Two new entries just bumped last month’s #1 out of the charts.
We were surprised to learn that 2 new entries were able to break this month’s charts–one is a specialty chocolate cafe and the other a Fort favorite serving certified organic and grass fed beef–having been on the new restaurants list only a few weeks back, while last month’s #1 suddenly drops out.
See if your long time favorites are still in the top 5 most loved restaurants in the South this month. Add new ones to your already long list of must try restaurants and enjoy great food as ‘favorited’ by Booky users.
5. Cholate – BF Resort
Cholate is a dessert cafe specializing in chocolate desserts and drinks inspired by the family’s love for chocolates. All their chocolates are purely sourced locally. Aside from chocolates, Cholate also serves sandwiches, pastas, coffee and tea. It’s for a quick snack or weekend tea time with friends and family. It’s not for big groups. We recommend the Trio Los Amigos chocolate shots, Winter Night hot chocolate and True Blue Pinoy milkshake. Our insider tip is watch out for their inspiring messages handwritten on every cup of beverage they serve.
4. The Farm Organics Resto – Alabang
The Farm Organics Resto is a semi self-service farm-to-table concept restaurant that serves certified organic grass-fed beef sourced from their own breeding cattle farm in Masbate, a socially conscious agricultural business operating since 1976. It’s for health minded meat lovers. It’s not for people who don’t like beef. We recommend their bestselling Organic Rib Eye Steak (request for it to be cooked on wood fire for a more flavorful taste) and Avocado Burger. Our insider tip is avocados may be seasonal.
3. Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen – BF International Village
Last month’s #5
Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen is one of South‘s biggest neighborhood secrets, but because good restaurants can’t hide forever, it is now a foodie’s destination for authentic Italian eats. It’s for families and children who enjoy eating in a homely setting. It’s not for people who don’t like to brave the Southern commute (but good news, they’ve already opened a branch in UP Town Center). We recommend the Risotto Tartufo Funghi, Spaghetti Seafood Olio and Pizza Tabarnes. Our insider tip is you can request to have 1 pizza halved in 2 flavors.
2. Sensei Sushi Bar – Aguirre Ave.
Last month’s #2
After his short stint with Robot Restaurant & Lounge, Chef Bruce Ricketts opened Sensei Sushi Bar, a humble local and seasonal Japanese and Asian-inspired restaurant along the now popular Aguirre Avenue in BF Homes. His 12-course Chef’s Omakase received numerous praises for taste, creativity and affordability. It’s for adventurous foodies. It’s not for people who don’t eat raw. We recommend the Chef’s Omakase. For a la carte, order their Torched Salmon Belly and Chutoro Sashimi. Our insider tip is there is no corkage fee, you can BYOB (bring your own bottle).
1. Ramen Yushoken – Molito Lifestyle Mall
Last month’s #3
Ramen Yushoken serves tonkotsu broth ramen using a recipe from famous ramen master Yamagishi Kazuo. It’s a casual restaurant with traditional Japanese sensibilities like fast service and not offering any eating utensils other than chopsticks. It’s for ramen lovers in the South. It’s not for people who are closer to Megamall. We recommend the Miso Tonkotsu Ramen or the spicy Tantan-men with Aji-Tamago on the side. Our insider tip is ask for what’s NOT on the menu.
