Chuck's Grub Fish & Chips Chippy Shops

Chuck’s Grub Fish & Chips

by Marian Joy Hernandez
The story of Chuck’s Grub Fish & Chips is every budding entrepreneur’s dream. Owner Enrique Valles lived in London for seven years and came home to Manila to head a seafood distribution business. Together with his wife Isha Andaya-Valles, the two had an idea to open a proper fish and chips shop in the Philippines. Like most enterprising beginners, they rented a stall in Mercato Centrale to test the waters. The night market favorite has expanded into six branches around Metro Manila—three of which are full-scale shops called “chippy shops,” where customers can sit down and dine in, instead of the usual takeaway style typical of fish and chips joints in London.

Tutto Domani - A Good Place To Hang Out

Tutto Domani: More than a Remedy for Boredom

by Cityzen | M.C. Jose
Tutto Domani (which translates to “Everything Tomorrow”) is one of Makati’s hidden wonders. Located right across Greenbelt 3 and tucked into a corner of New World Hotel, it is a sure sight for the wandering eye in search for a good place to hang out. I myself would have never noticed Domani had my friends not invited me to visit it. I ended up so enamoured with the café and its food that I dropped by a second time to conduct the actual feature.

Modern Shanghai Restaurant - A Modern Twist on Shanghainese Cuisine

Modern Shangai: Chinese Made Contemporary and Chic

by Beatriz Acosta
 Modern Shanghai at SM Mall of Asia is one of the newest offerings of the Bistro Group restaurant, and this is also the company's first venture into Chinese food. Just like Japanese, Italian, and our very own Filipino cuisine, Chinese fare in our country never fails to satiate the hunger of many. Chinese restaurants are everywhere, and anywhere -- from hole in the wall, mom and pop places that serve Tsinoy style food, little nooks and stores where you can loudly slurp your noodle soup, to hotel-run, elegant fine dining destinations where you delicately clink on your china and chopsticks.

NamNam Restaurant at the Greenbelt 2, Makati City

'Malinamnam' at Namnam: Comfort Filipino

by Cityzen | Chris Mallari
 There’s nothing more comforting than eating food that is familiar to you, something that you’ve loved since childhood. As a Filipino born and raised in this country, I am extremely proud of our local cuisine.  From our leche flan up to our famous lechon, it’s all good and yummy.  It’s no wonder that we have a lot of Filipino themed restaurants catering to our cravings. One of the newest restaurants to fill this need is Namnam: Comfort Filipino at Greenbelt 2.  It’s located right below BurgerBar, another recently opened restaurant.  Both restaurants are owned and operated by the Moment Group, which also owns Cue’ Modern Barbeque in Taguig.  Namnam is the Moment Group’s third restaurant.

I arrived at Namnam around 4pm with a grumbling tummy, ready to take some great shots with my camera. From what I’ve learned doing these articles, it’s always a good thing to arrive hungry and ready to eat.

Boon Tong Kee in Manila - A Taste of Singapore

Boon Tong Kee: A Taste of Singapore

by Cityzen | Crystal Joy Rebucas
Bringing in a known brand from abroad is always tricky, and it requires more work for a first overseas outlet. Boon Tong Kee started as a small stall in Chinatown, Singapore. Mr. Thian Boon Hua’s small business became popular because of his silky white sauce rice chicken and emphasis on quality service. Taking advantage of the consistent positive feedback, he then rallied members of his family to officially open the first branch at Balestier Road. The latest count is now up to seven domestic outlets, thanks to local and foreign fans.

Filipino and Mexican Cuisines at Silantro

Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina

by Trix Deseo
 Silantro's advertised fusion of Mexican and Filipino cuisines would normally have me running towards the opposite direction. It's not that I have any special aversion to fusion. It's just that I'm not interested in having longganisa in my tacos nor am I psyched at the thought of having tapa in my burrito.
But it's a good thing I did not judge Silantro by its name. Because this supposedly “fusion” kitchen doesn't have the Mexipino abomination dishes I imagined. Instead, this humble newcomer at the far end of East Capitol Drive surprisingly assembles nachos, tacos, and burritos better than supposedly “authentic” ones.
