Crisp on 28th is a neighborhood cafe located on the 28th street in BGC created by ‘the fat kid inside’ Erwan Heussaff. It serves all-day breakfast and international favorites with a modern twist from Erwan, presented on beautiful vintage plates. It’s for the health conscious yuppy crowd. It’s not for people looking to fill up on rice. We recommend the Crisp Beef Tapa 2.0, Chargrilled Flat Iron Steak, Tinapa and Quinoa Salad and the Lapu-Lapu. Our insider tip is to watch out for their specials menu for new items. Also, if you have a sweet tooth, you could try their newly released make-your-own cookie milkshakes and cake milkshakes.

The Farmacy is an old-fashioned ice cream parlour serving ‘a dose of deliciousness’ good for the soul. Opened by the same team behind the popular Wildflour Cafe + Bakery restaurants, they offer a variety of fresh homemade ice creams, coffee, pastries and milkshakes for children and adults to enjoy. It’s for dessert lovers. It’s not for people on a diet. We recommend the Dusty Road Sundae or design your own bowl how you like it. Finish it quick as some say the ice cream melts quick. Our insider tip is to try before you buy so you don’t waste on an order. P.S. Guests from The Farmacy can order from Wildflour Cafe + Bakery, which is right beside it, and vice versa.

Pink’s Hotdogs is a world-famous Hollywood hotdog joint from Los Angeles, California. From its first cart in 1939, it has now expanded to over 15 branches in the US. The Manila branch is their first international location brought in by the Wildflour group; it is quite the replica of the original Hollywood branch, but indoor. It’s for diners looking for a unique hotdog experience. It’s not for people who expect street food prices. We recommend the Hollywood Legend (aka the famous Chili Dog). Our insider tip is get your The Farmacy ice cream fix from the parked Kombi inside the store. Fun Fact: Their water is served out of a liter-sized San Mig Pale Pilsen bottle.

Salvatore Cuomo is a well-known Italian pizza joint in Tokyo, famous for its artisan creations. It was created by an Italian-Japanese chef (whom the place is named after), who is also known as the ‘Pioneer of Neapolitan Pizza in Asia’. It’s for pizza lovers who can tell a premium piece of pizza from your typical fast food slice. It’s not for those unwilling to splurge on some good carbs. We recommend the Quattro Formaggi Pizza, Tagliata de Manzo Pizza, and the Torta Caprese for dessert. Our insider tip: Make sure to bring cash; they don’t accept credit cards yet.

Wildflour Café + Bakery is a bakery at heart that offers international fare and specialty breads and cakes. It is the first purveyor of the wildly popular cronuts in Manila. It’s for people who enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch in a place that always feels like Sunday mornings. It’s not for office employees who want quick meals. We recommend their grilled cheese salad and soup combo, mushroom salad, pulled pork sliders and their bestselling kimchi steak fried rice. Don’t forget their über moist to-die-for chocolate cake for dessert! Our insider tip is to get pastries at 50% off after 7pm.
