Tapeo The Fort Strip a la carte Offerings

Recently, I discovered Tapeo The Fort Strip a la carte offerings and more. I consider the restaurant as Bonifacio Global City’s hidden gem as the restaurant is not very visible. But they offer good food in a cozy Spanish ambiance that I love. Established by MonDay Chefs — chef-consultants Mon Urbano and Day Salonga, in February 2013, Tapeo is known for bite-sized appetizers that are usually paired with wine. I have to admit that the moment I got the invitation, I was thinking of pigging out on dishes revolving around our very own tapa, cured beef prepared in different ways. I was so wrong because I experienced Spanish dishes. I’m not complaining. In fact, I love it! I love the learning experience as I was educated that there actually is a tapas tradition in Spain which, according to the legend, can be traced back in the 13th century during the ...

Filipino Dishes with a Twist at Oriang by Cafe de Bonifacio

Oriang Super Fried Rice (215Php) - Oriang by Cafe de Bonifacio

Looking for a new place to dine out? I recommend Oriang by Cafe de Bonifacio where you’ll find Filipino dishes with a twist. Located at Fiesta Market in Taguig’s Market! Market!, the restaurant opened only last month. The team of restauranteurs led by Vic and Alfredo Wenceslao decided to put up a unique concept that still treads the path of Andres Bonifacio, naming it after the wife of the father of the Philippine Revolution – Gregoria de Jesus, also known as Aling Oriang. I love the place. It’s huge an airy. Oriang is also well-lit because of the front glass panel that allows the natural light to come in. The design is modern, yet not the “in your face” kind of thing that other restaurants would want it. The ambiance lends a welcoming vibe, not the intimidating kind. While we wait for other bloggers to arrive, we ordered some drinks. ...

Enjoy Good Food at Figaro Market! Market!

Meaty Lasagna at Figaro Market! Market!

Shoppers at Market! Market! in Taguig will definitely go hungry going through all the shops in the mall. Good thing there’s Figaro Coffee Company, conveniently located at the mall’s 4th level, near Food Choices. Figaro Market! Market! is definitely a welcome treat for everyone looking to enjoy good food. When I step in to Figaro’s space, it feels like entering a time-space warp zone. The dark wooden floors, beams and pillars exudes the warmth I usually find in their stand-alone restaurants. It’s amazing how the franchise owner maintained the Italian/European ambiance despite the kiosk setup. Of course, Italian-inspired food is what makes dining at Figaro a treat. They offer different pasta dishes and one of my favorite is Pasta ala Carlo. But this time I ordered one of the restaurant’s latest offering – Meaty Lasagna. As the name suggests, it is meaty with generous serving of ground beef in between ...

Asian Fusion at the Bonifacio Global City via the Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak

Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak at BGC

If there’s any cuisine that I love in this world, it’s Asian food. I just love the flavor, the character and the spice in every bite. I had the chance to experience a taste of Singapore and the rest of Asia at the Bonifacio Global City — Singapore Food Republic by Nasi Lemak. Despite having frequented the area, The Fort and the entirety of the BGC is such a foreign place for me. So when blogger friend Yani of Yaniconquistadora invited me to join them, I was quite hesitant because I know I will have to figure out how to get there. Then Vance of Ang Takaw Ko decided to tag along as she is also not familiar with the place. That made the challenge extra; not that I don’t want her company. I just don’t want to be primary responsible in making her late because I know I will ...

An American Tradition Experience at ClawDaddy Bonifacio High Street

Huge Prawn at ClawDaddy BHS

The first time I got to taste ClawDaddy‘s food was in 2011 at the Appetite Restaurant Festival at the ShangriLa Plaza Mall. From that point I have been longing to visit their restaurant. So on a rainy fourth of July, while the traffic is bad, I hang out with friends at ClawDaddy Bonifacio High Street. It was very timely because I got to experience an American tradition as we had the Seafood Boil in a Bag — a regular fare in the US when having picnic during holidays, especially in summer. Americans love cooking outdoors and when they do, one of the usual food served on the table aside from barbecue is a boiling pot of seafood and sausages. The mix causes a play of flavor, that’s interesting and appetizing. That’s exactly what we enjoyed. The Seafood Boil in a Bag is served in a food-grade plastic bag, opened before ...
