Post-election hangover at Sulbing Dessert Cafe

By on May 21, 2016
Although Sulbing cafe also offers crepes, coffee and toasts, it undoubtedly specializes on bingsu, a much-loved Korean dessert that's similar to our local halo-halo. But compared to the latter, it's actually recommended not to mix the finely shaved ice with its mountainous toppings. Instead, you scoop delicious spoonfuls out of this mound.

Butuan City delicacies: palagsing and decades-old hotcakes

By on April 23, 2016
I actually expected a few hotcake stalls that morning. Mrs. Carissa Tolo or Nang Isang would later tell me that there used to be five of them back in 1984. Her fellow hotcake vendors have since left Butuan, but she chose to stay in the city. She has been flipping these beloved pancakes ever since.

Back in Eastwood City

By on April 18, 2016
Eastwood is not a 'city' per se, but in many respects it is. Confined (or crowded) in this relatively small piece of real estate are luxury condominium towers, BPO companies, pet-friendly shopping malls, churches, restaurants, a clinic and even an educational institution.

One food-filled Saturday in Metro Manila

By on April 14, 2016
My brief weekend in Metro Manila a few weeks ago was very memorable for at least three reasons: a very delayed return flight, watching Les Miserables and a food trip around the city.

Seafood City’s SUTUKIL packages

By on March 1, 2016
If you get the first two letters of these three dishes, you'll have the SUTUKIL. It is a trifecta, if you will, of three recipes - grill, stew and raw. When you come to think of it, it's not that hard to execute too.

Fly to Singapore or Dubai with SilkAir and Singapore Airline’s Amazing Fares

By on February 21, 2016
The best part about this SilkAir route is that the airline flies to squeaky-clean Singapore with a quick stopover at Kalibo if I'm not mistaken. You see, I try to avoid a Manila layover whenever I can considering NAIA's legendary flight delays and long immigration queues.

Eats around Mandaue: Levantine shawarmas, two cafes and the best ramen in Cebu

By on February 2, 2016
There’s a lesson or two here of course. That I have consumed more calories than what’s necessary. And that there’s certainly more to Mandaue, a city in Cebu that seems to be plagued with EDSA-esque traffic woes lately.

A Peanuts-kind-of Happy Meal

By on January 10, 2016
I am more of a Garfield person actually. But I remember that Peanuts was one of the first literature that I read back in the day.

Tatang’s- party packages and their extra crispy boneless lechon

By on December 10, 2015
Despite my attempts at a pre-holiday detox, I found myself at Tatang's Boneless Lechon not too long ago. It was my second visit in less than a week. I still don't know why I couldn't resist the temptation.
