On a whim my wife and I visited the newly opened Buffet 101 at the New Glorietta, we were enticed by the promise of an elegant and upscale buffet that they were able to deliver in their Mall of Asia branch. Their tagline of serving the same level of gastronomic experience as in upscale hotels is up for my judgment.

Yakimix PRIME: A New Buffet Selection at BGC

Yakimix Prime at Bonifacio High Street

2nd Floor, Wumaco Building, BHS, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

The problem with BGC is that the food scene has a very limited buffet choices in the area. If you are the kind of person who likes unlimited choices and selections, then BGC may not be the place for you. But things may be taking a turn for the better with the opening of Yakimix PRIME at Bonifacio High Street. So as a treat to my sister for finishing her review classes, we decided to take her out along with my kids to the newly opened buffet joint.

logoIt had just opened for a few days, and they are on a soft opening basis but as we tried it out, everything is already in place and a lot of people were dining when we came. Continue reading

Coco Lime: Asian Flair in Subic Bay

Coco Lime Asian Cuisine, Subic Bay

30 December 2013

Staying with my in-laws near Subic has always been a pleasurable escapade away from the noise of the city, given the vacation vibe that the area has, it’s expected that the food scene is as vibrant as the flow of tourists try new and different flavors it has to offer. CocoLime has been a staple for the locals and the tourists as well, offering a variety of Filipino and Asian inspired dishes. When we visit, we try to a come back each time as it has left a memorable impression on our palettes.


On this lazy weekday holiday afternoon, my wife and I decided to take our kids and have lunch in one of SBMA’s famous food joints. Continue reading

Conti’s Serendra: Home-cooked Tradition

Conti’s Pastry Shop and Restaurant

Serendra, Bonifacio Global City

24 July 2012

Since it opened a few years back, Conti’s has become a crowd favorite for diners at BGC. We are patrons of their excellent home-cooked cuisine due to their relative affordability and the quality of their food. When you visit, you feel like you’re eating at the house of someone familiar, perhaps a friend or a loved one. Familiarity is something that Conti’s tries to market and they sell it well.

Aracama BGC: A New Take on Filipino Cuisine

Aracama, Filipino Cuisine

The Fort Strip, BGC, Taguig

It’s another OpenRice Eats-a-Date event and we got invited again. I was really excited to see what happened to the former Embassy although I’ve never been to the said club, just for the mere fact that it was a newsmaker during its time. I often pass by the Fort Strip and noticed the said restaurant, but I’ve always been intimidated by the establishments at the Fort Strip due to financial constraints.

The sofa and the reception at the entrance evoke Filipino familiarity as if inviting the diner to take a peek and try whatever they are offering.

We were told to wait at a table at the ground floor, behind it is a wall fully covered in leafy wallpaper, which was very soothing to the eyes, the interiors were very nice. The place was very traditional but with hints of modern design. Continue reading
