    Henry's Place by Good Earth: Where East really meets west

    by nixca316 Updated Nov 5, 2013

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images


    HENRY'S PLACE

    Burgos Circle, Forbes Town Center
    The Fort, Taguig City
    Metro Manila, Philippines
    Open Daily: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.





    Hong Kong Chef Henry Cheung, a kind looking gentleman, owns this place.

    My "Big sister", Joscephine Gomez, introduced me to this fabulous place.

    There is a welcoming atmosphere and they even serve you with a smile.

    I was happy to know that the menu was similar with the Good Earth Menu, because I am quite familiar with it. I love the food!

    Oh, and I could even recommend this to lovers as a place for dating. :)

    People with disabilities are treated with respect here (and all Good Earth Tea Houses).

    Favorite Dish:
    The vegetarian version of Lily on the pond (My big sister is right in calling it Lotus on a pond because it looks more like a lotus than a lily).

    Lily on the pond is usually made with its mix of vegetables and prawns in a spicy curry and white coconut cream sauces.

    They replaced the shrimp with taro and it's very, very...I think ambrosial is the closest description I can think of.

    Since Koreans are the number one tourists group going into the philippines and there are now many mini korea towns sprouting around parts of the country and the popularity of the Hallyu (korean wave) and Korean Pop around South East Asia, enterprising Filipinos copied the Korean Barbecue Buffet and meat all you can style of buffet from South Korea and their first branch is here at the Fort Strip of Bonifacio Global City.

    and while you are eating, there are live performance at the stage by faux k-pop artist, singing korean songs.

    refillable drinks such as sodas and ice teas are an additional 80 pesos on top of the buffet price.

    opens: 11:00 am to 11:00 pm everyday

    Favorite Dish: : what else but the assorted korean grilled meat dishes like the samgyeopsal, the dak galbi, the beef and pork bulgogi, bibimbap, tteok and the assorted kimchi side dishes.

    Paul Maison De Qualite Fondee: Luxe French Boulangerie

    by machomikemd Written Nov 4, 2013
    the soft opening of paul
    4 more images

    When I was at the SM Aura, I have seen the soft opening of the Luxe French Boulangerie Brand, Paul. It was a soft opening and they only opened a small portion of the restaurant and small bakery as a teaser. It will be fully opened by the end of the year, an employee chimed. Paul Boulangerie is a favorite in Europe and the Middle East and they have many branches there as are themd as the luxe starbucks, but it offers more than starbucks as it has many freshly baked cakes and sweets, besides the addicting french macaroons and other french main courses that you can order.

    according to their website:

    PAUL, founded in 1889, offers a selection of country-style and fancy bread, viennoiserie (croissants, etc.) pastries, cakes and desserts, snacks and sandwiches (made to order) to more than 5 million customers every month.

    The PAUL tea-rooms offer a French style of snack lunch: savory and sweet pastries, a selection of French pancakes, simple dishes and a selection of salads, etc. All prepared on the premises. The perfect stop for a lunchtime break.

    All of the products offered by PAUL are prepared to the same high standards which have made French bread famous the world over. What is the secret ingredient of PAUL’s success? A respect for tradition.

    Favorite Dish: at I was there,it was just a soft opening, they only offer some freshly baked french pastries like the baguette and farmer's bread and some croissants and hot and cold coffee drinks and fruit juices.

    eventually, they will have the french baked goodies like the macaroons, cheese cakes, french crepes and assorted french soups and sandwiches.

    the regular cup of hot coffee is 140 pesos and a large french baguette bread at 150 pesos.

    4 more images

    one of the evidences that filipinos now have an international palate is that even niche asian sweets and dessert shops are now making a splash in the capital city of Metro Manila and the Hongkong Company Maker of the favorite Japenese Rice Cake, the mochi, is now present in the philippines since 2012 and with more than 5 branches and counting. Their version of the japanese mochi is bigger and more luxurious and the mochi are supersized and made into big round balls and with various fillings put inside (there are many varieties like green tea, mango, taro, chocolate, curry, cherry, strawberry, latte and more) instead of the regular pounded mung beans of the original mochi.

    the branch I tried is located at the New Sm Mall in Taguig, SM Aura.

    opens: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm everyday

    according to their website:

    Mochi Sweets

    In September 2012, the first Mochi Sweets store was opened in the Philippines. Three more stores will be opened before the end of 2012.

    Mochi Sweets is committed to providing the best quality mochi dessert for everyday enjoyment. It offers a wide array of flavors, from classic favorites to special concoctions.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mochi


    Mochi is a well-loved Japanese rice cake made from glutinous rice flour pounded into shape. It is originally filled with toppings such as red bean or cream. Mochi is eaten all-year round but is also the traditional food during Japanese New Year.

    Mochi Sweets has taken mochi further by creating small balls of luxurious and flavorful cream (frozen cream or mousse) and wrapping it in chewy mochi skin with just the right thickness, moistness and stickiness.

    Favorite Dish: what else but the bigger and more luxurious mochi balls which are larger and rounder than the traditional japanese mochi. average price of a mochi ball is about 60 pesos for a single mochi ball and depends on the filling inside, can go up to 80 pesos a mochi ball.

    half dozen mochi balls will cost 360 to 400 pesos.

    Sushi King Market Market: Affordable Delicious Japanese Food

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 26, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ika Fry
    4 more images


    ✮The food is clean and the servers are pleasant. It has a friendly atmosphere, but to me, it looks more of a student canteen.

    Anyways, the food tastes good and I was glad that their Ika Fry (Fried Squid/Calamari) did not harden up when it cooled down.

    ✮The place is not a five star restaurant, but a casual dining place. It's just a small kiosk selling tasty Korean and Japanese food that is easy on the pocket.

