SCENE CITY| White House, one of Tatler’s best

THE WHITE House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge was listed in Philippine Tatler’s Best Restaurant Guide 2017.

Now on its 13th year, the Philippine Tatler Best Restaurant Guide was recently launched with 300 guests composed of restaurants, hoteliers, top chefs and gourmands.

Cathy Binag, Chef and Proprietor of The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge expressed exhilaration over the award and being noticed by the country’s foremost society magazine but at the same time some apprehension in having to keep up and maintain the prestige and excellence that her restaurant has been known for since it started and gained the clientele and customers that inspired her to create the ambiance and give the service her restaurant is known for.

Cathy says she feels the award has challenged her to exert more effort in maintaining the quality of service and especially in the meals she serves. She counts herself as an exception in that she does not follow the trend that other restaurants are practicing. She keeps her original style of service and food preparations, no matter what the fad is. She values her individuality and feels that it is one of the assets that made her one of the recipients of the award which came as a complete surprise.

Sharing her blessings with others is something she has promised herself to do. Her plans include establishing a foundation for the women and children survivors of sexual abuse. Included in her plans is teaching the members of this foundation to make a special brand of sorbet container and provide them a livelihood in the production of the container. Giving back to the community is a fulfilling undertaking.

On top of this award and the many blessings she has received, she says she believes in being humble and thankful for the opportunities that life has brought her since she has stayed in Davao City, being from Manila. She has opened a school for young designers in Manila where she gives support to those who go to school and dream of success in the field of designing.
