Be careful of the extra bread scam

.... This is the third time they tried this one.... You order the kebabs. It comes with bread. You order the dips. It comes with bread. Then the waitress asks if you want extra bread. As if I on my own could eat it. I clearly declined it!.... But knew what to expect as they again... read more

I have tasted a lot of hummus in other manila restaurants. Hummus in this restaurant is a must try! do not be fooled with rowdy streets where it is located. Well worth the travel. They have two restaurant.. one budget friendly with a so-so ambiance, the other one feels like you are in Arabian nights!

I try to find shawarma in every city that I visit. This place was only two blocks from the Diamond hotel where I was staying, so it made my quest quite easy. I ate inside as one reviewer had suggested and was rewarded with comfortable air conditioning on a muggy day. I ordered the shawarma promotion, and I received three... More

Located on a narrow street in Ermita Manila, this place offers authentic and delicious food. Open 24/7, it is a haven for food trippers during the unholy hours of the evening. The prices are reasonable, their food is really tasty and worth trying. Portions are just enough fill your cravings. If you are coming to this place, just forget the... More

Coming to the Philippines from Oman, I was missing my default food. My memories of Shawarma in PH always meant beef, and in middle eastern countries, other than beef, there's chicken. And being a non-red meat fan, it has always been comforting. So finding SSC was like an oasis in the desert. There's shisha with double apple flavor, chicken shawarma... More
