If you’re like me I learn about new restaurants through social media, whether through a post on Instagram or an article on the web. I’ve never heard of Mateo’s before even though I’ve most likely passed by it. My partner chose the place for our meeting because he passes by it all the time.
If you know me or are a regular reader of this blog then you’ll know I’m a matchaholic. The best places to get the widest choices of matcha products are Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

It’s a continent I’ve never been to and I wanted to see the beauty in that side ofContinue reading “South Africa: Overnight in Johannesburg”

It’s been a while since my last visit to their beautiful Glorietta branch and the owner Linfred told me they had new dishes so IContinue reading “New Dishes at Wee Nam Kee”
Can you believe I’ve never tried a Magnum Bar before I went to Magnum Manila? What better time to try this popular ice cream than at their flagship cafe in SM Aura.
UPDATE: July 13, 2014 Yesterday we ate at Century Seafood again just a little over a month from the last time. We had the same Buddha Jumped Over the Wall plus a few new dishes which I really liked. I decided to just add the pictures to this post.
