Chef Laudico Guevarra’s, by chefs Roland and Jacqueline Laudico, is a 1920s heritage house restaurant and events place where guests can enjoy an upscale but affordable Filipino buffet dining experience, either in function rooms or outdoors. It’s for special business meetings or big family celebrations. It’s not a place to treat your friends if you’re on a tight budget. We recommend the angus beef tapa, kare-kare, grilled gindara and cream dory with mango curry sauce. Our insider tip is that their clean plate policy charges you P100 for every 100 grams left. P.S. Buffet price is half for kids 4 feet and below.

House of Wagyu is a fine dining restaurant that specializes in graded Wagyu steaks imported from Australia to be cooked on hot stone grills. It’s for special date nights.

All the way from Tokyo, Dohtonbori is Japan’s #1 okonomiyaki restaurant chain that offers the first cook-your-own okonomiyaki experience in Manila. It has over 300 stores in Japan, with branches in Thailand and Taiwan. This is its first branch in the Philippines. It’s for foodies who enjoy DIY meals. It’s not for people who prefer American-style pancakes. We recommend the Deluxe Okonomiyaki, Four-Cheese and Dohtonbori Pizza, and their premium yakiniku. Our insider tip is that Dohtonbori in Japan has released over 200 variants of their famous Japanese pancakes, and lucky us, ’cause Manila could expect the same.
