Title: Latest restaurants you've tried
Post by: R-A-Y on July 24, 2004, 09:58:10 AM
Well since the latest topic about this has already been locked (maybe since it was almost a year ago or something) I decided to go make a new one for those who would like to place their feedback on the latest restos that you guys have tried :) I know Clickthecity has got the list, but then it doesn't have the quality feedback that it can get from the actual patrons ;) so just post your feedback here so that it can be a reference for people who would want to try out some places, wheter it be a the popular carinderia next door (There's a place in UP that I have heard of. waiting to try it out soo :D ) all the way into those sleek and swanky places

Me start ;D

MYLK: The outside appearance may be misleading (believe me that's the reason why I've never tried it before), because of its solid white walls coupled with other contrasting colors and sharp edges and corners,  but the food is excellent. A foreigner business partner tried  it out and he said it's one of the best places he has ever been to in the world! I agree :) Very quaint place with the touch of 'just like home' bed and breakfast atmosphere since some of the menus are just listed in some blackboard. The food is basically the collection of international dishes with no thme whatsoever. And it works! You can eat Chinese for appetizers and then Meditteranean for your main meal and they blend well with a glass of Australian wine. A good overall place that appeals to family and friends :D

Amoroma in Legaspi Village, near AIM and Greenbelt. It's a really nice Italian Resto, kinda homey in appearance, but the food is really nice, not too expensive either. Atmosphere is perfect for dates  ;)

Belissima

Located at the third floor of the new Fort complex where you find Gonuts Donuts and Fitness First. I first saw this when my gf and I were scouting for a place to bring the whole barkada to and it looked like a good place to chill out. And it is :)

You get to pick to either stay in some tables with hard wooden chairs (a bit ouch) or on the couches with low tables and large pillows. Good lighting. Very ambient. Food is pretty much ok. A bit steep though so be prepared to spend. Even we were caught off guard but then we really wanted to try the place out. It is more of a bar/lounge place.  The bathroom is also something to talk about. When you enter it, you feel like you're gonna go get a massage with the eucalyptus oil burning a low light that really relaxes you ;) Add to it a good al fresco balcony for that great way to end the week :)

And as for the music.... now this is the best part :D I'm a fan of the chillout and chillhouse (Brent, Elvin, and Jewo would know so you guys go check this place out ;) ) brand and this one did not disappoint. Wave after wave of melodic rhythms that go well with the cocktails they offer. If you listen to 89.1 when the Blue Room program is on, you will know what I am talking about :) I have an old high school friend who sometimes plays there and I have heard he rocks the house. I have to try and catch him one of these days.

I think it's a pretty new place and this one deserves a bit more recognition. Really great place if you love to listen to this kind of music and just take it easy ;)

i suggest everyone should try <b>dannylicious</b> at project 4, quezon city [just behind j.p. rizal street]. dami tao lagi kasi sarap ng mga barbecues and other inihaw treats.

and the best part is, hindi mahal! even corporate-looking people come over to have a taste of mang danny's inihaw.

I tried this before. imo nothing special you can get better food for the same price.

Tried Cena in Greenbelt. A bit expensive but the servings are good enough to share

Tasty: Look for it in Wilson street, Greenhills. Nice quaint place but then there is so little parking (the place can probably pack 50+ but there is only room for 5 cars). The food is good and it's cheap. You can be stuffed with just 100 bucks worth of food and drinks and it will be more than what you may usually eat at Jollibee or McDo. Try their porkchop rice or dumpling noodles. It's supposed to be their bestsellers. Great place to have dinner with family.

Best time to go there: 7:00pm on a Sunday. Get there around 15 minutes later and people coming from mass and badminton games will flock the place so try to time it right ;D

EB? EB? :D Woops off topic na ;D hehehe ;D

There's a popular resto here in the Pasong Tamo extension area, right beside the Starcbuks coffee shop.

Cantinetta: Italian resto with lots of good food and wine. You get a good helping of baked bread bursting with basil aroma for free if you just ask :D Remember to dip it in an olive oil and vinegar mixed with parmesan to make you anticipate the main course even more :D It's also a bit pricey, similar to Italianni's price but then the food is just superb. Definitely better than Italianni's wherein it's a bit modified to cater to a more pop generation. Try out their Margheritta pizza. Best i've ever tried since I went to a Roman pizzeria a few years ago :D !

Oh, ambience ;) it gets a bit noisy at times since the kitchen is open but you can stay in the smoking area so that it's more quiet (but of course, you will smell like a pack of cigarettes afterwards :P) and the sounds? A bit jazzy and chill :)

Try nyo Oyster Boy (they have 2 branches, one sa Greenhills Shopping center and the other sa Meralco Avenue). Food is good and price is very very reasonable. Nice hang out place coz the resto turns into a bar after 10pm. Dami drinks and cocktails. Beer (san mig light), if I'm not mistaken is only 20 or 25 bucks.

I think you are referring to chawan mushi. Its actually baked egg white.

If you're really looking for authentic Japanese food, I suggest you head for Little Tokyo along Pasong Tamo near Makati Cinema Square. A notable place there is Izakaya Kiku Fuji.

I agree ;D !!! Food here is excellent, not to mention they give free iced coffee (Brent said before it was Yakult. Too bad I never knew about the restaurant back then  :-[ ) Authentic setting as well. We are talking about bright walls and lighlt laminated wood panels, with the sushi bar in the middle flocked by a lot of people, thus making it really noisy. Don't be fooled by it's lack of luster. This is the place where businessmen bring their clients so do not be surprised to see some bigshots dining there. Food is a bit expensive though ;D

o nga! sarap ng Jap food dyan.

tasty dumpling?! buhay pa din ah... first time I had chow there was i think 12 years ago.. sa banawe branch before they transferred to retiro.

some places i really like:

Tempura - in greenhills (teriyaki boy copy); but i think its better.

Katre - med fusion resto, formerly toque beside alfredo's in tomas morato

Marina - love the oysters!

UVA - greenbelt 3

Hua Ting - chinese resto sa ground floor ng Heritage (pag libre lang.. i remember 1 bowl of sharks fin soup, good for one priced at P3,000)

O nga pala for those residing near san juan, i suggest you try out moksha bar and resto. beside gloria maris and near alex 3. its a nice quaint place with nice interiors, good food and drinks. perfect for kwentuhan.

pang EB?  :)

Yeah it's an ok place :) A friend showed it to us one time ;) Problem lang yung parking since it doesn't really have any except the little space in front of it and just sometimes uses the Alex III parking so when Alex III closes, alisan lahat sa place na yun since they close it with chains :P

Oh, it gets a bit smoky there sometimes since San Juan doens't have those smoking regulations :P

I love the place though :D Nice mellow light :) And beer  is at a reasonable price there too ;D

Tempura does not taste authentic. Its one of those fastfood pseudo Japanese restaurant types.

Oh yeah, I saw that Moksha place on TV yesterday I think. I was trying to figure out where I saw that place. Its on Abad Santos St., beside Mann Hann right?

Uva has good food and good ambience, it used to be in Tomas Morato.

So where is this Mr Chois Kitchen Located? :D

Hmmm.. for me UVA has good ambience and although I do not seem to be a fan of the food. There was a time when I orddered fried duck triangles and for some strange reason, it tasted like a tuna lumpia.

For places with acceptable food but with a good wine selection, try these 3 places:

Magnum (Greenbelt 2)
Cork (Powerplant Mall, Rockwell)
Gourmand (Net One Building, Fort Bonifacio)

They are good date places too ;)

Ebisu: It's in the new Eastwood mall. 2nd floor, on top of Starbucks and beside O Music Records. It's supposed to be a bar/ resto. Modern Japanese minimalist seems to be the theme of the place. Good food also. Priced reasonably as well. Dim yellow lights coupled with a loungy background music makes this a great hangout place :)

Pershana: Middle-Eastern type of food place. It's in the small food/shops complex in the street perpendicular to Katipunan. (also the street where McDonald's Katipunan is, hehe I forgot the name ;) :P)  Good food, reasonable prices, they also have a hookah. hehe! ;D

Yeah I agree that Sugi service is not up to par to the ambience and price that they give to their food. They can't even allow you to have their teapot left in your table so that you don't keep on asking for more. >:( Presentation wise, yeah it's good. Food, yep not bad although for some strange reason it doesn't taste as special as it looks.

Just tried Pepato in Greenbelt 2 last night. Excellent place. Looks really sassy, although I have a feeling that it can collapse anytime soon when you look at it from the outside, with all it's glass floors and metal braces. Inside, though, it's a nice quite place with a healthy amount of yellow light. The walls are decorated with various designs of pepper shakers. Food is good, although their house wine leaves a lot to be desired for the kind of place that it is. It's a bit on the expensive side, though. I found myself shelling out more than 1k for a 2 table dinner. But then the service is excellent. Waiters are very courteous and I have observed that they have been trained to accomodate foreigners because their English proficiency left me impressed. They are always aware of their surroundings too, since I spilled a glass of water and they were immediately prepared to change the table cloth. I believe their sea bass dishes are the crowd favorite. It's the same owner of Cibo and Cafe Bola, so it's more on the poppish Italian cuisine, but still expect the same great taste :D

Post by: R-A-Y on August 16, 2004, 08:57:02 AM
Just triedd 2 restos this weekend:

Gaudi: Located at 4th floor, Greenbelt 3. Look for it near Chimara. It's a Spanish steak place. The white walls and random mosaic tiles coupled with flowing wood in random portions of the ceilings and floors plus those colorful glass lanters show that it is inspired by the coastal Spanish cafe look. Food is pretty ok, although their best seller is really their steak, which they show you how it is conditioned before it is cooked. They cook it halfway in the kitchen and let it finish off in your dinner table using a very presentable hot plate with salt heated by an alcohol flame underneath. Makes sure that you really get it while it's hot ;) Of course, with good steak comes good wine ;) Pretty expensive place, though, but it's a nice place to treat your business clients to if they are a fan of meat ;D

Paparazzi: Italian resto inside Edsa Shangri-La hotel. Love the red wood and yellow lights. The place screams chill and drink some wine. Speaking of wine, they offer a wide variety of such, both from the old world and new world. Food is par for the course, though. Does not really justify the money you will shell out for it, so you may want to go here just for the wine and to relax with the easy lights and ambient music.

The German Club along Rufino in Makati. The food there is great (mostly German of course), especially their sausages. Ambiance is really really quiet, there's even a library with a table for around 8-10 so you can have a quiet evening with friends. The only downside is that there must be at least one member of the club in your group.

Di ok mag EB dun kasi masikip parking saka mga establishment medyo masikip din. Although notable yun Razon's dun. Galing sa Guagua, Pampanga, popular for its Halo Halo and Palabok. Masarap dun. Sikip lang talaga sobra.

Yeah I agree that there are nice places for dinner or dessert there, but the parking is just too small. Not to mention that lowered rides may have a difficulty getting in and out because of the steep incline. The other notable place there for me is Vanilla House of Cakes. Good cakes plus a free refill on your first cup of  coffee.

Actually the new place that may be a potential EB venue is the new complex in Meralco Ave. where the new Starbucks is open. Other restos are ssoon to follow and the parking there is huse, not to mention that there is a lot of free space to roam around. It's easy to spot it if there is an EB gathering there too ;D

The last resto I tried was at YATS (Wine Club) in Clarkfield. It was very expensive. Went there with my boss and two clients.

We spent about 65k for the dinner  :P Nakahatak sa price ay yung two bottles of wine na kinuha nila.

Good thing I wasn't the one paying  ;)

What wine was that? :o the Screaming Eagle?!?!?! :o I would surely want to get to that point in time when I deserve a 65k dinner ;)

Just tried out this old chinese resto in Shoppesville. It's Le Ching. Their spareribs rice toppings rule!!! As well as their big bottle soy milk. I think it's a 1 liter bottle, and it's only 45 bucks for freshly delivered ones. Not bad at all ;) (I think I'll get a regullar weekly stack from them next time ;D )The place is really not the one where you expect it to be fine dining, but believe me, these kinds of things don't matter at all when food is good. :D

Am not sure of the name but each bottle costs 20k. The most expensive bottle of wine that they have is priced at 1.5 Million  :o  At first our clients wanted to have a Don Perignon but it was not available.

Nope that's not the one either :) That one is already closed. This place we are talking about is actually nearer the Meralco Ave and Julia Vargas intersection ;)

Anyway, just tried Cafe Meditteranean last night. Food is pretty good although I have not tried their beef kebab or their pizzas which a lot of people have told me are their best sellers. Think fo it as a Mr Kebab or Behrouz but with the ambience. I would still rather go for Mr. Kebab though ;D

Fat Michael's. It's a small restaurant somewhere along South Superhighway that serves very good home cooked meals. Atmosphere is quite relaxing, although the furniture tends to be a little too homey. Their apple iced tea is worth trying, as is most of the things in their menu.

