Ma Mon Luk is still the quaint restaurant of old. They started in Chinatown, Manila way back then and now the only existing branch is the one on Quezon Ave.
The restasturant walls are decorated by framed old newspaper and magazine clippings about the restaurant. Big ceiling fans with no air conditioners. Cash only.
Even with these they are always full during lunch and dinner, for its 'Filipinized' Chinese dishes.
Value for your money!
Favorite Dish: Ma Mon Luk is famous for its big bowl of "mami" (chicken or beef noodle) soup and big "siopao" (steamed pork dumpling) with their secret, delicious sauce.
Try also their "pancit canton" (fried noodle), "lumpiang shangai" (meat roll), etc.
Good Filipino foods... i suggest the Sangkalan Grill at Sct.Albano South Triangle Quezon City.
not just good but delicious..
Prices are reasonable for all the menus. Grilled fresh seafoods, meat and poultry. Tha ambiene is also good as the typical filipino landscape.
They also have branches in Visayas AVe and Fairview both in Quezon City
Favorite Dish: Sisig, Pinaputok na pla pla, Kare kare, and inihaw na pusit.
Recipes is a Korean-thai-fil-chinese fusion resto.. their signature dishes is definitely a must try. With their minimalist interior (trinoma branch) it complements their food presentation. I personally love their General Chicken (P200), and Crispy Tilapia (P200). Another good pick is the Adobo flakes and the Chicken teriyaki which is located on their P165 meals which includes a dish, rice and a glass of ice tea..
Service is friendly and efficient specially the Manager. Recipes is not exactly authentic gourmet food.. more on simple comfort food that you can really prepare at home. =) Ill give it a B for its presentation, details and service. It’s really a must try for couple on a date and to those people want to impress their family treating them to Sunday’s lunch after Mass (10AM) inside Trinoma.
I’ve had the same wonderful eating experience (is there such a thing?) as when I ate at the TriNoMa branch (click here for the tip ) except for one, yet important, detail – there were no oysters. Word from the kitchen is that it is still being cooked and it will take an hour more from the time that we finish eating. Their timing should have been much better, as we have arrived on a normal lunch hour.
Oh well, I just took my frustration on the dirty ice cream. Poor thing…
The recently opened Kamay Kainan in Trinoma Mall is an eat-all-you-can buffet style Filipino cuisine restaurant. I've been to a few eat-food-half-your-body-weight places and I would say that this is one of the good ones I've eaten in. Joan and her parents seem to agree as well.
There are around sixty (60) Filipino dishes in the buffet table and you can add more to it when you order lechon (roast pig) and oysters. The oysters are superb and we would have ordered another plate had our stomach cooperated with us. The roast pig and oysters are not included in the buffet table and must be ordered separately, but of no extra cost.
Favorite Dish: I tried and liked some usual Filipino dishes like nilagang baka (beef broth soup with vegetables), ginatang alimango (crab in coconut milk), and sinigang na hipon (shrimp in sour broth).
For dessert, I helped myself for some "dirty" ice cream. Dirty ice cream, for foreigners and 'sosyal' alike, is unbranded ice cream. This kind of ice cream is sold on streets beside our beloved street foods. The one served here has an authentic "dirtiness" in it and I loved it!
The best part of this experience it only took us back around P245 per, tax included. That is quite cheap compared to other eat-all-your-stomach-will-allow restaurants.
This branch is currently open. Open from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm today. Su, M, T, W, Th, F, Sa: 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
If your craving for crabs and seafood Crustasia is the perfect place to go. It offer a wide varity of delicious crabs and seafood from Crab Maritess, A King Crab sautéed in olive oil, white wine, garlic and chili to Singaporean chilli Crab. You can also order Shrimps, lobsters, Squid and a lot more. It's really a good Crustacean Restuarant.
Aside from that the place have a cusual and relaxing ambience to it, qith good service and friendly crew. Well, your money is worth it. Just make sure that you know the rates of their crabs 'coz it's a little pricey. But the rest in the menu is not that expensive
Heaven n Eggs restaurant is great dining experience when you go there during the weekdays. It’s terribly crowded during weekends that you need to queue for your turn. A one of the best breakfast restaurant in Quezon city and the food are barely for two persons... so i think the price compensate =) A must try for person/traveller who seeks for a heavy breakfast.
