Restaurants in Manila

Manila's cuisine is a blend of Malay, Chinese and Spanish influences; food stalls in Pasay offer roast suckling pig, Chinatown serves up dim sum, and tapas is on offer at Tapella in Makati. The sophisticated restaurants of Ermita and Malate districts cook up international flavours, with upmarket eateries clustered around cosmopolitan Remedios Circle. Restaurant staff expect a small tip even if service is included in the bill. Opening hours are around 12pm-2.30pm and 7pm-11pm daily.
