Celebrating? These 16 restaurants in Mandaluyong can make your day special

Celebrations are made special with good food and family. Although it was once easy to just drop by your favorite restaurant on a special day, things aren’t that easy now. Yes, eating out is now allowed in some areas; but even so, not everyone feels comfortable going out just yet.

The solution? Deliveries. More and more restaurants are reopening their doors. If you’re near or within the Mandaluyong area, you can count on these restaurants for scrumptious food – best enjoyed right at home, of course.

16 Restaurants in Mandaluyong that Deliver

(in no particular order)

16. Panda Express (@pandaexpressph)


Panda Express 6

A casual Chinese-American restaurant hailing straight from America, Panda Express opened its first-ever branch in the Philippines – and in SM Megamall, no less. Although not authentic Chinese food, Panda Express offers its famous Orange Chicken, which you can pair with Chow Mein and Fried Rice. Other dishes include Beef and Broccoli, Kung Pao Chicken, and my favorite next to the Orange Chicken— their Asian Grilled Chicken.

15. Paradise Dynasty (@paradisedynastyph)



Xiao Long Bao, or soup dumplings, are tasty in their own right; but rainbow ones with different flavors? Now that’s something you don’t see everyday! These include truffle, cheese, and even a spicy Szechuan dumpling, just to name a few. You can even pair these with other luxurious yet affordable Chinese food. Paradise Dynasty’s Stir-fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce with Chinese crepes is also a must-try!

14. Din Tai Fung (@dintaifungph)



A Taiwanese restaurant known for its Pork Chop Fried Rice and Xiao Long Bao, Din Tai Fung is a great go-to choice for Chinese food. Just think— there’s Sweet and Sour Pork, Pork and Roasted Garlic Buns, and even some Salted Egg Yolk Squid to indulge in. Plus, you can pair it with some refreshing milk tea— Din Tai Fung offers that for delivery, too!

13. Wolfgang’s Steakhouse (@wolfgangssteakhouseph)

Whether you’re celebrating a milestone or a special occasion, it’s nice to treat your family to something fancy sometimes. When we’re talking fancy, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse comes to mind. Known for its USDA Prime Dry-Aged Steak, Wolfgang’s Porterhouse and Rib-Eye are easy crowd favorites. As for non-beef eaters like myself, the restaurant’s Shrimp Scampi is a good alternative that is both indulgent and tasty.

12. Gerry’s Grill (@gerrysrestaurant)

Filipino food is best enjoyed when shared, and Gerry’s Grill is proof of that. Gerry’s Sisig and Crispy Pata are definite must-haves that go well with rice and maybe a drink or two. The showstopper, though? Their Inihaw na Pusit. Just look at that glistening sheen and subtle char. It’s smokey, soft, and oh-so-yummy!

11. Lola Cafe (@lolacafe)



Offering Filipino food with a twist, Lola Cafe is a house-turned-restaurant that serves comfort food favorites with modern Filipino elements. Their bestsellers include Creamy Aligue Pasta, Bone Marrow Sisig, and Truffle Lengua. Make sure to get their Queso de Bola Cheesecake for dessert, too. It’s rich and creamy— a great way to end the meal!

10. Soban K-town Grill (@soban.ktown)



Missing samgyup and Korean food? Soban K-town has got you covered! Aside from offering meats and sides for a DIY barbecue experience at home; Soban also has Dosirak, or boxed meals, for quick and easy eating. What’s more, the restaurant offers a 10% discount when you order their boxed meals for takeout or online.

9. Putien (@putien.ph)



More Chinese food because yes, I like my fair share of Sweet and Sour Pork. Speaking of Sweet and Sour Pork, affordable Michelin-star restaurant Pu Tien offers one unlike any other. Instead of the usual pineapples, this restaurant uses lychee that’s more on the sweet side. Pu Tien’s Braised Pork Ribs and stir-fried Chili Clams are just as good, and you can get them for takeout or delivery in Bento boxes, too.

8. Manam (@manamph)



Who can forget the famous Sisig of Manam? Or their Watermelon Sinigang— one made with Beef Short Rib and Watermelon instead of the usual tamarind? Whether it’s Filipino comfort food you’re after or dishes that are perfect for sharing, Manam has got you covered. Don’t forget to get some garlic rice ready for these Pinoy favorites!

7. The Cafe Mediterranean (@thecafemed)



Whether you’re a vegetarian or just love hummus too much, The Cafe Mediterranean offers hummus bowls filled with your choice of toppings. Unlike other gritty variants, its hummus is smooth and creamy, making it a good choice. If you need your dose of meat, Cafe Med also offers char-grilled Souvlaki and Shish Taouk, a lemon and yogurt-infused dish that goes well with some fragrant Basmati rice.

6. Shanghai Saloon (@shanghaisaloonph)



An up-and-coming modern Chinese bistro that shows promise, Shanghai Saloon offers fancy Chinese fare in a creative way. Their Cereal Prawns, for example, are coated in crunchy cornflakes and come with a creamy sweet mayo sauce. It’s quirky, playful, and tasty all at the same time. Beyond that, they also offer classic Dim Sum dishes like Hakkaw and Siomai, along with Sweet and Sour Pork.

5. Bowl’d (@bowld.ph)



An Asian fusion restaurant that is both punny and tasty, Bowl’d serves rice bowls that are filled with your Asian favorites. I recommend their Nasi Lemanok, which comes with Chicken Karaage and Dilis, and their Pork o’Clock, a rice bowl topped with Sweet and Sour Pork and Chicken Karaage. If you’re a vegetarian, their Herbibowl comes with spicy Sriracha Tofu on a bed of rice.

4. Cocina Peruvia (@cocinaperuviaph)



Looking for something adventurous? Cocina Peruvia serves fusion Peruvian dishes— the kind that has complex flavors with some Filipino elements added in. Take their Adobo Peruvia, for example. It’s a tender pork belly in cream sauce. These come in Grab ‘n Go bento sets, which you can bring home or order for delivery right in the comfort of your home.

Now, back to more Mandaluyong restaurants that you can get food delivered from. These are good; trust me!

3. Mamou (@mymamou)



While most go to Mamou for their juicy and tender steaks, I go for Lorenzo’s Truffle Cream Pasta— a creamy pasta with subtle, earthy notes of truffle. Their Lamb Salpicao is also a delight, especially with their lightly toasted sweet bits of lamb paired with garlic rice and egg. Of course, Mamou’s dry-aged USDA Prime Grade is one showstopper you can’t miss, either!

2. Uma Uma Ramen (@umaumaph)



Are you a hopeless ramentic or are you just looking for ramen? Uma Uma is here for you. Just like a lot of ramen places that deliver, Uma Uma offers theirs in the form of DIY Ramen kits that you can heat up and assemble right at home. If you like things spicy like me, their Spicy Chasiu and Tantanmen are great choices. If not, their classic Uma Uma Ramen and Tonkotsu will do you nicely. What’s more, they’ve got package deals to make your delivery worthwhile!

1. Nikkei (@nikkeiph)



Bringing together the best of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine, Nikkei offers sushi and rice bowls that are real treats for adventurous foodies who still want a taste of something familiar. Their Saba Shiyoyaki, a simple Japanese classic, is one of my favorites. Their Lavish Aburi Roll— the kind that’s filled with avocado and shrimp rolled in sushi rice and finished off with some salmon and mango— is also a must-have. If you want a hearty rice bowl, the Pollo Saltado would be a good choice.

What’s your favorite restaurant in Mandaluyong?
