It started as a boulangerie in partnership with Mickey’s Delicatessen along Jupiter Street. Now, it has transformed into a French Cafe, with authentic French pastries and baked products, and a European cafe ambiance.

I love their signature teas from Mariage Frères in Paris.

We had the pleasure of dining with Johnlu recently and coming up with recommendations on having an awesome dining or tea time experience at Lartizan…

OSAKA OHSHO is a Japanese chain established in 1969. They have branches in Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Korea and now in the Philippines, courtesy of the Relish-Group, known for bringing in the Wee Nam Kee franchise to Manila.

I like how the Manila restaurant scene is shifting towards specializing. Most restaurants now are known for that one dish or a certain specialty cuisine. 

So how does the #1 Gyoza in the World taste like?  Here’s our Osaka Ohsho experience…

Kyochon Manila (21 of 35).jpg
KYOCHON, which started the double-fried chicken craze in South Korea in 1991, is finally in the Philippines! But Filipinos are not that familiar with the brand despite its #1 double-fried chicken status in Korea. 

(For reference, BonChon was founded in 2002 but they are more popular because they were first to enter New York in 2007, while KyoChon entered Manhattan only in 2010. Similarly, BonChon had a head start in Manila in 2010.)

The double-fried chicken technique was invented to remove the fatty oils from the chicken and still make the skin crunchy and flavorful. KyoChon takes pride in the fact that their chicken has no glacial acetic acid, sodium saccharine, and MSG. They also use canola oil with zero transfat to fry their chicken. 🙂

One thought on “BEST OF MANILA: 40 Most Awesome NEW Restaurants in Manila 2014! (Top 31-40)

  1. In this list, I had only tried The Girl + The Bull about 2 weeks ago. We ordered the wild arugula, roasted pork, the burger, the chicken, bibimbap and the twix. It was the bibimbap which I loved most.
    They had just renovated. They dont serve rice except for the bibimbap. It’s just a little bit pricey. We had a reservation of 630pm. Since the place is small, once other guests arrived…… will have no choice but to live.
