0:26 Taipei to Manila – On Day 1 of our short trip to Manila, we took a flight from Taipei to Manila and arrived at night. We were already scheduled to stay at Discovery Primea Hotel, which was arranged by my friend Anton. Flight went well, we got our baggage, and then once we arrived in Manila,someone from the hotel was there to greet us and picked us up.
1:26 Discovery Primea Hotel – Discovery Primea is a hotel in the Makati area, and it’s a very nice and new hotel. They gave us a huge room.
3:53 Breakfast – We woke up the next morning, hungry and ready for breakfast. It wasn’t a buffet breakfast, but they had a salad bar and a menu that you could order from. I went with the beef wagyu tapa, a bed of rice topped with eggs and steak.
6:54 Restaurant Tapenade – After getting some work done, we went to meet the management of the hotel for lunch at Restaurant Tapenade, the signature restaurant at Discovery Primea, that serves Mediterranean food. The food was all excellent, but I especially enjoyed the stone baked feta cheese dish, and the angus rib eye steak. It was amazing. Read the full blog post:
11:56 Met up with Anton from – Anton has been a friend of mine for a long time, and he’s the one who invited us to Manial to speak at a conference. But in the afternoon we just met up with a class he was teaching.
12:50 Abe Restaurant – After the class we went to Abe Restaurant with Anton, known as one of the top indoor Filipino restaurants in Manila. The food, all of which Anton ordered, was all delicious. The lamb adobo was excellent, and I especially enjoyed the sinigang made with ripe guava and bangus fish. Food was really good, highly recommended.
Disclosure: We were invited to stay at Discovery Primea, so we didn’t pay for our stay. But everything in this video, and all thoughts are my own.
