HUNGRY HOUND: On Duck Fat Fries, Mr. Delicious' Bacon, and First Impressions... @HungryHoundPH

Hungry Hound First Impressions-22.jpg
HUNGRY HOUND is the latest Gastro Pub Concept by Chef Rob Pengson and Erwan Heussaff, located in the new Globe Headquarters in Bonifacio Global City. 

It's definitely howling but got mixed reviews when we visited during the soft opening. The concept is really cool but the execution is not quite there yet, and we felt it was premature to open before the ghost month. 

Here are the things we liked and got disappointed with at Hungry Hound...

DA VINCI - THE GENIUS Exhibit: Da Vinci Fever hits Manila! (Is it worth going to?) @TheMindMuseum #DaVinciTheGenius

Da Vinci The Genius-40.jpg

LEONARDO DA VINCI is hailed as the greatest genius of all time from the Renaissance Period (late 14th century to about 1600). He is well-known as the artist behind The Mona Lisa.

But with the discovery of his codices (think coded idea notebooks) and the reconstruction of his inventions, people now get to further appreciate his forward thinking, vision, and artistry, which was well ahead of his time. One of his famous drawings is that of the Aerial Screw, believed to be the forerunner of the modern helicopter.

Finally, the most comprehensive traveling exhibition (with over 200+ exhibits) of Leonardo Da Vinci’s works is now here in Manila. The Mind Museum and Grande Exhibitions Australia presents "Da Vinci - The Genius" for a limited 3-month exhibition which opened today. :)

Admittedly, I thought the exhibition would be boring and only for the renaissance art lovers and hopeless inventors. But it was actually very inspirational, and you leave with a passion to make your own difference in the world.

So, is it worth going to? Read this first before going to the Da Vinci exhibit...

Brasserie Girolle-13.jpg

BRASSERIE GIROLLE is a casual French resto by Chef Ian Padilla of La Girolle fame. Finally, a sequel to his popular resto that is known for its tasting menu.

It's a nice place to hang out and have drinks with your friends, or to hold a pleasant business meeting with your partners.

We recently visited the place, back-to-back, for lunch and then dinner the next day. We love most of the main entrees, but there are dishes that they can improve on. 

Here's our Brasserie Girolle experience...
