MANILA, Philippines – Situated within the confines of The Grove by Rockwell, The Grove Retail Row evolves into a hub of new concepts to look forward to. Densely populated with restaurants, service establishments, and a supermarket, The Grove Retail Row caters to Grove residents and non-residents alike.
Last year, several restaurants opened in the area. Asakusa Home of Tempura, an authentic Japanese restaurant specializing in fresh and crispy tempura, was first to jump-start the series of tenant openings at the Retail Row. It was followed by BurgerPub, a burger joint offering mouth-watering prime beef burgers and the best of local and imported beers. Backyard Kitchen and Brew, which has gained a steady following for its uncompromising farm-to-table freshness, also opened last October. Last November, Om Indian Kitchen, with its spicy samosas and sumptuous biryanis, has tickled foodies’ tastebuds. Precynct also continues to generate buzz with its definitive specialty blends and unique and well-crafted small plate meals.
The newest retail concepts continue to serve up various kinds of cuisines for die-hard foodies to enjoy. For one, Alley puts their artisanal stamp on classic dishes like the reuben, carbonara, and the grilled cheese pimiento. Everything from the pasta noodles to the pickles are made in-house for guaranteed freshness!
The Gardens has also opened its doors to the Grove and nearby residents. For those who have a hankering for healthy but hearty meals, The Gardens may just make you fall in love again. From natural and fresh-pressed juices to their take on brunch favorites like the Benedict Crisp Prosciutto and Roasted Squash, Garlic Angus Beef Salpicao, and Louisiana Shrimps,The Gardens hits the spot with extensive offerings of well-balanced meals.
Pi Breakfast and Pies plates up breakfast meals with a twist for families and friends to enjoy no matter the time of day! Think imaginative dishes like Caramelized Spam on a bed of garlic rice and a five minute egg topped with kimchi and pesto, a surprisingly complementary symphony of flavors. Other must-tries are their show-stopping pies, pastries, and desserts with indulgent ingredients like ricotta, gruyere, and Nutella in the mix.
The Grove Retail Row also offers essential conveniences. Last December, Rustan’s Supermarket opened its door a few steps away from The Grove and nearby residents, giving them the full convenience that they need with its complete selection of fresh food and everyday essentials.
The Village Barber & Supply Shop is the newest barbershop at The Grove. Unlike run-of-the-mill barber shops, The Village Barber & Supply Shop takes grooming to the next level with its skilled barbers, Samurai scissors, and feather blades. They also offer an array of grooming merchandise and products suited for a true gentleman.
Housekeeping Place has also opened at the Retail Row. Drop by, and leave all your housekeeping worries with one of their well-trained housekeepers. From keeping you living space clean to laundry, Housekeeping Place takes care of the minute details of city living so you can focus on the more important things in life.
More establishments are set to complete the Retail Row soon. Everyone’s all-time favorite ice cream parlor, Cold Stone Creamery, will be the neighborhood’s go-to spot for all sorts of frozen desserts. Victor Ortega Salon, one of the city’s most established salons, will offer a wide variety of hair and beauty services. Aruga, Rockwell’s signature serviced apartments, is slated to open soon and within the same block.
With a passion to make every customer feel at home, Aruga at The Grove is a haven for busy travelers. Aruga offers a range of accommodations, ranging from studio to 2-bedroom suites with pool and gym amenities, a breakfast lounge, multiple function rooms and a business center. It is designed to be the perfect destination for seasoned travelers who are accustomed to bright, spacious interiors and exceptional service amidst lush greenery.
