First Sip: Versus Barcade

Tired of the normal night out with friends where all you do is drink, chat and maybe dance (when someone gets overboard in alcohol)? What if I tell you that there's a new bar in town that could make your mundane night a little bit funner? Hint: Barcade.

First Bite: ¡OYE! Tapas & Grill

Is it just me or there is a crazy number of restaurants opening here and there? I used to be able to keep up with the new store openings within my area but I couldn't keep up anymore with the rate it's going. But I prioritize those I've been itching to try and one of the new restaurants I spotted a few weeks back is this tapas place in Uptown Bonifacio.

Hello, ¡OYE! Tapas & Grill!

First Bite: Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine

Celebrating Chinese New Year has been deeply ingrained in our culture. We'd see non-Chinese families also welcoming the Lunar new year by feasting on Chinese delicacies,  cheering during the Dragon Dance and elaborate fireworks displays and handing ampaos to the little ones. Such strong obervance led to the said celebration to be declared a special non-working holiday since 2012. And there is no better way to spend this day than to indulge in some classic Chinese favorites.

Be More Imaginative with Toblerone this Valentine's Day

I still remember those younger years when I dream of being pampered by my prince charming with flowers, balloons and all those grand gestures to show his affections. But as I grow older, I become more and more practical and I found myself telling R not to buy me anything inedible. Defining myself as a scrooge would be too harsh as I still enjoy other forms of gifts. And my favorite to date is when R prepared a lovely steak dinner for us in Tagaytay. But with us being so busy these past months, we could barely even celebrate each others birthdays. Thankfully, a thoughful brand came up with an easy yet thoughtful way for us to express our love.

First Bite: Coffee.com, Hotel Jen Manila

Most of us usually shy away from dining in hotels thinking that  its food would be out of the budget. However, the more I explore, the more I realize that these hotel restaurants offer dishes and set menus that I find value for money. Though it may still be a bit more expensive compared to restaurants elsewhere, one thing I like about dining in hotels is that I am assured of, at the very least, good service. But I recently discovered a hotel restaurant that offers good food at reasonable prices. 

Hello, Coffee.com.
This inviting restaurant and café is located at the ground floor of Hotel Jen Manila which was formerly known as Traders Hotel.

First Bite: 24 Chicken Delivery Manila

Most of us try to be better versions of ourselves come the start of the new year. I've had several new year's resolutions but most if not all end up in the bin. And after several years of making new goals, I decided to make this year's resolutions more realistic and attainable. And one of my goals this 2018 is to be more exposed to new flavors, primarily spicy food. Now is the time to try that spicy chicken

Jollibee has undeniably become part of Filipino culture and lifestyle. We all know Chicken Joy, its langhap-sarap burgers and Burger Steak oozing with mushroom gravy sauce which redefined how we enjoy burger patty. And just when I thought Jollibee cannot go even more Pinoy, it released a new item that tickled my taste buds with glee.

Restaurant Love: Paradise Dynasty is now in Podium!

I have been a big fan of Paradise Dynasty ever since they opened in S'Maison. However, the distance has been an issue for me and it was like having a long distance relationship with the xiao long bao that stole my heart from another restaurant known for it. But love moves mountains and Paradise Dynasty finally opened a new branch closer to home. 

Hello, Paradise Dynasty.
