8 New Restaurants to Discover
this June 2018
By Therese Aseoche
June signifies the end of summer, which means we’re finally getting a break from the scorching heat we’ve been suffering for the past months. (Hopefully, that is.) So when the sun finally gets to take a chill pill this June, try out these 8 new food places around Metro Manila!
The arrival of this Michelin-starred franchise from Hong Kong was met with excitement, especially by those who were looking forward to tasting the famous roasted goose. Sadly, our local Kam’s Roast does not serve the esteemed dish but that doesn’t make it any less appealing to foodies of the Metro. Kam’s Roast delivers an authentic and quality Chinese cuisine — something that not a lot of local Chinese restaurants can achieve — that will delight you upon first bite. Do yourself a favor and order the Roast Duck, Char Siu, and Crispy Roast Pork!
We all scream for ice cream! Tokeru is the newest dessert bar you can find in SM Megamall, and it aims to satisfy your sweet tooth. Indulge in a melt-in-your-mouth sweet treat consisting of your choice of Lava Cake flavor topped with your choice of Ice Cream flavor and your choice of special toppings and chocolate fudge.
Agimat Foraging Bar and Kitchen
Agimat treats its food and drinks like works of art, and every dish that gets served to your table will take your breath away. They use only local and high quality ingredients to craft their cocktails and dishes — most of which owner Kalel Demetrio makes himself — to elevate our distinctively Pinoy cuisine to levels beyond what we could ever imagine. Get for yourself the Balut at Chicharon or the Mollusco, and pair it with the Agimat ng Sawi cocktail or the Ritual ng Agimat which comes with a special number from the servers.
Quarks and Quills
Quarks and Quills is described to be a study center and workspace where you can not only hangout to study and/or work, but you can also take special classes, tutorials, and college entrance exam review courses. There’s food available all day long too — rice meals, starters, and warm drinks — so you can satisfy your appetite while you’re finishing your summer homework or working on your next project.
