The chefs at R2 Restaurant cook up a menu of East-meets-West fusion fare paired with hot and cold specialty drinks. Dining duos can assuage hunger pangs or attempt to teach other the true meaning of Christmas by sharing starters such as the paper-wrapped chicken or fried tofu. West-leaning appetites are sated with entrees including a seafood alfredo pasta or hot panini, while Eastbound palates can opt for pork fried rice or a curry rice dish. The customizable meals let diners express themselves via choices of rice or pasta, buttered corn or mixed vegetables, a trio of three savory meats, and drizzlings of black pepper, mushroom, or garlic sauce. A generous 24-ounce glass of 1 of 14 different types of iced tea pairs the intricately spiced entrees with exotic flavors such as lychee and plum, and the green boba milk tea lets diners take swift midmeal sips of dairy-infused liquid without toting along their own zip-locked bags of nacho cheese.

To say that the Filipino word "sarap" merely translates as "delicious" is an understatement. The traditional Filipino dishes served at Sarap Kitchen give a clearer idea of what "sarap" truly entails. Skewers of sticky-sweet barbecued chicken or pork pair well with mounds of steamed rice, and the noodle dish pancit bihon presents a celebration on a plate with a confetti-esque sprinkling of diced vegetables. Meals of whole grilled squid, lechon kawali, and crisp lumpia lead to a delectable finish when dessert consists of a bright bowl of halo halo topped with purple scoops of ube ice cream.

The chefs at Honey BBQ know that if you're good at something, you should stick to it. That's why they keep their menu simple, and stick to the classic Chinese barbecue recipes they do best. The menu is made up of only six options, starting with a choice of sizzling chicken, beef, or a combination of the two slathered in sauce. From there, chefs toss these cuts onto bowls or platters filled with rice and cabbage. After that, the only choice left is which soda to sip and which table will make passersby the most jealous.
