2) Restaurants

Theirs a variety of restaurants which cover all kinds of food including Japanese, Italian, Indian, Cantonese, American franchises like Mc Donnalds, Mexican ect.

Hears some links to restaurants you wont find in the west or at least I haven’t seen in the U.K where I live.


I can recommend Inasal for basic foods like fish and rice for around 100 peso (£1.42 or $2.27US Dollars) and Gerry’s grill for a dine in experience wich should cost around 1,500 peso(£21.42 or $34 US Dollars. My recommendations are based on personal experience and may not be to everyone’s taste.

You will also find nearly all the restaurants you have in the west like:

McDonald’s, KFC, Subways ect (if you have any questions about any specific type of food please contact me and I will answer your questions)


3)Buffets at hotels ect.

This is the way I like to eat and im going to use just one restaurant to illustrate just how much variety you can find in one place.

Vikings in manila is one of the best places to eat from between 688peso to 888peso(£9.82 to £12.86 or $15.63 to $20.18 US Dollars) you can eat all you want


This place has nearly every kind of food you can think of. if you would like to know more please follow the link bellow.


Well I hope this post was helpful for all of you. I understand there are many foods I have not listed and some people might think I should list all of them but, my intention is to start a debate so people can talk and ask me specific questions in relation to there needs and then I can help them. If you feel there should be more added to any of my posts or that I have missed something then please email me a full post on food or anything else and I will post it hear and credit you. email me at
