One of the not so popular but good places to hang around in Metro Manila is Stir Crazy.
I like their food. The food servers are nice. The average price of their main dishes with rice is 120 pesos.
They have gigs usually on Fridays and Saturdays.
If you’re interested of trying out Stir Crazy, it’s located at the ground floor of Tycoon building, Ortigas Center. Tycoon building is situated close to University of Asia and the Pacific which is along Pearl Drive.
