Coco Bango Café
Located inside White Knight, a boutique hotel located in Intramuros, is Coco Bango Café—a personal favorite of the locals that has garnered regular patrons. The café serves no-nonsense comfort food ranging from Filipino to Italian, Japanese, Chinese, European, and Spanish cuisine. It may be too many of a choice for a restaurant but Coco Bango is able to deliver high quality dishes.
A favorite amongst its patrons is the classic Beef ala Bulalo, a guilty pleasure dish perfect for the cold and rainy days, the fat from the Bulalo is considered the best part so don’t leave it out.

Those looking for the crispier side of Coco Bango can get Damasos’ Wrapped Prawns, a well-fried prawn wrapped with bacon making the initial bite extra crispier and succulent. Don’t forget to squeeze out some lemon slices to add a kick in the taste buds.

A Filipino favorite in any household, the Inihaw na Pusit is considered a perfect pulutan (bar chow) for beer. It is also a dish enjoyed by Filipino families where the dish would be eaten by using their bare hands.
