Wilbern David: How OAP Made Him Fat and How He Transformed?

Transformation Triumph Thursday features the awesome transformation story of Wilbern David.

This is a special story of an OAP reader who got very fat because of my restaurant recommendations. I felt a bit guilty and some criticize OAP for promoting being fat even to my family. Featuring transformation stories is one way I can give back and inspire foodies to be healthy.

KANTO FREESTYLE

Kanto Freestyle is a 24/7 all-day breakfast concept featuring ridiculously affordable Filipino and Western fare. They offer pancakes, eggs Benedict, Spam, pork belly and the usual silog.

The owners wanted to revolutionize the kanto/karinderia image, by uplifting the same kind of breakfast items you’ll find in eateries all over the Philippines.

But why add the word “Freestyle” to “Kanto”? Because, here, you can mix and match your morning meal favorites. Make your own breakfast with different tapas, bacon strips, tocino and even have your eggs prepared just the way you like them—sunny side, scrambled, boiled or poached!

The Manila Podcast: Is it worth it to start a podcast?

We just published Episode #8 Season 1 Finale of The Manila Podcast documenting our ECQ diaries with my friend Spanky Enriquez.  The MNL Pod is a hyper-local city podcast about life in Manila which we launched during Manila’s ECQ lockdown.

Recently, a friend asked me — Is it worth it to start a podcast? As we end season 1, I would like to share with you our podcast analytics and to answer the question, was it worth it?

1. GALLERY BY CHELE

Gallery by Chele is a new restaurant concept by Chef Chele Gonzales and Carlo Villaflor based on the learnings from Vask Gallery and Tapas Bar.

It’s flavor-forward; celebrating local ingredients in the Philippines refined by Spanish culinary techniques.

Gallery by Chele | AT HOME will be officially launch and be ready for delivery this coming Saturday May 23rd. Also our initiative of social and solidarity cooking that as soon we go back to operations we want to keep doing. Many poor communities would be very much affected even after the lockdown and we would like to help them providing every Thursday 500 meals in a budget of 10 to 15k we can do that and using our resources in the restaurant using all food and minimise waste. We will need  food or monetary donations for this and I hope other restaurants would do the same to keep taking care of the ones who need it more.”

“It’s back! Chef Chele’s iconic dishes from his heritage and his mom’s home cooking are now available. Including some of the dishes that made a mark when he arrived in the Philippines. Chef Chele’s Spanish Signature dishes are unique, hearty, and wonderfully satisfying, which have been requested by some of our loyal patrons to be brought back for quite sometime now. Expect to taste his signature Mejillones Tigre, Black Ink Risotto and scallops, as well as his Mom’s signature Lengua with Mushrooms and her secret sauce. And you do not want to miss the fan-favorite Ube Torrija!”
