3 Restaurants in Paranaque You Should Try

Since I transferred to Paranaque City three years ago, I always find myself browsing through reviews of restaurants so I could decide where to bring brokers and guests for a good meal.

Inside BF Homes along the famous Aguirre Street, it is quite difficult to go there without having an initial research. When you get inside, you find yourself having a very difficult time choosing the restaurant because there are dozens of choices there.

Here are three of the best restaurants in Paranaque that you should try!

1. The Urban Farm
President Avenue, BF Homes Subdivision 
Best for Small Group Lunch, Casual Meet Ups
Telephone: (02) 823- 8495

I usually hold small lunch meetings at The Urban Farm. The last time I was there, I brought our group of brokers for our monthly meeting. Although there are no dividers or high walls that can seclude a group from other customers, I find the place very peaceful, fit for serious a talk among team members.

The French ambiance is really delightful to the eyes. They serve fresh chicken and veggies, stuffed with herbs and spices. Their food tastes authentic organic (I should know because I was raised in the mountains so I know what is fresh and what is pretending to be). Their service water is chilled with malunggay and pandan leaves.

Bonus Tip: Bring your vegan friends. They will love it there.

Dona Soledad Avenue, Bicutan
Best for: Japanese food treat to a business partner

When we want an intimate talk with someone who is into Japanese food, Bono Tei along Dona Soledad Avenue is the best place to head to. It was on a cold December evening that I first set foot in this restaurant, and I thought the ambiance was really similar to that of Tamagoya in Masinag, Antipolo.

Since I have been to Japan, I can say Bono Tei, with all due respect to them, offers Japanese dishes that are not trying hard to be Japanese. There are tens and tens of pretenders out there.

The last time I was there, we had a treat of Japanese food to fresh grads producing our summer video. A while ago, I discovered that one of our top sellers also dined there when she came to Metro Manila.

Bonus Tip: Yes you can ask the waiter for a pair of spoon and fork!

Malacanang Village, San Antonio
Best for After-work Chill: Food + Beer + Music

When you are at Q Grill, you will think that you are in a resort somewhere in Batangas. Thanks to the coconut trees, small huts, and the suburb landscape of the South. I admit that I am a regular customer of this resto bar, it is just a block away from Lancris.

There was this time when we used the restaurant as our venue for our annual awarding. We ended the ceremony with a superb lunch- no one ever told us that food was not good. I recommend sinigang and tinapa rice for a good feast.

During weekends, they have an acoustic band performing live for diners. Whenever I go there, I do not miss sharing a bucket of beer with my colleagues.

Bonus Tip: They have a very spacious parking space in front of the restaurant.
