Consuming food has turned into, from an essential human activity, a form of entertainment to Filipinos, a unique experience– one that should not only satisfy one’s sense of taste but also overwhelm the other senses. That’s why themed restaurants and gastro pubs rose in our metros to fill in our craving tummies. San Juan and New Manila are no exception. These districts are home to the most mouthwatering, delectable, and unique foods one can experience.

 

Check out if you’ve tried any of the restaurants from this bucket list we’ve made for you!

  1. Time for an ice cream dessert at Farmacy.

Farmacy New Manila San Juan

Another brand of the Wildflour group, Farmacy is a soda fountain and ice cream shop that is adorned by a long dessert bar counter inside the store. It’s a throwback to the time when people thought that carbonated water was an actual medicine and when soda captured the hearts of the mass. Its main selection includes a wide variety of ice cream flavors and dessert concoctions of milkshakes and sundaes.

The Farmacy store has a kiddie vibe but it welcomes the kid and the kid-at-heart alike. People say that it’s a great after-dinner hang out place and the desserts are worth the extra calories.

  1. Chill out at the day’s end at District 8.

    Co-owned by stars Daniel Padilla, Vice Ganda, and James Yap, District 8 Gastropub is a spacious industrial feel bar walled by painted bricks and warmed by the perfect chill vibes. There is also an “Owner’s Lounge,” which is a hidden section behind a sliding door near the store’s kitchen.

The name “District 8”  was derived from the idea that there were eight major partners in this venture. This gastropub houses specialty cocktails which are named after a partner. They got Kidlat for Paul Artadi, Big Game for James Yap, Vice Charmer for Vice Ganda, Zam for Francis Zamora, Pinoy Sakuragi for Marc Pingris, The Butcher for Kel Zaguirre, Amo for Charlton Yu, and Supremo for Daniel Padilla. Have some drinks before you retire to bed.
