Juju Eats A New Spin On Salad

Fast food chains in Makati are everywhere. And so with the opening of Juju Eats, the city welcomes the first full-service salad bar and restaurant with open arms and a sigh of relief. Located along Chino Roces Avenue Extension (formerly Pasong Tamo Extension), the newly opened establishment is fast attracting health buffs, vegetarians, and those who want to take a break from their usual meals oftentimes replete with sodium and grease. Makati is a mecca of dining venues, but a full-service salad bar has been a long time coming, indeed.

Burger Bar - An Authentic Burger Experience Soda Shop Style

Burger Bar is Cheat Day Haven


Manila will probably never tire of burger joints. After all, a great burger is permanent in the holy grail of comfort food. It’s like a vacation: the first thing Iron Man requests after being released from his captors, and one of comic character Jughead Jones’ most favorite things in the world.

Magnum Opus Fine Coffee Gallery in BF Homes Parañaque

Magnum Opus Fine Coffees: The Art and Science of Coffee


I’m one of those people who have to have their coffee in the morning or else I won’t be able to function the whole day. And like many urbanites, coffee shops are my usual habitat – I hang out there to do my work (ambient noise for the creative mind), discuss ideas or just do nothing with good friends while sipping a hot caffeinated beverage. But when I came across Magnum Opus Fine Coffees, I found myself asking “What do I really know about coffee besides it’s supposed to wake me up?”.

Tapeo - A Casual Tapas Bar at The Fort Strip

Tapeo: The Perfect Solution to Food ADHD


Until I discovered the magic of tapas, I never realised that my food ADHD and my Spanish upbringing would make the perfect dining combination. My lack of ability to order a single dish and consume it wholly often puts me in ordering jeopardy when I’m dining out. I find it difficult to resist the temptation to sample everything that jumps out at me from restaurant menus because my internal adventurer has a bigger pull on my mental stability than my logical self. But tapas—and Tapeo, by extension—is all about variety.

Misto Lobby Dining @ Seda Hotel BGC

Have a Leisurely Lunch at Misto, Seda BGC

Misto, in Italian, means mixed. It is often used in conjuction with fritto, as in fritto misto, to denote a medley of deep-fried vegetables, meat, and seafood. Caffeine-junkies would also recognize the term misto as a cup of Americano served with steamed milk.

But you won't find a plate of fritto misto nor a cup of misto (they have latté though) at Misto, a fairly-new restaurant at the lobby of Seda Hotel BGC. Instead, you'd get a menu that highlights local dishes, mixed with some Western favorites; all are plated it in a way that's at par with international standards.

A New Restaurant in QC - Myons French Mediterranean Cuisine

Dine with Class at Myons French Mediterranean Cuisine

While new and exciting casual dining restaurants are popping up almost everywhere in the metro, we're seeing fine dining outlets slowing down and taking the backseat. It's not hard to imagine why since nowadays, save for special occasions, we dining folks find satisfaction in price-friendly restaurants that allow us to go home with happy bellies.

Myons French Mediterranean Cuisine, a new restaurant in Quezon City, braves to be different and defies the comfort food trend by bringing fine-dining back into the fold. With its elegant interiors and state-of-the-art menu offerings, Myons is hoping to put full-service restaurants back into the game.

Sunshine Kitchen: New York City Represent


Sunshine Kitchen, with its brick walls and subdued lighting, takes its inspiration from New York City bistros. They serve hearty meals coupled with cocktails, hard liquor, and various types of local and imported beers. “Being Western -oriented, cuisine-wise, Sunshine Kitchen caters to a lot of cuisine branches under that umbrella,” Tanya adds. “I am personally partial to Spanish food, so many of our dishes are Spanish-inspired. We use the freshest ingredients and hardly any processed or canned food. We also try to source produce locally, if possible.”

GrandMomma’s Kitchen - A New Home-Style American Restaurant

Sweet, Sweet Nostalgia: GrandMomma's Kitchen


As a young girl, I’d always equate Sundays to lunches at my lola’s house. Going to grandma’s for the weekend meant indulging in home-cooked comfort food, spending time with the family, and claiming dibs on the swings at the park a few streets away. Most of us would not find it difficult to think up such simple pleasantries when we recall our childhood. GrandMomma’s Kitchen, a new home-style American restaurant owned by partners Kristian Gadia and Angel Pelayo, now stands at Il Terrazzo as a testament to the good old days.

Weekday Lunch at Cafe 1771

Cafe 1771: Now Serving Daily Lunch Specials


It's always a delightful experience stepping inside Café 1771. I'm a sucker for pretty colors and arresting color combinations, so just drinking in the interiors and decor of both The Whimsy and The Lounge sections is good enough of a time. Place my personal cheesy favorites on the table, Raclette (P350) and Melt-in-your-mouth Grilled Cheese SW (P280), as well as their signature dessert darling, the Coffee Pie (P220), and you're bound to treat all your senses, from palette to palate.

Mr. Bean Philippines - A Taste of Fresh Soya Milk, Taho and Pancakes

Mr. Bean Fresh Soya Milk, Taho, and Pancakes


Most lactose-intolerants-- individuals who lack the enzyme lactase and aren't able to digest the sugar lactose-- are able to remain symptom-free by shunning ice cream, milk chocolate, and cheese. But when you're a food-loving lactose-intolerant who grew up immersed in the restaurant industry like Anne King (second generation of the family that runs Jollibee Foods), you don't just “shun” milk. You go out of your way, in her case Singapore, to seek the best alternative. And once you've found it, in this case, Mr. Bean, you endure years of negotiations just to be able to share it with the rest of the country.
