High rise buildings, high-end shops, high na high din sa trapik tuwing rush hour. Ilan lang ‘yan sa kung paano mo pwedeng ilarawan o di kaya ay i-associate ang Ortigas.

Dito sa “concrete jungle” ng Metro Manila, tinutukan namin sa Round Trip ang mga lugar na malapit sa MRT 3 Ortigas Station para patunayan na hindi ibig sabihin kapag nasa paligid ng mga high-rise buildings, ay high rin ang mga presyo ng mga dapat puntahan dito.

1

Subspace Coffee House
Grand Emerald Tower, F. Ortigas Jr. Road corner Garnet Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City
Dito lang sa Ortigas makikita ang Subspace Coffee House. Bukod sa kanilang pasta and all day rice meals, coffee is served with art. Must try the house specialty na Peanut Butter Latte or Purple Potato Latte (ube)!
Peanut Butter latte 12oz= P145

2

Eat My English Bar and Resto
88 Meralco Ave, Ugong, Pasig
Tired of fast food? Then try Eat My English Bar and Resto, a 24-hour go-to-place to have your favorite Pinoy cuisine. Nakakaaliw ang kanilang menu dahil sa kakatwang entries dito gaya ng Bicool Express and Fork Adobo.
Bicool express= P140

Cocow Barn
Grand Emerald Tower, Ortigas Jr. Road
corner Garnet Road, Ortigas, Pasig City
Another uniquely-Ortigas ang Cocow Barn. Cute ang kanilang interiors at meron silang second floor na may maliliit na function rooms na good for small events. They have a variety of offerings from burgers to cold and hot drinks.

Ortigas Park
Emerald Ave, Ortigas Center, Pasig City
Pagod na sa kalalakad? May kailangan i-meet? O di kaya gusto mo lang huminga saglit from your hectic schedule? Then the Ortigas Park is just right for you. May mga benches sila waiting for you. And when you’re here, don’t miss to take a look at the park’s murals na nagpapakita ng short history ng lugar.
