Poblacion used to be known as the Red Light district, but in recent years there has been a change, it’s now known as a haven for backpackers, travelers, and locals alike. If you’re looking for local restaurants and a vibrant bar scene. It’s the place to go.
Right on Don Pedro Street lies Yalla Yalla, a Lebanese On-the-go concept restaurant.
In Lebanese, Yalla Yalla means “hurry up”. Everything is meant to be eaten quickly or on the go. Lebanese food uses the Seven Spice Blend that is a mixture of equal parts of allspice, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, fenugreek, nutmeg, and ginger. These ingredients together make their food tasty and full of flavor.
Their menu is straight forward, order your beef or chicken in a wrap or on a bed of rice. It’s unassuming but packs a punch.
Chicken Shawarma Wrap (125 PHP) Their chicken pieces were so rich in flavor that was complimented by the assortment of vegetables present in the wrap. The icing on the cake was the Toum, it is a creamy garlic lemon sauce or shawarma sauce. To add a bit of bite, you can also add Shata, their version of hot sauce.
Beef Shawarma on Rice (185 PHP) The sliver of beef pieces was perfectly seasoned and strong in flavor. All the elements of the platter worked perfectly together. The best thing about this is there is absolutely no trace is preservatives in their meat. Their Toum and Shata sauce was just a perfect combination to add to this shawarma platter.
Yalla Yalla is perfect after a night out when you find yourself craving bold flavors and something meaty. They deliver in bringing in the big flavors in an on-the-go package.
