Best Marikina Eats (Goto, Pandesal, and more!)

Marikina is famous for being the “Shoe Capital of the Philippines” and it is also known to have some of the best food finds in the city. We talked to the Marikenyos who built some of the most treasured culinary gems in their hometown to learn more about their history and the inspiration behind their signature dishes.

From the regional specialty Waknatoy, to the best bowls of goto, Marikina is an underrated food haven that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Did we mention that you can also find an OG panaderya in Marikina that’s been serving the softest pandesal since the 1950s? This is a food trip that you won’t forget, so stay with us until the end for the full list!
