You can't deny the strong presence of Japanese food in Manila. There's so many Japanese ramen franchises in the city that we don't have to travel far for a big bowl of hot noodles. I'm more of an udon and soba fan and I'm so happy that there is now specialty soba restaurant in ... [Read More]

FAT Restaurant

Matcha in Manila

Kissako Uji Matcha Cafe-002

If my memory serves me right the first time I enjoyed matcha was Starbucks' matcha latte. Before that I never really gave thought to matcha. Now you know I'm obsessed. In Japan and Hong Kong it's easy to find good matcha drinks and food. In Manila it's like finding a needle in a haystack. I should ... [Read More]
