There are lots of restaurants around Makati, but there will never be enough when you dine out almost every night after work. If you’re looking for somewhere unusual and hidden, then you better be at Poblacion. We mapped out the best of Poblacion in Makati and listed some of the hole-in-the-wall restaurants you can make your new go-to after-work hangout spot.
If you love breakfast but not a morning person, Bean & Yolk is just the right spot for you. A newly opened concept cafe, Bean & Yolk serves all our comfort breakfast food. From toasts to burgers and coffee, B&Y is sure to comfort you through and through.
There’s nothing more comforting next to a breakfast entree like a good plate of pasta and pizza. Situated at the heart of Poblacion in Polaris Street, La Dolce Vita serves honest to goodness pizza freshly baked from a brick oven. Delizioso!
A community cafe that sits quietly along the busy street of Poblacion, Commune serves artisanal coffee, which you could perfectly pair up with a plate of pasta or sandwich. Also, get your creative juices flowing in here because Commune regularly turns its space into an art gallery, workshop venue, and music haven.
El Chupacabra is one of those places wherein you can just simply get loose. With a cheap beer in one hand and a taco in the other, diners are sure to have a good time here exchanging countless stories all night long.
Tambai Yakitori is a tiny, outdoor dining place wherein you could just enjoy a few skewered favorites while literally make another popular break time among Pinoys along the busy street of Makati. It used to be a sari-sari store but is now turned into your friendly yakitori snack house in the neighborhood.
A hip, hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves affordable latin american food, Senor Pollo soaks in the familiar street food vibe of its sister El Chupacabra. With its come-as-you-are attitude and decent food and drinks choices, Senor Pollo is the place to stop by for a while instead of braving the Makati traffic.
The Filling Station does a good job of transporting you back to the 50s with all sorts of memorabilia from the past, particularly post-war period, filling the place real good. Experience classic American breakfast and creamy milk shakes here just like the old times any time of the day!
For honest to goodness, no-fuss steak, try Salt at Fermina Street. The laidback hole-in-the-wall restaurant serves juicy and tasty steak at a very affordable price, which make it a favorite spot for after-office catching up sessions. Salt promises its customers their signature steak that is big on serving, satisfying, and at P190, will definitely give you your money’s worth.
Fig is the place to be if you want to impress a girl (or a boy) with your knowledge when it comes to the Makati food scene. So play dress up and straighten a little because Fig is way more fancier than most restaurants in Hipsterville, Makati that serves Mediterranean-inspired meals.
So the next time you feel like you don’t know where to eat, head straight to one of these restaurants for a dining experience that is unique only to Poblacion, Makati.
