Mixology Class with Mari Kamata at The Peninsula Manila

November 24, 2017

Mari Kamata, one of Japan's top bartenders visits The Peninsula Manila and gets behind the bar at The Salon de Ning for a 2 day show of talent and skill. Join her Mixology Class on November 24 & 25, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Learn the details and inspirations behind each cocktail, carefully spun with artistic touches to add on to the classic familiar pieces. Featuring premium 10-yr old Ardbeg single malt whisky, Belvedere Pure vodka, and Hennessy VSOP cognac brands from Moët Hennessy, and with additional festive season alcoholic and non-alcoholic options, the mixology class will explore the art and science of mixology while you sip on the cocktails paired with canapés in the eccentric art deco interior of Salon de Ning. 

Each room at Salon de Ning offers a different experience and the best one will depend on your mood. I personally enjoyed the library / study setup the most, as my laid-back personality acclaims to its cozy look and feel; comfy couch and antique cabinets.

Mari Kamata's expertise is reflected in the numerous awards she has collected over the last 20 years of bartending, including the 2009 "Diageo World Class Cocktail Competition" in London, the 2013 "Gin Connoisseur Program" in France, a finalist spot at the "007 Belvedere Challenge 2015" in Sydney, and the top prize in the 2016 "Seven Star Train Cocktail Recipe Competition" in Japan.

Mari Kamata's proficiency in the classics give her a solid foundation for creativity and adaptability to cater to any drink a customer may request.

Matcha Martini (650 PHP)

Starting off with a refreshing cocktail made from traditional prepared green tea matcha and Belvedere Vodka for alcohol.

Fat Daddy's Smokehouse : Ribs and more!

November 21, 2017

Taste and feel the Western vibe with Fat Daddy's smokey, homey, hearty pork ribs paired with hearty sides and somewhat healthy bites - fried pickles comes to mind.

Hot Mess (170 PHP)

The Hot Mess is their version of mashed potato with loads of cheese, pulled pork, topped with bacon, because there's never enough meat at Fat Daddy's. It's served on a skillet to keep it warm and the cheesy gooey with every scoop.

Hot Pork Poppers (175 PHP)

It's pork skin, not chicken skin said my friend who ordered this appetizing treat. It's amazingly thin and crisp texture will have you popping them in your mouth.

Bacon S'mores Dip (250 PHP)

Loaded with melted chocolate and toasty marshmallows, topped with crispy bacon, sided with graham crackers to scoop it all together. I hope this dessert will meat your expectations.

Fat Daddy's at U.P. Town Center in Quezon City isn't too far from their original restaurant in Marikina, but will certainly entertain more meat hungry diners. This would have been their 3rd store, if they haven't closed their branch by The Burgos Circle in BGC, I regret not visiting more often when it was available in our area.

Lung Hin : Hong Kong Roast Goose and More!

November 17, 2017

Hello Eaters! I hope you’re ready for another splurge as the delicious dishes we’re about to share might just have you ordering all of them or maybe even more, but first a brief look at the venue.

Lung Hin Chinese restaurant is located on the 44th floor of Marco Polo Manila in Ortigas. They offer diners a contemporary ambiance and a panoramic view of the metro, so reserve in advance as they only have 4 window-side tables available. If you’re celebrating an occasion we suggest booking one of their private rooms, which also feature the same views, but with the added benefit of privacy. Lung Hin’s menu specialises in authentic Cantonese dishes and fresh seafood. We were lucky enough to have dined during The Golden Goose Promotion (November 6 -21, 2017), which featured guest Chef Billy Cheong who flew-in all the way from Hong Kong to share his over 40 years of culinary expertise in the fine art of roasting goose.

Quarter Roast Goose (1,580 PHP / 32 USD)

Roast Goose Price and Set Menu (Nov 9 - 21, 2017)

The quarter portion of roast goose is good enough for 3-4 persons or 2 hungry apes, which we were at the time. Have your rice served ahead as the goose juices shouldn't be wasted.

Quarter Suckling Pig (888 PHP)

When only the skin matters. The sound of crisp pig skin cracking in your mouth is just pure satisfaction. Slowing savouring the crumble pieces and following it through with some meat, rice and sauce just seals the deal.

Vegetable Dumpling (220 PHP)

Its striking red appearance signals sinful pleasures, but don't let that fool you, it's just vegetables inside this light visual treat.

Steamed Scallop Dumpling (240 PHP)

Steamed Barbecue Pork Bun (240 PHP)

Sugar coated buns filled with savoury pork barbecue cubes. A delightful sweet and savoury start that you can instead of dim sum.

For the main course we stuck with the star attraction; the roast goose. You can't resist just picking it up to nibble every bit of it, for a truly hands-on experience.

We're looking forward to more of Lung Hin!

Little Flour Cafe by Wildflour

November 03, 2017

Little Flour Cafe - the little sister to the popular Wildflour Cafe + Bakery is now open at the ground floor of World Plaza building in Bonifacio Global City.

The Chairdelier centerpiece.

The first thing we noticed was the numerous chairs on the ceiling forming a chandelier or as we call it "The Chairdelier" is a unique piece that plays well with the theme. If you look closely some them are school chairs.

What's on Little Flour's menu? It's Filipino flavours done in Wildflour fashion, a quality driven perspective that enhances the simplest of dishes. We're excited to try the rest of the menu, but here's a couple for now.

Chorizo Breakfast Burger (395 PHP)

Chorizo Breakfast Burger includes a side of crispy potatoes. A manageable bun, juicy chorizo patty, cheese slice, a sunny side egg, and arugula just calls to be handled.

Sisig Bowl - Solo (250 PHP) or Sharing (400 PHP) *Photo of the solo bowl

A comforting bowl filled with a mix of white and red rice, onions, chives, and crispy pork bits,  it's a familiar taste will alway win you over especially during those days when you don't know what to eat.


They have special items only found at this branch like the dreamy Ube Bomboloni, the delicate yet tangy Calamansi Pie, and the Ube and Queso Ensaymadas.

TIP : Breads & Pastries are 25% off when for Take-out 5 - 7 PM Daily.

Ube Bomboloni (110 PHP) rich ube cream in a light and fluffy doughnut.

Cheese Ensaymada (95 PHP) what makes this simple ensaymada great is the finely grated cheese resting on a creamy butter layer with no sugar involved, just cheese. 

UPDATE: Their ensaymada changed formula to a more doughnut like consistency with sugar, we'll submit an opinion.

TIP : Breads & Pastries are 50% off after 7PM daily.

Calamansi Pie (175 PHP) if you're looking for a sharp ending to your meal, then this dessert is just right. A delicate graham base with a creamy calamansi custard that's delicate and tangy at the same time. It doesn't overwhelm, it peaks then smoothens out for another bite.
