A branch of Gerry’s Grill, an acclaimed Filipino eatery, is headed to Westfield Plaza Bonita. Founded in Quezon City in 1997, it’s a certifiable hit in the Philippines and now counts more than 130 branches worldwide, including Singapore and Quatar. There are three outposts in the United States; the closest is located just southeast of Los Angeles in Artesia.
Known as a family-friendly restaurant with large communal tables and shareable platters of food, Gerry’s menu features grilled items like squid, chicken skewers, and beef ribs as well as classic Filipino dishes ranging from sizzling plates of sisig to stewed bicol express and crispy pata, or deep-fried pork knuckles. The National City restaurant (located on Level 2 of the mall) will hold 180 diners and should open this August. Gerry’s Grill rep Jay Diaz tells Eater that the company will be flying in its own kitchen staff from the Philippines to ensure the consistency of its offerings.
