Known for its culinary innovations, TMG is in constant search of food ideas that are proudly new and well-executed.
Located on the ground floor of Moplex—TMG’s headquarters and central kitchens, Mess Hall is one of their restaurants that has been rapidly expanding food movement along Pasong Tamo Extension in Makati City.
Mess Hall acts as a modern cafeteria complete with self-service counters and long communal tables. With a very spacious area and minimal wood and bark design interiors, this restaurant will surely attract customers for its interesting setup.
Mess Hall serves as TMG’s private playground housing all its restaurant brands and its must-try dishes. This includes Manam’s House-style Sisig, 8Cut’s Burger Bomb, Ooma’s Cheese Katsu Curry, Shawa Wama’s Primo Beef, and more.
An all-time favorite is their House-style Sisig. This sizzling Filipino dish is one you should order if you love Manam’s roster of dishes. It is served with crunchy chicharon (fried pork belly) bits and egg on top.
This dish is best paired with Manam’s Sinigang na Beef Short Rib with Watermelon.
