Yumi Japanese Restaurant at Promenade, Greenhills

Yumi is a Japanese restaurant located at the new Promenade building in Greenhills. Owned by the same passionate foodies behind Munchtown and other group of restaurants, Yumi serves Japanese dishes with main focus on the aesthetics of the food from the plate to the palate. With chef Robby Gocco on its helm, one can expect freshly prepared Japanese food which are reasonably priced.

Yumi's menu suggests that it specializes in ramen, sushi, and teppan. Yet, amidst these three well-loved Japanese dishes, there are other items on the menu that are all well worth trying out.

Some of the foodies I know have raved about Yumi way before I have tried it myself. I had a high expectation not just because I trust the judgement and the palates of these foodies but also because it is a restaurant by chef Gocco. I had a chance to visit Yumi when they launched new varieties of Chirashi on their menu. Some of my luncheon mates called the gathering "Chirashi Feast." I, on the other hand call it "An Introduction to a New Favorite Japanese Restaurant."

Eri Curry in SM Megamall

Eri Curry is a new restaurant that opened recently at Atrium of SM Megamall which specializes in Japanese curry. There are plenty of Japanese restaurants in Manila but only few carries, if not specializes in this particular dish. This fact makes Eri Curry a welcome addition to Manila restaurant landscape.

History dictates that curry originated in India. They are the culture who popularized this dish using the impressive spices that they are known for. Japan however was introduced to curry during the time when British colonized India. Since its introduction, Japan adapted curry and made their own variation that suits their palates hence, the Japanese curry was born.

Japanese adaptation of Indian curry includes reinvention of the sauce by adding fruit stock that lends sweeter taste to it in contrast to the usual spicy and spunky flair of Indian curry. Eri Curry's chef Erica, the mind behind the menu and the face behind the logo, stayed for good many years in the Land of The Rising Sun where she learned to loved Japanese curry. Equipped with her love for the said dish and the passion to create good food, she developed Japanese curry recipe fit for Filipinos, in which is now being used at Eri Curry.

Munchtown in Promenade, Greenhills: Elevating Your Cinema Snacking Experience

Friends told me that snacking inside the movie house while watching new flick will never be the same again once you tried the food at Munchtown located at the new Promenade in Greenhills. Having one of the geniuses in Manila restaurant scene. chef Robby Gocco under its helm, I could not argue. I, myself is a fan. Turning the usual movie snack into a gourmet delight is something only a passionate chef could muster to do with impeccable swag. Chef Gocco, did just that.

Munchtown menu consist primarily of food that is perfect to be eaten on the go, making it convenient for people to eat the goodies inside the movie house. Yet, whether you opt to feast on their offerings while watching movie or not, their location can accommodate good numbers of diners.

Munchtown boasts of offerings such as burgers, fries, pizza, chicken wings, nachos, and hotdog sandwich.  I cannot remember how many times have I declined invites to visit Munchtown and try their food due to my schedule. Good thing that one time I was free, my friend Richard tagged me along for some Hotdog Sandwich Feast at Munchtown. Our group feasted on different variants of gourmet hotdog sandwich that I lost count of how many variants were there. Trust me, there were too many that I was not able to try all of them, so I've only written those which I've tasted.

Bennett and Palmer The Global Gourmet is an online shopping company which aims to bring the world to the Philippines and vice versa by selling variety of gourmet products from and to different countries. They are the exclusive distributor of brands such as Hello 5 Vietnamese Premium Coffee, La Petite Epicerie Saigon (Fruit Jams and Preserves), Marous Faiseurs De Chocolat, Koala Tea Australia, and Phoenix All Natural. I have tried some of the fruit jams, coffee, and chocolate available at Bennett and Palmer but my favorite by far is Hello 5 Vietnamese Premium Coffee.

I love Vietnamese coffee. There is a coffee house in Manila that specializes in Vietnamese coffee which I frequent to but during those days when I am swamped with deadlines and getting out of the house is just impossible, I find comfort that I can make a good cup of Viet coffee on my own.

Hello 5 carries different craft blends of Vietnamese coffee namely original, organic, mondo, deluxe, and regular.

Kulinarya Kitchen at Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Makati

Truth be told, I think one of the most underrated restaurants that we have here in Manila is Kulinarya Kitchen. Their first branch located at the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, Makati have been in the business for almost a decade now serving high quality fusion of European and Asian dishes. I deem that it is not the kind of restaurant that creates noise to be noticed. Rightly so, since any restaurant that can create impressive dishes like theirs could have the confidence to have the staying power even without much fuss. After all, they wouldn't be in the business that long for nothing.

I had been to Kulinarya Kitchen several times already since I was first introduced to it. I should have published my first blog post about Kulinarya way way back but it was only recently that I discovered that the post had been sitting on my draft folder for what seemed like forever, much to my dismay. Usual blog auto-post fail, but I digress. I already updated the information here, allow me catch up.
