Dining in is out, dining out is in
Apart from observing social distancing in restaurants, people these days prefer outdoor areas to dine in for the fear of COVID-19 transmission. Whether a restaurant has an open-air space or a garden area where makeshift tables and chairs are placed for an al fresco dining, businesses are getting more and more creative to entice people to dine in. In the metro, there’s a not-so-hidden gem that we, people from the south, really love– and it’s called 19 East.
Open for dine-in Friday to Sunday from 5 PM to 11 PM, 19 East Bar and Grill is a place you’d surely want to go to spend chill weekends. The resto-bar is known as the best place for live music south of Metro Manila pre-pandemic, but it has turned its vast garden bar into large outdoor seating to ensure that people are safe while dining in.
The resto-bar is offering typical food and drinks that you’d be happy to munch on while savoring the cool and refreshing ambiance. They have appetizers ranging from Roasted Peanuts and Kropek to Spam Musubi. Their main dishes include party favorites such as Crispy Pata, Sisig, Salpicao, Lechon Kawali, as well as Grilled Tuna Panga, Tuna Belly, and even Blue Marlin. 19 East also has a variety of drinks to choose from as they have wines, spirits, and even fruit juices.
If you are thinking: “Is it safe to dine at 19 East?” We’re telling you, definitely. 19 East is compliant with the rules that the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) and the Department of Health (DOH) have instituted for restaurants and bars.
