    Geisha Modern Japanese Cuisine: Modern Japanese Cuisine (2)

    by machomikemd Written Jul 17, 2012

    Part two of my Geisha Restaurant tips with more pictures.

    The Geisha Modern Japanese Restaurant is a new kid on the block at the Bonifacio High Street Central West Superblock. It is actually owned by an Indian National who also owns the Red Kinmono Chain with branches at the Greenbelt 3 and Fort Strip and it offers japanese cuisine with a twist (having many vegetarian dishes in the menu plus other fusion japanese foods. Theu have a british and a filipino chef who reinterprets the japanese dishes. This is an upscale japanese resturant. They have assorted hot and cold sake wines to compliment the dishes (but I don't usually take sake and a meal). Among their best sellers where is the A5 Kobe Beef Teriyaki Steak (Kobe beef is Japanese wagyu beef, wagyu is a generic term for japanese style beef ok! grading of foreign wagyu is by Grades 1 to 12 while grading of Japanese Kobe Beef is from A1 to A5). Soft Crab Sushi, Sea Bass Gindara, Kurobota Pork Gyozas and more.

    opens: 11:00 am to 12:00 am everyday

    Favorite Dish: being a steak man, I ordered the A5 Kobe Beef at just 150 grams at 1,800 pesos an order. The Spider Maki (soft shelled crab) costs 450 pesos, the california maki costs 380 pesos, the sea bass gindara steak at 895 pesos. they also have some set donburi meals like the unagi don at 495 pesos an order and katsudon at 350 pesos an order.

    by Sonja- Serendra Piazza: Designer Cupcakes

    by nixca316 Updated Jul 3, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sonja(Sohn-jah not the Russian pronunciation) Ocampo is now a household name. There are lots of people who go to the Serendra Piazza just to purchase her beautiful and delicious cupcakes.

    She is an expert in cupcake making because she worked at the famous New York Magnolia Bakery known for fabulous cupcakes and other baked goodies. Yet, she did not bring a Magnolia Bakery clone here, instead she created her own brand.

    She researched about cupcakes and her own creations are what we enjoy now. Ergo, Cupcakes by Sonja is definitely NOT a misnomer.

    Some of her creations are too cute to eat, but you just have to dig your teeth into them, because you will regret it more if you don't try them.

    She also makes wedding and party cakes.

    info@cupcakesbysonja.com for general inquiries
    orders@cupcakesbysonja.com for orders

    Bakery Hours:

    Sunday to Thursday 10am to midnight
    Friday to Saturday 10am to 1am the following day

    They are open everyday except Good Friday

    Major Credit Cards are accepted

    Favorite Dish: I love the nutty cupcakes/pies and the ones with berries especially Down Home Blueberry Buckle.

    I also love the Valrhona Milk-Choco Hazel Tart...it's oh sooo good.

    She can customize cakes and cupcakes for you, your family, your friends, your colleagues, and others.

    Mogu at the Serendra Piazza: More eclectic than Japanese

    by nixca316 Updated Jul 3, 2012

    Mogu(bite) Japanese Shinsen(fresh) Bar and Grill is very cosmopolitan. The interiors are nice and is very spacious inside, and the al fresco section where you can people watch and enjoy your grilled food better, blends with the rest of the Piazza. It has a romantic ambiance, but you can also bring your friends and family here.

    Even if they do serve Japanese dishes and are made or directed by a Japanese Chef(Chef Seiji), i think their appeal is more of the Eclectic/International type, than Japanese/Sushi.

    The service is great and food tastes wonderful. They are also very pleasing to the eyes.

    They only use fresh produce, fish, and meat products and every bite is pleasing.

    mogu.serendra@gmail.com

    Major credit cards are accepted

    Operating Hours
    Sun-Thu
    11:00 am - 9:00 pm
    Fri-Sat
    11:00 am - 11:00 pm

    Mogu is owned by Bingbing Lopez Santos who also owns Don Eduardo's Trattoria and another Japanese restaurant named Sousaku, which literally means creation. Both restaurants are at Salcedo Village in Makati. They also owned AmoRoma in Alabang, Mezzaluna(when Mezzaluna closed, Mogu took over the location) in Serendra, and Bing-Bing's in Salcedo. Now, Amo Roma is in Tagaytay City.

    Favorite Dish: Their ramen has the perfect bite(true to the name of Mogu); Their international selections or fusion meals shouldn't be missed: The mezzaluna pizzas, the foie gras, the oysters, sea urchin shooters; Their wagyu steak is also competitive(but of course, I favor Melo's).

    Their desserts are also very, very yummy.

    Sigh.

    I have to go back soon before visiting Chez Karine again.

