Vask Gallery-23.jpg

GALLERY VASK is a showcase of Chef Chele Gonzales’ best dishes and his passion to promote Filipino ingredients, using Spanish techniques and others inspired by his culinary travels. The restaurant recently received recognition as the Best Restaurant in the Philippines and the 39th Best Restaurant in Asia’s 50 Best for 2016.

Chef Chele’s signature 15-course Alamat Menu (2016 edition) embodies his greatest culinary creations to date. I think it’s the best degustacion menu in Manila today that highlights our Filipino heritage. Check out Gallery Vask’s 15-Course Alamat experience…

New Black Sheep Manila: Filipino-Chinese Modern Degustacion (A Review)

Blacksheep Manila-15.jpg

The new BLACK SHEEP MANILA is now a progressive Filipino-Chinese restaurant by Chef Patrick Go, featuring a “Filipino-driven menu with influences of Chinese flavor.”

Just to manage your expectations, note that this is totally different from the old Black Sheep in the W building. The owners decided to keep the name and just bring over Chef Patrick from the original Black Sheep crew.

Their selling proposition is the ability to construct your own degustacion menu from the available dishes, which are priced individually, a la carte. Since the menu is quite limited, we decided to just order all the items. Here’s what we think of the new Black Sheep…

The place has received mixed reviews, possibly because of the high expectations given the Shangri-La brand. We visited with our foodie friends recently, and here’s what we liked and what we think can still be improved at Hight Street Cafe…

THE PIG PEN: Foodie’s Favorite Fresh Casual Cafe in Nuvali! @theblackpigmnl

The Pig Pen-25.jpg

The Pig Pen is the fresh, casual little brother of The Black Pig located in Nuvali. Chef Carlos Garcia, together with Tricia Villacorta-Macdonald and Berna Fajardo-Garriz, created a cafe and concept of their popular European-inspired food using only the freshest local ingredients, but at a much affordable value.

What’s awesome about this is they elevated the food scene in Nuvali, providing one of the few foodie options (alongside Kanin Club) that aren’t fast food or commercialized franchise concepts. 

Here’s what to order and what to expect at The Pig Pen…

ATELIER VIVANDA MANILA by Chef Akrame: 50-day Dry-Aged Steaks! (Review)

As featured 10 Most Awesome NEW (Franchised) Restaurants in Manila 2016!

IMG_7774.jpg

Atelier Vivanda Manila is an integrated steakhouse, bistro, and wine & cheese bar (BRVT) concept by two-Michelin-star Chef Akrame Benallal of Paris. They are best known for their 50-day dry-aged meats imported directly from Paris, as well as their artisanal French-style comfort food

Atelier means “workshop of an artisan” while Vivanda comes from La Viende, which means “meat life“. The Manila branch is in partnership with Khristine Gabriel and Grace Lee, who loved their Chef Akrame experience in Paris so much that they decided to help bring it to the Philippines.

There was a lot of hype surrounding the opening of Atelier Vivanda in the metro. Here’s our experience…

It’s mainly a business hotel, but it’s also ideal for families because of its high-ceiling design in the common areas, signature Alfred restaurant, and strategic location in the heart of Makati (just beside Greenbelt)!

Isla Sugbu Seafood City: The Revival of the Art of SUTUKIL @TheGrandCon

When traveling, one of the things most people look forward to aside from sightseeing is eating. The food of a certain place speaks volumes about their history and culture. For Cebu, that is Sutukil, which is a three-way method of cooking seafood and meats.

It has lost its popularity over the years but Grandcon’s Isla Sugbu Seafood City aims to revive the Sutukil experience….
