This year I’ll be kicking off my “When in Manila” series. 2017 was a year procrastination, but not for 2018. My New Year’s resolution is to post in this blog every two weeks or once a month at the least. So, let’s get this ball rolling!
To start off my “When in Manila,” series I’ll be giving a review on Yes Please. Situated at the Palace Manila in Bonifacio Global City between hot clubs, Revel at the Palace and Palace Pool Club, Yes Please is a club for people who are so done with clubbing. Yes, it’s for aging millennials that have outgrown their hard partying days. If you want to sit back, be casual, and zip on a cocktail with some moderately volumed 90’s music, this place is just for you.
After opening last year, this anti-club zen has been one of my go-to places in BGC. It gives off a New York feel with its East Village gentrified dive bar look.
Their menu is a weekend must-have as co-owner and Chef, Erwan Heusaff, whips up some tropical inspired signature cocktails and asian dishes.
Girl Scout Colada
A piña colda with a twist! It still has that familiar tropical taste, but topped with a torched marshmallow foam to bring back those memories when you were in summer camp having s’mores and roasting marshmallows by the fire.
A tiki drink that gets its tropical vibe from a mix of mango and melon juice mixed with Mezcal which sets off the fruitiness of the drink with its cinnamon-like spice.
Asian Curry Noodles
Loaded with bokchoy, minced beef curry, kimchi, fried onions, mushroom and leeks topped on stir-fried noodles. It will be a frequent weekend craving once you try this dish.
Yes Please! is located at 11th Avenue Corner 38th Street, Uptown Bonifacio, Taguig City
Open Monday – Saturday 6 p.m to 3 a.m
