This neighborhood deli has a comfortable, laidback atmosphere and boasts various choices of hams, salads, sandwiches, and coffee. Take your pick of their deli items, freshly baked goods, produce, craft beer, and packaged greens, then have the Italiano, which is a satisfying meal all on its own.

Cartel is at 199 L.P. Leviste Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City.
Taperia Poblacion and The Sippery
Taperia Poblacion’s colorful interiors will truly make you feel as if you were in Spain. Chef Ariel Manuel's flavorful dishes, like the Olive-Oil Fried Shrimp Camarones, U.S. Ribeye Salpicao, and Chorizo Arrozada with Fried Egg, will make you come back for more. Other must-tries are the pintxos, like the Smoked Salmon and Asparagus, and Mushroom with Cabrales Cheese.
Taperia Poblacion and The Sippery are at 2/F Six Axis Center, 4347 B. Valdez Street, Poblacion, Makati City.
One of the most loved food chains in the U.S. is finally in Manila. Denny’s classic diner setup is known for being a haven for all walks of life. Whether you crave a classic Ham and Cheese Omelette, a healthy Chicken and Cranberry Salad, or a sinful Choco Overload Peanut Butter Pancake Plate, this 24-hour joint has got you covered.
Denny’s is at 9th Avenue corner 38th Street, Uptown Parade, Uptown Bonifacio.
For a perfect Sunday brunch, head over to Apero. The menu has standout dishes for each time of the day, giving a variety of food options to choose from. These meals are made from the ground up to ensure a fresh and fulfilling experience. Order a Good For You Bowl for a hearty start to your day, or a Burnt Black Pudding with Caramelized Apple to satisfy your sweet-tooth cravings.
Apero is at Corinthian Hills, Temple Drive, Quezon City.
There's a new #HOHOL place to check out in Marikina, and it's a concept like no other. Hippie Tipi's dreamy fairy lights, adorable teepees, and all white interiors make for awesome, IG-worthy photos. The Cheesy Beef Pizza and Cheesy Lasagna make Hippie Tipi worth a visit even if it’s a drive all the way to Marikina!
Hippie Tipi is at Unit 7 Bennt II Building, 73 Lilac Street, Barangay Concepcion Dos, Marikina City.
Cheese scraping is definitely on everyone's radars these days. How many times have you seen videos of cheese melting beautifully right in front of you? Head over to Raclette Manila’s pop-up restaurant while you still can and try the Raclette Charcuterie—marbled potatoes, parma ham, arugula salad, and heavenly cheese.
Raclette Manila will be at POP Kitchen by Retail Lab until October 31 only.
The Rainbow Coffee Latte at Happy Beans is as bright as the restaurant’s interiors. This fun restaurant, with playful interiors that includes pops of color and motivational quotes, will surely take you back to childhood. You better stay on for cocktails later in the day, if only as an excuse to have one of their light snacks, such as an irresistible chicken skin dish called Skinny Chix.
Happy Beans is at 2/F Mall of Korea, Metrowalk Commercial Complex, Meralco Avenue, Ugong, Pasig City.
If you loved Summer Palace before, you’ll love it even more now. Their Eight Treasures and Signature Dishes menus contain mouthwatering dishes such as “Maca” with U.S. Kurobuta pork to warm you up, and Deep Fried Prawn with Two Kinds of Egg and Almond Seeds to satisfy any dim sum lover. With a view that overlooks Shangri-La’s resort-type pool area, it's a welcome escape from frantic city life.
Summer Palace is at 2/F Tower Wing, EDSA Shangri-La Manila, 1 Garden Way, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.
Holy Smokes serves a rather short but all the way satisfying menu. The melt-off-the-bone Pork Ribs and moist, juicy Beef Brisket is a testament to their special smoker and smoking process that Holy Smokes never shortcuts. Their sides, on the other hand, should probably be called “Mains” because aside from pairing perfectly with the meat, they are tasty enough to stand on their own! This is one of those places that doesn’t disappoint, no matter what you order.
Holy Smokes is at 5834 Matilde corner Jacobo Street, Barangay Poblacion, Makati City.
After a slew of successful restaurants, the Raintree Group goes back to the basics with their latest masterpiece. Every meal you're bound to have at Providore will feel like a comforting, lazy Sunday, whether you have the Providore Salad or the Steel Plate Cooked Garlic Butter “Salpicao” Steak, or several other delicious options. It's all about no-frills, hearty meals that remind you of what good food is all about.
Providore is at G/F SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City.
