Lovely Dinner at 22 Prime of Discovery Suites Ortigas

22 Prime at Discovery Suites Ortigas – I had a lovely dinner here the other night, an indulgent meal that showcases their specialty dishes that they crafted specially for the upcoming holidays. Been hearing a lot of great things about this place from foodie friends and I’m very happy that I was able to try their food and other offerings last night. A fun night of good food and wine as well as bespoke cocktails by Enzo Lim.

MARCO POLO MANILA – Cucina the hotel’s all day dining ala carte and buffet restaurant dives into a Spanish food festival in time of the arrival of their new executive chef, Lluis Cantons Pesarrodona and he brings to Manila some of his favourite family recipes of simple but very good Catalan food.

cucina_marco_polo_manila_ortigas_paellaThe star of our lunch and the preview of this La Catalana food festival was undoubtedly the chef’s Paella Mixta. I love how he shares what he things is the secret to this festive dish. “Paella should have a little bit of everything but nothing in excess”. Not only is this paella a true eye-candy with my eyes glued to those carabinero / big head red prawns that they flew in from Spain, it actually very good as well.

Go-En Ramen Shop in Quezon City

GO-EN Ramen Shop – A nice legit Japanese Ramen Shoppe that serves some of the most unique and very good bowls of ramen treats that I’ve had in the Quezon City area. Owned by a couple that is still based in Japan, their recipes are authentic with some unique dishes that you’ll probably won’t find anywhere else. This is definitely my new favourite ramen place in the North.

go-en_ramen_quezon_city_cheese_ramenA personal favourite from the stuff that we tried, their Cheese Ramen. A lovely miso base and the nice springy noodles and then there’s that mound of cheese and underneath than mountain of creamy goodness is actually ground pork, then there’s some sweet corn and aji-tamago mixed in – heaven in your mouth! This is super good, a bit on the heavy side because of the rich and very flavourful soup base and as the grated cheese mixes and melts into the soup base it becomes more thick and creamy. A definite must-try! Continue reading Go-En Ramen Shop in Quezon City
