Fortunately the month of Ramadan happened recently, giving us more free time, and with it came an invitation for me and my family to visit Little Manila for dinner.
On the day of our visit (a Sunday), we arrived just a few minutes after 7pm and were welcomed by Ken Peralta, the Brand Manager. He walked us through the restaurant and its different outlets, explaining a bit of history about each, before leaving us to order what we wanted and simply take in the experience.
As we looked around, it was hard not to notice the vibrant and colorful atmosphere. Everywhere you looked, you could see national symbols of the Philippines, scenes that either make Pinoys miss their country even more or make them feel like they were back home.
Since Little Manila has practically everything for a full course meal, that’s exactly what we had.
For appetizers, we enjoyed the Mixed Street Food from Kwekie Bites that tasted pretty much like the ones we would buy from Manong selling them at the kanto (without the pollution, of course ☺). Whatever your taste, there was a dip for you. And each (whether alone or mixed) complemented the street food items perfectly.

It's a good thing we didn't listen to the negative feedback by our friends about Little Manila and opted to judge it ourselves, otherwise we would have missed out on sinking our teeth in delicious food from our favourite outlets.
So would I recommend it? Definitely! Hubby and I are actually planning when to visit again. But this time, we'll be going with our friends so that we can try the Boodle Fight from Jay-J's ☺
