Only a few days before we go on lockdown for the nth time! I can’t even remember when was the last time I got the chance to eat outdoors. Even though I badly miss eating out, it’s still best to be safe during these challenging times so here’s a list of cafes and restos that are within our reach via PayMaya Mall. Just open your PayMaya app, tap the Maya Mall icon, choose Food, and click your chosen restaurant to open their order portals or websites for instant delivery.
Ordering in is made more rewarding with exclusive deals from PayMaya’s partner brands as well. Just last July, they offered huge cashbacks for every purchase and I’m sure that they’ll have more deals coming soon. While there are more than 10 choices in the PayMaya Mall, here are my top picks, which I’ve also already tried and “tasted”:
MUST-TRY: Plant-Based Double Burger (P395)
