MARUGAME UDON & TEMPURA MANILA: Is The Udon Craze Here?

Marugame Udon
Marugame Udon Manila (also known as Marugame Seimen in Japan) is a popular udon chain known for their freshly made Sanuki-style udon and crispy fried tempura that’s very hearty and affordable!

The undisputed udon chain king in Japan has over 1000 stores and was named after Marugame, a city in Kagawa Prefecture known to have the best of these thick wheat flour noodles.

Now open in Bonifacio Global City thanks to the Ben Chan Group, the self-service, canteen-style restaurant offers customers a front row seat to their open kitchen. Watch as the trained staff knead, cut, boil, and serve the noodles right in front of you, and have the option of customizing and adding toppings to your dishes.

Here’s what to expect from Marugame Udon…

#Philippines, Boracay Island

SUNNY SIDE CAFÉ BORACAY: Best All-Day Breakfast on the Island?!

Sunny Side Café is located along the white beach of Station 3 Boracay. Famous for their all-day breakfast menu, they specialize in comfort food and contemporary breakfast dishes that are never boring!

We love their concept of twisting classic breakfast favorites such as their Ube & Cereal Milk Pancakes, Bacon and Mango Grilled Cheese, and Sunny Side Café Champorado (made with Malagos Chocolate and topped with caramel ice cream, mango, and candied bacon).

They are the only restaurant on the island serving specialty coffee. The dishes are all made from scratch–from their bacon, chorizo, and soups, to their bread and pastries that are freshly-baked in-house, every day!

Here’s what to expect at Sunny Side Café…
