Nadal Fujisoba at BGC

Nadai Fujisoba

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 BGC.  Nadai […]

FAT Restaurant

Fat Restaurant- FAT Poutine

I know what you’re thinking but this restaurant wasn’t named after me. FAT is a new restaurant in Burgos Circle helmed by Chef Kel Zaguirre of Locavore. I promise you won’t get fat after one meal but I’m pretty sure you will leave the restaurant with a full tummy and big smile on your face.

Bondi&Bourke- Lamingtons

Each time I’ve gone to Australia I’ve asked, “What is Aussie food?” I never got a direct answer but I know they love burgers and meat pies done the Aussie way. If you want to try Aussie food for yourself head on to the newly opened Bondi&Bourke in Makati.

Paper Moon Cake Boutique and Cafe

Paper Moon Cafe- Mango Mille Crepe-001

Most likely you’ve tried a crepe cake, as we call it, in Manila. I’m sure it’s been served at a party of two. I know I’ve eaten my share since my friend makes it a point to have a crepe cake in her parties. Let me tell you now that Paper Moon’s mille crepes tastes […]

Pie Face Philippines

Pie Face Philippines-014

Very few things will make me go all the way to SM Mall of Asia which feels so far from where I live and work. It’s really not that far but because of Manila’s constant horrendous traffic it takes a minimum of one hour to get there. I wanted to eat the same meat pie I had […]

Sometimes I get email or texts from people asking me to where to eat for a romantic dinner, special occasion, bring a balikbayan, etc. I have the same answer for all, Mecha Uma. My first time to eat there was last September 2014 and I was blown away by the food.  If you’re a foodie […]

San Francisco: Urchin Bistrot

Urchin Bistrot -004

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 […]

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 […]
