It’s been a while since we’ve enjoyed dining in beautiful restaurants. While it’s great to get back to our favorite restos after a year, it’s also the perfect opportunity to try out new places. If you’re looking for a new restaurant to try, complete with an amazing menu, gorgeous interior, and a relaxing ambiance, we’ve got a recommendation for you.
Limón Manila is a newly-opened restaurant in Manila City that offers a wide variety of Asian dishes that will surely excite your palate.
Having just opened in June this year, Limon had to face numerous lockdowns. But thanks to their must-try dishes, affordable prices, and delivery options, Limon still became one of the newest crowd-favorite restaurants in the area.
You can find traditional Filipino, Thai, Chinese, and Taiwanese dishes on their menu. Yes, it’s like traveling around Asia over lunch or dinner!
For appetizers, one of Limon’s bestsellers is the Dragon Ball. While these dragon balls can’t grant your wish, they can definitely satisfy your appetite and keep you wanting more.
It’s balls of mixed seafood wrapped in wontons and deep-fried. The seafood filling is light and tasty, and quite fluffy when it comes to the texture, so a contrasting crunch of the fried wontons adds extra excitement to each bite.
The Mango Seafood Rolls is also a must-try appetizer. The sweet mango bits mixed with seafood wrapped in rice paper offer a balanced blend of flavors. It’s just so good!
For mains, there are amazing choices from their seafood, beef, pork, and chicken dishes. The Cereal Prawns and the Salted Egg Shrimp are definitely must-tries if you love shrimp.
Their Spare Ribs Wasabi is a new twist on a pork classic. Don’t worry, it’s not extra spicy but it definitely offers a new mix of flavors that your tastebuds will enjoy.
If you’re looking for some classic Pinoy dishes, they’ve got amazing and delicious choices as well! The Sizzling Beef Sinigang is a new mouthwatering version of the soup-based dish we know and love.
Speaking of soups, you can also enjoy an extra hearty bowl of delicious Asian soups that would be perfect for the Ber months. Their Tom Yum is exquisite—we could not stop slurping it down and we finished it instantly.
They also have choices of bestselling Asian chicken dishes such as Mandarin Chicken, Orange Chicken, and Red Curry Chicken.
While their scrumptious menu is definitely enough reason to visit Limon, their refreshing and Instagrammable interior will make you come back again and again.
Limon is located inside Apogée Events + Lifestyle which is already a stylish building by itself, but stepping into the restaurant proper will make you feel like you’ve instantly been transported to a tropical hideaway.
There are massive trees all around, hanging bamboo lanterns, and beautiful rattan furniture. Limon offers such an elegant and stylish vibe with its interiors that it makes the food experience even more enjoyable.
If you love tropical spaces like this, you can also rent the whole restaurant for intimate events! You won’t even have to worry about decor because it already looks great as is.
They also deliver party platters of their bestselling dishes so you can enjoy their flavorful Asian dishes in the comforts of your home.
Limon Manila is positively one of the must-visit restaurants in Manila with their exceptional menu, amazing service, and exciting interiors. It’s worth a try when you’re in the area!
