    Kaiseki: Prime Japanese Resto in Fort Strip (now closed)

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 21, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    unfortunately, this place closed down in 2011.

    Kaiseki is An Upscale Japanese Restaurant owned by enterpreneur Josephine Wu. kaiseki in Nihonggo meaning comes from the story that said Buddhist priests in strict Zen training used to keep a hot stone (seki) in their kimono pocket (kai) in order to make their fasting more bearable, it also means a graceful and artistic Seasonal Cuisine.

    It is one of the Mainstays in the Fort Strip Area in Fort Bonifacio.

    Opens Daily from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm, 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm

    Favorite Dish: their specialty is the crazy maki, a maki topped with shredded imitation crabs or surimi and it costs 150 pesos and order (see my picture). Their Beef Sukiyaki is to die for and it costs 450 pesos and is good for 3 people! the shrimp tempura is 380 pesos and another favorite of mine is the Gindara (made from codfish) which costs 450 pesos an order. for the dessert, i would recommend the green tea sorbet and the lemon sorbet at 130 pesos are not that sweet but very flavorful!

    Mamou's A Home Kitchen: home cooked plus excellent steak!

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 21, 2014

    good ole home cooking menu with an extra, very juicy and succulent steaks that imitates the style of the icon Peter Luger Steakhouse in Brooklyn, just as tasty.

    Mamou's in not really a steakhouse in the Strictest Sense since it is classified as a Restaurant but the Restaurant became famous for foodies here in the Serendra area of Taguig City due to their steaks since they are almost just as good and as sinful as the World Famous Peter Luger Steakhouse of Brooklyn (see my New York Pages). Steakhouses in the philippines usually needs no reservations since there are ample seats available for walk in patrons but Mamou's Bucks this trend as you must call them in advance for reservations and even the al fresco dining outside the area is packed full of people. Mamou's started in the Serendra Area of Taguig in 2007 and became a byword in the area especially for USDA 28 day Dry Aged Steaks and the Owner (Malou Fores, affectionately known as Mamou, is a frequent diner of Peter Luger in New York and she started this idea of introducing the dry-aged steak goodness of the Famed Peter Steakhouse in the Philippines and the rest is history). Only Mamou's, Cru Steakhouse in Marriott Hotel Manila and Fireplace Grill in Hyatt Manila serves dry aged steaks in Metro Manila), They have to a bigger branch at the Powerplant Mall area of Makati.

    Hours

    Mon - Fri: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm
    Sat: 11:00 am - 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm
    Sun: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm

    Favorite Dish: the 30 ounce USDA Prime Boned In Sizzling Rib Eye Steak!

    again, even though the menu is quite extensive since the restaurant is not really a steakhouse, most patrons go for the steaks. The even have live Maine Lobsters flown from the United States and costs 3,300 pesos for a small (1 to 1 3/4 pound lobster) or 3,800 pesos for a larger ( 1 3/4 to 2 1/2 pounds). they also have the Mamou's Bacon steak which is similar in taste and texture to the famous canadian bacon of Peter Luger at 450 pesos an order. The piece de resistance is their USDA Prime 28 day Dry Aged Porterhouse and Boned in Rib Eye Steak which is grilled and served on a large and inclined platter full of the cooked juices of the oh so succulent meat (again is served like in Peter Luger) and the best thing is they even have the pater luger sauce available for you is you want to sprinkle the steaks with it. the cost of the 34 ounce Porter House and Boned in Rib Eye is 4,000 pesos inclusive of two sides. They also have other nice selections beside the steaks.

    Trattoria Poggio Antico, Tuscany, McKinley Hill: Where great food & great art can be found

    by nixca316 Updated Aug 12, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness



    Someone who is very familiar with Italy would surely be at home here. A trattoria is somewhat more informal than a ristorante, but the food, usually heirloom recipes, are not of lesser quality. You can relax with family and friends. Enjoy good food, wine and coffee. They also have good entertainment in the evening. Just visit their Facebook page for updates.

    The owner, Mr. Roland Lorilla, is a Filipino, but somehow, he has captured the spirit of a true trattoria. He has traveled all over the world, yes, including Italy, to study about their food and culture.

    Without sacrificing the true Italian flavor of Tuscany, you can also tell the service crew if you have allergies and they would gladly customize your order. I have seen many posts of different restaurants where they hate customizing food for clients(meaning, they'd rather lose you as client than customize your food) and I'm glad that this is not one of those places.

    If it weren't for the gig of our friend Dr. Angelito "Ace" S. Agcoili that night, we wouldn't have been able to have this great experience.



    Approximately, 2 people would spend a little more than US$20.00, but it really would depend on what you would order. Four people could split a whole pizza and two people could split the pasta order. It also depends on your appetite.

    Mode of payment: Cash, Visa, Mastercard and American Express

    Favorite Dish:

    Their food was created with some of the finest ingredients. SO FAR, these are what we tried:

    Pasta Vongole
    This is one of the dishes frequently ordered at this place. Observing other people who ate this makes one realize that it brings happiness...probably, if a person is in dire straits, momentarily, all of his or her cares would simply fly away.


    Pasta Bolognese
    Since this is the "easiest" type of pasta dish to make, I was thinking it would taste just like an ordinary type of red meat sauce. I was wrong. The Barilla pasta smelled wonderful. I don't know if they added lemons to it or not, but it was a bit citrus like in aroma and taste. The meat sauce tasted grace and I love the feeling I had after finishing my share.

    1/2 Verdure and 1/2 Margarita Pizza
    This brick oven thin crust pizza tastes wonderful. Adding the sauce and other ingredients transports you to cloud nine. Sheer delight in every bite. ;-)

    Good wine selections

    Tiramisu
    You would definitely not just pick this up, but you would also enjoy every bite. The ingredients married well and with every bite you would enjoy the perfect combination of espresso and mascarpone (plus all those other great ingredients). It goes well with wine or black coffee. Molto delizioso!

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

    by nixca316 Updated Nov 5, 2013

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    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.

    Paul Maison De Qualite Fondee: Luxe French Boulangerie

    by machomikemd Written Nov 4, 2013

    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.

    Mochi Sweets: Large Sized Luxe Japanese Rice Cake Desserts

    by machomikemd Written Nov 4, 2013

    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


    Mochi Sweets has successfully turned mochi, the traditional Japanese cake, into luxury desserts that has become popular across Asia. From its first sweet shop which opened in Shanghai in 2007, Mochi Sweets now has more than 250 stores and kiosks in China, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam. 

    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


    ✮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.



    Sushi King
    2nd Level, MarketMarket
    Bonifacio Global City,
    Taguig

    Business hours: 10am to 9pm
    Accepts major credit cards



    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.
