Bizu New Menu-11.jpg

Bizu is our go-to feel good, happy place for comfort French cuisine and celebrating Christmas every day.

They’re best known for their world-class Parisian pastry creations, like celebration cakes and macaron de Paris, but their food has been getting better and better each year. Not bad at all for a Filipino-owned brand that was established in 2001.

Here’s what we love about the new menu of Bizu…

MANILA LIFE: Co-working Cafe before your NAIA3 Flight! @ManilaMarriott

Flying via NAIA3 just got better with the opening of Manila Life by Marriott Hotels, and the Runway Manila overpass from Resorts World. 

Given the crazy traffic in Manila going to the airport, we usually head there 5 hours before our flight. Obviously, the long wait can get boring. But thanks to the lounge-like cafe of Manila Life, we now have a good place to hang out to work and eat while we wait to board. 

Here’s how to have a pleasant departure experience on your next flight from NAIA Terminal 3…

Buca di Beppo Family Celebrations in Manila!

Buca di Peppo-41.jpg

The first time I tried Buca di Beppo was on my first trip to Cincinnati during my P&G Days. I remember enjoying the pizza and pasta in a very festive environment. After more than 100 stores worldwide, this popular Italian restaurant chain in America has finally opened its first store in Southeast Asia–in Manila, no less–thanks to entrepreneur Marcelino Florete Jr. of the Sbarro group.

The name is inspired by the original 1993 Italian restaurant in the basement of an apartment building in Minneapolis. Buca means “hole” or the Tuscan slang for basement, while Beppo is a nickname for Guiseppe, which is Joseph in Northern Italy.

Here’s what to expect and how to plan your own family celebrations at Buca di Beppo in Manila…
