From palabok, a noodle dish to halo-halo, a popular summer dessert, make sure you try the delectable Filipino street food which is economical, scrumptious and the best way to experience the local culture. If you don't have budget constraints and are not too keen on experimenting with Filipino food, try Giuseppe Pizzeria and Sicilian Roast for an authentic Italian meal. Sunset Grill Authentic Mexican Food and L’ Elephant Bleu are equally amazing restaurants offering Mexican and French dishes, respectively.
