Here’s why this stall serves the best shake in Cebu

By on July 11, 2017
Recognition from award-giving bodies should be taken with a grain of salt. But for being declared as Cebu's best fruit shake, Tropic Fruit Bar, rightfully deserves it.

An unassuming chicken wings place

By on January 17, 2017
Although Southside Chicken Wings is quite near my apartment, I was able to visit this unassuming open-air restaurant only a few days ago. This was largely in part because of a colleague's glowing recommendation - that she finds their affordable wings delicious and cooked home-style as well.

By on January 2, 2017
The relatively new Cucina Higala is one of the very few restaurants in my hometown that I’d highly recommend. It is located along Capistrano St. in downtown Cagayan de Oro.

Carnivore: dine here before they close for good

By on October 9, 2016
So why is it that Carnivore, a small restaurant with great ambitions, will be unfortunately closing its doors soon? Is it because of their relatively hidden location in Cebu or that the city is not yet ready for this kind of cuisine? How will a restaurant then with no lechon belly or unlimited rice or baked scallops in the menu thrive in this part of the Philippines?

Brennan is an electronics engineer by profession. From time to time, he gets to travel beyond his office cubicle, try new restaurants or catch up with his terribly long list of unread books. He likes museums, spicy food and talking with habal-habal drivers. For now, he's still deciding on whether to play Pokémon GO or not.