    Agave Mexican Cantina: Craving for Mexican Cuisine?

    by cyndymc Written Jan 16, 2011

    Agave Mexican Cantina is a favorite watering hole for Yuppies who love margarita, but it has become a popular destination for families who love Mexican food. There are tables and chairs outside the airconditioned room for smokers, just across is the bar. The airconditioned room has a loft for those who want more privacy. The place is cozy. As expected of Mexican motif, bright colors dominate the room decor and furnishings.

    The only downside I noticed is the lack of accessibility ramp for those with wheelchair, and for baby strollers. My daughter had a hard time bringing my grandson's stroller inside the airconditioned room

    Favorite Dish: I liked all the foods we tried, but my favorites are the Agave Taco Salad (Grande size=P355) and the Chicken & Steak Fajitas (P420). Second favorite is the Ultimo Chicken Chimichangas (P315 for grande size).

    Hap Chan: Craving For Chinese Cuisine?

    by cyndymc Updated Jul 25, 2010

    We went to Hap Chan not by choice, but by convenience. All the shops at Bonifacio High Street were still closed; we didn't know they open at 12 noon yet. Since we were already hungry, we thought of having a snack first. We walked to nearby Market! Market! and since Hap Chan was the first restaurant we saw upon crossing the street, we decided to have some dimsums.

    I liked the interior decor. The lanterns and furnishings were aptly chosen for the Chinese motif. The dining hall was clean, spacious and didn't look cluttered and cramped like other Chinese restaurants. Service was generally okay though the IDs showed that the waiters were trainees.

    Hot house tea was served to diners, but we ordered cold drinks. We expected their dishes to be as delicious as the other dishes we've tried in other Chinese restaurants, but our expectations were not met. The food was not really extraordinary and tasty.

    Favorite Dish: I liked their Chicken Feet Dimsum and sharksfin dimsum, but I can't say they were instant favorites.

    Sushi King: Japanese Food

    by cyndymc Written Feb 28, 2010

    The name of the restaurant caught my attention. I love Japanese food, especially maki and sushi so I make it a point to try the Japanese restaurants at the mall, whether big restaurant or small. The crowd inside the restaurant also made me think the sushi there must be good.

    Favorite Dish: I liked their assorted sushi and California maki. My husband liked their beef curry bento box.

    Kamay Kainan: Eat Local Foods With Your Hands

    by cyndymc Written Feb 28, 2010

    I have not personally tried eating here, but I heard Kamay Kainan is a good option for tasting local foods. You can eat the dishes like the locals do, ala-"kamayan" (eating with your hands), but you can always request for utensils.

    Seafood Island: For Seafood Fanatics

    by cyndymc Written Feb 28, 2010

    Pirate ship-inspired motif of the restaurant was amusing; restaurant was generally clean; there's a separate room which can be reserved for family and group events; clean restrooms and separate wash basins for hands; more convenient place to eat seafoods than in Dampa-inspired restos where you buy the seafoods yourself and have the restos cook the dishes.

    Favorite Dish: I like their Salt & Pepper Crab, oyster rockefeller,and boodle feast

    Fu by Hai Shin Lou: Cantonese Style Resto in Serendra

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 24, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Again I've Always wonder why cantonese restaurants are so Plentiful in the Philippines and Fujian Cuisine is practically non existent even though more than 90% of Immigrant Chinese in the Philippines came from Fujian Province and Not from Guangzhou Province (can somebody anwer why?). This Cantonese Restaurant was Started by as a Spin Off Branch of the Chinese Restaurant Hai Shin Lou in Pasay Road, Makati. From the looks of It, This Restaurant is Among the Packed Places in Piazza Serendra. This restaurant is mid price and not as high end as Gloriamaris or Tin Hau of Mandarin Oriental.

    Favorite Dish: They also have chinese fusion like the suckling pig and chiken sushi at 120 pesos an order and the dipping sauce was hoi sin off course. We also tried the Appetizer "suckling pig and then some" (it comes with roast suckling pig chinese style and chinese barbecue and century egg plus cuttlefish) which was good and costs 500 pesos an order. Soyed Chicken with Seaweed (see picture) was a knockout at 280 pesos an order. For soup, chicken with abalone mushroom was very filling (see picture) and yummy!. the Fish Fillet in Satay sauce was another fusion cuisine and costs 380 pesos an order and the hangchou fried rice was very richly topped with many toppings like shrimp, pork meat, snow peas, egg and fish. It cost 180 pesos an order.

    Miss Desserts: Dessert Galore

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 24, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lots of Sinful and Deelicious Deserts! When eating in Piazza Serendra, it is a tradition that you will eat dessert from a separate place where you ate your main course and the top two choices are Cupcakes by Sonaja (NY Style Cupcakes) and Miss Desserts, we chose the latter. Although Cupcakes by Sonja has more customers, Miss Desserts have more selections (I admit, I don't like cupcakes that much) and it won the Cheesecake Challenge done last year by a Known Filipino Restauanteur and Chef Gene Gonzalez. Cheesecakes here are comparable if not better in taste from the Cheesecake Factory in Macy's Union Square in San Francisco (see my SF Pages).

