All Filipinos love the local fare — and there’s no one else who can cook our fave traditional Filipino dishes better than our mums. Still, there are days that you want to try out something different, but not completely so. Luckily, more and more places are now pushing the boundaries of Filipino cuisine, serving dishes bordering between familiarity and newness. If you’re in the mood to try the local dishes with a twist, dine at these Filipino fusion restaurants in Manila. A bite into one of their signatures will surely bring your taste buds for a joyride.
Manam Comfort Filipino
In any of the branches of Manam Comfort Filipino, you’ll experience the comfort of home and modernity combined through its homey interiors and unique offerings. While they serve the traditional fare, the restaurant is not afraid to craft their own spin to the beloved dishes. Their menu is divided into two: the “Classics” and the “Twists”, giving all the chance to taste both old and new. Most Pinoy dishes are usually cooked to be shared between groups, but Manam Comfort Filipino makes it possible for a solo diner to finish their favourites through their sized servings. A must-try is their Sinigang na Beef Short Rib and Watermelon that gives the local sour stew a tinge of fruity sweetness like no other.
