Discover places you'll love in the Philippines
After the volleyball game... I went to SM Megamall to try the newly opened restaurant called Yo! Panda. Yes, it's a full house, customers are waiting outside to be seated but there's no line in Takeaway Counter, that's why I grabbed the opportunity to order. I asked the menu from the server. While scanning I noticed that they offers modern Hong Kong inspired dishes... from xiao long baos, cheese noodles and bubble waffles. I tried the Chocolate Fudge Waffle Sundae, it is an Italian gelato, which you can choose from two flavors either chocolate or vanilla but I choose the twisted flavor gelato (combination of vanilla and chocolate) served with egg waffle, brownie chunks, chocolate clusters and chocolate fudge. The interior of the place is green. It is like you are having a picnic in the garden of your house. The servers were very accommodating despite of a busy and jam-packed day especially to the owners who always checked the status of my order... Ooooppps! I forgot their names but they introduced themselves to me, sorry about that... short term memory! LOL After 20 minutes, finally my Choco Fudge arrived, one of the owners apologized for keeping me wait due to long order queues. Nice moved! 🏼🏼 Choco Fudge Sundae for Php180.00 - ️️️️ 4/5 Yo! Panda is located at the 4th Floor of SM Megamall Building A, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City. #ilovetoeat ️
After our lunch at one of the seaside restaurants, my friends and I were thinking of an activity, and one of us recommended that we do karaoke. Luckily, Music Bank is just across dampa and parking is wide and free, so we went for it. We arrived the place a little past 3pm, and saw that they open from 3pm onwards. Just in time for us! We entered and noticed that the staff just finished preparing the place. We were then asked if we wanted to be at the smoking or non-smoking area. We went with the latter. We were led to our room, sat down and checked the menus on the table. You can order food and drinks from them. Later on, I learned that it's kinda required to order (according to my friend, who wasn't supposed to order but had to). The room was excellent, by the way. It had comfy seats and cold air-conditioning units. The karaoke wasn't hard to operate, too. There were lots of songs available, even the new ones. There's no score after each song as well, so transition from first song to the next was fast. You can also be heard singing from the end of the hallway (even if your room is at the other end) hahaha! But no worries, no one's gonna judge you (I hope) The bathrooms were okay, they're clean but not to a point that you'll feel really happy about it. The smell of the cigarette was also a bit strong here. Price is P90 per hour per person. They're nice enough to inform you a few minutes before your hour is up and ask you whether you'll be extending or not. The drinks we had were: P70 for a bottle of mineral water and P85 for a bottle of cerveza negra. We just ate a lot for lunch so we didn't need to order food, although I was supposed to order dessert but they only had fruits. Overall this place is one I'm glad I found!
The place was so comfortable we stayed almost 5 hours. If you really know good coffee, you'd notice right away the freshness of the beans used. Coffee bubbles means freshness of your coffee. It's so obvious that their beans are always delivered fresh to them. It also has a bold coffee flavor. Not sour and acidic at all. We also tried the crepe cake, the flavor is good not too sweet plus it is also instagramable. The cold brew is also a must, the taste is just right, not too bitter and not too sweet. The owners of the place are nice, they had a little chat with us when we were there
I've been intrigued by the interior of this restaurant so I asked Cindy S if we could try this. Poetry & Prose Patisserie not only serves pastries and desserts but also breakfast meals, sandwiches, pasta meals, and crepes. However for this visit, I only ordered something sweet. I had Prose (255php). It is a strawberry custard cheesecake with hazelnut brownie crust. This is so moist and very creamy. It actually tasted good but too heavy for a dessert. I also had their hot chocolate (165php). I didn't enjoy this much. It's not so chocolatey. I should've ordered cappuccino instead. Servers were accommodating. I liked their wall arts! P.S. Since I've already tried their "Prose" cake, next time I'll have their "Poetry" cake. If the former is strawberry-inspired, I heard Poetry's main ingredient is mango. Interesting!
I went to Binondo Church before I start my food trippin' at Binondo's Chinatown. Binondo Church is one of the known landmark in Chinatown. It is situated in the heart of Binondo and in front of Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz. It is also known as Minor Basilica of Saint Lorenzo Ruiz and Our Lady of Most Holy Rosary Parish. The Church was founded in 1596. That's a way way back until it was destroyed in 1762 and completed in 1852. As I enter the church to pay respect and pray, I am amazed with the facades, sculptures and altar of Binondo Church. Binondo Church is really a surviving one despite of wars and calamities the church still stood there. You must not missed this church when visiting Binondo.
