Friuli Trattoria

Maginhawa Street in Quezon City is getting known as food street.  It’s as if the residences there suddenly realized they all wanted to open up restaurants.  To get there, you can go through either CP Garcia Avenue or via Elliptical Road.  (Maps courtesy of Google Maps and Wikimapia) Here’s a snapshot of the restaurants there. … Continue reading

New Food Options at Serenitea

Aside from the usual pepper chicken and pepper corn, I like the mochi buns at Serenitea.  And depending on how hungry you are, you’ll likely find something that will pair well with your drink. Now… tada… drum roll, please…. new snack options! Now those who aren’t fond of very peppery snacks will have more options.  … Continue reading

FoodFind: Illy

Yesterday was one of those rare occacions when we went to Makati. We rarely go there. Aside from the distance and the traffic, hubby hates figuring out which streets are one-way in what direction. But we had to do stuff so off we went to Glorietta. After standing up for 3 hours, we were tired … Continue reading

FoodFind: MyOwn Meatshop

This is where I buy my meat now.  Hubby and I discovered a place called “My Own Meatshop” by accident.  He wanted to stop by a bike shop across the street, I knew I would get bored and just be in the way in the small shop, so I told him I would just check … Continue reading

Nommu Bar and Resto

So in case you haven’t noticed yet, my favorite food genre is Japanese.  Too bad they’re so expensive.  Anyhow.  So when I saw Ensogo selling vouchers for a Japanese resto along Tomas Morato, I couldn’t resist.   Take note of the name.  It really is a bar that also serves meals.  We had a php500 … Continue reading

Brown Rice at Teriyaki Boy

This was from the last time that we ate at Teriyaki Boy in Banawe.  Sometimes we try to order something different, something that we haven’t tried before.  On this occasion, I’m glad that we did. Presenting the Tori Brown Rice Nabe. They did a superb job with this.  The rice was soft and not grainy, … Continue reading

Real Chinese Food

I haven’t blogged in a long, looooooong time.  Well, there are just some things that you have to blog about.  I’ve been out of the country twice in the past two months, both of which were quite unexpected.  One was a business trip to Beijing, while another was for a family event in Kuala Lumpur. … Continue reading

Tommassi Ristorante

After numerous tries, we finally managed to dine at Tommassi.  The first attempt was as walk-in guests, and we were told that you could only dine if you made reservations.  On the second try, we called a few hours before dinner, but that wouldn’t do either.  It had to be at the very least a … Continue reading
