MANILA – For many, Christmas won’t be complete without a shopping trip to the popular Greenhills tiangge.
While the Greenhills Shopping Center has undergone a massive redevelopment, there are still a number of tenants which have been operating there for decades.
If you are planning to do your Christmas shopping in Greenhills, why not include a food trip in your itinerary? Here are some treats that are unique to Greenhills and will definitely bring back memories for those who grew up in the area.
1. The Coffee Shop at Unimart
The long-time Greenhills tenant Unimart is set to be relocated. Before that happens, have a meal or snack at The Coffee Shop. It now has several viands on display, food court-style, near the counter but for regular customers, this restaurant is synonymous to the spaghetti and hamburger steak, which can be ordered as a set meal.
2. Majestic Ham
For many, Christmas won’t be complete without this Chinese-style ham. But you don’t have to wait for the holidays to enjoy a slice of Majestic ham with pandesal. Majestic has a stall at Unimart, near The Coffee Shop.
3. Kookie Korner
Just a stall away from Majestic is another Greenhills fave -- Kookie Korner, which is famous for its oatmeal cookies and other old-school baked goodies.
4. New Sunbeam
Tucked away in the sprawling tiangge area at the ground floor of V-Mall is this humble Chinese eatery, famous for its fresh lumpia.
5. Chocfull of Nuts
Take a quick break from the shopping and head to Shoppesville for this small snack shop known for its cuapao and chocolate cake.
Another popular snack bar one floor up is Kamicos, which has been the go-to place for tacos for those who hangout in Greenhills since the 1980s.
7. Le Ching
Greenhills boasts of several grand Chinese restaurants but many still flock to this classic tea house in Shoppesville for its dimsum and rice toppings like the bestselling Pork Spareribs.
