    Cover Story: Ramen Restaurants in Manila
    It’s been years since the ramen fever hit Manila. We’ve seen a lot of ramen restaurants enter the scene, and now Manila has become a competitive battleground of the dish, allowing us to have a taste of Japanese comfort food anytime. For all the ramen lovers out there, Philippine Primer presents the best ramen restaurants that should be on your list this year (p4).

    Travel Feature: Inside Cebu, The Queen City of the South
    The Philippines has three cities that can proudly call themselves Metro: Manila, Davao, and the Queen City of the South, Cebu City. All three cities are highly urbanized, yet Cebu has one thing that both Metro Manila and Metro Davao can only dream of: access to the beach that’s less than an hour away. In this feature, we look into the best resorts and hotels in and around Cebu City, take in the sights and sounds of its tourist spots, and indulge in lechon and Cebu’s best ramen houses. (p18)
