Different choices of microwaved rice meals at cheap prices, as well as drinks could be had in 7-11 or Mini-stop which now has "Toppers" - rice toppings priced at P52 or P75 if with Lipton Iced Tea. Choices include Bicol Express, Liempo, Dinuguan, sisig, chicken adobo, menudillo and beef caldereta. How's that for options? Mini-Stop and Seven-Eleven (7-11) are open 24 hours.
There's even a coffee shop (Kopiroti) and a Japanese restaurant (Raku). More peso to spare? Try the italian restaurant Andiamo! But even Andiamo is now competitive, advertising value meals - but don't hold your breath for that: their value Beef Stroganoff, Beef Salpicao, and Chicken Cordon Bleu are priced at P249 "all-in"! Their breakfast deals include Beef Tapa, Corned Beef, and tocino at P149 each. Halo halo costs P95. Beef noodle is P150, chicken noodle is P130.
Shakey's Pizza recently opened, located at the extreme corner of the food court, just beside the new Pancake House. A Mister Donut shop stands beside Kopiroti. At the opposite corner, Yellow Cab stands along Dimsum and Dumplings which offers inexpensive rice meals at P79 (with choices that include Chicken Mushroom, Braised Beef, Spareribs, Patatim, Ampalaya, and my favorite - Chicken Curry). Raku (Hokkaido Ramen House) enjoys almost-full capacity these days so food must be good here. Just beside it is the minimalist, Cowan Asian Express. Flanked between Cowan and Andiamo is Kenny Roger's Roasters.
Illy Coffee Bar with their comfy red sofa set. (above and below) There's another stall of Illy Coffee Shop - "Espressamente" - at the pre-departure area (where gates 131-133 are).
7-11. I could swear there isn't this much choice at my nearest 7-11. They also serve inexpensive Fried Chicken pieces which can be served with rice if you want to.
Minimalist "Andiamo!" - pasta, pizza, pannini! One of the few fine dining places at the 3rd floor outside the pre-departure hall. It offers more space - and solitude - at the opposite side.

Kopiroti's smaller space located just beside the escalator. Their "bigger" branch - called KR Express" - is located inside the pre-departure area.
