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?

If you’re after some Filipino cuisine, then go here. They serve some of the best and classic Filipino favorites – fresh lumpiang ubod, sizzling bangus, etc. Don’t forget to leave some space for dessert because they also serve homemade ice cream and halu-halo!

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!
