SAGANA Epicerie & Bistro: Sustainable French Food by Chef Marc Aubry in Manila (REVIEW)

Sagana26

Sagana Epicerie and Bistro is the latest Farm-to-Family French restaurant concept by Chef Marc Aubry. Located in the same spot as his old bistro, Champetre, Chef Marc still offers French food but now highlights farm-fresh, organic, and locally-sourced ingredients.

Make no mistake though, despite its Filipino-sounding name, Sagana is a full-fledged French restaurant. It doesn’t try to make anything Filipino.

“Sagana” refers to abundance and is a fitting tribute to the rich produce and diverse ingredients of the Philippines.

Here’s what we loved about Sagana…

SMX Convention Center at SM Aura Premier is not just any events place. It is a multi-purpose event center inside one of the most recognizable malls in Taguig. It is the humble offspring of the huge and grand SMX Convention Center in Pasay, Manila. This one might not be as big as the original, but what it lacks in space, it makes up for in versatility and adaptability. 

Recently, they opened their function hall to people who wanted a taste of the amazing food by M Catering and to display just how diverse the place can be.
