BFF get-togethers are a must for the holiday season, and if you’re still thinking of where you can chow and chika, here’s a list of five good restos that can hopefully give you ideas.
1. Mighty Quinn’s BBQ
The famous New York barbeque joint is now in the Philippines! Mighty Quinn’s BBQ recently opened its doors at the Megamall Fashion Hall. Drop by with your friends and experience the one-of-a-kind taste of slow-smoked barbeque cooked over wood and marinated with Mighty Quinn’s special secret sauce.
When you can't decide just go all in. Brontosaurus ribs, spares and brisket. #slowsmoked #brisket #brontosaurusribs #spareribs #bbq #bbqribs #eeeeeats #eaterny #eater #nycbbq #nycdining #eastcoastfoodies #eatingnewyork #nyceeeeeats #eatupnewyork #eatsandthecity #huffposttaste #newforkcity #skinnypig #grubshotsnyc #mightyquinns #mightyquinnsbbq
Location: 5th Floor, SM Megamall Fashion Hall
Can we get an “Opa?” If you’re into flaming cheeses and gyros, then this is the place for you. They also have meals for those going solo, but it's definitely more sulit to visit Cyma as a group! Don’t forget to order their Pastisado if you’re really planning to go for an all-out meat indulgence.
Location/s: Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong; Greenbelt 2, Makati; Trinoma, Quezon City, Eastwood Mall, Quezon City; Robinsons Magnolia, Quezon City; Robinsons Place, Ermita, Manila
3. Milky Way Café
Milky Way Café has been around for a long time (so much so that my parents always have nostalgic flashbacks every time we dine there). Their public dining area is huge enough to accommodate several groups of six to eight people, but they also have function rooms if you want to keep things quiet. Enjoy a wide menu featuring Filipino faves, which is highlighted by their uber yummy Baby Crispy Pata.
Good morning FB friends! Enjoy Milkyway Cafe's BBQ Pork Spareribs for lunch today! Please call 843-4124 and 843-7124 to reserve. Thanks! Hope to see you at #milkywayrestaurantPosted by Milkyway Cafe on Monday, November 7, 2016
Location: Paseo de Roxas, Makati
4. Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina
Serve up the nachos and the paella! Silantro is for those after-hours when you just want to chill with your BFFs over glasses of margarita. Just make sure to head on to your branch of choice early, because this restaurant chain has a lot of patrons.
Locations: Kapitolyo, Pasig; UP Town Center, Quezon City; Alabang, Muntinlupa
5. Sky Deck Lounge at The Bayleaf Hotel
Old Manila has a charm all of its own, and one of the best ways to appreciate it is by dining al fresco at the Sky Deck Lounge. Order any of their yummy woodfired pizzas to share with your friends, and enjoy your bar favorites while overlooking the city.
Location: The Bayleaf Hotel, Intramuros
