Blackbird-7.jpg

BLACKBIRD is the Aviation-themed, Contemporary European and Asian Restaurant of Chef Colin Mackay of Sala and People's Palace fame. It is located at the Neilson Tower of the old Manila International Airport and is named after the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft. The ambiance is inspired by an Airport Terminal and its Art Deco building in the heart of Makati City.

We tried Blackbird with our partners and we loved it! Check out one of our favorite restaurants of 2014...

DINNER IN THE DARK in Manila! @AIMBSchool by @Ashoka x @CoLab

Dinner in the Dark-13.jpg

DINNER IN THE DARK is a unique dining experience held in complete darkness. It's organized and served by blind people to raise awareness of what it's like to not have your sense of sight.

I've always wondered how the experience of eating in a sea of darkness would feel, with no gadgets and other visual distractions.

Here's our first ever Dinner in the Dark experience...

The ERIC KAYSER Difference! Natural Liquid Leaven, Baked Fresh in Manila by French Chefs :)

Instagram

ERIC KAYSER MANILA

ERIC KAYSER is an authentic French Artisan Boulangerie in Manila, which is a licensed partnership between Eric Kayser and his local partners, Jacky Ang, Kelvin Gaisano, and Chris Tiu. Eric Kayser has 96 stores in 17 countries, with the Philippines as the latest expansion.

You should notice the difference in the taste and texture of their bread because of their signature Natural Liquid Leaven, which sets it apart from the yeast-based breads in Manila. Eric Kayser demanded to have a commissary from the start and sent his trained French bakers in Manila to ensure the top quality of the breads, following the tradition of using a long natural fermentation process, slow kneading, and small-scale production.

Gone are the days of flown-in frozen French breads. The key is to baking fresh daily using top quality ingredients and following a strict artisan production process. Once you've tasted the Eric Kayser difference, it will be very hard to appreciate other French breads in town.

Here's what we love about Eric Kayser...

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...
