JING TING: Craving for Northern Chinese Noodles & Dumplings in Manila? @CityofDreamsPH

Jing Ting-25.jpg

JING TING is a 92-seater Northern Chinese Cuisine casual restaurant by the City of Dreams group, located at the upper ground level of the COD retail area.

Its name means “a little house” or “resting place” and is inspired by Northern Chinese “Hutongs.” A Hutong is a gathering place in an alley lined with gray-tiled houses and buildings in a traditional residential city in China like Beijing. 

It’s a cool new place to eat in City of Dreams, especially when you’re craving for Northen-style dimsum and hand-pulled noodles, Beijing Style. 

Here’s what to expect and what to order in Jing Ting…

The new Big Crunch Fry & Shake is not only a breading mix for chicken, it’s also a flavor mix. We rarely fry our food, but we decided to try this since we’ve also been looking for easy recipes to cook at home and improve our baon options for the boys.

Here’s a photo essay of our Big Crunch Fry & Shake Chicken Project, which you can also try at home…

ROBOT RESTAURANT: An Exciting Modern-Day Kabuki Experience in Tokyo!

coverlogo

Robot Restaurant is a modern-day cabaret show that has become one of Japans top tourist attractions

The live entertainment is a crazy combination of eastern and western pop culture, modern dance, light-shows, Japanese mecha, and live anime! The only way to truly describe Robot Restaurant is that, it is a type of modern-day Kabuki.  

The 90-minute spectacle is divided into four acts that feature an array of friendly and heroic creatures who have to fend off an invasion by the Evil Robot Empire or something — to be quite honest we weren't really sure what was going on, but we loved every minute of it!  

However, visitors shouldn't expect a typical dining experience, as it's more about the show than food. While meals are available for an extra charge, you can also buy refreshments and snacks between each act. 

If you ever find yourself in Tokyo and have a few minutes to spare, with a few bucks to spend, Robot Restaurant should be on your to-do list when visiting Tokyo.  It is something that is purely Japanese and something you can only see in Japan. 

(Tip: Eat before you watch the show, so you can focus on the amazing performances and animatronics.) 


ROBOT RESTAURANT
160-0021  1-7-1 Kabukicho Shinjuku Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan
Hours:
3:30pm—11:30pm Daily
Phone:

The Manila Symphony Orchestra (MSO) is a 55-piece world-class ensemble founded in 1926. It is regarded as Asia’s first symphony orchestra.

Ilonggos were in for a treat when MSO played their hearts out in two of the most iconic places in Iloilo as part of the 80th Iloilo City Charter Day celebration.

 

The two-night spectacle was under the baton of master conductor Professor Arturo Molina. On August 25 and 26, the Manila Symphony Orchestra wooed music lovers with “Sweet Symphonies: Bach vs. Beatles” and “Soundtracks and Symphonies” at the iconic Molo Church and the Iloilo Convention Center, respectively.

Here's what happened during the grand two-day celebration…

Eat Sustainable Local Food for Our Sustainable Future! @WWF_Philippines

Sustainable Food Sustainable Future-24.jpg

Sustainable Food is all about knowing if you are eating locally sourced food produced by eco-friendly methods and ingredients with the profits going back to support the local community. 

What this means is importing ingredients is out, but eating local ingredient is in; eating at foreign franchises is out, and eating at a socially responsible local restaurant is in.

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, with the mission of “Transforming Lives, organized a benefit dinner to educate Filipinos on the importance of sustainable consumption and supporting our local farmers and fishermen by eating local. 

Here’s a photo essay of the Sustainable Food, Sustainable Future benefit dinner…
