A conversation with TMG co-founder Abba Napa, who stands by saying people matter most in the world of restaurants
A recap of 2017 in Manila’s food scene in the Inquirer had a space dedicated to The Moment Group. Clinton Palanca writes, “2017 was also the year in which The Moment Group went from a growing restaurant group to a full-fledged force to be reckoned with. It has a finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist, a sophisticated design team, and a dynamic marketing team.” We can’t wait to keep this up in 2018, and beyond.
What do you get when you mix Manam flavors with Christmas? This ube bibingka roll, which you can make before the 25th comes around.
Last October, we celebrated our FIFTH birthday. We’ve come a very long way since our small beginnings, and many have played a big part in The Moment Group’s journey. To mark this very special occasion, we invited all to join in on our month-long birthday celebration!
DO YOU HAVE A MOMENT
As we turned 5, we wanted to thank all who have been part of our food-filled journey by giving away P2000 gift certificates to 20 lucky patrons! All they had to do was follow us on Facebook and Instagram, share a photo of their favorite memory in any of our restaurants, use the hashtag #TMG5, and tag a friend they want to share the prize with!
BGC x TMG FOOD CRAWL
Our first restaurant opened up, quickly followed by another, and another after that, until it grew to 27 different shops. On our fifth year, we celebrated by going back to where it all began: BGC. This special BGC x TMG food crawl gave you a taste of brands we’ve built in the last couple of years, which are all luckily a stone’s throw away from each other in these parts. And this was just the start of the celebration!
The most exciting in our birthday month celebration was the P55 Specials. Just think, a week-long chance to get all your favorite TMG dishes for just P55! Here’s a look at the dishes at P55:
• October 16, Monday – 8Cuts (Grassfed 1/4 Cheeseburger) and Bank Bar (Martini and Negroni)
• October 17, Tuesday – Ooma (California Taco-Maki)
• October 18, Wednesday – Manam (Small House Crispy Sisig)
• October 19, Thursday – Din Tai Fung (5pcs Pork Xiaolongbao) and Mecha Uma (Camo Onigiri)
• October 20, Friday – Linguini Fini (8-inch Cheese Pizza), and Phat Pho (Small Pho Bo), Mess Hall (Chocolate Chip Cookie)
We only turn five once, so we gave only the best things from TMG on this very special occasion!
