Join the Manila Social Club

Hi, everyone! Courtney here. I’m hitting you up with another brunch spot that y’all should try. This one’s called Manila Social Club, and it’s based in Brooklyn, NYC. Manila Social Club is a Filipino restaurant that serves both brunch and dinner. In fact, you’ve probably seen their Spam Fries all over Instagram. If not, your heart probably skipped a beat when you learned that they also sell Golden Cristal Ube Donuts for 100 bucks a pop. That’s $1k for a dozen! Cray, cray, right?
