Here’s a little recap of 2014 with some of most enjoyable dining experiences. I was blessed to have been able to try so many new restaurants with some awesome dining companions. Hoping for an even better 2015.

Patricio’s Cevicheria28 Bayani Road, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Philippines Contact No.: (632) 998-7274/ (63917) 850-8817
A place that specializes in ceviche, kilawin and all it’s many forms. A bit off the happening center of BGC, it’s simple surroundings and decor leaves the highlight to the food.

TuanTuan Chinese Brasserie3/F, SM MegaMall Fashion Hall Edsa cor. Julia Vargas Ave.,
Ortigas, Mandaluyong City,
Metro Manila Contact No.: (02) 570-9011
The place to get your fix of authentic HK Milk Tea, Coffee or Yuanyang plus my favorite baked pork buns in Manila. Their halibut noodles soup offer plenty of combinations pared with an order of their honey pork spareribs. Service is a bit of a letdown though.

MunchtownUnit 202 Upper Level, Promenade 2 Greenhills Shopping Center San Juan, Philippines Telephone No.: (02) 565-4291
Munchtown serves elevated movie house food for people who want more than the usual popcorn and soda. Juicy burgers, freshly made french fries and some creative hotdogs. Best of all, you can have the food delivered right to your cinema seats.

St. Marc CafeUpper Ground Floor, SM Megamall Fashion Hall Edsa cor. Julia Vargas Ave.,
Ortigas, Mandaluyong City,
Metro Manila Contact No.: (632) 531-8062
St. Marc Cafe is a popular pastry and coffee shop known for their ChocoCro. They serve a lot of dessert variations using their pastries as well as Nissei soft serve ice cream. I recommend the Little Fuji and of course the original and limited time ChocoCro variants.
Shang Palace Weekend Buffet2/F Makati Shangri-la Hotel Manila, Ayala Ave., cor Makati Ave., Makati City, Philippines Telephone Number: (632) 813-8888
Shang Palace brings back dimsum like the old days with their special steam carts roving around the restaurant transporting baskets of treats. There are over 40 different dimsum choices plus live stations for congee and radish cake all for only P788++, no need to wait eons in line for cramped seating and mediocre dimsum.

Phat Pho ManilaSerendra Plaza, McKinley Parkway Fort Bonifacio Global City Taguig, Philippines Telephone No.: (632) 804-1646
The Moment Group brings Phat Pho to Manila serving their tasting Vietnamese fare. The Pho might be the default option but the Com Chien (fried rice) is a wonderful surprise. I’m glad they replaced their bar stools with more comfortable seating and the crowd seems to agree.
