Izakaya Kikufuji at Little Tokyo

Izakaya Kikufuji - Nigiri Nami P450-001

I only learned to eat sushi and sashimi recently so pardon my ignorance, excitement and eagerness to eat it as often as I could. When I asked my readers for suggestions on where I should eat sushi a lot of them said Izakaya Kikufuji in Little Tokyo so that’s where I went.

Downtown Cafe in Pampanga

Dowtown Cafe

  When I ate at Claude and Mary Anne Tayag’s Bale Dutung in Pampanga early this year Mary Ann also invited me to try their newest baby, Downtown Cafe, a casual restaurant in Nepo Center’s food stip called The Quad in Angeles City. Taking my balikbayan friend Ariel to eat there was my excuse to […]

Manam is Namnam

Manam (Namnam) Comfort Filipino- Crispy Sisig (large) P375-001

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.

Kulinarya at Gallery Vask

Kulinarya at Gallery Vask - Sungka

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.

Senju at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel

Senju's Dragon Roll

If you read my blog regularly, thank you. You may have noticed I’ve featured several Japanese restaurants one after the other. It’s because I’ve become obsessed with sushi since my trip to Osaka more than a month ago. Don’t worry I will feature good Filipino food next week.

Sekitori Ortigas Center

Sekitori Hanston Square - sushi moriawase

A couple of months ago I received an email from a reader who told me about a hidden gem in Ortigas Center called Sekitori. Since I work in Ortigas Center I promised him I will check out the place. After dragging my feet I finally went to Sekitori for a late, late lunch. I arrived at […]

Chirashi Don

Sekitori's Chirashi Don P450-001

I have a confession to make. I hope this doesn’t change your opinion about me and my blog. Can you believe that I didn’t eat sashimi or any raw fish before this year? Sure I would eat all those cooked sushi creations like those from Omakase. Things changed after I had my first bowl of chirashi […]

Lunch at Cheesecakes by Guy in Eastwood

Cheesecakes by Guy (Eastwood)

Sometimes I yearn for a good sandwich rather than eat the usual rice meal or in my case when I’m on a diet, protein and veggies only. There’s something very comforting about eating a good sandwich which isn’t always easy to find in Manila.

Eric Kayser Cafe in Greenhills

Eric Kayser Cafe Greenhills-008
