If you're a foodie, a friend who appreciates food as much as you do is the best friend of all. They know that feasting or eating together is always a good idea and that happiness indeed comes in a basket of cheese fries. They also get that the time and place for food is actually any time and any place. Bad day? Let’s eat. Great day? Let’s eat! Annoyed? Let’s freaking eat. These friends make for the best friends, and what better way to celebrate your cool camaraderie than by going on unique food trips? But you don't need to scour the metro for hole in the wall finds because a lot of our fave foodie destinations have been amping up their selections as well. Here are some gems that you just must try:

No one really knows when this drink was invented, but the sure thing here is when ice became available, people started appreciating it. Here's Kabisera's version of Sago't Gulaman, mostly popular during the sizzling summer months but totally enjoyable any time of the year, this drink is absolutely sweet and very thirst-quenching!

From now on, when you think Philly, think sushi because Teriyaki Boy seems to be definitely on a roll, no pun intended. And what we mean by on a roll is that they have their very own sushi roll called Philly Cheesesteak Roll (P243.10) The Philly roll features cream cheese alongside avocado, cucumber, onion, sesame seeds, and smoked salmon. We also suggest you try all the roll favorites from this restaurant in crispy tuna, crazy maki, and crunchy salmon for a complete sushi experience.
