Funny thing about being the resident Binondo girl is the fact that I have not eaten in all the restaurants you'll find in Chinatown. And I'm sorry to my great ancestors, but that's primarily because I'm not so fond of Chinese food because I grew up with sought-for Chinese restaurants as my neighbor. But when … Continue reading REVIEW: Mei Sum Teahouse in Binondo
A new place in Binondo opened up at one of the oldest heritage gems- the former HSBC building at the corner of Juan Luna and Escolta. This 97-year old building was erected in 1922 and was renovated into where the 1919 Grand Cafe stands. The cafe keeps the original facade of the jewel and polished … Continue reading REVIEW: The 1919 Grand Cafe in Binondo
It became a tradition to do a year-end dinner with the family. I was the taya, so I had the say on where to eat, ha! We ended up in The Royale Sharksfin Seafood Restaurant along Quintin Paredes Street, 3rd floor of Pacific Centre, here in Binondo. The last thing I appreciate in the restaurant … Continue reading REVIEW: The Royale Sharksfin Seafood Restaurant
Out of the blue, it was a mutual decision for all of us to dine out. Part of which was because it's already quite some time when we last did but also because none of us wanted to cook that night as well. Like usual, we didn't want to be too far away from home … Continue reading REVIEW: Newly Opened Kenji Tei at Lucky Chinatown Mall

I was able to convince my mom to accompany me around the metro to go shopping (lol, right?). After our endless walking in Robinson's Galleria, we ended up in Pho Bac for some snack. Trying out an Art-style review. (Hi broff!) We ordered Mixed Seafood Rice, Four Seasons Noodle and Black Gulaman. Their food options … Continue reading QUICKIE: Trying Vietnamese at Pho Bac
During our stay in El Nido and every time we went back from our island hopping tours, we all had one thing (or should I say dilemma) in common. We're all hungry. But every time we went around the town, all the famous blogger-mentioned restaurants are packed. During our day 3 stay in El Nido, we … Continue reading L’JODEC: Underrated Restaurant in El Nido
The whole experience was fun, but to be honest, it's not something I want to do again, unless with really great company like these people.
Everyone knows that my palate belongs to Italian cuisines. But only a few knows that Japanese dishes come next to it. So thank the good lords of appetites for placing a Japanese restaurant two minutes away from my house (and they deliver too in case I'm feeling extra lazy for that 2-minute walk).
Ever wonder what it feels like not seeing some of the best people you've met in high school for a while now? I don't. But after this day, I realized they're one of the best people I've met for a reason and that's all that matters.
My bro and I decided to eat out for lunch as our usual sibling date. We decided to head to SM Manila for a change. After we went up and down the escalators trying to find a good place to eat, we were left with choosing between one restaurant, and Mad for Pizza. When we … Continue reading +10 for Getting Mad for Pizza in SM Manila
