Top 10 Most Loved Restaurants in Pasay for April 2015

Four buffet restaurants made it to our list this month. Can you guess which ones those are?

We got full just by looking at this list. For the few eat-all-you-can and buffet restaurants on the list, Booky users in Pasay still had room for burgers, pancakes, and ramen. Keep reading on to find out which restaurants are new to the list, and which one jumped from last month’s number 5 to this month’s 1.

10. The Burger Lab – Two E-com Center

The Burger Lab is a casual and modern build-your-own ‘burgery’ that allows customers to not just point out , but they actually let them assemble their own burgers. Choose from a wide selection of buns, patties, toppings and sauces, as well as how you want it cooked. It’s for a fun and interactive space for children, family and friends. It’s not for people who don’t like queuing for orders. We recommend you assemble your own fun burgers. Our insider tip is non-burger loving foodies need not worry because they also serve a number of pastas, salads, finger foods and desserts. P.S. They open at 2PM and are closed on Sundays.

Buffalo Wings ‘N Things is an American style fast food diner that is home to authentic buffalo wings, as well as other favorites such as burgers, hotdogs and nachos. It uses high quality ingredients in making their signature recipes and sauces that takes you back to Buffalo, New York. It’s for the little ones or for casual night outs with friends. It’s not for people looking for steaks or ribs. We recommend the Triple Sampler and the Chilli & Cheese Nachos. Our insider tip is they don’t serve plain rice. P.S. Margarita Wednesdays get you two glasses for only P99.

8. Charaptor BBQ – SM by the Bay

Charaptor was a quiet player in the San Antonio Village in Makati, only known to nearby residents and chanced passersby, but with its soon to open branch in SM by the Bay, more will surely be caught by this new dining experience. Charaptor BBQ is a casual and affordable charcoal barbecue buffet featuring various char-grilled juicy meat, street food, fresh seafood and vegetables; a number of sauces and unlimited drinks are also included. It’s for people with big appetite for grilled foods. It’s not for health conscious people. We recommend you go for their lunch and weekday dinners for a cheaper rate. Our insider tip is each table can only accommodate 4 or 5 people.

6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Tue - Sun:
10:00 am - 2:00 pm

7. IHOP Restaurant – Mall of Asia

IHOP (which is acronym for International House of Pancakes) is a pancake house serving their signature fluffy buttermilk pancakes, as well as other American breakfast favorites and more, all day, everyday. It’s for people who love classic and over the top pancakes. It’s not for people who prefer Filipino-style breakfast. We recommend the Pick-A-Pancake Combo, Pot Roast Melt and Split Decision Breakfast. Our insider tip is if you’re a big coffee drinker, order the ‘never empty coffee pot’.

6. Vikings Luxury Buffet – SM by the Bay

Vikings Luxury Buffet have redefined the buffet service industry; what was once mostly available in hotels catering to tourists and the well heeled has now been made available to everyone. It’s for families and groups who are looking to celebrate special occasions affordably. Customers are loving their avocado ice cream. It’s not for people who prefer the ambiance of a hotel buffet. Our insider tip is to visit on your birthday month for a free meal. P.S. Don’t forget to bring a valid ID.

5. Sarsa Kitchen + Bar – Mall of Asia

Sarsa Kitchen + Bar (‘sarsa’ meaning sauce in English) was created on the premise that Filipinos love eating food with accompanying sauces or condiments. Celebrity chef JP Anglo, who is from Bacolod, has successfully housed the best of traditional Filipino and Negrense (from Negros) dishes into one kitchen. This is their 2nd branch after the Fort branch. It’s for people who don’t mind a mix of flavorful sauces on their plates.  It’s not for people who are on a ‘no-rice’ diet. We recommend the Sizzling Kansi, Inasal na Isaw and Ginamos Rice. Our insider tip for vegans, we read that their vegetable dishes are cooked in shrimp broth, so confirm orders with the staff/manager first.

It’s for foodies looking for a unique hotpot experience in a grand buffet style setting. It’s not for people who easily gets full. We recommend you visit on your birthday to dine for free, but you must bring a friend. Our insider tip is the VIP rooms give each customer a personal hotpot to cook with.

3. Tim Ho Wan – Mall of Asia

Tim Ho Wan was probably one of the most anticipated franchises that’s opened in Manila this year. For years, it has been everyone’s go-to-dimsum when visiting Hong Kong; after all it is the cheapest One Michelin star restaurant in the world. It’s foreveryone who loves good and fairly affordable dimsum and more. It’s not for people who hate long lines. Their crowd stealer is definitely the Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, we also recommend their Wasabi Salad Prawn Dumpling and Steamed Spinach Dumpling with Shrimp.

Ramen Nagi serves Butao (‘Buta’ meaning pork and ‘O’ meaning king), the rich signature tonkotsu broth used in every bowl they serve. It’s for ramen lovers who enjoy creating and customizing their own bowls. It’s not for loyal fans of Shoyu ramens. We recommend the original Butao King and Black King.
