We love trying out new restaurants, but there are times when we want to revisit places that we’ve been to simply because they’re yummy. One of our favorite Italian places in Boracay and in Manila is Aria because of the delicious pizza, pasta and salad combinations.

Recently, they added innovative cocktail drinks by Tim Walters and also a Kids’ Menu.

Here is our updated Aria experience…

If I had a minute to go and grab something to eat, it would be some sort of all-in-one meal—like a sandwich. A more fun alternative would be the panini, Italy’s version of stuffed bread or sandwich, which typically uses ciabatta that is horizontally cut in half and filled with all kinds of meat and/or veggies and cheese.

I recently discovered a panini place in Cucina Andare, New York Minute Paninis, which offers eight different variants and creates them upon order. A must-try is the Empire Steak, a bestseller that has sautéed beef, bell peppers, onions and mozzarella cheese. Their version of the classic Philly cheese steak is spot on with the delicious combination of the beef, veggies and the melted cheese. This is a panini that would satisfy even those with big appetites!

WEE NAM KEE: Hainanese Chicken Rice now uses WNK Singapore’s Yellow Chicken! @WeeNamKeePH

Read First: Wee Nam Kee’s Hainanese Chicken Rice Now in Manila!

The NEW Wee Nam Kee-42.jpg

Finally, Wee Nam Kee has imported the Yellow Chicken, considered the Wagyu of Chickens, for its Hainanese Chicken Rice! This was a response to a customer suggestion on importing the same chicken (sourced from Malaysia) originally used by Wee Nam Kee Singapore.

The Wee Nam Kee we love just got better, and they even added signature drinks and desserts to complete the dining experience. You’ve got to try the Yellow Chicken Difference. 🙂 

(Note: Yellow Chicken is on a limited run from May 1 to June 30 at WNK Glorietta and Serendra.)