Ah :D That will be good engouh info. Thanks Benj ;D

I just remembered that I went to Di Marks in Wack-Wack road last weekend. I've been to Di Marks in Greenbelt so many times but I like the one in Wack-Wack road because it is small, secluded, and the al fresco area is really al fresco, where you don't feel like a smoked salmon for staying outside. This is basically due to the fact that a few cars pass by that area. Good for those barkada tambays ;) As usual, Di Marks has good food, although for me their pizza is one of the not-so-great. I like their cheesy onion soup and carbonara :)

I think you can even bring your own wine and they won't charge you for corkage ;)

My Angel's Kitchen:

Look for it along Connecticut St., Beside the Kamameshi House. Real cozy place with a country looking set of pastel colors and comfortable wooden chairs with soft cushions. Food is a wide variety of salads and some good grilled meat and fish. The way it is served is really more for the healthy eater, but it is so good!!! Their desserts are not bad at all as well. Try their Choco Lava. Good for 2 and my personal favorite. Friendly staff and for me, it really feels like an extension of home :)

Disccounts for people who pay in cash :) Also, they can customize the servings upon request :)

Good date places and if you would want to treat your family to a good night out :) Love the jazz music too :)

sarap nga dito. food is really delicious. you'd just have to wait a while to have your food served pero sulit naman. prices are not that expensive at all. it's a house converted to a resto. it's near evagelista street in makati. sure the people there would know how to get to the place.

The Oak Room:

it's in the 6th Floor of the Oakwood Premiere. Really sassy place with a nice view of the Glorietta 4 driveway. Food varies from different cuisines. I had a Tandoori chicken for appetizer and a Kung Pao Chicken (chicken nanaman?!?!?!) for my main course. They were pretty ok although it's not as superb as what should be in such an exquisite place. Very quiet place also. Of course, being a premiere resto the prices are quite on the steep side. If you are out for good food, maybe somewheree else, if you are out for treating your date to a nice quiet place, this would be nice. The tables by the windows would probably be the best place to have a dinenr for two expecially during the Christmas seasons where you can see the fireworks :)

Cafe A-Go-Go

It's located along Emerald Avenue, in the building across the Figaro coffee shop, along with other small cafes and restaurants along that area (There are so many of them already!!! I need to go to this area more often :o )

The place feels like some small secret club meeting ground, complete with different kinds of tables and different designs of couches and chairs, with the unpolished floor, unpainted walls, and soft mellow yellow lighting. It's like they just got whatever expendable furniture they had in each and every home and put it in there.This is where its appeal comes from. It's a very simple place where the price is good and the panini is even better. We tried the chicken basil sandwich and the Pinoy (pork barbecue with onions) sandwich, as well as their garlic mushroom appetizer. Served with a side of chips, it's a really satisfying meal especially when you just want something to fill your tummy to get through the night or any part of the day. They are served in a deep plastic tray wrapped almost waterproof tight for people on the go. Best paired with their fruit shakes or any beer, which costs an average of 35 bucks in this place.

Music is very 70's, with late 90's and 2000++ songs remixed for the disco era.

Since it's not Makati, expect the inside to smell a bit of cigarettes as this is also a hangout place for a lot of people. And I can't blame them for choosing the place. It's in the center of the commercial district with reasonable prices and good food!

For the Ai people, it's another place to have a small EB :) you can park the cars along Emerald Ave or in the pay parking lot nearby :)

Breakfast is served at any time and regularly check their blackboard for any specialty that comes up ass well as ffor their pasta of the day ;D

Just tried out Conways in Shangri-La Makati. It's a very sassy bar with nice ambience and very very low lighting. For a hotel bar and resto, the food was pretty good and reasonably priced, not to mention that it comes in a pretty generous quantity, although I think that they need to expand their selection a little bit more. They have happy hour from 5-9pm wherein you can drink all the San Miguel beer products that you can within that time or their Hardy's Shiraz. Acoustic is very well taken into consideration. No excessive echoes and the sounds are well balanced so as not to drown your voice but still set the mood.

The live band who was playing there at that time was Ntwine. This is what I have to say about them: Absolutely amazing!!!! Will try and see where this band will be playing next because I love their voices as well as their appeal.

Just tried the new Japanese restaurant in Metrowalk named Misato. What I remember about this place is that there was this American from the other table saying that the people who run this place know how to make authentic Japanese cuisine, and he was talking about this fried stuff he ordered. Well IMO it is more of a modern Japanese restuarant (think fo Saisaki and Takayama). When seen from outside, this place looks like some sort of elitist restaurant, but the ambience inside just screams family and friend kind of dining. Really relaxed :) Waiters are very courteous although a bit softspoken that sometimes it becomes difficult to hear them out. But don't let that distract you from their good service.
As for the food, well since it is more fo a modern Japanese restaurant, expect some crazy new dishes like the greeen fried chicken that I tried. It is actually chicken mixed in a batter of special herbs to give this unique taste when partnered with the teriyako sauce served with it. It still tasted like the normal fried chicken though. ;D My girlfriend ordered the Gyudon and I have to agree with her that it is one of the bet tasting Gyudons I have sampled. Their unagi roll is not so bad either. Complementary house tea is available upon request ;)
For a first timer to the place like us, it was easy to knwo what to try out first since they have labeled their bestsellers with a small rice roll drawing beside the name. The echo of the place does not make it that suitable for those mellow moments, but if you are with a group of friends or you would want to treat some girl out in a place that doesn't have to be fine dining but still offer good food (as a matter of fact, some fine dining restaurants here in the metro don't even offer good food at all :P ) then this is a good place. They even have an al fresco area outside where they have the grill that cooks those grilled entrees ;) Price? expect something similar to that of Dencios with a little bit more.

Just came from Trellis in Market Market (Long Waiting Line :o !!!)

Trellis is basically Dencios during the 1980s. And yes, the ceilings are filled with... trellises ;D (or is it relles? What's the plural of thsi word anyway? ???)

It's basically the same Dencios/ Gerry's kind of food with the Dencio/ Gerry's kind of price as well. They pride themselves with their crispy pata. Couple their crispy pata with the spicy dip it comes with, it is definitely a  winner. If you are out for some crispy and crunchy sisig, this is not the place to go to. Their sisig is more on the soft kind.

They have a lighter ambience, which is something I really like. The lights are easy to the eyes, since it is more fo the yellowish hue, but it is very much sufficient if you woould contact your business with some crispy pata and beer on the side  ;D

Just came from Club Halo last night. I dunno guys. Despite all the hype I see in magazines and other forms of media, I didn't like it. Walls we chipped, couches and chairs look like they are not taken care of, and the ambeince or at least the interior decorations looked cheesy :P Music is more on the house and hard house brands

The crowd? Well it was a mix. That's all I'll say about it  :-X

Aposento:

Located in Valero street, just across the Citibank building. It is a modern Filipino inspired bar/resto with dim ambient lights and cozy chairs. On one side of the place, is where the acoustic band plays. There's an enclosed smoking area on the 2nd floor that overlooks the band area. I believe bands start there around 10:30pm.

Food is pretty ok. Filipino style dishes coupled with their few take-offs on Spanish cuisine (Actually it's just the paella. More on that later). They have a pretty generous portion served for every listed food on the menu. We had their Aposento special appetizer which consisted of lechon kawali, squid rings, and chicken wings, with a barbecue sauce for dip. This was the best part of the meal. It tassted really good and the barbecue sauce went welll with any of the three. Best enjoyed with a nice cold beer. We also were feeling adventurous so we decided to try this sisig paella. The paella was ook but the sisig didn't go well with it. Probably a tomato-based rice meal never really goes with sisig at all. Someone said that their pork barbecue spare ribs was something to go for in there. For me it wasn't. The sauce was ok, but the pork parts didn't have too much meat on it. All we got were fatty lipids that mde the sauce a bit mroe sour than it should be. It didn't go well with the paella either.

Price of food and drinks are right for the place and is justifiable with the coziness and the courtueousness and promptness of the waiter and staff. In our stay there, I think they have changed our plates over three times so that it always feels refreshing to look at your table to eat some more. Expect to pay at least 250 bucks per person for food and a few drinks.

With the kind of music they play there, this place is best enjoyed with the barkada and some group of friends or office colleagues. The featured bands are always entertaining. The band we got to see there played rock so the place was shaking. For the small palce that is, I think it is best for acoustic guitars to play there instead of electric guitars. Besides, I bet the acoustic guitars will add a more homey touch to the place and make you stay there till the wee hours of the morning.

When in Banawe... there's this new place called Sisig N' Steak Station. Obviously that's their specialty. Prices are very affordable and servings size matches the price pretty well.

Its located in side street of Retiro behind One Spa, Palanan corner Malaya Streets.

Oscar's Place:

Located at the ground floor of the DHL building in Pasong Tamo Extension (Easy to spot. Just look for the building with the big DHL logo on top). This is a small cafe with an al fresco area. From the outside the place loks like nit can only sit 10, but going inside and passing through the hallway that leads to anotehr room, it can actually sit 20. The theme at least in that interior space is that of a modern art museum where there are modern paintings (which are for sale ;) ) lighted by bright halogens. The chairs and tables are similar to those that you see in your favorite Haagen Dazs ice cream parlor: made of very light aluminum.

The menu is a mix of the Filipino and some Italian inspired dishes. Price is moderate and is targetting the yuppie crowd (Prices range from 100-200 bucks). Food is ok, served in a semi-generous portion considering this is more of a cafe than a restaurant.

Upon further inspection of the place, it had a lot of various reading material for both the guys and gals. I guess this cafe was meant to be a place where you can just hang out and take your time. This is also a nice place to take your date if you are in the area and would like to have some quiet moments while not eating you out of house and home, or if you feel that there are so many options around to choose froom that it becomes so hard to decide where ;D Kind of like a default place to eat ;)

For the coffee goers, they serve the Lavazza brand of coffee, one of the most famous, if not the most famous, Italian brands. :)

Post by: R-A-Y on January 06, 2005, 11:07:34 AM
Hmmm... Haven't posted here for quite some time now. Anyway let's start again ;D

Kohikan

Brent recommended this place for meeting up to just hang around and chat. And I can understand why. The place is settled along the new Promenade complex in Greenhills, ground floor, with al fresco area overlooking the parking lot beside it. During December, the cool winds add a crisp and soothing exeprience as you enjoy the thing they are good at: Coffee :)

Their coffee is really excellt. Bold in flavor and of the right temperature. They recommend their sumibi coffee and I recommend it myself as well. I found it to go best with the pancakes that they also serve. They also serve a variety of pasta and sandwiches so this is not jsut a cafe.

The place has the modern Japanese minimalist setting, with its light walls and contrasting accents, coupled with a mellow white light. Definitely conducive for those weekend conversations or if you would want to impress a date with their taste for lifestyle. Seats are comfoortable, although the al fresco area has a rough flooring which makes even the most even chairs and tables wobble, but it can't be helped since the whole Promenade complex flooring is really like that.

The waiters and concierges are very courteus, probably following the Japanese culture from which this restaurant came from. They always make sure your table is clean, and even bow in respect everytime they leave you to your privacy. They even refill your water every time you finish it off! Benj calls it the Chinese water torture, as the volume of water they serve can flush out the amount of caffeine that you have taken in from their great teasting coffee. It's pretty cool though ;D

With an ambience and quality of food as good as UCC but at half the cost, this is definitely my choice of default place for coffee and light snacks :D!

Post by: R-A-Y on January 10, 2005, 01:57:54 PM
Just tried out a new restaurant htis weekend

Zhongnanhai

Literally means central and southern seas (at least that's what their menu says), although this restaurant is located at the ground floor of Greenbelt 2 building, replacing the old swanky Restaurant 12. Huge dark wood doors with red borders makes you feel that this restaurant is more for the private kinds of functions, although upon stepping inside and seeing the small round tables and longer rectangular ones, it seems to cater more to the business and group kinds. The high ceiling gives a sense of depth, while it's second floor balcony that overlooks the lower dining area gives a sense of satisfaction. You will enjoy just looking at the small accents of the place that make it quite enjoyable to stay in, although the seats are a bit on the hard side.

It's menu has a good variety of meals at reasonable prices, considering this is a restaurant located at a high class complex. Servings are pretty much good for 2, except the dessert that will be great just for 1. their specialty dishes are properly marked, and believe me when I say that these dishes are very good. Try their chicken with peanut sauce appetizer. Very impressive. And when I say that their mapo tofu is spicy, prepare to order a lot of water or iced tea, which actually has a menu of its own. Pick either hot or cold tea, served in pots or in carafes.