Yo! Panda is a newly opened restaurant serving Hong Kong eats. Their menu includes xiao long baos, cheese noodles, poutine, burger baos and egg waffle sundaes. I only got to try their Matcha egg waffle sundae for take out because its jampacked. *hello weekend* Matcha egg waffle sundae was okay. freshly made (do be prepared to wait) their vanilla soft serve was not too sweet. I did like the texture of the egg waffle it was crispy and soft inside. Servers were very accomodating and friendly despite the long lines.
This will be the second time i'm giving Dyce N Dyne a review, particularly because I think I didn't give it a pretty decent review the last time I visited the place. Dyce N Dyne is the culprit behind my board gaming addiction. Aside from having the most boardgames in store because of their partnership with Gaming Library, which is the main distributor of board games here in the Philippines, they actually have the best ambiance and food to date. Dyce N Dyne is a Steam Punk Themed Boardgame Restaurant. The feel is quite different from the usual others with a bright ambiance and welcoming feel. Theirs is more of a gothic, black, dark and mechanical serious type which attracts more serious players so you'll definitely meet newbie and pro gamers here! Every year, they hold an event called "Gen Con" which brings new hot boardgame releases for avid gamers to try and rate. Most gamers get excited during cons cause they're the first ones to try the games and they can play all of it at least once if it doesn't get purchased by the restaurant. Some of my favorite games that I played during the con would be: Sushi Go, SONAR & POTION EXPLOSION, CODENAME PICTURES, RED FLAGS THE GAME OF TERRIBLE DATES friends will purchase this soon! Yey! Honestly at first I got really intimidated on the word "CON", made me remember those Cosplay Cons I attend way back. Since i'm not that familiar with boardgames, I was so worried to be out of place haha! But the other gamers were so friendly which made gaming more enjoyable and less intimidating. Their food is also cheap ranging from P150-300 per order in big serving which will surely keep you full for hours. This is important since you'll be staying for at least 2 hours here. My friends and I stay here for more then 6 hours per visit. Most of their food are deep fried finger food which make it easier for players to eat while playing. They also have rice bowls if you're not into eating with your hands. I love their CHICKEN CURRY and any meal with KARAAGE. Their drinks are served in fancy geeky containers usually in an Ermeyer flask produced by Chemistea. My favorite would be their Matcha Espresso and Matcha Latte. Their Milo Dinousaur is also good and the cafe lattes! Didn't know coffee and milk tea would go so well! They also have various sweet teas and non dairy drinks to choose from. Their staff are accommodating! I know most of their game masters already since I've been going here often (just last week) and been coming back almost every weekend. You won't feel intimidated at all cause the game masters are so friendly and explains the game precisely! They are also very patient especially to SLP's (Slow Pick Up) like me haha! Plus na rin that most of my friends are frequent gamers already so I get to ask them questions paulit ulit haha! Going here releases all my anxiety. Imagine having to deal with all the stress at work for 5 straight days, going here during the weekends really make me forget all the worries I have to think of. It stimulates my creativity and strategical thinking, LOL. Wala kang choice kung hindi mag-isip. Kailangan maging COMPETITIVE! They don't have wi-fi and that factor improves my connection with the people around me. I usually focus on my mobile device but when I'm here I know I just have to keep it and start enjoying the day playing with my best friends! Thanks to Dyce N Dyne and Gaming Library for setting the trend of boardgame restaurants in the country. We can now enjoy the company of our friends, good food and good ambiance all in one place!!! Before I end this review, the following are my favorite games which you might be interested to try (I can play this infinite times): AVALON, MACHIKORO, EXPLODING KITTENS, 7 WONDERS, CRANIUM, DIXIT, KING OF TOKYO, PANDEMIC, SPLENDOR, TICKET TO RIDE, CODE NAMES, MYSTERIUM, SHERIF OF NOTINGHAM, PANDEMIC, MUNCHKIN, COUP, CASH N GUNS, TELESTRATIONS, SUSHI GO, TAKENOKO, SPYFALL, TOKAIDO, BATTLESHIP if you have other game suggestions please let me know!
