BGC Food Tour with Ivan Man Dy :)

BGC Food Tour-23

The Food Tour of Ivan Man Dy (of Old Manila Walks fame) in Bonifacio Global City last April 24 was great! It's actually a restaurant tour organized by Bonifacio Global City management to promote selected restaurants in Serendra, Bonifacio High Street (BHS) and Fort Strip.

The best thing about it is it's for FREE and open to BHS, Serendra and Fort Strip visitors. You can register as walk-in guests at the Concierge Desk in Bonifacio High Street for the upcoming May 1, 2pm tour.

Here are some of my interesting discoveries during the food tour...

The Delivery Wars: 87878 vs. 2121212

The Delivery Wars-6The Delivery Wars-1 

Manila's getting served -- in a good way! We are in the middle of the fight between City Delivery 87878 and Delivery 21 (formerly Quick Delivery) 2121212 for Delivery Supremacy in Manila. Because of this "war", a lot of innovation is happening in the food delivery industry and the foodies are getting improved service faster. Let me know if you have any feedback regarding your experience with both delivery services.

Fish Feeding and Boating @ Solenad, Nuvali

Fish Feeding and Boating in Nuvali-9

It's the first time I've seen so many Koi at one time! Some of them were literally out of the water already as they were being fed. It started as a mix of small and adult carps until they flourished so well in the lake environment with minimal mortality rate.

Feeding the fish, boating around the lagoon and dining al fresco beside the lake are recommended activities with your kids when you visit Solenad, the first retail area in Nuvali.

Why “Solenad”? Solenad comes from “sol” meaning sun and “nad” from the word promenade. Solenad does justice to its name given its outdoor scenery, parks and lush greens within a neighborhood center.

Here is a photo essay of our Fish Feeding and Boating experience...

The Food @ Bellarocca [2 of 3]

OAP | Bellarocca Blog Series
Bellarocca Rocks! 
The Food @ Bellarocca Awesome Things to do in Bellarocca

The second part of the Bellarocca series focuses on why the food needs a lot of improvement in the resort. This post is not meant to discourage you from going to Bellarocca but to be straightforward about what to expect and what will you be paying for.

Also, I want to challenge Bellarocca to improve its dishes because it is really unfair to serve not-so-good food at such expensive prices. We don't want the Philippines to be known for having 5-star resorts with ho-hum food, do we?

Arriving @ Bellarocca-105
Greek Salad (P420 +10%sc). Feta cheese, tomato, cucumber, bell peppers, onions, olives. Served with red wine vinegar and olive oil dressing.

This salad is one of the few Greek-inspired food in this Santorini-themed resort's menu. The vegetables are good -- not freshly picked but at least they don't look tired. The dressing's healthy but forgettable.
