To make sure your Valentine’s weekend is a safe, sweet and enjoyable one, Rockwell has come up with some restaurant recommendations, whether you’re spending the day with your significant other, a group of friends or the whole family.
Table for two?
What better way to set the mood for an unforgettable Valentine experience than with a lobster-and-steak dinner date at Mamou Too? Their fresh Maine lobster and dry-aged T-bone steak make an utterly flavorful, romantic meal.
Add an extra dose of excitement to your love life and your taste buds by discovering The Test Kitchen’s degustation. Special tasting menus for lunch and dinner await you on Valentine’s Day.
Why not have a taste of Asian Mediterranean flavors at Made Nice? Here’s an unexpected pairing — vongole pasta with their best-selling octopus dish. Make the day even sweeter by topping it off with their tres leches cake.
At Rambla, choice wines, modern tapas and fantastic paellas, together with a relaxed atmosphere, perfectly match the spirited vibe you desire.
For your friendly Valentine
Barcino, Nikkei and Draft are popular for their laid-back ambience. Their exciting cuisines, thirst-quenching sangria mixes, Peruvian-Japanese inspired drinks and ice-cold draft beers are best consumed with friends.
Head on over to a mano for fresh handmade pizza and pasta with your constants. But if you’re up for reimagined local specialties, sample Grace Park’s easy yet tasty meal.
The family that eats together…
Treat your loved ones to favorite desserts like Via Mare’s bibingka, halo-halo and puto bumbong after lunch!
Should you wish to stroll in the mall for some Valentine’s gifts afterwards, we recommend Cafe Mary Grace’s grilled ensaymada and hot chocolate for your post-shopping merienda. Or grab a bite of Mesa’s crispy leche flan and sip into sweetness with Shi Lin’s iced Taiwan milk tea.
If you’re one to plan ahead, have some authentic teppanyaki as you’re in for a surprise on Valentine’s Day! The BookA-Visit feature on The Rockwellist mobile app guarantees a sure seat at Teppan Okochi. This is also available for Power Plant Mall restaurants like The Grid, Din Tai Fung, Phat Pho, Manam, Ooma, 8 Cuts, Chili’s, Shi Lin and Cafe Mediterranean. Download the app and book before seats run out!
Longing for one of the best ramens in the metro? Ippudo’s Shiromaru, Akamaru and Karakamen have you covered!
To complete the Rockwell Valentine’s experience, enjoy musical performances by RJ Jimenez, Jino Labitigan, Dee Cruz, Anne Clerigo, Charm & Charl, Lance Busa and the ABS-CBN P h i l h a r m o n i c Orchestra from Feb. 12 to 14 as Rockwell goes streetside on Lopez Drive.
