A cozy little Japanese place in Tagaytay called Aozora Japanese Cafe + Bistro

I came back home from Sapporo the other day but I’m still soothing a Japan hangover, which is why I decided to write about a local Japanese restaurant, of all things, to fill in the void. Somehow.  Anyway, Tagaytay has become such a favourite weekend getaway spot among residents of Manila in recent years. Aside …

Take a trip to Europe through Vanderlust Bistro + Patisserie

I first came across Vanderlust Bistro + Patisserie through a Booky article. The main focus of that article was actually this German dessert you hit with a mallet to break open, and needless to say I was very curious about it. I’m not particularly knowledgeable about German desserts and I can say for certain I’ve …

First try at Kapitolyo favourite Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant

In the Japanese language, ‘Haru‘ means ‘spring‘. Such a sweet and romantic name to call a restaurant, and quite easy to remember too. No wonder Haru Sushi Bar has established itself as Kapitolyo’s friendly neighbourhood Japanese restaurant. Much like how the Japanese restaurants in Little Tokyo are frequented by people in the south, I feel …

Hey Handsome, care to join me for a meal?

Let’s start 2017 on the blog with what many people are touting as 2016’s best restaurant. Hey Handsome has been making huge, titanic-sized waves in the food scene since it opened not too long ago, and for once I didn’t wait for years until I tried it haha! I mention that just because it took …

Holiday celebrations with the Crystal Jade Dining In Set Menu

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Crystal Jade Dining In, but I do believe this is the one time we came here to try out their set menu. There are a fair amount of good Chinese restaurants in the metro, so admittedly we very rarely come to such a high-end one such as …

A Fundamental Coffee break in Park Terraces Tower Makati

It’s funny how I seem to have forgotten how to relax. Before, I always set aside at least an hour at night to read– my way of unwinding. Ask me how many books I’ve read this year and you will know I’ve been failing at that lately. I already adjusted my reading challenge on Goodreads …
