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.

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?).

Las Flores Tapas Bar Fort Bonifacio Philippines_130814-3
