7 Late Night Eats in Bonifacio Global City, Philippines This 2020
Bonifacio Global City has become a hotbed for nightly excursions, what with its neighbouring bars, clubs, and restaurants opening late into the night and early into the morning. But while its spacious sidewalks and well-lit streets are a comfort to those tumbling and drunk, its best recourse to partygoers and night owls are its array of choice restaurants that are open at (almost) any time you’re craving.
With everything from pancakes to waffles to omelets and even Filipino favourites, Denny’s serves hearty breakfasts at all hours of the day. Open 24 hours, it’s the perfect place to enjoy both sweet and savoury meals that will power you up or wind you down after a long night. Enjoy their world-famous chicken and waffles or their deliciously sweet salted caramel pancakes for a perfect early morning breakfast.
Tim Ho Wan
Tim Ho Wan has been a hit since it first came to Manila back in 2014. While most people know of it as a delicious brunch spot that serves dim sum alongside its iconic pork buns, some also know its BGC branch to be a hotspot for early morning snacks. Open until 3:00am, and just a stone’s throw away from some of Manila’s hottest clubs, the Tim Ho Wan Uptown Mall branch is the perfect place to grab bite-sized dumplings and savoury baked buns.
