SIGLO MODERN FILIPINO: Traveling The Philippines Through Food with Heirloom Ingredients!

 

Siglo Modern Filipino celebrates its first anniversary by continuing to inspire adventurous foodies looking for that authentic Pinoy experience by traveling the Philippines through food.

Siglo (which means “century” in Tagalog), brings one hundred years of culture and cooking with Filipino heritage recipes from all over Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Besides supporting local farmers, we love how they promote the use of heirloom ingredients like adlai, batuan, siling labuyo, and barako into their dishes.

MARMALADE KITCHEN (Revisited) x US Potato Safari Collab by Chef Aileen Anastacio!

Marmalade Kitchen-5.jpg

MARMALADE KITCHEN is the restaurant and kitchen studio of Chef Aileen Anastacio of Goodies & Sweet’s fame. It serves all-day breakfast and comfort food favorites that Filipinos love. The restaurant is also a popular venue for 50-60 pax private events in BGC and her kitchen studio hosts intimate cooking & baking classes for a minimum group of 6. 

Thanks to her innovative collaborative spirit, she has outlasted most of the restaurants in this little corner of BGC.

We recently revisited Chef Aileen’s bestsellers and tried her recent Potatoes USA collaboration inspired by the US Potato Safari concept, an annual campaign challenging local restaurateurs to create innovative US potato recipes.

Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen & Hukad: The Cebuano Food Invasion in Manila! @TheMallofAsia

Golden Cowrie-12.jpg

Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen is the premium brand of the foremost Cebu restaurant deeply rooted in the heart and culture of every Cebuano bringing generations of diners together for 35 years.

Its menu features classic recipes to pay homage to the heritage of Philippine cuisine and celebrates culinary creativity in terms of modern execution and play of flavors. The name pays tribute to the Cowrie, one of the Philippines’ prized indigenous shells.

In Cebu, they are famous for their Crispy Pata, while their original Cebu Lechon Belly is a hit in Manila.

I have nothing but happy memories of eating at Golden Cowrie in Cebu, so I’m glad that they’ve decided to expand here and bring their authentic Cebuano cuisine to Manila.

Here’s what to order and expect at Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen / Hukad…

IKOMAI & TOCHI by Chef James Antolin: Japanese Street Food & Solid Desserts (First Look)

Ikomai-30.jpg

IKOMAI  is a collaboration of Chef James Antolin and Nagoya Chef Hide, serving progressive Japanese street and comfort food. The premium casual concept is an extension of their Saturday Salcedo market stall of the same name, which means “Let’s Go” in Japanese. TOCHI, on the other hand, is the raved about dessert line of Chef James, co-located in the same restaurant. The name literally translates to “Land”, an allusion to it being a “Land of Desserts.” 

It’s a nice place to hang out for good conversations, approachable Japanese food, and solid desserts in Makati.
