Promising a healthier twist to the traditional Chinese hot pot, Huat Pot at P. Guevarra Street lets guests choose from four soup stocks, including a vegetarian option.

The restaurant offers a large array of ingredients from vegetables to meats, which include beef, pork, chicken and lamb. A sauce buffet also allows guests to concoct their own sauces to suit their personal tastes.

Torch

Torch along Connecticut Street tweaks comfort food staples by combining different flavors – think gambas and pizza, burger and macaroni and cheese, and smoked salmon, truffle oil and sushi.

But unlike some comfort food restaurants in Metro Manila that enjoy a certain snob appeal (mainly because of its overpriced offerings), Torch is a family dining concept with a relaxed, unpretentious feel.
