12/10 is a Japanese restaurant by Thea de Rivera and Gab Bustos, also known as The Girl + The Bull. The name of their second restaurant is a tribute to their anniversary date. The restaurant is an izakaya-inspired drinking joint featuring a customize-your-own degustation.
It’s like the younger, hip brother of Mecha Uma–another “graduate” of the BF Aguirre Food Street– offering contemporary Japanese cuisine to a mainstream foodie audience in the metro.
Went on a date with Rache plus the boys at 12/10, and here’s what we think it…

SM Mega Mall successfully rebranded itself as a foodie destination with the exciting Mega Fashion Hall restaurants this 2014 Christmas season. Congratulations to the SM Mega Mall team!
Here’s a wrap-up guide of the 10 Best NEW Restaurants at SM Mega Mall:
IPPUDO is the most popular Hakata-style Tonkotsu (pork-based) ramen in the world. It was founded in 1985 by Ramen King Shigemi Kawahara in Fukuoka City, Kyushu.
Its name literally means “One Wind Hall” and is symbolic for the restaurant’s going against the wind and revolutionizing the ramen era of the time. It was the first shop to offer ramen in a carefully crafted setting, so that both men and women can enjoy an elegant bowl of noodle soup. It was also the first to refer to its broth by colour Shiro (white) for the classic and Aka (red) for spicy.
After months of waiting, Ippudo Philippines has finally opened to complete the Ramen Craze in Manila. 🙂
Here’s what to expect from the Ippudo experience in Manila (in comparison to Ippudo Singapore)…
TUAN TUAN is a homegrown Chinese Brasserie concept specializing in Mui Garden’s Curry (by Vancouver’s Chef Gordon Mui), Deer Garden’s Halibut Fish Soup, and Tuan Tuan’s Snowy Baked Buns,set in a French-inspired ambiance.
