RAMEN NAGI: Opens First Concept Store with Truffle King Ramen!

Ramen Nagi Concept Store

Truffle fans rejoice! Ramen Nagi is bringing back their Truffle King Ramen that will only be available at the newly opened RAMEN NAGI CONCEPT STORE in BGC for a limited time (until December).

RAMEN NAGI is one of my favorite go-to ramen joints in Manila, known for their rich and bolder flavors where you can customize your ramen to your liking. Today, they recently launched the Ramen Nagi Concept store that offers the same classic menu but with a more modern and chic interior perfect for the working crowd of BGC.

Here’s what to expect at the first Ramen Nagi Concept Store…

TAITUNG: 5 Reasons to Visit on your next trip to Taiwan

Located on the Southeast of Taiwan, Taitung literally translates to “East of Taiwan.” Taitung makes up for 10% of Taiwan’s total land area, but only holds 1% of the country’s total population.

Taitung doesn’t seem all that popular when people talk of Taiwan. It’s always Taipei, Kaohsiung, Keelung, or Taichung. If your idea of a great vacation involves relaxing hotels and easy, outdoor activities, then Taitung just might be the one for you.Read more

La Petite Parisienne Guide to Food and Wine Pairing

La Petite Parisienne is a wine cellar, deli, pizzeria, and events place all rolled into one. Offering some of the widest selection of classic and premium wines directly imported from France to Manila, it is only apt that they also take part in educating interested parties in the intricacies of wine and the best ways to enjoy it.

La Petite Parisienne offers a multitude of classes about wine, one of them being the Wine and Food Pairing. I don’t claim to know a lot about wine. In fact, I just go for a Moscato or a Rosé without thinking twice whether they match my food or not.

Here’s what I learned at the Wine and Food Pairing Class at La Petite Parisienne
