Ms. Gee—Wordplay on MSG—is the New Restaurant Brought to You from Lan Kwai in Katipunan

April 18, 2019

Marco Baluyut and Justin Baradas are not new to the restaurant scene. With a thriving speakeasy in Katipunan called Lan Kwai, the pair partnered with Milka Romero of Sushi Nori to venture into more adventurous terrain with a cocktail-driven bar in the heart of Poblacion. In the same location where Bucky’s used to stand, Ms. Gee is a restaurant and bar that features playful and creative takes on Asian flavors.

We’ll pretend we’re being healthy when drinking this ’cause tea, right?

Like Lan Kwai, Ms. Gee is a Hong Kong-themed bar. But that is just about where their commonalities end. Whereas Lan Kwai offers fun, accessible drinks, and dishes that are spins on local favorites, Ms. Gee has a shorter menu that is more ideal for bar chow rather than sit-down meals. But what stands out the most for us are their tea-infused gins that they use as the base of their Gee & Teas (a play on G&T). Right now they offer rose, jasmine, and oolong infusions, and are working on chamomile, mint, and ginger-honey.
