My 4 hours with Anthony Bourdain around ‘gritty’ Manila—with ‘No Reservations’

  It has been 10 years now, yet during our culinary walks around Binondo, we still get the occasional question, "How was he?" "He" was chef, writer and newsmaker Anthony Bourdain, who took his life last June 8. It was a decade ago when I had the rarest and most fortuitous privilege of giving Bourdain his first taste of the Manila culinary scene. To the multitude of fans, some of whom had to drive from Manila to Pampanga where a segment was shot, catching a glimpse of the man was enough. I had more than a glimpse. I had a whole day of eating out with him, and the irony of it was that I wasn't even a big fan. I had not read any of his books.

‘‘Sisig’ is everything I love about food’—dining with Anthony Bourdain in Manila

  Sisig is everything I love about food," Anthony Bourdain told me before digging into his dalandan sorbet. The icy palate cleanser eclipsed the previous courses he politely refused to touch: a salmon caviar timbale with shrimp-pomelo salsa, followed by a decorative plate of pan-roasted duck breast. "Sizzling pork with all that good fatty, rubbery, crispy texture? Sisig is just wonderful. And it goes well with beer!" It was Oct. 25, 2008. We were at a private dinner in Pasay City, where I was fortunate enough to land a place at the table. While most of my dinner companions, a mix of foodie nerds and fan boys bordering on the obnoxious, were engrossed in the conver...Keep on reading: ‘‘Sisig’ is everything I love about food’—dining with Anthony Bourdain in Manila.....»»

Sandiganbayan orders release of Revilla from detention

MANILA, Philippines --- The Sandiganbayan First Division ordered the release of former Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. from detention, as it approved his posting of bail hours after his acquittal from plunder charges. With this, the warrant of arrest it issued against Revilla last June 19, 2014 was "recalled and further declared no force and effect". However, a copy of the decision should first reach the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), before Revilla is allowed to leave the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City where he has been detained since 2014. Revilla earlier posted a bail of P480,000, or P30,000 for each of the 16 cas...Keep on reading: Sandiganbayan orders release of Revilla from detention.....»»
