ANTIPOLO BEEHOUSE: Private Home Dining at the Burrow with Vitty and Marie!

Beehouse & Burrow-25.jpg

ANTIPOLO BEEHOUSE is the exciting creative space and residence of Vitty and Marie Gutierrez in Antipolo, Rizal. Its name is an homage to the nesting bees the couple found on the property when they first settled here. 

Built and designed by Vitty himself, st’s a popular pre-nuptial venue for those looking for something rustic and homey. Vitty is also known in their family for cooking delicious Filipino food, which they’ve started to share via private dining at The Burrow, their underground living and dining space surrounded by the forest and with a view of the stream.

We recently had our mastermind session at The Burrow and got to taste what The Beehouse has to offer. Here’s what you can expect…

Ribchon Baby Back Baboy-18.jpg

RIBCHON is a Filipino Restaurant in Tagaytay that specializes in not-your-usual baby back ribs, incorporating the flavors of the Pinoy favorite lechon, hence the name. The concept is the brainchild of Ham and Lucy Katipunan, in partnership with Chef Tristan Bayani.

It’s been a while since we got excited about trying a new restaurant in Tagaytay. So we decided to go here and celebrate Joshua’s 10th birthday. Here’s what to expect…

LANTERNA Boracay: Private Home Dining with the Island’s Best Italian Chef! (REVIEW)

Two Awesome Day at The Lind Boracay -102.jpg

LANTERNA is the bed & breakfast and private restaurant of Italian Chef Luigi and his wife Gladis Barbolla on the island of Boracay. Chef Luigi was actually one of the first Italians to settle in Boracay in the early 80’s and is regarded to this day as one of the island’s best chefs in his native cuisine. The private home dining restaurant serves Italian home cooking with everything made from scratch using sustainable ingredients. 

It is considered as a best kept secret among locals and their guests because of its simple yet authentic Boracay Island experience, from the ambiance to the food and island hospitality.

If you’re not staying in Laterna, you can still organize a private home dining for a group of 8-10 people. Here’s what to expect…

SUBO BORACAY: Have you tried Reconstructed Filipino Food by Chef Jian Sacdalan?!

oap-subo-9522

SUBO is a Filipino restaurant serving reconstructed Filipino food by Chef-Owner Jian Sacdalan, located along Calle Remedios in Station 3, Boracay. Former chef Sunny de Ocampo may have moved on to other projects, but the Subo concept lives on in the island.

The design and interiors are unlike any of the restaurants I’ve seen in Boracay. It’s not your typical kanin sa kaldero-sabaw sa palayok kind of Filipino restaurant. Subo takes inspiration from well-known Filipino dishes and serves them in not-so-familiar ways.

Here’s what to expect at Subo Boracay…

Why our Sons Love Bonchon?

Bonchon New Menu-30.jpg

Our son Aidan always prefers going to Bonchon whenever he hangs out with his friends because he loves the glaze of their chicken.

I still remember how excited we were when Bonchon first opened in 2010 at the height of the double fried chicken craze in Manila. I’m impressed how they’ve innovated their food offerings over the years, from their double fried chicken to their Korean soup and noodles, and now their Crispy Mandu rice bowl in 2017.

Here’s what our sons love at Bonchon…
