If you have no place to go or are just in town for a few nights, Kinabuch is a place to go. Don't get me wrong, they have good food but not great food that you cannot get in Manila. For the foreigners then this is one place to go.

What they have going for them is their location. They're very accessible. Good place to hang out for drinks. Their food is pretty average.
