Discovering the Best Restaurants in Manila

Who doesn’t love eating out? Whether it’s to mark the end of the workweek, to celebrate a promotion, or simply to try something new, eating out is a joy. And luckily, in Manila, there’s no shortage of fantastic restaurants that offer impeccable food matched with faultless service.

Here, your dreams of eating at an award-winning restaurant can come true without having to make advanced reservations or stand in a queue for hours. Hong Kong’s Tim Ho Wan, popularly known as one of the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurants, has opened several outlets in Manila to offer the same quality of food and service. (One bite of the Baked Bun with BBQ Pork will make you sing praises.) Don’t stop there and have your fill of some of the yummiest and freshest dim sum: like the Pan-Fried Radish Cake, Vermicelli Roll with Pig’s Liver, and Beancurd Skin Roll with Shrimp.

From Hong Kong to Singapore now: another excellent place to enjoy world-class grub sans the exorbitant fees is Hawker Chan. This popular Singaporean hawker stall has reached Philippine shores to offer their Soya Sauce Chicken Rice, Char Siew Noodle, and Roasted Pork Hor Fun–all at unbelievably affordable prices. Don’t miss out on the combination platters to have a taste of all their bestsellers.

Up next: if you want to depart from Asian flavors and get your fill of burgers, fries, pizza, and pasta, Pound should be right up your alley. But these are flavors unlike what you’ve been used to at fast-food chains offering the same menu items. Get ready to meet the Pound Foie Gras Burger, Truffle Fries, Ghamberi Flatbread Pizza, and Vongole Pasta. This is comfort food made luxe but still at pocket-friendly prices. 

To help you cover part of eating out like this, you can claim discount vouchers through Globe Rewards. All you have to do is download the New GlobeOne app and sign up for an account under your Globe Postpaid mobile number. From the homepage, you can navigate to the Rewards tab to see your current points, their expiration date, and a list of all the dining rewards you can score. It’s that easy to claim a ₱100 or ₱300 voucher at Tim Ho Wan, Hawker Chan, or Pound.

Rewarding Loyal Customers

Not feeling up to trying a new restaurant and would rather stick to something tried and tested? No worries! There are just as many dependable restaurants in Manila that have been consistent over the years.

Take homegrown fried chicken chain Max’s, for example. Their fried chicken? Iconic. Don't forget to pair it with extra orders of Sizzling Tofu, All Beef Kare-Kare, and Chicken Pancit—all things enjoyable to Filipinos of all ages.

Yellow Cab is up there as well. How can one not find comfort in Charlie Chan Pasta loaded with chicken strips, roasted peanuts, and shiitake mushroom? And on the topic of comfort food: who can resist a large order of Potato Corner Fries coated in their signature cheese, barbecue, or sour cream powder? Pair that with a large Pearl Milk Tea from Chatime and you have the best midday reward that the whole family can enjoy.

Cheese, barbecue, or sour cream? Score free Potato Corner French fries to take home for the fam!

Loyal Globe Postpaid subscribers are gifted points that can be used to claim a Max’s voucher, free pasta from Yellow Cab, or fries from Potato Corner. (For Postpaid customers, earning Globe Rewards points is based on your total monthly bill, which means that the longer you stay with Globe, the more dining rewards are slated to come your way.)

Claiming Much-Deserved Treats

Who wouldn’t love free dessert to cap off a meal? A colorful cup of Llao Llao frozen yogurt or the world-famous Jollibee Peach Mango Pie perhaps? Or you can also choose to reward yourself with a glass of warm tea from The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or a creamy smoothie from Jamba Juice. You can enjoy all these by converting your existing Globe Rewards points.
