Single Origin, our go-to place for meeting friends over good drinks, now serves simple home-cooked Italian food in this corner bistro in Salcedo. It’s a quaint place for Italian comfort food—pizza and pasta or bistecca (steak) if you want to indulge in it.
In the battle of the new Osterias in Manila, here’s what to expect at the Osteria version of Single Origin.
We’re now in a Golden Age of Philippine Restaurants and Hotels that we’ve never experienced before.
In the first six months of this year alone, over 500 new restaurants opened … and that’s only all over Metro Manila! The construction boom in hotels and resorts all over the country is likewise accelerating at a rapid pace.
Every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there’s a new restaurant opening its doors. There are a lot of great new dining choices, side by side with the perennials, the classics that we grew up with. As food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, we’re always very curious about the crowd favorites. The popular vote, if you will. What are the beloved favorites? Let the voice of the people be heard!
Our Awesome Planet, the country’s #1 food blog and one of the Top 50 travel blogs in the world; and the Food Writer and Blogger Collective known as the KTG (Kain Tulog Gang); together with the prestigious World Food Expo (WOFEX), The Ultimate Food Show Experience, have partnered to conduct the People’s Choice for the Favorite Food, Restaurants, Hotels, and Chefs …. Or simply, “The Choice”.

YES! I still can’t believe that Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is now playing in Manila!
It’s on top of my Broadway musical bucket list ever since I missed watching it in Broadway and West End. Watching it in Manila was extra special because it was more relatable with the Manila cast, and we witnessed Kyla Rivera, whom we watched In the Heights (2011), bloom into Carole King’s lead role (2019).
Best to watch it raw, without reading any reviews and in the company of your musical-lovin’ friends. Grab the last remaining shows of the first Meralco Theatre run that’s only until July 7, 2019.
Having said that, here’s why it is sooo beautiful to watch…
ALAMAT BF, a Filipino Bistro by Chef Niño Laus and southern partners, is the restaurant version of the famed Alamat Pub in Poblacion. Paulo Sayo transformed this old Aguirre St. house into a beautiful glass bahay kubo restaurant.
Alamat is a story of Filipino Pride championing Filipino Food (with focus on tribal and ancestral) and Craft Drinks now in the South.
Since most of the food was good, we had to go back twice to check out everything. Here are our favorites and what we recommend.
