The Biggest FamilyMart in Manila Opens Tomorrow and Here’s What You Can Get There
Come and get your onigiri fix!

(SPOT.ph) As kids would say, there’s only one sleep left until the grand opening of the biggest FamilyMart branch, and if you're excited, we feel you. We’ve covered this before, but our sneak-peek visit taught us a few new things.
The extended Japanese menu consists of Ramen (P165), Donburi (P165), and Onigiri (P65). Ramen comes in three variants: the normal Tonkotsu (which we think will be a community favorite!), the spicy Tantanmen, and the more deeply saline Miso broth. The noodles have decent chew, and the classic meat and egg round out what’s looking to be a really, really good deal.
The Donburi also covers most of its bases with Pork Yakiniku, Gyudon, and Katsudon, and they're all great options for a quick lunch or dinner—clearly, FamilyMart has left no stone unturned. The Onigiri is fresh, subtle, and an excellent on-the-go breakfast or snack, just like how one might consume it in Japan. You can choose from Salmon, Spam, Tuna Mayo, Tori Mix, and Tinapa. If you’re really daring, you can pair it with a strong Iced Latte (P65) from the Coffee Creations line.
With a coworking space and 40 seats in the dining area, this massive convenience store is looking more and more like an ideal community space. You can even transition from work to play in a flash, because after 7 p.m., customers are allowed to consume alcohol in the store. Talk about an all-rounder!
With everything this BGC branch has to offer, we can’t help but hope that the blueprint makes its way further across the Metro—and soon!
FamilyMart at UDENNA Tower, Bonifacio Global City opens on Wednesday, November 20 at 11 a.m.
