Toyo Eatery in Makati Presents the Essence of Filipino Flavor in Unique Ways
Updated as of April 17, 2020
Restaurants are often defined by the kind of cuisine they serve. Some take it a step further and stick to a certain genre without necessarily focusing on a type of dish. Then there’s Chef Jordy Navarra’s Toyo Eatery.
Toyo Eatery is definitely not your typical Filipino restaurant as they want to explore different kinds of food genres, which is not something you’d typically see in a restaurant.
Their take on food and dining is more of a twist on what makes Filipino food, well, Filipino. In a nut shell, they take the essence of Filipino flavor, traditions, and techniques and combine them quality products to make a delicious dish.

The restaurant takes a step further into this concept with its interiors. Unlike most Filipino restaurants, Toyo Eatery boasts an open kitchen and an intimate setting that is not a typical feature of a Filipino restaurant.
The food, however, is where they really pride themselves. In fact, it is the reason why Toyo Eatery has a spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Their menu comes in two parts: the Eatery, or a la carte menu, and the Tasting Menu. The latter consists of dishes that change daily, and are usually selections of their best dishes.
