Greenhills Promenade is a Foodie Paradise

More and more food brands and popular food outlets have opened at the Promenade to satisfy the cravings of certified foodies.

Ready to greet you in the New Year are the newest nooks and eating places in this “dinetertainment” enclave in the heart of Greenhills San Juan.

Let’s start with some major snacking. Takoyaki enthusiasts are sure to go for Kraken Takoyaki – gourmet takoyaki that uses only the freshest octopus and Japanese ingredients. Different takoyaki flavors made from Aonori Seaweed, Bonito Flakes (Katsuobushi), Octopus, Pickled Ginger, Tenkasu, Cabbage and Green Onion explode in a riot of flavors in the mouth, making these the best-tasting takoyaki ever. Find Kraken at the Promenade 1 Food Court.

Pinoy food lovers will be happy to know that Kuya J, the notable food place from Cebu that offers well-loved, home-cooked Filipino dishes with a distinct Kuya J twist, now occupies the ground floor of Promenade 3. It serves up its famous Kuya J Halo-Halo and forever favorites like Kare Kare, Beef Kaldereta, Bicol Express, Crispy Tadyang ang Humba. It also surprises with dishes like Adobong Manok sa Gata at Pinya, Kare Kareng Bagnet, and Crusted Prawns in Coco Wasabi Cheese, among others.

Choi Garden, one of the few Chinese restaurants that serves good, authentic Chinese exotic fare like crab, shrimp, lobster, fish, sea cucumber, scallop, sharks fin, finally has a roost at the Promenade as well, beefing up the Asian cuisine offerings of this food hub that already has Thai, Singaporean, Korean, Singaporean, Japanese, Vietnamese and Filipino restaurants in its fold.

Sweets enthusiasts and dessert lovers meanwhile have a festive reason to go to this part of Greenhills Shopping Center. Paper Moon Cake Boutique and Café now offers its heavenly creations to mall goers. Emy Wada, Tokyo’s Grand Dame of Specialty Cakes, has made the finest and best desserts in Tokyo – like its Original Mille Crepe – available to Manilans along with other French specialty cakes and pastries created with meticulous Japanese skill. Mille Crepe gets its name from the no less than 20 delicate, paper-thin handmade crepes layered with heavenly light pastry cream, topped with a golden, caramelized crust, but there’s lots more delicious concoctions to try. Paper Moon also has a menu of light, savory dishes and beverages.
