Why our Sons Love Bonchon?

Bonchon New Menu-30.jpg

Our son Aidan always prefers going to Bonchon whenever he hangs out with his friends because he loves the glaze of their chicken.

I still remember how excited we were when Bonchon first opened in 2010 at the height of the double fried chicken craze in Manila. I’m impressed how they’ve innovated their food offerings over the years, from their double fried chicken to their Korean soup and noodles, and now their Crispy Mandu rice bowl in 2017.

Here’s what our sons love at Bonchon…

Marugame Udon
Marugame Udon Manila (also known as Marugame Seimen in Japan) is a popular udon chain known for their freshly made Sanuki-style udon and crispy fried tempura that’s very hearty and affordable!

Now open in Bonifacio Global City thanks to the Ben Chan Group, the self-service, canteen-style restaurant offers customers a front row seat to their open kitchen. Watch as the trained staff knead, cut, boil, and serve the noodles right in front of you, and have the option of customizing and adding toppings to your dishes.

BLUE POST BOILING Crabs & Shrimps with the Boys (A Review)

Blue Post Boiling Crab & Shrimps-41.jpg

It’s hard to please our boys these days. While they’re each growing up with different eating preferences, all of them demand yummy, satisfying food. 

For Sunday lunch, we decided to eat at Davao’s famous Blue Post Boiling Crabs & Shrimps, to satisfy our craving for seafood (especially after our recent trip to Ireland) and our Gen Z kids’ need for interactive and delicious food. 

We even had a discussion on sustainability, to teach our kids to only support establishments that are sustainable. 

Here’s what we think about Blue Post Boiling Crab & Shrimps…

FIGARO: Reinventing the Coffee Shop to a Filipino Café Concept?

oap 25

Figaro Coffee is a proudly Filipino coffee chain and is one of the most successful to grow on a global scale. Their vision has always been to support our farmers and promote high-quality, local coffee beans.  

The coffee shop has been around since 1993 and is the brainchild of a group of coffee enthusiasts who dreamt of a café where they could entertain people while enjoying a great cup of coffee and delicious pastries. Its name comes from the male lead in the opera "The Barber of Seville" and encompasses the whole Italian and European concept they were going for. 

Recently, Figaro decided to launch its new menu and Figaro Café store to cater to the evolving market while still staying passionately committed to boosting the local coffee industry. 

Here's what to expect from the new and improved Figaro Coffee…

SAGANA Epicerie & Bistro: Sustainable French Food by Chef Marc Aubry in Manila (REVIEW)

Sagana26

Sagana Epicerie and Bistro is the latest Farm-to-Family French restaurant concept by Chef Marc Aubry. Located in the same spot as his old bistro, Champetre, Chef Marc still offers French food but now highlights farm-fresh, organic, and locally-sourced ingredients.

Make no mistake though, despite its Filipino-sounding name, Sagana is a full-fledged French restaurant. It doesn’t try to make anything Filipino.

“Sagana” refers to abundance and is a fitting tribute to the rich produce and diverse ingredients of the Philippines.

Here’s what we loved about Sagana…

 

SAGANA EPICERIE & BISTRO
G/F Net One Center, 3rd Avenue corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
Open Daily – Mondays to Saturdays, 10:30 AM – 10:00 PM
Telephone: +632 815 8801
