In this section, you can read about the places that we actually visit, maybe even on a regular basis. From the best-kept watering holes in Malate to the up, and coming pintxos bar in the south of Manila, let the writers of Coconuts Manila’s writers take you to the most happening spots, that often have a great ambiance in addition to awesome food. We write about tapas bars, speakeasies, farm-to-kitchen restaurants, hot dog joints, fattening food trucks… anything, really! Sometimes, we get to talk to the people behind the bar and inside the kitchen, too. Sometimes, we get media invitations (hey, it’s the part of the job!). Don’t worry, we’re a very transparent bunch. Before you go on your next food trip, make sure to check out Coconuts Manila’s hot spots first. You don’t want to miss the restaurants with the seal of approval of our writers and editors.
