Restaurant with No Name in Front of Saguijo

Restaurant with No Name in Front of Saguijo-2

Any true foodie will enjoy this secret place in Makati. In the foodie circle, it is referred to as the Restaurant with No Name in Front of Saguijo.

It is full every lunch time with the who's who crowd in Makati. It is empty during dinner time but it is the favorite hangout of Saguijo-goers at night. It is a high-class turo turo with home-cooking that exceeds the best of the top 10 list featured in QTV's "Pinaka" show last Sunday.

Maybe that is why Ariel and Peng, the couple who run the place, got a bit paranoid when I took a lot of photos. Ariel is the manager of the restaurant while Peng is the cook behind the awesome dishes there. They want to keep this place a secret and are very protective of their concept. They shy away from magazine or TV show features because they run this place by themselves and they don't want the quality of the restaurant to suffer if it becomes too popular.

So I can only give you some clues about this place and let you discover it for yourself...

What do Cyma - Greek Restaurant, Charlie's - Grill and Grind and Ristras, Mexican Grill have in common? All of them have the culinary influence of Chef Rob Goco. Ristras, named after the arrangement of chile pepper pods when hung to dry or for decorative purposes, is the latest Mexican place that foodies are raving about. (Thanks to Maong for the tip. :) )

It is a burrito fast food joint that uses only fresh ingredients, which are slow-cooked. They pride themselves on not even owning a can opener in the restaurant. They also serve margaritas and Mexican/specialty beers.

The most awaited event in Havaianas promotions is the annual Make Your Own Havaianas. This year, it will be held for 5 days from May 28 to June 1 in Rockwell Tent from 10am to 10pm (Power Plant Mall hours).

What is different this time around? 
1. The culture pins are the highlight of this year's Make Your Own Havaianas.
2. The letters are now gone because they can be easily removed.
3. The basic slippers cost P795 and it's P50 for every pin you use.

There will be a lot of people in this event, so it is better to plan how you will design your own Havaianas before you go. We attended the media night of Make Your Own Havaianas and we got complimentary flip flops. I wanted to share with you some tips on how you can create your own.
