"There's a gazillion of choices..." Native Restaurants Tip by imho
Native Restaurants, Manila: 16 reviews and 24 photos
There's a gazillion of choices to satisfy your every craving...from genuine Filipino restaurants ranging from the tony to the turo-turo, Chinese lauriat and dimsum places, Japanese sushi bars and misono grills, Indian, American, Italian...you name it.
Best Filipino restaurant: <font color=red><b>Kamayan</font></b> is still the leader of the pack. You have a choice of eating the traditional way (with your fingers) or with kubiertos (flatware...less fun).
Best Chinese food: At <font color=red><b>President</font></b> in Chinatown.
Kamayan and President are always packed with locals (Filipinos and Filipino-Chinese, respectively), which is always a good sign. They're huge, well maintained establishments as well.
Favorite Dish: No Filipino culinary experience is complete without experiencing adobo (pork and/or chicken stewed in soy sauce, vinegar, pepper corns, and garlic). Seafood dishes such as Kamayan's Yaman Dagat in chili sauce are also sure fire hits. Kare-kare (oxtail in peanut sauce) with bagoong (fish paste) shouldn't be missed.
At President's be sure to try their eel and 'two-toned fried rice.' Sheer heaven.
Directions: Kamayan has several branches: Pasay Road in Makati, EDSA Greenhills, Timog Avenue, SM Megamall. President is located on Ongpin St. in Chinatown.
