MADE NICE Supper Club by Young New York-Trained Filipino Chefs!

(As featured in 10 Most Awesome New Homegrown Restaurants That Matter in Manila 2016!)

Made Nice Supper Club-24.jpg

Gabbi is the daughter of Neil of Neil’s Kitchen fame, while Raulito comes from the Fores clan of Mamou. It’s inspiring to see the next generation of restaurateurs going back to Manila and contributing to the flourishing vibrant dining scene in their homeland.

My wife and I had a date night with some friends at Made Nice. Here’s a first look into this Supper Club…

MATIAS BBQ: Cebu’s Favorite Barbecue Spot! (Review)

Matias BBQ

One favorite street food of Pinoys is barbecue–pork or chicken meat or giblets skewered on sticks and cooked over a charcoal grill.

For Cebuanos, the go-to place for barbecue is Matias in Mandaue City. Nestled under the shade of sweet star apple trees, this open-air eatery sells very affordable pork barbecue, chicken barbecue, chorizo, pork belly, balbacua, and other local dishes.

The secret to keep locals coming back is their delicious sweet red sauce and value-for-money dishes.

Here’s what we liked at Matias…
