Healthy eating in style at Green Pastures BGC

Green Pastures is a farm-to-table restaurant put up by Chef Robby Goco of Cyma fame. Its first branch has been in existence since 2013, but this is the first time I’ve managed to visit their newer BGC branch. The main selling point of Green Pastures is that it serves organic food. They make all their …

A quick stop at Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen to satisfy cravings

Some time late last year, I got to eat at Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen for the first time. I know, I know… What the heck kind of foodie am I, that I’m always so late at trying these popular places out? Well I don’t tend to go out much so that’s actually one of my …

A delightful European meal at Poco Deli Ayala Triangle

I can’t believe this restaurant has been around for 8 years and I am only now getting to know about it. Granted I wasn’t a blogger 8 years ago and wasn’t really paying much attention to food-related things; still, this only fell into my radar this year. I’m like: Where have I been? How did …

My first try at Ooma Restaurant in Megamall

Ooma Japanese Rice Bar is currently one of the most popular places in the Metro for Japanese rice rolls and Japanese comfort food-style dishes. 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 …
