You Will Love This Artsy And Proudly Pinoy Pub In Poblacion!

Poblacion is the fastest growing community for food and art in the metro today. Aside from locals, many foreigners and expatriates visit the area for a unique food experience. If you want an authentic Pinoy night-out experience, Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli is the place to be!

Alamat is a place in Poblacion where diners can taste the most loved local dishes and beer from all over the country. It came about when a group of childhood friends decided to put up an all-Filipino pub of their own.

“We realized that so many awesome local ingredients and products aren’t really given much attention to. We highlight local dishes because we want people to appreciate them in a really enjoyable way,” shares pub co-owner Cassie Laus.

In English, the word “alamat” means legend or stories. Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli’s name is a wordplay between “kwento” and “amats” (tipsy) as the pub aims to tell stories of our heritage and culture over good beers and drinks. Handpicked by Chef Niño Laus, the dishes they put out are derived from different tribal dishes in the country.

“We have the most number of craft beers on tap, that is 15 to be exact. We’ve chosen the best craft beers from brewers all around the Philippines. You need not travel around the country to try them,” explains Cassie.

Independent artists and musicians of different genres also play at the pub. The likes of Dong Abay, Basti Artadi, and Barbie Almalbis have already performed at Alamat.

The interiors of Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli represent the Filipino culture. While the main inspiration for the look were old Filipino houses, its interiors lean toward a more eclectic and artsy appeal. A bar made out of an old jeepney greatly captures the Filipino culture, while accessories like the T’nalak fabric pillows, Mindanaoan warrior weapons, and KKK flags along the balcony all the more heighten it.

“Many people say our bar is homey and unpretentious and that’s exactly what we want for our guests to experience over a great selection of craft beer and good food,” Cassie says. Visit Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli for the finest local dishes and best craft beers in the country!

Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli is located at 2/F 5666 Don Pedro St. Barangay Población, Makati
