I’ll be on TV again for an interview for the tv talk show of Prof. Winnie Monsod in GMA NEWS TV “Bawal ang Pasaway kay Mareng Winnie” the show will air tonight at 10pm. I know that the topics discussed in the show are a bit political, but for their mother’s day special, the tv talk show host Prof. Winnie will requested for a lighter topic in observance of mother’s day.
Tonight they will feature about The Aristocrat restaurant, we know that its considered as the oldest resto here in the Philippines, many thanks to the founder of the resto Aling Asiang for bringing this all pinoy food resto to us since 1928. Today the resto is operated by the Reyes clan, the restaurant is doing well and continues to expand in different cities.
Last week while I was on the way to Sampaloc,Quezon for our town fiesta, I received a text sms and Facebook message on my phone, its about an invite for a tv interview about The Aristocrat restaurant, Thanks to the free wifi of the Jac Liner bus, I closed the coordination hours before I lost the mobile signal when I reached the town of Lucban,Quezon. Thanks to Bryan for the fast response and I did fill up that text interview via SMS while the jeep is on the way to the next mountain that covers Sampaloc, Quezon.
They told me that they found my blog about our Southern food trip adventure and Aristocrat resto hopping last month - http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/search/label/aristocrat%20restaurant
We scheduled the tv interview after Labor Day, and I’m glad that there’s no traffic yet in Manila.
We did the tv interview here in The Aristocrat restaurant in Roxas Blvd. Manila.
Ms. Maryjo of the Aristocrat restaurant was there too in one of the private function room, she welcomed me and offered a nice lunch meal and also…yummy cold halo halo!!! omg. it was like heaven after the first sip…it helped me really beat the heat last Friday.
TV interview started…..ok feeling Mikael Daez lang ang peg ko for that day hahaha.
I also ordered this chicken barbeque, one of the original classic of The Aristocrat, I always order this since I was 10 years old.
Did you know that the Aristocrat was the earliest food truck here in the Philippines ? they became a mobile food service before it became a restaurant.

The Aristocrat restaurant in Roxas Blvd Manila.
I didn’t know that they have a special landmark sign infront of the restaurant. I just saw this when I was waiting for a cab to SM MOA.
Its awesome to see this historical landmark at the other side of the street.
