  • Manam Comfort Filipino Food in BGC: Filipino Cuisine with Exciting Twists
  • Updated as of March 26, 2024. 

    Manam Comfort Food in Bonifacio Global City takes its name Filipino word malinamnam, which means delicious, complementing its brand’s word of unfolding hominess to anyone and everyone. 

    The restaurant is The Moment Group of Restaurants’ spin on tilting the fare limelight to our own Filipino flavors.

    Although the main notion of the restaurant is to underscore the flavorful traditional Filipino cuisine among its market, they also delved into crafting their own spin to their dishes. Thanks to their creative culinary team, they managed to develop an all-local bill of fare spread in two parts: “Classics”, if you’re in the traditional side, and “Twists” for those who want to try something different and have an adventurous palate.

    On the roster of their Classics is the House Crispy Sisig (starts at Php 205). It’s more like the typical Filipino sisig (chopped pig face and ears topped with raw egg, usually served on a sizzling plate) except that it nourishes a distinct crunch and creamier taste that channels the provincial Pampanga staple.

    On the other hand, Manam’s very own Sinigang na Beef Short Rib & Watermelon (starts at Php 300) is upping the ante on the usual Filipino sour stew or sinigang recipe. It’s one of the dishes in the Twists menu since it is utterly different from the usual pale-colored pork sinigang as the soup wins its reddish color from the watermelon extract.

    It also gives it the subtle sweetness over its sour taste. Plus points for the juicy beef short rib which is really malinamnam. Expats have to try this dish; it will give them a remarkable first impression on Philippine cuisine.

    For their All-Day Pancit, try the Crispy Pancit Palabok (starts at Php 250). Manam will wow you with how creative and unusual they present this Filipino noodle dish favorite – it’s served as a tower of crispy pancit strands topped with crushed chicharon (fried pork rinds) and, of course, the shrimp and egg slices on the side. It sure tastes amazing as it looks!

    For dessert, Bibingkang Ube (Php 170) is Manam’s best-seller from their All-day Sweets menu. Bibingka is a popular type of rice cake in the Philippines that is commonly served during Christmas season. They made it even more Filipino by putting a nice swirl of ube (purple yam) on top of it. Taste heaven with its soft and delicate texture with the right amount of sweetness in every bite.
