Zamboanga: Typical "Pilipino"
Nice restaurant and atmosphere, main courses are philippine specialities and sea food. You taste the mix between the Spanish and the local "Pilipino" cuisine.
Favorite Dish: Try the "Paella Negra", a paella (sea food cooked with rice Spanish style) with black octopus ink.... superb!Related to:

Ziggurat: A shrine to Middle Eastern cuisine
The restaurant offers a good variety of Middle Eastern, South Asian and Mediterranean cuisine - from Indian samosas to the ubiquitous (and extremely necessary) kebabs to Spanish and Italian cuisine (hey, they still share the same Mediterranean Sea!).
The restaurant initially consisted of a few monobloc chairs and tables, arranged along a converted sidewalk, sans any decor. Now, they have converted an adjoining property into an Arabic-themed place, complete with the cushions and thick carpets.
Favorite Dish: The chicken curry exude a warm, exotic taste, so refreshingly un-Filipino (heavy, greasy), although those after spicy curries are in for a disappointment. The kebabs are cooked just right-a notch higher than well-done. And the Indian samosas are light, yet filling, with its citrusy sauce leaving subtle sweet taste, which goes well with the orangy flavor.
The baklava, though, was a disappointment - too dry and almost tasteless.
You should also try their authentic Middle
Eastern tea concoctions.
Tramway Garden: Wallet Wise and Tummy Wise
The food is rich and elegant buffet a combination of pilipino, chinese and japanese menu in one. This is a cheapest buffet in town that serve 30 to 40 dishes for the price of US$4 net per person, Try this place you wont regrets its yummy.....
Favorite Dish: dont forget to try there sweet and sour pork i love it, and the butchie w a sweet mongo felling inside.
Cafe Havana: Cuban Restaurant
Located on the busy street of Remedios in Malate, Cafe Havana is part of the LJC Restaurant chain (Cafe Adriatico, In The Mood, Bollywood among others)
Lunch buffet was great although it wasn't all cuban food - they had my favorite food served that day - Shrimp :)
Getting the lunch buffet was considerable cheaper since most entrees start at 295+
Favorite Dish: Lunch buffet - 345
Coke Light - 50+
Cuban Sandwich with choice of soup - 295+
What i liked on their buffet:
1. Pepper Steak Hemingway - although this was a bit too rare for me
3. Ube (for desert)
4. TostadosRelated to:

Luk Yuen Noodle House: (Affordable) Chinese fit for a Taipan
I must admit that I am a great fan of Chinese food, with almost regular cravings for dimsum or wanton noodle soup. Whenever these cravings hit me (and when there's nothing to warrant any splurging; read: simple days), I head off to any of the Luk Yuen branches in Metro Manila (my favorite branch is in the old Greenbelt in Makati, fronting another Filipino food institution - Max's Fried Chicken).
It is during one of these cravings that I have realized Luk Yuen, despite their very affordable prices, could please the palate of a taipan -- oh no, not just a taipan, but THE taipan -- the well-respected and highly regarded Henry Sy, Sr., major shareholder of the SM chain of supermalls! Arguably, Mr. Sy is the most well respected of the Philippines' Filipino-Chinese taipans.
Anyways, while enjoying my usual wanton noodle soup and shrimp dumpling at Luk Yuen's SM Megamall branch, Mr. Sy silently and unassumingly entered the resto along with his wife and perhaps their personal secretary, ordered some food, silently enjoyed them and without any fanfare, left the resto.
Now I could finally claim I have dined with a taipan (well, not really together, but at least, at the same time and place ) :-)
Favorite Dish: The wanton noodle soup and shrimp dumpling are my personal favorites here. Sometimes, I also have some machang, but you have to ask for the freshly prepared ones.
PANDE MANILA: BREAD THAT NEVER SLEEP
Pan de Manila, the bread house that never sleep, they uses the traditional brick oven in baking its popular pandesal, all the breads were cooked/baked using fire from wood with a large brick oven situated right infront of the display area. The preparation was done manually except that the ingredients were already pre-mixed. Throughout generations, the humble pandesal has always had a special place on the breakfast table of Filipinos Pandesal have a natural, freshly–baked and distinct "pugon" taste, with no added preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. So if you visit phillipines never forget to try this delicious pandesal, they have so many braches nationwide, always hot from the oven and 24/7 services
Favorite Dish: It is a rounded in shape, has a crunchy outside but very soft inside with a powdery texture and can be prepared in a number of ways by using numerous sandwich spreads. like butter, cheese, various filled scrambled egg or omelets, sausages, bacon, Spanish sardines, jams, jellies and marmalades, coffee, tea or hot chocolate. YUMMY
A "member" of the famed Aristocrat Restaurant family (together with the Grandmother of Restaurants in the Philippines - the Aristocrat, and their fastfood grandchildren owned Reyes Barbeque). They serve similar meals - mostly native food - sinigang, crispy pata, etc. Their specialty is still their Chicken, Pork and Sparerib Barbeque with Java Rice.
Great service, when I requested to remove the sticks on the pork barbeque, they did. :)
Favorite Dish: We ordered:
Pork Barbeque with Java Rice and atchara (native salad?) - P155
Surf and Turf (Chicken Barbeque and choice of: Salmon or Tuna Barbeque) with Java Rice and atchara - P195Related to:

Zensho: Japanese food in manila
The restaurant is not that big like any japanese restaurant the waitress will welcome you in japanese language, it is not a typical buffet restaurant that the food is already in the buffet table, this time you need to order the food you like and they will cook it for you. left over is not allowed, so you will only order the food that you can consumed.
Favorite Dish: There oyter is bake and served with sauce, this is the best oyster i ever try, i recommend this restaurant to my freind and they say the oyter is really fresh and tasty my whole family keep going back this place.
WAIYING: The Best Dim Sim in The Philippines
The restaurant is a narrow space like a typical small Chinese restaurant were you can see at the entrance an aluminum counter that serves for cooking noodles and congee. Despite the fact my house is walking distance to Greenhills shopping area were you can find many different kind of restaurant, we still visit Waiying Restaurant even parking is so difficult plus the fact going there it take us half hour and more because we need to fast the one of the busiest place in manila a university belt were a traffic is so heavy specially school days.
Favorite Dish: Who can resist there delicious siomai (steamed pork dumpling w lots of shrimps Php45), There famous fried Tofu, my son favorite hamsoikuk and my daughter die food salad roll.
Teriyaki Boy: Ika Fry, etc.
Of all the Japanese fastfood restaurant I've tried, I like Teriyaki Boy the best. I heard from someone who's been to Japan that Teriyaki Boy in Japan is considered as fast food. But here, I consider it as full service restaurant, minus the service charge. Food is fresh, always hot, management and stuff are generally friendly and helpful, and Iced Tea is refillable. Some branches, like the one in Megamall Megastrip Building B, they have a non-smoking dining area which is really outside the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Ika Fry I eat at Teriyaki at least twice a week and I always have Ika Fry (breaded, deep fried squid cuts). The squid used is fresh and the breading delicious and the order comes with fresh shredded cabbage and dressing. Sometimes I get the Seafood Teriyaki which is equally delicious.Related to:
