8 New Restaurants
This May 2018
By Therese Aseoche
When it comes to food, you can never run out of options here in Greater Metro Manila. If you’re in need of trying something new this month — be it for a Mother’s Day treat or to get some much needed R&R during Finals — check our these newly opened restaurants and cafés that are worth looking out for:
This new restaurant at Ayala Triangle Gardens will completely change your preconceived notions about Japanese curry (or any kind of curry, in general). CAMP Curry, hailing from Tokyo by Chef Takashi Sato, has reached our shores to serve only the freshest vegetables of the season with your choice of meat (shrimp, pork belly, beef, or sausage) and your preferred curry sauce — Tokyo best-seller Brown Keema Curry, uber spicy but hella healthy 100% veggie Green Vegeful Curry, and one that can only be found in Manila, the Red Bisque Curry, inspired by the Filipino’s love for seafood.

Here is another piece of heaven built for matcha addicts! Nomi Matcha & Açaí will serve you everything — from a warm cup of matcha latte to a melt-in-your-mouth matcha cake — that will have you singing praises. Don’t miss out on the café’s star dessert: Tiramisu Dream! Not only is it Insta-perfect for the feed, but it’s also so addicting that you’ll have to stop yourself from ordering more.
Da Gianni Cucina Italiana
We may have said those a lot about other restaurants, but Da Gianni Cucina Italiana is one place you should go to for a truly authentic Italian culinary experience. You’ll get your money’s worth with such a varied menu consisting of delicious pasta dishes, pizzas, mains, and more. Matteo Guidicelli’s knowledge of Italian cuisine, as well as his attention to detail and care for customer experience, shines through the quality of the dishes he serves.
Although you can’t expect the quantity of a single dish to fill you up straight away, this hardly becomes a problem because it means you get to try out as many dishes as you can. You’re allowed to splurge every once in a while after all!
Shawa Wama’s shawarma is more than what you’re used to. Those who’ve already tried it consider it being their next big addiction, but there’s no other way to find out for sure until you’ve had it yourself. You can choose among lamb, beef, or chicken to put on pita bread, over rice, or over hummus! And, of course, it’s not shawarma without the sauce which Shawa Wama also offers in varying flavors! It’s amazing how everything is so affordable given the quality of the ingredients and the size of its servings.
But that’s not all this grab-and-go stall has to offer; you can also expect delicious veggie options in its menu. Top it all off with yogurt and sorbet on a hot day!
