NINYO Fusion Cuisine & Wine Lounge

Post Content


Escape from all the metro madness and relax in the cozy intimate ambiance of NINYO Fusion Cuisine & Wine Lounge, where you can now experience Chef Niño’s artistic fusion of Asian and European Cuisines with 100 of the world’s great wines.

There are not very many Filipino fine dining restaurant that I’ve heard of, and this place gave diners that feel of luxe that you can get from a fancy restaurant. Cozy, intimate ambiance, well-trained and very attentive servers, food as an artwork on a plate and exquisite taste — that’s NINYO Fusion Cuisine & Wine Lounge.



I’m such a sucker for complimentary breads and pastries esp when they are really good and theirs is one of those that you can really munch on while waiting for your order.

His and Hers: Food On The Table

IMG_6814{ Hers: Sauteed Seafood Medley with Wasabi Coconut Sauce Php680 }
Sauteed prawns, squid, tuna, salmon, manila clams, New Zealand mussels, and shitake mushrooms, drizzled with wasabi and coconut creme sauce, served with steamed Japanese rice.
My photo didn’t give it justice. I enjoyed this very much and the wasabi lent a spicy taste but this dish ain’t fiery hot.

Served with grilled Japanese rice, grilled leeks with miso, tomato and onion.
Whenever B doesn’t know what to order, his default is chicken. This one did not disappoint. It’s Teriyaki but not just any other Teriyaki chicken I’ve tasted. The concept of the grilled rice is interesting too.

We had a nice, pretty quick dinner date here. The diners are well-behaved and quiet just like in any other fancy restaurant, I suppose. It’s just us who were a bit loud since we are enjoying taking photos of each other and the place and the food. Poor thing!

Aside from the seats inside, they also have cottages outside which are perfect for bigger groups who don’t want to contain their giggles and laughter inside, and since it’s open I suppose smoking is allowed outside. Maybe it’s good to note for smokers who are foodie too.


IMG_6826If you want a quiet, down time date with your special someone, NINYO is a good place to try. If you are from Quezon City, you are in luck! It’s tucked along Loyola Heights, very near Katipunan area.


I hope you have your romantic date, too! *kisses*

I love the romantic, sensuous feel of yellow lights. The little bulbs that flicker like the stars in the night. The peaceful, calming effects it creates — truly just what I needed every night.


Sharing you a glimpse of my sanctuary. My refuge. When things don’t go my way, when plans didn’t happen as planned, when people are rowdy and tough as Biff — I just have to enter my fortress, lift a page of a book or turn on the tube. This is one of my happy places. *smiles*

There are more details I want to incorporate and I am looking forward to accomplishing it soon for a more relaxing and enjoyable stay in my room. *wink*

How is Tuesday treating you?

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.”

IMG_7187{ Key Lime Pie Ice Cream Php240 }

This might be THE most perfect Monday post — my Sunshine Kitchen experience (to shoo away Monday blues)! I will start backwards by sharing this amazingly delicious ice cream for dessert — Key Lime Pie Ice Cream. I didn’t know what flavor it was so when it was served I thought “just another vanilla ice cream” given that it’s white… BUT to my surprise, it’s lime PLUS the texture of the crushed crackers (I suppose) blended perfectly well with the soft but not-easy-to-melt ice cream. It’s such a good play on the texture and taste. Truly the most “pasabog” surprise for me at Sunshine Kitchen.

I “roam” around while waiting for our festivity to start and here is how this foodie place looks like.


They have a sleek bar. And loads of beers to choose from. Too bad I missed to take up-close photo of the beers but we might see them again in person. Date soon, my B?




Now let the foodie virtual tour begin. We started with three appetizers and here are two that stuck with me, especially this one. It’s deliciously paired with their freshly baked bread rolls. AND this BREAD ROLLS – ugh! Seriously delicious!

This is another reason I need to go back. It stayed perfectly crunchy even if it was just sitting on the table, waiting its turn to be devoured. I’m such a carnivore! No wonder why I’m healthy-chubby-looking.
