LET’S EAT: 2015 Best Restaurants in Manila & TV Show premieres tonight! @spankyenriquez @stephaniezubiri @cheryltiu

Let's Eat 1


LET’S EAT is a food lifestyle magazine that chronicles and recommends the best restaurants in Metro Manila, old and new published by The Philippine STAR every last Sunday of the month. 

Mikey Belmonte, son of Miguel Belmonte president and CEO of The Philippine Star, is the publisher, Don Jaucian as the editor, Gabby Cantero as the photographer and my good friend Spanky Enriquez as the writer.

It’s now a 30-minute dining TV Show with hosts Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, restaurateur and food columnist, and Spanky Enriquez, PBA sportscaster before becoming a marketing and social media consultant for the best restaurants in the country. STAR Lifestyle columnists and culinary experts, Claude Tayag, and Cheryl Tiu, will also serve as segment hosts for Let’s Eat TV.

Here’s what we think of their issue on The Best Restaurants in Manila 2015:

OAP: Everyone would agree that the best foodie neighborhood is now Burgos in Brgy Poblacion in Makati or some would divide it into two sections: NOMA or North of Makati Avenue or SOMA or South of Makati Avenue.

About Let’s Eat TV


The fantastic duo of Stephanie & Spanky, cheerfully gregarious and highly opinionated, promise to deliver a not an ordinary 30-minute dining show, but will deeper dip into what makes a restaurant successful, what secrets their chefs can share, and what makes their dishes special.

It’ll be a smart and witty exploration of all things appetizing. The hosts have agreed to disagree, and their He Said, She Said repartee ought to make for very spicy TV.   


Let’s Eat TV premieres on September 30, 2015, at 8 p.m. on The Lifestyle Network. Regular episodes will air every Wednesday, 8 p.m., with replays every Thursday, 11:30 a.m.

Congratulations to the Let’s Eat Team!
