Whether it’s breakfast with friends, a family lunch, or a dinner date, it can be difficult to decide which Alabang restaurants are the best. But don’t worry—we’ve done the hard work. We’ve selected the yummiest places to eat in Alabang, just for you! Here are our top picks based on our dining experience and recommendations from residents.
Bungalow Café is where you’ll often find young Alabangers catching up with friends. With Bungalow’s on-trend interiors, tempting dishes, and laidback vibe, it’s not difficult to see why. Grabbing a table even during a pandemic can be challenging. But you’ll never leave this café and restaurant without bringing home pastries. Their Davao brownies, homemade s’mores, and savory hand pies are among our favorites.
Bungalow Café is at Molito Lifestyle Center, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila. The café and restaurant is open Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. To inquire, call +63 2 8282 4546 or visit their website at bungalow.cafe.
Caviar is a serene, intimate space where you can relax, drink good wine, and eat some of the finest food around. This modern European restaurant and bar is luxurious and sophisticated with a relaxed ambiance that only Alabang can offer. For an extravagant experience, sample the five- or six-course degustation menu. With rich flavors such as seared scallops, mushroom cappuccino, salmon carpaccio, and Wagyu steak, you can’t go wrong.
Caviar is at Westgate Center, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila.

Metro Manila hosts many Italian restaurants, but it’s hard to come by truly authentic fare. Da Gianni and their family recipes prove otherwise. The food here is unabashedly Italian with a home-cooked touch. Can’t decide on what to order? Try the Antipasto Misto platter. For pizza or pasta, we recommend Prosciutto and Arugula or Vongole. If you want a main dish, ask for the signature Osso Bucco. Finally, cap off your meal with a Lemon Sorbet. Yum.
Da Gianni Manila is at LG/F Westgate Hub, Westgate Center, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila. The Italian restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. For reservations, call +63 917 167 8350 or +63 908 815 3856, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The rainy weather these past few weeks has us craving for a hot bowl of ramen. Ramen Yushoken, or Yushoken as the locals call it, is our top pick. Their ramen is tonkotsu in its purest form, a no-frills pork bone broth simmered for 14 hours. Before the pandemic struck, Yushoken would have long queues of diners waiting to try their three types of ramen. But if you want your ramen fix sooner rather than later, sister restaurant Mendokoro Ramenba is only a few steps away.
Ramen Yushoken Alabang is at Molito Lifestyle Center, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila. The ramen restaurant is open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. For inquiries, give them a call at +63 2 8808 7424 or visit their corporate website at nipponhasha.com.
Restaurants specializing in sushi are a rare find. If you’re a bona fide sushi lover, you know that some of the most innovative flavors are found in Sushi Ninja. This place to eat serves both an array of traditional and modern creations. We suggest giving the decadent Okinawa Toshi, with torched salmon and cream cheese with truffle oil, a try.
Sushi Ninja is at The Serenity Place, Westgate Center, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila. The sushi restaurant is open Monday to Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. To reserve a table, call +63 2 8556 7706 or send a message to email@example.com.
