Nightlife, malls, restaurants, topnotch hotels, and business parks – Mandurriao is undeniably one of the major commercial areas in Iloilo City.


Foodies won’t run out of options in this area. If Jaro is known for its small, quick treats such as biscocho and butterscotch, Mandurriao offers full meals that will surely fill the heart and the tummy for a price that won’t break the bank.

Pyt Stop Boodle Fight

Be prepared for a food coma at the Pyt Stop, for example – a diner that is known for the boodle fight. Uniting friends and families through savory goodness, its friendly staff arrange a long stretch of banana leaves on the table with rice, chicken, pancit, grilled fish, lechon kawali, pork barbecue, talaba, grilled squid, shrimp, kinilaw, etc.

Freska 

Diners are given plastic gloves too for the complete boodle experience, so guests have the option to ditch the spoon and fork, and eat with their hands. Another iconic Ilonggo diner that won’t let you out of the restaurant without feeling the food coma is the Hometown Buffet of Freska.

Smallville Complex

It serves popular Ilonggo dishes, such as the Original La Paz Batchoy, Chicken Binacol, KBL (Kadios, Baboy, at Langka), Pizzetas de Molo, and other Pinoy dishes like the all-time favorite Crispy Pata, Chopsuey, Tanigue, and Calamares.


After a day of indulging in good food, cap off the night at the entertainment hub of the city - Smallville Complex. With different chains of clubs, bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and hotels, it has easily emerged as a popular place to stay for both tourists and locals. Beers are sold at an average cost of P50 per bottle, that’s why a lot of travelers and guests favor Iloilo City’s nightlife.

Aside from the great spots within the complex, there are also a number of bars and diners along the more relaxed side of Smallville – the Riverside Boardwalk. Whether travelers are up for food adventure or a fun night, Mandurriao can easily suit all those needs.
