At The Table

Manila has fast become a hub for local and international flavor. And of course, behind the flourishing of new concept restaurants are chefs who are leveling up Filipino cuisine or introducing foreign techniques and flavors.

They are the heart of restaurants like Sarsa, Gallery Vask, and Cyma, and the genius behind many food collabs and concepts around the metro. At The Table is a show that celebrates these chefs where they step out of their kitchens and into the spotlight to share their journeys, their food philosophies, and the secrets to their trade.


Get ready to meet Sarsa's Chef JP Anglo, Gallery Vask's Chef Chele Gonzalez, Cyma's Chef Robby Goco, Las Casas Filipinas' Chef Margarita Fores, Scout's Honor's Miko Aspiras, and so much more.

United Plates of America

When we hear the US, the first thing that comes to mind is American food—burgers, pizza, all that oily, guilt-ridden comfort food that we've come to love. But the US is so much more than this. They have a rich and thriving immigrant population that have given birth to restaurants that champion their hometown's cuisine and culture.


Flavors around the world, but made available to the US market—this is the story behind United Plates of America. It's a show for people who love food, and want to know more about the story that goes behind every dish, every cuisine, every culture it represents. The show is hosted by Gary Takle, who makes time to sit with the people behind every restaurant to know their story, how and why they set their shop in the US, and get a glimpse of the authentic flavors and culture they have brought abroad.


Catch premiere episodes every Saturday, 10:30 a.m.
