We’ve already tried Lulu twice and been to Hooch three times. Here are our favorites…

WILD FLOUR Cafe + Bakery by Chef Walter Manzke in Makati! (A Review) @WildFlourManila

Wildflour Makati-6.jpg
WILD FLOUR MAKATI is the Makati expansion of the popular bakery and cafe by Chef Walter Manzke, located along the Leviste food street in Makati. It’s bigger, with improved interiors, and a better, off-mall Salcedo neighborhood location.

I love how they executed their concept, comfort food line-up, and chill ambiance, which makes it a great place to hang out with your foodie friends. Here’s our Wild Flour Makati experience…

My AMARI WATERGATE BANGKOK Experience #AmazingThailand

Amari Watergate Spa and Dinner-58.jpg

AMARI WATERGATE is a 5-star hotel in Central Bangkok. It’s strategically located in front of Platinum Mall near the Pratunam shopping area.  

I was a bit apprehensive about going to Bangkok because of the Martial Law situation there, but Amari Watergate gave me a warm Thai welcome. This erased all my doubts and fears about the safety and security in the capital. 

Check out my Amari Watergate Bangkok experience…

TODD ENGLISH FOOD HALL MANILA: What you Need to Know About the First Celebrity Chef Restaurant in Manila! @SMAuraPremier

As featured in BEST OF TAGUIG: 10 Most Awesome NEW Restaurants in BGC & Taguig 2014! 

TODD ENGLISH Food Hall-85.jpg

TODD ENGLISH FOOD HALL is officially Manila’s first Celebrity Chef Restaurant opening at the SM Aura Premier! It is also the first restaurant that sets the trend for the Food Hall concept in Manila.

A Food Hall is a communal dining space with well-curated stalls or food stations. It is NOT a buffet, because you can order from one or any of the stations. It is NOT a food court, because the food is typically handmade, with a cohesive theme.

Todd English Food Hall is all about quality of food with provenance, and a mix of cuisine that is eclectic and inspired across 9 food stations.

Here’s what you need to know about Todd English Food Hall in Manila…
