TAAL VISTA: Best Negrense Buffet by Chef Fernando Aracama! @TaalVistaHotel

Instagram

Taal Vista Culinary Gems-97.jpg

People always ask me what our favorite cuisine is, and I would always answer, Filipino Food. We especially love the regional cuisine from Pampanga, Negros, Ilocos, and Bicol.

So it's great news that Taal Vista--in celebration of their 75th anniversary--is featuring the best Filipino chefs from Manila. As part of their weekend buffet at Cafe Veranda, each chef gets to feature their specialty Filipino dishes for two weekends.

The campaign, called "CULINARY GEMS: A Festival of Filipino Flavors", kicked off last weekend with Chef Fernando Aracama's Negrense food specialties. And we loved it!

Here's a photo essay of one of the Best Negrense Buffets, which also kicks off the series on What's New in Tagaytay 2014...

IPPUDO Philippines: #WorldFamousRamen Now in Manila! (What to Expect @IppudoPH?)

Instagram

Ippudo Philippines-72.jpg

IPPUDO is the most popular Hakata-style Tonkotsu (pork-based) ramen in the world. It was founded in 1985 by Ramen King Shigemi Kawahara in Fukuoka City, Kyushu

Its name literally means "One Wind Hall" and is symbolic for the restaurant's going against the wind and revolutionizing the ramen era of the time. It was the first shop to offer ramen in a carefully crafted setting, so that both men and women can enjoy an elegant bowl of noodle soup. It was also the first to refer to its broth by colour Shiro (white) for the classic and Aka (red) for spicy.

After months of waiting, Ippudo Philippines has finally opened to complete the Ramen Craze in Manila. :)

Here's what to expect from the Ippudo experience in Manila (in comparison to Ippudo Singapore)...

A'TODA MADRE: Tequila 101 in the Most Extensive Tequila Bar in Manila!

Instagram

A Toda Madre Tequila Bar-22.jpg

A'TODA MADRE Tequila Bar is the most extensive Tequila Bar in the Philippines, with now over 105+ tequila varieties. It's the 2nd Tequila Bar to open in the country, next to Maya in Cebu (which we're still waiting to expand in Manila).

Most of us have bad memories of tequila from our college days. We were drinking the Jose Cuervo Mixto kind--a blend of 51% blue agave tequila and 49% sugars, which is notorious for causing bad hangovers. I'm also willing to bet that the only way you know how to drink tequila is to put some salt on your hand, down the tequila in one shot, lick the salt, and suck some lemon

A'Toda Madre offers the authentic tequila experience. Using only 100% blue agave, you smell the aroma of the tequila, then sip and enjoy like wine--just like how they do it in Mexico. 

Thanks to Francis of our Ex-P&G IT Mafia for introducing us to A'Toda Madre. 

Check out this Tequila 101 post and what to expect...
