With how terrible the traffic nowadays, a nearby mall is fundamental. Luckily, there’s a newly-built mall in the south called Madison Galeries.
One thing I love about living in the south is the diversity of commercial establishments in the area. I love the black & white concept. It brings out the elegance and accommodating vibe of this place.
Madison Galeries is another enticing lifestyle mall that opened last September 13. It is strategically located at Alabang Hills, Muntinlupa City, near South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) Interchange.
Madison Galeries is owned by Mr. Joel Rustia. According to him, he wanted to do an upscale type of mall, which is not far from the neighborhood area.
Mr. Rustia further stated that Madison Galeries a miniature version of a complete mall with banks (BDO), supermarket/grocery (Robinsons Supermarket), fitness gym (Elorde), restaurants, and soon, a pharmacy.
Speaking of restaurants, here are my 5 recommended restaurants (in no particular order) to try at Madison Galeries.
1. DIY Poke
Located on the 2nd floor of Madison Galeries, DIY Poke is a Hawaiian themed quick service type of restaurant that offers on the go poke bowls.
A combination of raw fish and chips. As described, their unique Cherry Blossom Bowl combo will surely tickle your taste buds.
From their bestsellers to their healthy bowls to their Do-it-yourself bowls, DIY Poke (POH-key) pertains to a raw fish salad.
2. Crostatina Patisserie and Cafe
Crostatina is your typical neighborhood cafe that serves savory and sweet dishes to please your sweet tooth.
This is their smoked Salmon salad with poached egg and special vinaigrette.
They use quality and fresh ingredients plus an ambiance enough to induce relaxation and familiarity at the same time.
Bitter-sweet, smooth and creamy, chocolate tarts!
3. Llucia Churreria (Loo-si-ya)
This is a dessert joint that will definitely make your love for churros extra sweeter.
Soft serve with churros and classic churros!
Located on the 2nd floor of Madison Galeries, Llucia Churreria offers classic sugar-sprinkled churros with warm choco dip, as well as their own churros soft-serve ice cream with choco-caramel sauce.
Churros is one of the up and coming most loved desserts nowadays, and for sure Llucia Churreria makes one of the best in the country.
4. Manila’s Best Coffee
We are becoming a coffee-centric nation. It clearly shows how Filipinos are appreciative of a good cup of coffee.
They also offer staple delicacies like “palitaw” (or from litaw, the Tagalog word for “float” or “rise”) It is a small, flat, sweet rice cake eaten in the Philippines. They are made from washed, soaked, and ground malagkit (sticky rice).
This bread shop/cafe is a must-visit at Madison Galeries.
Aside from their delectable pastries, their coffee is perfect, too! Furthermore, their staff exhibits great customer service.
I recommend trying their macarons, cookies, and custard bread! OMG, now I am craving! Luckily, Madison is just around the area!
Be the first one to try these restos and tell your friends about them. Madison Galeries not only offers accessible entertainment for you and your family, but they also house some of the most gastronomically satisfying joints in the South.
So, if you’re always on the lookout for unique gastronomical experiences, swing by my neck of the woods!
