Gone are the days when craving different kinds of food on the regular is only associated with being pregnant as an effect of paglilihi. Anyone is entitled to their own cravings, and you don’t even need to search far and wide or travel to a different country to get your fill of your choice of cuisine.

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. The brainchild of a couple who met while on a trip in—of course—Vietnam, Saigon Corner also serves Vietnamese coffee for those seeking its distinct taste.

The Filipino vocabulary is full of colorful words, especially relating to food and eating. Takaw, dubbed as a Filipino eatery is a testament to this. They serve classic Pinoy dishes that are sure to boost your appetite as well as satisfy your cravings.

Open Kitchen 2F Rockwell Business Center, Sheridan, Mandaluyong City

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.
