#CIBO20: Cibo Marks Twenty Years of Real Italian Flavors

The United Kingdom returns Hong Kong to Chinese rule, Microsoft becomes the world's most valuable company, Mike Tyson goes for a bite instead of a punch, Titanic becomes a global blockbuster, a royal fairy tale ends with Princess Diana's tragic accident and Steve Jobs returns to Apple. The year 1997 featured both highs and lows, definitely interesting times... 


It was also that same year when Chef Margarita Fores introduced real and authentic Italian flavors with the opening of Cibo, her take on a modern caffe-paninoteca. Countless servings of Cibo's very own antipasti, zuppe, insalate, paste, pizze, secondi platti, dolci, and bevande became a special part of our daily routine, satisfying and nourishing our appetites and warming the heart with each visit. Twenty years later, Cibo remains as popular as ever, with even more good things yet to come.

Home Again...at Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen.

Finally, Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen comes to the north...


...and you're home again to classic, comforting and homestyle Italian flavors. Ever since my first time at Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen and Nonna's Pasta & Pizzeria at Nuvali, I've always hoped that they would expand to the north one day. Apparently, that was all in the pipeline, with new branches in UP Town Center, Ayala Malls Vertis North, and Ayala Malls The 30th in Pasig City. Mama Lou's Italian Kitchen is now much closer to home...

One More Bowl: Sweeter This Time Around at Cafe Sweet Inspirations

Back then, it was all the rage. Bowl after bowl, it was a culinary trend that defined an era of consumerism with more bang for the buck. Years later, it's still a deal that's pretty much hard to resist. The popularity of the Mongolian barbecue buffet may have waned these past few years, and few of the restaurants built around the concept remains. But somehow, the concept still works. And it's definitely sweeter this time around with one more bowl...at Cafe Sweet Inspirations.


For over twenty years, Cafe Sweet Inspirations has served bowl after bowl of their signature Mongolian Rice Bowls along Katipunan Avenue, and the long lines for the buffet continue to reflect the enduring popularity of this iconic establishment. And it still tastes as good as my first ever bowl so many years ago...
