Have you ever wanted some delicious Asian food on the go–a good serving of tonkatsu or sukiyaki while on a bus or while cramming your latest deadline in the office? Boxes Asian Kitchen has you covered!
Having opened only last August 8, 2017, in VA Rufino St, Legaspi Village, Makati, Boxes Asian Kitchen is a great place to get some well-made Asian comfort food. Its owner, Mary Lu, says that Boxes offers “comfort and convenience at an affordable price,” and it more than lives up to that promise.
Because of its convenient location, people working in Makati can grab and go their favorite meals. Boxes Asian Kitchen also delivers within the Legaspi Village area! Serving time is quick too–you can enjoy a serving in less than 5 minutes.
Their handy packaging is perfect for munching on rice meals in the confines of a moving vehicle or in a messy office desk. Who says rice meals have to be messy, right?
Delicious Everyday Asian Comfort Food
Their bestseller, the Dalandan Chicken, is an unconventional but undoubtedly Filipino take on your classic fruit-flavored chicken. It’s not your ordinary Orange Chicken or Lemon Chicken, but the familiar sweet and sour, zesty citrus taste is sure to tickle your taste buds.
A Sweet Chili Shrimp box is a satisfying slice of the sea to end a long and stressful day, while the Pork Tonkatsu delivers on the solid, meaty goodness that every tonkatsu dish requires.
If you have time to slow down and dine in, Boxes Asian Kitchen also offers a cozy ambiance and a very friendly staff.
Only a few restaurants in Makati would match the price that Boxes Asian Kitchen offers!
A hearty, delicious meal (like those in the photo above) would only cost you 145-175 pesos.
We like how the food in Boxes Asian Kitchen offers the convenience of takeouts and delivery, but the quality of the food doesn’t suffer. They can also cater to whatever you need at the moment: a quick meal alone in the office or in transit, or meals delivered straight to your office.
If you are craving an Asian meal that is delicious, affordable, and fast, then Boxes Asian Kitchen is the place for you! You can call 892-77-01 whenever you’re in the Legaspi Village area.
