The Milkyway Café along Arnaiz Avenue is one of the best places in Metro Manila to experience traditional Filipino comfort food. Established in the 1950s, it is best known for its northern Philippine cuisine from Pampanga and their delicious home-made ice cream. Milkyway is currently headed by Chef Gamboa, the man behind their award-winning kare-kare (oxtail and peanut stew). Their purple yam ice cream is legendary. Fun fact: the Milkyway is part of a group of restaurants run by the Milkyway group, housed in a single building. Other options include Spanish, Thai and Japanese venues.
