Can’t get enough of the yummy Filipino fare from Gerry’s? We’ve found seven more places where you can get your fill of both the exotic and the comforting this August. There’s pizza, Sisig, Tapa and a ton of other hidden gems for your gastronomic pleasure!
As you know, when it comes to Filipino food, this isn’t our first rodeo. In our initial foray, we sampled Gerry’s Restaurant and Bar where we pigged out on portion-heavy dishes with a ton of personality. With each bite, we were instantly transported by our taste buds to the various parts of the Philippines — from the sandy beaches of El Nido to the warm gritty streets of Manila. So, naturally, we couldn’t get enough!
In a bid for more tasty trips around their 7000 islands, we decided to sniff out more of the best Filipino nosh on our island — and here’s what we found.

Scheduled to open their doors at Lucky Plaza soon, the famed pizza parlour from the Philippines is about to make thin crusts a thing again. You can expect favourites like the Shakey’s Special, but meat lovers should prioritise the Angus Steakhouse Pizza for succulent chunks of meat paired with roasted onions and mushrooms — topped with crispy potato strings for extra carby decadence. We can’t wait!
Find the restaurant at Lucky Plaza Singapore.
8. Tapa King

Usually fried or grilled, Tapa is essentially meat that has been dried or cured with salt and spices. So expect nothing but flavour-packed mouthfuls with each bite at Tapa King’s. To ensure that the spotlight remains on the meat, the restaurant mostly serves the meat with a simple side of plain rice and egg.
Find the restaurant at the Asian Food Mall at Lucky Plaza Singapore.