Fifth Stop: POKEMON GYM. It was around 4pm when we arrived and only a few tables were occupied. I have already been here once before and I remember liking the design of the place. The area is big, perfect for big groups. Also, I think this is more for titas and titos (than for teens). But if you love asian food with a twist, you might want to try this place out. While Jai was busy playing Pokemon, Midz, Cla and I ordered for everyone. The servers were nice and assisted us while ordering. After reading the menu over and over again, we decided to order the following: MANGO AND PAPAYA CATFISH SALAD (365) - I liked and enjoyed this before and was surprised that it still tastes the same. Oh so light and refreshing!! Loved the crispy catfish!! Ony and I liked this one!! PAD THAI (285) - the first time we went here, this was not available so I was excited to try this one. Whenever we eat at any Thai restaurant. we would usually order Pad Thai because Pad Thai is good haha! - Serving size is good for sharing. The "toppings" were generous enough and I think, around 3 pcs of shrimps were added! - This was just okay for me. It was too sweet, so best to add the lime/lemon to at least lessen the sweetness. Or since the catfish salad is sour, best to eat them alternately? (We ate it like that and we enjoyed it! ) CUSTARD BUNS (145 for 2pcs) - last served was the custard buns aka the POKE-BUNS. While ordering, our server told us that they are still not yet available but still, we ordered this one. Just the normal looking custard buns. But after around 30minutes of waiting, we were surprised that they served us with the poke-buns! Yay!! - it's my first time trying this and it was just okay? Not sure how it should exactly taste but it was not bad but not something I will order again. Overall, we still enjoyed this stop. My favorite would be the salad! 🏼 Service was good, just a bit slow. Good thing we're still full and we're all busy playing Pokemon! Btw, since parking is a bit hard here, be sure to park in A. Venue Mall. Parking is free just be sure to keep your receipt. 🏼
It's my sister's 18th birthday tomorrow, so I planned to take a leave from work way back and take her out for a nice lunch. I haven't decided on where I was going to take her until about 2 weeks ago, when I saw promos from BDO. BDO has several tie-ups with hotels and restaurants, and I chose from those and thought that Marriott Hotel is just a few minutes away from our house, why don't we try it? BDO offers 50% off the bill for all BDO Mastercard holders, and this is one's only until the end of August 2016. This is good for a minimum of 2 and maximum of 10 guests. What's lovely about dining in hotels is that they have parking spaces! So convenient! They'll also give you a complimentary parking pass good for 3 hours. So yay again, free parking! Buffet starts at exactly 12nn, but since we expected heavy traffic along the way, we left the house early and arrived Marriott Cafe at around 11:30am (hungry early birds). So we sat down near the entrance of the buffet and waited. Around 11:50am, my name was called and we were assisted to our seats. We were then reminded that buffet starts at exactly 12nn, so I just wandered around to take photos and see what food's available while waiting for the time. Food choices are less compared to other buffets we are used to. I think I can compare the food quantity to Circles in Makati Shangri-La, but Marriott offers a bit more. Here are the variety of food available: 1. Salad bar - greens, macaroni salad, potato salad, kimchi, tomato salad, etc. 2. Cheese, bread, cold cuts? - gouda, Davao's goat cheese, breads, salami, some sort of salty ham (forgot what it's called xD just check the photos), cream cheese, butter, etc. 3. Breads, smoked salmon, salmon gravlax 4. Seafood station - you can have the shrimp, crab, oyster and mussel cooked, plus gambas 5. Halal Station - potato wedges, mashed potato, buttered vegetables, biryani rice, papadum, thai roast chicken, etc. 6. Steak, baby back ribs with corn salsa, red wine chicken stew, crab cake with caper cream sauce 7. Make your own pasta station 8. Japanese Station - maki, around 7 types?, teppanyaki, 3 kinds of tempura, miso soup 9. Grill Station - you can have some rib eye steak, tenderloin steak, lamb steak, salmon, other beef, pork, sausages, chicken barbeque grilled! 10. Pinoy station - bulalong batangas, sinigang na lamang dagat sa Visayas, other "pulutan" items like the tokneneng, sweet and sour meatballs, ginataang sitaw na kalabasa 11. Chinese Station - Roast duck, soy chicken, pork asado, hakaw, siomai, Japanese siomai (nob yangchow) :( 12. Build your own bowl - with stir fried or soup (like a hot pot station). 