a little bit about travel, a little bit about food, a lot of everything in between; as seen, tasted and experienced by different points of view..

Manila

Shi Lin

Shi Lin

Shi Lin had its branch in Podium for a while now and I’ve always been looking at it as I pass by wondering if it was the right time to come back. Its red logo and white letters give a sense of foreboding. Xiao Long […]

Wooden Horse Steakhouse

Wooden Horse Steakhouse

There are two April birthday celebrants in my family, me and my sister. One month after, we finally went out and celebrate. Priorities, I know! Our grandma came along so it had to be somewhere close so it won’t be too hard for her. So […]

GEN Korean BBQ

GEN Korean BBQ

SM Mall of Asia is too far from my residence so I usually take a pass on visiting this place but gladysann is in town. She stayed around the vicinity so it was a good enough reason to go to MOA. Also, I had to […]

Hogs and Cattle + PaperMoon Cafe

Hogs and Cattle + PaperMoon Cafe

Close to 20 years ago, I remember sharing my mornings and afternoons with my sisters watching The Lion King. The animated film that propelled Disney to make numerous animated films that young people and adults come to love. So when the International play came to […]

Meat Depot

Meat Depot

And here we are at Meat Depot, literally, another meat depot. I had the joy of dining in one of these restaurants before in Shang, where you choose from their freezer and ask them to cook it for you in the temperature you like. They […]

Char Express + Bake + Stockwell

Char Express + Bake + Stockwell

A newly opened food hall at the Podium Mall, Corner Market, is starting to gain traction with its various food selection from every imaginable cuisine. After roaming the food hall, I was literally overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to eat haha but I decided on […]

Ramen Nagi

Ramen Nagi

Today I have an appointment in Makati Shangri-La from 9am to 12nn. I had to prepare for this meeting long and hard and once it was over, I immediately walked to the nearby Greenbelt 3 to grab my bowl of ramen from Ramen Nagi. Why? […]

Ogetsu Hime

Ogetsu Hime

Continuing the Japanese cuisine saga, we’ve managed to hunt down yet another restaurant for sushi and sashimi lovers alike. Ogetsu Hime which translates to “Goddess of Food” has landed at our dear SM Megamall Fashion Hall. It’s one of those restaurants you pass by and […]

Jaeu

Jaeu

The first time I passed by this restaurant in the expansion wing of Festival Mall, I thought that’s a weird name for a restaurant: Jaeu. How on Earth are you going to pronounce that? Jae? Joe? Zha? So naturally, when I went there to dine […]

Epicurious

Epicurious

Eating at Epicurious in Shangri-La is hitting two birds with one stone. Today is MD Paper’s 10th Anniversary and because of that, Scribe organized an event to showcase talented artists and their works, and of course, several brands that are patronized by everyone in the […]

Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty

Before working on this review, I had to read back to all the Xiao Long Bao posts I did in the past months and check if those were properly rated. Because when I saw my dim sum served to me, I knew in an instant […]

L’épicerie Gourmande

L’épicerie Gourmande

Another French restaurant in the block, L’épicerie Gourmande is at the Riverpark at Festival Mall. It was a sunny day (isn’t it always?) so I decided to sit beside the window. I had a nice view of the amphitheater but further up there was a […]
