BIZU: A Taste of Everyday Christmas! @BizuPH

Bizu New Menu-11.jpg

Bizu is our go-to feel good, happy place for comfort French cuisine and celebrating Christmas every day.

They’re best known for their world-class Parisian pastry creations, like celebration cakes and macaron de Paris, but their food has been getting better and better each year. Not bad at all for a Filipino-owned brand that was established in 2001.

Here’s what we love about the new menu of Bizu…

MANILA LIFE: Co-working Cafe before your NAIA3 Flight! @ManilaMarriott

DSC06405.jpg

Flying via NAIA3 just got better with the opening of Manila Life by Marriott Hotels, and the Runway Manila overpass from Resorts World. 

Given the crazy traffic in Manila going to the airport, we usually head there 5 hours before our flight. Obviously, the long wait can get boring. But thanks to the lounge-like cafe of Manila Life, we now have a good place to hang out to work and eat while we wait to board. 

Here’s how to have a pleasant departure experience on your next flight from NAIA Terminal 3…

Buca di Beppo Family Celebrations in Manila!

Buca di Peppo-41.jpg

The first time I tried Buca di Beppo was on my first trip to Cincinnati during my P&G Days. I remember enjoying the pizza and pasta in a very festive environment. After more than 100 stores worldwide, this popular Italian restaurant chain in America has finally opened its first store in Southeast Asia–in Manila, no less–thanks to entrepreneur Marcelino Florete Jr. of the Sbarro group.

The name is inspired by the original 1993 Italian restaurant in the basement of an apartment building in Minneapolis. Buca means “hole” or the Tuscan slang for basement, while Beppo is a nickname for Guiseppe, which is Joseph in Northern Italy.

Here’s what to expect and how to plan your own family celebrations at Buca di Beppo in Manila…

TSUTA: The First Michelin Star Ramen that totally deserves it.

Read first: TSUTA RAMEN MANILA: Is it better than Ramen Nagi or Ippudo?  https://awesm.pl/tsutaramenmanila

tsuta8

Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodles was the first Ramen Restaurant to ever win a Michelin Star in 2015.  

Master Chef and Owner Onishi Yuki opened Tsuta in Sugamo, Tokyo back in January 2012 to rave reviews, having won multiple awards and praises from ramen lovers across Japan. In 2015, it was awarded a prestigious Michelin Star, the first for a ramen restaurant at the time. 

Tsuta is known for its clear broth ramen, which is much lighter and clean-tasting on the palate than the more popular Tonkotsu-style–a rich and almost thick style of pork broth.  

Its success comes from Chef Onishi's dedication to quality and consistency, and his willingness to break with tradition by utilizing western ingredients such as black truffle and olives. The combination has proven successful, and ramen lovers from all over have shown their appreciation of it.    

TSUTA JAPANESE SOBA NOODLES
Tang Lung St, 18號V Point 地下 2 號 舖
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Open: 11:30am–8pm Daily
Telephone: +852 3188 2639
