The cheat’s 15-minute “Japanese” meal

Japanese cuisine is one of my favourites in the world. If I lived next door to an Omakase or even Sakura you would probably see me in there every other day! Luckily Manila does have its fair share of great Japanese restaurants. But as much as it would be great to eat out that often, …

A glimpse of Japan in Mitsuyado Sei-Men

9518006700 77674d1534 b - A glimpse of Japan in Mitsuyado Sei-Men

Nestled along Jupiter street is a restaurant that stands rather unassumingly– not a hint of the secret world hidden within its walls seeps through its doors. I have been hearing plenty of things about Mitsuyado Sei-Men from both bloggers and foodie friends, but since I don’t frequent this area much, I haven’t had the chance …

Continuing from part I of my recent Japanese eats round-up, I hope you all are ready for more mouth-watering dishes! One of the most recent trends to hit Metro Manila lately is the ramen craze. Ramen places have been popping up like daisies, and yet there is always a loooong line of people waiting to …

Japanese food overload, Part I: Sushi, rolls, and more sushi!

Screen Shot 2013 09 03 at 10.08.25 PM - Japanese food overload, Part I: Sushi, rolls, and more sushi!

Aside from the fact that I haven’t baked in two weeks (!!!), I’m too tired to check on my backlogs and write a recipe post, so I decided to just write a ‘What I’ve Been Eating Lately’ post. I noticed a little pattern with the restaurants we’ve been eating in lately; a pattern that I …

Yes, I’m actually a videogame nerd

Well it’s not a secret, but it’s not something I get to discuss at length. I super love videogames. I love it so much I once made concept art for a game I had an idea for. (Also something you didn’t know about me, I love to draw!) When I was in high school, I …

Hi chocolate, it’s nice to matcha!

Did I really just write that title? I’m sorry. So I finally managed to track down some matcha powder some weeks ago, and unfortunately it’s not the sort I’m looking for. It seems like a really mild type of matcha. From what I’ve been seeing in photos, the concentrated one has a greener hue; and …

Experiencing Yabu’s authentic katsu

Screen Shot 2013 09 04 at 7.42.25 PM - Experiencing Yabu's authentic katsu

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a fan of anything fried. In fact, I don’t eat them quite often. But during the times that I do, they have to be worth my stomach space. That’s where Yabu: House of Katsu comes in. I’ve been hearing about this restaurant from some of my …

Some of my favourite things to eat

This week is kind of a busy week for me, so I’ll post about what I’ve been eating instead of what I’ve been making for today. (I’m so happy that the iPhone takes lovely impromptu restaurant food pictures.) Hopefully I’ll get something yummy up before the end of the week. Well, I don’t know if …
