Filling Station: Classic American Diner with a Modern style

by Kevin Bascao - 10:20 PM

What’s up Riverdale fans! I have a feeling that you will like what this blog is about. Well, I have been searching for a local place the same look and feel as Pop’s diner and gladly, I found this dining place in Makati City.
The name of the place is Filling station bar and cafe. It has this 50’s feel and vibe. From various memorabilia like vinyls, photos, statues and other vintage stuff up to the music playlist, they would make you feel as if you are traveling back to the past. A for the effort in terms of the uniform of the crew which I only get to see in old movies. Wow! Overall, I love the ambiance!

Basically, Filling station is an american diner. They are mostly into burgers and fries. But don’t worry, they have included some Filipino and Mexican food in the menu so you have more options to choose from. Prior going here, I was informed by some people that food is a bit pricey. Maybe yes, but there is a very good reason for it. With the quality and amount of serving, the price is just enough if you’re going to ask me. I mean, you get what you paid for. Also, food is good for sharing!

Strawberry milkshake (Riverdale fans, I can hear you!)

Just some random trivia: when milkshake was introduced, it was an alcoholic whiskey drink. It’s only during 1900’s when they referred to it as wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry and vanilla syrups. Eventually, it was served with a new twist by putting ice cream on top.
Maybe some of us prefer the old type of milkshakes. Ha-ha!
Filling station has a designated area for smoking customers. They have billiards (can someone tell me if Pop’s diner has this) and a VIP room, also known as Marilyn’s room. And just like Pop’s diner, they serve iced-cold beer and other alcoholic beverages. It is open 24/7 which is really awesome! You can literally drop by anytime of the day. Either have breakfast with family in the morning or chill with your friends at night, Filling station is a place to be.
