Chicken, Ribs and Friends at Gringo BGC

Gringo would always appear in my FB newsfeed, with its mouthwatering food photos popping everywhere nonchalantly luring me to give it a try. And as a lover of Mexican food, how can I say no? The reviews are awesome, the place seems chic and cool, and the food looks enticing enough to even ignore it or…

Twenty Sixteen: A Rewind

It’s hard to describe 2016. The experiences, both good and bad are multi-layered to be chalked up to one word. It was a plethora of different colors and emotions – crazy, painful yet beautiful all at the same time. As each year unfolds, we never stayed in one place. We’re bound to embrace the constancy…

Affordable Yet Winning Ramen at Ramen Kuroda McKinley Hill

The top-of-the-line, fine-tasting ramen we know would always come in hefty prices. After all, cost isn’t a big deal when it compensates our expectations for premiere quality and satisfactory taste.  When it has a cheap price tag, it’s likely missing out on set standards. But the case is different in Ramen Kuroda – where the budget…

Birthday 2016

Sorry for the late post. I had this dilemma of whether writing it or not, sometimes I was in the mood, sometimes I wasn’t. But I realized there are more good things to share, so I’d rather let the overflowing happiness surface into writing this blog post. This year, I had no plans of celebrating…

Signature Chicken Sandwiches at FowlBread BGC

We’ve seen restaurants today enthusiastic about burgers. Contending against sizes, beefy goodness, variety of toppings – it’s a cutthroat competition out there. Fowlbread shifted from the tough burger battle and decided to focus instead on another unique creation, chicken sandwiches. Fowlbread is under the wing of Tasteless Group, the creative minds behind Wrong Ramen, Hole…

More Things to Love About Iloilo City

Iloilo city is home to so many good things. Drivers don’t honk their horns against each other when agitated by traffic. No candy wrappers are littered on the streets. A police officer gave us the one-peso short change when the jeepney driver forgot to hand it. A random stranger at the ferry helped me carry my…

Guimaras: More than Sweet Mangoes and Crystalline Waters

After the Gigantes adventure that entailed us to do strenuous activities and proactively try different methods of commuting, my friends and I finally sought a much laid-back escapade in the island province of Guimaras. Situated in between the islands of Panay and Negros, Guimaras is renowned not only for its sweet mangoes, but for its tourist…

The Untold Secrets of Islas de Gigantes

Going to a new place every year for my birthday has been a self-imposed commitment. I like rewarding myself with travels to enrich myself more in experiences, creating more memories as I embrace a new chapter in my life. This year, my close friends and I booked a ticket to Iloilo. Going as far as Western…

Shawarma Bros: Not Your Typical Shawarma, Bro

Following the much-hyped opening of Venice Grand Canal to the public, many likewise anticipate the opening of more restaurants at the Italian-themed mall. That includes me and my friends, who wanted to get more decent food other than pantry meals and fastfood. And since I’m a lover of anything Persian, I tagged them along to Shawarma Bros…

Thailand Throwback: Garden Phuket Hotel

One of the major things I consider when traveling is the hotel. Second to good amenities, the location should be near the airport or at least close to tourist spots for easier access. Choosing our hotel in Phuket was really hard since there are too many pretty and eye-catching hotels posted online. We had to inquire because our…

Thailand Throwback: Falling in Love with Thai Cuisine

Among Asian cuisines, Thai food used to be last on my list. Aside from my dislike on the fusion of sweetness and spiciness in a dish,  there is a rarity of restaurants in Manila that seem to execute Thai dishes well, based on experience. Not to mention, I am not a fan of spicy food. Not…
