RAMBLA is a Spanish Mediterranean restaurant from the owners of LAS FLORES, with Spanish Chef Pepe Lopez as head chef, and named after the famous street La Rambla in Barcelona.
They specialize in Catalan Spanish food with Mediterranean influences. Its modern menu is like VASK, using Modern Gastronomy techniques, plus LU's Mediterranean food.
It was fun ordering something new and exciting. But I think we got carried away trying out all the new dishes and pairing it with wine and their signature cocktail drinks.
Check out RAMBLA this holiday season!

I can still remember sitting along the beach, watching the sun set as I enjoyed my Lamb Tagine in KASBAH. The vibe, the food, the setting were all perfect. It's no wonder then that I got excited to learn Kasbah would be opening a branch on the Fort Strip.
Finally, we now have a decent restaurant in Manila that can satisfy our Moroccan food craving! :) Let's give a warm welcome to Kasbah and thank it for coming to Manila! Here's our experience...

Yes, we now have a decent Moroccan restaurant in town. Most yuppies and business people are flocking to Lu (named after Luis, the owner) for a good meal of Moroccan/Mediterranean food. The place converts into a bar by 10pm -- this is one of those restaurants where you won't see any kids dining.
Some people mistakenly call it Lu Lu because of its logo, which represents a mirror reflection of LU. This was the perfect venue for us to meet one of our good old friends also named Lu (short for Luisa). :) I like it because of the exotic taste of the different spices used. Plus, my favorite couscous is a staple on the menu. :) Some people probably won't like it because of its "Indian" taste, which some taste buds can't seem to appreciate.
If you are looking for a new place to try in Rockwell, Lu is the place for you. :)

I love Mediterranean food specially the authentic ones which gives you a different and unique taste aside from the filipinized mid-east food you find in the malls. One of the shawarma place favorite in the Malate area is Shawarma Snack Center (SSC) near Hyatt Casino area. I'm sure most of you would know this already and I just want to share the secret to other people who haven't been to this place.
This is frequented by tourists and makati people who wants to eat authentic mid-east food. There are a lot of hole-in-the-wall shawarma places in Malate that you can get confused on which one to go to. This place is packed night after night. In fact, the owner of the SSC bought the space across which was formerly a chinese restaurant and decided to expand so he can cater to more people. You can order in both places but I prefer to eat in the original shawarma snack center. Hopefully, you get to find a table in the original place because usually this gets packed more easily than the one across.
Overall, the taste is quite unique and delicious but sometimes inconsistent. Although some people might find mid-east food to be dry and the meats mostly hard in texture. I like it because of its unique flavor. You might want to check this out.