13. Chocolate fountain - with marshmallows, cookies, fruits, etc. 14. Pinoy Halo-halo in a jar 15. Cakes - cheesecakes, mousse cakes, carrot cake, puto, creme brulee, etc. 16. Gelato station - lots of flavors including bubble gum, pistachio, mocha chip, black forest, etc. My favorites: > I didn't get to eat all of the food choices, but I did enjoy their mashed potatoes and potato wedges. There's nothing really special, I just like potatoes xD the mashed potatoes are creamy, which is exactly what I want. > I also enjoyed their grill station. I'm not actually an expert when it comes to judging the quality of steaks since I haven't tried those expensive, premium cuts, but I liked their steaks (in the grill station). The rib-eye and tenderloin were cooked to a medium-well doneness and these were juicy and tender (you won't need a steak knife). The salmon was also soft. Other thoughts: > If you go to buffets for the Japanese station, I think you're going to be disappointed with Marriott Cafe's > I was disappointed that they don't have the wrapped peking duck :( it's available only for ala carte orders > Pesto pasta was a bit salty > Haven't tried gambas before but theirs tasted a bit weird > No drinks included? But my mom asked for brewed coffee. Not sure if this was added to the bill or not, since the server didn't mention that it's an additional order Service - 5/5 for service! We never ran out of water. Servers were quick to remove our plates as soon as they're empty. They were also very very friendly and all smiles. Even the chefs behind the stations were very friendly and patient. This made our dining experience even more memorable. Their lunch buffet is typically priced at P1,900 per person, but since we have a promo, it only costed us P950 per person! What a deal! Overall, I think their food are not too special. Most of them are typical food. They also have limited food choices per cuisine, but hey, for a discounted price, why not? If I were given a chance to return to this restaurant, I'd definitely go back, more because of their grill station (I'm not sure if other buffet restaurants have this. I enjoyed it a lot - carnivore here). *I have more photos, but since only 10 photos are allowed, I only chose 10 to upload :)
I must say, I think I'm giving it 4 s mainly because I had so much fun with the |ooloo addicts! Nakaka-clingy kayo, Jayson J, EJ B, Christina R, Dennis O, Elaine O, Patrick V, Kristin A, Russel F and Marc David M. (Hope I didn't miss anyone.) It's always nice to be with people who also spend more than 10 minutes taking photos of food before starting the meal. Sorry, Josh G cause I practically delay food service time in every date. Personally, I just found this restaurant too pricey. It was just ok for me. Food tastes great, but I think I can get so much more with the same amount of cash in another place. Plus it's Italian food. (Well slightly Jap-Italian) In theory, Italian food is simple, and Cuomo's food really was just that: simple. The unlimited deep fried pizza dough was delicious. Buono! I can certainly say, had they not been generous in giving these throughout the night, I will not be full. So I'm glad they have this cause I somehow I felt the value of my money. From the 3 pizzas we ordered, I liked the 4 cheese the most, mainly because of the honey. You can make me eat anything sweet-savory. I guess my palette is truly Filipino. The D.O.C. was nice, but not my favorite. I didn't really like the one with Italian sausage. I absolutely loved the Butabara Yakitori! They were large, very tasty and very affordable! This, I'd come back for! I can imagine myself trying out the whole Yakitori list instead, and maybe enjoy their bread basket and I'm good to go. Though it made the menu a tad confusing, it turned out to be my favorite! From the pastas, I found both recommended items just ok. The Carbonara was delicious, and the pasta was nicely al dente. I just found again super mahal for the plate. The lamb Ragu was good too, but again nothing too special for me. We also tried the Rib-eye. We were quite a number of persons so it was ok to split the price, but frankly my boyfriend and I could've finished this plate. It was delicious and all, but again very expensive. I really liked this dish though, the meat very tender and with a nice amount of fat and the sauce did not disappoint. I may be just in #hampaslupamode that I found everything too expensive, but maybe I'd come back... When I'm rich. (So not anytime soon. Hahaha ) It was an absolutely great night with awesome people nonetheless. I wish I didn't have to leave so soon but I had to take a flight back to Cebu already then. I'm more looking forward to seeing these people again and enjoying more places! Grazie mille, everyone! Till the next meet up!
I don't usually try new restos unless recommended by a trusty source so when my foodie colleague vibered me about this place, hubby and I decided to have lunch there right the next day! The place is like almost hidden at the very end of southmall, near savory and the bowling alley. When we entered, no one approached us right away so we just seated ourselves. No biggie Prices were insane! Insane in a good way! Their 1lb of shrimp is php395 as opposed to the other place in McKinley which is almost php600. They also have half pound orders except for the salted egg flavor which is php440/lb. other flavors I remember are butter garlic, spicy (gata) and just halabos. They also have a WIDE variety of other dishes like BBQ, bangus, tempura and even lobster fish! Rice is unli at 45 pesos, whuttt?!? We tried the house special which is the Choobi bay bag, 1lb of shrimp in their Cajun sauce. We also added corn and sausage. Baked scallops on the side. Servers were super polite and food came out quicker than expected 🏼 Needless to say, we won't be going back to McKinley just for shrimp total bill was just php800! Can't wait to go back!
