Manila's 'best restaurants' named  12/03/2010

MANILA, Philippines - The Manila's Best Kept Restaurant Secrets (MBKRS) awards, inspired by the best-selling book of the same title, recognizes this year's most excellent chefs and best dining spots in the metro.

The winners were announced last November 24 in an awarding ceremony at the Enderun Colleges' Culinary Center in Taguig City.

This year's list was a combination of old favorites and newcomers -- from world-renowned fine dining restaurant Antonio's in Tagaytay and the rustic Galileo Enoteca in Mandaluyong to the newly opened L'Incontro Ristorante Italiano in Makati City.

People's Palace in Makati City was, indeed, Manila's favorite culinary destination as it bagged the People's Choice distinction in this year's MBKRS awards.

Chef-owner Antonio Escalante (of Antonio's) received the Best Chef award while Margarita Fores (of Cibo and Lusso) was given the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Sunshine and Rob Pengson were recognized as MBKRS awards' Best Emerging Talent this year for their restaurant, The Goose Station, which won this year's Newcomer restaurant award.
