The Group Entertainment together with Lifestyle Network channel welcomes another feisty, hot character on the block this July. Say hello to the Chef Next Door – Chef Jonas Ng.

Chef Jonas, head chef and owner of Huat Pot Hotpot Restaurant in Greenhills and Le Jardin in Bonifacio Global City, takes us on a culinary journey to the food industry by showing you the faces, places, and stories behind the food industry that we are only starting to discover. He shares the easiest and most practical ways to cook restaurant recipes, some tricks of the trade and chef hacks that he has learned over ten years of working inside a high-pressure, solution-oriented professional kitchen.

Each episode teaches viewers how to come up with restaurant the quality output from modern urban limitation and just like in real-life kitchens, be prepared to see how Chef Jonas bounces back from realistic kitchen struggles like lack of time, space, and budget by doing his #chefninjamoves as he “MacGyver” his way to coming up with creative and informative solutions in every kitchen crisis he is thrown with.comical, adventurous, and passionate. Be prepared to fall in love with ….. or maybe just “friend-zoned” in the Chef Next Door.

The event was filled with fun activities and not to mention great food! I cannot stop eating for the past few months. With all the events I am attending, buffets seem always at present and I can’t resist from indulging in food especially desserts!

Cakes from Karen’s.Kitchen! I can gobble a few slices of cake in one sitting and that’s a skill i’m proud of. Tried each of their super delicious and unique flavored cakes and I felt so hyper from all these sweets.

I wouldn’t miss the ever popular Fog City artisanal Ice Cream!  It was so creamy and milky that I had 1 cup of the calamansi flavor and 2 cups of the Butterscotch Pecan.  Imagine all the food in my stomach and I sensed that its complaining and pleading  for me to stop but my brain is contradicting the damn feeling.

There’s also the Baguio crafted beer from these two cool looking studs. Tried both flavor but preferred the light one.

The fun part about the event is that I joined the karaoke contest and sang the Wannabe by Spice Girls. I miss singing really so I thought of putting it to the test again. I didn’t win the grand prize but at least I get to bring home a guacamole chips bowl set!


We all won!!

Of course selfie is required. My chubby cheeky cheeks.

It was a such a memorable afternoon of mingling with all these interesting people that even if I was lacking sleep I still felt so energized.
