The restaurant located in Legazpi Village was specifically hailed for their pomelo salad and Thai coconut ice cream.

"I still dream of the pomelo salad with shrimp, winged beans, wild rocket, yuzu, nam jim, pickled quail eggs and Thai coconut ice cream,” Ashlea Halpern, one of the critics wrote.

"Your Local," adjacent to the Yardstick coffee shop, opened in 2014. It is under the management of Ynigo Santos, a chef/videographer and Denny Antonino, also a chef. The restaurant which has a laid-back atmosphere serves Asian and Western cuisines with a twist. 

The list, which included only 207 restaurants, were put together by pool of experts composed of chefs, food writers and most-in-the-know travelers.

Meanwhile, early this year, Philippines' "Gallery Vask" ranked 39 on Asia's 50 best restaurants.
