Located in the stylish Akara Bangkok, Viva Filipinas serves mouthwatering, authentic Filipino fare perfect for family style dining. We always enjoy Filipino food when we visit the beautiful country, so were very excited to come across an authentic restaurant while staying in Bangkok. Their focus is on Filipino cuisine from Luzon, Visayas, & Mindanao and we tried some of our favourite specialities and were introduced to new ones as well.

We loved the traditional decor and display alongside high quality ingredients and mouthwatering generous dishes. The venue is set out for a lively ambiance and allows for live music performances alongside long tables which would easily host fun events or dinner parties. Filipino food is best when shared so make sure to bring friends and family so you can try a variety of the delectable menu.

Recommended dishes off the menu included the "Pastel de Lengua" An authentic Filipino dish cooked with beef tongue served in a creamy mushroom sauce, the "Sizzling Bulalo" Twisted classic bulalo served in a sizzling plate topped with creamy mushroom sauce, the "Embutido" A Filipino-style meatloaf made from ground pork, carrots, raisins and green peas rolled with boiled egg and sausage, the "Pinaputok na bangus" Grilled milkfish stuffed with tomatoes, onion and ginger served with soy sauce, chili and calamansi, the "Bangus Sisig" Crispy milkfish seasoned with soy sauce, ginger, red and green bell peppers served in sizzling plate and the "Lechon belly" Roasted rolled pork belly seasoned with herbs and spices and served with pickled papaya.

A truly fun and unique dining experience at the heart of Bangkok.

A safe family layover at Singapore Changi Airport with Aerotel Singapore

Travel has changed a lot since we were on our last International flight in March 2020, and with children we were naturally worried about the new process and hygiene standards throughout our journey. We were so happy to find Aerotel at Singapore Changi Airport for our long layover ensuring not only did our family stay safe and comfortable but we were ready for the next leg of our journey well fed and rested. As soon as we disembarked our plane a member of the Aerotel team were there to greet us at the gate. We did not have to line up in crowded groups or go to any transit zones but were transported by buggy immediately from gate to hotel check-in. The check-in process was quick and easy and before we knew it we were in the comfort of our family room ready for a good night’s sleep. The spacious room incorporated two large bedrooms, full bathroom, and cozy lounge. The room included a complimentary meal for each of us including Kid’s Meal options which were a huge hit with our children. When it was time for our flight the next morning, the lovely team gave us a wake-up call and escorted us by buggy directly to our gate. There is no safer way to have a layover than at Aerotel. The service was informative and helpful and being able to sleep, eat, and relax in the comfort of our room while waiting for our next flight was essential when travelling with young children. Highly recommended for families who are travelling through Singapore.
