IN TATLER: JANUARY 2012

This post is way beyond overdue (okay, not sooo...) but it's never too late to grab that mag, especially 'cause we're only halfway through January of 2012! :)
To welcome the New Year, we featured two beautiful and accomplished young ladies of the society who are just about to face a new chapter in their individual newly married lives — Bianca Zobel & Marga Valdes.

In this issue you'll find them in some of the most alluring and enchanting pieces of bridal brand from Spain Rosa Clara, now open at ground floor of The Residences, Makati.

It was also a first for me to shoot at The National Museum which was quite interesting. It was captivating to see and be around the famous piece of Juan Luna — The Spolarium. One could immenseley feel the energy and emotion of the painting just by staring at it.

RELOCATE TO: RELIK TAPAS BAR & LOUNGE

If you're looking for some flavorful comfort food, delectable cocktails and a distinctive vibe to be at on a week night or a weekend, it's the perfect time to relocate your usual hangout to the newest Tapas Bar and Lounge in town — RELIK.

Photobucket

Relik has an ancient vibe portrayed in their antique inspired lamps, ceiling fans, retro looking speakers and brick walls. It is in fusion with a modern feel of a mix of trendy furniture and a relaxed atmosphere revealed with dim lights. The area is spacious with tables and chairs on an easy-going dance floor and a choice of an enclosed VIP lounge with glass walls, perfect for private affairs.

And now for the food...
Chef Benjo Tuason of Relik had prepared some tapas for moi and I literally food coma'd once more and topped it off with their Mojito.

WHAT I HAD:

Photobucket
My favourite tapas:
Gambas Diablo 324 php

Photobucket

Photobucket
My 2nd favourite tapas: Beef tenderloin salpicao 302 php


Photobucket

Photobucket
My 3rd favourite tapas: Lamb meatballs Tunisian style 302 php


Photobucket

Also try their Quesadilla with barbecue chicken 270 php

Photobucket

or their Risotto with piperade and lardon 250 php for something more filling.

Photobucket
Okay, this is the killer: Here's a new way to look at the usual french fries —

Huevos rotos with chorizo de Gloria 205 php

All mashed up underneath a sunny side-up egg are french fries and chorizo.

Photobucket
No words — guys will love this with their beer.

Topped it off with Mojitos! :)
