GENKI SUSHI PHILIPPINES: Japanese Sushi Train in Manila (A Review)

Genki Sushi-7.jpg

One of our favorite places to eat in Tokyo with the kids is HamaZushi, where the sushi is served on a conveyor belt and the entire ordering process is automated. Our boys love how interactive ordering is, plus you can make your own green tea, and the quality of sushi is OK.

I'm happy that Genki Sushi opened in the metro with a similar automated concept, with the sushi served via cute trains straight from the kitchen. Here's our review of Genki Sushi Philippines...

TASTING ROOM: A U.S. Thanksgiving Dinner in Manila! (A Photo Essay)

Tasting Room- U.S. Thanksgiving Dinner in Manila!-28.jpg

Glad to be back in Manila just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with the U.S. Embassy team at Tasting Room, with wine pairing from Happy Living Wines. After a hectic APEC week with President Obama in attendance, we are thankful that everything went smoothly with no security incidents in Manila.

It was my first time at Tasting Room, and we were pleasantly surprised by how good it is amidst the mixed reviews when it first opened.

CASA ITALIA | Ep. 1: Concept Behind an Authentically Italian Cafe in Manila!

Here's our first look before famous Gelato house from Singapore officially opens its door in manila.

How to Build a Resto: Casa Italia (Episode #1):


F&B Director, Casa Italia

Hello, I’m Donato. I’m from Rome, Italy, and I’m a chef from Casa Italia. I’m the chef that prepare all the bread, pizza, pasta, gelato, and all the delicious Italian food for Casa Italia.

Casa Italia, which means Italian House, started in Singapore as a gelato store. And slowly along the way, we started to make our own coffee—we roast our own coffee, and then after that we introduce as well the Italian food.

So we make our own bread and pizza, and all the pasta. So I will be here in Manila for conducting the training for the gelato training and for the food training. I will be here to meet all the suppliers because we want to make sure that all the ingredients that we use here are as good as the ones we’re using in Singapore as well—all the high quality ingredients. And then I will train the team here in Manila to follow step-by-step our recipes from the bread, to the homemade fresh pasta, and to all the gelato as well.
