Vietnamese Delights Take Two at Vietnomnom Maginhawa

It’s my first time in Maginhawa. Known as a big food jungle that is home to new restaurant concepts, food parks and themed cafes, Maginhawa’s food choices seemed horrendously endless. Having thought that we’d end up chaotically checking each restaurant and confusing ourselves with the number of  selections, we settled on a recent craving of mine:…

Sarsa Kitchen + Bar: Superb Pinoy Food with a Twist

I love Filipino food. However, I tend to exclude it from my list when dining out to deviate from mediocre food typically served at home, and explore other cuisines. Some menu prices are overrated for such ordinary execution and of course you want to get your buck’s worth.  But Sarsa Kitchen + Bar in MOA  made the…

 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…

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…

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…
