To make sure your Valentine’s weekend this year is a safe, sweet, and enjoyable one, Rockwell has come up with restaurant recommendations — whether you’re spending the day with your significant other, a group of friends, or the whole family, pets included. After all, the fastest way to anyone’s heart is through the stomach.
Table for two? We’ve got you!
What better way to set the mood for an unforgettable Valentine experience than with a lobster-and-steak dinner date at Mamou Too? Their fresh Maine lobster and dry-aged T-Bone steak make an utterly flavorful, romantic meal. Keep things intimate and at the same time interesting, through conversations over wine or refreshing cocktails like their mimosas and frozen margaritas.
Add an extra dose of excitement to your love life and your taste buds by discovering The Test Kitchen’s degustation. Special tasting menus for lunch and dinner await you on Valentine’s Day.
Since international travel won’t happen anytime soon, why not have a taste of Asian Mediterranean flavors at Made Nice? Here’s an unexpected pairing — Vongole pasta with their best-selling octopus dish. Make the day even sweeter by topping it off with their scrumptious Tres Leches cake.
Spice things up with a Spanish date night at Rambla. Choice wines and modern tapas, together with a relaxed atmosphere, perfectly match the spirited vibe you desire.
For your friendly Valentine
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romantic love. Barcino, Nikkei, and Draft are popular for their laid back ambiance. Their exciting cuisines, thirst-quenching sangria mixes, Peruvian-Japanese inspired drinks, and ice-cold draft beers, are best consumed with friends.
You can’t go wrong with Italian on Valentine’s Day. Head on over to a mano for fresh hand-made pizza and pasta with your constants. But if you’re up for reimagined local specialties, sample Grace Park’s easy, yet tasty meal. This will definitely give you and your friends a delightful time.
The family that eats together…
We know everyone’s been missing those big family reunions, but you can still celebrate in small ways with your nearest and dearest, through Filipino comfort food. Treat your loved ones to favorite desserts like Via Mare’s bibingka, halo-halo, and puto bumbong after lunch!
Should you wish to stroll in the mall for some Valentine’s gifts afterwards, we recommend Cafe Mary Grace’s grilled ensaymada and hot chocolate for your post-shopping merienda. You can also grab a bite of Mesa’s must-try crispy leche flan, or sip into sweetness with Shi Lin’s iced Taiwan milk tea.
If you’d like to plan your day ahead, have some authentic teppanyaki as you’re in for a surprise on Valentine’s Day! The Book-A-Visit feature on The Rockwellist mobile app guarantees a sure seat at Teppan Okochi. This is also available for Power Plant Mall restaurants like The Grid, Din Tai Fung, Phat Pho, Manam, Ooma, 8 Cuts, Chili’s, Shi Lin, and Cafe Mediterranean. Download the app and book now before seats run out!
Now if you’re longing for one of the best ramens in the metro, Ippudo’s Shiromaru, Akamaru, and Karakamen have you covered.
To complete the Rockwell Valentine’s experience, enjoy musical performances by RJ Jimenez, Jino Labitigan, Dee Cruz, Anne Clerigo, Charm & Charl, Lance Busa, and the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra, from February 12 to 14, as Rockwell goes streetside at the Lopez Drive.
