At the heart of the Ortigas business district is The Stockpile, a homey place where the food is good and the people are warm. The Stockpile’s menu was developed by Chef Tanya Chua, and is full of decadent choices that are often made from scratch. One good dish to share is the Sunshine Pizza, which is topped with longganisa made in the restaurant's kitchen, while another must-try is their Six-Hour Slow Roast Porchetta that is tasty enough to be eaten without its sauce.

2. Cable Car
Location: The Sapphire Bloc, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong

Also at The Sapphire Bloc is Cable Car, a classic favorite of many a squad. Their new Ortigas branch is reminiscent of their first in Makati – wooden walls and vintage movie posters give it an old bar feel. Almost everything on their menu is fit for sharing, so you won't have to worry about running out of nachos even if you're a huge group. Try out their signature drink Furo Locco, which is combination of 14 different liquors that's sure to end your visit on a high note.

3. Uke Box Caffé

Commune is the perfect cozy café for those times when you need to have a long chika session with good friends. Enjoy beautifully crafted cups of your favorite brew, and if you ask the owner Rosario Juan nicely enough, she may just allow you to pet the café’s resident cats Mocha and Mirage, who by the way also have their own Instagram account.
