Northern Living

Come Together


We’ve spent the year exploring the North, checking out the newest restaurant­s and shops, and discoverin­g the interestin­g homes of artists, designers, and architects. Now, as the year comes to a close, it’s time for us to wind down, too.

In this issue, we’ve put together an ideal wishlist to fill your homes, bookshelve­s, and closets. But more than gifts, we also take a look at what many may consider the star of the holidays: food.

In the spirit of coming together with loved ones, we check out a new restaurant set inside a 1970s home, helmed by chef Tatung Sarthou, along with a bakery whose take on sweets is set to change the way we look and crave desserts in the coming year. We also dissect our noche buena menus to know once and for all how to distinguis­h our classic Filipino stews.

But before we get caught up in the holiday rush, let’s remember the true spirit of the season. We’ve put together a list of organizati­ons you can check out and give back to, be it in the form of clothes, food, or even volunteeri­ng time.
