NAMARI: The Best Japanese Teppanyaki We had in Pampanga!

Namari, by Chef Chris Oronce, is a Japanese Bistro in Pampanga that features a Teppanyaki Omakase and an Izakaya-inspired Japanese bar.

Namari is Japanese for lead, a very sturdy metal—a name reflecting the Chef’s successful career despite all the odds.

For Chef Chris, giving back to his native Pampanga meant opening twin restaurants: Namari Japanese Bistro and Cactus Jack American Steakhouse in the new Best Western Hotel Metro Clark (the old Saver’s Mall).

We love the food by Chef Chris Oronce, who worked at the renowned Nobu restaurants in Las Vegas, New York and Shibuya in Japan.

When he returned to Manila, he held the the executive chef position at Wafu in Greenhills, where we had a taste of his teppanyaki omakase. Currently, he is the executive chef of the successful Wolfgang Steakhouse franchise in Manila.

The chef’s new Namari offers Japanese Teppanyaki Omakase experience that’s worth the drive all the way to Pampanga.

KANTO Freestyle: Best Filipino Breakfast in Manila!

Late risers, rejoice! Feast on your fave breakfast food, any time of the day.

Kanto Freestyle is a 24/7 all-day breakfast concept featuring ridiculously affordable Filipino and Western fare. They offer pancakes, eggs Benedict, Spam, pork belly and the usual silog.

The owners wanted to revolutionize the kanto/karinderia image, by uplifting the same kind of breakfast items you’ll find in eateries all over the Philippines.

But why add the word “Freestyle” to “Kanto”? Because, here, you can mix and match your morning meal favorites. Make your own breakfast with different tapas, bacon strips, tocino and even have your eggs prepared just the way you like them—sunny side, scrambled, boiled or poached!

Have you Always Dreamed of Becoming a Food Entrepreneur? Here’s How …

Have you always dreamed of becoming a food entrepreneur?

Have you been sitting on a food and beverage business idea?

Is your food business stuck in neutral?

Are you planning to expand, but confused about your next step?

If you said YES to any of these questions, then the Entrepreneurship and F&B Specialist Seminar is for you.

Slated this July at Hexagon Lounge, in RCBC Plaza, Makati City, the program is a series of six sessions  that aims to help food entrepreneurs  through all the steps of creating a business, from key concepts, strategies, and practical skills necessary in managing, owning, and operating a profitable food and beverage business.

Leading the team of experts is Chef John Cu-Unjieng, owner of Jam Foods & Co., and joining him are Anton Diaz, founder of Our Awesome Planet Blog & Paolo Sambile, along with a group of F&B professionals as guest speakers.

It is quite hard to get an accurate picture of the food business climate here in Manila. People have ideas and are motivated to start something, but they don’t know how and where to go to get the right information, and this is where we come in. What we want to do in this seminar is to present an accurate picture to potential food entrepreneurs so they could avoid the costly mistakes. “says  Cu-Unjieng

He adds: “We will not just focus on the planning, execution, and survival of the food business, but we also want potential entrepreneurs to have a good understanding of the issues crucial to deciding to start the business. We will provide a reality check for them.

#Restaurants, Bonifacio Global City

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.

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

Agimat Foraging Bar and Kitchen (A Review)

Agimat is the flagship foraging bar concept of Liquido Maestro by Kalel Demetrio x  Modern Filipino Tapas by Chef Niño Laus in the heart of Brgy Poblacion.

The name and concept are inspired by Filipino folklore: the mysterious amulet known for warding off evil or the mythical charm noted for developing instant attraction to the bearer.

Agimat promises a magical experience for those looking for mystical ambiance, otherworldly cocktails and spellbinding food that celebrate everything indigenously Filipino.

Here’s what we think of Agimat Foraging Bar & Kitchen…
