San Francisco Bistro at Tuscany, Mckinley Hill

Feeling the Bay Area Vibe: San Francisco Bistro Along Tuscany, McKinley Hill


It has been quite a year for the comfort food industry. My last few work adventures have had me going in and out of restaurants that tell tales of carbohydrates and gastronomy, putting me in food comas that would make me run to the gym the following day. Still, the “threat” of a carb overload is never enough to stop me from walking through the doors of comfort food establishments assigned to me because there is always another interesting story to be told.

Planet Grapes Discover Wine, One Grape At A Time

Many Filipinos drink wine only during special occasions, usually paired with food bought in upscale delis. We’ll toast a glass during a wedding or New Year’s Eve, but when the daily 5-thirsty rolls along, we usually reach for a bottle of beer or cocktail. Well, Planet Grapes aims to change how we perceive wine drinking, starting with your favorite pulutan.

Once Upon A Milkshake - Home of Thick and Creamy Shakes

Creamier Ever After with Once Upon A Milkshake


This story begins, fittingly enough, on a dark and gloomy night.
Two tired girls attempt to seek shelter from the cold winds underneath a brightly-lit purple and white awning. They are immediately drawn to the parade of colourful characters that came to greet them, delighting in the strange but wonderful sights and sounds that exist in this Wonderland of a kingdom. The girls are also welcomed by Alvin Ng, the King of the Chocolate Castle, and his most trusted vassal, Chico Pasion.

Once Upon A Milkshake, home of thick and creamy shakes
“I’ve always loved milkshakes,” the King admits. “In my homeland of Singapore, there were no establishments that specialise in milkshakes, so I created Once Upon A Milkshake. I wanted to do something that was fun and fairytale-inspired, hence the name. Chico, a longtime fan of the brand, traveled abroad to meet me. After some discussions, I was more than happy to have him bring Once Upon A Milkshake to the Philippines.”

Pancit Center: Pancit Dishes from Various Regions all Under One Roof in Pasig City

There are over 300 ways to cook pancit. And yet, we tend to stick to the all-time favorites: Palabok, Pancit Malabon, Bihon Guisado, Sotanghon Guisado and Pancit Canton. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with the tried and tested, for those looking for a new way to enjoy noodles, there’s Pancit Center. Established in 1978 by Corazon Angeles, it was first called “Cory’s Pancit Malabon” and was initially a takeout counter that specialized in--you guessed it--Pancit Malabon. In the 1990s it became Cory’s Kitchen that also served Filipino dishes. In 2011, inspired by his travels, Cory’s grandson Marc joined the family business and came up with the idea to start serving different pancit dishes from all over the Philippines. Offering 28 pancit varieties from Luzon to Mindanao, Pancit Center makes the ubiquitous dish more interesting.

Excellence is not achieved overnight. It is something that takes time and dedication to attain. And once it’s pulled off, maintaining it is a challenge. After more than three decades in the industry, excellence is something that Cowrie Grill has got down pat. Opened in 1977 as the Manila Hotel’s flagship restaurant, it has managed to sustain a level of merit that like fine wine, only gets better with age.
