HELM: Chef Josh Boutwood at the Helm of Manila’s Best Degustation Experience!

HELM by Josh Boutwood-48.jpg

Chef Josh Boutwood’s Helm offers one of the best degustation experiences that’s certainly not to be missed in Manila. After the successful opening of Test Kitchen and Savage, Helm’s 10-seater theatre dining experience is his best one yet.

It’s like Chef Josh’s culinary playground where he unleashes his creativity after managing Bistro Group’s culinary empire. At Helm, he is in charge, and it’s awesome to see the chef having fun and to have a taste of it with every plate.

Ingredients. What I like about Chef Josh’s Culinary Philosophy is that he pays attention to the ingredients first, especially the local ones but not limited to these. All the ingredients used during the degustation are displayed and you can ask what’s the story behind each and every one of them.

Technique. After the ingredients, he would think about the best culinary technique—from using sous vide, Excalibur dehydrator, liquid nitrogen or using the Big Green Egg to unleash the flavors and the best textures.

Experience. With Helm’s live theatre dining experience, everyone has a front-row seat from which to watch the handsome chef create culinary magic and be hypnotized by his British accent. You don’t get full after the 14-course degustation because they don’t use carbs (except the bread), yet your mind, palate and heart are all satisfied.

Take note, you have to buy a ticket to dine here with two seating options. The Degustation Menu concept changes every quarter.

The blog feature below is a spoiler, so best not to read it.

Sanhoyan: Taiwanese Food with a Twist! @sanhoyantw

Taipei is a definite haven for food lovers. But where else can you go after you’ve exhausted the night markets and other food districts? Located in Breeze Nanjing, one of Taipei’s nicest shopping malls in the Songshan District, is Sanhoyan.

Sanhoyan is not your ordinary Taiwanese restaurant. It serves traditional Taiwanese food with a twist. We went in the midst of a heavy lunch crowd, straight from the airport after a short delay from Taitung. To say we were hungry was an understatement.

Here’s what we had at Sanhoyan:

NOMU: Hidden Bar in a BGC Matcha Cafe?

The founders of Nomi Matcha, a modern Japanese Café dedicated to all things Matcha, has expanded to the booze business. Their most recent expansion is Nomu, a Japanese Speakeasy. It’s no surprise that they expanded towards the liquor circle as drinking is a shared interest between the Filipinos and the Japanese.

What’s surprising, however, is Nomu’s location. It’s located right inside Nomi!

So, where in Nomi can you find this bar?

NOMU
Ground Floor, W City Center, 30th Street Corner 7th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City
Operating Hours: 5 PM – 1AM

The New Wild Flour Restaurant

WFpost11

Having opened their doors in 2012, Wild Flour Restaurant has gone on to become one of the most successful and recognizable (local) restaurant brands in Metro Manila.

Consistency, great food, and great talent are some of the key factors to Wild Flour’s success, and while a number of restaurants struggle in Manila’s highly competitive restaurant market, Wild Flour has been steadily growing with no signs of slowing down making their story a true, modern-day Filipino success story.

 

WFpost4

Starting out as a small French/American cafe and bakery that specialized in all day breakfast and lunch, Wild Flour has gradually evolved its menu to incorporate local and international items to keep up with customer demand. This has led the team to expand beyond the brunch style model by adding dinner to their menu which is now available at all branches.


Wild Flour Restaurant

Ground floor, Net Lima building,
26th St., Taguig, BGC Metro Manila
Hours: Mon – Thu 6am – 10pm, Fri – Sat 6am – 11pm, Sun 8am – 9pm
Phone: 856-7600 or +0917 852-0950
