I finally got around to trying Your Local in Makati a few weeks ago. It's located in Legaspi Village so I made sure we arrived before noon since the place gets full really quick and they don't accept reservations. ... [Read More]

Duck & Buvette at Shangri-La Plaza

Duck & Buvette- D&B Crispy Half Duck Confit P980-002

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.

What’s New at Spiral Buffet

Spiral Buffet

I'm the last person who will go to a buffet since the choices always overwhelm me and I don't eat enough to merit the cost. But since I was invited by Sofitel to check out what's new at Spiral I decided to go.  ... [Read More]
