Seascape Village: Golden Fortune vs. Lola Ina’s

The family is loving crabs these days and the best place to indulge in these is at Seascape Village paluto market.

We tried the crab and seafood feasts in two restaurants: Binondo’s Golden Fortune vs. Dampa’s Lola Ina’s. Here’s our experience.

 

First Things First

Seascape Village, which opened its first phase of the seaside mall with 13 Filipino/Asian paluto restaurants, is a mixed-use coastal development in the Manila Bay area located beside Sofitel and Manila Film Center.

We featured Go Go Kitchen vs. Mazu Seaside Diner in this post: Seascape Village Market: The Best & Cleanest Paluto Market in Manila?!

It’s similar to the dampa paluto concept, and they make sure their pricing is always at par with Seaside Dampa Macapagal.

You pay for the market price of the crabs which costs 500-600/kilo.

Wolfgang Steakhouse BGC: Best Steak Brunch in Manila! #OneBHSEats

During my recent #OneBHSEats food tour, most of the participants were raving about how good the steak was at Wolfgang’s. We recently visited the resto with the family for an awesome steak brunch experience in BGC.

Here are some tips on what to order from the menu, how much the items for consideration are and how best to enjoy the experience.


First Things First

Wolfgang Steakhouse BGC is the 3rd and flagship branch of the Wolfgang Zwiener joint venture with Raymund Magdaluyo in Manila.

Ideally, Wolfgang wanted to open first in BGC, but it took a while to find a perfect corner spot fronting a garden with a street view of Bonifacio High Street.

Wolfgang Menu: Brunch Specials Menu | Prime Steak & Chops Menu

This is the best Wolfgang Steakhouse branch because of its young contemporary ambiance perfect for that NY-Steakhouse Brunch vibe in BGC.

It has all the classic Wolfgang Steakhouse elements: alabaster chandelier, mosaic tiles ceiling, wooden floors and chairs plus a touch of contemporary elements—cove lights, banana plants and floor to ceiling windows.

Wolfgang Wine Program: White Wines: Chardonnay | Sauvignon Blanc, Notable White Wines | Red Wines: Pinot Noir, Merlot | Cabernet Sauvignon | Red Blends | Red Blends 2 | Shiraz, Zinfandel, Notable Red Wines | Port Wines, Dessert Wines | Large Format Bottles

Reserve their semi-private long wooden table for your brunch experience with family and friends.

LA PICARA: This Awesome Spanish Restaurant at One Bonifacio High Street

First, La Pícara, pronounced as la pí-cara (with emphasis on the pi), means the mischievious or naughty.

It’s a Spanish restaurant with Tropical Cuban/Central American-inspired design that transports you from the city into an oasis in the center of the Philippine Stock Exchange.

The food was surprisingly very good, Spanish food with a naughty playful twist of Filipino ingredients or Asian interpretation but still classy elegant Spanish food.

We tried it three times in the last few weeks before their grand opening. Here’s what we loved that you should try:

AQUA Boracay: The Secret of Boracay’s Best Day Pool Club!

Aqua Boracay is the best Day Pool Club in Boracay not only because of its Pool Party events but because it serves one of the best Spanish-inspired beach cuisines by Chef Chele Gonzales of Gallery by Chele fame.

Most people miss out on Aqua because they think it’s an exclusive private club where there’s nothing to do if there are no pool party events. Some think it is closed for construction. What they don’t know is that this is, in fact, one of the best places to eat and enjoy a pool party in the New Boracay.

Here are the secrets of the best day pool club in Boracay…

 

First Things First

It is easily accessed via e-trikes (₱120 special trip) passing through the back end of Balabag Lake at the back of D’Mall.

The Day Pool Club is open but the rooms are still under construction.

AQUA BORACAY
Bulabog Beach, Balabag, Boracay Island, Malay 5608, Malay, Aklan
Day Pool Club Operating Hours: Open Daily 11.00 am – 8.00pm

Aqua is located at the beachfront along the back beach called Bulabog.

This part of the island is nice during high tide and feels like a hideaway from the busy White Beach.

LOS INDIOS BRAVOS: Why You Have to Try the Best English Pub in Boracay

What I like about Los Indios Bravos is that it features the signature pub food recipes of Chef Kenneth Cacho and Chef Norbert Gandler of ISCAHM fame while celebrating the best of all-Filipino Craft Beers (on tap), Brown and White Spirits of the Philippines at the same time. Most importantly, it pays tribute to “Los Indios Bravos”—the Brave Natives of the 1800’s, Filipino intellectuals and warrior-poets and the Tirol Family of Boracay Island.

Bong Tirol, Martin Jickain and wife Maggie Tirol established the new Los Indios Bravos hidden at the back of White House in the New Boracay.

We tried most of the food and drinks, and here are our favorites that you should not miss at the island’s best English pub…

Tapenade is one of our favorite restaurants in the metro for all-day dining and meetings with friends or business associates because of the salad bar and the Mediterranean take on the food. You can eat healthily and not be bloated after the meal. What’s more, each dish is something different from what’s usual in Manila.

Here’s what we like in the latest menu of Tapenade at Discovery Primea.
