Nonie’s for southies: Boracay’s fresh take on feel good food is now in Alabang

Metro Manila foodies can now have Nonie’s signature fluffy pancakes, sticky pork ribs, tempeh kare-kare and prawn curry—with a side of island vibe.

Boracay culinary destination Nonie’s recently set up shop at Molito Lifestyle Center in Alabang, serving its fresh take on food to urbanites. The restaurant, which has built a following among the island’s habitues since opening seven years ago, is known for its commitment to locally sourced, sustainably produced Filipino-inspired cuisine.

While the new restaurant’s elevated Filipiniana design departs slightly from the rustic look of the Boracay branch, they stay true to their core values of inclusivity, sustainability, and the celebration of Filipino flavors.

“After seven years of growth and evolution, we felt it was time for an update—a fresh, new look that reflects our journey and vision,” says Derrick Perez, head chef of Nonie’s. “We wanted to maintain our focus on locally sourced ingredients and Filipino-inspired cuisine while enhancing the overall dining experience.”

Among the must-tries are appetizers such as their Vegan Sisig, fresh-catch Ceviche, and the Jackfruit Dip, signature mains like their Cavite-style Chicken and Pork Adobo that is made with 72-hour Crispy Pork Belly and Flame-grilled Chicken, Nonie’s Pork BBQ Bowl, Bistek Tagalog, and Sticky Pork Ribs.

Vegetarians will enjoy the Tempeh Kare-Kare that comes in a luscious cashew sauce. Those looking to take the spice route can try Tuna Rolls appetizers and the Fish and Prawn Curry which bring on the island heat.  Sweet treats are available in the form of their Flourless Chocolate Cake and the Nonie’s Halo-Halo which is just perfect for the metro’s heat index.

For those who want to experience a tropical escape right after leaving the office, there are craft cocktails that come with an island vibe. These include their take on the classic margarita which uses kamias in lieu of limes, their ube drink called The Malaya, a Pinya Mimosa, and their ode to their new location, the Alabang Pina Colada that fuses sake, fresh pineapple juice, homemade pineapple cordial, coconut milk, and pandan syrup.     

“Whether you’re a vegan, pescatarian, or simply appreciate good food made with love, Nonie’s has something for you. We’re excited to share our passion for honest, hearty cuisine with the Alabang community,” Chef Derrick says.

Nonie’s Molito Lifestyle Center is open from 10 am to 10 pm from Monday to Friday and 8 am to 10 pm from Saturday to Sunday to take care of your cravings for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.
