Greenhills has always had a reputation for being the best place to get cheap steals, but with the opening of the new Promenade wing, it is also fast becoming a dining destination. With everything from the essential Filipino to Peruvian peri-peri, here are a few newly opened, and soon-to-open restaurants in the revamped mall.
One of the newer establishments in the new wing of Promenade, Roots Market Bistro is easily noticed because of how stunning its minimalist exterior looks. As a market bistro, Roots uses the farm-to-table concept from Chef Chris Oronce and Bryan Tiu from Wafu. It serves American and European dishes, and bases its menu on fresh produce and protein found in the local markets. Check out our review of Roots here.
2. Sariwon Korean Barbecue
Sariwon is best known for its beef bulgogi. But more than their bulgogi, Sariwon is also home to many traditional Korean dishes. Like other Korean barbecue places, customers get to cook their own meat, but unlike others, Sariwon’s technology is smokeless. No need to worry about smelling smoky here.
3. La Famiglia Little Italy
Priding itself on authentic Italian food, Little Italy’s menu consists of the basic Italian favorites such as pasta, pizza, and a whole lot more. Their menu definitely provides you with vast options that might seem pricey, but the sizes are definitely fit for a small family.

Tampopo’s specialties are the Deluxe Tampopo Black Pig Shobu Ramen and the Top Grade Black Pig Tonkatsu.
Meaning “beautiful” in Japanese, Yumi is another Japanese restaurant in Promenade. However, Yumi’s Japanese niche is more contemporary than traditional, but still aims to serve beautiful dishes. It has the beloved ramen and katsu, but also sashimi, sushi, donburi, and other modern and classic dishes.
