Your Gateway 2 the Payday: A Quick Guide to Your Pay Date Without Breaking Your Budget

Hooray! Welcome to the Payday!


Whether you’re a first-time employee or a veteran in your workplace, the 15th and 30th of our lives every month are the days we always look forward to. Seeing ourselves getting compensated for our valuable input gives us a rewarding and refreshing feeling – and at the same time, it motivates us to continue bringing out the best of us for our colleagues, endearing ones, friends, and ourselves.


In treating ourselves to small and big wins at work, Araneta City will always celebrate with us through its variety of choices that satisfy our cravings, not just for food, but also for more victories to share. The latest feature from the City of Firsts, the Gateway Mall 2, is a fancy place to spend our payday night with the dearest and coolest people without breaking our budget in our wallets.


Let’s check these suitable dining picks for your paychecks this cutoff period!

Genki Sushi

UGF-B, Gateway Mall 2, Araneta City, Quezon City


Located on the Upper Ground Floor B of Gateway Mall 2, this Japanese sushi parlor offers its diners a distinctive experience with tap-to-order screens at each table and a bullet train-inspired food serving right at your table.

Nasi by Bale Dutung

Palenque, UGF-B, Gateway Mall 2, Araneta City, Quezon City


From Pampanga with love, this dining space within the Palenque food hall is the brainchild of renowned Filipino chef and food writer, Chef Claude Tayag. His very own Pancit Humba is a one-of-a-kind delicacy that has its exquisite sweet-savory flavor and tenderness of pork humba mixed in the noodles, best partnered with their Kamias Shake.

Marugame Udon

UGF-A, Gateway Mall 2, Araneta City, Quezon City


One of the most popular Japanese fast-casual restaurant chains in the world, Marugame Udon arrived at the Gateway Mall 2 to let us experience their cuisine in full circle, with their wider choices of Udon known for its thick noodles and rice bowls, together with other side dishes and Omusubi. 


Located near the walkway towards Farmers Plaza, MRT3, and the Red Gate (Smart Araneta Coliseum), this resto offers a comfortable dining zone for those going to and from their workplaces and those fans who wear their hearts out before the concert or games begin.


Via Mare Facade Gateway 2

Via Mare

UGF-A, Gateway Mall 2, Araneta City, Quezon City


One of the most well-loved household names among Filipino restaurants, Via Mare takes pride in taking our local platter to the global dining table. Proudly serving at the Upper Ground Floor A of Gateway Mall 2, Via Mare means “Way of the Sea” in Latin. Originally specializing in seafood favorites since its inception as it lives up to its name, it now hosts a wider menu that makes us feel at home. 


In addition, Via Mare consistently turns every day into Christmas vibes with its best-selling Bibingka and Puto Bumbong.

The Matcha Tokyo

Ground Floor, Coliseum Plaza, Gateway Mall 2, Araneta City, Quezon City


It is no coincidence that green is a color that signifies our salary while it also symbolizes health and sustainability. Matcha Tokyo offers a healthier option that enables us to get cozy in the comfort of their matcha drinks and desserts that are truly organic.


Aside from its minimalist interiors, this store has power plug outlets suitable for digital nomads while sipping a cup of their limited edition Matcha Sakura Latte and other soothing beverages in this bloomingly green shop.

What are you waiting for? Head over to Gateway Mall 2 and seize your payday getaway with a fair share of balance in your budget and your appetite!
