Flurried feasting at The Frazzled Cook in Quezon City

The Frazzled Cook - Flurried feasting at The Frazzled Cook in Quezon City

I first heard about The Frazzled Cook when they invited me for a meal way back when. I can’t even remember the specific time, but I think it must be when they first moved house from Eastwood to Tomas Morato. It was a long time ago, but to make a long story short: I couldn’t …

I’ve never heard of Rolando’s Tagaytay until the day my Dad mentioned that he made a reservation there. Apparently, it was owned by a friend of a friend, and well, you know how it works these days. 😊 After my Dad’s friend recommended that we try this place, we did indeed end up here. Rolando’s …

Tra Vinh TITLE - Tra Vinh is the place to go for Vietnamese food cravings

I feel like one of the hardest things to duplicate is the Vietnamese pho. The first time I ever had pho locally it seemed pretty good, but all that changed when I visited Vietnam and got a dose of reality. I still remember that time we went to this little roadside restaurant in Ho Chi …

A visit to Pamana Tagaytay at long last

Pamana 1 - A visit to Pamana Tagaytay at long last

The walls are decorated with dozens of old photographs, and as you go up the stairs you get a glimpse of the lives of …

A full serving of Singaporean fare at Shiok Shiok QC

Shiok Shiok 1 - A full serving of Singaporean fare at Shiok Shiok QC

Singaporean hawker food has become quite a thing over here lately, and I can only wonder why it took so long. As a fan of Peranakan fare, I’ve always been one of those people wishing there were more of these Singaporean restaurants a little closer to home. Suddenly quite a few of them have popped …

Lime & Basil Thai Restaurant Tagaytay makes case as a go-to Thai place

Lime Basil - Lime & Basil Thai Restaurant Tagaytay makes case as a go-to Thai place

In recent years Tagaytay has become quite the …
