Piggy Wiggy: A chill spot for 9 to 5ers
Hidden past the cupcake and deli shop is Piggy Wiggy, a tiny but laidback place where stressed 9 to 5ers usually converge and relax over a bottle of ice-cold beer and a sizzling plate of sisig (a famous Filipino beer pair dish).
Hot and filling Filipino fare plus ice-cold beer is the usual top choice among Piggy Wiggy patrons
Located near the corner of Dela Rosa and Perea Streets, the restaurant is an unassuming spot, easy to miss if not for the usual chatter of Makati work denizens who usually head to the resto for a quick cold one and choice Filipino fare.

This little hole-in-the-wall usually caters to 9 to 5ers downing their two bottles while riding out the traffic and the day’s stress, or friends and families on get-togethers—thanks to its affordable prices considering its location within the central business district. Top crowd-pleasers include the Sizzling Pork Sisig (PHP189), the Kare-Kare Lechon (PHP196), while beers go for less than PHP50 (PHP49 for San Miguel Pilsen and Light, PHP65 for Premium, PhP49 for Tanduay Ice).
