When you think of food scenes in Metro Manila, the restaurants of Quezon City and Makati come to mind. There are also hidden gems in different districts in Manila, like Binondo’s bustling Chinatown. However, you don’t need to go far from your Altiplano at Avilion Gardens unit to get good eats.
Parañaque is known for its nightlife scene, with its lively casinos, shopping centers, and upscale hotels. It’s home to popular establishments like the City of Dreams Manila and Solaire Resort and Casino. This city’s food scene is also picking up the pace. Here are restaurants you should add to your next food crawl.
If you’re on the hunt for classic Filipino comfort food, head to Ramboy’s, along Presidents Avenue in BF Homes Parañaque. It’s one of the branches of a popular restaurant chain in Aklan. Ramboy’s specialties are its mouth-watering roasted pork belly and chicken. If you’re not in the mood for lechon, the restaurant is also known for its delicious soup dishes, like Sinigang, Bulalo, Sotanghon Soup, and Lomi. It offers stir-fried sotanghon, bihon, and canton noodles, as well.
There’s nothing like a delicious, well-prepared bowl of ramen, like the ones they consistently serve at Mensakaba Geishu. This hidden gem in the Southland Apartelle in BF Homes Parañaque offers a traditional Japanese ramen bar experience.
Its menu features all the classic dishes, like Shoyu Ramen and Miso Ramen. From the noodles to the melt-in-your-mouth chashu, every part of the dish is cooked and prepared the traditional way. Plus, the restaurant offers counter seating, like most ramen restaurants in Japan.
Mensakaba Geishu also offers side dishes like gyoza and grilled rice balls. And if you’re looking for something to wash down all the grub, order some classic sake or a can of Chu-Hi.
If you’re craving Japanese food but want to venture beyond the hearty ramen broths, look no further than Sensei Sushi. It is also located in BF Parañaque, along Aguirre Avenue. This Japanese fusion restaurant offers sushi selections like no other.
Its Spicy Tuna maki has gochujang mayo, an ingredient you’d usually find in Korean street food. The Crispy Philly has cream cheese and aioli, which are commonly found in western cuisine. Sensei also offers traditional salmon, tuna, and uni sashimi.
Every good food crawl has to end with dessert and a cup of coffee or tea. The Cake Planet & Cafe provides both! Situated along Doña Soledad Avenue, this establishment has familiar favorites like Oreo Cheesecakes and Red Velvet Cakes.
However, Cake Planet’s specialties are what made it a household name since it opened in 2010. The Chocolate Macadamia Sansrival is a nutty treat that you should try. Their signature latte is the perfect pair for any of their signature cakes.
Parañaque is a city you shouldn’t snub when it comes to food. The BF subdivision alone has loads of great finds, ranging from Filipino food to Asian fusion. This city is also home to great dessert and cafe places. Pick Parañaque for your next food crawl, and you’re sure to come home to a happy stomach.
