Prepare for the inauguration of the mall and keep an eye out for these fresh new food options at the City of Firsts.

 Restaurant Collection 

Araneta City expands its selection of dining options with restaurants owned by Chef Margarita Fores and her family to open as part of Gateway Mall 2’s Restaurant Collection. The renowned culinary clan brings their unique brand of scrumptious dishes to the City of Firsts with a mano, Mamou, and Grace Park. 

There are also other restaurants to watch out for. Savor the finest steaks, burgers, and other grilled favorites at Wolfgang Steakhouse Grill. Sate your longing for comfort food with beloved signature Pinoy dishes of Abe, and Cochi Bistro.

And for coffee lovers, UCC Park Café and Starbucks Coffee will open their branches in the new mall’s hard-to-miss location. 

Coliseum Plaza 

More choices are made available in Araneta City, especially to patrons of Smart Araneta Coliseum. Located just a few steps away from the Big Dome's Red Gate entrance is the Coliseum Plaza, which hosts a variety of options to satisfy any type of craving in one convenient spot. 

Put a savory punch to your coliseum experience by enjoying some good meals and snacks from Shake Shack and Mo’s Burger, Hong Kong dim sum at Tim Ho Wan, Pinoy comfort fare at Manam and Nono’s, and a drinks and cocktails bar soon.

Restaurants at the Coliseum Plaza offer both indoor and outdoor seating, giving customers more options on how they want to enjoy their dining experience.


Mallgoers who long for dishes from their respective hometowns don't need to go far, as Gateway Mall 2 will feature a food crawl called Palenque – a Pinoy-themed food arena with the best-of-the-best in Filipino food heritage.  

At Palenque, diners can do a “food crawl” through a selection of signature cuisine native and unique to every province or region in the Philippines and prepared by celebrated chefs in their own inimitable way. Check out Bale Dutung of Chef Claude Tayag, Al Puruganan’s Ilocos cuisine, Chef Tatung’s Cebu offerings and delicacies, Palm Grill from Zamboanga, Sea Salt Davao Grill, Chinoy's Chicken Fandian and more Bacolod delicacies, and offerings like Diwal. 

Behind this exciting food idea is Filipino chef and restaurateur Claude Tayag, who brings his vision and culinary expertise in Philippine gastronomy to the City of Firsts. 

Asian Village 

Foodies looking for a mouthwatering Asian culinary experience also don’t need to go far. Gateway Mall 2 is host to an inviting Asian Village that will showcase the richness of cuisine on this side of the globe. 

Treat yourself to a tour around the region with delicacies from Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Korea, and other Eastern nations, all within the comforts of Araneta City’s new mall.  

More food choices 

Expect an abundance of other exciting dining options when you explore the entirety of the 190,000-square-meter Gateway Mall 2.

Vikings—one of the go-to buffet restaurants of Filipinos—is also set to land on this side of Gateway Mall 2.  

Fans of K-pop and P-pop will also soon experience an interesting concept. K Pop Town and Café, a first in the Philippines, will soon open at Araneta City's newest mall and offer a different type of Korean and local pop experience from what is often offered in the City of Firsts.

Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, and Taco Bell, which are owned by the Araneta Group, will have more locations in Araneta City, including ones in Gateway Mall 2.
