Gregory Guy, 27, went toĀ Le Cordon Bleu in Paris for his culinary training. After that, he worked forĀ Jean-Georges in New York for a year. Then, he went back home and continued to pursue his passion. At first, he was making cheesecakes and selling it on social media websites like Facebook. Then, he decided to open a restaurant of his own, and thus, “Cheesecakes by Guy” was born.

According to Greg, they don’t use any canned ingredients to maintain the quality of their food. Instead, everything is chosen by hand. He said, “You dont need fancy and expensive ingredients; just use the proper ones”.Ā He has a passion for cooking eggs properly – something he learned in New York. He said most Filipinos can’t cook eggs properly, which is why he uses an immersion circulator to consistently cook his eggs.

Cheesecakes by GuyĀ has a nice chill vibe inside, perfect for romantic dinners, readers, or anyone who enjoys very good food. They have an excellent service and a disciplined staff that was personally trained by Greg. Apparently, during the hiring process, Greg didn’tĀ look at their school too much. He paid more attention to their listening skills. According to Greg, theirĀ menu is very basic, but also the best that they can provide. He quoted, “The simplest things are the hardest to make”. TheĀ prices are just right, too.

The salmon is cold smoked in the Philippines. It’s chewy, doesn’t flake, and isn’t too salty. The eggs, of course, are cooked just right. As promised, everything tastes fresh. Greg uses whole wheat pandesal instead of english muffins for this. As a salmon guy, I recommend this 100%.