Pssst, Pogi... This is the common colloquial phrase Filipinos use when trying to get someones attention. Commonly heard in flea markets and the friendly neighborhood talipapa. This is how the brilliant minds behind Hey Handsome came up with their name. It's a clever interpretation of the phrase. The foodie universe got a lil giddy about the arrival of the dashing debonair. Yes, i was one of them. I was tortured with a lot of articles online showcasing how awesome the food is. So yeah, this made me uneasy for x number of weeks. It has become a habit to check all social media outlets to get the inside scoop as to when they would open their doors to the public. I waited and waited like the shameless fangirl that i am. Hey Handsome is the brainchild of Nico Santos (Your Local) and Charlie Paw (The Tasteless Group). Their names sound familiar eh? I'm not surprised as I consider them as the Mavericks of the culinary x restaurant world. Nico is the purveyor of eclectic mix of flavors. The innovator who isn't afraid in dabbling with the unfamiliar and the obscure. Charles is the Megamind behind the best restaurants in the city, the rebel who brought the baddest bird on the planet. #TastelessGroupie August 22nd is the day i was waiting for - Dinner at Hey Handsome. #TheUsualSuspects meets Hey Handsome. I arrived first as this is one elevator ride x 15 steps away from where i work. I was greeted by warm smiles from the wait staff. The Interior. Modern and industrial. The perfect marriage in the design universe. Let's talk modernity, i am referring to the lovely lighting fixtures. There are couple of tube like structures with light bulbs that keeps the dining area easy on the eyes. Industrial, why? Oh i am referring to the steel door of the loo! Reminds of Felix' artsy loft in Orphan Black. The fluorescent lamp-ish fixture on the communal table is reminiscent of a Science Laboratory. Smart as it creates an excellent juxtaposition with the teal tiles and the steel door. It looks mighty fine from where i was seated. And before i forget, their playlist is wicked good - old school hip hop, world music and a lil indie! Food. A mix of Malaysian, Penarakan and Thai Cuisine. Be warned, the dishes is not something you always see in Asian Bistros. Pray to have good data connection for Google Usage. Note: I will use my cheat sheet for pseudonyms i used for their dishes. | Streetname: Red, also known as Beetroot Paneer. Php 480. This comprises of beetroot paneer, quinoa tabbouleh, house yogurt and pappadum. This is a modern, vegan interpretation of a popular vegetarian cuisines from different continents. Paneer and Papadum is a staple in Indian fare, whilst Tabbouleh hails from the Middle East. Instead of using milk as the main ingredient for the paneer, they used beets. Quinoa was used instead of tomatoes for the tabbouleh making this plate a dream come true for Vegetarians. I ain't a fan of beets but this plate is an exception, the strong nutty after taste is not noticeable. The quinoa adds a lovely contrast of flavour to the dish while the papadum takes care of the crunch. | Streetname: Dark Knight (not familial ties with Bruce) also known as Buah Keluak. Php 560. A lovely concoction of goat, buah keluak, nasi ulam, sambal matah and kerupek. Pangium edule (Keluak in Indonesian and Kepayang in Malay) is a tall tree native to the Mangrove swamps of Southeast Asia. It produces a large poisonous fruit (the "football fruit") which can be made edible by fermentation. Why the science lesson, you ask? The main ingredient of this dish is the fresh fruit and seeds from the tree that contains hydrogen cyanide. This is deadly when consumed sans fermentation. I personally like this dish as it has an element of danger in it. The meat is very tender. I didn't know that they used goat meat until Charles mentioned it, it tastes like beef shortribs. The flavor is something that i can't describe (Penarakam Cuisine neophyte), all i know is that my tastebuds gave their nod of approval. I like the fact that they paired this with fragrant rice as it complements the beef stew perfectly. And oh, the black crunch thingy is squid ink infused kropek! Gah! I can eat this by the bucket. Streetname: Bananarama (no affiliation with the musical group), also known as Nam Tok. Php 560. Barbecue beef shortribs x khao man and som tam. Nam Tok is of Thai descent, this is either a soup of a meat salad. This delicacy is commonly found in streetside stalls in Bangkok. Handsome's version is neither in soup nor salad from. Theirs is a complete meal, it comprises of juicy, flavorful and tender shortribs barbecued to perfection. The som tam adds a beautiful contast to the tender meat. It adds a lil zest and tang. What ive noticed is that they always pair