Favorite Dish: Steak and Panacakes are the best!
One of the best Ilonggo restuarant thereis inside Quezon CIty. A very nice ambience and all the seafood menu is to die for.
Favorite Dish: I tried the Baked talaba and i would like you to try it too. Also their KBL (short for Kadios, Baboy and Langka), and also the Chicken Inasal (Roasted Chicken) is a must among Visayan dishes as one doesn’t need a sauce to make the meal delicious.
Eating at Italiannis is such a mouth watering experience . The Spaghetti and Meatballs is my favorite. Seasoned with marinara sauce, it surely satisfies my hunger pangs. I just love the generous servings. A must try for everyone! Enjoy!
Favorite Dish: Pasta!!!!
You’ve listened to Filipino music, seen Filipino movies and eaten Filipino food. But have you ever been to an authentic Filipino Café? Out of the 12 coffee shops in the Philippines, is there one that offers a modern Filipino coffee experience? The café culture has found its way to the everyday lives of modern sophisticates as seen in the growing numbers of coffee shop emerging in the metro. However, most of these cafes, if not foreign brands, are trying to market themselves as European or Western. Stripped of all other elements, they basically offer the same thing and none of them serve homegrown desserts and coffee.
Favorite Dish: Serye Café Filipino offers one of the widest selections of Filipino desserts that are relevant to the ever-changing demands of the Filipino palate. Serye Cafe Filipino’s dessert menu includes veritable local delicacies brought to a cosmopolitan twist from Tablea Cheesecake, to Fondue Filipino with assorted turon, to mini ensaymada and other local desserts.
From Singapore! Elegant Ambiance!
Favorite Dish: I like the the creamy and spicy Curry Chicken meal here - This is their TOP of the line. It is one of the best curries I have tasted in Manila! Price: P139. The meal consists of one small bowl of tasty curry chicken curry, spaghetti and one rice.
Visiting this restaurant for the 1st time will give the impression that is not your average looking café, Its daunting and massive faced of wood and glass attest to the unique and enticing presence that awaits the unaware, it’s ethnic décor seduce the senses and provide aesthetic appeal, the arm color entice its dinners to relax and unwind with live acoustic band at night. The food is adventurous, the finest of Ostrich cooking can be found here, although Ostrich is rare in the Philippines but widely recognized delicacy in Australia, The ostrich they served are bred and shipped from southern Philippines.
Favorite Dish: If Exotic Ostrich is not to your like, try there fried chicken wings served with hot spicy sauce, calamares, crab cake, parmesan Lapu-lapu, pizza, pasta, salads and sandwiches-served with special exotic flare

Favorite Dish: Although I visited this place just once:
My favorite(as of now!) is the Spanish Beef Salpicao(spicy hot version) because of its creamy, less salty flavor. A mild spicy version is also available, just ask the waitress.
If you are in Quezon City and looking for delicious and affordable restaurant this is the place for you, plus there courtous employee. This restaurant also offer grand buffet for a price of php250 (US$5.43) every night.
Favorite Dish: Dont forget to try there delicious seafood roll a combination of fresh fillet fish , ***ake mushroom and crabstick roll in sotanghon, they also have the best pork speribs.
As you enter the restaurant you will notice the worn furniture, an indoor platform seating area with low table, mats and throw pillow. The piano near the kitchen counter that add romantic to the place. So if you are looking for a something different try this place, not only that, the loving atmosphere extend to there menu. The concept of this restaurant is that upon eating their food, it will make you feel as if you’ve been enchanted will a spell because their food is supposedly that great. And they have their “manghuhula” (fortune teller) who could read your near future using playing cards for php300 (US$6.50).
Favorite Dish: Try there Belly Dancing (grilled salmon belly) php165 (US$3.58) delicious, and they are also known for the BTS (Better than Sex) php58 (US$1.26)/ slice, this chocolate cake with white frosting and lashing of chocolate syrup. But my favorite among them all is Pavlova Wand php85 (US$1.84) Definitely a must, it look like a foam cake sprinkle with a couple of grapes, a slice of kiwi and a couple of peaches whipped with sweetened evaporated milky syrup yummy. Also try there Broken Promises and Sweetest Taboo among our favorite.
