Manila to New York @FlyPAL

Yup, you got that right—15 hours only! Starting October 29, 2018, PHILIPPINE AIRLINES now flies non-stop to New York onboard their newest and most modern aircraft of its generation, the Airbus A350!

This, they say, is the second to the longest non-stop flight next to Singapore Airlines, and it’s the fastest way from Manila to the Big Apple with no more stopovers via Tokyo or Taipei, unlike my experience before that took 22 hours of travel time.

Plus, foodies flying out to New York with PAL, who want to enjoy authentic American steak, do not have to wait before landing to indulge their craving as business class passengers on the non-stop flights to New York will experience top global brand Wolfgang’s Steakhouse gourmet quality steak dinners on board.

Among my favorites in PAL’s prime New York route’s mouthwatering menu were Wolfgang’s Fillet Mignon, Striploin Steak, Grilled Chilean Seabass, French onion soup and the glorious New York Cheesecake.

It was definitely an upgrade experience for passengers flying to New York in Business Class! Check out the new extra wide body Airbus A350…

Foodies flying out to New York with PHILIPPINE AIRLINES who want to enjoy authentic American steak do not have to wait before landing to indulge their craving.

As business class passengers on the nonstop flights to New York will experience top global brand Wolfgang’s Steakhouse gourmet quality steak dinners on the 17-hour flights that will set a new record as the Philippines’ longest-ever commercial air route.

PaL

WOLFGANG’S STEAKHOUSE lives up to its fame that its steak is a genuine New Yorker. Using prime USDA Black Angus beef flown in weekly from the United States. The beef comes fresh, not frozen, and is a dry-aged for 28 days in an aging room. This results in a more tender and flavourful steak.

Among my favorites in PAL’s prime New York route mouthwatering menu includes Wolfgang’s Fillet Mignon, Striploin Steak, Grilled Chilean Seabass, French onion soup and the glorious New York Cheesecake.

Here’s a closer look at all the menu offerings…

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!

Chef-owner Chan Hong Meng first opened in Singapore’s Chinatown in 2009. Eight years later, he earned his first Michelin Star for the signature Soya Chicken Rice. Foodee Global Concepts, the group responsible for bringing Tim Ho Wan, Llaollao and Kam’s Roast to the Philippines, now adds Hawker Chan to their roster of international franchises.
