URBAN PANTRY: Gourmet Selections Curated by Clarisse Ong-Tiu & Twin Sister Carina Ong!

Instagram

URBAN PANTRY-34.jpg

URBAN PANTRY is a gourmet neighborhood store curated by Chris Tiu's wife, Clarisse Ong-Tiu, and sister-in-law Carina Ong.

The twin sisters' criteria for the products they carry are only those they are willing to buy and consume at home with their family. They love natural, healthy, homemade, and artisan products that are mostly made locally and are ready-to-eat or ready-to-cook.

They also create their own Urban Pantry product line if there are no items available in the market that they like.

We sampled their selections and these are the 10 gourmet items we love...

Sofitel's J’Adore Le Fromage: 101 Cheeses by Maître Fromagier Gérard Poulard
In celebration of Bastille Day (French National Day on July 14), Sofitel Philippines is featuring renowned Maître Fromagier Gérard Poulard, together with 100 premium and artisan cheeses (about P1M worth) from different high quality farms flown in from France.  

We attended the recently held media preview and it was quite interesting to learn about the French's love for cheese. It was also good to learn how best to enjoy cheese from a French Cheese Master.

I would like to share with you my favorite cheeses from Gérard Poulard's collection and my latest discoveries about cheese...

BASKIN ROBBINS Back in Manila! (A Review)

Instagram

What's your favorite
Baskin Robbins flavor?

BASKIN ROBBIN BGC-32.jpg
BASKIN ROBBINS is America’s Favorite Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop, founded by brother-in-laws Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in 1945. The brand was last seen in Manila more than a decade ago but has now made a comeback. The timing couldn't be more right, because Manileños have been craving for better ice creams. :)

We had to wait for close to 2 hours on Baskin Robbins' opening weekend, but it was well worth it. Part of the fun is in choosing from 31 delicious flavors and customizing how you want to enjoy your ice cream.

Here's a photo essay of our Baskin Robbins experience last weekend in BGC...

BIZU

About Bizu

We kiss one another to show gratitude, happiness, excitement, love, and affection. A kiss inspires. And this inspiration begets energy. This energy, in turn, begets creativity. BIZU was born out of this inspiration.

From this inspiration came the unique selection of cakes and pastries that were truly made to inspire. It all began with a dream to have an authentic Parisian Patisserie where the finest French pastries and European breads can be savored right in the Philippines. With much training and patience, our Filipino chefs have learned the magical art of the French Patisserie. Indeed, ensuring the most flavorful and artful products are brought to your homes is a labor of love.

From a kiosk/café at the third floor of Glorietta 4 that started operations in 2001, BIZU now has three more outlets in Greenbelt 2, Alabang Towncenter, and at The Promenade inside Greenhills Shopping Center. 

The menu includes all day breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner items. 

Customers are not to leave without the chewy pastel-colored Macarons de Paris that Bizu Patisserie is known for.
