Philippine city that never sleeps

Philippine city that never sleeps

You may have heard of numerous taglines for Philippine cities describing their tourism campaigns and offers, but you definitely haven’t heard of a Filipino City that never sleeps (gaming amenities at least :p )

Though technically, it’s not a city governed by elected public officials. There is a 6.2-hectare city dazzling with luxurious brands, amenities and extravagance – the City of Dreams Manila.

There are 3 grand hotels within the City of Dreams, and one of them is Nobu Hotel.

Awarded 4 stars by Forbes, Nobu hotel caters to a huge market for entertainment-seekers designed with its comfortable and modern interiors. Nobu Hotel is in collaboration with Melco Resort Philippines, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Nobu Hospitality partners including Robert DeNiro and film producer Meir Teper.

Eatsinbaguio team was able to experience not only Nobu hotel but its world-recognized Nobu Restaurant known for its innovative new style Japanese cuisine during the 8th Blogapalooza on October 27, 2018.

The restaurant closes during the night, gaming amenities within City of Dreams however, aren’t stopping.

TOB Food Crawl 2018 Leg Two: A Journey through ElYu for Your Tastebuds

As we lounged around the wonderful Puerto De San Juan (accommodation sponsor), we can’t help but talk about how much of La Union’s foodscape grew; there are so many new places to eat, so much variety actually …especially along the city of San Fernando and San Juan town, the foodscape has grown considerably in the past few years continuously expanding to cater for the foodie instagrammable set.

And we at Eats in Baguio were lucky to have continued our second day for the 2nd leg of the The Other Bloggers Food crawl 2018, this time in the warm sandy region of La Union.

The Food Project La Union

Everyone loves variety and this cool Instagram worthy food park packs a punch with all this delicious food stalls teaming with all the viands of food you might want to gorge yourself with.



What The Pho

What the Pho serves famous Vietnamese dishes, remember Coffee Library? When we told you they had “phonomenal pho?” we were not kidding you, this is the same amazing recipe (What The Pho is Coffee Library’s baby) aside from the pho, they have a bunch of amazing dishes to die for… Oh yes, were not exaggerating, were salivating!

Layag Grille and Kilawen Bar

We were gluttons by the sea, besieged with all these irresistible grilled seafood recipes originating from Davao, and of course there is nothing like dining on a dock overlooking the beach. Another one of those places for your barkada or family, because of their large servings.

Elyu’s Surfers Grill

Grill and chill is the name of the game, eat all you can grill with fresh fish, meat  etc. you name it, you eat it. They also have bands at night, and that’s the “”chill part”, this is what we would call the busogan, eat til you drop dead portion of the program, we implore you to come here on an empty stomach.
