DENNY'S DINER Philippines: 24/7 All Day Breakfast Favorites! (Revisited)

by Abigail Javellana

Uptown Parade Bites

Founded by Harold Butler, Denny's opened its doors in 1953 with its first store in California. The chain has since grown into 1600 stores located in Canada, Mexico, Latin America, United Arab Emirates, and most recently, the Philippines via The Bistro Group.

Customers love their 24/7 operating hours, friendly service, and hefty servings that are great for sharing and satisfy your breakfast cravings any time of day.

With the positive response to their first Philippines branch in Uptown Mall, Denny's has now expanded all the way to Trinoma and Vista Mall in Sta. Rosa, Laguna in less than six months!

Here's a look-back at our favorites at Denny's and a peak at their new offerings...

NEOLOKAL by Chef Maksut Aşkar at Flame Manila! @DiscoveryPrimea

Neo Lokal as shot by LG G6-4

NEOLOKAL is the Modern Anatolian Museum Restaurant of Chef Maksut Aşkar located in SALT Galata, a cultural institution and exhibition space in Istabul, Turkey

The term "neolokal" is meant to describe the refined family cooking philosophy of the restaurant, based on the roots and traditions of real Anatolian cuisine. "Anatolia" is the old name of Turkey, which refers to Asia Minor or the western side of Asia.

For the first time ever, Manila was able to get a taste of the real flavors of Anatolian cuisine at Flame, Discovery Primea, thanks to Cheryl Tiu's Cross Cultures. 

Here is a photo essay of our educational journey into Turkish cuisine...

How to Build Your Own Solar Lamps? @LiterofLight #SolarLampsforMarawi

Solar Lights.jpg
Liter of Light, is a home-grown, global, grassroots movement that is committed to providing affordable, sustainable solar light to people with limited or no access to electricity.

One of the most common figures in off-grid communities is the kerosene lamp. These lamps provide light to the families at dinnertime and the kids as they study at night. However, these lamps are not the safest sources of light - they pose a grave risk of burning down the household if left unattended.

Illac Diaz, founder of Liter of Light, decided to take this everyday object and convert it into solar lamps. We were given a chance to learn how to make these kerosene lamps into the much safer and sustainable solar lamp, courtesy of Liter of Light.

They provide all materials and equipment necessary to build a solar lamp.
