Hottest restaurant opening (and well-deserved too!) is Chef Josh Boutwoodโ€™s newest place Savage @savagemnl where everything is cooked over wood and charcoal. ๐Ÿ”ฅ We had giant chicharon dusted with vinegar powder and dipped in curry ketchup ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฅซ, charred romaine with anchovy garlic dressing ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŸ, devilled eggs ๐Ÿฃ, head cheese terrine ๐Ÿท, ribeye with charred onions ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฅฉ, and four things you must order when you go: creamy fresh burrata with heirloom tomatoes ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿ…, a massive tuna jaw with miso that I may or may not share with others next time ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿคค, mighty flavorful chicken with pickled radish and basil ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿƒ, and succulent lamb chops with mint and malt. ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฑ Tip: Make sure to book ahead, the place was packed on a Thursday night! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ #savage #joshboutwood

So happy to discover a new hotpot place tonight! ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ˜ Xiaolongkan Restaurant is operated by Mainland Chinese people and is naturally packed with Mainland Chinese people, which means it can get a bit noisy, but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Our chicken and mushroom broth was boiled for six hours with red dates and chinese herbs, creating a soup base that is tasty and nutritious. They also have spicy broth, meats and seafoods, different kinds of balls, veggies, plus a variety of shabu-shabu ingredients. The restaurant is located at Eastfield Center along Macapagal Blvd and currently takes cash only. Book ahead or be prepared to wait.

Our 1-hour dinner in the sky in a 1-minute clip. โœจ Tips: 5:30pm is the best time to go, you catch the sunset as you take off ๐ŸŒ… and enjoy city lights as you descend. ๐ŸŒƒ For the best views, request for corner seats closer to the bay. There are lockers available to store your bags. No slippers, please! Passenger weight limit: 150 kg (whew! ๐Ÿ˜…) Avoid drinking too much before the flight. No peeing allowed in the sky! #dinnerintheskyph #dinnerinthesky
