Another Sunday Lunch at Choi Garden


Have I mentioned Choi Garden is my favorite Chinese restaurant? We eat there at least 2 Sundays a month. Add to that the occasional friends get together and hot pot yearning, I’ve eaten there 4 times in the past month! I don’t mind since I never get tired of eating their excellent food. When we […]

Jollibee does a Stockholm


Last month I posted the tribute dance for Michael Jackson done in Stockholm. Last August 8, 2009, 300 dancers made a tribute to Jollibee Yumburger. Not original but the dancers looked like they had fun. I think there were more dancers than onlookers. Thanks to Chuvaness for posting it first.

Beijing Hand Pulled Noodle House


Beijing Hand-Pulled Noodle House is the newest restaurant along J. Abad Santos st. in San Juan. It’s right beside Tofu store where I buy the best taho. It’s a small and simply decorated restaurant. I went there around 2 p.m. today that’s probably why the place was empty. They have an open kitchen where you […]
