We decided to try out the new creations at Chef's Lab. Here's our experience...

8065 Bagnet, Bagnet-Inspired Hole-in-the-Wall

8065 Bagnet-14.jpg

The double-fried crispy pork specialty of Ilocos is glorified in this Bagnet-themed hole-in-the-wall resto in Makati. This place feels like Fat Michael's and serves good food with warm service.

It is named after its street number address: 8065 Estrella. It is owned by Alain Nadal (older brother of a popular singer of our generation -- Kitchie Nadal) and his partner Jeff Tuason. It's been popular among Manila-based foodies for some time now.

Here is our 8065 Bagnet experience...

Villa Cafe Kapampangan Resto by Chef Sau & Chef Jam

Villa Cafe by Chef Sau-28.jpg

Chef Sau and Chef Jam have finally opened a Kapampangan resto serving heirloom recipes from their families. It is aptly named "Villa" because of the old villages in Angeles -- Villa Gloria and Angela -- where they grew up.

All the dishes we ordered were rich in taste, plated well, and had that signature Kapampangan quality. Looks-wise and taste-wise, this is the kind of Filipino food that can please an international audience.

My Family Kitchen (MFK) - a Hidden Kapampangan Resto in Makati

My Family Kitchen-25.jpgMy Family Kitchen-23.jpg

My Family Kitchen (a.k.a. MFK) is the brainchild of Dada Dayrit. Here, people can taste her family's Kapampangan signature recipes, including the delicious ensaimada.

Kapampangans are known to serve yummy food without scrimping on ingredients. Taste is prioritized over price. Since the Dayrit family owns the apartment block where the restaurant is located, much of what you pay for really goes to the quality of the food.

When we were looking for the restaurant along Kamagong, we missed it the first time around. A bit hidden, it has an apartment-looking entrance and its signage can't be easily read. Nevertheless, it's worth the trip. :)
