Drop the usual friend chicken and head to Gostoso for Portugese-style chicken that hits the spot! Don’t forget the piri-piri sauce, an oil-based chili sauce that gives your chicken an extra kick. Your order comes with a side dish of creamed spinach, creamed corn, potato gratin or olive rice.
2. Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina

One of the more popular hangouts in Kapitolyo, Silantro serves good Mexican grub at a relatively affordable price. For starters, order their beef nachos – loaded with beef strips and cheese, you and your barkada will finish this in minutes! Make sure to come early as the place gets packed during rush hour.
3. Grande Torino

If you’re craving for Italian food, Grande Torino is the place to be. You’ll be sure to get authentic Italian cuisine. Order their bestseller Spaghetti All’Amatricianna, or the Pizza Quattro Stagioni with its varied meat toppings. Make sure you save room for dessert – their tiramisu is one of the best in Metro Manila!

Hiyas serves up Filipino comfort food that will remind you of home. The Bagnet ala Lechon Cebu is to die for, and the Beef Belly Kare Kare is an all-time favorite. For a dish that can’t get any more Pinoy, try the Trio Adobo – Adobong Pusit sa Gata, Adobong Baboy sa Achuete, and Tinuyo na Adobong Manok.
5. Tomahawk Chops and Grill

Tomahawk is the best place for some grilled pork chops and baby back ribs! The meats are tender and flavorful, and go well with a side of “Go Dirty” rice or mac and cheese. While waiting for your orders, get some onion rings or chili cheese fries for the middle. This is a great place to catch up and have drinks with friends!
