( If you'd been dining out here in the Metro in the early-to-mid 2000s, your restaurant bucketlist was likely topped by the establishment known as Lolo Dad's. An icon in Malate for their stellar fine-dining fare, they were arguably the restaurant that opened many a Manila-dweller's eyes to the possibilites that food can take in the hands of culinary genius Chef Ariel Manuel. Lolo Dad's sadly closed their doors in 2013, and though Manuel went on to open Bistro Manuel in 2016 the latter would also close down in February this year. But not all is lost. If you've been missing the award-winning chef's cooking, you'll want to bookmark the next two weekends on your calendar as Chef Manuel is popping up on selected dates at Makati dining spot One World Kitchen.
