But with every bad news, comes the good. So before anyone loses heart completely, I’m here to present you with the top five dining places to check out in SM North Edsa, which you SHOULD visit, when the stringent quarantine measures have been lifted or when COVID-19 finally leaves our midst’s, for good.
1. Blake’s Wings and Steaks
This small restaurant has to extend their eating area to the lobby to accommodate loyalists and new eaters. Famous for, you guessed it right, wings and ribs, their food is delicious- and a true value for money- all thanks to their hefty servings.

Bag O’ Shrimps is a great place for seafood lovers–because of their delicious and generous servings of shrimps- as well as other seafood faves like crabs, mussels and clams. They also have a good line of appetisers like french fries and calamari- that will surely stimulate your appetite before you start getting dirty with those shrimpy goodness.

This Wine Lounge and Kitchen located in the Sky Garden, is a quaint place that packs a punch when it comes to great-tasting flavours. Apart from their pizza and hummus, meatball sandwiches, Philly Cheesesteak, they also have huge platters, like the Sausage Platter and Bruschetta Selection, which pair well with their extensive wine list.
