Locavore’s Chef Opens a New Restaurant in BGC: FAT #makemeFAT #FATph

FAT Restaurant – A new awesome concept by the chef of Locavore, one of the more famous restaurant in the Kapitolyo area. I really, really like the concept of this restaurant – unapologetic and heavy on flavor and the same playful interpretations by Chef Mikel Zaguirre, everything we tried for lunch was awesome! From the simple bar mix to the more indulgent main dishes and luscious desserts, FAT has to be one of my favorite new restaurant that opened this year.

Big chunks of really crispy and beautifully fried chicharon pieces topped with green tea salt and served with a pickled vegetable relish and an awesome dipping sauce that’s a combination of honey and pinakurat. GOOD! Continue reading Locavore’s Chef Opens a New Restaurant in BGC: FAT #makemeFAT #FATph

Feast on Tapas, Paella, and Bistecca at Alqueria in SM Megamall

ALQUERIA – A restaurant in SM Megamall that’s formerly known as Boqueria. We recently had dinner here and had a feast, sampling a couple of items from their menu; from the hefty serving of paella to the more filling and decadent dishes, we had a good dining experience here and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food that they serve.

Coffee and Grub Nook: Tipsy Beans

TIPSY BEANS is a recent discovery of mine, was stuck because of traffic along the busy Jupiter Street in Makati due to sudden downpour (rain) so I lingered in this nice little nook of a coffee shop and they have quite the interesting concept so we tried a bunch of stuff from their menu. What makes this place unique is they also specialize with food and drinks spiked with different liquor, the menu is split into two category; sober and tipsy. With good, affordable price point and decent food and drinks, this easily would be one of my top choice for a coffee run when I’m in the area and they serve Vietnamese coffee too which is my absolute favorite.

tipsy_beans_featured_posterA good gauge on how good a coffee shop is would be trying their basic brew, Tipsy Beans uses a mixture of robusta, barako, and arabica for their signature blend making for this aromatic caffeine treat with a nice bold flavor.
