8. Crispy sisig and watermelon sinigang from Manam
They don’t actually come as a combo, but you should do it this way anyway. If you hadn’t had Manam’s crispy sisig and watermelon sinigang, listen to me—YOU ARE MISSING OUT. One of the joys of being single is you don’t have to watch your weight. Heh. So go get that extra garlic rice!

7. Classic sushi and sashimi at Kai
I have good memories of pre-party dinners at Japanese restaurant Kai that it’s become a go-to place for good sushi and sashimi (the uni and salmon sashimi you guys!). I might have dined a couple of times here by myself too, for a quiet lunch and a warm bowl of miso soup. Cos yeah, I’m a strong, independent woman, y’all.
KAI's SPECIAL VALENTINES MENU. Feb 13 and 14. Choice of a 10 course degustacion or 5 course menu. Please call 7575209 or 09178523654 for inquiries.

6. The best roasted chicken out there from Señor Pollo
…according to me, but I’ve brought many a people to taste this chicken who will attest to my declaration. This juicy, roasted chicken with your choice of sides have become a staple pre-game meal around Poblacion, that it’s become almost synonymous to the idea of a good singles night about town.
