I had fun at Tod's Fall/ Winter 2017 Collection with my brother Charles. (Maybe the feeling is not mutual hanging out w/ me as I'm the only one smiling. πŸ˜„πŸ˜…πŸ˜†) I'm wearing the #TodsGommino with beautiful tassels this season, and the #TodsSellaBag, and Charles is wearing the #TodsSneakers-- all part of this season's collection.❀️❀️❀️More on my IG stories. ☝️ (πŸ“·: Andrew Co) #Tods #TodsFW17 #TodsFW17manila @SSILifePH

In terms of "fine" (this definition has evolved over time) dining, Nouri is possibly the most talked about new restaurant opening in Singapore at the moment, helmed by chef Ivan Brehm (formerly of Bacchanalia), in partnership with amazing Loh Lik Peng of Unlisted collection πŸ™Œ.
The space is gorgeous and the dishes, I find, are a cerebral journey & crossing of cultures through various countries and continents which have inspired Ivan. 🌎🌍🌏

This is the acaraje (Afro-Brazilian fritters) in turmeric & coconut curry (Thai meets Brazil), and vatapa (salted prawn & cashew gravy), topped w/ okra caviar confit in Tahitian vanilla oil.
β€’
I paid SGD$85 (PHP3,000) for the 5-course omakase lunch, but they also have a Teishoku-style ala carte if you're in a rush (or on a budget). Swipe left for a quick video peek inside the gorgeous dining space.

Meanwhile in Singapore, their 1st Peruvian restaurant has arrived in the form of TONO Cevicheria, by Peruvian owner-chef Daniel Chavez and Mexican executive chef Mario Malvaez, also of OLA Cocina Del Mar. β€’
A fun, casual eatery (hey, you know how our Latin brothers are always up for a party, which is exactly what Tono means!πŸ’ƒ) located at the up-and-coming DUO Galleria (its right across the street from Atlas BarπŸ˜‰), ceviches-- whether fish, octopus, calamari-- are naturally the star. Perfect for no-carb dinners!πŸ™Œ β€’
And while I've known Daniel for a while, you know how I met Mario? At the Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants after-party hosted by Enrique Olvera in Mexico City last year, 50 Best's Laura Price and I were in line for tacos at the Sud 777 truck, when Mario was like "I live in Asia, too! I work with Daniel in Singapore!" Firstly, what a small world & now what do you know-- their new baby (Mario trained in Peru for 3 months) is finally born!

Morning!!!β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ Want to take a peek into the kitchens and dining rooms of some of the best restaurants in the world, located in Spain's Bilbao & San SebastiΓ‘n?
I’m often asked which one is my favorite and which one I recommend, and it’s really a tough answer because each one has their own philosophy, and they communicate this very powerfully through their dishes.

So come, let's go take a look a quick tour around Nerua, Azurmendi, Asador Etxebarri, Arzak and Mugaritz.. And meet chefs Josean Alija, Eneko Atxa, Victor Arguinzoniz, Elena Arzak and Andoni Aduriz--all in 60 seconds!πŸ’ƒπŸ‘―πŸ€—

A huge honor to be part of Tatler's Generation T, defined as "50 top entrepreneurs, bright talents, creatives and big thinkers shaping the Philippines' future" -- for the 2nd year!😱 πŸ’žπŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ Thank you so much to the Philippine Tatler team for the recognition!πŸ™ Had loads of fun celebrating with friends last night, congratulations everyone!!❀️ (Swipe left for more ⬅️; all the action on my IG stories above ☝️) #GenerationT #GenT #Tatler #PhilippineTatler

Louis Vuitton always throws some of the coolest parties and last night was no exception as they opened their newest store at The Shoppes at Solaire Resort. ❀️ Congratulations to both the LV and Solaire teams! Don't mind my face, I was telling my friend Anthony Wahl (who took this pic & also happened to be an LV model last night 😎) about the hashtag. I love how they incorporated Philippine elements like the jeepney and our Manila cityscape on the backdrop created by Third Culture Music and Mvltiverse. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ™ #LouisVuitton #LVPhilippines #Solaire #Manila #Philippines

It's been short but really sweet, Singapore! Thank you Speciality & Fine Food Asia (@specialityasia) for having me at your 1st gourmet trade fair in the region! Happy to have been reunited with chef Ray Adriansyah of Locavore in Bali, Indonesia who is an advocate of championing local (he also cooked with us at @cross.cultures in Manila last AprilπŸ™Œ) who is the headliner of the UK-based event! I may be back in the Philippines now but the fair goes on up to TODAY at the Suntec Convention Center and it's FREE for anyone in the F&B and Travel industries, so do check it out!

