NEW RESTO ALERT: Saigosan in Uptown Mall

Konnichiwa Saigosan!

A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast. Inspired by animes, mangas, and JPop culture, Saigosan even has a train wherein you can hop from Kyoto to Osaka without a JR Pass! 

My top picks from the menu are:

Tori Katsu Sando. Meaty chunks of savory chicken sandwich with special sauce, with fries and onions sides. Very filling, good for sharing. 

Buta Kakuni Ramen. Comforting broth with ramen noodles, braised pork belly, and hanjuku tamago. Itadakimasu! 

Grilled Yakiniku Don with Egg. A popular choice. Grilled beef has that particular umami that everyone can't seem to resist. I suggest pairing this with Saigosan's specially crafted Shandys or Highballs. 

Spicy Shake. Another popular choice because it's a conversation piece, best paired with Saigosan's Shandy or Highball drinks. 

Miso Butter Lobster. This is the 'piece de resistance!' Succulent lobster, rich in umami that's enhanced by creamy miso butter sauce. Perfect of celebrations or even if you're just craving for that perfect meal. 

Drinks. There's Saigosan House Blend, Hibiscus, Yuzu, and a whole lot more.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hain in Boracay

Aside from being one of the top beaches of the world, Boracay is also known for its diverse food and restaurant choices. And on that note, I'm happy to share that we discovered a newly opened restaurant called- Hain. 

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
