Ippudo Now Open in BGC! #IppudoBGC

Ippudo Philippines has officially opened its 3rd branch in Manila, at the newly-opened Uptown Mall at BGC last Friday, May 20. But before that, I got a chance to drop by the newest Ippudo branch last Wednesday. 

Ippudo BGC has more than 100-seating capacity. The high ceilings and the minimalist interiors makes the restaurant feel very spacious. 

For this visit, I had two of my favorite Ippudo side dishes, the Fried Chicken Bun (Php 125) and the Deep-Fried Gyoza (Php 220).

Surfer-Chef JP Anglo shows his twin passions in new TV show

For acclaimed chef JP Anglo (Owner of Sarsa and Kafe Batwan restaurants and judge at Master Chef Philippines), conquering his fears to live out his passion is definitely worth it and makes him a  step closer to truly living life to the fullest.

“I got into surfing because when I moved to Australia to work, I lived by the beach and I wanted to learn how to surf,” Chef JP shares. “My love for surfing started to deepen when I started surfing more regularly. Nothing beats that stoked feeling when you catch a wave letting go of all the fear; it's a natural high and it's infectious.”

The same can be said about his eternal passion for cooking. “Surfing and cooking are similar in the sense that you need to work really hard and have a lot of patience,” he says. “They both come from a 
place of passion, which for me means time stops and you lose yourself in the process. It might be 
riding that epic wave or accidentally coming up with a new dish, and that underlines why emotions 
and energy play big roles in both areas.”

Yabu Katsu Pairs and Tofu Katsu!

My favorite katsu restaurant, Yabu: The House of Katsu never fails to surprise me with new dishes every now and then. Introducing the Tofu Katsu and the Yabu Katsu Pairs!

The new appetizers in the menu, the Tofu Katsu has two kinds: Tofu Katsu with Uni (Php 250) and Agedashi Tofu (Php 220). Each serving has three huge pieces of Japanese tofu with panko crusts.

Agedashi Tofu

The Tofu Katsu with Uni is topped with fresh uni (sea urchin), nori, spring onions, bonito flakes and served with creamy uni sauce while Agedashi Tofu is topped with bonito flakes, grated radish and served with soy dashi sauce. I really love both, but I recommend that you try the Tofu Katsu with Uni if you're into creamy but have the Agedashi Tofu if you like salty. 

Whenever I dine at Yabu, it is always a major dilemma on which katsu set to choose (because I love all katsu sets), but here's a solution to our katsu-choosing problems: the Yabu Katsu Pairs! Because seriously, why have only one when you can have two? :)

Yabu has five Katsu Pairs with either Chicken Katsu or Rosu Katsu.

Chicken and Dory (Php 380)

BurgerPub at The Grove by Rockwell

My friend and I has recently tried this new burger place at The Grove by Rockwell named BurgerPub, which opened early this year. 

Unlike the usual burger places that I go to, BurgerPub strikes me more as a pub than a burger restaurant. As much as I want to have some beers with my burger, I'm really more of a burger-and milkshake person, so we stuck with getting just the burgers. 

For starters, we shared a plate of Belgian Frites (Php 190).

Because of the price, I was expecting something more elaborate but we were served something a bit ordinary. Anyway, I love fries so it wasn't so bad.
