I ♥ COVENT GARDEN! @UKinPhilippines

Covent Garden - London - Our Awesome Planet-11.jpg

COVENT GARDEN is a historic building converted into a shopping centre in 1980. It’s famous for its cute cafes, pubs, small stalls, a craft market called Apple Market, and a tiangge called Jubilee Hall.  

It’s popular among Filipinos looking for a bargain and a cool place to eat before watching a show on the West End. According to Pepper, this is also the best place for Forex if you’re looking for a high exchange rate for your dollar.

Good thing we had our expert Pepper Teehankee, who lives half of the time in London. He suggested this cool Spanish resto hangout called CAMBIO DE TERCIO along Old Brompton Road, which was within walking distance from where we were staying.

10 Most AWESOME Chinese Restaurants in Manila! 恭喜發財 Kung Hei Fat Choi!

We love Chinese Food! Here’s a wrap-up of our favorite Chinese Restaurants in Manila where you can have the most awesome Chinese experience for your family celebrations :

1. GLORIA MARIS

Father's Day at Gloria Maris-36.jpg

GLORIA MARIS Restaurant, specifically the one in Greenhills, is our all-time favorite go-to place for authentic Cantonese food in Manila since 1995. My wife’s family likes holding their special celebrations here, and I love the yummy consistency of their food every single time.

Last year, Gloria Maris moved to a new location with an impressive fine dining ambiance and an introduction of modern Cantonese cuisine to take the dining experience to a whole different level.

Here’s our modern fine dining experience at Gloria Maris Greenhills:

Verdict

Overall, I love the home-grown Cantonese yumminess of Gloria Maris and how it has been consistent with the same Hong Kong chefs over the years. I love the new Gloria Maris ambiance and the modern Cantonese dining menu.

We usually eat lauriat-style everytime there’s a family celebration, and Gloria Maris still tops the list of Chinese Restaurants we have tried over the years in the metro.

Make sure to reserve one of the VIP rooms, to assemble your own lauriat menu, and to select the dishes with the cool presentation.

They are open all year round — even on Christmas Day and Holy Week — but don’t forget to make reservations because they get FULL, especially during peak special occasions.

Gloria Maris Shark’s Fin Restaurant
Located at Greenhills Shopping Center, Ortigas Ave.,
Missouri Street Corner Connecticut San Juan, Metro Manila
