Lugang Cafe: Feast on Mouthwatering Contemporary Taiwanese Cuisine


Lugang Cafe is the Philippine franchise of Beijing-based Bellagio Cafe, a very popular Taiwanese restaurant in Beijing and Shanghai. True enough, the restaurant has been awarded for its delicious, world-class contemporary Taiwanese dishes and stylish interiors by none other than the prestigious Philippine Tatler's 100 Best Restaurant awards from 2011 to 2014. All the handiwork of their team of world-class Chinese chefs that are passionate to serve the very best dishes that Taiwan has to offer. 

We were able to enjoy a number of their excellent dishes through their Feast All You Can Promotion, which ends this July 30, 2016, where you can enjoy unlimited dimsum and more for only Php 588+! Although they do seem to regularly offer this promo, it's not a certainty so I do recommend you take the opportunity now.

Here's more on our Lugang Cafe experience...

Regine Velasquez Launches Her Very Own Cookbook, Bongga sa Kusina: Recipes From Sarap Diva


Regine Velasquez may be known for her amazing voice, but little do people know that she's also passionate about entertaining her family and friends in the kitchen. This passion led Regine to start hosting Sarap Diva in 2012, where she shares with viewers personal recipes and heirloom concoctions by Regine, Chef Jonah, and a number of her celebrity guests. - all while having entertaining exchanges between Regine and her guests. 

The show inspired Regine to release her very own cookbook Bongga Sa Kusina: Recipes from Sarap Diva. The book features 48 delicious and practical recipes ranging from soups, seafood, poultry, meat, vegetables, pasta, and desserts that have been featured in Sarap Diva.

"Regine has always said in interviews that the reason she wanted to learn how to cook was to impress me," says her loving husbard Ogie Alcasid. "She has always been blessed with an amazing palate, but I didn't realize it would result in her venturing into culinary arts."

I got my hands on a copy of the book and the pages are just beautiful. I can't wait to start cooking!

Wabi-Sabi Noodle House: Affordable Vegetarian Dishes That Will Leave You Wanting More


Wabi-Sabi Noodle House first opened their doors inside The Collective in 2010 to begin serving delicious vegetarian dishes that's a bit easy on the pocket. Since then, they've amassed sort of a cult following of foodies who love their unique twist to vegetarian food, that they even had to open a new store in Quezon City to serve their fans from around the area. In fact, I found out about Wabi-Sabi from a spot.ph feature article when their new store opened. Since then, I found myself a regular customer of their Makati store, always enjoying that delicious bowl of Chahan or a plate of their delicious Okonomigyoza. But more on those later.

One look at the menu shows that the dishes are mainly Asian-inspired, with a strong Vietnamese, Japanese, and Thai influence. Most of their customers, like myself, probably aren't vegetarian. They just serve food that's just that good. Who said vegetarian food doesn't have to taste amazing?

Here's what you can expect from Wabi-Sabi Noodle House...
