Liempo at JT’s Manukan Grille Price: P125 Yes, there's more to this resto than insasal. Spot.ph says every tender forkful of pork belly "has a rich, smoky-sweet goodness that will stay with you long after you’ve polished off your plate."
Tonkatsu at Tonkatsuya Price: P190 per order of a Tonkatsu Set "The pork is thin and lean, but packed with juiciness and flavor. The breading could be crispier, but for the price? We can’t really complain."
Hakaw at Wai Ying Price: P80 per order Spot.ph labels this as a Binondo favorite where the hakaw "arrives glistening, with the shrimp peeking through the translucent wrapper."
Fried Chicken at Tom Sawyer Price: P88 per piece of an Old-Fashioned Fried Chicken This was an 80s favourite that reopened in 2014. "The chicken is slightly fatty, very meaty, and ridiculously crunchy."
Waffles at Starbucks Price: P85 for a Caramel Belgian Waffle Yes, you read that right. Spot.ph says this waffle makes up in flavor what it lacks in size.
Lasagna Roll Ups at Banapple Price: P210 per order of the Lasagna Roll Ups We're happy Banapple is still make the list, this time with their Lasagna Roll Ups, which are filled with herbed cream cheese and Parmesan, "ensuring creamy goodness in every bite."
Chocolate Cake at Ms. Polly’s Specialty Cakes and Desserts Price: P95 per slice of the Classic Chocolate Cake We totally agree with Spot.ph on this entry. Ms. Polly's cake is "simple, homey, and just honest-to-goodness good." It has no nuts or caramel so chocolate purists will love it. Churros at Sancho Churreria Manila Price: P88 per order Northeners swear by this golden and crispy churros which you can find in Maginhawa.
Milkshake at Dairy Queen Price: P98 per order We, too, never get disappointed with the melted version of Dairy Queens famous soft-serve. Thick and creamy, it is "exactly what a good milkshake should be."
