Poblacion, is the trendiest food and nightlife district in Manila, frequented by locals and tourists alike — a visit to Manila isn’t complete without going here. The district is a maze-like jumble of rooftop bars, speakeasies, pubs and hole in the wall restaurants that are all just waiting to be explored. I’ll take you right down to the alleyways of Poblacion to sample mouthwatering dishes, produce and drinks from the islands of the Philippines and beyond. To end the tour, we’ll top it off with a nightcap and sweeping views of the Makati skyline from a roof deck bar.
I’m a Third-Culture Startup guy with experiences in Hospitality, E-Commerce and FinTech. Fuelled by an innate curiosity and love for food (and drinks!), I’ve been exploring the nooks and crannies of Manila for hidden gems ever since I got to the Philippines five years ago. I’m excited to take you on a personal tour based on a, “Tourist-turned-local” point of view and experience.
We will start the foodcrawl with fresh and light seafood in a Filipino-style alley bar. A short walk takes us to a hidden restaurant with a mind-blowing twist on Filipino food. Next, we’ll explore a foraging bar steeped in history and folklore. Finally, we’ll end the night with some of the best views of the city skyline at the very top of Poblacion.
