FILLING STATION. The name seems to refer to a gas station but it actually refers to the historic 50’s type diner located at 5012 P. Burgos St. in Makati.

The restaurant is the brainchild of an ex-US navy chief cook who decided not to move back to the US when the base contract was not renewed. He resolved to put up a place similar to the diners in the 50’s in the United States complete with posters from that era, an oil barrel, and 50’s type working telephones, 50’s type radios, television sets and movies. It opened in 1997. Read more from their website.CUFZ5421
