CHEF NEXT DOOR WITH CHEF JONAS NG — Not your typical cooking show



Look at that view!

Finally, after a very looooong time I was able to try and see Le Jardin and I must say it’s so pretty and perfect for intimate celebrations! I love the place itself, the ambiance is impeccably fine. It’s a garden-themed restaurant at the Penthouse of W Fifth Building. How I wish I just live in BGC so I could go here everyday.. * A mini room beside the entrance caught my attention, I don’t smoke but I find their smoking area so cute! You have to see it for yourself. *

Now, let’s talk about what happened at the event. We met the funnest Chef Next Door – Chef Jonas Ng.


For those who are not familiar with him, let me give you a brief background. Chef Jonas is the Head Chef and Owner of Huat Pot Hotpot Restaurant in Greenhills and Le Jardin in Bonifacio Global City. Let’s join him as 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. See how Chef Jonas bounces back from realistic kitchen struggles like lack of time, space and budget by doing his Chef Ninja Moves. Definitely not your typical cooking show! 🙂

We were able to try out Chef Jonas’ creations. Rillette de Porc Tortilla Empanada, Rillette de Porc Sandwich, Rillete de Porc Salad.

Choose your poison. UGH I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! (Spot the Lechon!)
