I had the opportunity to visit SM City Manila just recently and it has improved a lot from the time that I visited it a few years back. One of the things that I missed about this mall is its Food Court, very nostalgic.
SM City Manila, From the day it opened way back April 12, 2000, Natividad Almeda-Lopez corner A. Villegas and San Marcelino Streets, Ermita Manila just beside Manila City Hall became the mall where locals from Manila and students from near universities and colleges found their new place to hang out with family and friends.
Known for its accessibility for several public transportations and just beside Manila City Hall, it has been a known mall for Manillennials and Millenials who prefer convenience in shopping and a place where they can make appointments with government offices like Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Land Transportation Office (LTO), MARINA for Seafarers and the like. It was a one-stop-shop where you can enjoy shopping, ease-of-access and of course dining.
With this being said, the mall that you loved always gets better for you as SM City Manila gives it Food Court a fresh new look, improved food stores, and an overall interior that will give you a reason to relive the good old days.
Having a fresh and lively interior is what caught my eyes, it has relived the glory days of SM City Manila Foodcourt where you can choose a different variety of food in an affordable price and with more stores to choose from, create your new experiences on this beloved Foodcourt.
Since we're talking about food, I did not let the opportunity pass for me to try most of the stalls in SM Manila Foodcourt
