STELLA, Sister of Chelsea & the Star of BHS Central

Stella & Rocketroom-26.jpg

STELLA is a wood fire bistro that offers light and fresh cuisine, specializing in wood fire oven-cooked dishes. A brainchild from the creators of Museum Cafe, it is also a sister resto of Chelsea — not a rehashed concept, but something totally new and exciting.

It is envisioned to be the Star restaurant among all the Bonifacio High Street Central establishments. It offers the best value for money (relatively affordable) with its unique and high quality dishes.

We pre-celebrated Mother’s Day in Stella, and here is what we liked and didn’t like about it…

VILLAGE TAVERN, a Higher-End Friday’s?

Village Tavern-17.jpg
Village Tavern is a high-end American Restaurant Chain from the group that brought Friday’s and Italianni’s to Manila. Although it was established way back in 1984 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, most Filipinos are not familiar with this brand.

We were curious and tried it out…

SARIWON’s Bulgogi and Galbi Korean Barbecue!

Sariwon, Korean Barbecue-71.jpg

The Korean craze in Manila just got even more interesting with the opening of the first branch outside Korea of the legendary Bulgogi of Mrs. Bun-Im Koo (from the Sariwon town in North Korea).

Most Filipinos are not familiar with the brand except for the Korean community that immediately patronized the restaurant. Filipinos tend to go for the Bulgogi and Galbi, while the Koreans enjoy the cold noodles.

Sariwon‘s Bulgogi and Galbi are better than those from Bulgogi Brothers, and I love that they use a smokeless roaster so you don’t smell like Bulgogi after eating.

Here are some notes, tips and recommendations if you plan to try it out…

HARVEST Gastro Pub in BGC

Harvest BGC-19.jpg

Junjie Abella is best known for Chili Peppers, which is credited with starting the boom of the famed Magsaysay Strip in Naga City. Last year, he opened The Plantation Bar and Bistro along Carlos Palanca in Makati.

Harvest Gastro Pub is the resto sequel (after you plant, you harvest), with more emphasis on good food. Take note, the place turns into a bar at night.

I was surprised that he was the one who took over the controversial Alexandre spot beside Rose.

Kitchen’s Best @ BGC!

Kitchen's Best BGC-18.jpg

Good ambiance + signature comfort food + really good dessert = Kitchen’s Best.

From being a hidden resto in Karrivin Plaza along Pasong Tamo, it has become one of the loveliest signature restaurants in BGC. Kitchen’s Best certainly knows that the way to the Filipino’s heart is not only through yummy main dishes but also via kick-ass desserts. 🙂

A SLICE of Pia Cayetano

Slice-14-1.jpg

One of the new concept restaurants in Bonifacio High Street Central is SLICE, the latest baby of Senator Pia Cayetano. If Sonja’s Cupcake bakery ambiance and Cafe Mary Grace’s homey feel-good food had an offspring with a focus on healthy and natural products, this would be it. 🙂

Aidan wanted to eat late at night to try a new restaurant, so we decided to try SLICE, which was on soft-opening, for our all-boys night out…

The Cake Club Dessert Haven

9/7/15 Update: The Cake Club at BGC is now closed 🙁

The Cake Club-7.jpg

Most of the restaurants in Bonifacio High Street Central seem to have neglected including really good desserts in the menu, so it’s best to go to a place that specializes in desserts like The Cake Club by Diamond Hotel. This is their second outlet after the Rockwell Mall.

Here are our recommendations for an awesome dessert experience in The Cake Club…

A Beso Cucina Vinoteka Date

Beso Cucina Vinoteka-21.jpg

There are times when we want a breather from the boys and go on a date on our own. During these rare occasions, we would go to adults-only places that serve good food.

Chef Carlo’s Beso Cucina Vinoteka is one of those places that serve good Spanish tapas with a good selection of alcoholic drinks, located in Bonifacio High Street Central.

Although, one of the disadvantages of eating on a date is that you can only order food good for two, and you have to be very selective.

We enjoyed our Beso date experience. It’s a good place to hang out for good food and drinks with your special someone. 🙂

ROSE Manila’s Sushi River and Adam’s Ice Cream

ROSE-21.jpg

This Japanese restaurant is a bit unusual.

First, it is named after Roe (fish eggs), which is common in Japanese cuisine. The plural of Roe is still Roe, but Rose is a better sounding name for a restaurant.

Second, it takes pride in having the first sushi river in Manila where the sushi is placed on boats and served to your table as it goes around the river. Sakae Sushi did not really take off in Manila, but maybe using a river instead of a conveyor belt would be better in terms of presenting the sushi.

Finally, it is more known for its artisan ice cream by Adam than its Japanese fare.

The Mind Museum at Taguig: A Complete First Timer’s Guide

Update Sept. 2013: DA VINCI – THE GENIUS Exhibit: Da Vinci Fever hits Manila! (Is it worth going to?)

The Mind Museum @ BGC-74.jpg

After 5 years in the making, The Mind Museum at Taguig, the first world-class Science Museum in the Philippines is now here! 

It’s the biggest and most impressive with 250 hands-on, minds-on interactive exhibits in a 5,000 sqm exhibit area located in a 12,500 sqm JY Campos Park in Bonifacio Global City. 

It is a showcase of “What we know, how we know it and what we do with what we know” for kids age 6 to 96 🙂

This Php1 billion project was fully funded by private donations and created with the help of :

  • Science Centre Singapore (as the Planning Consultant)
  • Jack Rouse and Associates (recognized as among the top ten museum and theme park designers in the world), 
  • National Geographic Channel (for the required footages and stills for the exhibit)
  • Architect Ed Calma and achitects from Lor Calma & Partners (for the futuristic, yet organic look of the entire museum based on cellular growth and structures)
  • Filipino artists working with Filipino scientists and engineers (for the innovative exhibit designs to clearly and beautiful flesh out a Science principle or fact)

Here is a Complete First Timer’s Guide to The Mind Museum at Taguig:
