PODIUM EATS: Meet Fresh and Putien Are Now in Manila!
Had a gastronomic feast yesterday with friends when we visited Podium to check out two newly opened restaurants, both very popular in their countries! Worth the travel time and extra pounds gained. 👌
A Taiwanese tea and desserts place just opened at the Podium, featuring delectable milk tea selections and dessert bowls with huge serving sizes good for sharing. Make sure to try their Signature Ice Grass Jelly (Php 220) and Shaved Ice (Php 320) topped with taro balls, mochi, fresh herbal jelly, etc. They look like halo-halo, but less the sugar! Meanwhile, their milk tea might be my new fave, more tea than milk or sugar in taste.
Everything tastes new to me, so so good!
Meanwhile, a Michelin Star resto just opened in Manila, featuring legit Fujian cuisine from Singapore. Putien is the name of a coastal suburb in Fujian, China (the founder's hometown)--but Putien the restaurant offers delicacies that are beyond what we expect from a typical Chinese restaurant.
All the dishes we ordered last night are fresh and very tasty, they really went well with Putien's signature chili sauce and Cabbage Rice. Check out photos below for some of my vegetarian recommendations. Btw, love the ambiance too!
Meet Fresh and Putien are both located at the 5th floor of The Podium, ADB Ave., Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City. I may live 2 hours away from Ortigas, but my cravings for A++ food might lead me back to Podium again and again! 😁
