! The service was friendly perhaps a little too polite if anything. Only beg is that we visited around 8pm on a Wednesday and were the only people in the restaurant, perhaps due to a large group having a private party in the hotel.
The restaurant is located on the 3rd floor in the Bayleaf hotel. The prices are high compared to other places in the region, but you pay for good quality food, good service an..
A nice arab themed interior greeted us on arrival we were seated and brought water while we chose we started with piuta and dips, 4 different dips were fantastic with pita and we could have ate so much more pita but resisted the urge to order and spoil our appetite a kebab combination with beef, lamb, mahi mahi and chicken coupled with grilled tomatoes was served with a side of biriyani rice and we shared a lamb biriyani - the best i have had in philippines - the place is very authentic and local living arabs were comong in for dinner during our visit good service, clean and tidy set up - all in all good and would recommend.
Thad mistakenly once remarked that there were no decent Thai restaurants in Greenbelt. Then we happened to walk by this one which is located off our usual path. We decided to try it one day soon. We invited a few good friends for a leisurely weekend lunch. We ordered a nice variety of dishes: regular pad thai, salad with squid and pomelo, bok choy with mushrooms, kangkong with pan fried pork belly and chicken wrapped in pandan leaves. We were pleasantly surprised at how good each dish was. So I take it back, Simply Thai is a very good Thai restaurant tucked in a corner of Greenbelt 5! I recommend this restaurant!
Cafe Adriatico is a Manila icon that provides bistro-style dining. One of the first dinner places in Malate area that served as a night spot for local clientele. I remember it to be a date destination or a hangout place in my youth.
They are in existence for 4 decades, but still delivers quality dishes until now.
The following are good starters: gambas al ajillo and pita bread with hummus (comes with black and green olives). Sizes are for 2-3 pax.
They have a large variety of main dishes, but my favorite is Lola Ising's adobo rice, which is a delight. Soft meat and tasty sauce over brown rice. Serving size is for 2 pax.
The following are also favorites in Adriatico: seafood linguini, Norwegian salmon, baby squid pasta. All seafood-based but have varied tastes for an enjoyable dinner.
The external facade and the street that conveys you to My Kitchen - old Manila street with the ubiquitous food stalls, tricycles and even beggars, may fool a first-timer. But as you enter the glass door and small lobby of the Oasis, the din is exchanged for chatter of locals and squeals of children playing in the pool.
The restaurant is rustic in ambiance, but mostly busy and full.
Food is a delectable choice of Italian and Spanish cuisine, with Filipino flair. But truly, the freshness of what the chefs put in every plate is gastronomically palpable to the palate. Olive oil and freshly baked bread, an array of pizza, the sausages and prosciutto and on and on and on.
And so my team returns for many of our 'pamper me' moments!
The place is huge and food selections are great!
Didnt expect that it would be like this.
The beef churasco, the US beef steak, lechon, and the
lobsters were my personal favorites. I loved how they
prepared the steak. It was cooked according to my
preference. The churasco was grilled in front of you.
The dessert counter was overflowing with local and
international cuisines. It was a paradise for dessert lovers.
Water, coffee, and tea are also included in the buffet.
Alcoholic and carbonated drinks not included.
Make a reservation prior visiting the place. Just to be sure that you will be getting a seat. It was jam-packed during our lunch visit!
Will definitely visit this restaurant again!
