In the crush of the Christmas rush, there almost isn’t any time to have your yearly holiday get-togethers with your friends. And setting up a dinner party at home isn’t an option! The solution: Choose a beautiful new restaurant near your house or place of work—you might even get some decorating tips over dinner!


Tiger Leaf 

Specializing in Southeast Asian cuisine, the new Tiger Leaf restaurant in the South will surprise you with its vibrant and richly detailed interiors that mix Indochine elements, crystal chandeliers, and botanical prints with European-style furniture in jewel-like colors.

Evia Lifestyle Center, Almanza Dos, Las Piñas, mobile 0945-329-6199

Another Story

With an exuberant menu in an equally exuberant restaurant interior, there will be much to talk about at Another Story. Every wall, table, countertop, and ceiling of the restaurant is decorated with typography (that tells a story), trellises, plants, mismatched chairs, and quirky accessories.

Little Flour Café

As the “little sister” of the popular Wildflour Café, Little Flour doesn’t disappoint with its all-day brunch menu of its yummy sisig and adobo rice bowls and pastries. But the star of this café—designed by architect Lara Barrios—is the chair “chandelier” on the ceiling, which is a conversation starter unto itself.

G/F World Plaza Bldg., 4th Ave. cor. 31st St., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, tel. (02) 777-7383



Owned by noted designers Ivy and Cynthia Almario, it isn’t any wonder that the Pasig branch of Relish has the same sophisticated European feel of their interior style. With the upholstered banquets, Chinoiserie murals, and framed artwork, you won’t need any additional décor if you hold a party here.

G/F Citadines Millennium Ortigas, 11 Ortigas Ave., Pasig City, tel. (02) 635-9583



Classic Confections' Baba Ibazeta-Benedicto’s menu of comfort food blends well with the cozy, mid-century-modern cool interiors (and exterior!) by Wilmer Lopez and his team. Dine on Mac n’ Cheese while sitting on Ambassador chairs and leather banquettes underneath retro lamps.

UP Town Center, Katipunan Ave., Diliman, Quezon City, tel. (02) 958-5713
