272 – On Post-Lockdown Lunches: Triptych 47

Now that Metro Manila is on a second general community quarantine from mid-August until the end of the year as per the president’s Nov. 30 announcement, I have had the chance to return to places I formerly tried out before the pandemic struck. I frequently feature some of these spots here at The Monching’s Guide and the blog’s Instagram account.

These restaurants have implemented safety measures in their establishments compliant to public health protocols, though their customer traffic has not returned to pre-pandemic levels. Most of them still rely on revenue from food delivery apps like Foodpanda, GrabFood, and Lalafood – as a good number of people still prefer the convenience these apps bring and the safety that comes from staying home.

Here are three lunches I had during my occasional trips outside, with safety protocols in place of course.


Superstar Teriyaki Chicken with Rice Meal, Hot Star Large Fried Chicken


Chicken Cutlet with Vegetables Curry Rice, CoCo Ichibanya


All Star Tendon Bowl, Tenya Tempura Tendon


Until the next post – bon appetit, stay safe, and Season’s Greetings!