    Opens from 12:00 pm - 12:00 mn today. Su, M: 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
    T, W, Th, F, Sa: 12:00 pm - 12:00 mn
    F, Sa: 12:00 mn - 1:00 am

    Favorite Dish: The New York Classic Cheesecake with generous flavors of Philadelphia cream cheese (they even has a sugar free version). It cost 100 pesos a slice and 120 pesos for sugarfree. A Glass of freshly squeezed orange juice is 90 pesos. The Belgian Chocolate Maquis (extra sinful and super decadent!) at 105 pesos a slice. The White Macadamia Cheesecake was also very sinful and price was 112 pesos slice, boy I was sooo stuffed!

    Murray's New Orleans Bourbon St Steaks & Oysters: Cajun and Louisiana Cuisine

    by machomikemd Written Sep 10, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has made a comeback! It was a popular restaurant and dining place in Greenbelt Makati in my youth, serving the best jambalaya and baby back ribs in the Metro Manila Area but it closed down in the 1990's due to mismanagement. Presently the owners also owned Claw Daddy beside it (Claw Daddy specializes in Sea Food and also ribs!) that you can order both menus while in one restaurant or in the other.

    Favorite Dish: Jambalaya Rice! Baby Back Ribs! Cajun Chicken! Cajun Fish! they are excellent and not that spicy, a real treat and really filling since servings here are meant for sharing ok! prices are also for sharing! that 1 order of Pork Ribs with Jambalaya Rice is 900 pesos and an order of Cajun Chicken with rice is 450 pesos and the Cajun Dory fish at 500 pesos. A Slice of Mudpie Cake (the specialty dessert) is about 180 pesos and is loaded with lots of chocolate!

    welcome! packed! have some ribs how about Cajun Chicken Mudpie Slice!

    Chelsea Market Cafe Serendra: A Copy of Midtown Manhattan Chelsea

    by machomikemd Written Jul 23, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chelsea, the sister restaurant of M Cafe, opened in Serendra last April 13, 2007. It offers a theme of the recently Gentrified and hottish scene in the Chelsea section of Midtown Manhattan in New York City, particularly at the Large Chelsea Market which has numerous restaurants, Non-stop food tours and tastings happen there every minute. It is also the new home of the Food TV Network and is the "in" thing for new york yuppies aside from SOHO (South of Houston) and Tribeca (Triangle Between Canal).

    The restaurant definitely looks like one of the cushy bistros you would walk into in downtown New York. Deli goods, wines, big-muscled rustic breads, crates of fresh veggies, a shelf of gourmet sauces for sale, all-nations cheeses, stacks of china in different places for the waiters to grab, and an attention-getting showcase of complex cakes and desserts that you must have space for.

    Chef Sau del Rosario (also of M Café) oversees the place teeming with a dozen or so of mild-mannered wait staff and young chefs dressed in their whites. In terms of ambiance, Chelsea’s got it, so people drop in to have their slice of New York via the pizzas, the Wagyu Steak sandwich, the salads, the fondue and the heavy dishes such as lamb shank with tabbouleh and couscous. And they are also taking home gourmet sauces and the homemade breads, making the motions of “We’ll be back again!” to the friendly waiters.

    Favorite Dish: So many items on the menu seem excellent choices like the pizza (served on a wooden chopping board) and the salads (served in a really huge bowl) Toblerone torte (P160)--layers upon layers of mellow chocolate mousse speckled with bits of nougat alternate with soft, light meringue layers and topped with a block of Toblerone. The result is a scrumptious dessert that tickles the tastebuds. A glass of strawberry iced tea (P95) and Peach Iced Tea also at (95 Pesos) is a great thirst-quencher, with bits of fresh strawberries adding a fruity sweetness to the drink. And surprise! The prices are reasonable, considering you’re in the current darling place of Ayala Land, The Serendra. No wonder it is the ideal place to be seen—social istambay notwithstanding

    Caffe Puccini: Italian Opera Singer Restaurant

    by machomikemd Updated Jul 17, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Cafe is a tribute to the venerable italian Giacomo Puccini, a famous opera Composer in yesteryears but eclipsed by more popular opera singers like Luciano Pavarotti!. And so this cafe is also italian as espresso!

    Favorite Dish: why the margherita pizza (thin crust, which is the italian way) at 380 pesos an order and the capuccino which was 130 pesos an order. finally a dash of the world famous italian gelato (strawberry flavor) at 150 pesos a scoop. bellisimo!

    Magnifico! welcome! ahh pizza! bellisimo!
