Two of my favorite local chefs recently teamed up for an amazing collab at one of my favorite buffet spots in the city. Chef Sau Del Rosario with his iconic and elevated kapampangan dishes and Chef Miko Aspiras that’s famous for his out of the box dessert creations. Their signature dishes will be available at Corniche – the buffet restaurant of Diamond Hotel until July 1.This is Chef Sau’s Crispy Kare-Kare Macadamia – one of his signature dish and is a real crowd pleaser. It’s the rich and luscious kare-kare dish that we all know and love cooked with macadamia nuts as base for the sauce and then you get that whiff of truffle oil. So good specially with a lot of bagoong and rice!

Le Petit Souffle is a new restaurant concept by young and talented pastry chefs Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla, you might know them as they spearhead the very successful craft cookie place that’s also in Century City Mall – Scout’s Honor. I was very excited about this concept as it’s quite unique, a French-Japanese inspired bistro with the desserts and sweet tooth treats the star of the show, but they have savory dishes too, some very good ones at that.

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE – My obsession for warm and cold dessert materialized in this pan of rich and decadent chocolate lava cake, chocolate truffle magnum and these cute little crisp choco pearls that gives a nice burst of crunch to the bite.
