MANILA, Philippines – Mango Tree Restaurant, the superb Thai resto owned by the Teng family at Fort Global City High Street, hosted a bon voyage dinner for my family’s trip to Europe.

Mango Tree is a global Thai resto-franchise that is popular in London. UK celebrities such as Jimmy Choo, Emma Noble, Gabrielle and others frequently visit its flagship store at Harrod’s. It has branches in Bangkok, London and Doha, and recently opened its doors to Manila.

The Teng family, the people behind the fashion retail brands Maldita and Mental, acquired the franchise for the Philippines and opened several branches in the Metro.

It was an intimate dinner attended by close friends and family such as the regal congresswoman and former first lady Madame Imelda Marcos, congressman Dodong Mandanas, dance-sport Queen Becky Garcia, wellness icon Cory Quirino, Sonny Tanchanco, Berna Lomotan, Geena Zablan, Mari Lacson, Ronnie Tanchanco and other guests.

The highlight of the night was an early birthday song arranged by Karen Tanchanco-Caballero, Mango Tree’s Marketing girl for John Gaddi who will be vacationing with us.

The Mango Tree team prepared a set menu for the evening that consisted of all their specialties. I specifically enjoyed their Thai spring rolls, Thai beef salad and their refreshing pomelo salad.