Every meal is followed by a small and red fortune cookie. Not so crunchy but leaves you wanting more of it.

One thing that you will notice about this place is that their male waiters have their hairs dyed. I have yet to figure out the reason for this. Regardless, the service of their staff is very good. Punctual yet personal. Waiters round the place about to make sure that guests are always taken care off.

I would suggest this as a good place to bring your business coleagues or your immediate family for a nice night out in the town. Good also for barkada especially when you pitch in. Will be worth it especially when after dinner, it's off to one of the other Greenbelt or Makati hotspots ;)

Segundo Piso

This is located in the Kerravin Complex in Pasong Tamo Extension (the small walk/driveway beside Starbucks that leads to Terry Selection. It's at its second floor :D thus the name ;) )

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/segundopiso1.jpg)
Food is more on the Spanish style. It used to be all sandwiches, but they have expanded their menu to make a full course meal. Still, it's the sandwiches that are the best, which come from its deli shop downstairs. These come with a serving of potato chips that are to die forAlso, try their ham and cheese platter. It's a great light lunch for 2 or more people.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/segundopiso2.jpg)
The whole place has rows and rows and rows (!!!) of deifferent Spanish red and white wines. Makes it feel like an old style cellar, except that it is modern minimalist in design. Great for business lunches. The place is only open until 7 and closed on Sundays so there is really not much time for you to choose as to when to go to it. Also, on Saturdays, the owner conjures up something new for his customers to try.

Really overwhelming place, just like the price of its food. Expect to pay at least 300 bucks per person ( :o ) But with a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, and a great coffee that has a dark chocolatey aftertaste, you would really want to go here once in a while ;)

Located at Gilmore Ave (From Ortigas Ave gooing to Greenhills, past Santolan intersection, near a Carrot Cake sign) This is an outdoor (read: Just beside the street ;D) grill that has one of the best tasting chicken inasals here in Metro Manila, and at an affordable price too :D

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/jt3.jpg)
This had 2 chicken thighs with legs, 2 garlic rice, 2 pork barbecues, and 2 dalandan sodas. Overall price: 300 bucks :D

One of the other great things about this place is that it plays nice chillout and chillhouse tunes :D

I have heard from some that this place really has a great al fresco experience at night time ;)

Cowrie Cove:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/CowrieCove1.jpg)
This is the resident flagship bar in the Shangri-La Mactan resort, and holds a very special place in my heart, plainly because of how great this place is!

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/CowrieCove2.jpg)
Picture this: A bar similar to Temple Bar or V-Bar, add a balcony looking over to the beach, add a nice walkway to a small hut that is pretty much as close to the sea as you can get with a table for 2 (or 4 for your fun double dates ;) ), a great selection of beach chillhouse tunes, a happy hour from 5-7pm, and you have the best place for your friends or couple to just hang out the whole night :D !

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/CowrieCove3.jpg)
(The walkway leading to that nice small hut for your 'mini' private functions ;) )

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v468/waywayweyes/Restos/CowrieCove4.jpg)
If you will be going to Mactan (doesn't matter if you don't stay in Shangri-La. The restos are open for walk-in guests), you need to visit this bar just to appreciate the great landscaping and the littlest of details that make it very different from your typical beach bar :D !

and the other is named gayuma which is just behind katips. it's actually along esteban abada street, just behind mcdo. they have sumptuous cakes there. better than sex is one of my personal picks. and oh, have i mentioned they have quite a scandalous menu too?  ::)

Razon's from my hometown of Guagua, Pampanga.   :)

For many many years (decades even), business-minded customers who took the time and effort to seek this secluded resto/home in Guagua's LM compound, have tried in vain to convince the old couple that owns it to start a franchise for their famed (at least locally) halo-halo.  

But the old couple have always declined choosing instead to live a simple existence.  I do not know what finally convinced them to expand but I'm glad they did cause now I don't have to go to Guagua to have a taste of what IMHO is the best halo-halo anywhere.    ;)

i've never been to cebu kaya i've never tasted their lechon... i saw the cebu lechon resto inside "Fort"... since i pass by the area quite often... i decided to try it having remembered some people saying masarap daw ang cebu lechon...

anyways...tried cebu lechon kanina for dinner....
place was okay... kaso ang konti ng tao considering friday atsaka payday...

the food was average... nothing special...

price was a bit expensive...considering there was nothing particularly special about their food

service was average...again nothing special


i'm not sure if they captured the taste of lechon from cebu...

Kaya for Cebuano food, AA padin! Pati price, Cebu price din.

Good thing pala we stepped out of that place at the Fort when we were supposed to eat there before. I was looking kasi sa mga other tables, parang labo itsura ng food. So I told my folks na sa iba nalang kami. We went to AA tuwang tuwa sila sa food, and nagulat pa sa price ang mura kasi.

Don't like Cebu Lechon in FB too.  It's nothing like the real thing. Having said that, we always have our lechons airfreighted in from the Visayas. Once you've tried lechon there, di ka na masasarapan sa mga lechon dito.  :)

Thats right.  I heard they roast it stuffed with spices (which they take out after) and they also use syringes to inject it with stuff while roasting. It's juicy and you really don't need Mang Tomas to enjoy it.

Pag napunta ka sa cargo releasing area ng PAL o Cebu Pacific, ang daming nagpapadala, especially on holidays.

anyway, i recently had the chance to dine at "heaven and eggs" in t. morato... it was ok... big servings... price was reasonable considering they'll drown you with the wide variety of syrups for their pancakes.  :)

the best part is their menu... i had a difficult time choosing since it had so many entrees.

the dinner last night (mayo cinco) at the maranao resto in pearl farm, davao samal island was superb.

- sesame crusted seared sashimi tuna with wasabi cream
- pastry covered beef broth with vegetable brunoise
- fusion; angus beef oriental meduim rare with stir fried noodles
- chocolate mousse with mango coullis

hats off to the filipino sous chef.

es perfecto! muchos garcias to my two spaniard friends, juan, the general manager and jose, the resident manager.

we also had great sounds and booze at the parola bar in pearl farm.

also, i remember the buffet dinners at lagen and miniloc resorts in el nido palawan a few months ago were one of the best i had.

the kare-kare in aman pulo, palawan delicious as well.

yummy!

Mmm... nice choices you have there.

I just remembered the Salmon Steak in MyLK, it's also crusted with sesame (there, the sesame just reminded me :) ), coming with mayo-bbq/teriyaki sauce. That's what I've been into for quite some time. It's really really tasty.

For something super light, their Laguna Cheese Salad is a favorite pick. The cheese may be a little too oily but it's creamy, and the greens, tomatoes and raspberry vinaigrette is just superb.

The menu ranges from salads to pastas to fondues to seafoods, lambs and turkeys.  The taste's simply exquisite and you'll just love to savor every serving. They also offer great choices for those on a Southbeach diet.

My Little Kitchen's got a cozy, homey ambiance. One could just relax and lie low with all their 'comfort food' around (sana they have couches, but of course the whole resto's patterned to a kitchen, so.. no couches :) ).

MyLK's at the 2/f row of restos in GB3.

Great for bringing in all your close friends for a hearty dinner and a nice lengthy talk.

:)

i am most of the time, out of town. i remember dining at sentro, bubbagump, and my fav in gb3, casa armas.

there is a casino hotel near east ridge golf, eastbay/ fiesta hotel and casino. most of the f&b mgmt personnel (such as the f&b director and outlet mgrs) are my friends from shang edsa. so the selection of food choices should be ok. - they are however in their soft opening stage.

Nothing beats tinola and inihaw na isda in the Visayas.  Sarap pag fresh ang seafood.  When in Tacloban, try Sinugba or any of the numerous seaside restaurants there. They also have huge yummy alimango's over there.  When in Ormoc try this small bahay kubo restaurant called Yoyo's. Best adobong kangkong anywhere.  In Bacolod, there's Aboy's (love the scallops) and the 'pala-pala' restaurants near the seaside market. Bagsakan ng isda. Sarap.  ;)

So we each ordered thai steak 155 pesos isa with kangkong side dish. hay naku nung pag labas nung steaks...mouth watering kasi ang laki nung cut nila at juicy pa... eto ang maganda... pag hiwa mo ng steak parang goma sa dami ng litid... kahit ang lalaki nung ipin knife eh hirap pa rin kami hiwain yung steak... nahiya naman ako ipabalik kasi nabawasan nanamin so pinag tyagaan namin pero after eating what we could cut... i found out na wala pa pala sa half yung nakain ko, pati sa gf ko ganun din... puro litid at taba... nung nag babayad na ako, tinanong ko sa waitress baka may discount yan kasi puro litid kita naman nya na halos puno pa yung plato namin... she asked the manager kung pwede daw and showed him our plates... just heard him say "wala noh!" then yung pa-cute na waitress na nag abot ng bill sinabihan ko na mag palit na kayo ng supplier ng karne nyo... she just smirked at me and walked away... wala man lang thank you sir...  


remember Thai-in-a-box... not worth your money...

masaya ang doggy ko kasi steak ulam nya mamaya 310 pesos ata yun
if you're looking for steak na value for your money, try HotRacks sa AutoCamp at sa Libis. Trust me, you won't regret it. Champion steak nila. Though don't expect much from the place coz very simple lang yung lugar.

My Angel's Kitchen:

Look for it along Connecticut St., Beside the Kamameshi House. Real cozy place with a country looking set of pastel colors and comfortable wooden chairs with soft cushions. Food is a wide variety of salads and some good grilled meat and fish. The way it is served is really more for the healthy eater, but it is so good!!! Their desserts are not bad at all as well. Try their Choco Lava. Good for 2 and my personal favorite. Friendly staff and for me, it really feels like an extension of home :)

Disccounts for people who pay in cash :) Also, they can customize the servings upon request :)

Good date places and if you would want to treat your family to a good night out :) Love the jazz music too :)

I have to agree with fafa Ray

Just came from dinner. The place is fantastic! Good food, great value. Tried the softshell crab salad and beef pot stew. My friend tried the baked salmon, which she said was very good too. We didn't have room left for dessert. Serving size is very generous here. The complimentary spread for their bread is really good as well. The place has a very homey ambiance.

They were playing opera music at the time.

Best sellers nila yung Porterhouse steak and Hot Racks pork rib. More than pwede ang rating ko sa kanila although hindi ganon kalambot ang meat. Well, relatively mura naman kasi.

Pero puno doon lagi esp pag lunch time.

Sanctuario in Tagaytay (Rotonda near BPI, Max's and 7eleven). Bulalo with pasta. The bulalo is good. the pasta, even without the bulalo is great. I also tried the spaghetti with marinara sauce using tuyo - not bad at all. The breads are great and the pate's (bangus, cheese and salted egg) are good with the bread basket.

Wooo I just remembered some place that Eve and I tried a few weeks ago :D

Firefighters NY in that complex near the Acropolis Village entrance in Libis serves one of the best tasting Buffalo Wings :D ! And they have different levels for it too :D (mild, medium, hot, suicide :D ) They have great burgers too :) Their Flash-Over burger is made of chicken with a spinach patty that is just great as well as healthy!

Prices are around 120 bucks for 6 pieces of Buffalo Wings. There are other bigger servings (Fire Brigade I believe has 24 wings. I can't remember though) and they go well with plain rice :) They have an assortment of dips for it too :)

They have good parking in front of their resto too for at least 6 cars :) but if we go as a group, of course we can double park ;D But if you take the whole complex, I think we can at least fit 12-16 cars ;D

L' Opera for fine Italian fine dining.. there's one in reposo and old greenbelt (now transferring to the fort near mtv)..

if you want L' Opera taste and quality for less, go to La Grotta in herrera st makati.. the former L' Opera chefs put up their own resto.  this is casual dining not formal dining.  but you'll hardly notice the difference in taste..

I just found out last week that i could go to NAIA and check in early and not suffer the long wait for my flight while eating very expensive food on hard plastic seats. I was directed by a girl to the Sampaguita Lounge where one can have a fill (buffet) of light snacks with unlimited trips to the beverage counter for only P400. Not bad. The food was mainly breads and sandwiches but the arroz caldo was thick and chuncky with chicken. Very filling. The iced tea and calamansi juice was more than enough. Its a bit funny though, that the staff there also told me that i may bring some of the products in the buffet as 'baon' on my flight. I was tempted to get some instant noodles and sandwiches from Figaro but i had my fill already at that time.

Haven't posted in here for a while:

Cafe Bola:

Don't know how many branches of it are around but what we tried a while ago was the one in Greenbelt. Same owner as Cibo and Pepato, so you will see the same circular patterns found in the other sister restos except in here it is even more exaggerated, with wilder and warmer colors of retro yellow and orange.

