Mix-and-match your food faves via new GrabKitchens in Malate and Paranaque

Don’t you sometimes get those really intense cravings for your favorite dishes from your go-to restaurants but you’re stuck at home in an area where the restos have no branch?

Doesn’t that make you long for the pre-pandemic days when you can freely wander around the metro and dine where you wish?

Well, take heart, dear foodie! Your prayers have been answered, especially if you live in the boroughs of Malate or Paranaque because a GrabKitchen has opened in your area!

You can expect the GrabKitchen in your area to greatly expand the number of excellent food options in your community, available for takeout or delivery. For true-blue foodies stuck at home, this means a wider selection of gastronomic adventures are just a few phone taps away!

Plus, we can now mix and match our favorite dishes by cross-ordering from GrabKitchen’s partner restaurants, all with just one delivery fee!

Take my fam’s totally Japanese meal today, for instance. By ordering from GrabKitchen Paranaque, I was able to grab my favorite Japanese dishes from two different restaurants: Kyoto Sushi Bake and Omakase!

Kyoto Sushi Bake

Kyoto Sushi Bake built on the sushi bake craze at the start of the pandemic and made its mark on this quarantine food trend by offering gourmet variants such as Unagi, Cream Cheese Tuna and Baked Kani with Sweet Corn.

Today, I treated the fam (especially my sushi bake-loving daughter) to a Crazy Maki Sushi Bake (Php500). This tribute to the California Maki is made with sushi rice topped with a delectable combination of sliced mango and kani finished with masago (roe), Japanese mayo, nori and crunchy tempura flakes.

It is best enjoyed with a glass of refreshing Kraver’s house-blend Iced Tea (Php59).

Omakase

Since 2002, Omakase has been satisfying the tastebuds of Japanese food lovers with authentic and fusion dishes.

Its name is actually a phrase used when ordering sushi in restaurants – Omakase which means “I’ll leave it up to you” – when customers leaves the selection of food up to the chef.

Here in the metro, Omakase is the home of imaginatively crafted sushi, made by combining textures and flavors of various ingredients into a cohesively tasty dish as exemplified by my orders of Omakase Roll (Php315), made with torched salmon, crabstick and cucumber, and Dynamite Roll (Php345), made with unagi tempura and tuna.

GrabFood unveils the first GrabKitchen in the Philippines

It is the best of times; it is the worst of times to be a foodie.

It is the best because of the sheer number of dining choices and cuisines available in the metro.

It is the worst because all these infernal traffic jams deter people from making the trip to explore new restaurants or discover new favorites.

Well, mobile app-based delivery services GrabFood have proved to be a boon to Metro Manila’s dining public by eliminating the need to traverse the city’s congested streets just to dine out. Thanks to GrabFood, a whole slew of cuisines can be delivered to be enjoyed by consumers wherever they are.

Today, GrabFood introduced another innovation: the first ever GrabKitchen in the country.

GrabKitchen offers users in a particular geography a variety of curated food selections from one central kitchen. By leveraging data from historical orders to address cuisine gaps, and working with its merchant partners who want to expand their delivery footprint, GrabKitchen bridges consumer demand and availability of food selections. For merchant partners and MSMEs, GrabKitchen is a cost-efficient way to expand the geographic area they serve and reach more consumers using technology. Cloud kitchens can also lower the cost of operations by eliminating high capital investments like rental costs, which is one of the most expensive expensive expansion constraints for merchant partners.

Bringing together some of the most sought-after food brands, and the ability to mix-and-match orders, GrabFood through its GrabKitchen innovation is guaranteed to make group ordering more exciting.

Together with my fellow foodies, I witnessed the grand opening of the country’s first GrabKitchen in Glorietta 2, featuring its merchant partners Omakase, Mister Kabab, 24 Chicken, Recovery Food and Frank & Dean – all of which do not have a physical store in Makati City, and CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice that has seen a significant increase in sales, prompting it to expand its delivery-only operations in GrabKitchen.

The Philippines’ first GrabKitchen offers on-demand delivery and in-store dining through a unique digital experience via a self-order kiosk. GrabFood users who order through the app will also be able to mix and match orders from all partner merchants.

To support more shared moments, exclusive food bundles as Awesome Twosome Bun-deal offer, which has 24 Chicken’s Boneless 7 pieces chicken, Coco Fresh Tea & Juice’s 3 Buddies Milk Tea and Omakase’s California Maki are also available for online delivery for a limited time.

Consumers can also score discounts on all GrabKitchen bundles by using promo codes GKBUNDEAL60 and GKBUNDEAL100 from February 12 to 29.

GrabKitchen was first introduced in Indonesia in 2018 and has since become the largest regional cloud kitchens operator in Southeast Asia. GrabKitchen has over 50 branches in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines.

During GrabKitchen’s grand opening, GrabFood Head EJ Dela Vega shared some of the company’s plans for this new venture.

“Within the next six months, hopefully, we can do two to three more. We are definitely working on opening a few more locations,” he shared. “We want to go where the demand is, where we can fulfill, where we see the gaps in what people are looking for versus what’s available.”

Mindful of the important role that food plays in bringing more shared moments, GrabFood, through its campaign called ‘Masarap ‘pag sama-sama,’ offers consumers a more accessible and affordable way to enjoy group dining.
