The lights are up and the holiday shoppers are out and about. The traffic remains horrendous and it’s almost impossible to hail a cab. It can be tempting to just stay home and skip all the festivities, but Eatigo is here to save your holiday and make sure that when you do go out, the wee bit of hassle is worth it! Here are their top picks for your Christmas hangout, coupled with top-notch discounts, too.
For a welcome respite from Makati’s hustle and bustle, find your way to Concepto over at Poblacion. The quaint yet comfy place is known for their varied selection of drinks and bar chows, including the Shanghai Cheese sticks and signature pitchers.
Ladies’ night? Empire Bar at Venice Grand Canal Mall surely won’t disappoint. Enjoy a round of good cocktails with a hearty serving of paella best paired with a nice view of the grand canal. You can catch live bands performing here, too.
Sentro 1771 at Uptown Mall is also on the list, particularly because of their house specialty Sinigang na Corned Beef. The corned beef short plate and beef shanks in tamarind broth mixed with native vegetables is too good not to tell or share with your circle. They also craft their own cocktails with local ingredients like Buko Pandan, Sampalok, and even Tanglad.
For late night shenanigans, Borough is your best bet. They serve New York-style comfort food in a homey setting until 2am, so there’s no need to rush. Let both the conversation and the drinks flow.
With a bar list that’s almost as vast as the food menu, it’s no wonder Flatiron 1771 remains to be one of the top choices for gatherings—holiday or not. The pizzas are always good, and the same goes for their pasta offerings. As for the juice, they have everything—from wine to rosé, beer to cocktails, spritzers to gin—the place is a win-win for everyone.
Gather around to Vanderlust Bistro, millennial titas. This sweet little hole-in-the-wall makes the most decadent pastries, but they also serve savory food as well. Do yourself a favor and order the churros, they’re heavenly.
Buffet selections are always a hit during the holidays, and there’s something for everyone at Café Belmont at The Belmont Hotel & Resort. The posh ambiance makes for a relaxing experience, coupled with ace international dishes that everyone will surely love.
The best part is that all these restaurants are readily available on Eatigo. Just download the app, sign up, and start browsing through. Ready, set, and book your next holiday party with joyous discounts!
