8. Café Juanita

Located on West Capitol Drive in Kapitolyo Pasig, Cafe Juanita has been a neighborhood favorite. In spite of the restaurant boom in the area, this place continues to pack itself to the brim due to its kitschy details and treats for the eyes thanks to its eclectic and over-the-top Asian-inspired interiors.
