Penang: Laksa at Air Itam

By on May 19, 2019
Needless to say that it's not exactly my favorite Penang dish or to borrow Bourdain's very own words - it's not the one thing that 'I gotta have' when I am in these parts.

Penang: Roti Canai at Transfer Road

By on May 5, 2019
But for some reason the #uglydelicious version tasted better. I guess this usually happens when you take out the streetfood out of the streets. The food just won't taste the same.

Panagatan: inconsistent service but we still come here anyway

By on April 18, 2019
Maybe the restaurant needs a better expediting system (if there is even one) or more crew to look after a quite sizable dining area. The acoustic band can only entertain so much, but at some point, food should already be flying out of the kitchen.

Mactan, Cebu: Island Hot Wings

By on March 20, 2019
It is a fair warning I'd say as these unassuming babies are glazed with ghost pepper, one of the hottest chilis in the world.

While the Philippines is not yet a 'cashless country,' I still think that innovations such as this especially in the restaurant industry, is a good first step in the right direction.

When in Cebu: The Market by Sugbo Mercado

By on January 5, 2019
It is managed by the same geniuses behind the hugely successful Sugbo Mercado. Cebu's version of a 'hawker center' if you will.

Penang | Kaze Japanese Restaurant

By on November 26, 2018
The restaurant seems to carry every pretty Japanese dish (and sake too) in the world. This could either be good and not so good, depending on how you see such things.

Passable burger but the beer saved the day

By on November 4, 2018
I guess everything is forgiven after a bottle of beer. I even began to appreciate the omelette on my burger and forgot that it reminded me of what I had for breakfast.

Aidalicious: Bacolod-style chicken inasal

By on May 14, 2018
Its flavors leans towards the savory and not the sweet, with welcome hints of tang from the secret marinade. Each bite reminded me of our epic lunch back in Bacolod.

Manang Juling’s: Sinugbang Tasik and Steamed Bongkawil

By on April 15, 2018
Each of the dishes at Manang Juling's Kilawan is very affordable. But when you order three different ones and you are dining alone, that is another story.
