LOG CABIN: A Cozy Retreat in Sagada (A 2016 Review)

Untitled

Log Cabin has made a name for itself as a favorite among both locals and tourists in Sagada. This rustic home was transformed into a bar, restaurant, and then lodge in the 90’s by Dave and Janice Gulian.

In its early stages, Log Cabin was a bar exclusively for foreign dignitaries. Food was incorporated into the menu after Dave and Janice returned from Switzerland and experimented with the European palate. A fusion of European and Filipino elements eventually made up the 5-set menu we know today.

Log Cabin is most recognized for its Saturday buffets prepared by French Chef, Philippe Heyer, who has had more than two decades of culinary experience all over the world. Alas, Chef Aklay (his Igorot name) is no longer part of the Log Cabin Family, but the buffet still carries on every week.

Atelier Vivanda Manila by Chef Akrame: 50-day Dry-Aged Steaks! (Review)

IMG_7774.jpg

Atelier Vivanda Manila is an integrated steakhouse, bistro, and wine & cheese bar (BRVT) concept by two-Michelin-star Chef Akrame Benallal of Paris. They are best known for their 50-day dry-aged meats imported directly from Paris, as well as their artisanal French-style comfort food

Atelier means "workshop of an artisan" while Vivanda comes from La Viende, which means "meat life". The Manila branch is in partnership with Khristine Gabriel and Grace Lee, who loved their Chef Akrame experience in Paris so much that they decided to help bring it to the Philippines.

There was a lot of hype surrounding the opening of Atelier Vivanda in the metro. Here's our experience...
