10 Best Things We Ate This October

Noteworthy dishes in this food-filled month.


(SPOT.ph) If you didn’t already know, here at SPOT.ph, we love food. You need it to live, but we find that there are some dishes that go well past the virtue of necessity. While others content themselves with a deep fryer and the usual salt and pepper, there are some who make—or at least try to make—an art out of it, with delicious displays and even yummier flavors. We believe those that go above and beyond their duty deserve necessary recognition. So here are our top picks among the dishes we ate throughout October.



Holy Smokes’ Beef Brisket

Holy Smokes offers an array of different barbecues, but the one that stands out is their Beef Brisket. This meat dish cuts like butter and melts into a burst of juiciness with each and every bite. Their assortment of sauces also adds a different dimension, allowing you to explore loads of different flavors.



Holy Smokes is at 5834 Matilde corner Jacobo Street, Barangay Poblacion, Makati City.

Providore’s Zucchini Pecorino Fries

French fries are as addicting as can be. We should know—we’ve tried our fair share. But Providore changed the french fry game by making theirs out of zucchini. This perfectly crisp finger food goes perfectly with its buttermilk ranch dip and that fresh touch of lemon that gives it the right amount of acidity.


Providore is at G/F SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City.

Taperia Poblacion’s Pugon Lechon of Pork Belly

Chef Ariel Manuel’s playful tapas restaurant features the chef's creative takes on Spanish-inspired favorites ("Shallow Spanish," in his words), but it's the Pugon Lechon of Pork Belly that's sure to catch your eye the moment you step inside. Perfectly crackly outside and succulent inside, it hardly needs any of the house-made sauce it's served with.
