Bonifacio Global City continues to be the mecca of the food scene in Metro Manila with its sprawling food establishments left and right. The consistent increase in offices and households makes it even more attractive.
A number of restaurants in BGC serve quality meat, thanks to a partnership with the U.S.
Meat Export Federation (USMEF). Last November 21, they launched an event to highlight this worthwhile collaboration. Three restaurants, in particular, were highlighted- Fireside, Jin Joo, and Mimi & Bros.
The event was dubbed Five Star Night, a showcase of local chefs and their specialties utilizing world-renowned US Beef and US Pork.
The event was opened by Mr. Morgan Haas, the Agricultural Counselor of the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service. He proudly shares that the system set for U.S. Meat products is one of the best in the world, with safety and universal quality guaranteed.
Chef Sau del Rosario of 25 Seeds and Cafe Fleur, also shared a few words on his experience with US Meat. For him, the marbling, taste, and overall high-quality of US Meat makes his best selling Crispy Pork Belly and Truffled Macadamia Kare-Kare even more irresistible.
The attendees were then treated to three meat dishes prepared by the partner restaurants. First up was the Slow Cooked US Pork Rib with Pumpkin Puree and Apple Chip by Chef Edward Bugia of Mimi & Bros.
Next was the Galbi Jim by Chef JM Libron of Jin Joo, who explained why US Beef Ribs is a must for a tender Korean stew.
Last was Fireside’s House Burger by Chef Gigi Canlas, who shares that their burgers are made with fine US Beef Patties and grilled to perfection on a woodfire grill. She adds that the burger was only seasoned with just salt.
