Watching a Game in MOA Arena? Here’s Where You Can Eat

Watching a live sports game can take the energy out of you. So before you head into MOA Arena, here’s where you can eat to fuel up.

Every sports fan knows that watching a game live can take up the entire day. Because let’s face it, the experience is more fun that way — when you meet up with your friends, grab a bite to eat, head in to watch the warm-ups, and then finally, watch the game (and sometimes, you’ll even eat again post-game).

Lucky for us Filipino sports fans, MOA Arena, one of the hot spots for live sports games, offers a lot of places to eat for a pre-game meal or for a post-game celebration. Here are some of The GAME’s top Mall of Asia recommendations.

Tender Bob’s

Watching sports live can be a workout, and you’ll need all the energy you can get beforehand. So if you’re looking for a place to eat heavily (as you should) before walking into MOA Arena to start cheering, go for a meal at Tender Bob’s.

Tender Bob’s has long been known for their steaks, ribs, and burgers, among many other delicious main dishes. Their menu ensures that there will surely be something on the menu for everyone, plus all the carbs you’ll possibly need for fuel. We recommend their bestselling Slow Roasted U.S. Angus Beef Belly (and why not a slice of their apple pie just for that extra sugar rush?).

If you’re craving something a little more local that will go with your Pilipinas jerseys, you can head to Manam in MOA to eat some comforting Filipino food.

Whether you prefer your dishes classically authentic or cooked with a twist, Manam’s got a full menu of Filipino favorites to choose from, like sinigang, adobo, kaldereta, and of course, their famous crispy sisig. Don’t forget to pair your meal with one of their tasty shakes too (we recommend their Mango + Pomelo + Sago shake especially if it’s going to be a hot walk from the mall to the arena).

Tim Ho Wan

Whether you want a light pre-game snack or a heavy post-game dinner, then go for Tim Ho Wan.

You can order small or order big in Tim Ho Wan, choosing from their steamed or deep-fried dumplings, their delicious noodles and soups, or their filling rice meals. Known for their reliable quality and service, you can’t go wrong with this one. And if you’re running late, you can grab a box of their famous pork buns and eat on the way to MOA Arena.

Find Tim Ho Wan on Level 1 of the Mall of Asia Main Mall.

Watching a sports game live in MOA Arena means that sometimes, you don’t have the time to eat in the mall before crossing to the Arena. So if you’re looking for something close to the arena’s entrance, go for Gringo for a fully loaded meal.

Gringo’s meals and platters have more than enough to fuel you up before a big game. We recommend going for their Gringo Original Chicken. The order already comes with your choice of delicious sides, ensuring you a meal worth its value! You surely won’t feel your hunger for some time after this.

Hawker Chan

Looking for something a little bit more out of the ordinary for game day? A trip to MOA Arena might be the perfect excuse to have some Hawker Chan

Hawker Chan is one of the most well-known Singaporean restaurants around the world, renowned for its former Michelin Star. But don’t be fooled by its reputation — the prices are affordable for the great quality of food. We recommend getting their bestseller, the Soya Sauce Chicken Rice. It may just become your new go-to pre-game meal.

Bistro Ravioli

If you want to load up on the carbs, you can’t go wrong with a filling Italian meal. One of the best Italian restaurants in MOA is Bistro Ravioli, where you can eat all the pasta and pizza you’re craving.

Bistro Ravioli’s specialties include their brick oven pizzas and their freshly made pasta. While there is a lot to choose from, we recommend trying one of their ravioli dishes — it is in their name, after all.
