Heads up, foodies! Here’s a rundown of brand-new palate-pleasers and all-time favorites to try this month


These eats deserve a place in your heart and tummy


It’s a good (and delicious) time to be alive these days. Not waxing philosophical here, but just stating facts about the bustling and ever-alive local food and beverage scene (thank goodness!). There’s always a great mix of new dining options popping up and a slew of old-time establishments still serving our favorites and go-tos ready for rediscovering.


And possibly the best thing? They’ve all gone digital in a one-stop platform—the SM Malls Online app, where all you’ve to do is browse until you salivate, add to cart, and checkout. Before you know it, your meals and drinks will have safely arrived right on your doorstep to savor and feast on. 

This month, because we truly care about keeping your dining rotation fresh and exciting, we’re giving you a rundown of our recommended eats—all up to 50% off until the 31st and certified foodie-approved. 

Beef, Spicy Pork, Soy Pork, Soy Chicken, and Spicy Chicken from Ducup MNL

Korean celebrity and comedian Ryan Bang owns Ducup, with its origins tracing back to Bang’s traditional Korean kitchen brimming with rich and authentic Korean flavors. It opened shop in 2020 and is serving conveniently packaged on-the-go Korean staples such as kimchi rice with japchae cooked with beef, pork, and chicken skewers.


Until May 31, all their Ducup bestselling meals in their SM City North EDSA outpost are 20% off, from P169 to P135.20. Choose from their Beef, Spicy Pork, Soy Pork, Soy Chicken, or Spicy Chicken rice combo meals—or sample all for a filling Korean fare binge.


Fried Chicken Krapao Platter from Khao Khai Chicken House

Up for some unpretentious Thai food? Khao Khai, which first opened its doors in Poblacion, Makati, has got their signature Fried Chicken Krapao Platter on a 20% discount until the 31st. Available in their SM City Fairview and SM Mall of Asia branches, this is your traditional Thai basil fried chicken stir-fry going for P209.30 instead of P299.


ICYDK—Khao Khao (Thai for chicken rice) prides itself for only dishing out Thai fare sans any Western gaze or influence, standing out by offering regional delicacies, particularly from Iran, Thailand’s culinary capital, and authentic Thai street food. There’s no pad Thai here, but that’s okay—and, frankly, quite refreshing!



Signature Milk Tea and Roasted Milk Tea from COBO Tea Beverages

Another must-try milk tea joint is COBO, which was founded in December 2010 by a Filipino-Chinese entrepreneur and his wife from Cebu City. Fun fact: The founders even attended a Tea University in Taiwan to bring an authentic milk tea experience (with all its lovely intricacies and nuanced complexities) to the country.


You’re in luck, because you can sample two mouthwatering cups when you order from their SM Mall of Asia outlet until the 31st. Their signature Milk Tea and Roasted Milk Tea are on a buy-1, get-1 deal right now—only P139 from P278. We suggest getting the Roasted Milk Tea with a slightly sweeter, richer flavor profile versus your typical milk tea cup.


Meal B from Vito’s BBQ

Nothing beats a grilled chicken barbecue meal when you just want something filling and comforting at the same time. Vito’s BBQ has their Meal B (boneless chicken with java rice and atchara) at a 50% discount until month-end if you purchase from their SM City North EDSA branch.


Perfect on days when you want a delicious homecooked meal, but don’t have the time to whip up something in the kitchen. Sweet, savory, and smoky flavors await when you try this classic!


Bestselling Drinks from The Alley

Known for their brown sugar milk tea series, The Alley: It’s Time for Tea is offering up their signature and bestselling cups of bouncy boba cooked in brown sugar syrup at 20% off until May 31.


You can sip and slurp on their Brown Sugar Deerioca Creme Brûlée, Cocoa Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk, Matcha Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk, or Snow Velvet Deerioca Tea Latte, among many others, for only P124 (before P155). This sweet, exclusive offer’s available at their SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, and SM City North EDSA outlets.


Rib & Chicken Blue Plate or Smoked Spring Chicken Blue Plate from Racks

You’ll never go wrong with a Racks Blue Plate, especially if you’re hankering for a good ol’ meal that tastes familiar. Now’s your chance to score two Blue Plates of your choice for the price of one—starting at P345.


Choose from their Rib & Chicken Blue Plate, a combo of fall-off-the-bone ribs and fried chicken served with white rice and a side, or their Smoked Chicken Blue Plate, a juicy and tender smoked spring chicken with rice and your choice of side. Now serving at Racks in SM City North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Southmall.


8-pc or 12-pc Boneless Fried Chicken from Zark’s Burgers

Having a backyard summer soiree with the pals or the fam? You can order an 8- or 12-piece box of chicken wings from Zark’s Burgers and score another box for free until month-end—from P598 to P299. Their cult-fave wings come in an array of flavors: Southern Classic, Caribbean BBQ, Honey Soy Garlic, Buffalo, and Honey Buffalo.


They’re boneless, deep-fried to perfection, and hand-tossed with Zark’s signature sauces. Pair with a cold drink or an icy cocktail—and enjoy!
