Excellent wine, interesting food pairings at Planet Grapes Cebu

By on October 21, 2014
So did I become a snobbish wine connoisseur or an expert sommelier after 7 different glasses? Far from it of course. But it was an extremely satisfying learning experience, something that I'd like to do again in the company of friends, especially on a perfectly lazy Saturday night.

By on October 19, 2014
Maybe one of these days, I will get to enjoy this burger all by myself. By then, I'll finally attain that ultimate burger sensation, a sensation that hovers somewhere between a near death experience and a religious conversion.

By on August 17, 2014
They say that the 'patani' or black native chicken is a rare find. And that it is usually sought after by the Chinese for its supposed medicinal properties. And that because it is quite elusive, a kilo of it would cost you a considerable sum.

Durian halo-halo and other dessert treats at Frozen Snackbar

By on June 30, 2014
When I stepped inside Frozen Snackbar, I wanted to burst a few lines from "Let It Go," that catchy song from Frozen, the Disney movie where this new dessert place took its inspiration from.

Affordable brew in Parian: Shepherd’s Heart Cafe

By on June 15, 2014
Although Shepherd's Heart Cafe is located right across the Heritage of Cebu Monument, you probably didn't know that this unassuming coffeeshop or a coffeeshop for that matter even existed in this portion of the city.
