Located just in SM by the bay, Charaptor is accessible for mall goers and those driving and looking for a grilling experience. It's perfect for thosse who would like to hang out with friends or family celebrations. It can comfortably accomodate about 20+ groups at the same time and they have a separate outside dining for those who would like to drink or smoke.The place smelled like grill of course! Upon entry, you’ll be welcomed by lots of food and it’s nice to know that they refill everything from time to time. Aside from that, each table has a proper exhaust, so it doesn’t smoke that much even when you are inside the restaurant.


To start of with, they have fried rice and the plain rice. You may also try their cheesy pasta, kare-kare, sisig, some stir fried vegetables and their fritters. They also have the famous maki and tempura aside from the vast choices of meat for grilling. 

To end your meal are desserts that includes chocolate balls, coffee jelly, graham and buko pandan. If you are on the sweet and cold tooth side, you may also create your own banana split just get a scoop of ice cream! 

Here's some of the meat that you can grill in Charaptor: pork, chicken, fish, squid, mussels, squid balls and even bacon wrapped chili! They also have our favorite Filipino ‘turo-turo’ like the isaw (chicken and pork intestines).   

I'm happy to see satay like meats on stick at the area! There's even different flavors of sausages!

Ella's Recommendations

1. We came on a dinner time and were assisted in no time. They have plenty of customers but the place could accommodate a lot of people at the same time so there’s nothing to worry. I’m also glad to know that I don't need to line up for a long time.

2. Bring around 1000 pesos if you'd like to enjoy the unli grill experience and a little amount if you suddenly want to drink!

  1. Hello Mel,
    Thanks for the feature. Though, the correct address of this is not "SM Mall of Asia by thr bay", rather, "SM by the BAY".

    It is one of the 3 malls in the MOA Complex. We have S Maison (first two levels of Conrad Hotels), SM Mall of Asia (the big mall you know), and SM by the BAY (outdoor mall beside Manila Bay).

    Thank you.

    1. Hi! Thanks for the heads up! I already edited it ♥

  3. These types of makers must create a clear ice that can last longer on any kind of drink. cookie scoop
