El Chupacabra

Mexican in Manila

Bringing the Mexican street-food craze to Makati, El Chupacabra is a grungy open-air taqueria cooking up a mouthwatering selection of soft corn tortilla tacos. Go for the spicy chipotle shrimp or sisig (sizzling grilled pork) tacos. It's wildly popular so expect to wait in the evenings (no reservations). Grab a margarita in the meantime.

There's a new air-conditioned room at the back – especially welcome during lunchtime when the heat really builds up on Felipe St.
