JET 7 BISTRO: A NEW DINER THAT FEELS LIKE HOME



Urban life nowadays can be very demanding and, most of the time, stressful. Our career eats up a huge portion of our schedule and these days, nothing can be more important than a work-life balance in its true sense. It has been said, time immemorial that spending time with family, the people you care for, is time well spent and won’t ever regret doing. Of course it helps to spend it in a place that feels like home when you’re actually outside you’re home.
  
Well, here’s good news! There will be a new diner in town that feels just like that – Jet 7 Bistro Diner, a place that gives the same comfort you always long for while trying make past a grueling week in school or in the office. It will re-open this October, located along Timog Avenue Quezon City, serving organic and gluten-free comfort food choices (mom will surely approve of) and will certainly tickle everyone’s taste buds. Best of all, these offerings are very affordable, perfect for family bonding time. 

Remember how Jet 7 Bistro looked like before? Here you go!

WATAMI JAPANESE CASUAL RESTAURANT: NEW DISHES AT SHANGRI-LA MALL


       Though it was my go-to restaurant for Japanese food for quite some time, I sadly hadn't been to Watami in quite some time. When my friends from the Bistro Group revealed that Watami was revealing no less than 12 dishes, I knew I needed to go back and check out their new offerings!

ADOBO MADE EASY WITH DATU PUTI'S ADOBO SERIES!


          Adobo is perhaps the quintessential Filipino dish. The uncanny thing about it is how it differs not only from region to region, but from one family to another as well. You can say that it is the prime example of how Filipino food is made with love, because it is tweaked to fit the tastes of specific families, making practically every family's secret recipe unique in its own way.

      There are a whole bunch of ways to prepare Adobo, and Datu Puti has made it so much easier for you to choose what style you want in a snap, with it's all new Adobo Series sauces!

MAKATI DIAMOND RESIDENCES: A NEW STANDARD OF LUXURY


          I love to travel every now and then, but when it comes to unwinding, I'm more than happy to just enjoy a "Staycation" in the city. One place that I highly recommend staying at, is one of the newest in Makati, and is strategically situated right in front of the Greenbelt Complex, making it possibly the best location in Manila. I'm talking about Makati Diamond Residences, one of the most impressive hotels in the country today.

RAIN AND THE DIN TAI FUNG PHILIPPINES KIDDIE CLUB


              Perhaps the most famous Xiao Long Bao restaurant in the world, is Din Tai Fung. In fact in can be argued that it is the most famous restaurant to come from Taiwan, and despite the numerous food choices available, no trip to Taipei is complete without visiting Din Tai Fung. 

            This rings true even for a foodie such as myself, because I found myself at Taipei late last year, and despite there being two branches of Din Tai Fung in Metro Manila, my friends and I found it mandatory to visit the branch near Yong Kang Street. 

           Rina and I got word of a new promo that Din Tai Fung Philippines came out with that was perfect for Rain, so we thought we would take her to the branch at Bonifacio Square so she could get her fill of her favorite Shao Mai and Xia Long Bao, and earn prizes at the same time with her Din Tai Fung Kiddie Club Passport!

HOTEL JEN MANILA: WHERE YOU CAN LEAVE BORING BEHIND


          Without a doubt, the Philippines is still a third world country, but you'd never know it from the wide range of internationally renowned luxury hotels scattered around the metropolis. One such hotel often gets lost in the shuffle of the high profiles names is Hotel Jen. Being part of the Shangri-la group, one of the biggest names in hospitality world wide, it's clear to see why Hotel Jen can easily be overshadowed by its higher profile sister companies, but when you cut to the heart of it, when it comes to service and accomodations, Hotel Jen Manila can actually stand side by side with the best in the country today!

MAMA LOU'S: THE LOVE SPREADS TO AYALA MALLS AT THE 30TH!


            One of my favorite success stories, is that of Mama Lou's. From a humble eatery running out of a family household, to one of the most popular Italian restaurant chains in the country today. I was quite relieved that they opened a branch at UP Town Center, since I'm rarely down South. But my friends at Mama Lou's ended up doing me one better. Just a couple of months ago, Mama Lou's opened yet another branch, this time just a few minutes away from my office, at the recently opened Ayala Malls at the 30th in Pasig!

FIRESIDE IGNITING BONIFACIO HIGH STREET


          I absolutely love the work of Chef Chiloy Santos, the man behind institutions such as Tender Bob's, Kettle and Fireside. I am a fan of American Cuisine, and Chef Chiloy admittedly draws a lot of his inspiration from his travels around the United States. When his latest concept, "Fireside by Kettle" opened at SM Mega Fashion Hall a couple of years ago, I made sure to be there on the first week that it opened with my family to celebrate my birthday. Since then, I've been back a few more times, and each time I've visited, the food has remained consistent, with the food getting better and better each time. 

           The success of the Megamall branch has led to an inevitable expansion, this time at Bonifacio High Street.