The place is basically all about that era: Retro era. Specifically the Filipino retro times, as it is filled with so many clips of the Filipino films of old. You can see how Erap looked like before he was sentenced for house arrest ;D

Since it's a Filipino retro theme, the food is Filipino also. Rice toppings with some of your favorite Pinoy meat such as adobo and other incorporated international dishes to our society such as chicken. What we tried though was the grilled chicken sandwich. It is pretty good, but you will feel a bit shortchanged because of its size and presentation. Their flourless chocolate cake was an exception though. Basically a slice of chocolate cake that is swimming in what seems to be fresh milk. Looks uninspired and unappealing at first, but it is actually a very good dessert, especially if you take a bite off and dip it in the milk.

Good to try if you're feeling a bit different and not so hungry ;D

Went to Cafe Bola recently as well.

Food was generally so-so except for the cassave cake dessert which was pretty good.

Service, however, was very bad.  It took 20 minutes for the dessert to be served and 15 min for our change to arrive (there were only a few diners at the time, btw).

Value = Reasonable price

BB Grille (anything to do with here Double B Guys? ;D) - Biak na Bato St. cor. Sta. Catalina St. in Quezon City. Vey near Siena College.

When we came in, they had T-bone with rice and gulaman for PHP 135. Laki nung serving nung t-bone, ok naman iyong luto.

Beer is only 25.00.

Those who know the area would agree na super tahimik and cozy itong lugar na ito, although don't expect much bec. simple lang iyong place and no aircon to boot.

it's a pseudo vegetrian restaurant since they also serve seafood.

Just tried Kopi Rotti (spelling?) in Tomas Morato. They serve great Singaporean style coffee. That paired with their coffee flavored bread serves for a killer late night snack. Not too expensive also, I think it's around 70 bucks for the combo. Downside is the place is quite small, but they're opening a bigger branch somewhere in the Katipunan area.

More often than not they give out 110% when a food critic is dining at a restaurant. So I wouldn't be surprised if he/she is raving about the place. They currently have 2 outlets, Shangri-La Mall and Greenbelt 3.

Its owned by the Bistro group, same one that owns Fridays and Outback. Which is quite uncharacteristic, because they were known to serve really good food when they first opened. Quality started to degrade as they aged. This is really a bad start for Fish and Co., and I'm never going back there.

Guys, if you ever find yourselves in Baguio, you have to try Rose Bowl along Harrison Road. It's already considered an institution there with its good food and humble beginnings, as well as the rise and fall and the resurrection of the place. I recommend you try their lechon kawali.

BTW, if ever you find yourself in UCC Cafe Terrace, I recommend the Chicken Teriyaki Rice Casserole. It has a slight taste of curry and other spices that is just right :D

Oh, and it has this interesting cream on it too ;D

Tried on Ebisu before, it was ok, but seems that their table grills aren't really used.

Does anyone know of other jap/kor restos with those grills where you can actually cook on your table?  :)

I forgot the name of this resto along pioneer in mandaluyong, quite close to rfm (7-11)

anyway, food was okay but service sucked... nanood ng tv yung resto staff kaya mabagal magrespond pag tinatawag


price was pretty expensive though... mga around 250

ambience wasnt that great either

id definitely recommend it!!! 4 thumbs up! (hands and feet... teeheehee!)

I luv deyr blackened beef salad and especially thier steaks and i think its a cinnamon squash soup! YUM! YUM!

Philly cheese pasta also rocks! nice OL view.

U can find dis place ryt after Yellow cab pizza dun sa tabi tabing resto!

pero u cant hav all these pleasures without paying a hefty price! prepare 1k per person!

May I second that on Fish and Co. Dapat ilagay sa BAN LIST yan. We got the seafood platter, di pa fresh yun shrimp and squid. Ang sama talaga. Mahal pa ng price. WTH, dapat magsara na sila if that's all they have to offer.

yeah. yung ny f&c lang ata masarap hhehe.  mayron din ito sa singapore, halos same prices. hindi ata sila nag-aadjust by country!  yung ny f&c dun S$14 ata...

My dad and I had lunch in this place that was supposed to be known for its great hamburgers even before McDonald's and Jollibee and all the other burger joints came in. Its name was Dayrit's. Used to be located in the Buendia area, now moved to the Magallanes commercial complex with the other restos.

The place still feels like those old 1980's resto, with those wooden tables with white tops and redwood colored chairs, but my dad said they added a lot more things to the menu such as roast beef and a lot more rice meals

Still, we were there for the burgers, so I went for the Big D: Triple decker burger with 2 patties and gravy. I wasn't disappointed with it at all even if it did cost 120 bucks. It was actually great value for money :D Best with either coke or dalandan juice.

Great tambayan place too since there is a fair amount of parking and nice to relax even outside because it's veyr windy :)

Finally tried Fish and Co. It seems they have changed the quality of service ever since Brent and Roland went there because we loved it :) I ordered the parmesan (New York style) fish and chips and it was delicious :D Maybe I should have gotten the one without parmesan because it tasted extremely salty when the food got a cold, but it's ok :) Next time I'll just order the plain fish and chips for comparison :)

But I don't see myself going there often, though. It's not like a Le Ching or Tasty dumplings that you just can't get enough of ;D

Just tried Kopi Rotti (spelling?) in Tomas Morato. They serve great Singaporean style coffee. That paired with their coffee flavored bread serves for a killer late night snack. Not too expensive also, I think it's around 70 bucks for the combo. Downside is the place is quite small, but they're opening a bigger branch somewhere in the Katipunan area.

Yep I saw this one :) It's just before the flyover going to Ateneo :) Have yet to try it but it really looks inviting to come and have a nice cuppa :D

HEAT, the new buffet place in Edsa Shang. The selection of food was really good, and the place was quite packed even on a Tuesday night. You have choices of chinese, american, italian, japanese, and  filipino dishes, as well as complements of crab, crayfish, and oysters. And of course, the dessert bar!!! They have ice cream, different crepes, as well as your usual cakes and other pastries.

IMHO the price increase due to the renovation is well worth it. I wouldn't eat here when you're on a tight schedule though, because you will want to take your time in trying out each of the dishes hehe  ;D

We were in viewsite in Tagaytay a while ago.

The place was nice, the view was fantastic, but the service was one of the worst I have ever experienced. For such a place that can hold 300, it should be easy to cater to over 40 people. We even separated the bills by batches so that it's easier for them to know who to serve which food. What happened was that some were served sooner even if others have ordered earlier, and only after threatening to cancel the remaning orders did the other dishes come out. Had to wait over an hour for a tocino and rice. And it's not even warm anymore. It's like they had cooks but the waiters did not even bother serving it.

This is the second time from the experience of some from our groups that they don't give a decent service. They were joking that on srike 3, they will petition to either have the management changed or just close the place down completely ;D

It's really a pity. Big parking space and great view only to be spoiled by lousy service.

I was there the 1st time and that experience was worse than today's experience! >:(

This is what happened then, I ordered a Clubhouse sandwich, 30 minutes later the waiter comes back to tell me they ran out of Clubhouse sandwiches. So I change my order to Lechon Kawali, another 30 minutes later the waiter comes back again "Sir ubos na yun Lechon Kawali", so I said "ano bang pagkain ang meron?" He said "Sisig sir". So almost all of us ate Sisig and they also took their sweet time in serving it! Let's burn that place down next time! >:(

Gourdo's Fort - Overall Rating 9/10

Food was good, very fast for pizza which I ordered. I had the prawn pizza which was one of the best pizzas I've tasted. My girlfriend had pasta which was very good as well. Service was good, the staff was very courteous. As for pricing, it's not on the low side but I'd say that it was money well spent because the food was really good.

Sushi Katsu (Scout Rallos cor. T. Morato) - Overall Rating 8/10

Authentic Japanese food, the owner is Japanese who doubles as the chef married to a Filipina. Service was ok. Food came out very fast considering that we were very hungry already  when we went there. Food was good overall but not all the dishes. Their Gyoza wasn't anything near good. Shrimp tempura was so-so, couldn't expect top grade prawn since it was cheap. Their Sushi Katsu Maki (California Maki) was good and was around 50% bigger than your average California Maki. Kani Salad was good, it was served in a different way. Price was very affordable for something very authentic.

Have you guys tried the adobo rice of Gerry's Grill?  It's served wrapped in banana leaves shaped like a "puso ng sagin".  It's a winnah and so is their baked scallops.

I love the prawn pizza at Gourdo's too.  My current fave.

If like me you think Saisaki has lost it's appeal, try Kaiseki at the Fort. They have a couple of Japanese cooks in their kitchen. I love their Crazy Maki.

I am not sure if it was already posted here, but if it was, then I would just like to re-affirm that CANTONESE KITCHEN is one of the best Chinese restos I have ever been. There was this mixed vegetables fried with a special batter that was just so good it can put any hashbrown I have ever tasted to shame.

The chef is a multi-awarded dimsum dude from Hong Kong, so you can be assured their dimsums are to die for :) !

Located at Jupiter Street, near the Tricom building :) Best to have Sunday dinners there since not much people flock through that street on that day :)

Thumbs up!

Don't try to eat it in the movie theater though. Could get messy.

Crustasia Powerplant: food is below average, service is so bad.

Antonios Tagaytay: perfect place for a dinner date. from starters to dessert, food is to crave for, expensive but you get what you paid for.

I think they have branches only in Illinois.  When in Chicago, you got to try it.  You flip this little round card to green and hordes of gaucho (South American cowboy) waiters come at you with skewers of assorted meats slow-roasted in open fire, gaucho-style. Flip the card to red if you've had enough or you just wanna rest.   

I swear after eating I had visions of starving people and it made me feel guilty.

Another must-try resto is Kai in greenbelt 2. Tried their kobe beef, pan-grilled with salt and pepper, it was super good. I really love the food they serve there. Japanese resto, tried their salmon maki and ebi tempura also, and they got other nice choices in their menu. Plus, I also love the ambiance and the service. Nice for setting up a good dinner. One of my favorite restos now.  :)

Hmm maybe because it looks dark and everyone's in black? :) And maybe people also are always at the other side like in Temple that it looks like it's not frequented by people. But it's open naman everytime i think, this weekend nga there was a pre-wedding dinner there at the whole resto but still they let us come in and we were seated at the mezzanine.

Do not eat at Teriyaki Boy Banawe, worst f'n service I have ever encountered. Took almost an hour to prepare our Teriyaki Boy Chicken, tapos naubusan pa daw ng fried rice, and they even forgot to list our order of Gyoza. There's no excuse for service like that, especially if the restaurant is a franchised one where the operations should already be streamlined.

even though franchised na ata yun tboy, the old owner AFAIK still owns a minority share in it. (correct me if im wrong), anyway, walang patawad yun pancake house group from buying up several restos. they should check the quality of the service and food and not just keep an eye for expansion. expanding too fast can be devastating.

Uy buhay pa pala ang thread na to :D

And I have a few reviews that I saved in my phone:

Mati:
It's a modern Greek restaurant in Powerplant Mall in Rockwell, beside Seattle's Best Coffee. Great food, especially the lambs, but on the expensive side. Nice quiet dinner place, then turns to a swanky bar by night with mood setting beach house and chill house music. Great place on Friday nights

Sumosan:
Japanese fusion resto in the 6th flr of the Shang Mall. Modern looking Japanese resto, although I think the volume of people that have flocked the place has made it quite worn out. Food is ok but the accuracy of delivery is not too great. Can't remember the price range but it is quite reasonable, provided you can overlook some of the times they flaw in the service (Like asking for a glass of water and it never comes).

Jao, pareho lang tayo sa service review ng Sumosan ;D

CYMA
Another modern Greek restaurant located in the Shangri-La resto lane in the topmost floor near Starbucks. Tavern-looking place, mixed with rightly illuminated lights to make the place bright, yet cozy, giving you a better condition to enjoy their food. Try their CYMA lamb chops, their specialty. The place is surrounded by inspired waiters and managers working as a team to give you a pleasant experience. Pouncing with mood setting groovy chillhouse music, and you have a winning formula for a restaurant you will continue to patronize

Duck Wok
When I first saw this, I really thought that all they sold was duck. It actually is a modern Chinese restaurant similar to the likes of North Park and Luk Yuen, only it seems like a place for the barkada to hang out, with its aluminum tables, plastic chairs, and beer bucket promos (with fried tofu :D !). Price range is about the same too, averaging around 150 bucks for their rice toppings. I came in here during lunch time of a Sunday and there was no one around except a family of 6. I hope it wasn't a sign that this was a bad choice to pick :-\

Well, it was ok, although nothing special, except that it has roasted duck topping rice readily available (FTW :D !!! ) Not bad to go there once in a while.

