I like their pistachio and fig macarons. They have a traditional deli and pate counter, integrated as part of the supermarket, that can rival the prices of other popular delis in the metro. They also import a good variety of different cheeses to complete the gourmet shopping experience.
There is even a corner that has shelves and shelves of different types of bread. One of the biggest sections is the Fresh Section, featuring imported and specialty fruits and vegetables…. A wide selection of Highland vegetables…. There is a good array of organic and aeroponic vegetables as well. The assortment is quite impressive, and I do hope they are able to maintain it over time. Best of all, you can avail of the Fruit Carving services for free if you want to entertain at home. You can also choose from an extensive variety of rice like brown rice, red rice, organic options, etc.
Various kinds of tater cuts will delight the kids. The supermarket also has local meat options for everyday cooking. There are also marinated meats, ready to cook at home. The fresh seafood display showcases the abundant fishes in the Philippines. They also present the fishes very well sliced with the fish heads. I was impressed with the variety of local yummy delicacies you can only get if you travel to the different provinces.
Durian products from Davao, and…. Finally, a supermarket that carries a good assortment of local and imported beers at the right price! One of the highlights of the SM Aura Supermarket: This section is well-lighted compared to the other areas of the supermarket.
You can enjoy shopping for Asian products,. Although, there was no Speculoos yet on opening day. They also carry a good variety of organic products scattered across the supermarket. It would be nice to convert the International section to ala Whole Foods — organic section so that all the organic products are accessible in one area. There are organic juices in the imported products section. They also have organic berries in the frozen section….
For dessert, we found Bambino Cones! SM Aura also has premium wines and brandy, like this pricey Camus Cuvee 5. Even the eating stalls outside the supermarket have upgraded, clean-looking booth designs. Chatime opened its 29th store just outside the SM Supermarket. After shopping for groceries, let me tour you around the SM Aura Mall.
SM Aura showcases its flagship stores like Uniqlo and…. Forever 21, which occupies the whole first floor block that is visible along 26th Street. For balikbayans , you can shop for Filipino pasalubong in the SM Supermarket and Filipino traditional souvenirs in Kultura on the 3rd level. She is considered a fashion idol by many style-savvy Filipinas.

It has an urban vibe and…. When we were there, the most popular stalls were the Pepper Lunch booth and…. Read Related Blog Post: Brasas Latin American Street Food. The 5th floor will also house signature restaurant concepts and resto brand extensions like Lugang Cafe,.
La Trattoria by Chef Chris, and…. Congratulations to Happy Lemon for beating all the other restos in opening on the 5th floor on the Grand Opening day. Happy Lemon, I Like!

Looking forward to visiting that mall when I go home!
And my fave Bundaberg is available in the supermarket! We have bought spoiled meat from SM Supermarkets more than once so we have stopped patronising SM for frozen goods. To me, SM stands for quantity and not quality. Is the building still unfinished? Just got back from there. The 2 popular restaurants in the food court were popular because they are the ONLY 2 restaurants in the food court, haha. What the deal there? Are they still building more? We walked to Market Market to eat M2 will always have that advantage I believe.
Traffic is going to be another issue. I jumped out of the taxi on 26th street and just walked the rest of the way there. Thank you Anton for writing this. So they had SJP… displaying Manta Rays… they must be animal friendly… hope they have an adequate horse-staple for Sarah, not that they have to kill her and display like the Manta … disgusting. I use a Canon 6D with L lens. Latest update on the Stingray from Noem Lardizabal-Dado momblogger: The sting ray is not real.
The manta ray incident just shows how stupid and insensitive SM really is. All they care about is profit. They are in the best position to do what is right for the environment, instead they choose to ignore the issue.
Chopping pine trees, selling manta rays and other threatened marine species, exacerbating traffic, building dense condominiums, this is your branding SM. The BGC community was a utopia of some sort with most people following traffic rules both pedestrian and vehicular… now with an influx of people just because of SM, we see people jay walking everywhere. The design is totally tasteless specially the interior.
SM Aura looks impressive. SM will always be SM. Salespeople will still follow you around and be obstrusive. Feeling more binabantayan kasi shoplifter ka. Landmark supermarket has had an impressive assortment of international beers for a few years now since their big renovation, and priced very fairly. The supermarket of Market! Unless the end result that the SM group wishes to achieve here is to invite the broader market here in the hopes that the more aspirational status that SM Aura brings will alter their purchasing behavior as well as their lifestyle preferences.
I have to agree with everyone else though that SM has no thought whatsoever with the thoughtlessness of just building and building without considering the environment.
They should learn how to stop at some point or else our country will turn into one huge SM. More malls like this just translates to more shallow Filipinos who find happiness in a concrete structure. Get out, experience the Philippines and support locals.
I hope they can coordinate with the local government for traffic management. I tried grocery shopping there today. As featured in Shopping Guide for Manila. Powered by Weather Underground.
