Meat Overload at Livestock

If you are looking for a big family friendly restaurant, Livestock is one restaurant you should visit!

Though not decorated in a super fancy way, I liked its ambience typical of a steakhouse bar that can seat a lot of people and provides a good family chow down joint!

It is a place where the food is finger licking good! Livestock specializes in ordinary pork meat into some spectacular gastronomic fares.

Adobong Quezo Pizza (P 395.00) comes in a crunchy, thin crust with heaps of "kesong puti", sliced olives, minced meat, cherry tomato halves and greens.  It's like having an Arugula Salad on a crusty cheese dough!

Spiced Pig Tail (P 280.00) is a great tasting appetizer to pique the tastebuds for a fun-biting crunch experience that follows.  It is like biting into flavorful mini "bagnets". The pig tail was deep fried to perfection!

Livestock's Crackling Pork belly is the bomb! It is a boneless lechon! The pork belly is infused with herb flavors and roasted until the skin comes out red and desired crunchiness is achieved.  Perfect for dipping in the spicy vinegar or homemade liver sauce!

And you wouldn't want to miss the Crispy Pata! This a generous serving of pork leg delicacy has been deep fried to a crunch! It was well-cooked that the inside meat was tender and so soft! It was easy to cut through into the entire pork and divide it into bite size pieces using just a popsicle! Isn't that amazing?

Seafood Laksa (P 290.00)is one delicious soup that would go well with Livestock main dishes. The Livestock version of this popular spicy Asian noodle soup is superb! The vermicelli, prawns, mussels, squid, shredded herbs combine perfectly with the coconut milk to make a tasty soup blend. It was so good that I help myself to hefty servings.

The Bacon Ice Cream Sandwich is plain vanilla ice cream on French Toast. It is sprinkled with bacon strips to blend a little saltiness to the sweet dessert taste.

Livestock also offers all sorts of imported beer, wine and cocktails to go with their budget-friendly fares. Head on to Livestock to chill out after work or dine in with family on weekends.

Amid the optimistic economic performance of the Philippines, especially in the tourism front, Marriott Hotel Manila’s expansion includes building the country's largest hotel convention center as well as increasing its room count to 570 Marriott Grand Ballroom is a strategic addition to the country’s event facilities as the Philippines prepares to host a series of prestigious international events between 2015 and 2017 . Next year, the country will host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings.

The development includes the important task of recruiting more than 200 regular employees to deliver the hotel's renowned service. To handle the task of recruitment and training employees, as well as make sure the entire organization is able to surpass guest expectations, the hotel has chosen a former member of the Marriott International team, Marcia Garza, to lead the Human Resources Department.

Marcia brings with her an invaluable practical understanding of the Marriott organization, having come from a 12-year stint in one of the group’s former hotels, Renaissance Makati. Prior to her new appointment, she was a senior HR manager of SMX Convention Center. Her knowledge of the Manila market, pre-opening experience, and cross-functional background in the hotel industry will support the hotel's success in implementing its development plan. She will also ensure that the hotel lives up to the brand's commitment to its employees.

Meanwhile, Kate Ona has been promoted to the newly created position Director of Revenue Strategy from her former position of Director of Revenue Management. As the hotel adds more income-generating space, the post was created to expand the revenue discipline and thereby broaden the scope and analysis and strategic planning involved in this area. Kate is a pride of the company for implementing revenue strategies that made Marriott Hotel Manila among the hotel chain’s best performers in Southeast Asia. She will not only be responsible for maximizing revenues in Manila but will also take on oversight of future projects within the Philippines and continuing task forces throughout the region.

Alcohol-infused fare at Tipsy Beans

At Tipsy Beans, you can eat, drink, and be merry! According to Stephen Alvin Gueco (who co-owns it with his brother, Patrick Lorenz), Tipsy Beans is not your usual coffee shop as it incorporates liquor in its menu offerings.

Tipsy Beans is proof that booze has a true home in the kitchen. While alcohol evaporates away during cooking, it gives dishes that extra pleasant flavor.

The Delectable Sisig Triangles with chips is one of Tipsy Beans’ signature sandwiches that you wouldn’t want to miss. Biting in its crunchy bread gives a perfect delight for sisig aficionados. I love its combination of spice and liquor! Potato hips were light and crispy.

Beer Battered Fish Fillet (P 80.00) is fish fillet altered to fit a malt snob's tastebuds.

Spicy Tuna Pesto (P 120.00)is my favorite. The booze gives its sauce an unexpected extra taste that is flavorful.

Drunken Hungarian Sausage and Mushroom Pasta is penne pasta in a light cream sauce with sauteed sausage and mushroom slices. It gives a tangy flavor from the liquor used.
Adobo and Chessy Adobo

Potato Wedges and Potato Nuggets offer that perfect bite while waiting for your order or while chatting away with your friends over hot or cold drink concoctions. It comes with 2 dips, the savory cheese and garlic dip.

Potato Nuggets paired with Irish Cream on Coffee Rocks

Voot Beer is a must try!

Tipsy Beans is a good way to kick up your next party platter. This cozy place can accommodate 30 to 35 individuals on a full day. For only P 4,000 (consumable) the venue may be reserved for intimate gatherings or meetings.
