“If you are feeling a little bit fancy, and have already gone to Trellis and still have enough Philippine currency with you, you can try Via Mare restaurant inside the university campus to sample Filipino cuisine. This is the favorite restaurant of the faculty of the university (and also said to be the favorite of former First Lady Imelda Marcos) and for good reason. The food here is like the home-cooked dinner your Filipino mom cooks at home if she happens to be a really good chef who trained at Le Cordon Bleu. This is a good place to visit on your last day to cap your gastronomical experience of Manila. Instagram-worthy.”

“Ramen Nagi is one of my favourite ramen houses in the metro. This type of food isn’t just for rainy days. In fact, I enjoy a piping hot bowl even on the hottest days of the year and survive the heat out of sheer love and willpower. I love ramen that much. And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only hardcore ramen lover out there willing to brave the Metro Manila heat just for their favourite bowl. All I can say is, Ramen Nagi's food is delicious and satisfying and in generous servings, too! For their ramen, they give you a little form so you can specify the flavour, richness of taste, heaviness of special sauce, heaviness of garlic, cut of pork, vegetable ingredient, spiciness, and firmness of noodles. My personal favourite is the Butao King that is extra rich and extra heavy on garlic and special sauce with pork shoulder and green onions and with a level 5 spiciness. The type that I order may be too rich for some, so you might want to request normal or light richness. I also love the Red King which is a red-hot spicy miso-based variant for those who like a fiery kick to their taste buds. It has a mix of garlic, chili oil, and cayenne pepper, topped with a miso-infused ball of minced pork. Their sides are also very good. They have sesame cucumber, pork katsu roll, gyoza, and chicken karaage (the latter two being my favourites). Service is very good with the wait staff responding quickly to calls and requests. They will welcome you with an "Irasshaimase!" greeting, which is typical of many Japanese restaurants. One thing that may be off-putting to some is the price as it is a bit on the higher end. Otherwise, Ramen Nagi is a truly wonderful dining experience and will continue to be one of my favourites.”

“One of the oldest restaurants in the area. The original branch is inside the university. They have a good selection of Western and Asian dishes. But their cakes are what made them famous. My favorite is the Dayap Chiffon Cake.”

“Nice place to grab a few drinks after work with a great view of the city. Not your typical bar with dance music but more of a sit down- eat, drink and relax atmosphere. They serve grilled Filipino food. Accessible via Taxi or car.”