    ✮Our favorite server is John because he was so kind to RJ (my autistic savant brother), of course, when he was alive.

    Tip: If you love using chopsticks, but hate the wooden disposable ones, bring your own

    Favorite Dish:
    We have yet to have favorites, but I must say, if you love spicy food, try the Osaka Maki. It's so yummy!

    The ramen's good, but I don't think it's what you call authentic, so if it's authentic you want, this is not the place to be.

    I still recommend this place to the budget conscious folks. You can enjoy good food at a very affordable price.

    This place looks, well, maybe not ordinary because it looks a little beyond that, but the first time I visited it, I told myself, "This is it? What's the big fuss?"

    People have been raving about this place and I have been mighty curious. I almost became disappointed, but about a minute later, I started to find out why.

    The smell of the place is wonderful.

    Freshly baked goodies and the freshly brewed coffee filled the place.

    The welcoming smile of the service crew and the people enjoying their food food also added to my curiosity.

    When we got the menu, again, my spirits were dampened, but when the food was served, I felt I was in heaven.

    The presentation and taste? Superb!

    Would I recommend it to my friends?

    That's what I am doing right now. I hope that my other friends and family could visit this place and have the time of their life.

    Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen: The Ramen with the perfect bite etc.

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 24, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images



    Long introduction...you can skip this is you wish

    Blame it on our nannies. When my "angels" (my two special brothers who are now in heaven) would cry at night, they would feed them ramen to make them stop (not knowing that they should have given them gluten free noodles). Since they would make a whole pot, they would extend the graces to us.

    Yes, the ramen they cooked were instant kind, still, it made us appreciate Japanese noodles or any kind of noodles for that matter.

    My friends who would dine with us would say we make spaghetti(the authentic Italian kind) seem ordinary because we have it almost all the time. When we were small, we were never out of food. When I battled with my weight, of course I would deny that I love food, but now, I admit it. I'm really a foodie.

    I learned to cook around three or four. Among my MANY ambitions was to work in a fancy restaurant in Switzerland or France, but after studying how to cook formally, I knew in my heart that I am not cut out to be Chef because, even if I could follow instructions to the letter, my knife skills were terrible and I get stressed when I'm working with other people. OK, I'm one of those who would rather do it all alone, with assistants doing only the food preparation or the deep frying(I hate doing this myself).

    Anyways, I am super duper digressing already.

    Let's go back to eating ramen. ヽ(•‿•)ノ

    I love ramen. My doctor prohibited me eating the nstant kind so I'm happy that they serve good authentic ones here in the Philippines too. There are places that have disappointed me, but I'm glad that there are those places that send me to cloud 9.

    IKKORYU FUKUOKA RAMEN, 2nd Floor SM AURA PREMIER

    There's a very welcoming feeling when you enter this place. Normally, I would prefer the soft いらっしゃいませ (irasshaimase)---like in KIMPURA---than the loud one, The servers "here" do the loud version, but it's not as overpowering as one those buffet places somewhere out there.

    According to the Asia Tatler Dining article with no byline, Japanese contemporary artist Sensyu Yasuko, designed the place to give it a warm feeling.

    The people responsible for bringing this awesome place in town is the magic team(according to the FB page): Chef Ueda Hidehito, CEO of Y.S. Food, Masanori Ogata, and Public Relations Director to Philippines from Japan, Kenji Komuro.

    To the three of you...I mean four(including the designer), the staff and the crew, おめでとうございます (Congratulations!).





    They have a Ramen Bar and function rooms that can serve 12 to 40 people. You can bring your family and friends to enjoy the different food and drinks.

    Mode of payment:
    Cash and Major Credit Cards

    The Mango Tree: Thai Cuisine At Its Best

    Green Beef Curry
    4 more images

    There are three Thai Restaurants that are very, very dear to my heart:

    People's Palace (VT "review"),
    JP's Thai Cuisine(VT Review), and Benjarong Royal Thai Restaurant in Dusit Thani(I have yet to write a review. There are lots of restos that I've been to and loved that I have written about yet, fyi).

    This one is now my fourth favorite Thai Restaurant.

    The interior decoration is stupendous and you would admire the cleanliness. The staff is well trained and we were served very, very well with a smile.

    The food is very, very delicious. From the appetizers to the desserts you would be transported to cloud nine.

    They also have a wide array of some of the best wines in town and have a long list of mixed drinks you can enjoy.

    Their Thai Iced Tea is divine. Mom and dad enjoyed theirs with lemon and I enjoyed mine with milk. Since the milk tea craze, I don't think I'm lactose intolerant anymore and I super duper love Mango Tree's Thai Iced Tea.



    Favorite Dish:
    1. Yum Pla Duk Foo(Crispy catfish flakes with mango salad)Crunchy and juicy at the same time
    2. Yum Mamuang (Green mango salad with peanuts and grated coconut)-I love the bite of the grated coconut...the blend of the sweetness and the acridity
    3. Tod Mun Pla Spicy fish cakes---YUMMY
    4. Tow Hoo Phad Med Ma-MaungStir-fried tofu with cashew nuts, capsicum and onion
    5. Tow Hoo Song KruengSautéed tofu with mushrooms and vegetables in light soy sauce--DELIGHTFUL
    6. Phad Thai JayThai stir-fried rice noodles with mixed vegetables and tofu(Vegetarian delight!)
    7. Khao Pad Kai Vegetable Friend Rice with Egg (They have big servings so just order the smaller one if you're just 2 or 3)

    Plus the desserts!





    a-ròi= Delicious

    dii, wí-sèt=Wonderful

    Khawp khun kha=Thank you (well, I'm a woman...if you're a guy you say,"Khawp khun khrap")

    Khawp khun makh= Thank you very much!

    wah-dee=Casual between friends, "Hello!" Formal greeting is Sawadee :)
