At Manam, Filipino flavors are given relevance and new life.
You cannot talk about Manam without mentioning Filipino hospitality. With their chain of chic (yet budget-friendly) Filipino restaurants, The Moment Group has made sure that every single one of their customers enjoys Filipino food.
Let us begin with the menu. It’s big and meaty, with everything from balut with three types of salt to green mango-spiked sinigang. The bulky book is divided into two sections: Classics and Twists (making sure your lola is just as satisfied with her Fresh Lumpiang Ubod as you are with your Lumpiang Dinuguan); each dish is available in small, medium, and large serving sizes. Filipino food has traditionally been designed to be family-oriented, generous, abundant, and best served with great banter, but while Manam is conducive to those rambunctious reunions, it also makes itself ideal for times when you just want a private moment with your House Crispy Sisig.
At Manam, there are no excuses. The restaurant is impossible not to love simply because there are so many things to enjoy. Even less-publicized dishes, like the Bangus Sisig and Pork Ear Kinilaw, prove to be sleeper hits. The Pritong Hito is as soft and subtle as the other great catfish dishes out there, but the addition of pork floss adds an unexpected sweet new twist.
