Beautiful Friendship over Seafood Island’s Sinuglaw Boodle

Friendship is like a good food. It has a nice combination of taste, full of colors that attract positivity in life and more importantly, it is something that money can’t equate to. I love having good food around just like having a good friend, who you can laugh with and spend the day in a very nice way.

Last weekend, I had a wonderful time spending some BFF moments with my good friend, Maan Pamaran, in one of the most convenient boutique hotels in the metro. A perfect break from our busy lives, the two us had an amazing “girly” pampering in the south through the wonderful amenities of our hotel and its neighborhood. And though the hotel has its own quaint and beautiful restaurant, we chose to spend our dinner at a nearby mall to see how convenient it is to be here in the south and to somehow continue my quest in discovering the southern part of Manila.

With all our excitement and hunger, our feet brought us to Blackbeard Seafood Island. A fun, quirky and adventurous dining place located at the 2nd Level of Alabang Town Center. This is actually not my first time here, but since, we’re so hungry and we couldn’t think of any dining area that serves really good food in large and generous servings, we went in and find a perfect spot where we could just talk, relax and eat – A LOT.

Mesclun Bistro: Your Mix of Wonderful Delights at Linden Suites

Aside from its convenient location, heart-warming accommodation and superb facilities and amenities, The Linden Suites in Ortigas, Pasig City, also takes pride of housing one of the classiest and comforting restaurants in the metro, Mesclun. A restaurant headed by Chef Katrina Arce Kuhn-Alcantara, Mesclun is your kitchen-dining area away from home.

Taking its name from the old Occitane for “mixture” or in popular culture, refers to a mixed greens, Mesclun fires up the kitchen of The Linden Suites sharing new and unique dishes while balancing the experience with its classy yet comfortable interior.

During my weekend stay at The Linden Suites, Mesclun served as my life-savior and life-savor as I indulged on to their mouthwatering dishes that are set to whet one’s appetite. Prices from this restaurant may be a little but high, but I can assure you that with the comfort, style and serving size that they provide to their guests, staying here over some lunch or dinner while staying at the comfort of The Linden Suites is an experience one should have.

Mesclun dishes vary from contemporary Filipino favorites to Western – mostly European – cuisines that are prepared gourmet style. Apart from Mesclun, Chef Katrina is also the mastermind behind Chuck’s Deli - an American-style super-sandwich and burger shop boasting of homemade breads and cold cuts; and Paulene Chocolat Suisses - a premium line of made-to-order chocolate confections.
