Every Brilliant Thing Manila-15.jpg

Every Brilliant Thing is the Manila adaptation of internationally acclaimed Duncan Macmillan one-character play about mental health awareness.

It’s like an interactive improv play that immerses you into the highs and lows of the mental health mood. Here’s what we love about #EveryBrilliantThingMNL …

(Spoilers Alert:  The play is a must watch and it’s better if you don’t know anything before watching it.)

NIKKEI NAMA BAR BGC: Japanese-Peruvian with an Awesome View at One Bonifacio

Nikkei Nama Bar-43.jpg

A big benefit of the Japanese diaspora is the merging of their culture, particularly their cuisine with the countries they emigrated too. Nikkei refers to the fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine. First popularized by Nobu Matsuhisa, the cuisine has since trickled down to smaller restaurants and found its way to Manila.

Nikkei has been in the Philippines for over 3 years now, and they recently opened their sister restaurant Nikkei Nama in One Bonifacio in BGC. Nama translates to “fresh” or “light” which reflects in the food served at Nikkei Nama by Head Chef Juan Barcos.

It caters to the younger, well-traveled appetite and value-conscious BGC dining crowd. It also exclusively features the Chifa (Chinese-Peruvian) rice bowls.

Here’s what we liked at Nikkei Nama…

 

Nikkei Nama
2/F One Bonifacio High, 28th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
Operating Hours: 11:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. (Monday to Thursday, Sunday) 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. (Friday to Saturday)

A traditional Argentinian steakhouse grill by Gastón Riveira in Buenos Aires, Argentina, La Cabrera is recognized as one of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2017. It opened its flagship store in Asia at 6750 Ayala Avenue Office Tower in 2014 and the second branch at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel end of 2018.

It’s one of our favorite steakhouses in Manila because of their charcoal-grilled steaks cooked over a traditional parrilla (iron grill). The best steak house in Mandaluyong City, it is the perfect place to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary!
