Great Filipino comfort food at Kuya J Restaurant

By on June 12, 2014
The similarity perhaps ends in terms of execution and in serving dishes that are slightly re-imagined: an unmistakable edginess in texture and taste, but with a careful respect for the familiar flavors that they were built on in the first place.

No struggles at this taquiera: La Lucha

By on March 30, 2014
If La Lucha's name does not give itself away, then its counter could only overemphasize that it is in fact a food joint serving Mexican food.

It was a little over 10 AM and his small restaurant, which used to be a secret shared by expats working nearby, foreign divers and students, was largely empty.

Nonki Japanese Restaurant

By on March 18, 2014
If I had my way, I would have the remaining sushi for myself. But since I dragged my friend to try out Nonki Japanese Restaurant, then I must allow him that same experience as well.

Cagayan de Oro food trip: around Divisoria

By on February 1, 2014
These downtown establishments have been facing that delicate balance between that stubbornness to stick to their long-standing legacy and that urge to make bold steps into the future.

Interesting finds at Mercato de Oro

By on January 25, 2014
I was excited with Mercato de Oro for at least 2 good reasons. I thought that this is a welcome alternative, to the Night Cafe at Divisoria, the closure of which drew mixed reactions from the city residents.

Cebu City Food Trip: The Tour Guide Edition

By on November 2, 2013
I played the accidental tourist guide when two of my good friends and I sneaked in to Cebu almost a year ago. It was not a role that I wanted to play at the onset, since these are very voracious foodies.
