Life has been extra crazy for the GOppets these past few weeks. We’re in the process of sorting, boxing, clearing, moving, and settling in from the old abode to our new home sweet home. Who knew moving would be this tedious?! And I have wonderful angels to help me paha, what more if I were left to my own devices. Maloloka talaga ako, it would probably take me a year to make the full transition if it were not for their help. <3 #beyondgrateful
We were able to finally move in physically last week after 6 looong months since we acquired the house -with still plenty of things left to do, shift around, hang, and store. I promise, a separate post with full report will follow, just lemme catch my breath hehe. Ang maglipat ay di biro, and it will take a LOT of incentive & convincing powers from Kap & the kids to make me move again any time in the next 20 years, lol.
To celebrate our big move, the GOppets blew off steam with a much deserved buffet lunch at SAGE BESPOKE GRILL in Makati Shangri-La Manila just last Sunday. We are big fans of Circles, Shang Palace, and Inagiku because of the sumptuous & wide variety of spread fit for kings & queens. (As you know, we are heavy eaters so buffet is a must for most celebratory meals.) But this is actually our first to try out Sage Bespoke Grill as a family. Thank goodness for Sage Bespoke Grill‘s NEW Sunday Grill Buffet created by new Chef de Cuisine, Eric Weidmann, woohoo! \m/ We now have a new favorite resto to add to our list!
Savor unlimited rounds of grilled goodness and house specialties at Sage Bespoke Grill‘s Sunday Grill Buffet. A limitless fête of refreshing salads, grilled premium quality meat and seafood, and delectable desserts for Php 2,680++.

A well-deserved Sundate with my hunny who has been working really hard, leaving no stone unturned, and making our new house into another home sweet home. <3
Sage Bespoke Grill is a restaurant with a new dining concept showcasing premium wine, superior steaks, seafood and bestselling comfort food in a relaxed setting amid the bustle of the city.
The spread isn’t as extensive or as varied as the ones in Circles or Inagiku, BUT, everything that matters is there, believe me.
Started off my sumptuous lunch with an out of this world Caesar salad. Can you smell that chunky cheese all the way to your laptop? Lol. I swear I can. I’m practically drooling as I blog! ;)
Now this is how Caesar salad should be done -cheese, cheese, and more cheese please? With lots of crispy bacon bits & croutons, served with a smile! Warm hospitality is always a welcome bonus.
Voila, my happy & oh so colorful starter plate. And yes, this is just the beginning!
Normally, I shy away from steak tartare. But hey, we’ll be exploring lots of foreign cities soon so I’m training my palate to be more adventurous & not just stick to comfort food and favorites. ;P
And of course, there’s plenty of room in my tummy for the freshest catch.
Love-sters extravaganza! You’ll definitely have a hard time keeping me away from this station.
My pescatarean gals are happy with the freshest, giant seafood selection at Sage Bespoke Grill! And as you can see, so was I. ;)
The GOppets taking a break from the busyness that is life.
Sage Bespoke Grill redefines casual dining with traditional grilled meat and seafood specialties cooked in a Josper Grill which combines a grill and an oven in a single machine. Your chosen dish can be grilled to perfection without the risk of overcooking -preserving its juiciness and texture to make it perfectly balanced for the palate.
Perfectly grilled Tomahawk Rib Eye. <3 I wanted to bring the whole bone in strip to my table. But my mom taught me to share. ;P
Top Sirloin Steak. And just like that, my Sunday was made. Fueled for more weeks ahead of settling in & making the transition.
I have always loved pairing my meats with cheese.
Now this is perfection, enough to make me cry tears of happiness, really. Carnivorous me is very VERY happy with my tomahawk & sirloin plate with oooohlalaa cheese! <3
Apparently, Kap didn’t get the memo on sharing, teehee.
As if the meat & seafood selection at the buffet weren’t enough, lo & behold, we were visited by charming men bearing even more gifts of beef, pork, shrimp & the most tender, juicy, tasty lapu-lapu! Truly a sunday well spent at Sage Bespoke Grill.
To those who, like me, think Sage is your run of the mill resto bar that can only be enjoyed at night time in the company of your drinking buddies -or date nights out with your special someone, you’d be happy to know that Sage Bespoke Grill now offers Sunday Grill Lunch for the whole family for only 2,650++ php/person. Get your fill at the buffet table for everything else, then choose one from Sage’s featured dishes from these offerings, served cocotte from the kitchen: Mini chicken & truffle pot pie with puff pastry crust, Cooked egg woth morels & green asparagus, Lobster ravioli with shellfish cream & baby spinach, or Scallop & clam risotto with leeks & champagne sauce.
If you’re still not sold on the Sunday Lunch Buffet at Sage Bespoke Grill, then let this dessert sampler speak to you. . Just like that, I’m head over heels in love with Sage! But wait, don’t forget to ask for the cooked on the spot crepe flambe!
Must have: Crepe Flambe with Mangoes and Caramel Passion Sauce -by no less than the restaurant manager himself. #whatisVIP
Now this is one bittersweet flambe.. and memory, I’d like to keep.
And just so you know how happy I was with the Sunday Grill Buffet at Sage Bespoke Grill, here’s proof of my bulging tummy! I can hardly see my toes! ;))
Like I always say, happy wife = happy life. ;) And I’m belly belly happy. That certainly makes a happy life for the GOppets. ;)
I officially declare Sundays as my most favorite day of the week. Honey, can we do this regularly pretty please???
And now, back to the grind & the challenges of moving. Hopefully, we can be 100% settled in before we leave in a couple of weeks. Chika soon! :-*
