Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken is now in Cebu

By on January 18, 2017
From its first restaurant in Greenhills back in 2006, the Filipino-owned Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken has since expanded to a handful more stores around the Philippines and very recently, overseas in Myanmar. Having said that, I actually wonder why they took quite awhile to open a branch in Cebu

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.

Cagayan de Oro’s Cucina Higala

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.

The Strand: a luxurious heritage hotel in Yangon, Myanmar

By on October 25, 2016
The soothing sound from the pattalar, a traditional Burmese musical instrument, filled the luxurious lobby of The Strand Hotel in downtown Yangon. Its bamboo keys were expertly played by a lady garbed in a light yellow blouse and a local wrap called longyi.

A sulit meal and a sulit phone

By on October 23, 2016
Mingnan is located at Plaridel Extension, a one-way street that bisects across what looked like the back alleys of business establishments along Osmeña boulevard. But this eatery, beloved by those who know about it, serves very budget-friendly and freshly-cooked value meals.

Pillows Hotel: more than just a budget accommodation in Cebu

By on October 16, 2016
After we checked-in, I was relieved to find out that our accommodation was a lot more spacious compared to the photos of it I saw online. Our room was already fitted with four single beds, the two were extras I think, each of which had their customized signature fluffy pillows. Needless to say that the property was named after these babies.

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?
