SORU IZAKAYA BGC: Takes The Art of Sushi to the Next Level!

Combine sushi and playful art equals a certified Instagrammable visual feast! You’ll definitely feel guilty about touching the mayo art!

Soru Izakaya provides its customers with a classy yet casual dining experience through its quality food and artistic ambiance. Inspired by the Robatayaki style of Izakaya, which means Gastropub in English.

Rather, Soru Izakaya’s menu offers a variety of new and exciting choices through its modern take on traditional Japanese dishes. Here are some of the dishes we tried…

RICO’S LECHON MANILA: Cebu’s Best Lechon Opens its First Branch in Manila!

Cebu’s favorite lechon is coming to Manila this August 3!

Now, there’s no need to fly to Cebu if you’re craving for that perfectly roasted pig from the iconic Rico’s Lechon.

As the pioneer of the famous Spicy Lechon, the secret to their success lies in how they prepare the pig, seasoned only with traditional herbs and spices, and it has always been this way ever since owner Enrico Dionson started the business in 1997.

The menu also highlights other Filipino faves besides lechon. Rico’s has always been my go-to spot whenever I visit Cebu, and here’s why we couldn’t be more excited!

Here’s why Shangri-La at the Fort continues to provide the best staycation experience in BGC ever since they opened …

Going Savage! (Created by Chef Josh Boutwood)

By doing away with the pretentiousness one would typically expect from Fort Bonifacio’s higher-end restaurants, Savage is a breath of fresh air that is as familiar as it is—in its own way—innovative.

No gas or electric stoves, no foams, no spherification. Here you’ll find a rustic menu with hearty servings made the good old-fashioned way.

Wood, fire and a grill.

A testament to humankind’s ongoing attempts at making Mother Nature taste delicious. Savage takes humanity’s most basic culinary premise and delivers great tasting food that not only looks amazing, but tastes amazing as well.

 

P1077217.jpg
Off the beaten path, Savage is quietly tucked away in The Plaza at Arya Residences.

The plaza is home to a handful of high-end dining establishments and foot traffic is light to moderate during the weekdays. (With evenings and weekends being the busiest times.)

It’s a nice cozy location compared to the busier parts of BGC and we recommend visiting the place if you want a more laid-back dining experience.

G/F The Plaza, Arya Residences, McKinley Pkwy, Taguig, Metro Manila
Hours: 11am–3pm, 6pm–10pm Daily

CUBA LIBRE: Is Manila Ready for Cuban Cuisine? (First Look)

Cuba Libre-2.jpg

CUBA LIBRE is a Cuban restaurant where customers feel as though they are eating home-cooked meals that you can find in Grandma’s kitchen.

Bringing in food that is celebratory, homecooked and accessible to the Philippines in a cantina style setting.

Both Cuba and the Philippines were colonies of Spain at the same time, so it’s not hard for Pinoys to enjoy the meals, with dishes that share similar flavor profiles.

Cuba Libre-17.jpg

It features striking décor, festive lights, art-covered walls, and affordable prices at a prime location in Serendra BGC. It’s not hard to be curious and try what Cuba Libre has to bring…

A pineapple mojito costs Php99 and full meal start at Php 250 complete with a main dish, side dishes, and seasoned rice.

ArtBGC 2017: Awesome Murals by Champions of Passions! (and Where to Find Them?)

ArtBGC2017-24

Bonifacio Global City has always been a huge advocate of public art. The beauty of public art is in its accessibility. It’s not confined to a gallery or enclosed in a museum. People from all walks are given the chance to witness and appreciate art as part of their daily lives.

This year, through the help of Pinto Art Museum, BGC worked with individual artists and artist groups such as Solana Perez, BISKEG Art Collective, and John Paul Antido to paint their passion on various locations.

Here’s a quick tour of the new murals around BGC…