Anyway, I was also able to dine at Cyma - great food and service. I particularly like the whole fish dish (forgot the name, pero lapu-lapu yata yun), it's really great..

If you can get hold of a Shangri-La Makati Senses Card, try eating lunch at Inagi Ku (not sure din if this is the name hehe but I'm referring to the Japanese resto inside Makati Shangri-La hotel). They have Japanese buffet every Sunday lunch time. Tenderloin Steak, Gindara and Tempura cooked in front of you, plus a wide variety of sushi, including unagi. Tastes great! :)

Hey Guys!

San meron authentic Chinese Beijing Peking Duck sa Manila? And authentic Chinese "herbal" hotpot  ;D

Meron kase kami pinupuntahan na herbal hotpot, and they say it makes the skin better, softer and whiter and its really healthy  ;D Eto lang type ko na chinese hotpot.

I enjoyed the peking duck so much here in china, I was wondering if there would be something equivalent in our country. I'm gonna miss this dish when I come back.

At first, I really thought it would be eaten like a max's chicken with rice  ;D Yun pala, there's an art to slicing it, and serving. plus you eat it with condiments, a really special sauce and some kind of bread, like the indian Nan(only thinner)

Also, any authentic Indian retau's sa atin? Yun hindi "westernized" yun cooking  ;D sarap magkamay with the Nan and spicey spinach curry.

Nga pala, san rin meron authentic chinese tea leaves for tea?  :) medyo nagin bias na ako and I do not favor yun tea in tea bags like lipton ;D

Peking Garden in Glorietta offers good peking duck, also Summer Palace in EDSA Shangri La Hotel. As for the tea leaves, I guess Binondo?

tea leaves here in southern china has lots of variety. cheap ones can be just a lil' bit more expensive than bottled water, but the high end one can be once-per-ounce, more expensive than gold.

sa pinas so far wala akong nakitang shop talga na nagbebenta lang ng real good tea. feel ko maliit masiyado market sa phils for this. lalo na with the hot climate and all. masarap to pag winter...

lipton tea bags or any tea bags for that matter just don't cut it. ayaw ko ng brownish color na tea. i love the greenish-yellow ones, nakaka-addict!

If you happen to find yourself in Tacloban, try Yolanda's, just a few kilometers from the airport by the same coast line as the airport.  Smells and looks a bit like a wet market but if you want the freshest & tastiest seafood, nothing in Manila comes close. So convenient while waiting for your flight. :)

eto yun super sarap na beijing peking duck(albiet only a plastic model  ;D)

nagtry ako ng peking duck dito sa chengdu china. Iba talaga yun sa beijing. yun beijing is really lean, no fat. After yun skin, meat na sya. unlike yun peking duck dito sa ibang parts ng china, may taba at iba yun quality.

Just ate at itallianis(megamall) last week.  This is one of my fave restaurants.  Service was great as I expected, my Herb Roasted chicken was really juicy and very tasty, not too much herbs that I usually taste's on other resto's.  My wife's pasta was great as well. And to top it all since it was my birthday and I even mentioned that it was my daughters Bday the other week, they gave us their complementary ice cream served with chocolate syrups with their greeting around the plate.  With the usual singing and dancing haha! Both megamall and makati branches have the same great food and service.

And regarding Sumo sam, yes, they really have                        to do something, Really really bad service. And seeing the food attendants eating on the station as well really disturbs me.

a Veneto Pizzeria
   -- big servings of pizza and pasta at a really reasonable price. ie. 195php for oil and garlic hungarian sausage pasta for 2-3 people and a big slice of pizza start at 50php. And they're really good. Always a wise decision to go here when lunch or dinner can't be decided hehe as we always do on Sundays or just for a break in reviewing. Stores in Glorietta near Zen, saw 1 also in Libis.

Tony Roma's
   --good steaks and ribs and good thing they're offering combos for less than 1000php for variety. Ambiance is good for casual dating or a nice sit down dinner with friends. Store in Glorietta near Oakwood.

btw anyone tried Ohana fast food resto in megamall?? parang fast food that originated from hawaii. heres the site www.hawaiianislandbbq.com masarap ba? i havnt tried it yet... from the pictures parang hindi masarap. :( very limited selection too but hey! its new!

around 140-150 pesos ata per plate.

I tried the Ohana in the States. Fremont to be exact. It's pretty near our office so lunch is usually there. It's actually pretty decent. Medyo "pinoy" taste BBQ.

But, most people order the Chicken Katsu. It's like the Japanese Tonkatsu but it's Chicken. They do something to the Chicken that makes it so soft.

I don't know if thats the same Ohana as the one in Mega though. Baka name lang ginamit nila

We had a not so good experience there at Tatami before. They recommended their specialty of the house which I ordered and did not arrive even after everyone else finished all their food.

Same owner with Haiku in Greenbelt since the paper napkins in use had Haiku printed all over. And I think same group as Jipan as well.

In the newly renovated  Philippine Plaza...

2. Treasure Island - this is the buffet in the swimming pool area. Barbeque style. For me, not worth it. You have to wait for your freakin lamb chops for like 5 minutes standing. And its expensive also...

Tried Gaudi's in serendra. It's quite an old resto na in greenbelt, the small one beside chimara, di ko pinapansin kasi akala ko persian food sya, spanish cuisine pala. I love the steak, it's not really pricey, depende sa oorderin though, but avoid the salad(di masarap vinegarette dressing nila).



If you eat steak + wine/sangria + salad = around 800/pax

Speaking about pecking duck, if you guys have the chance to go to shanghai, go try the crystal jade and order their pecking duck... and xiao long bao... The best i have tried..
I haven't heard a single person saying that it doesn't taste good. The best chinese cuisine i ever tasted with a little twist of fusion... and the price, you'll be suprised, is way cheaper than P1,800 almost 1/3 the price...

just imagine this, when the server cuts of the skin off  to be wrapped with he chinese pita or what ever you may call it,  there is no fats on the skin... it's that good and it tastes heavenly...

located in xin tian di and you must have reservation first before going... or else you wont have a table even if you wait... that popular as well....

Wasabi (Makati Ave)

Actually it's been years since I've been here, back when it was still one of the party places before. Remember when there was a time it was closed? But just tried last Saturday to arrange a birthday cocktail and dinner party.

Their food is of course Japanese dishes, and prices are actually not that much --makis would be in big servings  and would roughly be about in the 150-300 range, same goes for their sushi, sashimi and salads,. Their best bets are the vegetable sticks (with a dip of Japanese herbs which actually looks like and tastes like a peanut dip), and crab meat hors d'ouvres.

Likewise, on venues for parties, this would be a great place too. Though it's not that much recognized today as one of the party spots like embassy or jaipur, it has a much better ambiance for a restaurant, and they offer packages that are very affordable too. What we tried was a party for 60 people, roughly 600/head would include 5 batches of cocktails, unlimited drinks (mango margarita, vodkha/gin, beer, iced tea, etc), and a DJ they'll provide for your party (just make a list though of the songs to make sure you got your own requests). Somehow it's actually good that it's not that much frequented at night so your party is actually more like private party for your friends and guests.

From what I remember, the pricing of it's sister resto Red Crab is cheaper and yet they serve pretty much the same crab dishes.

Crab maritess is also available in Red Crab.

Oh and yes, Omakase, is pretty good and reasonably priced too. You can actually get really full on 300 bucks a head in Omakase.

my friend told me about this place. medyo tago nga kasi sa baba pero panalo tong place! low key pero marami kumakain. ive also tried the branch in libis, ok din pero i haven't tried the one in tomas morato. Fav ko yun American Dream (p150 for 8 pcs)!! ok din daw crazy maki. katsudon is cheaper than teriyaki boy pa... 120 lang ata i think.

Yup its a cool place, its my girl's staple if we can't decide where to eat.

Tried 7 corners last saturday, its pretty cool a lot of choices. Kinda like Paseo Uno but cheaper and food not as great but good none the less. They also had the ice cream teppanyaki, or like coldstone (or coldrock whichever), not that great but hey you don't go there just for ice cream :)

Yeah. Gaudi's used to be in Jupiter then moved to Greenbelt. Better placed there eh.

Their steaks are one of the best ever! No need for any sauce at all :D

the steak in melo's is all time favorite.. i think they moved to jupiter na din.

Yes, I have noticed that Omakase in ATC. I have always wondered if they are any good, but since you guys says so. I will definitely try it one day.

Unfortunately, I am not the kind of guy who goes in a restaurant, order and eat. I do not know why, it is just that I cannot see myself go in one alone even if I am craving for it. Once when I was craving for the Triple-V Crossover, I actually took my bestfriend's 5 year old daughter with me para lang may kasama ako.

Quite expensive, though. You may want to look at others that give more value for money like Behrouz or Mr Kebab.

When can we have another Mr Kebab EB? :D

Just tried mr. Reckefeller in Greenbelt 3. They have good steak :D I'm not a big fan of the oysters, though. Servinge are ok for the price you pay for them. They boast that most of the meals on the menu are good for two. As long as you don't eat like a carnivorous inclined human being, yes it can fit two people ;D

Brought to us by the same people who came up with Oyster Boy :)

It replaced MYLK. I wonder why it did? MYLK had some really good food that had a good following...

EDIT: Hmmm... after thinking about it for a while, I just realized that the chairs and tables being used by Mr. Rockefeller looks awfully familiar to the ones used by MYLK.

   Just came back from (how can you miss it) Il Pirata in Eastwood. It's one of the pricier restos in eastwood, and for that price you definitely get the caribean high seas ambiance. Too bad it doesn't extend to the menu or food presentation.

   It's probably a result of their dry run, but the menu (strictly italian) doesnt make with the illusion your in a swashbuckling pirate's den. Neither does the food prep, which seems sparse and thoughtless; even little veggie pirate hats on your plate would go a long way, as nothing on your table matches the thematic surroundings.

   The food though is good, although not to the point where you'd definitely come back the following weekend. Add a little more cash and you'd enjoy better italian elsewhere. Maybe better as a beer and batter place, not unlike that Bubba Gump's in gb3.

Just tried Clawdaddy last night. It's located in Shangri-La mall. Good food with good service, and the servings are also surprisingly huge.

Tried their chicken barbee. It seems to go well with the diirty rice sides, but maybe you can try it one time with cajun corn.

Oh, their buffalo wings are also good, but a little too spicy for my taste. I ended up drinking more beer than the usual just to get the spice off :P

Texas Roadhouse Grill is not good.

The dining area was dirty.

My jaws hurt after trying to chew their 'tenderloin' steak that came with the surf and turf. I also cook better steak than that.

The rib eye was pretty good. My brother had that.

Serving size was pretty good. Staff service was excellent, they're super friendly. Hope the food tasted better.

I agree with you Brent, we were disappointed coz we had high expectations after we tasted their steak in California.

The steak they had here was bland, hard to chew and full of "litid". :(

Finally tried Green tomato in Shangri-La. Food is quite good :) Very tasty Italian fusion cuisine :) I got the Joe Pesci, which was fish with mustard and cream, with a side of olive-oil pasta. Good and light on the stomch. Doesn't make you feel bloated :) My sister got the JL's special whhich was like a chicken hotdog with some pasta. Not so bad either, but I preferred the fish :)

They boast a good seletion of pasta, so I am pressuming that is their specialty. The next time we dine there, I'll take note of those. But at that time, I felt like having fish ;D

tried Full Star in mall of asia.

their chef was imported from singapore so i was not surprised when the hainanese white chicken tasted the same as the one in singapore. definately not bad at all. Also ordered salt and pepper spareribs and sweet and sour fish fillet. medyo maraming arina yun sweet and sour fish fillet but the spareribs was quite good although i bit maalat for my taste. total bill including drinks was 700+ after taxes. the biggest rant would probably the price of the "half" hainanese white chicken which was 395 which is quite weird since i could order two "quarter" hainanese white chicken meals with rice for 300 total (150 each). imo 395 is too high for a half a chicken.

THE BAD: The atmosphere was too orangy for my taste, plates were the cheap no brand ones.

THE GOOD: good hainanese white chicken, spareribs was also good. reasonably priced.

overall impression: quite good. better than i expected.
will i come back? maybe!

Brazil in Serendra.  OK lang, the food's good but...the churascarria concept they've patterned it after is half-baked. For starters the meats aren't cooked gaucho style (skewered and slowly cooked in a woodfire), they hand out yoyos (coasters in some) but not to everyone - there were 7 of us but only 2 yoyos, the waiters basically disregard the yoyos (so why bother diba?).

