Gallery by Chele & Carlo: Flavor-Forward and Fine Casual Vask

Update 12/21/2018: As featured in 10 Best New Restaurants in Manila (2019 Homegrown Edition)!

Gallery by Chele is a new restaurant concept by Chef Chele Gonzales and Carlo Villaflor based on the learnings from Vask Gallery and Tapas Bar.

It’s flavor-forward; celebrating local ingredients in the Philippines refined by Spanish culinary techniques.

I like the casual, open ambiance with inviting wood and nature-inspired interiors.

You can order a la carte and even dine in the bar area even without a reservation. Best of all, the tasting menus are priced reasonably.

Where to Eat Lobster All-You-Can in Manila! @MarriottManila

Seafood lovers rejoice! Marriott Café is serving Lobster All-You-Can in their buffet!

Chefs Digest: Gallery By Chele

Chele Gonzales is probably one of the Philippines’ most high-profile chefs, who has made an impact on fine dining and culinary circles in Manila.  He garnered international fame from his then-restaurant, ‘Vask’, which was ranked amongst the best in all of Asia, having landed Best in Philippines and 35th in Asia in 2017 by The Wolds 50 Best.

2018 marks a new beginning for Chele, with the closing of Vask and rebranding his operations to introduce Gallery By Chele.

According to Chele, Gallery is the next evolution of Vask and this time around, he has officially partnered with Chef Carlo Villaflor—who has worked under him for years—to take the next step on their culinary journey.

The duo brings the same skills and experience that made Vask the best in the Philippines and applies those tried and true methods to Gallery By Chele.  With Chele’s global perspective and Carlos’ knowledge of local flavors and ingredients, they have crafted a menu for Gallery that is a step away from the high-end atmosphere of Vask for a more laid-back and casual dining experience.

Must-try Camiguin Food (and Where to Find Them!)

Camiguin is a small island off the coast on the northern side of Misamis Oriental. Second only to Batanes as the smallest island in the Philippines, Camiguin spans just 238 sq. km. At its longest, it is just 23 kilometers or basically the whole stretch of EDSA.

Despite its size, Camiguin is a trove for foodies. Most of the food is still hugely Filipino, but International influences are slowly creeping in. Thanks in part to the expats who settled in the island, and the growing tourist community with varying palates.

Here’s a roundup of our food finds at Camiguin:Read more
