I remember Miguel at DLS-CSB SHRIM as a culinary student who loved to rap and sing. I mean he would perform hip hop and do the beatbox!! After his international kitchen stints, he returned to Manila as a very serious and passionate chef.
Miguel still likes to rap, but his rhythm is now expressed in the kitchen. It is as if he is dancing when he cooks. Like a true artist, his unconstrained creativity allows him to constantly change his menu. He likes to play with flavors and textures. Like a song, the components of a dish are meticulously planned to create balance and harmony.
I keep on coming back for the anise pulled pork belly. Another favorite is the grilled fish wahoo. And the pumpkin soup with vanilla ice cream should not be missed!
