Ayala has been a good spot for food and leisure pero dapat medyo willing ka gumastos because prices here tend to be a little more expensive compared sa iyong average na gimikan.
We decided to venture deeper into the concrete jungles of Makati (one jeepney ride away lang) to places suggested to me by a cousin working around this area. And we were not disappointed.
Mang Tootz Food House
124 Valero, Makati City
Basically, Mang Tootz is P99 ulam-kanin carinderia style that has built a reputation for serving delicious lutuing bahay. Maliit lang ang kanilang place and medyo maraming kumakain tuwing lunch hour kaya konting pasensya sa pila.
Bicol Express with rice – P99
Valero Plaza Condominium, San Agustin St., Salcedo Village, Makati City
Para naman sa mahilig sa kape, at para maiba naman from the usual go-to-coffee shops, DiCoFi is one worth a try. It’s a Vietnamese coffee shop that will fill your caffeine needs. Di ka na lalayo after mo mag-lunch kasi katabi lang nito ang Mang Tootz
Iced coffee – P110
Salcedo Village, 118 Valero Street, Makati City
Cakes ang specialty ng Claudette’s pero you can still get a good meal here na hindi masyadong pricey.
121 Valero Street, Makati City.
Get your favorite tea here. Ang maganda sa Tea Beri is they have plenty of toppings to choose from. Cheese froth ang kanilang best seller topping.
Matcha Milk Tea with black pearl – P130
Other places to visit:
For those who want a quick meal bago umuwi sa bahay o pumasok sa trabaho. Gudsilog is right inside Ayala station.
Lower Ground Floor, SM Makati, Makati City
Those who have tried Hokkaido Takoyaki are always saying na it’s very filling because their serving is big.
Paseo De Roxas St Cor Makati Ave Cor, Ayala Ave, Makati City
Hindi naman kailangan magastos. Why not try walking around Makati’s favorite park?
LPL Manor, Ground Floor, San Agustin, Salcedo Village, Makati City
Warung Indo is one of the definitions of pricey but worth a try. A lot of foreigners love to eat here.
111 Paseo de Roxas Building, 2F, Makati City
Korean restaurant with great reviews especially sa kanilang chicken cheese fondue and bingsu, a Korean shaved iced dessert.
2nd Floor, Glorietta 3, Brgy San Lorenzo, Makati City
Some call this an “underrated pizza house.” Baka chance mo na to para malaman once and for all kung ano ang totoo.
