A cool concept with good execution: DC Heroes Cafe

It’s been a while since I posted about a restaurant I’ve visited, so I thought we should change that. The other night we went to a restaurant that amused me so much too, so that’s pretty much perfect timing. Today, I present to you, dear reader, the DC Heroes Cafe in SM Megamall. I heard about…

Surf and Sea: Elyu Day 2.

This post is definitely long overdue. The last post about this trip was posted months ago. If you want to check that out, it’s right here. This is day two of our trip to La Union, spent mostly on the beach, but with some gems found in the city. Read on to find out more. 😊 The…

Let’s cook! Bistek Tagalog

I’m making lunch today and I had a thought to document the process. Bistek Tagalog is one of my absolute favorite Filipino dishes, and it’s very simple to make yourself so that’s a huge bonus. Now, I don’t remember where I got the recipe that I use. It’s been a note in my phone for…

Cali galleries: In-N-Out.

These next 2 posts happened in the same day–my last tourist day in San Diego. If you want to check out the rest of this series, go ahead and click here. I spent two weeks in California meeting with family and friends, and being a tourist. This series documents this trip. Go ahead and check…

Surf and Sea: Elyu Day 1.

It’s been a while since I went on a road trip (Tagaytay doesn’t really count because it’s only about 2 to 2 and a half hours away), so when I knew that a long weekend was coming up, I decided it would be a good time to go somewhere and take a break. It’s also…

Cali galleries: Boodle fight!

Welcome back! In the last post, we started with the second day of my family reunion. If you want to check that out, or any other post in this series, go ahead and click here. We’ve taken in the view and the air in Mt. Helix, and we’ve gone home to take some time to…

Size matters.

A few years back, I went to this thing in La Union, and I got a bite of a burger from one of the concessionaires. The bite was so good that when I got back to Manila, I looked up the place to check if they had stores nearby. The upside was that they did….

Cali galleries: Lucille’s flying pig lounge.

No trip would be complete without checking out the local food scene. I’m a huge fan of barbecue, so when my mother’s friend suggested we have lunch at this really good barbecue place, I was stoked. 😆 From the minute you enter the place, you are bombarded with the scent of food being grilled, as…

Golden day: the food.

A few weeks back, I wrote about going to a restaurant in the city for a surprise celebration for a family friend. I mentioned in that post that the food served was amazing. This is just a little post to accompany that post, one that focuses on the food. This isn’t going to be a long…

Simply delicious.

I made soup!  I was always used to stew-type dishes which had a lot of meat and vegetables and different textures, so I tended to avoid soup that stood on its own (noodle dishes don’t count). After tasting the Broccoli Cheddar soup from Panera Bread, and this other soup from Bentley’s Pancake House & Restaurant though, I…
