My teammates have been raving non-stop about the Buttermilk Fried Chicken at Kettle in Shangri-la Mall, so I wasted no time and dropped by one afternoon to taste the famous fried chicken for myself. We didn’t really linger and order a lot of other dishes, since we only had one dish on our agenda. We did have enough time to whet the appetite with a serving of their clam chowder soup before the main event.

Le Petit Souffle french restaurant makati

One afternoon, Kat, Phya, and I decided to grab lunch post-event at Le Petit Souffle, a French-Japanese restaurant in Century City Mall in Makati. I wasn’t familiar with the place before our visit that day, so I did not know what to expect, except that it was highly recommended by Phya and highly anticipated by Kat, two people whose recommendations I trust. We made our way to the third floor of the mall and found the restaurant in no time.
