Excerpt from “Makati’s New Bolt-holes” by Margie Francisco and Monica De Leon for InFlight August-September 2010
“Makati City has seen the opening of trendy boutique hotels the past few years, providing great variety for all types of travelers. Shopping and entertainment centers have also expanded to embrace both international designer brands and exciting, new local designer products.”
“Café La Carmela on Jupiter Street offers chicken and pork barbeque dishes, made more special by its dipping sauce of sinamak or traditional vinegar originating from Cebu.”
“Papertrail at Lao Center, Makati, sells journals, note pads, organizers, quirky tote bags and “smencils” or scented pencils, all imported from abroad.”
