No. 8 China House, named after its auspicious location on 8th Avenue in BGC,  is a modern Chinese restaurant serving fine Cantonese cuisine. This is one of the best lauriat experiences we had in Manila because of the exquisite interiors of its private rooms, the auto-rotate lazy susan table and its Cantonese specialty dishes.

Here are some tips on what to order and how to organize your next fine lauriat dining celebration…

The Grand Kitchen is the all-day dining buffet of Grand Hyatt that’s set up with a grand show kitchen in the middle and cozy living areas around it. It’s like eating at a chef’s table from any angle.

Make sure to go for food that’s freshly cooked upon order, otherwise some of the food are just left out on the buffet to dry or lose their crisp. I would recommend going for the cross-over Sunday Brunch with The Cellar and the signature Meatless Monday buffet.

It’s quite intimidating to try it at first because of how grand the set-up and selections are, so here’s a guide on how to navigate the Grand Kitchen…

It’s been a while since we tried it, but this time we were able to bring the boys who happen to be our barometer for good dim sum and true enjoyment of the taste of the food.

A New World Hotel Makati Holiday Staycation Story

It was the first time we stayed at the New World Makati Hotel, a Chinese hotel brand that recently celebrated their 25 years in the Philippines. This hotel was the setting of a lot of memories during my P&G and partying days, and the brand stood the test of time in its iconic location on the corner of Makati and A. Arnaiz Avenues (now Pasay Road).

This holiday season, we created awesome staycation memories with our family of 4 boys.  Here’s our New World Makati Hotel Staycation story…
