Because Coffee by Harlan + Holden (A Review)

This is one of the landmark cafes at the center of BGC on 5th Avenue corner Bonifacio High Street.

Because Coffee by fashion brand Harlan + Holden is known to be a cashless coffee shop where you can order your coffee in advance. The branding is on point, and the place is the simple answer when you are stressed or pondering on your whys in life.

Apart from the intimidating sleek minimalist design, is the coffee any good?

About The Choice Awards

We’re now in a Golden Age of Philippine Restaurants and Hotels that we’ve never experienced before.

In the first six months of this year alone, over 500 new restaurants opened … and that’s only all over Metro Manila! The construction boom in hotels and resorts all over the country is likewise accelerating at a rapid pace.

Every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there’s a new restaurant opening its doors. There are a lot of great new dining choices, side by side with the perennials, the classics that we grew up with.  As food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, we’re always very curious about the crowd favorites. The popular vote, if you will.  What are the beloved favorites? Let the voice of the people be heard!Read more

CRAYFISH PARTY 2019: Asia’s Biggest Viking Party! @SofitelManila

Transport back in time and feast like a Viking at the biggest Crayfish Party in Asia!

The Kräftskiva (Crayfish Party) is a traditional Swedish eating and drinking celebration, symbolizing the end of summer for Nordic countries, usually in August. The celebration is made complete with the serving of the sought-after delicacy, the Swedish crayfish. But what is crayfish? Crayfish, also known as freshwater lobster, is found in the Northern Hemisphere and is not native to Philippine waters, which explains why we’re not that familiar with it. Due to a plague that almost wiped out the crayfish population, a law has been made to prohibit the fishing of crayfish year-round except during the crayfish season that starts in August. This is the reason why the crayfish is rare and expensive.

Feast on bountiful servings of imported crayfish and Nordic spreads, drink free-flowing beer, dress in Viking costume and dance to the festive music with NordCham Philippines in partnership with Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila on September 14, 2019 at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent. Here’s what to expect from this year’s event…Read more