It's been a while since I flew Philippine Airlines overseas so I'm "naninibago" with everything. (*Everything seems new to me.) βœˆοΈπŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ For instance, in-flight entertainment comes in the form of an IPad that they lend to you. (I was watching "Fresh Of The Boat" and a little trivia: Constance Wu will be playing Rachel on the upcoming "Crazy Rich Asians!"πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ) As for the food, I opted for Fernando Aracama's Cod Estillo Afritada. Don't think they are lacking, I just don't eat a lot of bread and ice cream (they have yummy Carmen's Best !🍦🍦🍦). But I did wipe out their supply of champagne (Charles Heidsick🍾🍾🍾), nuts and dark chocolate coins.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ Check out my IG stories to see where I've traveled to. ☝️☝☝#philippineairlines #flyPAL #businessclass #travel #airbus #ipad #charlesheidsick #freshoftheboat #crazyrichasians #fernandoaracama #inflight #airplane #manila #philippines #cheryltiutravels

Happy Monday, Manila!β˜€οΈ With a growing interest in health and fitness, I'm often asked these days, "Where can we eat healthy in Manila??" And my pick, apart from Japanese (see 3 posts ago), is Green Pastures. πŸ’ž They have an array of salads, grain bowls, cauli-fried rice & farm-to-table tapas... and as I love poke, I always order the Poke-Bowl (this is small at PHP515 or USD10.3). It's tuna poke, 5-minute duck eggs, avocado, kale, edamame and nori sitting on quinoa with a sesame ginger lime dressing.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ In the 1.5 months I've been in Manila, I've eaten here 3x! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ PS Chef Robby Goco has opened his newest (Greek) baby Souv by Cyma (@souvbycyma) next door. I've not yet been but let me know how it is! πŸ€— #greenpastures #greenpasturesBGC #BGC #poke #pokebowl #salad #wheretoeatinmanila #healthiswealth #health #healthyfood #manila #philippines #happymonday

Inside Pink Hotdog's BGC is a speakeasy called Hotel Bar. Just last week, owner Ana de Ocampo opened up the lower bar space adjacent for a similar nightcap experience but with a less clandestine feel. (2nd photo) 🍷🍸🍻 *PS Meanwhile in Los Angeles, her sister Margie and husband Walter Manzke of Republique also just opened a Filipino rice bowl concept Sari-Sari Store at Grand Central Market the other day (July 14), and it's already drawing lots of excitement!πŸ™ŒπŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸšπŸ³ #pinkshotdogs #pinksmanila #pinkshotdogsmanila #hotelbar #hotelbarmanila #nightcap #cocktailbar #shangrilafort #bgc #manila #philippines #speakeasy #republique #sarisaristore #losangeles #republiquela

Re-visited one of my favorite restaurants in Manila-- Mecha Uma; ordered 90% of the ala carte menu, and *everything* was amazing. 😭😭😭❀️❀️❀️ (*Even if Bruce Ricketts wasn't there; I appreciate restaurants that can uphold the same quality even w/o the head chef. Happy birthday Bruce!!!πŸŽ‚πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅) And was so happy to have it with this gorgeous Kosta Browne pinot noir that my friend brought back from California. (I'm told you can only order the wine in the USA if you're on their mailing list, and it takes years to be able to join!) It went super well with the food.πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ Such a fab dinner. *I'm obsessed with uni so in photo are: uni soba and miso pan (sea urchin & eggplant on potato bread). PS Good news, Kosta Browne is carried by PWX in Manila- thanks for the tip, Alicia Sy! #mechauma #brucericketts #themomentgroup #asias50best #delicious #manila #philippines #kostabrowne #pinotnoir #wine

So loads of people, myself included, have been trying to eat well (clean & healthy), and Japanese is a no-brainer for that! πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅πŸ£ In my opinion, Tsukiji makes the best chirashi in the whole Philippines, flying in the freshest seafood (look how plump & juicy) from Japan. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ In case you care, I skip the soy sauce and lather on a ton of wasabi on each piece (they are grated fresh here so it's mild kind of kick)... Skip the rice, and inhale the entire bowl of miso soup. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ Their ohmi Wagyu sashimi is also amazing. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #tsukijimakati #tsukiji #chirashi #japnese #makati #philippines #yummyyummyinmytummy
