#Restaurants, Bonifacio Global City

Going Savage! (Created by Chef Josh Boutwood)

Update 12/21/2018: As featured in 10 Best New Restaurants in Manila (2019 Homegrown Edition)!

By doing away with the pretentiousness one would typically expect from Fort Bonifacio’s higher-end restaurants, Savage is a breath of fresh air that is as familiar as it is—in its own way—innovative.

No gas or electric stoves, no foams, no spherification. Here you’ll find a rustic menu with hearty servings made the good old-fashioned way.

Wood, fire and a grill.

A testament to humankind’s ongoing attempts at making Mother Nature taste delicious. Savage takes humanity’s most basic culinary premise and delivers great tasting food that not only looks amazing, but tastes amazing as well.

Off the beaten path, Savage is quietly tucked away in The Plaza at Arya Residences.

The plaza is home to a handful of high-end dining establishments and foot traffic is light to moderate during the weekdays. (With evenings and weekends being the busiest times.)

It’s a nice cozy location compared to the busier parts of BGC and we recommend visiting the place if you want a more laid-back dining experience.

SAVAGE
G/F The Plaza, Arya Residences, McKinley Pkwy, Taguig, Metro Manila
Hours: 11am–3pm, 6pm–10pm Daily

Manila Life, Staycation

LUB D Family Hostelcation (and How to Plan your Own) @Lub_d

Lub d, which means “sleep well” in Thai, is Southeast Asia’s leading Hotel & Hostel brand based in Bangkok. The new Brgy. Poblacion, Makati branch is their first expansion in Manila.

Though the design and pricing is that of a hostel, having more Private Rooms (119) vs. Duplex Rooms (34) and Mixed Dorm rooms (10) makes Lub d Makati more like a budget hotel. It’s the largest one in the Philippines targeting millennial travelers who want to see the world. It’s also great for families and training your little travelers to get used to the hostel vibe.

Our family stayed for a short “hostelcation” over the weekend. Here’s why we think it’s the best place for one in Makati…

Lub d Hostel
7833 Makati Avenue, Barangay Poblacion, Makati City 1210
