Restrooms (or lack thereof) in restos

I am a retiree who spends most of my time visiting malls as a form of leg-and-lung exercise. And for practical reasons, I take my lunch or dinner in the mall whenever necessary. I have therefore had the experience of observing that most fast-food chains like McDonald’s, Jollibee, ChowKing, KFC and Mang Inasal (to name a few popular ones) do not have separate lavatories for their customers who crowd these places every business hour of the day, 24/7—be they located in SM Megamall, North or Fairview or elsewhere in Metro Manila.

A different world and time

By

You enter XO46 Bistro Filipino on Valero Street in Salcedo Village, Makati, through a gate and across a pocket garden with a garden set. The few steps to the restaurant’s door give you just enough time to transition from the hustle and bustle of the Central Business District to the refined and genteel world waiting inside.
