noma-mapLike New York’s Williamsburg neighborhood, NoMa (North of Makati) is the emerging area for the hip and the artistic in the metropolis.
The Collective, found in this area, houses artists and entrepreneurs that runs different businesses like art galleries, retail shops, and restaurants. There’s Suez & Zapote, an independent studio that specializes in silkscreen art and designs for local brand Team Manila. And then there’s the saGuijo Café + Bar, a haven for music lovers and independent musicians.
Location: 7341 Yakal Street, San Antonio Village, Makati City
Cuisine: Swiss and European
On the outside, Chesa Bianca is nondescript, but take a step inside and see Swiss chalet-inspired interiors that will make your heart sing. This restaurant offers authentic Swiss dishes, from cheese fondue to ham cordon bleu, as well as European dishes such as fish fillet Florentine, warm potato salad with fennel and shrimps, and French onion soup with cheese and croutons.
Try: The cheese fondue. Dip crunchy croutons in a bubbling mix of melted Gruyere and Emmental cheeses.
