K-Pub BBQ Meat-All-You-Can-50.jpg
K-PUB BBQ Meat All You Can is a K-Pop Stars-Themed resto owned by a Filipino-Chinese. It promises a “funtastic” Korean BBQ Experience while watching K-Pop MTVs.

We were curious about the facade but had hesitations going in because we thought it was a Korean Super Pub. But I’m glad our curiosity won out, and we decided to try it with the boys.

Here’s our K-Pub BBQ Meat-All-You-Can experience:

Brasserie Girolle-13.jpg

BRASSERIE GIROLLE is a casual French resto by Chef Ian Padilla of La Girolle fame. Finally, a sequel to his popular resto that is known for its tasting menu.

It’s a nice place to hang out and have drinks with your friends, or to hold a pleasant business meeting with your partners.

We recently visited the place, back-to-back, for lunch and then dinner the next day. We love most of the main entrees, but there are dishes that they can improve on. 

Here’s our Brasserie Girolle experience…

MOVIE STARS CAFE: Dancing Spiderman, Darth Vader Waiter & Broadway Fun @MovieStarsCafe @TheMallofAsia

Movie Stars Cafe-80.jpg
MOVIE STARS CAFE is a movie-themed restaurant featuring waiters in Superhero and Villain costumes, and Broadway Musical performances. It is a passion project of the Japanese founder of HaloHaloMall.com.

Initially, it was named Star Movies Cafe, inspired by the Star Movies Cafe franchise in Japan. But they had to rename it to Movie Stars Cafe to avoid the trademark infringement.

I surprised the boys the other night with a restaurant where their superheroes come to life. 🙂

SABOTEN Philippines: The Original Tonkatsu Flavor Now in Manila!

It has been serving its famous tonkatsu since 1966 and has branches in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Canada, Thailand, and now in the Philippines. 🙂  The restaurant’s name means “cactus”,  inspired by the plant’s vitality and persistence despite harsh conditions.

Although the SABOTEN launch was pre-empted by YABU in Manila, we love how they offer different ways people can enjoy katsu and the unlimited-everything experience. 🙂
