For summer-nostalgics, these dishes and desserts from our fave beach spots are in Metro Manila
If we can’t go to the beach anymore, then we’re bringing the beach to us—well, at least the food from there
Jul 14, 2020
It’s official, now that the -ber months and rainy seasons are drawing near, we’ve actually missed out on the usual summer escapades. No surfing sessions and swimming activities at the beach this year, and of course, we understand—there really shouldn’t be that much leisure and celebration when there’s a pandemic going on. However, we can’t deny that we’ve missed the usual beach fare and are pretty saddened by the fact that these local businesses aren’t earning as much anymore.
Luckily, some of them have gathered enough resources to bring their delicacies to the capital city. And while we’re excited to finally bring back some summer memories through these dishes and desserts, we’re also glad to be supporting these beachside eateries as they get back on track. Here’s where to order:
Missing Coco Mama and the beach? 🏝🥥🍨 We have great news for you! Coco Mama’s vegan-friendly, lactose-free, and…
The popular vegan-friendly, lactose-free coconut ice cream all the way from Boracay and La Union is now in Metro Manila. We swear, with all the heat (mentally and physically) here, this is the kind of dessert that can help us cool down and relax.

Do you still remember those after-surfing sessions with a hefty meal of fried chicken from La Union’s favorite fried chicken shack Sabong? Plus, they now have new flavors like the Makan Special—spiced coconut cream glazed fried chicken with pickled sitaw and red onions.
It’s Muffin Day
If you miss the calamansi muffins from Boracay’s Real Coffee, we’ve found the next best thing. This bakery based in Pasig is now selling its famed sweet and tangy calamansi muffin with lemon-sugar glaze.
For those who miss Siargao and are also in the mood for some pizza, Kermit Manila is delivering their classic Italian-style pizzas here in Metro Manila. If you’re going for an all-out meal, match those cheesy pizzas with their pasta.
The quintessential island living dessert—a bowl of healthy fruits and nuts paired with creamy ice cream. Makai Bowls from the popular Flotsam and Jetsam Hotel in La Union is now available in Manila, too.

Cold brew gained some extra attention over quarantine with all the hot weather and long work-from-home hours. If you need to stay awake, this cold brew from Boracay has come just in time. Plus, it comes with a good cause—if you buy six bottles, they’re donating six more to frontliners.
