Starting May 2024, diners in Pampanga can enjoy Manamโ€™s all-day classics and twists as The Moment Group brings its home-grown comfort Filipino restaurant to SM City Clark.

In 2013, Manam opened its very first shop in Makati City as a space for diners to feel at home and find comfort in shared meals of familiar and reimagined Filipino fare. The Moment Groupโ€™s Filipino concept has always dreamed of extending this sense of homeyness through food to more diners around the country.

With 10 years and over 20 shops under its belt, it continues to make strides towards this vision by bringing its unique brand of dining and hospitality to new neighborhoods and destinations in and out of Metro Manila. The latest milestone on this journey: the restaurantโ€™s foray into the Philippinesโ€™ culinary center with Manam SM City Clark, which opened for dine-in, takeaway, and delivery in May 2024

Manam SM City Clark is Manamโ€™s 25th shop and 3rd regional outpost. It serves the restaurantโ€™s full, supersized menu of distinctly Filipino flavors presented in two major parts: Classics and Twists. Classics include Manamโ€™s renditions of traditional and familiar Filipino recipes, such as the rich and savory Kare-kare with Oxtail, the crunchy and creamy Gising Gising, and the scrumptious Crispy Pata with Garlic Chili Bits.

Thereโ€™s also the House Crispy Sisig, Manamโ€™s homage to the Kapampangan favorite, made with extra crispy chunks of pork topped with a special sour-savory sauce and chicharon bits. Twists, on the other hand, are reinvented takes on recognizable flavors, such as the Sinigang na Beef Short Rib and Watermelon, which contains bits of watermelon that lend a mild sweetness to the traditionally sour broth.

This side of the Manam menu also includes the restaurantโ€™s famous Ube + Sago Pampalamig, a tasty shake made with purple yam, coconut cream, and chewy tapioca pearls that not only makes a great companion to any Manam ulam, but also makes for a delicious dessert that can be
enjoyed on its own.

Not to be missed is the Crispy Pancit Palabok, Manamโ€™s take on the classic noodle
dish, made of crunchy glass noodles that โ€œmeltโ€ when doused with hot, thick, classic palabok shrimp sauce, a favorite among diners not only for its flavor, but also for its unique presentationโ€”itโ€™s gained popularity on social media and has even been featured in New York City-based online publication, Insider.

Manam SM City Clark carries the restaurantโ€™s full minatamis at kakanin selection, featuring iconic Filipino pastries and desserts which, in true Manam fashion, have been reimagined for the modern Filipino diner.

These include the wonderfully sweet and tangy Calamansi Tart, the delightful Buko Pie, the crowd favorite Puto Bumbong with Muscovado Butter, and three kinds of Bibingka.


Save for the pampalamigs or shakes, pang-almusal, and minatamis at kakanin, all of Manamโ€™s dishes come in three sizes (small, medium, and large), so thereโ€™s sure to be a serving fit for every party size, from solo diners to large groups and families. Guests can enjoy all of these and more in a bright and cozy dining space decked with Manamโ€™s signature collages against a palette of teal, brown, and brass.

The shopโ€™s color scheme and artworks mirror the brandโ€™s warm, contemporary vibe, creating the ideal setting for leisurely and memorable brunches, lunches, meriendas, and dinners.

โ€œWe are always so happily surprised by how we have been received each time weโ€™ve opened our doors in different neighborhoods. We are excited to welcome diners in Clark this time around and to give them a taste of our own menu of classics and reimagined recipes, which have become favorites of both local and visiting diners across Manamโ€™s various locations,โ€ says Abba Napa, restaurateur and Moment co-founder.

In the process of innovating dishes, as well as the manner in which they are presented, Manam has become a go-to for families and friends seeking a uniquely malinamnam and modern Filipino dining experience. It has also been hailed by multiple publications as a must-visit for balikbayans and foreigners alike.

As the restaurant embarks on a new decade, it remains steadfast in its mission to uphold Philippine cuisine by introducing new and different ways to enjoy it.

Manamโ€™s foray into a region with such a rich and respected cultural heritage like Pampanga is an important and welcome step towards this goal. โ€œWeโ€™ve been so fortunate to share meals and create memories with our patrons throughout these first 10 years. We look forward to that happening for us and our guests in Clark as well,โ€ shares Napa. โ€œItโ€™s quite an honor for Manam to be part of this burgeoning community thatโ€™s the center of tourism and culture in the region. To be able to support that with the dining experience we champion would be a dream come true.โ€
