Mckinley Hill and its hidden dining gem

When I ask a friend, “Have you been to McKinley Hill?” I often get the answer, “Uhm… no. How do you go there?” Haha. Well, there are vans near the MRT-Ayala Station (SM Makati Side) that costs P25 going to McKinley Hill and vice-versa.

McKinley Hill is in Taguig City; mostly known for its Megaworld condominiums, embassies, football field – Emperador Stadium, international schools and office buildings. But what most don’t know, is that the community also boasts a restaurant strip that serve an impressive array of foreign cuisine. These restaurants are really a must-try!

  1. Black Canyon Coffee

They serve not only coffee but also internationally known Thai cuisine such as Pad Thai. The first floor is a casual dining area but if you want to chill in a cozy café style ambiance, then the second floor is for you. My favorite drink to order is their Cha Thai Yen (Thai Iced Tea with milk). <3

  1. Lucky’s Burger and Bar

Formerly known as “The Burgery” it is one of the most affordable eats at posh Tuscany. The menu mostly consists of Western food favorites. I recommend Lucky’s Crispy Bacon and Egg. It’s like a Baconsilog with a twist!

  1. Terry’s: The Art of Food

If cooking is your hobby then you should visit this store! All of the good stuff from Spain are available here. Every time I visit this store, I’m wishing that I have unlimited money because I want to buy everything that they sell!  After seeing the ingredients, you would want to go home immediately and cook! 🙂

  1. Main Street

This place has more of Canadian comfort food and has a vintage feel. They have their signature cup of happiness ice cream which comes in eight flavors, (P95/cup)!  Great place to chill with your friends, may it be noon or night. Try their best-seller Poutine and Buttermilk Chicken (you might also want to order and add a glass of beer to that) Enjoy!

  1. Wursty-Wursty

Wursty-Wursty is worth the price and I must say, has a unique name. If you are in the McKinley area, you might want to check out this place. This is the best place to have some fun especially on a Friday night – grab some beer with your friends, jam with the band and eat a variety of finger food! You can buy a whole liter of draft beer that will last you the whole night for just P200. Not bad, right?

9. Marciano’s: Pizza, Pasta, Steak

An American–Italian inspired restaurant. I had a really good first impression of the place as it was well-styled and is sophisticated. For pizza lovers, try their West Side Four Seasons Pizza!
