BF Homes, a village in the “south”—or Parañaque City, more specifically—is home to a lot of food concepts that are only available here and not anywhere else. You can find different cuisines that will satisfy whatever craving you might have, from Korean to Japanese to Greek, proving that this place is an absolute foodie haven.
The south, as the residents of Muntinlupa, Las Piñas and Parañaque fondly call their beloved turf, covers the quieter parts of the metro, dominated by village residences and open lands instead of high-rise buildings and condominiums, as it is in the CBD area. So if you feel like saying goodbye temporarily to the hustle and bustle of the “north” and the business district, you gotta head down south. And in this newest edition of CVMN Eats (formerly Hungry Caveman), we list down the restaurants you must try when you decide to take a drive down south for some good grub:
La Chinesca is a Bruce Ricketts masterpiece hidden in the streets of BF. A tiny restaurant that will serve you fresh and delicious Mexican dishes. Everything from Tostadas, Carnitas, and Guacamole will have you drooling and craving for more!

This Chinese restaurant is hard to miss while driving down Aguirre Ave., with its name displayed in big and lighted letters in front.

A great place for big groups and celebrations. Make sure to try their Hot Prawn Salad, Fried Rice, Shrimp Siomai and Peking Duck!
