  • Lunes Everday Dining in Makati: Filipino Comfort Food and Boozy Brunches
  • Out of all the days of the week, Monday isn’t exactly everyone’s favorite. It’s usually the start of another work week, and it seems so far away from the weekends! However, one restaurant in Poblacion seems to know just how to bring some joy to your week, starting on Mondays—this is Lunes Everyday Dining!

    Lunes, named after the English term for Monday, is a restaurant in Poblacion, Makati City that features a homey, sophisticated vibe with its welcoming space for those looking for hot and delicious meals to fuel you up for the day ahead.

    Its interiors make you somehow feel nostalgic as it resembles grandma’s modern home, where you can take a good whiff of her delicious homecooked meals!

    With tables for small groups of one or two, as well as larger tables that can seat groups of up to 6 to 8 guests, the restaurant is a perfect dining venue for any time of day—be it your morning coffee routine, a quick lunch, or a weekend dinner with colleagues, friends, and family.

    Situated just below Havitat Boutique Hotel, Lunes is far from the vibrant sights and sounds of Poblacion, making it the perfect breakfast place for guests and other people staying nearby who want a quiet time from a night of partying.

    Lunes serves familiar and comforting Filipino food that we all know and love. The menu was crafted to feature beloved classics as well as regional specialties for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as hot brews, iced coffee, and creative cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.

    Among these Pinoy comfort food include their Pares-style Beef Spring Rolls filled with braised soy beef cheeks, as well as Chicharon Bulaklak featuring deep-fried ruffled fat, glazed with honey patis.

    What perhaps makes them unique from other Filipino restaurants in the Metro is their introduction of dishes from other regions of the Philippines, including the tender and flavorful Chicken Piaparan, a Maranao dish originating from Mindanao, featuring chicken quarter in coconut curry sauce.

    Other favorites include the Kare-Kare with beef and fried vegetables in creamy peanut sauce, and Crispy Tadyang which highlights the delicious beef short ribs with sweet soy glaze and crispy fried garlic. Pescatarians, on the other hand, can also enjoy the miso-glazed Grilled Hamachi Collar.

    What’s more, if you want to experience a bit of Poblacion’s wilder side, try their refreshing drinks, including the boozy Hulog Hulog, the  thirst-quenching Pandan Iced Tea, and the sweet Mais Con Friz, an elevated version of the Filipino favorite, Mais Con Hielo!