their savory meat dishes with refreshing rice dishes. Cohesive, in my opinion as it balances things out. | Streetname: Phil Dunphy (not the character in Modern Family), also known as Laap Phet. Php 300. A beautiful combination of minced duck, deep fried egg, herbs and khao man. A crowd favourite. This is probably the only dish they have with light flavors. Not as strong as Buah Keluak but has enough flavor to entice your tastebuds. The minced duck is divide, perfect balance of seasoning and goes well with the jasmine rice (khao man). I would recommend this dish for those who hasn't dabbled in uncharted cuisines. | Streetname: Duffy D, also known as Bebek Penyet. Pho 680. Deep fried white pekin duck, duck egg, nasi ulam and achar. This is my favourite! First time to eat duck and i was blown away. The meat is succulent and oozing with flavors. The nasi ulam (Malaysian Mixed Herb Rice) goes well with the meat. As previously mentioned, they know how to pair the other elements of dish for an excellent flavor combination. Nothing too rich that will overpower the duck. If we are talking Chemistry, all of the dishes have the perfect PH level. | Streetname: P. Sherman, also known as Nasi Lemak. Php 645. Seabass otah, nasi lemak, ikan bilis brittle, sambal and pickled egg. I've always liked seabass, it is the kind of fish that possess sophisticated flavor. A certain level of expertise is required to cook this. If you add too much, the fish gets lost in translation. If you add less, you might end up with something bland. Handsome's version is perfect as the sambal and the brittle is served on the side. You get to taste the unadulterated flavor of the fish. If you want heat, add some sambal, if you want crunch add some brittle. The dish is carefully designed to cater to specific flavor combinations. Sweets. | Yogurt (php 200). House yogurt, black sesame and beetroot. I love yogurt! The marriage of yogurt and black sesame paste is a match made in dessert heaven! The yogurt has the right amount of tang and the black sesame adds a lil bit of sweetness that elevates the yogurt to superstar status. And the black thingy, that's black sesame wafer. Paper thin and extremely addicting. | Kueh Dadar (php 180). Rose crepe, gula melaka, coconut milk and galangal cream. This was just okay, the coconut filling reminded me of chunks of desiccated coconut. Frankly speaking, i dunno how to describe this dish. I'm loss for words. If you want to stay inside your comfort zone, stick with the yogurt. | Cream Puff (php 190). Durian, pate a choux, gula melaka and brown butter powder. I'll be honest in saying that this is not for everyone. This is not the usual cream puff you meet at the bakery. They use durian infused cream filling! The pastry is soft and fluffy but they went a lil overboard with the filling. The flavor is too strong, i suddenly found myself drinking lots of water hoping to wash away the pungent durian flavor. I meant no offence, personal preference, i guess. I appreciate the effort of using an unpopular fruit. It goes to show that they are not afraid to use unconventional ingredients. Mocktails. | Magic Milk (php 180). | Donkey Punch (php 130) | Cherry Pop (php 150) I tried Magic Milk and i absolutely love it. This is made of yuzu yogurt, passionfruit, thai chili and butter. I love the tang of the yogurt mixed with the creamy butter. No spice at all, i ain't complaining as i taste magic in every sip. Dinner was fantastic. The staff is knowledgeable with the food they serve. They are always on their feet to attend to customers needs. All food related questions are responded to with warm smiles. One particular server stood out he was the friendliest of them all. I was the instigator, i noticed his ink and the intricate lines. Then we ended up chatting with him for a couple of minutes. Don't you just love it when there is friendly interaction? We also had the chance to meet Chef Nico! This got me giddy as i recently visited Your Local and I'm still in awe of the salmon. Unsolicited advice. I think it would be better to add "familiar" Asian Dishes on the menu as not all Filipinos are not that accustomed to Penarakan, Malay and Thai Cuisine. When i say, familiar, i dont mean conventional. Deconstructed Nasi Goreng or Mee Goreng perhaps? Thank you for having us, Pogi. We had a grand time! My first brush with Penarakan Cuisine is memorable. Thank you, Charles for your generosity. Thank you, Chef Nico for letting us taste your wonderful culinary creations. Thank you, Mary Love S You know what i mean. Fun times with #TheUsualSuspects Abe C Ruth S as always and nice to see you again, Denise A Sorry, it took me a while to finish this review. I guess if you are reading this sentence, you probably know why. Peace Out! ~Reich
