RAMBLA Rockwell: Spanish Mediterranean Cuisine by Chef Pepe Lopez @RamblaPH

RAMBLA - Mediterranean Spanish - Our Awesome Planet-23.jpg
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!

KASBAH's Moroccan Cuisine from Boracay to BGC!

Kasbah BGC!-23.jpg

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...

Lu Moroccan/Mediterranean Restaurant

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. :)