But the biggest letdown are the absence of waiters swarming over you with their skewered meats when your yoyo's green and the lack of meat variety. Instead they've skewered everything including pineapples, corn, and bananas  :-[.

French Corner - Westgate, Filinvest Alabang

For a light lunch today I decided to visit Chef Michael Figdor at his new gig at French Corner. Unfortunately I was told that Sunday was his day off. ☹

For those who do not know French Corner is located in Westgate, Alabang facing Total and Petron gas stations. It is owned by the much-acclaimed Chef Billy King of Le Souffle and Le Chef fame.

I?ve been there before so we tried something new and the dishes were: thinly sliced raw tuna in truffle oil, panacotta in strawberry sauce, fresh bread and fresh four seasons.

I would not normally order raw tuna in a French restaurant but seeming my friend Denny has high praises for truffle oil (hmmm? truffle oil) I decided to try it out. Surprisingly it works well. As expected the truffle oil was very very light (truffle oil is hella expensive) and you tasted more of the raw tuna that I preferred. It was sprinkled with dark and orange fish eggs and also had thinly sliced fresh cucumber and some alfalfa sprouts. Maybe because I associate raw tuna with Japanese food I was thinking it could use a citrus like calamansi or lemon to give it some acid.

Seeming I?ve observed the processof making and eaten various types of panacotta I decided on getting the panacotta in strawberry sauce. As panacott goes I find it had a bit too much gelatin. I say this because the panacotta I?ve eaten and observed tend to be much much smoother and creamier. Also I tasted a bit of ?refrigeration? in it. This isn?t surprising as panacotta?s prepared ahead of time and often stored in the chiller. I also noticed a taste of mint. I simply do not like mint.

The fresh bread was very good though it was served conservatively. The servers though were gamely offering more when we finished a very small basket.

French Corner has a rather artistic and more European twist for four seasons drinks. First the four fruits that form the drink were placed into the glass separately that you could actually see them. Another would be the amount of sweetener used was rather conservative. It may disappoint those who like sweet things and more commercial interpretation of the beverage.

Service as always were top notch. The servers were extremely courteous and service was fast. They knew how to set the table per meal and place the fork and knife properly on the dish plate. What impressed me the most was the fact that the server asked whether I wanted my initial order to come first (the panacotta) or the latter dish I ordered minutes later (raw tuna). I decided to get it in proper order. At other places they wouldn't bother to ask.

I would go back there if I wanted something different and yet near. I?d go there with a gorgeous date if she didn?t want to go too far. I?d go there because the food is good. I?d go back again because it has free parking. ☺

=========

For lunch I went to Sonya's Garden. The last time I was there was about a decade ago and things have really changed since then. The place has expanded and for good reason the tables were 90% filled and this was already a few minutes before 1:00 PM.

We ate in a converted greenhouse where half of the it was a dining hall while the rest was made into a flower garden. The smell of earth was quite noticeable and the sound of continuous flowing water and simulated rainfall gave you a sense of cooler environment even if you sweated profusely from the heat.

When we arrived we were seated promptly and were given food very fast. So fast that I was caught off guard by the speed because I expected the waiter to do his "show and dance". The servers just kept on pilling the food on the table and described what were being placed on it. We would proceed to eat and in about 10-15 minutes they'd start pulling out the salad and give us some bread with different pattes. This would continue with the pasta and the dessert.

I appreciate the speed and efficiency the staff but there is such a thing as pause to appreciate the anticipated meal, absorbing the ambiance and for casual chatter among your companions. Eating at Sonya's felt like I must be done with the appetizer, main course and dessert within the span of 30 minutes to make way for the next set of customers. I say this because the servers kept on pulling out our half done plates and hurriedly asked us if I was done. The same also goes with the food replenishment where in they didnt even bother to ask if we'd want pasta or dessert already. They'd just arrive and dump it as is.

I have never been to a restaurant whether they be a kalinderya or fine dinning resto where in the staff would want you to leave ASAP. I do understand why Sonya's people are trained to be that way seeming the place has only one set lunch meal that has yet to change after so many years. So the faster you eat the faster they can clean up and entertain the next set of people I'm not kidding when I say the food has not change since before the expansion of the place.

I love the dalandan juice which I discovered where juiced using a juicer to avoid including the bitter oils of the fruit. I also like the pattes and bread given. The salad was barely acceptable what with frozen durian being served with frost. The main course of pasta is what I have issue with. The red sauce's oil seperated and the salmon given was basically trimmings.

For 500 pesos + VAT it isnt that bad of a meal. In fact it is so cheap that I considered the level of service and food the equivalent of Jolibee at that price range. In other words they are the Jolibee of bed and breakfast. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with Jolibee but they way they do things and the price range echos Jolibee in my head. Not to make pintas of the cars but those who go there are of the lower A, B and upper C.

At first glance the buzz surrounding Sonya's Garden doesn't seem to be justified. The food's not that exceptional, the garden's a bit messy and small and service was very rushed but taken from the perspective of the target clientele and food writer who both probably never experienced a dinning experience like that in their homes or in Metro Manila it does show it's magic. If you're expecting haute cuisine look elsewhere but if you want to feel stuffed from speed eating and tumbling around someone else's garden then Sonya's the place to be. Just be sure not to eat there more than once a month or else you'll quickly bore with the food. I'd probably bring my cheap date there to "shock and awe" her into the bed, and breakfast. ;)

La Solera in Timog. Its a  Spanish Restaurant owned by the Marina group. Pretty good ambiance, friendly staff and good food. We had paella, which was really good. Their salpicao has room for improvement though. They have a promo pa where you get a 500 peso rebate on your next visit.

Chelsea and Abe were booked solid so we went to Larry's in Serendra.

The food is overpriced for the taste and the presentation of the lamb and salad. Parang pagkain galing sa cafeteria ng CSB which costs way way less. Despite the price it appears to not cater to the more advanced customers. Moneyed, yes, but sophisticated, no.

The kitchen sanitation is typical pinoy-standard. Di papasa sa NYC pero ok na rin sa Taguig. :)

Flaming Wings in Katipunan

Not been to Ateneo area quite recently but I really like how they do their buffalo wings. Plus you can choose your own dressing (original, carribean, etc) and dip (bleu cheese, mayo wasabi, etc) and at roughly 100php you can already get a meal with rice and a large drink.  :)

Viuex Chalet along Taktak road in Antipolo has some great tasting food and quaint homey ambience. It is kinda expensive, but it's really tasty. Try their Filet Mignon with a side of rosti (??) (Some kind of glorified hashbrowns with basil leaves)

It's been there for over 20 years na pala. The owner always makes sure she sees the guests are all comfy and satisfied :)

Ah dude malaki narin yan (for me it is since el cheapo date ako haha ;D ) The Japanese resto along Pasay Road seems ok. I think the name is Tsukiji...

If your date likes steak, try Gaudi either in Greenbelt or Serendra :) If you rode rthe angus steak, remembers that mga 300 grams (or roughtly 10.5 ounces) is enough to satisfy the normal eating person :) They'll cook it rare, then ikaw na bahala to cook it to your rpeference on your table over a ceramic plate with rock salt :) No need for gravy. The salt gives this distinct flavor, and the side order sliced potates sauteed in olive oil will give you something to crave for all the time ;D

Sushi Kappo Kobiki-Cho - G-03 JakaII Bldg Legaspi St. Legaspi Village. tel # 752-1280

ultimate in japanese fine dining dito.. an order of the toro is 650++ per piece, uni is 500++ per piece, tamago is 100++ per piece and etc. all stuffs they use are the best of what Japan can offer.. pati toothpick galing din sa Japan.  :wav:

suggest ko is to try it first during lunch time. meron sila lunch set which ranges from Php500++ to 2k and above. set na yun ah.

yung dinner course naman nila is 5k pataas. hehehe..

of course pwede kayo pareserve dun and ask them to cook what you like.. last i heard they are preparing a dinner course worth 12k per pax.. tinanong ko pa uli kung tama yung narinig ko.  :P

(http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c41/neoshaft/road%20trip/SushiRow.jpg)


if you have already tried Tsukiji.. try niyo din yung Tsumura naman. it's on the 2nd floor of the 88 corporate center. tel # 887-4848 to 50. price range niya ay hindi nagkakalayo sa Tsukiji.. masarap din. pero after trying the Sushi Kappo.. parang wala na sinabi yung Tsukiji.  :P

hey guys if your in nyc or la, you should try Nubo jap resto. imo it's the best japanese fusion type resto that i tried. it's a very famous resto, celebrities go there evevrytime. its expensive but worth it. every japanese food lover should try this resto. i love it. just sharing :-)

if i'm not mistaken, i think nubo is owned by actor robert de niro with a japanese chef as business partner..just read it in the papers.

yep, it's nobu. :)

it's the japanese guy who owns the place. robert de niro, a good friend of the jap, has been trying to convince him for so many years to partner in opening other branches. finally, the japanese owner said yes to do business together.

nakakainspire story nung guy, he's been to many places such as alaska and hawaii. one of his old restos burned down and he lost all of what he had years back. after all these years, he's still married to the same girl, etc.

he's really good at what he does! :)

my friends and I ate at the spanish restaurant, Los Ambos, in F. Torres St. Binondo last Wednesday. great spanish food at great prices.  :thumbsup: paella good for 4 cost only P500 there! elsewhere, paella would cost twice or more!

incidentally, the owners also own a chinese restaurant across the street. you can cross order from the other resto and vice-versa!  ;D

Sala at their new location in Makati. I'd rate service at five stars. It was just awesome! Food was pretty good too, although my beef was a little overcooked as I requested for medium. It ended up being medium well but it was still good. My date had the lamb which she said was good, that's what mattered most. hehe. The San Francisco Crab salad was good too. Quality food and great service is value for money in my book. Its a premium restaurant, so its not for the budget concious, but if you want to impress, this is definitely a nice place to go to.

Reservation is an absolute must and better done ahead of time. I almost didn't get a table inside when I tried to reserve the night before. Good thing they found me a table inside in the afternoon.

Anyway, for an Italtian resto, I recommend Galileo along Pasong Tamo (La Fuerza Plaza. It's across the Coke plant). Good food and a big seleciton of wine. How big? Their walls are surrounded by it ;D

i just ate at murrays new orleans steak resto in serendra last night
ambiance is nice. cozy feeling
i ordered the seared tuna with crab i love it
but their ribeye is not that good. matigas siya for me (medium well), i even complained about it and they gave me a new ribeye steak cooked medium rare para mas malambot pero matigas parin...

overall i would still go back and eat there but i wont order steak anymore maybe i'll just try their oysters or other seafood entree

Food? my rib eye was pretty good il give it 4/5 stars but for 1000 its not very sulit highlands pa rin. My dad had the baby back ribs.... now they said this is their specialty... well its crap, the ribs was overcooked... naging crispy un laman and it was hard to eat na. Overall its just ok but there are definately better restos out there.  :(

Tried "Restaurante Pia Y Damaso" in Greenbelt 5 yesterday.

It was one of the most over-priced meals I've ever had.

We paid P600 per head for small servings and left unsatisfied.  The physical surroundings look good, though.  Probably a nice date place once the entire GB5 area is finished if your date doesn''t eat much.

nag moved na ba cafe juanita? if not mistaken, its near the kapitolyo circle in pasig. right next to the office of microwarehouse.

if you like cheaper food, you can try the eatery next door of cafe juanita. operated by the same people, having almost the same ambiance (sans aircon).. if where office people eat. food is decent for its price. parking is a bitch at cafe juanita during meal time.

My search for a good persian resto brought me to Parsa along Libis (It's a small resto that is inside the Floor Center, just a little bit after Honda Libis)

This is the alternative to Behrouz since it offers cheaper prices at better quality. What used to cost me 220 just for a Chelou Kebab in Behrouz now is Chelou Kebab with a drink.

Parking is either in the pay parking before it, or you can park on the Floor Center parking which is along Libis

treated the wife at Lemuria inside Horseshoe Village. Ambiance was good, the place had a homey feel and i think it had less than 12 tables. Nice date place for v-day.  A bit pricey at leadt 2k per head , service was good and was worth the price try the sea bass and the wagyu beef. Downside is the parking and you have to park at the street.

2. bellore restaurant along examiner st., qc
    loved their miso-glazed salmon.
    cheap for 240 considering it comes with soup (choice of mushroom or pumpkin) and salad.... generous serving of the fish as well.

There's a Som's in T. Morato now? Where is it near? I tried the one near Rockwell before. Yun ata yung original nila. It was good and the price is really reasonable.

I got to try Amici yesterday. The T. Morato branch. Its located in Bellagio Square, below Ratsky and Club Industry.

