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.

Coca: Thai Cantonese at SM Aura

Coca Restaurant: Thai Cantonese at SM Aura Premier

December 2013

One of the unique things about the bustling food scene at Bonifacio Global City is the wide array of tastes that cater to anyone and everyone. With the recent opening of SM Aura, an additional avenue for the palate tasting types was again populated with several new choices.

There is no question that the new SM mall caters to those who can afford to pay, and yes it really does feel a few notches above the rest. In one of our family lunches, we decided to try something new and something different. I actually chose the place on a whim, based on something I faintly remember reading online about the restaurant. It says that it was a Thai-Cantonese fusion restaurant. I like Thai food and Chinese food so perhaps both would be really good together. 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.

If any of you have gone up north to Subic, for sure you’ve tried or at least heard of Meat Plus Cafe, a local steak house popular with the locals and the tourists as well. It’s a very homey and familiar steak house that evokes a southern comfort vibe.        signTrue enough and it was only a matter of time before they would expand and join the ever growing Manila food scene. As they have already opened for quite a while, and a bit of buzz has been made; I will try to provide a glimpse of what they have to offer on my family’s second visit to the steak joint.

After a long hiatus, I will now be posting a review for a restaurant we tried one Saturday lunch. Due to the Christmas rush, our trip from Taguig to Tandang Sora took almost two hours, on our way home, with reservations whether we’ll survive the traffic or not, we decided to eat lunch first at Don Day, as we had wonderful food when we first visited a few months back.
