Maria Luisa’s Garden Room

A couple of years ago anyone can eat at Maria Luisa's Garden Room. I don't know exactly why they changed the rules but now you have to be a member of Makati Garden Club to dine there. Thankfully one of my friends was related to a member so we were able to eat there. If I lived in Makati I would ... [Read More]

Duck and Buvette’s 1st Anniversary

Contrary to popular opinion I don't really eat out that often. When I do go out I like trying out new restaurants. I've eaten in several restaurants once and only a few restaurants get a repeat. I've eaten in Duck and Buvette about 4 times already so you know it's on my go-to restaurant ... [Read More]

San Francisco: Urchin Bistrot

I usually start with posts about my flight and hotel when I start on a new series about a trip. This time I'm writing about Urchin Bistrot in San Francisco first because I just read that they were going to close on July 31. I had such a nice meal there and  I really wanted to go back. Maybe ...

Hong Kong: La Vache

I didn't have any plans of going to Hong Kong until December but my friend asked me if I was going since we had a long weekend from August 21-25 (absent on the 22nd :D). I said no and she said why not? So I made a snap decision and bought a ticket two days before the trip. ... [Read More]

Duck & Buvette at Shangri-La Plaza

Some people like my cousin La loves duck confit so much that if it's on the menu you can be sure that's what she will order. I on the other hand have never ordered duck confit as my entree. Sure I've tried a bite or two but it isn't just my favorite. I'm more prone to order lamb chops or good ... [Read More]

Eric Kayser Cafe in Greenhills

I've been waiting for Eric Kayser to open in Greenhills for a long time. Ever since I tried their dark chocolate chip cookie in Hong Kong I've been a big fan.  ... [Read More]

Michelin-Starred Chef Richard Toix Degustation Menu at The Tivoli

I don't even remember the last time I ate at Mandarin Oriental's The Tivoli. It must have been decades ago. It took a few pictures of Michelin-Starred Richard Toix' offerings on Instagram to make me go back. ... [Read More]
