If you’ve ever dined at Manila Eats—a Filipino walk-up window and outdoor dining space in Riverview—then you know that the popular dishes sell out in a few hours. But a much larger space may change its first-come-first-serve basis into a full-service dining experience.
On Facebook, Manila Eats announced plans to relocate and celebrate the grand opening of its new Tampa eatery—located at 1601 S 22nd St, just south of Palmetto Beach— on Thursday, Sept. 28.
Owner Veronica Meneses—who was born and raised in the Pampanga province right outside of Manila—took to social media to inform her customers of the new Manila Eats outpost, stating that the soon-to-open restaurant can seat up to 48 patrons and will host karaoke and live bands on the weekend.
Until her Tampa restaurant debuts later this month, Meneses will continue to dish out her beloved pork and chicken adobo, a variety of fried pork and fish, lumpia and Filipino desserts like sapin-sapin, halo halo, cassava cake, flan and ube ice cream out of her flagship Riverview location at 10621 Tucker Jones Rd.
For the latest news on Manila Eats and its ever-changing menu, head to its Facebook at @Manila-Eats, where offerings are posted daily.
Before relocation on Sept. 28, the popular Filipino spot will remain open from noon-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, noon-8 p.m. Thursday-Friday and noon-3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