Had the Spinach Fusili with special tomato sauce and Italian sausage. It was good, but serving size is a little short. But then again, for the price, it was pretty reasonable.

Never got to try the one in Don Bosco, but from the stories. Ambiance is a clean canteen/foodcourt atmosphere.

1.  soms at t.morato., qc
     food was cheap but delish! loved their red curry (100 i think) good for two already.
     their tom yam was also good.

2. bellore restaurant along examiner st., qc
    loved their miso-glazed salmon.
    cheap for 240 considering it comes with soup (choice of mushroom or pumpkin) and salad.... generous serving of the fish as well.
    a good date place for budget-conscious people.
 


Men the way you describe it makes me hungry all of a sudden. I like good food but of course budget is also concerned so I think I will check it out.

Hi Chie!

Brazil Brazil! in Rockwell may be small but we always get better service and choices there than in Metrowalk. Second is Serendra.

It's around 650-700 I can't remember though if tax is already included, so with the eat-all-you-can churrasco and other buffet dishes -pasta, vegetables, salads, desserts, etc.

It's one of our favorite pig-out place but really make sure that the meat is grilled well coz 2 of our friends got serious stomach problems (not because of over-eating).

I heard though that Carnivore is better than Brazil Brazil!, but of course that's in Singapore hehe

Was just about to say! Sofitel Spiral is just the best! :) 1,600 with all the choices, yuuuum. I love just staring too at their desserts and coming back for 3 more rounds! Have wider choices also than Circles.

Tonight Banana Leaf for dinner, somehow it's something you'd pass by amongst all the restaurants lined up, pero I really missed their Roti, I love their Roti. Perfect also with their curry dip.  Must-try is the Black Curry Lamb with their Hainanese Rice.

Hi Chie! I'm ok  :) try also Spiral  :)  Let us know too when you'll be coming, we can have a little dinner or some get-together with everyone  :)

Maurizio's
Location: HV Dela Costa, Makati (beside Ateneo Professional Schools)
Cusine: Italian
Price: around 700-800 per person with tax and service charge (15% discount for BDO credit cards promo)

I had their Risotto ai frutti di mare, I liked how the seafood flavors got infused into the mix. My friend had the Spaghetti Tavolara (Shrimps with Crab Fat in Tomato sauce) which was really good (a unique take on the classic Filipino hipon sa aligue in Italian).

^^^ Are you still in Singapore? You should try this resto at the ground floor of the Temasek Tower. It's called Mart Boulevard and serves Thai food. The Tom Yang and Tom Kah is the best I've ever tasted. Lalo na the Tom Kah, I highly recommend it.  :thumbsup: Lunch would be the best time to go there. Just take the MRT and alight at Tanjong Pagar.  :thumbsup:

Finally got to try the much-hyped about Pepper Lunch at Rockwell last night.

We decided to have dinner early at around 630pm to avoid the long queue.

I had the Cut Steak & Burger Combo (P350) while my wifey had the Hitokuchi Cut Steak (P340). It was good naman although madami lang 'taba-taba' yung steak.

For dessert, we tried the Molten Milk Chocolate Cake (P120) and it was quite good but bitin yung serving for the price.

We'll try the Pepper Rice next time.

And guess who was also dining at the same time? The owner herself, 'chuvaness' with her bff, the androgynous BryanBoy.  ;D

I think Brazil is a far cry from the churrascarias that you can find in the US, I mean the meats at Brazil just aren't good enough then they mix 'em with chicken, fish, and even corn pa which spoils the all red meat experience. Also I don't see them cooking the meats "gaucho" style - slow roasted in woodfire while skewered in large chunks.

finally tried Pepper Lunch last friday. i tried the beef pepper rice added 40+ pesos for double the beef but when it came... bitin pa rin un beef ... come on! it was a bit too oily but it tasted pretty good. drinks are 40 bucks daw? tapos 20 bucks to refill to any flavor? bit pricey huh? Hindi rin busog (i just played basketball on the rooftop kaya baka gutom pero still) i would bring my money to sumo sam and order a don buri + sushi sobrang busog pa and tastes a lot better.

maybe ill try it again next time but i wouldnt go gaga over it. Ill give it a 2.5 out of 5. :D

I was excited to try Pepper lunch because lots of people saying it delicious blah blah and a good review in newspapers. After trying it I said to my family "Wala naman meron, except for the electromagnetic plate" which I only call a sizzling plate.  The food is good but the price is just too expensive for it specially their drinks that you have to add P40 for it.

people exagerated pepper lunch....

Razons, i tried their meals and so far lahat ng orders ko e satisfying, plus the halo halo deserves an extra point
also although not considered as a restaurants e yung food court sa SM marikina, madami sila assorted package meals and the value for what youre paying for is worth it

The Tom Yang and Tom Kah is the best I've ever tasted. Lalo na the Tom Kah, I highly recommend it.  :thumbsup: Lunch would be the best time to go there. Just take the MRT and alight at Tanjong Pagar.  :thumbsup:

>> Korean Palace (corrected)
The restaurant is set like an old house in front of Cafe Adriatico in Malate (at the corner of the opposite street) . I love the fact that they have grillers as what we always look for in Korean restaurants as you or the waiters could cook on the table. Loved their Beef Ribs, tried on also Korean Beef, Tenderloin, and Chicken that are all great with their bulgogi sauce. Those bbq orders are about 250-300 each.

>> King Crab
Another small restaurant in P. Guevarra San Juan, beside North Park, but their Crabs, Lapu-lapu and Shrimps and everything they have are really served fresh and tasty. I also love their Mango Sago for Dessert. Nice for casual family dinners or with relatives.

This place was so bad it really couldn't wait until tomorrow. Tried Texas BBQ in A Venue tonight. They has a special 500-peso eat all you can promo on what was supposedly food. Started with Caesar Salad, which was by far the worst I have tasted. Even the one you can buy from the supermarket tasted way better than the crap the served. It was so bad that it was as if they tried to serve you in a tipid buffet style party. You can't get your own food. The main course consisted of Penne Carbonara which wasn't too good; Grilled Pork Belly, which was undercooked. You never undercook your pork; Beer Batter Fish, it was so-so. Then again how bad can you screw this up?; Baby Back Ribs, supposedly their specialty, it was so tough I didn't know how to eat it; Chicken wings, seemed more like fried chicken with hot sauce on top.

Probably the only things they didn't screw up were the fries and the iced tea.

WARNING: DO NOT EVEN GO NEAR THIS PLACE.

Tried the Kebab Factory in Megamall. Place looks good and the serving is ok narin. But if you are out for a real authentic taste of the Persian kind that is good value for money, I recommend Arya in Greenhills or Hossein's in Serendra. If gusto niyo yung medyo Pinoy-style, Uncle Moe's parin ;D

You know I've been meaning to visit that palce dahil marami nga nagsasabi na sulit ;D

BTW, Larry's in Serendra serves good hamburger. It's kinda expensive, though. But the taste of an all meat patty in a slightly toasted buttered bun was just heaven ;D

try SLAB restaurant here in Home Depot ortigas. They have the cheapest Ribs. For a quarter slab of Pork Ribs, it will only cost you 140 pesos and 160 pesos for beef ribs. I do eat a lot but sometimes i can't finish a quarter slab kasi ang laki. oh yeah it comes with side veggies and rice

I think half slab costs only 300. So instead of going to Racks or Outback, mas mura dito sobra  :occasion14:

I've chanced upon Goodah along claro m recto. I've tried their new dish which is the gsig. obviously sisig ito, but i was surprised with the taste as it was really good. Actually, it taste like the one in aysee. For those of you not familiar with aysee's sisig, it is marinated in butter so talagang masarap siya. I don't know if other goodah has the same taste pero the one in recto, is quite good.

Cesca in Il Terraza T. Morato.

Good ambiance, reasonable price. Their USDA Angus steaks were good and reasonably priced. Good detail to the tableware and the cutlery also.



i agree with you brent! the owner of this establishment is my friend. he was telling us that his chef was with mandarin hotel before. so thats why.. :)

Well since the latest topic about this has already been locked (maybe since it was almost a year ago or something) I decided to go make a new one for those who would like to place their feedback on the latest restos that you guys have tried :) I know Clickthecity has got the list, but then it doesn't have the quality feedback that it can get from the actual patrons ;) so just post your feedback here so that it can be a reference for people who would want to try out some places, wheter it be a the popular carinderia next door (There's a place in UP that I have heard of. waiting to try it out soo :D ) all the way into those sleek and swanky places

Me start ;D

MYLK: The outside appearance may be misleading (believe me that's the reason why I've never tried it before), because of its solid white walls coupled with other contrasting colors and sharp edges and corners,  but the food is excellent. A foreigner business partner tried  it out and he said it's one of the best places he has ever been to in the world! I agree :) Very quaint place with the touch of 'just like home' bed and breakfast atmosphere since some of the menus are just listed in some blackboard. The food is basically the collection of international dishes with no thme whatsoever. And it works! You can eat Chinese for appetizers and then Meditteranean for your main meal and they blend well with a glass of Australian wine. A good overall place that appeals to family and friends :D


There are a lot of restaurant I have been eating for and I didn't remember all of them and who is the best among them.

145*F at Il Terrazzo, Morato.

The chef needs to hang himself. Can't even get the steak doneness right. That's the only thing they serve there and they can't even get it right.

Padrino in A Venue

Great value authentic Italian food. Its part of the L'Opera Group but at an easy price.

I keep on forgetting to tell you guys taht if you want a more personal dining experience, you should try Laya in Antipolo :) We're been there twice already and the every changing menu from the young couple who runs the place is really memorable.

Plus the place just looks awesome :)

http://layapersonaldining.multiply.com/

We've tried the "Hello, 2010! Lucky Menu" (I think this was limited to the first weeks of January) and "Best of Laya" menu. Wish I had the budget to always go there though ;D

5-course menu is 650 per head and they have a new 6 course menu of about 750 per head. Comes with unlimited pandan iced tea :)

Oh, and you need to reserve at least 2 days in advance for reservation and pay 50% downpayment. Since it's a specialized menu they just get the ingredients when they need it so that they make sure it's the fresh ones being sold in the market and not freeze stored.

Okay to boss Ray ah! iba talaga pag loverboy! thanks for the helpful link!!! haha  :applause:

Anyway, I'd recommend you guys visit Myron's Place at Greenbelt 5 or Rockwell. Good food, good service also, price is pretty reasonable considering the ambience and the food they serve. It's near the Greenbelt Chapel. They specialize in steaks.

What street in Legaspi Village is this? I'm looking for nice small delis adn cafes in these areas also eh hehe.

Which reminds me, Alexa's Deli that is in Dela Costa near Tordesillas offers a nice quaint place that has a good selection of wines that go well with the deli dishes. Try their Riesling with some of their cream based pastas and other fruits. It's like champagne without the fizz ;D

has anyone tried YakiMix or Yakimeats ba yun? hahaha sulit ba? better than Saisaki daw?

Yakimix. If you're familiar with Tong Yang, parang ganun siya na walang hotpot. Grill lang. I heard mas ok daw yung branch nila sa Mall of Asia, more choices of food.

But the last time we ate at their Tomas Morato branch, may scallops and salmon. :)

Dusit Thani's Benjarong Royal Thai Restaurant. The food was great and its spicy. But you can always request to lessen the spice. Their service is so so. You're lucky if you get the authentic thai waitress, she tells you what dishes are good to mix and match.

Have you guys tried the bfast buffet at Mercado, Resorts World? They had greatly improved compared to how they were when they opened. More variety! Plus it all tastes better now. Its Php360 for Resort World members and around Php420 for non-members. Membership is free as of the moment. And how can I forget, the ladies serving their are cute, like those pretty ones at Italiannis.  ;D

Mr. Jones in Greenbelt 5 has great comfort food that's good for sharing also.

If you  need a drink to wind down, they got good cocktails and a selection of wine and beers (both local and foreign). Just ask them to put a bit more alcohol if ever, though. The mojito and cosmopolitan that we got didn't seem to have enough "oomph!" In them.

And they got all-day breakfast menu also! We tried their steak and eggs with wedged potatoes. Winner!!!

My girlfriend actually wrote a blog about it also if you want to know more:

BTW guys: I know I posted something about Laya here, but for those who want to see more images of it and what kind of dinner you can expect, here's a blog about it:

http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/08/27/laya-personal-dining-experience-just-for-you/

Personalized dinner for two is available on weekdays. The place is so in demand now so weekends are all fully booked for group events/buffets

Directions to get there:

How to drive all the way to Laya in Antipolo?

