Kainan sa Dalampasigan-17.jpg
KAINAN SA DALAMPASIGAN is a must stop over place when passing by Nasugbu town en route to the beautiful beaches in Nasugbu.

CUISINIERS Pork Skewers: @Chowzter Asia's Tastiest Regional Specialty! @MercatoCentrale

Text by Paul Wenceslao

Filipinos love their barbecue. Taken as a snack or a main proponent of meals, barbecue is commonly found on the streets, restaurants and the dinner table. Chef Raymund Fabre and entrepreneur Raphy dela Cruz banked on that fact when they decided to open a booth at Mercato: Cuisiniers. They went on to develop succulent pork and chicken barbecue and eventually roast beef and sisig. 

Fabre and dela Cruz are big on taste. They came up with barbecue marinade that is not overwhelmingly sweet, which blends perfectly with the meaty flavor of pork and chicken. Cuisiniers’ barbecue attracts flocks of hungry folk, and people are known to order multiple servings of rice for good reason. It even won an award: Best Pork Skewers for Food Magazine’s Barbecue Cook Off competition.

In the Chowzter Asia 2015 Awards, it was recently recognized as the Tastiest Regional Specialty in Asia :)

BLACK SHEEP Degustacion: The Culinary Brilliance of Chef Jordy Navarra! #BlackSheepBGC

Update March 9, 2016: Black Sheep BGC is now closed and moved to Black Sheep Manila.

Black Sheep by Chef Jordy Navarra-27.jpg
I was so impressed with the "Bahay Kubo" that Chef Jordy Navarra served during the Lifestyle Asia Gala Dinner, we had to go back to Black Sheep and try their most raved-about degustacion.

The first time we tried Black Sheep, the chef was still feeling his way into the Manila food scene. This time around, Chef Jordy was able to express his culinary brilliance, celebrating Filipino ingredients and our culture through food.

I'd like to share with you our Black Sheep experience with our friends Rhoda and Vince...
