LEMURIA: French Degustation with Wine Pairing of Lemuria's Bestsellers! @LemuriaGourmet

Instagram

LEMURIA Infinity 8-2.jpg

LEMURIA is a private dining French restaurant conceptualized by Mrs. Marina "Kitt" Schroeder, hidden in Horseshoe Village, Quezon City. It's name is inspired by the mystery behind the lost continent of Lemuria.

The cozy dining area is located on top of the Brumms Quality Wine Cellar, with a curated wine list from Germany, Austria, Romania, and other boutique wineries the Shroeders love.

After 8 years, it continues to be one of the most romantic garden restaurants in Manila. It never fails to lure lovely couples to dine because of its charm, focus on quality, and personal touch.

It's a bit nostalgic, reminiscing my initial post about this place: Lemuria's Mystique - a Romantic Restaurant in the Metro, and revisiting Lemuria after almost 8 years.

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...

PURPLE YAM MALATE: A Taste of Reimagined Filipino Food & Revival of Malate! @PurpleYamNYC #VivaManila

Instagram

PURPLE YAMMY!

PURPLE YAM Malate-41.jpg

PURPLE YAM MALATE is the local branch of the popular Purple Yam Modern Filipino Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York. It was founded in 2007 by Amy Besa and Chef Romy Dorotan of Cendrillon fame in Soho. Its name was inspired by the owner's love of ube. :)

The Malate branch is only open on weekends for by-reservation private dining -- dinner on Fridays and Saturdays, and brunch on Sundays. The owners describe their restaurant as a "serious dining" establishment (as opposed to a fine dining one).

The opening of Purple Yam is sure to create a buzz among the foodies in Manila and hopefully usher in the revival of Malate.

Rache and I brought the boys with us to try the Sunday brunch during their opening weekend. Here's what we think...

CO/OP MANILA: Hip Gift Shop and Comfort Food Café in San Juan :)

Instagram

CO-OP-1.jpg

CO/OP MANILA is a house-turned-lifestyle store and café in San Juan selling hip goods and comfort food. The name was inspired by the "cooperation" of the cousins who founded it.

It's a refreshingly unique homegrown store, something Manila could really use amidst the spreading of international chains.

Here's what to expect at CO/OP Manila and some improvement suggestions...
