Sensei Sushi Bar Restaurant

A Fusion of Flavors at Sensei Sushi Bar

by Cityzen | Kathrina Paz Elefante
 Sometimes when a restaurant is relatively smaller, it can be easily overlooked. But small does not mean less - sometimes this aspect serves as an advantage, especially when flavors and overall dining experience more than make up to what it seemingly lacks in size.
Make room for Sensei Sushi Bar, a culinary vanguard which proves that great things can come in smaller packages.

Marufuku Japanese Restaurant

Marufuku: Authentic Japanese Cuisine

by Cityzen | Chris Mallari
It’s always a pleasure finding new restaurants. I used to actively look for new places and then let friends and family know how it was (it’s probably one of the reasons why I got this writing gig in the first place). And a few weeks ago, I saw a banner announcing this new Japanese restaurant. I positively had to go and check it out. I was like a moth to the flame.

Forget Me Not Specialty Cakes By Chef Pixie Sevilla Santos

Forget Me Not Specialty Cakes: A Step Back in Time

by Cityzen | M.C. Jose
 Chef Pixie Sevilla Santos has been playing her A-game for awhile now. She’s been fond of sweet things since she was a child, and even left to study abroad in order to pursue her dreams of becoming a pastry chef. “It was destiny for me to be here,” she remarks. “At that time, Seattle’s Best was just going to open, and they offered me to be their supplier. I already had some recipes that I wanted to label with Forget-Me-Not, but those were the things that customers had to get from my house.” They sublisted a space in Hot Rocks, but it didn’t work out quite so well, so Chef Pixie relegated back to a home-based business. Her clients wanted to be able to reach her at a more accessible location, so she decided to open up Forget Me Not Specialty Cakes, a small store in Makati.

Solace Wine and Dine at One Greenbelt Hotel

New Date Place Alert: Solace Wine & Dine

by Marian Joy Hernandez
 Pritong kare-kare? Lamb with blue cheese mashed potato? Durian brulee? What are you and where have you been all my life? Read Solace Wine & Dine’s menu and swoon with me because this is it, boys and girls, a restaurant that finally understands complex cravings only the hearty eater can fully comprehend. 

Bring a date because it’s a shame not to share this comfort food haven, with a location that is accessible, yet far from the crowd of nearby malls. Exuding the ambiance of a quaint but modern restaurant, Solace Wine & Dine can be found on the ground floor of the newly opened One Greenbelt Hotel along Arnaiz Road in Makati. It’s casual chic on the outside, but definitely friendly inside.

NIC's Gourmet Desserts

NIC’s Gourmet Desserts: Just a Little Sweeter

by Cityzen | M.C. Jose
 Once upon a time, NIC’s Gourmet Desserts was a commissary company that offered food and dessert items to coffee shops and restaurants. Owner Rina Go tailored the business to make use of quality-oriented, homemade family recipes in order to cater to clients who are always seeking something special. As a result, customers began to request for her to put up a store where they could easily purchase and pick up their orders. In 2011, their little San Juan shop—named after Go’s daughter, Nic—was born.

Forque Resto Bar

I’m a fan of hole-in-the-wall type of restaurants that may not quite be in the limelight but offer stellar food. One such discovery is the resto-bar called Forque.

Welcome to Forque
Its warm yet bold interiors greeted me as I stepped inside the place. The wooden furnishings and dramatic drapings contrasted well with the bright red walls—it was a good backdrop for a nice lunch or night out.

Atelier 317 Restaurant

Dine in Quaintness at Atelier 317

by Cityzen | M.C. Jose
Unless I’m really craving something, I don’t usually have a good answer to the question, “Where would you like to eat?”, which sometimes becomes a minor cause of delay. There are so many places to go to when you want to eat Japanese, Chinese and Italian; there are times when you want to eat something that is not-exactly-French or not-exactly-Indian, so everything ends up a little more complicated. Fortunately, Stephanie Zubiri’s Atelier 317 and its delicious anything-goes cuisine is here to alleviate that culinary burden.

Yellow Halo Guilt Free Kitchen Restaurant

Yellow Halo Restaurant Shows Us What a Healthy Diet Plate Looks Like

by Trix Deseo
 Since we're still in the first quarter of the year, I'm pretty sure most of you are on some sort of a New Year's resolution diet. While anyone's determination to shed off excess holiday fats is always laudable, the means most people choose to get to their ideal weight are often questionable. Are you supposed to follow the no carb, rice-is-evil diet? Or is eat-like-a-caveman a.k.a Paleo diet the best way to get leaner? How about the GM Diet? Does it really make you lose 15 pounds in a week?
