  • 10 Popular Food Spots in Metro Manila
  • It’s hardly a state secret that Filipinos love to eat. One perfect proof is the left and right foodie spots in Metro Manila alone. Whether you’re up for Asian, American, or European cuisine, the city will provide even more than you asked for.

    The best part? Different spots have different ambiance and community—it’s kind of like traveling to different states because one area may be ideal for solo travelers, while the others may be for a party out or a romantic dinner.

    Check out our ultimate list of the most popular food spots in the Metro!

    Molito, Alabang, Muntinlupa City

    Molito is a rising foodie haven in the South. Although it has been there for quite some time, it’s just now that they expanded the location, giving a home to various restaurants. Almost every cuisine is available here, so you won’t really run out of choices! The place itself is also great because it has an open area (in case you want to walk your furry babies around) and ample parking space.
