6 Restaurants That Are Worth Driving to the South For


BF, Alabang and Tagaytay, here we come!



The North and South have their obvious differences—and a stretch of concrete in between—but for sure great food is a common denominator.


North side, old favorites in Ortigas, QC, Makati, Fort and Kapitolyo have had their fair share of food features, but hey, the South is also where it’s at. You can take your pick from restaurants along main roads like Aguirre Avenue and President’s Avenue in BF Homes; commercial establishments like Molito in Alabang draw a lot of attention from foodies, too. There’s definitely no shortage of memorable gastronomical experiences here. And if traffic wasn't always so bad, we'd head over to these places every other weekend!
