It's always good to end an alcohol-fueled night with some tasty, cheap grub. But where are you supposed to find that killer combination at the ungodly hour of 2 a.m., while your head is aching from a burgeoning hangover?

That’s where we step in, guys. Because we're all bros, we went on a little drinking hunting spree to look for such places!

Bookmark this page for a list of foodie hotspots where you can wash down the booze while solving your post-inuman cravings.


1) Countryside Restaurant

After jamming with your favorite bands at Route 196, stop by this long-standing Katipunan resto for some fresh-off-the-grill goods. The ambiance may have changed (from a more laid-back to a more modern atmosphere), but they still serve the same lutong bahay favorites at affordable price points.

Must-tries:

Their bestselling pork barbecue (P64 for two sticks) and inihaw na baboy (P70 for two sticks) are tender and tasty as is, and would be perfect with a scoop or two of steaming rice. Their kalderetang kambing (P150) is also a hit: The meat is perfectly cooked, and the spicy sauce alone can suffice as ulam.

224 Katipunan Ave., Blueridge A, Quezon City
Store Hours: 10:AM to 2:30 AM


2) D'Original Tapsi Ni Vivian at Bulalohan

A popular hangout place for hungry ones with not-so-deep pockets, D'Original Tapsi Ni Vivian at Bulalohan has spawned other branches in areas like Marikina and Cainta.

Must-tries:

Their tapsilog (P95) is a classic. Tender, spicy-sweet tapa, topped with a perfectly runny egg and a generous serving of garlic rice, it effortlessly gives other 24-hour tapa joints a run for their money. Not up for breakfast grub? Try their bulalo (P340), which can make three to four tummies very, very happy. Stay in a bahay kubo shed for a very Pinoy feel!

6 Lavar St., Brgy. Duyan-duyan, Proj, 3, Quezon City
Store Hours: Open 24 hours

3) Farinas Ilocos Empanada

Expect authentic Ilocano specialties at unbeatable prices at this low-key food spot. Drop by for a feast even those up north will be proud of.

Must-tries:

Their ultimate empanada (P99) is deceptively large, with a crispy orange shell generously stuffed with egg, meat bits, and sprouts. Hankering for rice? Their combo (P140) has bagnet, longganisa, a salted egg, and tomatoes on the side. They also have other kinds of nonfood Ilocano goods for sale here that can serve as souvenirs.

4) R&J Bulalohan

Craving for excellent bulalo, but too lazy to drive all the way up to Tagaytay for the good stuff? This low-key spot in the heart of Mandaluyong should do the trick. The service here is fast, the helpings are generous, and the food is worth way more than their affordable price tags.

Must-tries:

Their beef caldereta (P210) is done Batangas-style, with a semi-sweet, peanut-y hint that begs for extra helpings of rice. But you can't go here without ordering their bulalo special (P309), with melt-in-your-mouth meat and free refills of warm soup. Don't be shy to get first dibs on the sinful marrow; your hangover the next day would be your atonement.

600 Boni Ave., Plainview, Mandaluyong City
Store Hours: Open 24 hours


5) Kanto Freestyle Breakfast

There's no better way to cap off your evening drinking spree than with a hearty, very early breakfast. Comfort food at equally comfortable prices is Kanto's trademark; the never-ending crowds this joint attracts are a testament to the hearty goodness they dish out.

Must-tries:

Their honey garlic chicken (P95) might be unconventional breakfast grub, but you certainly wouldn't mind having this one to start each day. Their New Zealand beef tapa (P110) is tender and tasty, while their Chocnut champorado with tuyo (P80), amazingly made like how your grandma would cook it, can easily take you back to your fondest childhood memories. Top things off with their pancake platter (P195), a sampler of fluffy pancakes with three toppings of your choice. This, friends, is how you can start your day right after living it up all night!
