Mini-food park The Shipyard opens in Malate
MANILA, Philippines – If you frequent the Malate area, then we have good news for you!
The Shipyard, a mini-food park along Bocobo Street corner Malvar Street in Malate is serving up booze, Filipino street food, and Middle Eastern dishes all in one place.
Consistent with its name, The Shipyard is a two-story structure that is mainly made of stacked-up shipping containers.
These shipping containers have been reconstructed to be the restaurant’s kitchen and places where customers can sit, eat, and chill. You can choose to either stay outside or inside an air-conditioned shipping container.
The Shipyard's high ceiling, its lights and music, and its grand graffiti wall, easily attracts the attention of students, backpackers, travelers, or anyone who's passing by. Their graffiti wall was made by a group of students from the University of the Philippines-Diliman.
The Shipyard calls itself a mini-food park, because there are only two food stalls you can choose from – Bernie's Southern Fried and East London Kebab and Burgers.
Bernie’s Southern Fried
Who doesn’t like fried chicken? Bernie's Southern Fried serves the classic comfort food, and you can even pick the perfect sides to go with your meal. Try their two-piece fried chicken (P145) or their tenders and fries (P150).
They also have Filipino dishes like pork sisig (P200), tokwa't baboy (P150), and lumpia (P135).
And who wouldn’t want to miss our good old trusty Pinoy street food like kwek-kwek and isaw? The Shipyard also has a bar, and these make the perfect pulutan.
Available on the grill are pork barbecue (P35), pork isaw (P25), chicken gizzard (P25), chicken ass (P35), pork liver (P30), pork ear (P35), and kwek-kwek (4 pieces for P20).
East London Kebab and Burgers
The other stall is East London Kebab and Burgers, where they serve Middle Eastern dishes like doner plates, shawarma, and even burgers.
Hungry for shawarma? Don't miss out on the heavy Doner wrap (P150) of Eastern London.
The Shipyard, which is owned by the same people behind the popular Señor Pollo, is the perfect place for after school or work dinner and drinks.
