I’m not a professional food blogger but just an ordinary girl who can shock some people with my appetite. Pardon my third post about food. LOL.
Another recent discovery through my brother: NBA Cafe in Manila! It’s the first ever NBA Cafe in the WORLD which features NBA memorabilia, and well, everything related to the sport that the whole world loves.
NBA Cafe is a resto bar offering American food, of course, while diners enjoy live NBA games or reruns on LED televisions all over the place. It’s also a museum featuring some drool-worthy displays for NBA fans to marvel at. Wherever you look at, you’d feel the energy and NBA vibe emanating from the food, the walls decorated with frames and jerseys and NBA teams’ logos, and of course, the fans having the time of their lives cheering on their teams. A visit to the resto bar would be incomplete if you won’t take snapshots of everything and anything NBA!
The bar area is equipped with a number of screens overhead so you can watch the games while chilling with a glass of beer:
But if you want more action, then look at the bigger than life screen in front of the dining area:
Now I’m no expert in basketball, but I used to play NBA Jam and NBA Live on the computer. I wanted to bring home the framed photo of my favorite player (in NBA Jam LOL), *drum roll please* Charles Barkley!
After exploring every corner of NBA Cafe, we treated ourselves to classic American food: burgers and hotdogs and milkshakes. The big servings seemed to challenge my katakawan but I managed to finish my hotdog and even eat one slider, and don’t forget my glass of milkshake!
The only disappointment we encountered that night was the extremely sloooow service – it took forever to serve the milkshake and to hand the bill. I hope it was just because of the many diners pouring in that night. Nonetheless, it was a unique dining experience and was worth every centavo.
Watch your favorite NBA teams battle it out and emerge as winners (or go home as losers) in this year’s playoffs (go Miami!) You can be part of the intense games as early as 7am.
Come visit NBA Cafe Manila on the Fifth Floor, SM Aura Premier, C5 Road Corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, or contact them at 5561683.
The cafe is open from 10 AM to 10 PM (Mon-Thu, Sun), and 10 AM to 2 AM (Fri-Sat), but they are open as early as 7 AM when there are scheduled games.
