Public Eatery is Robinsons Magnolia’s resident food hall inspired by subway lines that takes you different culinary adventures. It is where the New Manila neighborhood gather over good food. It’s the latest food hall managed by Charles Paw group known for The Grid, and food concepts at the Mitsukoshi Mall Food Court.
We tried all the best sellers in all the stalls and here are our Top 10 food in Public Eatery:
1. 10 TEN by Tsuke-Men
Tsukemen, ramen, and kushiyaki by Tsukemen. Follow on Instagram: @10bytsukemenph
This was the favorite of the family! Everything we ordered, from the richest Tonkotsu Premium Ramen (₱520), Gyokai Tuskemen (₱390), and the Robu Kushiyaki Platter (6 sticks – ₱945), was quite good. Highly recommended. A good place to enjoy good ramen and Japanese food.
2. THOMSON ROAD

This was a Singaporean-inspired favorite in Molito Alabang that finally found its home in Public Eatery. They have the best Jumbo Siomai (₱275), handmade with shrimp, pork, and mushroom. It is quite tasty and can be enjoyed in a few bites. They are also best known for their Char Sui Claypot Rice and Seafood Laksa.
3. SEAFOOD & OYSTER BAR (OB) by Chef Sonny Mariano

We recommend making your own combination. Here are the combinations we enjoyed:
• US Beef Belly (₱490) with American Hickory BBQ, Garlic Adobo Rice, and Mushroom Sisig.
• Salmon Fillet (₱580) with Miso Teriyaki, Kimchi Rice, and Macaroni Salad.
Overall, it is good value for money. The portions are sulit and the taste is good.
Plant-Based Drinks and Goods. Follow on Instagram: @frnkph
FRNK, named after its literal meaning of being frank and honest about their plant-based ingredients, showcases its pilot coffee stall vibe with its innovative cold drink concoctions. We enjoyed the Macca Yuzu (₱145), Baked Purple (₱175), and Kyoto (Dirty Maccha) Latte (₱230). This is the best drink stall in the food hall with interesting combinations and premium ingredients.
6. SAMYAN by Chef Ton
Authentic Thai street food by Chef ThiTid Tassanakajohn of Le Du Bangkok. Instagram: @samyanph
This is the best stall to get your Thai cravings fix with their Crab Pad Thai (₱720) and Crab Fried Rice (₱590). We will definitely go back to this stall to try their other chef specials.
