    CHATIME: REFRESHING DRINKS and PEOPLE WATCHING

    by davidjo Written Apr 4, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    You will find Chatime in the Landmark, Makati just near the exit towards Glorietta Mall. They have a selection of teas, juices, coffees, ice creams and many more. There are a few tables in a busy section of the mall where you can sit and watch the people as they walk from one section to the other. I had some type of lemon yoghurt drink which tasted good, but too much ice. There are several branches of Chatime in several malls and more branches are due to open up soon.
    Would i buy another drink there? Possibly!!

    Cafe Ti-Amo is located in Greenbelt 5 and the ice cream here is out of this world, and although it may be considered expensive if you are a local it is actually very reasonably priced. Besides ice cream there are a good selection of waffles, coffees and hot chocolate. See the menu below should you be interested in visiting this wonderful cafe.

    TGI Friday's food and beverage may be more expensive than average, but almost everything is good to share, so there is still value for money.

    There is always a good feeling whenever one goes inside a TGI Friday's branch. Whether you're with your family or friends, you would surely have fun with the good service and great food.

    Restaurants by Chef Florabel

    Every restaurant at the back of the Greenbelt Chapel could be considered world class and FELIX is one of them.

    The place is owned by Celebrity Chef Florabel, the magnanimous Ben Chan, and the gorgeous foodie couple, Richard and Lucy Gomez.

    I love the feel of the place. It's the kind of place where people ask their respective partners if they would want to marry them or at the very least, ask if they could exclusively date or something.

    Yes. It does have that wonderful romantic air.

    The service is good and the food is great. It is very obvious that that the research and development team worked doubly hard, or four times even.

    As I've mentioned, it's just at the back of the chapel, so it's hard to miss.

    It's near all the great restaurants in GB5, but I assure you that like the others, they are worth giving a try.

    Tonkatsu by Terazawa: Japanese Donburi Chain

    by machomikemd Written Nov 6, 2013
    welcome
    4 more images

    Not only is there a ramen craze in the Philippines at present but also a Japanese Donburi Craze (donburi means Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are served in oversized rice bowls also called donburi) and particularly the Tonkatsu, which is the Japanese Breaded Pork Cutlet and the Katsudon, which is the Tonkatsu with shoyu sauce. Tonkatsu and Donbouri eateries are sprouting all over the Capital Region and one of the pioneers of this craze is the Japanese Tonkatsu Chain recently imported to the Philippines called "Tonkatsu by Terrazawa" which was started by a Japanese Chef in Japan.

    Opens: 11:00 am to 11:00 pm everyday

    according to their facebook page:

    TONKATSU By Terazawa is a Japanese restaurant inspired by the Owner and Chef Akinori Terazawa from Nagoya, Japan. It prides itself on its house specialty Kurobuta Tonkatsu (from Pure Berkshire black pork) and other Katsu dishes namely – Rosu Katsu (Deep Fried Pork Loin), Hire Katsu (Deep Fried Pork Fillet), Nagoya Meshi (Pork Katsu with Miso Sauce Nagoya-style), Deep fried Oysters, and Ebifurai (Jumbo Prawn Katsu). It also offers unlimited servings of Japanese rice, cabbage and tonjiru miso soup.

    "The tenderness and good quality of our pork are a result of the natural way of ageing meat and the use of “nama panko” or fresh bread crumbs." - Chef Terazawa

    Favorite Dish: their have two kinds of tonkatsu, the regular pork tonkatsu which cost 410 pesos an order and includes their iconic tonkatsu sauce and japanese rice and miso soup and the kurobota tonkatsu (berkshire pork), which is the wagyu of pork and cost 560 pesos an order and also with rice and miso soup. they also have other donburi meals like katsudon (380 pesos) , oyakudon, tendon, butadon and other typical japanese dishes like tenpura.

    Italianni's: Italian-American Cuisine and More

    by machomikemd Written Nov 6, 2013

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    Italian Cuisine is easily the most popular cuisine in the world as everbody has their version of the iconic italian classics like the spaghetti, pasta, pizza and calzone. Italianni's is an international Restaurant Franchise that started in 1991 as a spin off restaurant from the Carson Group, who introduced TGI Friday's and this international Chain is now found aside from the United States, in Mexico and Guatamela. The Italianis chain serves Classic Italian American Comfort Food (Italian American food uses more sauces and meat than the original Italian Cuisine) and are into large servings for sharing. this branch is located at the greenbelt 2 area of Makati City.

    they have more than 16 restaurants around the Philippines.

    opens: 10:00 am to 12:00 midnight everyday

    according to their website:

    At Italianni's, we believe in making our guests feel like they're in a real family-owned restaurant

    American-Italian cuisine, coupled with its unique shared style dining concept as essayed by its slogan 'Amore di Merrier', made Italianni's an instant hit among Filipinos.

    We brought the Italian family art of eating for everyone to enjoy. An Italian passion evident in every item on our menu, authentically prepared with the finest ingredients and built on a wide selection of American-Italian flavors.

    Every meal starts with a complimentary home-baked Tuscan and Foccacia bread served with olive oil and aged vinegar.

    Favorite Dish: besides the freshly baked foccacia bread and Tuscan farmer's bread from their ovens and dipped into olive oil with balsamic vinegar, the assorted thin crust pizza's like the quattro carne all meat pizza at 600 pesos an order and the seafood cioppino at 650 pesos an order. I also like their 12 ounce USDA Choice Rib Eye Steaks at 1,800 pesos an order.

    Peoples Palace won as Peoples Choice in 2010's Manila's Best Kept Restaurants. =)


    We've tried almost all the restaurants in the Greenbelt area, but for some reason we missed this place.

    Hmmm. That's not right. We did not miss it at all, but maybe, we just didn't feel like going in.

    We were able to eat at that area before when it was still the Global Cafe, but when it "transformed" into People's Palace, we never have gotten the chance.

    I'm very happy that we gave in to RJ's whim last October 5(2010) and we've been back several times already.

    We are always greeted by Krystal Padua, the Assistant Manager, with a smile and are served with gusto by the dining crew.

    Everything we tried from the appetizers, to the main dish, to the drinks, up to the desserts, was sheer delight.

    Even now that RJ has joined our creator, this restaurant will remain as one of our favorites. Dad says that it's WORTH IT!

    (major credit cards are accepted)

    Business Hours
    M, T, W, Th, F: 6:00pm - 11:00pm
    M, T, W, Th, F: 11:00am - 2:00pm
    Saturday and Sunday: 11:00am - 12:00midnight

    People's Palace is owned by Colin Mackay, a Scottish Chef

    Favorite Dish: What we tried so far:

    Chicken Wrapped in Pandan Leaves

    Crispy Fried Squid (Calamares)

    Fish Patties

    Son-in-law's eggs

    Stir Fry Mussels

    Kapi Fried Rice (we did not know this has shrimp paste, so we had to suffer the consequences later...but we had fun eating it because it is soooo delicious....thank God for antihistamines)

    Panaeng Curry of Beef

    Stir fried Chicken with Holy Basil

    Chicken Salad (Larp Gai)

    Thai Iced Tea

    Crispy Banana Coconut Ice Cream and Toasted Coconut

    Tod Mun Pla (Fish Cakes)

    Spicy Squid Salad

    People's Palace Chocolate Cake etc.



    We love everything so far!
