It’s been a while since I last posted. I was sick with “tamaditis” (laziness) and my PLDT Fibr connection was down for 12 days! I called multiple times a day and it took posting on Twitter to finally get a technician to my house. It was fixed quickly. It was just getting somebody too checkContinue reading “Rambla’s Lunch Menu”
I don’t know why it took so long for me to eat at Calderon when it’s so near where I live. It took Rochelle’s post birthday celebration for me to finally know what I’ve been missing.
When I went to Europe last year my favorite place for food was the coastal city of San Sebastián or Donostia in Spain. From Michelin 3 star Akelaŕe to pintxos bar hopping I just loved all the unique dishes that tasted familiar yet surprising.
There is no shortage of Spanish restaurants in Manila and every time a new one opens I want to try it since I just love tapas and paella.
My first dinner in Cebu was in Ibiza Beach Club at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan. I was told we were having tapas and that’s always a good thing. A short stroll from the hotel lobby to the end of this lighted walkway was Ibiza Beach Club, my favorite place in the entire hotel. Ibiza Beach Club isContinue reading “Tapas at Ibiza Beach Club, Mövenpick Hotel Mactan”
Croquetas (croquettes) are one of the most popular tapas in Spanish restaurants. The kinds of fillings you can use are endless. From chicken to salmon and even Spam.

For dinner I decided on a Spanish theme to reminisce on all the wonderful tapas and Spanish food I ate on my recent trip to Spain. One of our favoriteContinue reading “Spanish Themed Birthday Dinner”
My dreams of dining at El Buli will never be realized now that the famous restaurant of Ferran Adrià has closed it’s doors. I tried desperately to get reservations at Tickets, the tapas bar in Barcelona Adrià opened with his brother. Reservations for a group of 16 was impossible so I tried it for 4 and evenContinue reading “Barcelona: Tapas 24 & Magic Fountain of Montjuïc”
Goodbye San Sebastian! These were our last meals in the city that topped the poll as the greatest gastronomic destination in the world. San Sebastian beat out Tokyo, Sydney and Paris for the top spot for foodies and I agree 100%! From Michelin 3 Star restaurants to pintxos bars the food never failed to amazeContinue reading “San Sebastian: Gran Bar La Espiga and Rojo Y Negro”
As I mentioned before San Sebastian is well know for all the Michelin Starred restaurants but it’s also very popular for pintxos (pinchos) or tapas. You can say we went to San Sebastian just to EAT! We didn’t waste any time. Our first night we walked from our hotel Parte Vieja (Old Part) where allContinue reading “San Sebastian: Pintxos Bar Hopping”
