The Podium

The Podium

The various residential, commercial, retail and corporate spaces scattered around Ortigas has turned it into one of the places in Metro Manila that seems to never sleep. People heading to and from work and school fill the streets on weekdays while families and groups of friends looking for a day out in the city troop to its malls and entertainment centers on weekends.

For those who prefer a place that is smaller and more intimate compared to the crowd-drawing mammoth of a mall that is SM Megamall, The Podium is a perfect place for that dinner after work or a weekend spent with loved ones.

Located along ADB Avenue just behind St. Francis Square, The Podium has a mix of dining options featuring a variety of cuisines. Long-time favorite Borough serves American-style comfort food such as Fried Chicken and Waffles, Steak and Eggs, and Buffalo Chicken Wings 24/7. For a hint of nostalgia, try dropping by late at night for some of Borough’s Milk and Cookies, a dozen bite-size cookies which come in three different types served with a bottle of milk.

Quezon City-favorite Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza has opened a branch in The Podium to the delight of foodies who are unwilling to brave the traffic up north. Make sure to try any menu item that comes with burrata, a fresh cheese made from mozzarella and milk.

Those who wish to try Wildflour Cafe + Bakery’s breakfast items, salads, sandwiches, and pastries but are likewise reluctant to venture all the way to Bonifacio Global City or Makati can head to their Podium branch as well.

Other dining options include Juju Eats, perfect for the health-conscious, the pizza and pasta dishes in Burgoo, Cinnabon for their timeless cinnamon rolls, and the sweet and savory crepes of Cafe Breton.

Once your stomach is full and happy, catch a movie at the cinema or shop to your heart’s content. The Podium is home to stores such as Beauty Bar, Hobbes and Landes, Arrow, The Body Shop, Power Mac Center, and Lacoste.
