North Kids, These Are All The Food Items You Can Only Find In Alabang
You can get them delivered!
We get that a lot of people from the North can get clueless when it comes to deciding where to eat in Alabang. It's true that there are many options to choose from, but if you rarely visit the area, you might as well try food items and dishes from cafes and restaurants that only have one existing branch inside the Metro.
But given the current quarantine, most restaurants are non-operational or have unfortunately closed down, while others are continuously thriving by making their dishes available for delivery. So, if you want a taste of what Alabang has to offer, here's a list of food establishments you can support:
1 Bean and Yolk: Vegan Pizza
Yes, this is the same Bean and Yolk that was previously located in Poblacion, Makati but has then closed down and moved to Westgate Center. This restaurant offers hearty and healthy meals, like garlic and mushroom vegan pizza, tapa bowl, and oatmeal champorado, which you can pair with their bottled (delivery-friendly!) beverages.
2 Black Pig: Black Pig Burger
This resto-bar located at Commerce Center is heaven for people who love the sinfully delicious pork! The menu includes a Black Pig Burger made with rib-eye, a Beef Shank Lasagna that highlights a braised bone-in beef shank, US Angus Prime Rib-Eye, and US Angus Choice Striploin.
3 Bungalow Cafe & Bakery: Bombolini Doughnuts, Chocolate Marshmallows
If anything, this relatively new cafe at Molito Lifestyle Center has an awesome selection of desserts! While they've got drool-worthy cakes, bombolini doughnuts, artisanal cookies, and golden brown croissants, they also offer unique items like Chocolate Marshmallows and Ube Leche Flan pandesal.
To place your pre-order, you can check their official website. Once payment is confirmed, you can book a driver to pick up your order on the scheduled date.
4 Da Gianni Cucina Italia: Pasta Dishes, Tiramisu
If you're in the mood for homey Italian food, Da Gianni Cucina Italia has a great pizza and pasta selection. Their best-sellers are the Truffle Pappardelle, Ragu with Meatballs, Spaghetti Shrimps and Scallops, Quattro Formaggi pizza, and the Carnevale pizza. You can end it on a sweet note with their delicious tiramisu.
5 Exchange Alley: Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Coffee Beans
This cafe located at Molito Lifestyle Center doesn't just serve good coffee, they also have good food, too. Anyone who frequents this place knows that the grilled cheese sandwich with the complimentary tangy tomato sauce and potato chips is a must-try for any EACH (short for Exchange Alley) newbie.
To place an order, you can send a message to Exchange Alley on Instagram or contact (0995) 964-1272. Once your order is confirmed, you can book a driver to pick up your order and deliver it to your doorstep.
