Rice & Dough puts two favorites of many, sushi and pizza, under one awesome roof. They’ve combined Italian and Japanese cuisine, and the result is carb-riffic. Start with their signature appetizer Prosciutto Focaccia; follow it up with the impressive World War Roll; finish strong with their fantastic Crème Brulee Cake. Alternatively, wear the chef hat with their DIY sushi and pizza. Choose your toppings, fillings and flavor combination.

3. Wagga Wagga Jerk Chicken

Foodies mourned the shutdown of a BGC favorite, 2nd’s, in June 2015. Remember their Bacon Chicharon, Truffled Three Cheese Mac and Uni Carbonara? We definitely missed their interesting and flavorful take on comfort food. Well, grief no further because 2nd’s is set to come back this month.

They’re asking suggestions for which menu items we want to taste again. That’s your cue to get your favorites back! Keep their sites on your radar for more updates.

1. Toyo Eatery

2316 Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City
0917 720 8630 | Facebook
Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 6pm onwards

Here’s another dose of good news, foodies! The Black Sheep’s genius Chef Jordy Navarra is back, and this time, he’s taking his Michelin star background to Toyo Eatery. Look forward to bold, innovative and standout Filipino food. Unlike Black Sheep, however, there’s no need to dress fancy. The focus is on the dishes reflecting Pinoy culture and flavors, warmly complemented with Filipino hospitality.
The menu largely depends on what’s the freshest available, which you can take advantage of through a degustation. Toyo Eatery officially opened last March 29.
