Our “usuals” bring us comfort and ease when deciding where to go, what to wear, and what to eat among many other variations of 5Ws. However, there are times when they become the sad version of “same old stuff,” hence making us crave for new things.

In case this happens to you and your stomach, here are some restaurants that just opened in the north. (Living in the south? We’ve also listed five new restos that may be near your neighborhood.)

Prima Facie is a bar within a bar in Quezon City. It serves an interesting array of drinks like Stacy’s Mom, a chamomile-infused gin with lavender bitters, blanc vermouth, and a sweet egg white foam, and Fake Love, a sweet and spicy millennial pink-colored cocktail. The man behind the bar is Royce Pua, 2017’s World Class Bartender of the Year and also the mixologist of 12/10, the izakaya-style restaurant in Makati.

It may not be summer anymore, but iced desserts will always have a room in our stomachs. Froozy Snow Bar satisfies just that craving. They have a wide variety of snow flavors, drizzles, and toppings, and all are made from scratch. Their own take on halo-halo has seven toppings, a coconut jam drizzle, and whipped cream.


Black Scoop Cafe

101 Maginhawa St., Teachers Village, Quezon City

Can’t decide what to get between milk tea and ice cream? Black Scoop Cafe’s got you—they’ll let you get them both in just one offering. Get an ice cream cup from them with either a milk tea or mascarpone base. You can have them topped with syrups or crunches like cookies and crushed Graham crackers.
