Filipino food – Bulacan Halo Halo
There are three words to describe Filipino food: hearty, delicious and comforting. The Filipino cuisine consists of noodle dishes, stews, pork and chicken dishes and even dishes that are quite eccentric.
There are also dishes that are influenced by the Chinese cuisine such as sweet and sour chicken and beef with broccoli.
At Bulacan Halo Halo, it is highly recommended to try the bbq pork or chicken skewers. They have a sweet yet smokey taste and are served with a certain sauce that is a mix between fish sauce and vinegar.
You can try traditional food here such as pancit, but they do offer a buffet on Saturdays and Sundays for 10 euros.

Japanese food – Koi sushi bar
Koi sushi bar is inspired to be a commercial sushi bar, just like in Japan. They have a sushi conveyor belt that has sushi, or you can order sushi from their menu.
They have traditional types of sushi such as nigiri, maki rolls and sashimi, but they also have modern sushi that’s even baked and with delicious toppings.
They also serve other Japanese inspired foods such as rice balls, karaage chicken and tempura shrimp balls. The Japanese cuisine can be described as light, healthy and hearty.
