The steakhouse is named after Wolfgang Zweiner, who opened his eponymous restaurant after having worked as head waiter at the legendary Peter Luger’s steakhouse in New York for more than 40 years. It was during those years where he gained extensive expertise in the dry ageing process of USDA Prime quality beef as well as the steak high temperature broiling preparation process – key elements which would eventually evolve into Wolfgang Steakhouse’s unique philosophy for excellence.
I’ve recently discovered a magical place in Tagaytay hidden away inside a new developing village which is a home away from home for happy new age hippies such as myself. Relax and let your om mani paddle hum humming self relax and enjoy the fresh air, the plethora of books to get lost in, and discover new tools, crystals, and oils to enhance your current mindful meditation practice at the Bodhi Shop.
Between learning about the benefits of juicing, exploring their organic farm, and melting on the massage table from a two-hour traditional Filipino massage, Jericho and I spent our days in different corners of the big property, either exploring the place by ourselves, catching up on sleep, taking a dip in the pool, or finding a quiet spot to curl up with a book and read ’til we dozed off. The only time we’d actually see each other was during meal times, where we’d meet at the restaurant, Gabriela, to enjoy the healthy cuisine choices they had on offer.
I was given a demo on the Nurture Healing Juices specifically concocted by their wellness nurse designed to help prevent sickness and help the body heal itself. They blend their juice to maximise the benefits of everything from the concentrated liquid product to the pulp and offer special packages for wellness retreats that include these juices and healthy meals during your stay.
I left my laptop at home, barely kept my phone on, and decided to go back to basics for a 3-day stay at Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay to re-learn the bare necessities of life – a quiet mind, a relaxed body, and eating organic and all-natural. I got all of that and so much more, now I can’t wait to go back!
When your get the hankering for your favorite cut of beef, charbroiled to utter perfection, with your choice of toppings, sidings, and sauces – then by Jove, you have got to head on over to Chops Chicago Steakhouse at Greenbelt 5.
I am pretty chuffed that this authentic Japanese place that specializes in teishoku, or set meals, chose to open in the south, a short drive from where I live at the Evia Lifestyle Center. This is definitely one of those simple dining spots to share with friends and family.
Chelcie’s Homemade Spreads isn’t just for toast! The lovely selection of artisanal fruit butters and spreads are a hit at home with their unique flavor combinations and versatile uses!
Earth Kitchen is a restaurant dedicated to promote the products of local farmers and indigenous peoples, helping communities become sustainable by using their produce as the focal point of the menu. Products like cashew nuts from Palawan, pili nuts from Naga, wild honey foraged by Mangyans and Tagbanuas, and organic greens grown in Tarlac and Bukidnon can be found in their menu.
It’s no wonder that a lot of Filipinos who migrate to the States choose Hawaii (or California) as their new home. It’s not surprising, as Native Hawaiians also share a somewhat similar ethnic background, have that same openness and hospitality which they call the “Aloha Spirit”, appreciate the traditional values of having a close knit ohana, and our unhealthy fascination with Spam. We also share a love for good food in general, which is probably how Teddy’s Bigger Burgers ended up on our shores.
