How does one begin describing a very simple thing such as a hamburger, yet convince everyone that what you are sharing may be one of the best damn burgers in Manila? Maybe it is good to start that it is not found in the swanky places or five star hotels. Maybe it is good to […]

Diageo World Class Bartender of the Year 2014 Philippines-9129

Recognizing bartenders as much as world class chefs has always been an advocacy here. More than being nameless John Does at the other side of the bar churning and shaking up a concoction for inebriety, there is more to being a bartender.

Just came from Skinny Mike’s Sports Bar in Fort Bonifacio. Traffic has not really been favorable today (Heard tragic news of a bus that lost brakes and plowed through waiting pedestrians this morning.

Dillingers 1903 New Menu Greenbelt Makati City Philippines-7605

    The first visit to Dillingers 1903 in Makati City were due to a tip that it has some great value-for-money ribeye steaks, more authentic tasting buffalo wings, and a single-malt whisky selection that boasts more than the usual Johnnie Walker (Laprhoaig, anyone?). It did satisfy, and gave some new ideas about the less […]

Las Flores Tapas Bar Fort Bonifacio Philippines_130814-3

We remember the drinks, but we do get curious about who the brains are behind some of our favorite cocktails. They definitely deserve celebrity status in our books.

Brotzeit Opens in the Philippines Shangri-La Mall Mandaluyong Philippines Cover

When you do a quick Google search on “German Restaurants in Manila”, no definite name seems to come out. There was one just half a decade ago called Mickey’s Delicatessen in Jupiter Street in Makati, with the sausage making now continued at the quaint Poco Deli in Kapitolyo and Ayala Triange Gardens.
