Wider dining space and more food options.

The 390-square-meter store has a dining area that can accommodate up to 40 diners. Besides the usual snacks and drinks stacked on the shelves, the store also offers a variety of food items that you wouldn’t normally see at convenience stores. At the counter, they offer an expanded menu of breakfast choices that include the tapsilog, yang chow meals, and a variety of healthy options like fresh vegetable salads and wraps. Another exclusive at the store is their thin-crust pizza which is available in Supremo, Hawaiian, Four Cheese, and Pepperoni flavors.

For folks looking for liquor, the store’s beer room is a walk-in chiller packed with local and imported beers and spirits that you can drink inside the premises from 7PM onwards at the dining area or in one of the function rooms. This makes the store a new BGC spot for a chill drink after a long day’s work. The store is also equipped with clean restrooms so no one needs to worry about taking their time within the premises.

Japanese cuisine specialties.

The FamilyMart at Udenna Tower also takes advantage of its Japanese roots through a rich array of Japanese food items. Here, they offer Onigiri (P55) or Japanese rice balls that are beautifully blanketed with fresh nori and filled with delectable flavors like Salmon, Tuna, Tori Mix, Spam, and Tinapa.

They also offer here bowls of hot Ramen with complementary drinks for only P165! Check out their dedicated ramen station and take your pick between their Tonkotsu, Tantanmen, and Miso varieties.

Unlike the other branches that serve Donburi meals with Filipino food-inspired flavors, this FamilyMart’s Donburi meals are faithful to the authentic Japanese fix, and you can choose between the Pork Yakiniku, Gyudon, and Katsudon to pair with their hefty serving of Japanese rice. Meanwhile, stacked on their chiller are more Jap-cuisine favorites including a variety of maki and bento meals.
