The Best Kare Kare in Metro Manila

Kare-Kare is a peanut stew that is loved by Filipinos. The process of slow cooking the delicate oxtail meat and tripe usually takes hours and many attempts to perfect the entire recipe. The beauty of this unassuming brown stew is the complex flavors of the different kinds of vegetables and spices that complement the sweet and savory taste of peanut butter.

While most people would say that their family recipes are the best, we tried a few go-to spots that you can visit on your next craving for Kare Kare. Join Chef Martin on his quest to taste the best of the city!
