S Kitchen Sheraton Sunday Fiesta Buffet! @SheratonManila

Read first: Sheraton Manila Hotel: Secrets of Sheraton Staycation

After my Sunday Fiesta buffet in Sheraton, I knew this would be a perfect place to bring my balikbayan and international guests for a taste of Filipino cuisine but in a modern luxurious setting.

S Kitchen features a wide spread of international selections from East to West, but unlike other hotel buffets in Manila, its focal point is its Filipino station. You’ll love the Lechon de Leche stuffed with Paella, truffle kare-kare, homemade native delicacies and, of course, the “paluto station” that serves fresh seafood—crabs, shrimp, shells and even a whole lapu-lapu (grouper) cooked to your own liking!

Even the interiors of S Kitchen have a Filipino touch, from the traditional fish net inspired chandeliers to the Igorot-printed tiles.

Here’s what you’ll find at S Kitchen’s Sunday Fiesta Buffet priced at Php 2,500 only…

The District! The Best Boutique Hotel in Boracay

Even before its rehabilitation, Boracay has always been my favorite island in the Philippines.

I’ve been to this pristine island six times already but I just keep on coming back.

Apart from being the perfect beach getaway because of its breathtaking beach and crystal clear waters, this small island also has practically everything I need—from restos, to bars, to water activities, not to mention the array of hotels you can choose from to make your stay more memorable.

On my sixth sojourn to Boracay, I stayed in this newly renovated contemporary boutique hotel, The District. It’s conveniently located at the beachfront of Station 2 which is about a 5 min walk away from D’mall.

The District, for me, is by far the best modern boutique hotel for vacationers who want to stay at a convenient location without sacrificing their privacy. It has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place.

Join me as I discover what The District has to offer!

AQUA Boracay: The Secret of Boracay’s Best Day Pool Club!

Aqua Boracay is the best Day Pool Club in Boracay not only because of its Pool Party events but because it serves one of the best Spanish-inspired beach cuisines by Chef Chele Gonzales of Gallery by Chele fame.

Most people miss out on Aqua because they think it’s an exclusive private club where there’s nothing to do if there are no pool party events. Some think it is closed for construction. What they don’t know is that this is, in fact, one of the best places to eat and enjoy a pool party in the New Boracay.

Here are the secrets of the best day pool club in Boracay…

 

First Things First

It is easily accessed via e-trikes (₱120 special trip) passing through the back end of Balabag Lake at the back of D’Mall.

The Day Pool Club is open but the rooms are still under construction.

Aqua is located at the beachfront along the back beach called Bulabog.

This part of the island is nice during high tide and feels like a hideaway from the busy White Beach.

LOS INDIOS BRAVOS: Why You Have to Try the Best English Pub in Boracay

What I like about Los Indios Bravos is that it features the signature pub food recipes of Chef Kenneth Cacho and Chef Norbert Gandler of ISCAHM fame while celebrating the best of all-Filipino Craft Beers (on tap), Brown and White Spirits of the Philippines at the same time. Most importantly, it pays tribute to “Los Indios Bravos”—the Brave Natives of the 1800’s, Filipino intellectuals and warrior-poets and the Tirol Family of Boracay Island.

Bong Tirol, Martin Jickain and wife Maggie Tirol established the new Los Indios Bravos hidden at the back of White House in the New Boracay.

We tried most of the food and drinks, and here are our favorites that you should not miss at the island’s best English pub…
