12/10 December Love Affair! a hip Izakaya Joint by @thegirl_thebull (a review)

As featured in MAKATI: 10 Most Awesome NEW Restaurants in Makati 2014! @MakeItMakati 

12-10 Restaurant-8.jpg
12/10 is a Japanese restaurant by Thea de Rivera and Gab Bustos, also known as The Girl + The Bull. The name of their second restaurant is a tribute to their anniversary date. The restaurant is an izakaya-inspired drinking joint featuring a customize-your-own degustation.

It’s like the younger, hip brother of Mecha Uma–another “graduate” of the BF Aguirre Food Street– offering contemporary Japanese cuisine to a mainstream foodie audience in the metro.

Went on a date with Rache plus the boys at 12/10, and here’s what we think it…

MECHA UMA: “Absurdly Delicious” Food by Chef Bruce Ricketts!

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

Mecha Uma-54.jpg
MECHA UMA is a Chef-Driven Restaurant by Chef Bruce Ricketts of Sensei Sushi fame. The name is a Japanese expression for absurdly delicious food.

They serve predominantly Japanese food but are not limited to it. Foodies have raved about the Tasting Menu served Omakase-style (but is still dependent on the chef and what’s freshly available that day). They also serve an a la carte menu of the best dishes featured in the Tasting Menu.

We tried Mecha Uma’s a la carte menu with our Mercato Partners and here’s our experience…

ERI CURRY: Customize-Your-Own Curry by Chef Erica @Eri_Curry @SMMegaMall

ERI CURRY by Chef Erica-9.jpg

ERI CURRY is a local Japanese curry brand concept by Chef Erica, a Filipina Chef who grew up in Japan and is very passionate about Japanese food. Its name means Goddess of Curry, and is also unofficially inspired by the name of the chef.

The Japanese Curry craze is still not taking off in Manila because of its strong curry flavor that Filipinos aren’t familiar with. Eri Curry aims to address this by having a sweeter, more Filipinized curry flavor, a Customize-Your-Own Curry option, and a Chef/Model to promote the brand. 

Here’s our Eri Curry experience…

IPPUDO Philippines: #WorldFamousRamen Now in Manila!

Featured as MEGA FASHION HALL: 10 BEST New Restaurants @SMMegaMall in 2014!

Ippudo Philippines-72.jpg

IPPUDO is the most popular Hakata-style Tonkotsu (pork-based) ramen in the world. It was founded in 1985 by Ramen King Shigemi Kawahara in Fukuoka City, Kyushu.

Its name literally means “One Wind Hall” and is symbolic for the restaurant’s going against the wind and revolutionizing the ramen era of the time. It was the first shop to offer ramen in a carefully crafted setting, so that both men and women can enjoy an elegant bowl of noodle soup. It was also the first to refer to its broth by colour Shiro (white) for the classic and Aka (red) for spicy.

After months of waiting, Ippudo Philippines has finally opened to complete the Ramen Craze in Manila. 🙂

Here’s what to expect from the Ippudo experience in Manila (in comparison to Ippudo Singapore)…
