Instagram Food Finds

A lot of times I post pictures on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and don't blog about it anymore. I realize not everyone has social media accounts and it's hard to look for pictures that you want to find again. That's why I posting some new food finds that deserve to be shared on this ...

Maria Maria Restaurant

I will never forget my recent dinner at Maria Maria. Why? It's because I totally forgot about it. I already had dinner at home when my iPhone reminded me I had to go to Maria Maria.

Manam is Namnam

It took my balikbayan friend's arrival for me to finally try Manam, formerly called Namnam, at Greenbelt 2 in Makati. I know eating Filipino food isn't on your mind when thinking where to eat but trust me you have to put Manam on top of your list.  ... [Read More]

Kulinarya at Gallery Vask

When Jin invited me to partake of Gallery Vask's special Kulinarya menu I almost backed out when I found out it was a degustation of Filipino food. I was hesitant to pay a lot of money for Filipino food. It was a good thing I changed my mind.  ... [Read More]

Breakfast at Antonio’s, Good Shepherd, The Original Buko Pie Bakeshop

Breakfast at Antonio's in Tagaytay in one of my favorite places to eat at. It doesn't matter that it takes at least 90 minutes to get there from Manila I would go there any chance I get. Unfortunately I didn't have a good experience when I brought my balikbayan cousin and my mom, both first timers, ... [Read More]
