Just up north, there are many new restaurants that offer different cuisines: Filipino, Japanese, Spanish, American, and even Vietnamese. And the best part is you don’t even have to break the bank to enjoy a sumptuous meal, as these 5 new restaurants offer good food at reasonable prices.

This izakaya or an informal pub is out to prove that there is more to Japanese cuisine than sushi or ramen. Serving yakitori, grilled skewered chicken, pork, or beef to go with sake, Nomiya is the place to go if you’re looking for a chill place to enjoy some Japanese food.

No need to book a ticket to Vietnam to enjoy phở or bánh mì, just in Tomas Morato lies a restaurant that serves these classics as close to as it gets to its real taste.

It seems as if the food park buzz has died down. In its stead now are food halls conveniently located inside malls. Track Bites, a resident of Open Kitchen food hall, is proof as to why this kind of set up works. Good for sharing and cooked any way you want, their barbeques make a good food hall staple.
