Lunch breaks can be a puzzle game of “Saan tayo kakain?” for office workers.

With just an hour of breaktime, you don’t have the luxury to take your time in deciding where to eat.  Fast food is there, sure. But if you’re looking for somewhere where you can eat good –and at least healthier –food, offering various cuisines, a food hall is the way to go.

Good thing, food halls are popping up in the busiest districts in the Metro to solve every office worker’s lunchtime woes. In the busy streets of Mandaluyong, the newest food hall is serving meals for office workers on-the-go.

Open Kitchen got you covered satisfying usual food cravings with various cuisines offered. There will be 23 restaurants opening in the new food hall. Oji-San Yakitori bar serves sushi, bowls of donburi, katsu, and the all-time favorite Wagyu-cube skewers.  If you’re craving for Tex-Mex and Cali-Mex, Cartel got you. Zapata is your burger and nachos buddy. For spicy and exploding Thai flavors, go to The Golden Hat. Finish your lunch with Fruitas’ refreshing fruit shakes. Drop by to Molana Delicatessen for your pantry needs.
