Book For Foodies: Eat Out Now! 115 Manila Restaurants We Love
I have to say that for someone like me who has a thing for restaurant book guides, launching of such books late last year was quite exciting. Northern Eats and Southern Eats by Anton Diaz of the famous blog Our Awesome Planet was released last year by Hinge Inquirer Publishing. Also last year, Alicia Sy, lifestyle editor of Town & Country Philippines and food columnist of Spot.ph released 'Eat Out Now! 115 Manila Restaurants We Love' through Summit Media Publishing.
Some of our country's respected food enthusiasts tagged as panelists joined Sy in dishing out 115 restaurants in Manila featured in the book. They are Cyrene dela Rosa (Interaksyon.com's Chowbuzz), Erwann Heussaff (The Fat Kid Inside), JJ Yulo (Pinoy Eats World), Sanjeeb Gopaldas (Table for Three, Please), Joel Binamira (Market Manila), and Noel Ermitano (Eyeonwine).
This handy restaurant guide is packed with information about restaurants they deem worth visiting especially by foodies like us. Details such as short reviews, restaurant information, recommended dishes, tips on food pairings, price point, and restaurants' x-factor are all included.
It also boasts of beautiful food photography of dishes from the featured restaurants spread through the pages of the book. Cute map sketches of the featured cities are also included that can serve as a guide. Essays from the panelists regarding different food topics are equally noteworthy if not helpful.
With the numbers of restaurants sprouting all over the metro, we know that not all of them are worth our hard earned money and effort. That is why a restaurant guide like Eat Out Now is definitely a must have considering it was a product of extensive research of food experts most of us look up to.
Eat Out Now! 115 Manila Restaurants We Love is available in all leading bookstores and news stands for only Php250.
