Review: Backyard Kitchen and Brew UPTown Center Katipunan

Different food chains are brewing left and right to different parts of Metro Manila. Backyard Kitchen and Brew at UPTown Center in Katipunan is one of the must try food chain. It’s located on Phase 2 with other restos. What I like about the place is design and interior or the place, it has a cool vibe and the interior is like from Backyard Salvage series (if your watching it, you know what I mean) where they used materials and re-create it to something new. I’m a fan of wood furnishing, I don’t know but I just love the homey feeling that it gives with the accentuated lightnings.

Review: Banapple

Banapple is one of our go to places for quick gatherings with friends and colleagues. It’s also our go to places for rewarding ourselves after a hard days work. We would always go back to Banapple for their big servings  of their food for a reasonable price, their mouth-watering cakes and pastries. The place has its own charm, their fun colors in their interiors and a white picket fence effect.

Review: Contis Katipunan

Contis is one of my go to places for food in Katipunan. I have been here a couple of times with family, friends and colleagues and each time I went here, there is always something new to try with their variety of main course meal to their cakes and pastries and no wonder why customers keep coming back to this place.

Contis is located on the busy street of Katipunan so parking is limited. The whole place has this relaxed and comfortable ambiance. And in several occasions, I have tried a couple of main course meals and every food is really worth every bite.

Price ranges 200+php to 300+php per head. It might be pricey but the serving is enough to make you feel full and satisfied and keep you coming back for more. Don’t forget to try their cakes as well since they are also known for their delicious cakes and pastries.
