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 …

A delightful European meal at Poco Deli Ayala Triangle

To me, that means the best way to enter this place is when you’ve readied your tastebuds and forgotten your diet. I was all set for a gastronomic adventure of bright …

USA 2016 Travel Diary: A food-filled afternoon at Chelsea Market

While researching for this trip to New York, I was looking for some unique food-related places to visit. It was really difficult to filter through all that NYC had to offer, because there are so many eateries to visit in every borough! But there was one that stuck out to me because I kept seeing …

My long overdue visit to Your Local in Makati

Your Local opened in 2014– a time when I was focused on just sharing recipes on this site and pretty much oblivious about new food spots in the metro. But I think it’s a testament to how good this restaurant genuinely is when two years later, it’s still the talk of the town. In fact, …

A mighty fine Australian meal at Bondi & Bourke BGC

When I visited Australia way back when, I was too young to think about what it meant to truly experience being in another country. What I do remember is getting so drenched in Movieworld I almost wasn’t able to ride the bus with my wet clothes. Oh, and my first encounter with the autumn season! …
