We Filipinos are admired for our notable desire and passion for food. From the streets to the finest restaurants, we always find ourselves excited and drooling over all sorts of food—as if each of them is a gourmet meal. It’s safe to say that this love for food is one of the reasons why we are named as one of the happiest people in the world. We find not only comfort but also great happiness in eating; it is a form of therapy for most of us.

With that in mind, we collated a list of new restaurants in Metro Manila to look out for in case you go out with a growling tummy and want to find a fresh place for a happy food remedy.


1. Wagga Wagga Jerk Chicken

This new restaurant in Ortigas brings the taste of Jamaican cuisine to Manila for the first time. Wagga Wagga is serving the latest international flavor to break the usual taste and aroma the Filipinos got used to.

While being family friendly, the resto can also be the new favorite hangout place for yuppies after a tiring day’s work because they serve a wide selection of liquors. Here’s another tip: they bottle-keep, which means they can store your unfinished bottle under your name and allow you to claim it when you get back next time.

Location: Meralco Commercial Complex, 88 Meralco Ave. cor. Julia Vargas Ortigas, Pasig City
Opening Hours: Mon – Thu, 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM | Fri, 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM | Sat, 6:00 AM to 12:00 AM | Sun, 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Chicken is ubiquitous in this place, but Lucky Chick serve munchies and salads as well. Although they have pork and beef alternatives to chicken, they would like to be prominent in serving quality chicken.
