NoKal: North of Kalayaan (Poblacion, Makati)

NoKal (a.k.a. “North of Kalayaan”), is a relatively new spot in the heart of Poblacion. Conceptualized by Marco Viray, NoKal joins the family of cool places to hang in Poblacion alongside Ebi10, Kampai and Joe’s Brew.

NoKal has 3 floors and they currently feature retro fast food style offerings on the first floor:
