Cherry Pie promises that the resto is “directed towards being the melting pot of the best flavors and different dishes from across the regions.” and that it offers Filipino cuisine from different regions that we don’t normally visit in the metro, made available in Manila itself.
People in Zomato has given mix reviews about the place, but people praise Alab for its right at home feel alongside the overall ambiance of the place, and of course, their familiar Filipino food made with Alab’s ingenuity.
The best food that can be found in the place is, according to the customers, are the ice creams and the bibingka cheesecake. These ice cream flavors range from Barako Pastillas to even the Filipino fish cuisine Laing. Definitely one of Alab’s strengths is their innovation of Filipino food and cuisine while not veering off too far from the food that generations of Filipinos love.
