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..

Skewered

Skewered

I always enjoyed meat on sticks since I was a child. In a party, I remember always gunning for that makeshift stand from a cabbage cut in half poked with sticks adorned with you guessed it, hotdogs and marshmallows. It’s just so pretty and colourful […]

Madeca

Madeca

Madeca has been in Podium ever since I started working at Discovery Suites. But in the 5years I’ve been there, this is just the 2nd time I’m dining at this restaurant, probably because there’s just too many restaurants to choose from. And besides, this is […]

Charito by Bag of Beans

Charito by Bag of Beans

Back in 2011, we had our 1st vacation as a family. Everyone enjoyed their time then and my siblings and I agreed to make it a yearly thing. So far, we’re doing a good job there but this year, instead of going on a flight […]

Boosog

Boosog

        As you can tell from the food we ordered, we weren’t really too hungry when we dined at Boosog (which is a pun on the Tagalog term for busog which literally means full from food). The menu here is reasonably priced and their […]

Yum Yum Tree

Yum Yum Tree

After placing our order at Alejo’s lechon, we took a short ride towards Rustan’s Labangon to visit this little hole in the wall inside the establishment. For a small diner that has very little space, this hub never runs out of customers every hour, likely […]

Rodeo Grill

Rodeo Grill

Fairly new in SM City Cebu, Rodeo Grill is located on the second floor just beside the Bingo hall. This restaurant takes its inspiration from the wild west, particularly in areas predominated by cowboys and cattle. Aside from the eye catching display of uniforms worn […]

Manggahan

Manggahan

Manggahan is one of those cozy friday night out places you should definitely visit if you’re looking to chill, relax and enjoy some local band music. Located a few hundred meters away from the entrance of Camp Lapu-Lapu, this place offers cheap food and district […]

Manang Fe’s

Manang Fe’s

Manang Fe’s is located beside University of Southern Philippines in the middle of IT park and within walking distance to JY square. What surprises me about this restaurant is that they had the courage to go against the forerunner of grilled food here in Cebu […]

Orange Karenderia

Orange Karenderia

At first I thought of this place as something like the typical food stops beside UP (Royal Cafe and Brown Gate to name a few) but I was proven wrong when we finally visited this place after watching The Hobbit at Ayala Cinemas. The place […]

Pino

Pino

Located within walking distance from JY Square mall, Pino is a spacious restaurant in its third incarnation as an all-you-can-eat hub. We visited this place as we were heading home and we were not disappointed by what we saw. The place was refitted with new […]

Ice Giants

Ice Giants

As soon as we were finished with our meal, we visited this place for a few good reasons. One, someone was blocking the driveway of our park. Two, it was one of the neighboring establishments. Three, My sister wanted to try it out there. What […]

Brique

Brique

No matter how beautiful and pleasant the ambiance of the restaurant is, noisy patrons will always ruin the atmosphere of the restaurant. This happened to us just as we were visiting this new watering hole just beside Chika-an in Salinas Drive. Brique, the name of […]
