Dishes Every Visitor Should Try in Manila – Yum yum all the way!

The Philippines is popular for amazingly bizarre food like pig’s head and duck’s embryo, which of course even if it sounds odd, looks and tastes amazing on a plate! However, there are a few unconventional foods that belong to the Filipino food culture as well.

If you happen to be visiting the Philippines in summer, you’ll come across small street carts selling all sorts of food. Halo-halo is one of these enticing treats. With all sorts of toppings like candied fruits, coconut gel, red beans, purple yam, flan and velvety ice cream. Simply heavenly on a sunny day!

Buko Pie

This aromatically delicious pie one that cannot be missed when it comes to local dishes. The best part of the pie? Its everything from the crusty exterior to the soft, fluffy custard filling inside. Perfect for a small evening snack with a warm cup of tea.


Ingredients used for this are usually always fresh off the day’s catch. The item includes fresh fish, coconut vinegar, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, chillies and citrus. Kinilaw may vary from region to region, some may even serve it with some delicious coconut cream. Don’t forget to try a bit of it from hotel restaurants like those at Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila.

This is indeed the ultimate savoury dish to taste when in Manila. The best hotels in Ortigas Pasig are sure to have this on their menu. So, try this dish oozing with flavours of daikon, Chinese cabbage, eggplant, annatto and peanut sauce served with rice and shrimp paste.
