The filling station fronts about ten feet. The sign painted on the glass says “Breakfast Served All Day” I walked by many times wondering what that might be, since, as you look inside you see a four foot counter and some steps to the left. I ignored it.
This morning I slept through the free buffet breakfast in my hotel so I looked inside the Filling Station. The steps turned behind the small counter and led upstairs. WOW! If you are into 50’s and 60’s memorabilia this place is a dream. The actual restaurant is very large and the ceiling does not have an uncovered inch with everything you can imagine hanging from it. There are reconditioned gas pumps, appliances, motorcycles, bicycles and more than one could imagine placed here and there around the floor. The wait staff is dressed like soda jerks or the red checked dresses of the fifties. There is a large lass wall looking down at the main street and off the the side is a door to an adjoining Italian restaurant.
The menu is extensive and the food was excellent. If you are visiting the “entertainment district” of Makati in the Philippines, don’t pass “The Filling Station” by.
