HATCH 22 Cafe & Bakery: Rockwell Power Breakfast! @hatch22ph

Hatch 22 - Our Awesome Planet-44.jpg

Hatch 22 is Rockwell’s All-Day Breakfast Cafe & Bakery by Raymund Magdaluyo, Ivan Salameda & Erwan Heussaff, located where Crustacia used to be.

Its name is a play on the “Catch 22” phrase, because they don’t want to be stuck with just being identified as a breakfast place, but also one with an adaptive menu, depending on the time you arrive in the resto.

Is it all hype or does it deliver on quality of food and overall dining experience? Check this out …

SARSA Kitchen + Bar by Chef Jayps - Our Awesome Planet-28.jpg

SARSA by Chef JP Anglo is making waves in the competitive BGC dining scene, providing Filipino and Negrense Food with contemporary touches while using the best local ingredients.

Chef Jayps is best known as a judge for the Master Chef Pinoy Edition and for his modern resto bar, MuShu Asian Restaurant & Lounge in Bacolod. He is also the favorite Chef of Kris Aquino.

SAMGYEOPSAL: Lovin’ the Korean Grilled Pork Belly BBQ Experience…Yum! @KTOManila

Samgyeopsal - KTO - Our Awesome Planet-31.jpg

Samgyeopsal, one of the most popular Korean dishes, refers to pork belly meat slices grilled on your table. It’s name literally means: three (sam; 삼) layered (gyeop; 겹) flesh (sal; 살) referring to the layering of fat and meat. In fact, there’s a Samgyeopsal Day celebrated every 3rd of March (sam 삼-sam; 삼) where all people should eat Samgyeopsal. 🙂

We went all the way to the Gangneung province to taste and experience what authentic Samgyeopsal is like in Korea…

In most features for Ultimate Taste Test, Yuan’s Wings is consistently mentioned because of its Original Chicken Wings. Their version has the right balance of spicyness, sweetness, and tanginess, and we like it because it’s a bit different from your usual soy garlic flavor.

Congratulations to Jeremy Salvan, IT guy by profession but foodie at heart, for winning the Top Overall Spot (Main Dish category) in the Ultimate Taste Test XI!

I remember Ivory going to one of the Ultimate Taste Test events before as a foodie because of her love for food and her dream of one day making her own mark in Manila’s culinary scene.

Fast forward to 2013, Ivory is the 3rd placer of Masterchef Pinoy Edition (known as “Kusinera Fashionista”) and has launched her food business, The Sultry Chef in Mezza Norte at Trinoma.

Everybody loves her roast beef, pasta, and anything else she creates. She has a very lovable personality and always tries to give her best service when manning her own stall.

Congratulations to the Sultry Chef for winning the #2 spot in Ultimate Taste Test XI!
