AFN Recommends PH: Top 5 Eats in June

AFN Recommends PH: Top 5 Eats in June

All aboard the delicious ship!

One of the things to love about the Philippines is our countless spectacular bodies of water. This is why it’s no wonder that many restaurants here in Manila have incorporated this theme into their business one way or another and we totally love it! In the last few days of June (and the rest of the year), dive into the exceptional dining experience with these AFN top picks.

1. Manila Yacht Rentals & Events

Open your eyes to the beauty of Manila! Exploring the beautiful cityscape of the city while cruising in your own private yacht through Manila Bay has never been more accessible. While many have been attracted to Manila Yacht Rentals & Events because of their one-of-a-kind services, what many don’t know is that their food is also truly amazing.

Their docked dinner package (starts at PHP 2,500) features Rib Eye Steak that is made from high-quality ingredients that is seasoned to perfection with the guests’ taste and health in mind. Other dishes such as Italian Pesto Pasta, Herb Roasted Chicken, Smoked Ribs, and Pan Seared Salmon are also thoughtfully prepared, cooked, and served exquisitely.

If you want the full VIP treatment with reasonable rates, then this is the place to be.

2. Boathouse Cafe

Now that trips are getting postponed left and right, the Boathouse Cafe is here to offer that exciting experience of eating delicious dishes by the beach. Their menu is filled with classic Pinoy specialties and international favorites paired with refreshing beverages. They have rice meals, pastas, soups, salads, wraps, sandwiches, cakes, pastries, ice cream and more to cater whatever you are craving for.

Although you can order anything from their menu and be completely satisfied, we recommend that you do not miss out on their Japanese Pork Ramen (PHP 170), Parmigiana Vegetable (PHP 150), and Grilled Bangus Belly (PHP 230).

If you’re looking for a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, here’s the food spot that has everything for you.

3. Calle Preciousa

Calle Preciousa elevates the way we enjoy our usual dampa experience. With resort-like design of their indoor and alfresco setup -- complete with an artificial waterfall, Koi pond, and more. One step inside their restaurant and you will feel like you have been transported to the beautiful island without leaving the city. Their menu is composed of our usual seafood favorites, but what truly makes them standout is how fresh their ingredients are. Their Buttered Garlic Shrimp (starts at PHP 520), Baked Tahong (starts at PHP 375), and Grilled Salmon (PHP 415) are the crowd favorites for a delicious reason.

Pro Tip: You can use one of their private kubo with no extra charge. Just make sure to make a reservation ahead of time.

Alas Juicy has managed to gain a big following with only one item in their menu -- adobong tahong (PHP 240). It’s because it’s really that good. Available in three variants: Classic, Spicy, and Nagbabaga. Their specialties are delivered in glass jars that have a shelf life of up to two weeks when stored in the refrigerator. You can put it directly on hot rice or pasta for a quick and tasty meal or use it as an ingredient for more complex dishes.
