My family and I hardly visit Eastwood City or the establishments along Eastwood City Walk since we haven’t really had any good reason to actually go out of our way to visit this commercial area.
But it seems that all that is about to change — all thanks to a new food spot that I recently discovered.
The place is called Liberty Asian Refuge + Bar.
What makes Liberty Asian Refuge + Bar stand out among most restaurants in this area, is that it is perhaps one of the (if not the only) cheapest food establishment in Eastwood City offering great tasting dishes. I kid you not, folks. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find this out yourselves when you drop by Liberty Asian Refuge + Bar.
In the 1960’s, many citizens of Makati would associate the 6749 Ayala Avenue address with the Gilarmi Apartments, the first serviced apartment building in the country. Established in 1962 by Virgilio Hilario, he named the building after his son Gil, and his Miss Universe beauty pageant winning wife, Armi Kuusela. Their level of service was famous all throughout the city, and arguably Asia.
Today, Discovery Primea stands in the same spot as Gilarmi Apartments once rose, and upholds its name and legacy of fine service in Makati at The Gilarmi Lounge. The hotel’s lobby lounge offers various styles and brews of coffee, high tea, cocktails, draught beer and Filipino-inspired bar fare.
The Gilarmi Lounge at Discovery Primea is an ideal venue for intimate groups. The lounge presents patrons with an unparalleled experience of Ayala Avenue through floor to ceiling windows and live piano music, while enjoying a wide variety of coffee or TWG loose leaf teas from 7AM to 11PM daily.
Here’s something to excite you and make you want to drop by The Gilarmi Lounge at Discovery Primea sooner than later…
For a limited time only, The Gilarmi Lounge at Discovery Primea will offer the “The Gilarmi Sunset” promotion from 5PM to 8PM, Mondays through Sundays. For only Php 595++, guests will be able to enjoy two glasses of Stella Artois Draft Beer and their choice of Modern Filipino bar chow, among Grilled Chicken Wings Inasal, Smoked Bangus Spring Rolls, “Sisig sa Riles” with Chili-Soy, Calamansi and Soft-Poached Egg, and Grilled Tuna Brochettes with Crispy Chili Garlic.
I love eating. It probably may not seem physically evident now after dropping 50lbs a couple of years back but I still do.
I love good food. Who doesn’t? And every chance I get to try new food spots, I immediately grab the opportunity. I guess you could also chalk it up to having a travel/food blogger for a wife. I may not be as critical as my wife when it comes to dissecting the different flavors of a dish and how it exquisitely tickles the palate, so to speak… but I do know good food.
Ever since I was a kid, whenever a person would ask me what kind of cuisine I enjoyed the most, I would always reply, “Japanese”. No question that Japanese food is undoubtedly delicious… but the cuisine has also endeared itself to me perhaps because of how their dishes are presented.
Just last Tuesday, my wife and I were invited to try out Manila’s newest Japanese fine dining establishment – “MAGOSABURO“.
You’re probably familiar with Conway’s Bar inside Makati Shangrila. Well, they’re saying “farewell” after a good 20 years of music and memories. Together with a few good friends from Nuffnang, we dropped by to have some fun and say “so long”.
We’ve been meaning to hit this place up for quite some time now but haven’t really gotten ’round to actually doing it. After visiting their Robinsons Magnolia branch this afternoon and trying out some of their best sellers, I am wondering why we haven’t done so waaaay earlier.
I must say, for someone like me who doesn’t necessarily consider noodles a first option when it comes to dining, Ramen Bar has changed my way of thinking (and eating).
The best and the brightest personalities in Philippine social media take center stage once again as Globe’s [email protected] Awards 2012 kicks off!
My wife and I were invited to the event’s launch which was held at buddha-bar, Kalayaan, Makati City last April 25, 2012. It was the happening-est place in the entire metro.
Everyone who is anyone in the Philippine social media scene was present. You Just know that something important was going to happen.
It was great seeing old friends and new faces alike. Everyone was either busy mingling, moving about or clicking away on their smartphones doing real-time tweets and FB status updates on what was taking place during the launch.
It’s always awesome to hang out with people whom you share the same passion with. Conversations are never dull and always engaging.
Just like the celebrities and personalities in attendance, food and drinks were in absolute abundance. I kid you not… all sorts of food and beverages just kept on coming. *burp!* Excuse me! Hehehe…
The launch was hosted mainly by eventologist, all-around-good-guy (and Instagram addict), Tim Yap.
