Comprising bestsellers from Seda’s flagship property in the cosmopolitan area Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, Metro Manila, the guests will be impressed by the  authentic tastes as well as the creative presentations inspired by Chef Pepe’s exposure to a global audience at the newest modern community in the Philippines, Bonifacio Global City. Chef Pepe is the Executive Chef of Seda BGC.


At Seda Centrio, Chef Pepe has been presenting dishes like Angus beef ribs, crispy sea bass, grilled cedar plank salmon, and osso bucco lamb shanks, plus a new and creative range of desserts that make up a visual feast due to their artistic presentations.

“Remarkably good!” said an enthusiastic diner-one of the many who have given rave reviews for Chef Pepe’s delicious foods. I tried it last night and my personal favorite is the grilled cedar plank salmon. It’s to die for.


According to Chef Pepe, the key is precise timing plus the use of fresh and high-quality ingredients. “This is how we give our dishes that personal touch. We stay true to the original recipe, then leave own imprint by modifying its appearance to enhance its aesthetic appeal.

Have the taste of BGC in a 3-course set lunch at Seda Centrio today until May 29, 2015 featuring options for appetizer and the main course, and a sweet dessert for the finale. More food varieties will be available on the buffet dinner on May 25-30 at the hotel’s Misto Restaurant.


Chef Pepe was formerly connected with an international luxury hotel, a renowned resort and exclusive club. A multi-awarded culinary expert, he has won top honors in prestigious industry competitions including “Best Dessert” in the Manila Black Box Culinary Challenge, “Award for Excellence” in the Cold Meat Platter category of Chefs on Parade and “Bread-baking Champion” in an activity sponsored by the Les Toques Philippines chefs association.
