There are 4 places to get craft beers in BGC, Fort – Tap Station (Burgos Circle), The Brewery at the Palace (Palace Pool Club), Perfect Pint (Crossroads Building), and The Bottle Shop (Net One Center). While it’s a toss for me for me between The Bottle Shop and Tap Station, I recommend Tap Station for local beers on tap! If you prefer having a variety of choices for bottled beers (imported and local craft beers), you’d like The Bottle Shop.
Tap Station usually have 25 beers on tap, and they have the local Philippine craft beers from Craft Revolt, Brewery at the Palace, and Pedro Brew. They also serve my favorite imported beer on tap – Hoegaarden Rosee, this is the sweet beer which I recommend to non beer drinkers! Since I also like Rosee wine, I love this beer. I personally like Belgian wheat beers and IPA. I usually order beer samplers because I like having the choice of trying a lot of beers rather than focusing on one. You can order Beer Flight in Tap Station for P295.00, and get to pick 6 from the available beers.

If you’re just starting with baking, you can find the most basic essentials you need here like pans, measuring cups, spoons, spatula and basic baking ingredients.
For the more experienced bakers, this is definitely a baker’s heaven, there’s assorted ingredients like food color gels, assorted chocolates like Malagos, chocolate chips and bars, toppings for cheesecakes, cupcake toppers, boxes, cupcake liners, and the like.
They also have assorted party needs! If you’re throwing a small birthday bash, you will find random containers, decors, and other party needs. Baker or not, definitely worth a visit when you’re in the mall!

There used to be only one Greek restaurant in the area, Greeka Kouzina in SM Aura. The good news is Cyma finally opened in BGC with Souv by Cyma! Cyma favorites are being served in the restaurant with additional items in the menu. Roka Salata has always been my favorite salad, so happy I can get it anytime!

Manong Taho along the streets of Lawton Ave and Bayani Road.

The most common recommendation might be eat in a buffet, but the answer would be in Moe’s Southwest Grill, Watami, and Texas Roadhouse in Uptown, BGC. Since these 3 restaurants are by Bistro Group, you can actually cross order from these 3, just ask the waiter to bring the menu. I’ve eaten here on numerous occasions craving for all sorts of food, and random orders from the 3 restaurants. I recommend sitting in Watami or Texas Roadhouse then just order from Uncle Moe’s for the restaurant feel vs fast food vibe in Moe’s.

Did you know that there are grocery apps already that can deliver not only groceries, but wine, cupcakes, rice, even Wagyu Beef? MetroMart and Honestbee apps are life savers! You can schedule delivery – both date and time, you can pay via cash or credit card. You need to choose your area, as they not cater to all areas, but they definitely deliver in Taguig.
I found it very useful when you have rice and fresh milk delivered (since they’re heavy), last minute missing grocery ingredient while cooking, or emergency wine and cheese for impromptu guests visiting, and they would deliver it right to your doorstep. Also for items that are not within the area like Kitayama Wagyu Beef (which is located in Chino Roces Ave., Makati), no need to drive all the way to Makati for your steak fix!
MetroMart App Delivery Charge is FREE when you reach P1,000 minimum, they have Shopping Fee (P80.00) and Delivery Fee if you don’t.
Honestbee App Delivery Charge is FREE when you reach P1,500 minimum (but they would have free deliver promos from time to time), they have a fixed Concierge fee (P99.00).
I have used both and I’m satisfied with the service, MetroMart used to deliver SM Groceries, but it’s not part of the stores they cater to, so I now use Honestbee for Robinsons Selections.
