The Royal Piccadilly : A Taste of British Grub & Brews in Manila

You won’t see a lot of British restaurants When in Manila but when you do find the right one, it’s a sure winner. That’s what happened to me when I came across The Royal Piccadilly.


I’ve been to The Royal Piccadilly several times already and they have never disappointed me. (Except for that one time when they ran out of beef and gravy pie) What I love about this restaurant/cakery is that they make everything from scratch, food tastes good and the place is so relaxing. I heard they redesign it every once in awhile to “keep the inspiration flowing”

Who would’ve thought that tasty meat pies, burgers, chips and rainbow cakes would be found at the second floor of a gasoline station along Katipunan? 

The Royal Piccadilly ‘s grub mainly consist of British classics such as the fish and chips & bangers and mash, cooked for the Filipino liking. They also serve pasta, meat pies and bad-ass world cup burgers.

Yup, you read that right. WORLD CUP BURGERS!

They have different ingredients for each country, but three things are constant: freshly-made burger buns, all are served with chips and angus beef patty. If you try to check them all out, you’ll see just from the menu itself  how each burger is carefully concocted to fit the country. For example, their latest addition to their world cup burger menu is…

 “The Netherlands burger — The Royal Piccadilly ‘s Angus beef patty and bacon topped with caramelized apple, gouda cheese and tomatoes.” Didn’t that sound amazing? You can order this baby with chips and two Bavaria beers. 

The Royal Piccadilly , being a great place for celebrating  food and drinks, also serves imported beers such as the Bavaria beer from Holland. That was the beer we had that night and it goes well with everything–burgers, sausage rolls, fish and chips, live music, artsy place, another Bavaria beer, you name it!

 To celebrate the glorious taste of  Holland’s Bavaria beer The Royal Piccadilly made it available at a great deal, buy one take one!

The Royal Piccadilly  also holds events such as this acoustic night last Saturday. These events don’t come often, so make sure you check out their pages regularly. They also host arts and crafts events, tea time with bloggers, calligraphy classes and intimate happenings such as baptisms and parties.

I didn’t catch the name of the duo but according to my singer friend, his voice was like Nyoy Volante’s but huskier. They sang to us the whole night. It was lovely. Especially with burgers and beers.