Two ways:

VIA ORTIGAS EXTENSION
From EDSA, take ORTIGAS heading towards Cainta. Along the way, you'll pass Ever Gotesco and Robinson's Cainta (both on your right). At the very end of ORTIGAS, take the road that veers to the right, heading towardsTaytay. Then take the first immediate U-turn slot in front of Chow King. Drive past Chow King then take the 2nd right. This winding and ascending road will take you up to Antipolo.

When you reach a rotonda, stay on the right fork then you'll pass The Capitolyo, a white building, and Ynares Center (both on your left). Shortly after The Capitolyo and Ynares Center, turn right on Grand Heights Road and/or when you see a sign for Grand Homes and/or LAYA. (The signs are hard to find at night and the Grand Homes signs are more visible.)

Follow the LAYA signs (yellow background with purple letters) all the way to the guard house. (When you see the large Grand Homes sign, don't turn there but go straight to the small guard house.) Drive past the guard house then turn right on Sierra Madre. (At night, there are no lights in this area.) Pinto Art Gallery will be on your right. Go straight until you see the last house on your left before the dead end.


VIA MARCOS HIGHWAY
Take Marcos Highway and pass Robinson's Metro East and Sta. Lucia  Mall (both on your right). When you reach the first major intersection, you'll see a McDonald's on the left corner. Turn right on that intersection to SUMULONG  HIGHWAY.

Along Sumulong, you'll pass Padi's Pointe on your right and Assumption on your left. About 5 minutes after passing Assumption, turn right on the only major intersection. Then take the first left (heading straight will take you to Hinulugang Taktak). Go straight and turn right when you reach a rotonda (a USA88 Gas station will be on your left). Turn left when you see another rotonda. Then, you'll see The Capitolyo and Ynares Center (both on your left).

Shortly after The Capitolyo and Ynares Center, turn right on Grand Heights Road and/or when you see a sign for Grand Homes and/or LAYA. (The signs are hard to find at night and the Grand Homes signs are more visible.)

Follow the LAYA signs (yellow background with purple letters) all the way to the guard house. (When you see the large Grand Homes sign, don't turn there but go straight to the small guard house.) Drive past the guard house then turn right on Sierra Madre. (At night, there are no lights in this area.) Pinto Art Gallery will be on your right. Go straight until you see the last house on your left before the dead end.

Bumping it up!!!

For those who are based or go to Cebu frequently, I guess you are all familiar with their Max's counterpart: Sunburst Fried Chicken. I'm telling you.... I am so addicted to it that I had a bunch taken home from my recent trip to Bohol (Yep, they have a branch in Bohol now as well :D !!!!)

http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/09/09/sunburst-chicken-the-taste-that-sticks/

It's a mix of the taste of Max's and the crispiness of Chickenjoy. I really think they should bring it back here to Manila

http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/09/08/payag-restaurant-%E2%80%93-jo%E2%80%99s-chicken-inato/

They have one in Bohol, and they have one already here in Manila too ;D
They got great chicken inasal (or chicken inato in their dialect). Very very tasty, which will remind you of JT's Manukan, but with a more comfortable ambience :)

Address in Manila:
27 Visayas Avenue Corner Congressional Avenue , Quezon City
02 927 9224

In our recent Binondo trip (Part 1 of possibly many more parts) We have tried to look at just a few:

- Eng Bee Tin: This definitely does not need any explanation. This is the house that hopia built ;D
- Tasty Dumplings: I am really sad they closed their Wilson St. shop :( The closest one nalang yata is a branch in Banawe?
- Ongpin Manosa: One of the oldest restos in Manila. Go here for the Maki Mi and the authentic Ongpin restaurant experience.

http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/a-walk-through-and-a-taste-of-manila/

We are planning a part 2 soon so those who want to join (so that we can try more stuff since there's jsut too much food! ) Let me know :)

Bumping it up again:

For those who want a new romantic getaway in the Tagaytay area, you don't need a view of the lake to have a good experience. We are talking of a place that looks like you are taken into Tuscany, Italy

Marcia Adams :)

(http://lynneenroute.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/img_34343.jpg)
(http://lynneenroute.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/img_3435.jpg)

The whole place has so much stories to tell, from the bricks made from sugar plantations, to the herb garden used to flavor their savory dishes, to the gracious couple who will entertain you with so much of their experiences, and of course, their simple food prepared in a way that extraordinarily takes your mind back to pleasant memories ;D

More on that here:
http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/10/11/marcia-adams-restaurant-a-slice-of-tuscany/

To get there, you will have to go past the Tagaytay border (the arch with pineapples on top). Take the very first right (it's also the road that leads to Ville Sommet). Just 300 meters away on your left, you will see that wooden door with pastel orange walls. That's when you know you've reached Marcia Adams

Went to Banchetto a few hours ago. Its not a restaurant but its like a food fair located along Emerald St., Ortigas. 12 midnight to 11am sila open ng Friday to Saturday. Dami choices ng food but majority are grilled liempo, lechon, etc. Meron din pizza, burgers, mexican food, and desserts. Medyo magulo nga lang kasi sobrang daming tao talaga pero i think its worth your money naman. Prices are so so, 60-200 a meal siguro.

I've heard of great stuff about this and we will try it out soon :)

Oh, it's a payday weekend. And you're feeling a bit flush, try rediscovering Duo in Serendra. I love how they combined steak and seabass. Whatever you say, the combo works :D !

You guys may want to try this out when you're in the Valero area of Makati:

Relish at Ponte

http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/10/27/relish-a-lunch-respite/

It's a fairly neww place but the people around it have been running restos for the longest time. Great food, ambiance, service, and value for money. (I am not a fan of their PHP50.00 charge for splitting servings, though. Might as well have added it in the price since the servings are good for two!!! )

(http://lynneenroute.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/img_3713.jpg?w=490&h=367)

This is half of a serving already. We get filled easily since when we try food, we usually take our time to "relish" the flavor, so every morsel that slides in counts ;D

I've actually been curious about that place. It sure looks very chic (and expensive) just from looking outside. Will try next time.

Oh, I know everyone has probably tried and raved about Buon Giorno, but if you are looking for light meals, i believe their menu too can satisfy :) We tried their pumpkin soup and omeletes with a dalandan shake. Very refreshing as it matches the cool breeze of Tagaytay :)

Do visit them there soon, though, since they said they are closing it down :( They will move the branch somewhere here in Manila.

Be sure to write in their dedication notebook, too :)

We can finally give a review of one of the best baby back ribs... and they're not found in Manila ;D

It's in this garage turned into a restaurant called Johanna's Grille. It's in Bauan, Batangas, on the way to Anilao. Here's a sample:

(http://lynneenroute.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/img_4142.jpg?w=640&h=480) (http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/11/02/johannas-grille-batangas-best-baby-back-ribs/)

You get this half slab with garlic rice and buttered corn for 180 bucks. And the meat falls off the bone with this tender and juicy goodness. reminds me so much of Racks' tenderness but with tony Roma's juiciness (Winner  :cheer: !!!) This $#!+ is so good we always have take-outs brought back to Manila. (As a matter of fact, some people order 10-20 pieces all at once and bring it to celebrations for people to try)

They also got good lechon kawali, liempo, lengua, sisig :D Check out Lynne's blog. She's a big fan and always tries to go here if she can. One (or some) of our Ai members have already tried this and it has become a staple every time they are in the area:

http://lynneenroute.wordpress.com/2010/11/02/johannas-grille-batangas-best-baby-back-ribs/

I'll try to get a map done soon so that you guys can check it out one of these days if ever you head to Anilao or if ever you're in the Batangas City area :)

We recently rediscovered Trio in Fort Bonifacio. I remember that their food is good and after going there, some of the taste does seem familiar. And it was. They are apparently owned by the same people who run Amber Ultralounge (Amber has good food, too!)

Get their Trio of Pizza and partner it with their Trio of Drinks  promo. We got one that had a variety of mushrooms and then drizzled with truffle oil. the scent of the oil was intoxicating ;D

So far a good value for money and something worth rediscovering that gives you a good view of the Fort area.

Really terrible food at XO Kitchen along Jupiter. Don't waste your money there. They should close for serving such bad food. Should have eaten in Chicboy instead, mas mura na busog pa.

2nd's: Comfort Food Revisited

This is located in the old Mag:Net cafe. Great comfort food, although a bit pricey. Nice restaurant/bistro where you can just hang out at the bar for some cocktails (they were VERY generous with the alcohol they placed in Love Lynne's Cosmopolitan. Much to her delight ;D ) or get something from their menu that will be expanding soon :) (They're still on soft opening)

We got their prime rib costing about 1,600 for a 350g steak. a bit on the upside but yuou get what you pay for. You have an option of sides, and we got their great tasting crispy fries and mac n' cheese with truffle oil :)

2nd's is definitely worth a second visit ;D read more here:

Oh, I know everyone has probably tried and raved about Buon Giorno, but if you are looking for light meals, i believe their menu too can satisfy :) We tried their pumpkin soup and omeletes with a dalandan shake. Very refreshing as it matches the cool breeze of Tagaytay :)

Do visit them there soon, though, since they said they are closing it down :( They will move the branch somewhere here in Manila.

Be sure to write in their dedication notebook, too :)


Buon Giorno just opened at Rockwell Business Center at Ortigas. :D hehe langhiya, they didnt close their Tagaytay Branch daw said the waiter. Food was great as usual. :)

They didn't? That's great!!! I was wondering why they even contemplated on closing it when they have the best view of the lake in that commercial complex :)

Post Merge: January 16, 2011, 07:01:12 PM

Oh BTW: Do try out Torch by Peppermill in Connecticut St., Greenhills. Food is great and some of them are fun to eat (We got their steak fondue and it was fun getting the meat cubes cooked by yourself to you liking :)

The place can use a change in the acoustics, though. Every sound in the indoor dining area bounces off the walls. Other than that, the variety of comfort and fusion food will keep you coming back to sample more :)

Tried Shi Lin, 3rd floor, Podium tonight upon recommendation from borly. Pretty good place. Best Xiao Long Bao in Manila so far, not Din Tai Foong level yet, but pretty good for its price (Php210 for 10 pieces). Menu is almost an exact copy of Din Tai Foong.

 Sa mahihilig sa sea foods, kagagaling ko lang from carascal, surigao del sur. Simpleng restauran d sya high class ung pang probinsya talaga, food was great and the price was very cheap. Beside Bun-ot bridge, parang  floating restaurant

pipili ka lang ng fresh sea foods, pwedeng ipaluto ng sinabaw, inihaw(sugba sa bisaya) or deep fried
they also have live lobster pero i forgot to ask the price.

ang house specialty is tinolang Lapu-lapu at 160 per kilo
Pusit also 160 per kilo and ang pinakamaliit nilang pusit is the size of an iPad

ang mga na order namin tinolang lapu-lapu, inihaw na lapu-lapu, kinilaw na lapulapu, fried lapu-lapu, prawns and sizzling squid. worth P480 lang

Chef Laudico's Bistro Filipino: (http://www.lynne-enroute.com/2011/02/10/chef-laudicos-bistro-filipino/)

- So far the good stuff to try there is the angus beef tapa appetizer (forgot the name) and their pork sinigang puree. The other stuff we tried (crispy tilapia in batter, pinakbet soup, adobo shiitake mushrooms) were quite interesting to taste, but maybe not for full fledged meals. Will schedule another visit there to try out the other stuff

The Goose Station in Fort Bonifacio.

Pros: Very good.
Cons: Very Expensive
Verdict: Haute cuisine really has a price, and it's about PHP 1,800.00 per head for a six course dinner. Savor each and every bite. Actually by the third course, you can get really stuffed already! It's for those very special moments, or if you need to make amends :D

Burger Macaron (Special treat from the chef. It's actually a sweet macaron just made to look like a burger. Nutella filling with mint, and a slice of mango)

Ramen Santouka in Glorietta. Ranks well in the top three ramen shops in Metro Manila for me so far. I had the Shoyu Char Siu Ramen, it had generous amounts of tender and tasty Char Siu and serving size was quite good for the regular sized bowl.

We went to Corazon (Filipino - Hispano Cuisine) in Shangri-La Plaza East Wing with my family. The food was very good but the prices are quite expensive for the serving size.

La Cocina de Tita Moning

The good things I've been hearing about the place is really true. Good food and awesome dessert. Was literally stuffed with food.

Have to agree with you on this. Quite expensive there, food wasn't that good for me. Wooden Spoon in Rockwell is a better option, more reasonably priced and a lot better tasting food.

Was at Dumaguete last month, and I found this Japanese restaurant there called Mifune. Eat-all-you-can on weekends for 300php! Really authentic Japanese food and the owners were Japanese. Didn't expect that at all, indeed great food!
