Our 12 hour celebration of my friend Deb’s birthday continued with dinner at Gyumon Restaurant. It’s not a new restaurant. It doesn’t have ambiance and the location is not ideal since it’s right next to a gentleman’s club. What it does have is pretty good food.

Yoogane at Il Terrazzo
I seldom venture to Quezon City to eat but my friends and I just came from the wake of my dear, dear friend and by tradition or superstition (which I don’t believe) we had to pass by somewhere before heading home. We decided to go to Il Terrazo along Tomas Morato for more options.
Melbourne: Han Guuk Guan
I wasn’t surprised that my friend Deb was able to find an authentic Korean restaurant in Melbourne’s CBD tucked away in an alley behind Victoria street. She knows all the hidden gems in Melbourne thanks to her sources who know good food.
Panfried Tofu With Spicy Sauce
Here’s a simple Korean recipe for tofu. Whenever I need a recipe for Korean food the first place I look is Maangchi’s site. A friend told me about Maangchi.

Lunch at BonChon Philippines
The first time I tried BonChon was in 2008 when I was in Virginia. I didn’t even have a blog then. I loved it so much that I had to eat BonChon every time I went to the USA. I hoped someone would bring it to Manila and in November 2011 my wish came trueContinue reading “Lunch at BonChon Philippines”
Dinner at Vit Goel ToFu (Lighthouse Tofu)

The one page menu was brief and contained all myContinue reading “Dinner at Vit Goel ToFu (Lighthouse Tofu)”

We had an early dinner at 5:30 at Eataly. That plus a couple of hours of shopping and our stomachs were grumbling already. So with the help of Yelp we found Han Bat Restaurant.

Lunch at Wood Nymph Korean Restaurant

Korean bean paste and sesame oil w/ pepper dipping sauces It looked fatty but it was actually leaner than the beef afterContinue reading “Lunch at Wood Nymph Korean Restaurant”
Bingsoo at Le Matin De Paris
After dinner at Honey Pig, Sharon said we were going to have bingsoo for dessert? Bing what? I couldn’t wait to find out what she was talking about. When we got there I was surprised to see the name, Le Matin De Paris. It was a French bakery owned by Koreans. It looked like yourContinue reading “Bingsoo at Le Matin De Paris”
