Dining Delights: Our Tatler Friends Talk About Their Favourite Restaurants

We ask some of our favourite well-travelled gourmands where they fancy a bite both here and abroad

STEPHANIE ZUBIRI-CRESPI:  “On our last Paris trip we discovered a new favourite in this classic gem of a bistro: Chez Allard (in the photo). It’s like stepping back in time—uneven medieval flooring and walls, old paintings paired with sterling silver, and excellent service. The cuisine is drenched in glorious French butter where you can get amazing classics like frogs’ legs, escargot, and roast chicken. But the absolute highlight are the pommes de terre grenailles!”

Chez Michel

ERWAN HEUSSAFF: “Locally, Lugawan Sa Tejeros. I don’t get to go out to eat much so when I do, I want it to be something comforting. This place makes my favourite Goto in the city. Chez Michel (in the photo), a Breton bistro in the heart of Paris, France serves all my favourite dishes from my dad’s hometown.”

PATXI ELIZALDE: “Arzak (in the photo) in San Sebastián, where my family is from, purposely lost his 3-star Michelin ranking so that he could serve food in a more down-to-earth, traditional manner using local ingredients. Some of the best meals I’ve had are from there. Locally, Sala Bistro, best service in town; SAGANA for simple, down-to-earth food and a homey atmosphere (Marc Aubry is always very accommodating); and Mecha Uma—different, creative, memorable.”

Milky Way Café

PEPPER TEEHANKEE:  “My two favourite Filipino restaurants in Manila are Toyo Eatery (definitely my go-to place for Filipino food) and Milky Way (in the photo) just for their to-die-for baby crispy pata and still unparalleled lechon kawali. I will never fail to go back to Burnt Ends in Singapore, Paste in Bangkok, and Otto e Mezzo Bombana in Hong Kong.”

BEN WINTLE: “I fancy a Sunday brunch at Trisara in Phuket, Thailand. Here in the Philippines, I would say Wildflour (in the photo)—the chicken wings and burger are my favourites.”

The Pig and Palm

CARLA YEUNG-MCKOWEN: “I’m a fan of being able to see the chefs in action or be able to converse with them, so I would say open plan kitchens with counter seating are great. At home, you can fi nd that at Soba Kamakura and The Pig and Palm (in the photo). Abroad, my obvious fave is Chef Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social. He always makes it a special experience for his guests.”
