The Choice Year V

We’re now in a Golden Age of Philippine Restaurants and Hotels that we’ve never experienced before.

In the first six months of this year alone, over 500 new restaurants opened … and that’s only all over Metro Manila! The construction boom in hotels and resorts all over the country is likewise accelerating at a rapid pace.

Every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there’s a new restaurant opening its doors. There are a lot of great new dining choices, side by side with the perennials, the classics that we grew up with. As food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, we’re always very curious about the crowd favorites. The popular vote, if you will. What are the beloved favorites? Let the voice of the people be heard!

Our Awesome Planet, the country’s #1 food blog and one of the Top 50 travel blogs in the world; and the Food Writer and Blogger Collective known as the KTG (Kain Tulog Gang); together with the prestigious World Food Expo (WOFEX), The Ultimate Food Show Experience, have partnered to conduct the People’s Choice for the Favorite Food, Restaurants, Hotels, and Chefs …. Or simply, “The Choice”.

S Kitchen Sheraton Sunday Fiesta Buffet! @SheratonManila

Read first: Sheraton Manila Hotel: Secrets of Sheraton Staycation

After my Sunday Fiesta buffet in Sheraton, I knew this would be a perfect place to bring my balikbayan and international guests for a taste of Filipino cuisine but in a modern luxurious setting.

S Kitchen features a wide spread of international selections from East to West, but unlike other hotel buffets in Manila, its focal point is its Filipino station. You’ll love the Lechon de Leche stuffed with Paella, truffle kare-kare, homemade native delicacies and, of course, the “paluto station” that serves fresh seafood—crabs, shrimp, shells and even a whole lapu-lapu (grouper) cooked to your own liking!

Even the interiors of S Kitchen have a Filipino touch, from the traditional fish net inspired chandeliers to the Igorot-printed tiles.

Here’s what you’ll find at S Kitchen’s Sunday Fiesta Buffet priced at Php 2,500 only…

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

As featured in 10 Best Restaurants/Cafes of One Bonifacio High Street!

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.

Websitehttp://www.wolfgangssteakhouse.ph/

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

As featured in 10 Best Restaurants/Cafes of 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:
