3 Manila Restaurants That Closed Due to the Pandemic

Sending our prayers to help these businesses get back on their feet!

There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected anyone and everyone around the world. While countries are responding to the pandemic as quickly as they could, people, the economy, and the health sector, among others, are still being affected by the pandemic.

One of the major effects that this health crisis has caused is the closure of businesses. Well-loved restaurants, stores that have been patronized by many since time immemorial, and companies that have been long-established were forced to close down and cease operations due to the pandemic.

It is unfortunate that this had to happen, so what we can only do now is reminisce about the good memories we had with these places and pray that the laid-off workers find new sources of income soon. (Rundown: The New Dine-In Rules for Restaurants, Customers, Staff)

This is why we’re listing down some restaurants that unfortunately closed amid the pandemic so you could reminisce and smile at the memories you made.

Gourmet Gypsy, owned by Chef Waya Araos-Wijangco, is a known restaurant in Roces Avenue, Quezon City, and was frequented by customers from all over Metro Manila and nearby provinces and even celebrities.

However, due to the “uncertain economy” brought about by the pandemic, Chef Waya had to choose between the original branch in Roces Avenue or the year-old branch in Maginhawa Street. She ended up choosing to keep the newly-opened branch since it is where Open Hand School—her school for children with special needs—is also located.

Since 1983, Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine has been a family favorite of many when they want to celebrate a special occasion together. But last July, after 37 years of being a venue where families make happy memories together, they announced that they will be closing permanently. The management said that the primary reason is “challenges brought about the pandemic.”

Nokal

A popular bar in Poblacion in Makati, Nokal has been the venue for many friends who are catching up after not seeing each other for so long. They served mouthwatering food up until their closure in July, which regular customers will surely miss. They promised, however, that they will be back “once the timing is right.”
