Coconuts Manila Food & Drink

Restaurants are opening left and right; the best chefs have reached rock star status; and diners are willing to empty their wallets just to try the latest food trends —without a doubt, Manila’s F&B industry is thriving! Coconuts Manila is here to report on the most gastronomical destinations you’ve got to check out (or avoid). From craft beer bars to the cutest cafes, we’ll let you in on some of Manila’s best kept secret spots. Where to take your balikbayan guests for dinner? Where to get the best homemade dessert? Where to enjoy the crispiest lechon skin? Coconuts Manila regularly publishes food guides that can help you eat your way around the Metro. We’ve also traveled in different parts of the Philippines in search of the best culinary gems that the country has to offer (Bulalo from Iloilo, anyone?). Coconuts Manila writers are always interested in eating and learning about good grub. There’s always space in our tummies for sinigang and adobo, for cinnamon rolls and ice cream cakes. We try to keep up with the latest food trends, from the most affordable street food vendors to the finest 5-star dining restaurants. Over the years, Coconuts Manila has become known for a series of videos called Carinderia Crawl, where we visit the most interesting eateries in the Metro. We also have regular food columns like the Coconuts Hot Spot and the Critic’s Table. Watch this space, and we’ll serve you all the food and drink stories you can handle.
