OOMA-licious! Bold Japanese Comfort Food by Chef Bruce Ricketts @Ooma_PH @SMMegaMall (First Look)

Instagram

Ooma Chef Bruce Ricketts-43.jpg

OOMA Japanese Rice Bar is a bold Japanese restaurant concept by Chef Bruce Ricketts of Mecha Uma with The Moment Group. It aims to be an affordable Japanese comfort food place (at less than P500/dish), featuring intense flavors that Pinoys will love and, of course, unlimited rice!

The name is a play on Uma, which means "good". The use of the O's is meant to represent their "orgasmically" good food.

There have been talks that this is just a commercialized fast food version of Sensei Sushi, or a Hi-Lo concept strategy for Mecha Uma. Read on to see what we think of Ooma...

COSTA COFFEE: Everything You Need to Know about @CostaCoffee in Manila! #LondonStyle

Instagram

Costa Coffee Opening-40.jpg

COSTA COFFEE, the UK's No. 1 Coffee Chain, finally opens their first branch in Manila, in partnership with Robinsons Retail Holdings, Inc. This also marks the first time that the Gokongweis will enter into the restaurant food retail business in the Philippines.

Typically, when Filipinos are asked to think of London, they think of English Tea and tea time. But the coffee industry there is quite big, with a recent explosion of coffee culture in the UK's capital.

Costa Coffee was founded by two Italian immigrant brothers, Bruno and Sergio Costa in Lambeth, London, in 1971. It is one of four major coffee chains (and the dominant player) in London, along with Starbucks, Caffè Nero, and Prêt à Manger. Costa Coffee is best known for their espresso-based coffee using their signature Mocha Italia original blend, their famous Flat White Coffee, and cheaper yet better quality coffee than Starbucks'.

Here's everything you need to know about Costa Coffee in Manila...

BALAY DAKO Tagaytay by Antonio's: What to Expect and What to Order? (A Review)

Instagram

Balay Dako-1-2

BALAY DAKO is the latest Filipino Restaurant by Chef Tony Boy Escalante serving Filipino comfort dishes and classic Tagaytay food. It's name means "Big House" in Negresense, and refers to the gathering place of Filipino families for milestone celebrations and other special occasions.

My brother and parents went there last Independence Day weekend and they found the food salty. We visited with our foodie friends last weekend and they were also disappointed with the food. I suppose those who visit Balay Dako have high expectations of the food quality and service, which the Antonio's brand is known for.

At the end of the day, I believe it's all about setting the right expectations, ordering the right food, and going there at the right time and for the right purpose

Here is our review of Balay Dako by the Antonio's Group...
