Spectrum at Fairmont: Japanese Izakaya Done Right

Spectrum at Fairmont: Japanese Izakaya Done Right

Delight in your favorite Japanese dishes at the Spectrum at Fairmont where they serve various culinary favorites every Wednesday night.

Japanese cuisine seems to be the favorite when it comes to the Filipino palate. For years, it’s remained the most popular foreign cuisine. And rightfully so, Japanese food has been around since World War II when the Japanese conquered the Philippines. Their food is simple, yet the way they prepare makes all the difference starting from the quality of ingredients.

Through the years we have all developed the love for sushi, sashimi, tempura, yakitori, and the teppanyaki that we have so many different Japanese restaurants all over Metro Manila. While there are so many available choices, not all of them have authentic Japanese.

From the moment you enter the Spectrum, you are welcomed into an elegant dining space with high ceilings and beautiful hanging fixtures that are sure to set the mood on your dining experience.

FGDO RECOMMENDS

The theme of the Spectrum Japanese Buffet is Izakaya, Izakaya is bar chow in Japan so you will notice that dishes they showcased were typically found in these bars that were eaten when drinking sake or beer.

Sashimi and Sushi Selection

We were quite taken with the quality of Salmon Sashimi that Spectrum offered. This was the absolute FRESHEST Salmon Sashi we’ve ever had. The serving size is also very generous, as the chef asks you exactly how many slices you want. If you want a poke bowl, they also have that available.

Kushiyaki and Teppanyaki station

Have the fill of your choice of teppanyaki and yakitori with their prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood. They have a wide selection of salmon belly, top blade steak with scallions, pork belly, pork loin, boneless chicken thigh, shrimp, red snapper, and squid. We suggest trying the seafood teppan and their shrimp yakitori.

Udon Station

Don’t miss out on the Udon station. These bowls are by request, we suggest the beef udon, springy udon noodles on a bed of their beef broth and topped with greens, tamago, seaweeds, and tempura flakes. Each mouthful is comforting, you can taste that umami flavor from the broth and the different textures added to the dish elevate it even further. It’s quite addiciting.

Authentic Izakaya Fare

They also offer classic Izakaya Fare from Yakitori, Ebi Tempura, Kushikatsu, Teriyaki Chicken Wings, Gyoza, Edamame, and Tonkatsu. A must try is their mussels with spicy mayo and topped with Ebiko. These dishes are perfectly paired with Sake and Sapporo. It reminds me of our recent visit to Tokyo.

 

Dessert

Savor their Japanese themed dessert spread with Matcha tiramisu and crepe cake, chestnut mont blanc, mushi-pan, Japanese pudding, black sesame crème brûlée, and a selection of mochi.

 

Other Offerings 

Aside from their excellent Japanese spread, they also have an international buffet that features an array of cold cuts and cheeses, salads, Italian, Chinese, and Filipino staple dishes.

 

WHY GO?

Each stop was a mixture of varying aromas, heat, and exhibition. With each individual way of cooking and preparing the food. This is one reason why we believe Japanese food is special and so well loved within our culture. With Chef Ric Ramos at the helm, you’re sure to enjoy Japanese night. The key is carefully curated ingredients prepared using perfected techniques that produce simple yet, heartwarming traditional Japanese dishes.

Experience Japanese night at the Spectrum, every Wednesday evening at Php 2,600 per person.

Where to To Take Your Dad This Father’s Day

Where to To Take Your Dad This Father’s Day

A few days left before June 16th!  Where will you celebrate Father’s Day? A few may say that mandatory celebration like is just a big marketing hoax to get you to spend and be lured in as a consumer. Well, partly YES. Same with Valentine’s day right? or any life celebrations for that matter. We, Pinoys are sappy sentimental like that and we are more empathetic, celebratory, and sentimental by culture. We grew up that way and we shouldn’t feel sorry for it. Besides, Father’s Day is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards fathers.

Most don’t have any clue just yet where to take our precious dads so we the Fat Girls Day Out crew listed our top 5 recommendations on where to take our Tatay this coming Sunday!

 

 

 

 

 

All beef needs to be aged to allow the natural enzymatic process to tenderize the meat. They are currently two ways to do it: dry ageing and wet ageing. Wet ageing allows the meat to tenderize for 7-14 days, any longer and it gets this metallic flavour that is unpleasant to the mouth. For dry ageing, full enzymatic tenderization takes about 28 days to complete. They do this by keeping the beef in a temperature controlled room for a certain amount of days.

If you want a unique dining experience and the restaurant’s character itself is a conversation topic.  Their price for their hot dishes (to share) is a little steep, but the serving portions are huge which is perfect for large groups. Long Time Ago stays true to the Szechuan lineage of crafting each dish by using authentic core ingredients.

I would definitely still vouch for the VALUE FOR MONEY line without compromising quality. You’d be able to enjoy a good old steak plate for less than 500php. Generous serving, attentive wait staff, and their ice creams are still really good.

Tapenade Restaurant at Discovery Primea: Celebrate World Paella Day 2018

Tapenade Restaurant at Discovery Primea: Celebrate World Paella Day 2018

Paella is a dish that was originally farmers’ and farm laborers’ food. This dish was cooked by cooking over a wood fire for a lunchtime meal. This dish was traditionally made with rice, and vegetables available, and beans to add texture. There are cases where they even add a rabbit or duck when there is a special occasion, and they even add a dash of saffron. This dish was made in a pan with a flat bottom and traditionally ate in the pan with a wooden spoon.

While there is a variety of paella known to this day, they say a “true” paella Valenciana dish has no seafood but a mixture of chicken, rabbit, and snails with green and white beans.

Every 20th of September, in Valencia (Spain) the birthplace of Paella shares their international dish to the world by celebrating World Paella Day.

Here at Tapenade Restaurant at the Discovery Primea, they are bringing this international celebration to Manila from September 20 to 23 and let us celebrate World Paella Day!
